By John G. Thompson – Tonight on ESPN2’s Friday Night Fights series, power punching prospect Don “Da Bomb” George (24-3-1, 21 KO’s) faces fifty-four fight veteran David “The Destroyer” Lopez (41-13, 23 KO’s) in George’s hometown at the UIC Pavilion in Chicago, Illinois. Also in action, former champion Kermit Cintron (33-5-1, 28 KO’s) looks to keep his career alive against Adrian “Tigre” Granados (11-2-1, 7 KO’s), a fighter ten years younger than Cintron.

By Prince Dornu-Leiku – The up and coming Ghanaian boxing stallion, Frederick Lawson meets his opponent in the body of Isaaac Sowah for the IBF Africa Welterweight belt Friday night at the Accra Sports Stadium on the undercard of Fresh King Entertainment’s first ever promotion featuring former world champion, Joseph King Kong Agbeko to be screened live on Metro TV across Africa and many other parts of the world.
Unbeaten Lawson has won 18 of his 19 professional fights via knockout and has been tipped by many local boxing connoisseurs to bring world title glory one day. His credentials for the big stage however face a strong challenge from experienced Isaac Sowah alias The Hammer who has been talking tough and is keen to exploit the situation to revive his career.

By Vladimir S: A lean looking heavyweight Odlanier Solis (18-1, 12 KO’s) will be in action tonight against the raw but powerful unbeaten Leif Larsen (17-0, 14 KO’s) in a scheduled 12 round bout at the Universal Hall in Berlin, Germany. Solis, 32, will be defending his IBF Inter-Continental heavyweight title that he won in his previous fight against Konstantin Airich.
Solis has fought only once in the past two years after been stopped in the 1st round by WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko in March 2011. That fight was a costly one for Solis, as he tore up his right knee in the fight and had to have surgery. Continue reading →
By Prince Dornu-Leiku – The countdown is over and the moment of truth is upon us later tonight in the Ghanaian capital, Accra when former world champion, Joseph King Kong Agbeko finally returns to the ring for the first time since December 2011, exactly six years to the day since he last fought in the homeland and on his 33rd birthday.
Agbeko takes on Colombian slugger, Luis Melendez for the IBO Bantamweight title at the Accra Sports Stadium and after both boxers weighed-in on Thursday afternoon, the stage has been set for the headline bout of Agbeko’s own newly formed Fresh King Entertainment’s maiden ever promotion, incidentally the first world title fight in Ghana in over 25 years.
Coming in the wake of a Congress and elections which elected Peter Zwennes as the new President of the sport in Ghana, young prospects Sena Agbeko and Fred Lawson also feature on the action packed bill expected to attract many Ghanaian boxing greats, administrators, officials, fans and enthusiasts including some of Agbeko’s musician and actor friends to the national stadium.

By Kevin Chittenden: British/Commonwealth middleweight champion Billy Joe Saunders (17-0, 10 KO’s) proved tonight that he’s good enough to beat a domestic level junior middleweight fighting out of his weight class in beating Matthew Hall (25-7, 17 KO’s) by a 12 round unanimous decision at the York Hall, Bethnal Green, London, United Kingdom.
The judges scored it 120-108, 120-109, 119-110. After the fight, Hall said he’s retiring from the sport. He doesn’t want to take punishment needlessly. Someone should have told Hall ahead of time that it’s not a good idea for him to be fighting at middleweight, and definitely not against a fighter like Saunders. The fight was one-sided in every round with Saunders working Hall like he was a punching bag. Continue reading →
By Anthony Jeffrey: It’s been almost 2 years since David Haye’s fuse was snuffed out by Wladimir Klitschko. However, after muting the trash-talking Londoner it’s pretty much been business as usual for the Klitschkos – back to beating down unknown, out-of-shape bums.
But even though his self-proclaimed prophecy didn’t quite manifest against Wlad, Haye still has a good enough case for taking on Vitali Klitschko. True, the brash Brit got soundly beaten and was unable to land anything meaningful on Wlad, but it was more a failure to live up to expectation than an actual bad performance. He spent most of the fight on the outside looking for that one big shot because he just couldn’t get by Wlad’s jab. He basically talked himself into his own grave.
After everything was said and done, I wouldn’t blame Wlad for not giving Haye a re-match, but a Vitali vs Haye fight would possibly create even more interest. Let’s face it; David Haye is still the most exciting fighter in the division.

