Kovalev KOs Mohammedi; Gonzalez Robbed Kovalev KOs Mohammedi; Gonzalez Robbed
By Derek Bonnett Going into the July 25 boxing card featuring Sergey Kovalev and Jean Pascal in separate bouts, the focus was on each man winning in Las Vegas, Nevada to set up a rematch of their memorable war from this past March. In boxing, the best laid plans of mice and men often go awry, but more commonly, the bird in the hand does not measure up to just one waiting in the bush. By night’s conclusion, Kovalev provided fans with something close to the expectation, but Pascal found

By Derek Bonnett Boxing at its produces action that is perhaps unrivalled in all of sport. However, boxing is far more likely to produce inconclusive action in comparison to football, baseball, basketball, hockey, an tennis. For in all these other contests, due to their points systems, the winner is definitively the winner. In the Sweet Science fans sometimes have to digest an outcome where the winner really didn’t do much to be considered better than his opponent. This weekend, both T
Herrera Edges Lundy; Head Clashes End Bout Early Herrera Edges Lundy; Head Clashes End Bout Early
By Derek Bonnett Mauricio Herrera just might be the unluckiest fighter in the sport of boxing. In 2014, he lost two highly controversial decisions to Danny Garcia and Jose Benavidez in WBA 140 pound title bouts. Herrera took on veteran Hank Lundy at Sports Arena, Los Angeles, California, USA in a bid to claim the vacant NABF 140 pound title. Given the experience of Lundy and the clash of styles, Herrera figured to be in another close contest.

By Derek Bonnett On July 4 at Centro de Usos Multiples, Mazatlan, Sinaloa, Mexico, Pedro Guevara put his WBC 108-pound title on the line against fellow Mexican Ganigan Lopez in a twelve round bout.

Wilder Pedestrian in Title Defense; Pedraza Virtuoso Wilder Pedestrian in Title Defense; Pedraza Virtuoso
By Derek Bonnett Most boxing writers probably expected to spend more time writing about Deontay Wilder’s first title defense against Eric Molina than the champion spent fighting. Well, we were wrong. Showtime covered the live action of Wilder’s successful first title defense at the Bartow Arena in Birmingham, Alabama, USA. This was a first for the state of Alabama, hosting a world heavyweight title match-up.
Zlaticanin Romps Redkach; Williams Wins Patiently Zlaticanin Romps Redkach; Williams Wins Patiently
By Derek Bonnett Showtime Extreme covered live undercard action at the Bartow Arena in Birmingham, Alabama, USA. The two contests whet the appetites of boxing fans in Alabama to see WBC heavyweight titlist Deontay Wilder make the first defense of his crown. The first bout featured rising contender Julian Williams in a junior middleweight contest against an overmatched foe, but the WBC lightweight title eliminator featured what looked to be a sizzling match-up in paper between Ivan Redkach and D
Crespo Stops Cortes; Bentley Surprises Bonilla Crespo Stops Cortes; Bentley Surprises Bonilla
By Derek Bonnett The Danbury Ice Arena played the unlikely host to an eight bout boxing card assembled by Prize Promotions. The card, replete with neophytes and unheralded practitioners of the Sweet Science, delivered some surprising results and proved to have solid matchmaking even if the results did little to shape the world boxing scene. Prize Promotions deserves credit for getting local fans out to an exciting night at the fights. Former world light heavyweight champion Chad Dawson and
DeGale Captures Title in Golden Performance DeGale Captures Title in Golden Performance
By Derek Bonnett So often when history is on the line, final results never quite match the expectations or perceived script of things to come. In a Boston boxing ring, James Degale and Andre Dirrell put together twelve spirited rounds replete with ebbs and flows fitting enough to scribe a new chapter in the history of professional prizefighting. The Agganis Arena in Massachusetts, USA played host to the twelve round IBF super middleweight title fight brought to fans in the latest installment
Golovkin Squashes Monroe Like "Worm" Golovkin Squashes Monroe Like "Worm"
By Derek Bonnett Willie Monroe Jr. came into boxing with a famous name made notable by his great uncle, known as "The Worm", who spoiled Marvin Hagler’s apple by handing him his second professional defeat. Rumored to be an underdog as great as 60-1, Munroe entered the ring against Gennady Golovkin with the credentials of a solid, albeit rising, contender best known for his ESPN success after winning last year’s "Boxcino" middleweight tournament. Golovkin, a gentleman executioner,
