Golovkin’s Showing versus Jacobs Means Nothing Regarding Canelo

GOLOVKIN-CANELO IN LIGHT OF GOLOVKIN-JACOBS -- If you've been a follower of the sport of boxing or, say, even the NFL, hopefully you've gleaned that no fighter or team is as bad as they looked during their most recent setback, nor are they as spectacular as they performed on their recent best day.

A Night of Unbridled Violence at Madison Square Garden

A NIGHT OF UNBRIDLED VIOLENCE -- Sometimes—not very often—but sometimes the  intensity, ferocity and even  cruelty that fighters like Mike Tyson, Nigel Benn, Tony Ayala Jr., and Julio Cesar Chavez, Sr. brought to the ring could make a bout almost too edgy to watch. They and a few others engaged in fights that had you on the edge of your ...

Golovkin-Jacobs: A Bigger “Drama Show” Than Expected

GOLOVKIN-JACOBS -- On March 18, Gennady Golovkin and Danny Jacobs met in the ring at Madison Square Garden in a middleweight title-unification bout.

The 50 Greatest Featherweights of all Time Part Four: 20-11

GREATEST FEATHERWEIGHTS, PART IV -- Monsters abound in this, the penultimate installment of The Fifty Greatest Featherweights of all time. That said, the demarcation line between these fighters who make up the second clutch, and the legends of fistic dominance who pack the top ten is reasonably clear.  Cases can be made for the #10 slot fo...

Three Punch Combo: Notes on GGG, the World Boxing Super Series and More

THREE PUNCH COMBO: Boxing can be a funny sport. Often it is not if a fighter wins but how he looks in winning that determines his future fights. Sometimes, not looking sharp in winning can open the door to bigger fights more than looking impressive in victory. This may be the case for Gennady Golovkin following his twelve round unanimous decis...

15 Rounds and a Few Other Changes Might Quell These Controversial Decisions

A FORMULA FOR QUELLING CONTROVERSIAL DECISIONS -- During this month of March we've seen two high profile title bouts in New York City in boxing's two most glamor divisions outside of heavyweight.

The Hauser Report: Conlan, Mayweather, McGregor, Chocolatito, and Rungvisai

Thus, it’s not surprising that boxing is careening toward the farce that is Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor. That became clear on St. Patrick’s Day (March 17), when Irish Olympian Michael Conlan made his professional debut in The Theater at ...
