Bute Scores TKO Over Joppy In First IBF Title Defense

By Sean Waisglass: Television cameras caught a poignant moment during Lucien Bute’s ring entrance inside Montreal’s Bell Centre Friday night. As the Romanian-born IBF super middleweight champ - who’s now a beloved adopted son of the Canadian boxing Mecca - walked the aisle in the midst of spotlights, a live band, and nearly 14,000 cheering hometown fans, the broadcast cut to a shot of challenger William Joppy, waiting in his corner, his face darkened by the shadows of the dimmed ring lights as Bute Scores TKO Over Joppy In First IBF Title Defense

Canadian Corner: Ngoudjo, Romanians rising, Demers and Heavyweight Champ loses

By Sean Waisglass: Montreal based Cameroonian Herman Ngoudjo is stepping back into the ring and onto the airwaves today in his first bout since his split decision loss on HBO to Jose Luis Castillo in January.

Should Holyfield's career be KO'd?

By Sean Waisglass: The recent death of Trevor Berbick and the resulting mention in his obituaries about how he was the last man to both fight and defeat Muhammad Ali jarred loose the disturbing memory of a televised pre-fight dressing room interview I’ve got on tape from that night in Nassau. Should Holyfield's career be KO'd?

Barrera saved his fire for division big-guns

By Sean Waisglass: HBO and Golden Boy Promotion's "Too Close To Call" card was a rare beast - a Pay Per View actually worth Paying To View. The mouth watering triple bill of Barrera/Juarez II, Vasquez/Gonzalez, and Guzman/Barrios gave fight fans a nice variety of punch for their dollar: a hard fought boxer vs. slugger match that saw the rise of a new future star in the sport, an all-out war featuring a division champ that's a candidate for Fight of the Year, Barrera saved his fire for division big-guns

Is Barrera over the hill, or still on top of it?

By Sean Waisglass: There's no arguing that the Barrera/Juarez rematch was somewhat of a letdown considering the intensity and drama of their first bout, when it looked like the aging superstar's career might finally be winding down as he worked to fend off the charges of the next generation. Is Barrera over the hill, or still on top of it?

Undefeated Jr Feather Molitor keeping busy

By Sean Waisglass: After a tumultuous year that saw Steve Molitor leave his long time trainer/manager, undergo eye surgery to correct his vision, wait out an eight-month layoff, and go through another trainer switch just weeks before a serious fight, things are finally back on track for the undefeated Canadian junior featherweight.

Will Toney escape Jones' shadow tonight?

By Sean Waisglass: You likely haven't read much mention of Roy Jones Jr. in James Toney's interviews leading up to his Saturday night bout with Dominic Guinn. Will Toney escape Jones' shadow tonight?

Klitschko vs Peter Afterthoughts

By By Sean Waisglass: The parallels between former heavyweight champion Lennox Lewis and Wladimir Klitschko are eerie. The two men, similar in size, style and stature, each won Super Heavyweight Gold medals as amateurs, and came up in the pro ranks as quietly confident multi-homed foreigners trying to make a name for themselves in a division that favours Americans. Klitschko vs Peter Afterthoughts

Klitschko vs Peter: Don't believe the heavy hype

By Sean Waisglass: There's much talk about how the winner of tonight's marquee heavyweight bout between Wladimir Klitschko and Samuel Peter will claim the title of "Heavyweight Hope" - a man 200 pounds-plus who'll pull the sport's most glamorous division out of the muddle and back into the spotlight.
