TOTOWA, NJ – September 7, 2013 – Boxing is back on network TV on Saturday afternoon, November 16th when Tomasz “Goral” Adamek takes on Vyacheslav “Czar” Glazkov on NBC.

A painfully thin WBA/WBC junior middleweight champion Saul “Canelo” Alvarez (42-0-1, 30 KO’s) weighed in on Friday in the WBC mandated 7-day weigh-in for his fight with Floyd Mayweather Jr. (44, 26 KO’s) on September 14th, and not surprisingly Canelo is still over the catch-weight limit of 152 pounds.

Scotland’s two-weight world champion Ricky Burns (36-2) returns to the ring tonight to face the tough Mexican native Raymundo Beltran (28-6). Coatbridge fighter Burns will be making the third defence of his WBO lightweight title in front of an army of hometown fight fans at the Scottish Exhibition Centre, Glasgow.
Ricky will be eager to put on an impressive display after admitting he was far from his usual best in his win against the awkward Jose Gonzalez last time out.
Boxing is a gruelling, demanding sport that requires an unmeasurable amount of discipline and dedication, arguably more than any other professional game.
For many boxers trying to carve a living out of fighting, the rewards will not often measure to the perspiration and blood sacrificed. Continue reading →
Floyd Mayweather – Hey, how are you all doing today? Thanks for having me. Thank you, Kelly, for the kind words. Thank you, Leonard, for doing a tremendous job. You guys have worked day in and day out for me to be in the best position. Mayweather Promotions is going to continue to bring you guys the biggest and the best fights. I just want to thank everybody because without you guys and without the support and without the media outlets I don’t know where my career would be. So I want to thank everybody. That’s on my mind today.
Q – Obviously, your goal is to retire undefeated and have a Hall of Fame career. You’ve also talked about the mark you want to make as a promoter and that you are making as a promoter. When you think about your career being done and your children and your legacy, what do you want to look back on and say you accomplished not only as an undefeated fighter but the mark you left? What kind of things do you want to say?
Also, what do you look forward to in retirement – spending time with your kids, those types of things? Can you just kind of share that with us? Continue reading →

LONDON (6 Sept. 2013) – Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez is adamant his super-fight against pound-for-pound king Floyd ‘Money’ Mayweather will alter the course of boxing history, live and exclusive on BoxNation (Sky Ch. 437/Virgin Ch. 546).
Mayweather has long been considered the best fighter of his generation, with 44 wins out of 44 fights, testimony to his superiority over his peers. The American superstar seems destined to enter the boxing Hall of Fame as one of the greatest of all time, with his current unblemished record intact. Continue reading →
8 days to go before the September 14 big fight and many Mayweather ‘detractors’ are vocalizing Mayweather’s legacy. And some of what they’re saying isn’t good. Before I go into the details I just want to say Floyd’s body of work stacks up favorably with most if not ALL of the ‘All Time Greats’.
Mayweather detractors are still fault-finding when it comes to who Floyd fought or didn’t fight. A particular bone haters tend to pick is who Floyd supposedly ducked. Back in the day Floyd was ducking Chico Corrales (RIP), until he fought him. Around the same time Floyd was ducking Joel Casamayor and Acelino Freitas, both of whom Floyd called out but never received a response. Continue reading →
SAN DIEGO (SEPTEMBER 5, 2013)—He is undefeated in his last 21 fights that spans six and a half years and has won titles in two weight divisions, yet Ricky Burns will be fighting for a chance to fulfill a dream when he defends the WBO Lightweight championship against Ray Beltran this Saturday on AWE (Formerly Wealth TV) and www.awetv.com at 3pm eastern / 12 noon pacific.
Burns (36-2, 11 KO’s) of Coatbridge, Scotland which isn’t far from where the fight will take place in Glasgow, will be making the 4th defense of his Lightweight crown.
Burns trained well and is fully ready for what Beltran will bring to the table.
“Training went well. Sparring went fantastic and right now I am just trying to stay sharp and I am on weight. I look forward to the fight”, said Burns just three days before the contest. Continue reading →
Finchley heavyweight Dereck Chisora was buoyant yesterday about the prospect of fighting at The Copper Box and suggested that the Olympic Park arena would become his ‘new home venue’. Former World Title challenger Chisora, faces off against Edmund Gerber for the Vacant European Heavyweight Title on the 21st September at the venue, as chief support to Billy Joe Saunders and John Ryder’s British Middleweight Title showdown; the action will all be shown Live and Exclusive on BoxNation.
For Chisora, the meeting with Gerber represents the chance to capture the belt he was robbed of by ridiculous judges’ scoring when he faced Robert Helenius in Finland just under two years ago. Since then Chisora’s career has been a whirlwind of controversy and high profile fights that have made become one of the most recognisable figures in British boxing, however he hold no regrets over the robbery: “Yeah I was robbed, but the guy I faced (Helenius) hasn’t done anything since and is more or less done. But I’ve had some huge fights since then.’ Continue reading →
The former British Heavyweight and Light-Heavyweight champion retired after losing to German Walter Nuessal for the third time in February of 1937. He was only 26 years old which is very young for a talented boxer to retire; in fact some boxers have been known to have their professional debut at an age later than the Welsh man was when he retired. Despite only being a professional for some five and a half years Peterson had missed falling into the trap of saving some of his hard earned ring earnings and opened a sports shop in Bury which became successful.

The big-hitting German has sparked up a war of words with Chisora bringing up the Londoner’s well publicised incidents with the Klitschko brothers in the past and has promised to cure him in the ring with his fists. Continue reading →
You can call Cristobal Arreola a lot of names. The fact is no matter what version shows up he always brings a sturdy chin to the table, something Arreola will try to expose in his opponent Seth Mitchell. Come Saturday night one man will stay on major premium television. The other will be reduced to gatekeeper of an already weak division especially domestically.
When breaking down a Chris Arreola fight the first thing that comes to mind is weight.
On his way up as a prospect who graduated to contender Chris “The Nightmare” Arreola was an all action brawler that threw fluid accurate punches with power to boot.