By Bill Phanco: If you were one of the many boxing fans interested in seeing a rematch between WBO welterweight champion Tim Bradley (30-0, 12 KO’s) and Ruslan Provodnikov (22-2, 15 KO’s) in order to clear up the confusion about their fight last Saturday night, you can forget it because it’s not happening.
Bradley’s promoter Bob Arum has ruled out a rematch between the two at least for the time being. Arum does leave open the possibility of matching them up again one of these days in the future, but not until they’ve faced other guys. Arum wants to move Bradley forward and match him three potential opponents: Manny Pacquiao, Juan Manuel Marquez or the winner of the Brandon Rios vs. Mike Alvarado fight. Continue reading →
By Jeff Sorby: WBO super bantamweight champion Nonito Donaire’s trainer Robert Garcia doesn’t see WBA super bantamweight champion Rigondeaux as doing any better than Fernando Montiel did against Donaire. Donaire destroyed Montiel in two rounds a couple a years ago in a fight that many boxing fans thought it would be a competitive match-up going into the fight. Continue reading →
By Rob Smith: The demand for the cheap tickets for the April 20th fight between WBC junior middleweight champion Saul “Canelo” Alvarez (41-0-1, 30 KO’s) and WBA champion Austin Trout (26-0, 14 KO’s) has been overwhelming for their fight that will take place at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas.
According to Oscar De La Hoya, the president of Golden Boy Promotions, over 26,000 tickets have already been sold for the fight. The 72,000 seat Alamodome stadium was restructured to fit 30,000 fans. That’s going to need to be bumped up at least by 10,000 to 40,000 in order to accommodate the potential fans that will purchase tickets from now until the fight on April 20th.
The tickets went on sale on March 11th, and they’ve been selling at an alarming rate ever since. Canelo helped the process along by requesting that the lowest cost tickets sell for $10 so that the fans from around the area can have their entire families come to see him fight. Continue reading →
By James Stillerman at Ringside – Former IBO super middleweight title holder, Peter “The Pride of Providence” Manfredo Jr. kept his latest comeback alive, as he outwork and out landed the Seattle, WA native, Walter “2 Guns” Wright in front of a sold out hometown crowd at the Twin River Event Center in Lincoln, Rhode Island en route to an ten round unanimous decision victory by scores of 98-93, 100-90 and 97-93. “Unfinished Business” was sponsored by Jimmy Burchfield`s Classic Entertainment and Sports, Inc.
“I`d give myself a B- tonight. I`m glad I won, however, I wanted to fight better tonight and get a knockout in front of all my fans, but it just didn`t happen” said Manfredo Jr. the runner up on season of the Contender. “It was difficult fight for me because I trained for Joey Spina who is a strong powerful puncher and then three weeks before the fight, Spina got hurt and I had to train for a totally different fighter with a very different fighting style in Wright who is a slick counter puncher. I`m professional and I made the best of the situation.” Continue reading →
By James Stillerman at Ringside – It was a happy Saint Patrick`s day for the several hundred fans who packed the Tsongas Center at UMass Lowell as they saw their hometown fighter, “Irish” Joe McCreedy prevail over Michael “Flash” Walchuk by way of a eight round unanimous decision by scores of 76-76, 78-74 and 77-75, in a fight he dominated throughout and almost had Walchuk knockdown several times. This fight was presented by Chicago Fight Club Promotions, CFC. Continue reading →
By John G. Thompson: Another black eye for boxing comes not in the ring but in the antics of one of the sport’s most promising young champions. Adrien “The Problem” Broner (26-0, 22 KO’s) spent a little time in jail on Monday after being arrested in Miami Beach, Florida on battery charges. Broner posted his mug shot on Instagram briefly, before removing it. The mug shot showed his booking time (10:13 am) and his bond amount was set at $1,500. So far details of the “battery” have not surfaced. As of now, it appears that Broner posted the bond and was released.
Broner tweeted at about 7:30 EST that evening, “They tried to keep a nigga locked down in MIA.”
At just twenty-three years of age, Broner is the current WBC lightweight champion having moved up from the super featherweight division, where he briefly ruled as the WBO champ. Broner won the WBC belt from Antonio DeMarco in December of 2012 in a dominant performance some view as his “coming out party,” and defended it in his most recent bout this past February, again dominating his opponent en route to a victory by stoppage.

By Bill Phanco: Undefeated heavyweight contender Robert Helenius (18-0, 11 KO’s) will be fighting this Saturday night in a scheduled 10 round bout against Britain’s Michael Sprott (37-19, 17 KO’s) in Helenius’ second fight of his comeback from a serious injury when they meet on the undercard of the Arthur Abraham vs. Robert Stieglitz 2 fight at the GETEC Arena in Magdeburg, Germany. Continue reading →
By Jeff Sorby: Former WBA heavyweight champion David Haye (26-2, 24 KO’s) has decided to go the mandatory route to get a title shot against one of the Klitschko brothers after meeting with his trainer/manager Adam Booth to decide which way to go in his career. Haye plans on fighting next on July 6th at a still to be determined venue in the UK against possibly Alexander Povetkin, Robert Helenius or Johnathon Banks.
Haye, 32, had tried to circumvent going the mandatory challenger route by calling out the Klitschkos to try and entice them into a fight by letting them know how much money they would get for fighting him. However, Wladimir Klitschko already beat Haye two years ago by a lopsided 12 round unanimous decision, and he’s not interested in the least to fight him again.
WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko seems to be debating whether to continue his boxing career, and he too isn’t interested in facing Haye. The guy for Haye to target obviously is Wladimir because he does plan on continuing to fight, but Haye will have to lock himself down as his mandatory challenger before Wladimir will be forced to either fight him or give up his title by vacating it or having it stripped from him.

By Michael Collims: Former IBF/WBA light welterweight champion Amir Khan (27-3, 19 KO’s) only has to win one fight against Julio Diaz (40-7-1, 29 KO’s) next month on April 27th to find himself waiting for the winner of the four-fighter 140 pound tournament put together by Golden Boy Promotions.
Khan, 26, will face the winner of a set of matches in November involving WBA/WBC light welterweight champion Danny Garcia (25-0, 16 KO’s) facing Zab Judah (42-7, 29 KO’s) on April 27th at the Barclays Center, in Brooklyn, New York, USA, and Lucas Matthysse (33-2, 31 KO’s) vs. IBF light welterweight champion Lamont Peterson (31-1-1, 16 KO’s) on May 18th at the Boardwalk Hall, in Atlantic City, New Jersey, USA.
The winner of the Judah-Garcia & Peterson-Matthysse will face each other in a fight that could take place in the summer. The winner of that fight will then face Khan in November. In other words, Khan only has to fight one each opponent in non-top 15 ranked welterweight Julio Diaz, whereas the fighter that meets him in the finals will have to have gone through two tough fights to get to Khan.
