Should Boxing Fans Continue To Care About Titles?

Should Boxing Fans Continue To Care About Titles?By Sean Crose Should boxing fans care about titles anymore? Frankly, I don’t have the answer. The fact that it’s now a relevant and necessary question, however, tells us more about the state of boxing than many of us who love and follow the sport probably want to know. Truth be told, boxing titles have always stood on shaky ethical grounds. Always. There was once a time, for instance, when you couldn’t fight for the heavyweight title if you were black…

Wladimir Klitschko a Great Champion Who Looked His Age against Tyson Fury

Wladimir Klitschko a Great Champion Who Looked His Age against Tyson FuryBy Ivan G. Goldman No, Wladimir Klitschko wasn’t overrated. This is a heavyweight who’d owned one or more major belts for more than 10 years, and he ducked no one. He just got old. It happens. However, there was no excuse for his amazing lack of ability when it came to fighting on the inside. It hadn’t been terribly noticeable before last Saturday because he was so good at keeping opponents on the end of his jab. But new champ Tyson Fury got close time after time and knew what…

Tyson Fury Scores Huge Upset Over Klitschko

Tyson Fury Scores Huge Upset Over KlitschkoBy Sean Crose No one has ever – ever – held his hands low against Wladimir Klitschko, at least not in recent memory. Tyson Fury did that on Saturday in Germany, however. Yup, after looking quite good for two straight rounds, Fury decided to fight southpaw and let his hands hang. It was a surprising sight, to say the least. Still, the early portion of the heavyweight championship between the undefeated (24-0) Englishman and the highly regarded 64-3 Klitschko did not start off as a raucous affair. Fury continued fighting with …

Due to dreadful weather conditions, the ring has been covered with a giant blue tarp. It was covered for over 45 minutes and only removed when the ok was given by the athletic commission. The Main event was broadcast first due to ongoing weather concerns. The main …

Jackie Kallen: Cotto/Canelo scores stunk

Jackie Kallen: Cotto/Canelo scores stunkBy Jackie Kallen I have to start off by saying that I didn’t have a horse in this race. I like both fighters as men and as boxers. I didn’t bet on the fight and the outcome would not have changed my life in any way, shape, or form. However, I do have a problem with ridiculously lopsided scoring that flies against the wind of reality. However the fight may have looked on TV, it was a pretty close fight. Cotto did more than show up for a payday. He gave it his all…

Andre Ward wants respect

Andre Ward wants respectBy Jackie Kallen Following the Canelo/Cotto weigh-in at the Mandalay Bay, Andre Ward gathered a small group of reporters around a table and held a roundtable interview. Obviously disappointed that a knee injury derailed his scheduled fight on the undercard, he sat down to discuss the problems he’s encountering. Like Rodney Dangerfield, Ward says he gets no respect. “Both in and out of the ring it’s the same story. I’m damned if I do, damned if I don’t. If I object to something that’s been written about…

Locomotives Canelo Alvarez, Gennady Golovkin Steam toward Collision

Locomotives Canelo Alvarez, Gennady Golovkin Steam toward CollisionBy Ivan G. Goldman There was a moment toward the end of their battle Saturday night when Canelo Alvarez accidentally hit Miguel Cotto low. Alvarez, without waiting for the referee, stepped back to let his opponent recover. The two men touched gloves in respect, and Alvarez returned to punishing the outgunned Puerto Rican. It was a brief, splendid break in the violence, a vivid demonstration of the kind of champion Canelo would be. Now…
