In a highly controversial decision, Anthony Crolla (26-4-1,9 KO’s) labored to a 12 round majority over Gavin (37-3-1, 18 KO’s) to grab the vacant WBO Inter-Continental lightweight title at the Bolton Arena, Bolton, Lancashire, United Kingdom. The judges scores were 115-113 and 116-113 for Crolla, and 115-115 even. This was a really strange fight, because I’ve never seen a fighter get out-landed and outworked as much as I saw Crolla, and yet still win the fight. Talk about your controversial decisions.
It was a very questionable decision in that Rees landed more shots in every round of the fight, was the much busier guy in every round, and landed the cleaner shots. I saw Rees winning almost the rounds. The only rounds I could give Crolla were the 3rd and 11th, and even in those rounds, Rees outlanded him.
Crolla had the crowd in his favor big time in this fight, and the outcome was not surprising. Crolla was getting cheered even when he missing shots; whereas the crowd was deathly silent each time Rees landed, which quite often. Continue reading →
(Photo credit: Tom Casino/Showtime) Oscar De La Hoya thinks the September 14th match-up between Golden Boy promoted Saul “Canelo” Alvarez and Floyd Mayweather Jr. has a good possibility of breaking the pay per view record set between himself and Mayweather many years ago in 2007.
De La Hoya sees the Mayweather-Canelo fight being on that magnitude due to Canelo’s huge popularity in addition to Mayweather’s huge fan base. De La Hoya feels the mix of the two will create a huge demand for this fight on PPV come September 14th. Continue reading →
Matthew Macklin (29-4, 20 KO’s) is really up against it tonight with his fight against IBO/WBA middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin (26-0, 23 KO’s) on HBO. Golovkin’s trainer Abel Sanchez sees this fight not lasting more than 5 rounds tops, and the rest of the boxing world pretty much sees the same thing happening.
Macklin is simply made to order for Golovkin to knockout in their fight at the MGM Grand at Foxwoods Resort, in Mashantucket, Connecticut.
Sanchez said to RingTV “Macklin’s a warrior but he’s going to stand in front of get blown out…I don’t think the fight goes past 5. Continue reading →

Miami, Fl – Today, the Mayweather vs Alvarez press tour made it’s most recent pit stop in sunny South Beach! With thousands in attendance, the buzz was in full gear; but a late start gave many reason to wish Miami wasn’t home to the “Heat”, (pun intended), as the blazing sun shined bright! Shortly after 230pm Eastern, the two warriors crossed the red carpet and took the stage to state their case before following those words with a very tense face-off. Autograph sessions completed the session, but the energy transmitted between the two teams seem to set a very distinguished tone. One that will culminate in what could be an epic September evening. (And a shocker the morning after when headlines go to print)! Below is a visual display of what fight fans in were treated to in the “Magic City” of Miami:
(Vivek “Vito” Wallace can be reached on Left-Hook Lounge Radio every Monday night on “Left-Hook Lounge Radio”. Also, at Twitter (@vivekwallace747), Instagram (viveksview), and FaceBook).
This afternoon in the scorching hot humidity of South Florida, fight fans gathered outdoors at Bayfront Park in Miami, FL as the
Mayweather vs. Canelo press tour rolled into town.
Boxing’s biggest event and PPV ever “THE ONE: MAYWEATHER VS. CANELO” will take place this September 14th 2013 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas and live on SHOWTIME PPV. Continue reading →
Sergio Mora (24-3-2, 7 KO’s) defeated Grzegorz Proksa (29-3, 21 KO’s) tonight by a 10 round unanimous decision in a pot shot fight at the Veteran’s Coliseum, in Jacksonville, Florida. The judges scored it 96-94, 96-94, and 98-92. The 96-94 scores seemed fair. The 98-92 score was out of touch with the reality of the fight.
Mora won, but it was close and it was very ugly because both of these guys were throwing mostly single shots all night. It was a lot of defense, and lot of head movement without a lot of power. Proksa came into the fight with a reputation for being a hard puncher, but he didn’t look very power tonight, and of course neither did Mora. Continue reading →

HATTON PROMOTIONS prospects Ryan Burnett and Zhanat Zhakiyanov proved why they are earning names for themselves in the bantamweight division on Friday night.
The Ricky Hatton-trained punchers scored impressive stoppages over their respective foes on a show promoted in association with Jane Wilton at the Holiday Inn in Belfast.
Zhakiyanov (20-1) kept busy ahead of his likely European title challenge against Stephane Jamoye by becoming the first fighter to halt Spain-based Nicaraguan Michael Escobar.
The Kazakhstani, fighting under the stewardship of Hatton for the first time, hurt his opponent on several occasions before the referee stepped in during the fourth round. Continue reading →

Floyd Mayweather Jr. (44-0, 26 KO’s) thinks WBA/WBC junior middleweight champion Saul “Canelo” Alvarez (42-0-1, 30 KO’s) will be looking to strip away a significant portion of his fan base by beating him on September 14th in what will be the first time the 22-year-old Canelo has headlined a pay per view event on his own.
Mayweather doesn’t intend on letting the red-haired Mexican fighter do that to him, and he’s focused on using his vast experience to come up with a plan to beat him when they face each other at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada. Continue reading →
In many areas of life there are periods of excellence. Moments when a group of people explode with genius and set a higher standard for the future.

When Gennady Golovkin and Matthew Macklin made their HBO debut both exceeded expectations. Golovkin needed only 5 rounds to dispose of Grzegorz Proksa while Macklin showed his worth pushing Lineal Middleweight Champion Sergio Martinez proving his draw versus the aging Felix Sturm, which many believe he won, was no fluke. Has Golovkin been prematurely crowned a king of a division? Does Macklin have what it takes as a +650 underdog to pull off the upset? Answers to those questions will come Saturday night with the fans ultimately winning in what should be an entertaining fight.
The day he stepped foot in America and on the premium channel giant HBO, the fighter who goes by the alias “Triple G” made his presents felt in a major way. Golovkin catapulted himself near the top in the minds of hardcore boxing fans across the world, in less time than it takes the average person to say Gennady Gennadyevich Golovkin’s full name.

On the 29th of June, Matthew Macklin will be handed his third attempt at the professional fighter’s ultimate prize in challenging WBA middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin. Although there are considerably more avenues to take than days gone by, even consideration for a shot at a World Title lets you know you’re on the right path.
Macklin has the experience of the big occasion, few come bigger than the opportunity for an ‘Irishman’ to face lb for lb great Sergio Martinez on St Patricks day at Madison Square Garden.
A fight Macklin lost, but maintained stock after a good showing even forcing the champion to touch down in the 8th round. Preceding the Martinez fight, Macklin dropped a hugely controversial decision to hometown champion Felix Sturm. A faded Sturm, a solid champion in his own right seemed a little gun shy and overwhelmed by the pace set by Macklin. Although he came on strong late on, I scored the fight in Macklin’s favour as did the majority of media members at ringside. Macklin’ had every right to feel aggrieved and who knows? Maybe third time will be a ‘charm’ for the ‘Irishman’. Continue reading →
