Unbeaten American heavyweight Malik Scott (35-0-1, 12 KO’s) sees British heavyweight Dereck Chisora (16-4, 10 KO’s) as mainly a marketing fighter that is best as selling his fights rather than in performing in them. Scott notes that Chisora was able to get a title shot against WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko with only 17 fights under his belt last year. Scott and Chisora will be fighting this Saturday night at the Wembley Arena in London, UK.
Scott said to BoxNation “He’s [Chisora] a salesman. It’s all calculated. He knows what he’s doing. It’s worked for him. I don’t know anybody that had 16 fights and was fighting for the Championship of the World. When you’re in with me you’re dealing with a lot of different attributes. We know about what he’s coming with. He’s coming right at me. I’m going to be setting traps and I’m going to be tagging him…if Dereck wants to f*** all his money up and act stupid, it’s on him. F*** his antics!” Continue reading
LOS ANGELES (July 17, 2013) — Former World Boxing Council (WBC) middleweight champion and Son of the Legend JULIO CÉSAR CHÁVEZ, Jr. returns to the ring in his 2013 debut when he faces No. 1 contender BRYAN “The Warrior” VERA. The Chávez vs. Vera rumble, scheduled for 12 rounds at the super middleweight division, will take place Saturday, September 7, at STAPLES Center in Los Angeles. This marks the first time Chávez has fought in Los Angeles since June 4, 2011, when he won the world title over undefeated interim world champion Sebastian Zbik.

Former WBA light welterweight champion Marcos Maidana (34-3, 31 KO’s) turns 30-years-old today, and he wants to know what WBA welterweight champion Adrien Broner (27-0, 22 KO’s) will be doing with his title now that he’s beaten former WBA champion Paulie Malignaggi by a 12 round split decision to take his title. Continue reading
Is it just me, or is Adrien Broner swiftly descending into the career abyss. If you have not yet seen the following video, please take a look and witness Adrien Broner using the restroom and then “wiping” and flushing money down the toilet.
Of course flushing money down the toilet makes more sense than donating it or using it to help others who actually need it to survive, at least to Broner it does. It is pretty pathetic how he is trying to not only mimic Mayweather Jr. but to do crazier and more absurd things in order to grab attention and portray himself as a very rich cocky champion.
After his lackluster performance against Paulie, the last thing Broner should be doing is trying to create hype and become the character that he will be unable to sustain. Continue reading
Malik Scott says he’ll demolish Dereck Chisora this Saturday night in more devastating style than fellow countryman Tony Thompson who destroyed David Price.
Chisora clashes with his American rival at Wembley Arena with the Vacant WBO International Heavyweight title on the line, live and exclusive on BoxNation (Sky Ch. 437/Virgin Ch. 546).
Price was smashed in five rounds by Thompson in the rematch earlier this month and Scott is confident he can bash the controversial Finchley puncher.
“I saw the fight between Thompson and Price and I knew that Thompson would do it again second time round, it was a great accomplishment, he’s a good, strong heavyweight,” Said Scott. Continue reading
US based Ghanaian boxer, Samuel Kotey Neequaye gets the opportunity to win his first title in the America when he faces 40 year old Dorin Spivey on August with the (North America Boxing Association) Lightweight belt at stake for the winner.
World title chasing Neequaye has impressed on all three of his fights in the US since arriving a little over a year ago. Now he gets the chance to win a title and edge closer to realizing the world championship glory when they square off at the Bob Carpenter Center, Newark, Delaware, USA on August 2. But in the vastly experienced Spivey (42-6, 30 KOs), the Ghanaian faces the sternest of tests but it’s one that the 30 year old Neequaye has sworn to ride no matter how tough it comes.
“It’s all about survival of the fittest and knowing where I’m coming from, nothing is going to stop me. I know he has been around for a long time but I’m also determined to write my own history so let’s go rumble in the ring. I’m ready,” Neequaye told the Ghana based newspaper BOXING IN GHANA from his US base.
Unbeaten reigning EBU and WBC Silver light-middleweight champion Sergey Rabchenko stopped experienced and tough Georgian Gari Abadjian in the third round of a scheduled ten in Minsk last night (July 16).
With Ricky Hatton in his corner, Sergey looked very sharp and did not give any chances to his opponent, who had previously gone the distance with the like of Valery Brazhnik, Ruben Varon, Mehdi Bouadla and Sofian Cherfioui.
Following Ruben Varon’s surprise inside the distance defeat to Rafael Chiruta at the weekend, Sergey now finds himself without an official challenger again.
