Looking Back At Edwin Rosario

By Matthew Hurley; He was blessed with smooth boxing skills and crunching power in both hands. But his inner demons led him down a self-destructive path that robbed him of his career, his family and his sense of self-worth. Looking Back At Edwin Rosario
Pacquiao Vs. Marquez IV – Overkill?

Pacquiao Vs. Marquez IV – Overkill?

By Matthew Hurley: When the announcement came that Manny Pacquiao will square off against Juan Manuel Marquez for a fourth time there was certainly a sense of been there, done that. Despite the skill level, excitement and controversy the first three bouts provided you almost get the feeling that these two evenly matched fighters are tired of seeing the other in the opposite corner.

Looking Back At Paul Pender

Looking Back At Paul Pender

By Matthew Hurley: For a man who defeated the great Sugar Ray Robinson twice for the middleweight crown, Paul Pender is sometimes forgotten in the pantheon of exceptional 160-pound fighters. A solid, rugged boxer who rose to the top near the end of his career, Pender sadly remains in a sort of fistic limbo outside of his hometown of Brookline, Massachusetts. Looking Back At Paul Pender
Meet Danny O’Connor

Meet Danny O’Connor

By Matthew Hurley: There is nothing quite like a gifted young fighter connecting on a visceral level with his hometown.

Pacquiao – Marquez:  Enough With Robbery Nonsense

Pacquiao – Marquez: Enough With Robbery Nonsense

By Matthew Hurley: Well, there’s nothing quite like a bit of controversy to get boxing fans all in a lather.

Thomas Hearns – A Hall Of Fame Career

By Matthew Hurley: There is a moment in every great athlete’s career that can be pointed to and qualified as the apex of his collective achievement. Disagreement amongst fans as to just what that particular moment was is usually born out of an almost fanatical love for the athlete in question. Debate in the world of sports has always been passionate, over-the-top and endless.  Thomas Hearns – A Hall Of Fame Career

Bernard Hopkins Continues To Add To His Legacy

By Matthew Hurley: His extraordinary professional career has stretched on for twenty-three years, and although there have been losses, both controversial and spot on, along with some uneven, tentative performances bordering on the tedious, he continues to persevere.

Victor Ortiz Comes Full Circle

Victor Ortiz Comes Full Circle

By Matthew Hurley There is something so uniquely human when a boxer finds his courage, his sense of self-worth, called into question by people who have never truly experienced what it’s like to suffer the punishment of fists slamming into your body and head. In a young, up-and-coming fighter the reaction is often muted bewilderment. Victor Ortiz Comes Full Circle
George Kimball – An Appreciation

George Kimball – An Appreciation

By Matthew Hurley: When my obsession with the sport of boxing fully blossomed in the early 1980s, writer George Kimball was my go-to-guy. His columns in the Boston Herald, along with my monthly purchases of The Ring and KO Magazine, became as important to me as any school textbook. George Kimball – An Appreciation
Will Klitschko And Haye Give Us What We Need?

Will Klitschko And Haye Give Us What We Need?

By Matthew Hurley: The upcoming heavyweight title bout between Wladimir Klitschko and David Haye has achieved something unexpected – it has garnered significant interest in a match up between two big men. It’s been quite some time since anyone outside of the Klitschko family and European fanbase has gotten jazzed about a Dr. Steelhammer title defense. Blame that on an American bias, Will Klitschko And Haye Give Us What We Need?
