BROOKLYN, NY (Oct. 15, 2013) – Barclays Center will host two of the borough’s favorite sons, former Five-Time, Two-Division World Champion Zab “Super” Judah and former Two-Time, Two-Division World Champion Paulie “The Magic Man” Malignaggi, on Saturday, Dec. 7 to decide who is the true King of Brooklyn. The 12-round welterweight bout will be televised live on SHOWTIME (9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT).
“I am happy to be back fighting in front of my hometown crowd,” said Judah, who is from Brownsville. “Paulie and I have known each other for a long time and we have a mutual respect for each other, but with this fight on Dec. 7 it is going to be like the ancient Roman days. There has to be a leader and that position belongs to me.”
“I have always admired Zab’s skills and his resume speaks for itself,” said Malignaggi, a native of Bensonhurst. “But this is the ‘Battle of Brooklyn’ and winning this fight is worth more than any world title.” Continue reading →

But how can this be combated in today’s recession crazed world and money driven society!? Continue reading →

The heavyweight boxing division is drowning. There is a clear lack of formidable competition for either of the Klitschko brothers, and as time goes on, the remaining tiny pool of fighters is becoming dangerously dry.
After claiming a victory over Alexander Povetkin, Wladimir Klitschko is back on the hunt for the next opponent. But who is there left to fight?
David Haye will always linger as one of the options for Wladimir, but it seems as though there is no more interest in seeing the two fighters face each other again. The boxing community is not in favor of their rematch, proposing that it would be a waste of time for everyone. Continue reading →
After speaking and meeting with a number of world class boxing trainers, David Price has made up his mind on who will train him from here on in. Price, the British and Commonwealth champion, recently split with Franny Smith and he will now work with Adam Booth.
Boxing News Magazine’s web site has reported this news and Price, who must come back after back-to-back losses to Tony Thompson, told B N how he feels Booth is the man to bring out his true potential.
“It’s a fresh start,” Price said. “I can leave behind what has happened but know that I’ve learnt from it. I’ve got the passion back now and am looking forward to getting on shape and putting a few things right. I asked Adam if I could have a chat and perhaps get some advice. We did a few sessions together just to see how it would work, and then he agreed to train me. I’ve got a good feeling about this move, and truly believe Adam is the man to bring out my true potential.” Continue reading →
Mario H. (Tampa, FL): There was a lot of discussion in the aftermath of Bradley/Marquez about Marquez being “robbed again”. How did you score the fight? And how did you rate the performance of both men?
Vivek W. (ESB): Personally, I had the fight scored 7 rounds to 5 in favor of Bradley. In all fairness, there were several rounds that were very tight that could have gone either way. Typically, we see the Champion get the nod in those rounds. My opinion on whether or not that should be a standard practice is irrelevant, as it has been that way for years, and my position won’t change it. Bearing that in mind, I think what we saw in the final analysis was in fact a product of that mentality. Continue reading →
Undefeated Aussie Heavyweight Lucas “Big Daddy” Browne is about to once again invade the United Kingdom when he faces Richard Towers on November 2nd in Hull, England. The bout is a final eliminator for the Commonwealth title, a belt that no Australian has held since the great Peter Jackson in 1892. Browne 17-0 (15 KO) departs Australia on October 20th, giving him plenty of time to acclimatise and to also fine tune at Ricky Hatton’s Hyde gym.
“I can’t wait to get over to the UK and perform. I’ve got plenty of British and Irish fans following me on twitter and facebook and I hope they either come on the night or tune into Sky Sports. Richard and I are good friends, but this is strictly business. He’s standing in the way of my goals, so I need to take care of that.” Continue reading →
Erik Skoglund (17-0, 9 KOs) is a man on a mission. At the age of 12, he wrote down a masterplan to become world champion one day. Ten years later, he is still undefeated on his way to glory. On Saturday night, the 22-year-old Swedish sensation faces Danish veteran Lolenga Mock (31-13-1, 12 KOs) for the European Union Light Heavyweight Title at the TRE-FOR Arena in Kolding, Denmark.

Q: Erik, apparently there will be a Swedish fan invasion in Kolding on Saturday… Continue reading →

Timothy Bradley was not the only fighter to receive a boost from his victory of the great Juan Manuel Marquez on Saturday night. In an indirect, but very real way, Manny Pacquiao also benefited from the outcome of the fight.
Marquez is Pacquiao’s biggest rival, and the man against whom he shall be most often judged. Fighters are measured against their greatest opponents. But the analysis does not end with a simple stat listing what the two men have done against each other. Evander Holyfield lost his trilogy to Riddick Bowe. When their careers are seen in the bigger picture, however, Holyfield is a clear Hall-of-Famer, while Bowe is thought of as a very good fighter who had held the title. Continue reading →

The Pugilist KOrner team will examine both fighter’s respective performances and how they were effective against their counterpart’s strengths and weaknesses. Continue reading →
The narrative for Timothy Bradley’s career before last night was that of negativity and spoiled success. Bradley has been a fighter more criticized than praised on his rise to prominence and his time in the limelight has been one of turmoil. Boxing fans and pundits alike have had a slow transition to giving credit to Bradley after his ugly technical decision win over Devon Alexander in 2011 and his controversial decision over pound for pound boxing icon Manny Pacquiao.
In a fight that was supposed to propel Bradley into stardom and millions of dollars he got his hand raised but it did little to advance him to the public and media. In a comeback defense of his World Boxing Organization Welterweight Title he was matched against an “easy” opponent that he was supposed to win and look good against in order to make people forget about the Pacquiao controversy.