The EBU should nominate a new official opponent shortly, but after the decision of Emmanuelle Della Rosa to pull out of the position and the “accident” of Varon, it seems that there are not much people willing to challenge the Belarusian puncher. Continue reading

First off I will start in congratulating Kell Brook on decent performance against a very tough, strong and always game Carson Jones. Even though Kell was fighting at a catch weight of 152 lbs due to injuries preventing him from having a successful training camp he still managed to look good at a weight he is not ready move up to just yet!
As fan of blood and guts warriors i would like to mention a thank you to Carson Jones for taking the 2nd fight and even agreeing to fight at a higher weight this time to suit the bookies favourite fighter to win, if Jones had not taken this fight due to the added stipulations it would have raised numerous questions amongst the fans about Kell’s desire to be a true champion and his promotional teams confidence regarding Kell’s talent. I can only hope Jones got paid well for the fight and gets some good fights going forward to further his career. Continue reading
Unbeaten Keith Thurman (20-0, 18 KO’s) will be looking to pick up the interim WBA welterweight title this month against Diego Chaves (22-0, 18 KO’s) this month in a fight on July 27th televised by Showtime from the AT&T Center in San Antonio, Texas.
If the 24-year-old Thurman can win this fight he’s going to then be putting a lot of pressure on WBA welterweight champion Adrien Broner to make a big decision about whether he feels it’s worth it to hold onto the WBA title and face the dangerous Thurman or if it would be better off giving up the strap and looking for safer fights.
It’s an important move for Broner because if he takes the fight against Thurman, he’ll be taking a huge risk with his career because Thurman would have a big size advantage over Broner if that fight were to be made. Continue reading
Former IBF/WBC welterweight champion Andre Berto (28-2, 22 KO’s) says he’ll be going back to the basics in his fight against Jesus Soto Karass (27-8-3, 17 KO’s) this month in their fight on July 27th at the AT&T Center, in San Antonio, Texas, USA.
In going back to the basics, Berto will be getting rid of the shoulder roll defense that he experimented with in his last fight against Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero last November and going back to his old defensive style.
Berto tried out the shoulder roll and it was a disaster with Guerrero hitting him nearly at will for 12 rounds in beating Berto by a 12 round unanimous decision. Continue reading
Dereck Chisora (16-4, 10 KO’s) has a tough fight on his hands against undefeated American heavyweight Malik Scott (35-0-1, 12 KO’s) this Saturday night in London, UK. The fight is scheduled for 10 rounds instead of 12, so that’s something that could possibly help Chisora because he’s not going to be able to out-box a fighter like Scott.
Chisora believes it’s going to be a fairly easy fight, but his recent performances don’t suggest that’s possible.
Chisora said to the Telegraph, “I’m going to do a real good job on this boy and pack him back off to America, defeated…I’m happy now that I’ve looked into his eyes and I see the boy is scared.” Continue reading
If the following is true, than the September 14th fight night will be one of the best PPV cards in a very long time.
It appears that Austin Trout might be facing Erislandy Lara at the MGM Grand’s Garden Arena as an undercard fight of the Mayweather Jr. vs. Canelo bout. At this time, while we haven’t yet heard anything solid from the promoters or the fighters themselves, rumors as well as this fight showing as scheduled on BoxRec.com have people buzzing with excitement. Continue reading
It’s the middle of a magical year in a magical decade and we are in a magical place for boxing. Only boxing royalty is present this night, that and the finest, most gifted artists, writers and performers of the day. The one and only Miles Davis, enveloped in silhouette, plays for the guest of honour, while Sugar Ray’s fellow boxing masters, the ones he has personally invited to his latest post-fight celebration, sit and drink and revel and talk boxing and money and fame and immortality as they bask in the glory they have each long since grown accustomed to enjoying.
Archie Moore, the seemingly ageless light-heavyweight champion, sits at the piano, almost silently tickling the keys as accompaniment to the heavenly playing of the jazz great. Joe Louis, arguably the finest heavyweight of all time, sits and sips on a short, “The Brown Bomber” looking slightly uneasily towards the door as he does so. Then the music stops and our hero makes his entrance. Continue reading
Billy Joe Saunders: ‘I win because I’m younger, fresher, more skilful, have better pedigree and greater ring craft
Hatfield traveller Billy Joe Saunders is chomping at the bit to add his name to Britain’s list of world class middleweight talents.
And the 2008 Beijing Olympian knows that impressive victories over unbeaten rivals Gary ‘Spike’ O’Sullivan at Wembley on Saturday, then Islington’s John Ryder at the Copper Box in September will place him firmly into the mix, alongside Martin Murray, Matt Macklin and Darren Barker. Continue reading
