    As Conor McGregor prepares for the biggest fight of his life just one month away as he faces Floyd Mayweather in a boxing match on Aug. 26 in Las Vegas, he’s moved his camp to Las Vegas where he’s been working with several new training partners. Retired boxing champion and Showtime color commentator Paulie Malignaggi joined the ranks of McGregor’s team last week when he showed up to offer the UFC champion some sparring rounds after a critical assessment of his chances to beat Mayweather in a boxing match. http://www.mmaweekly.com/paulie-malignaggi-critical-of-conor-mcgregors-knockout-power-for-boxing

    Good read. I myself think power and chins we all posses. But to me it is the timing of the punch landed, and also the timing of the punch received that produces the desired effects.

    Make it a double booking - AJ would KO the pair of them on the same night. And still not break sweat.

    Saturation. In the u.s., there are boxing matches on tv probably 4-5 times a week. ufc is on way less and on crappy ass channels no one knows about. so, the fans are so hungry for fights, they are willing to ppv. supply and demand. low supply, high demand.

    "Kinda stupid to just punch over & over for your entire life when there are so many other techniques to learn. If aliens were looking down & saw an MMA fight & a boxing match happening simultaneously they would think the boxers are retarded or something cause they just stand there & punch each other in the face over & over again lol" LOL

    well, if you're the best in ju jitsu, don't have public workouts showing off your boxing skills because guys like mexfighter will tear your ass apart every chance he gets. you don't see martin "el gallito" castillo doing ju jitsu moves at public workouts, do you?

    By: Staff reports | August 21, 2016 10:02 pm This is the first female pro fight I have got to watch on tv in english since I started boxing. (Way back in 2013 lol). It was a great and technically sound fight but I would have given it to Vincent as her punches had massive effect. Not quite sure what the judges were seeing here. Women's boxing on PBC and Claressa Shields winning 2x gold is a huge day. These fights are worth watching. It's a step in the right direction towards getting women's boxing televised and eventually increasing the pay for technically sound female pro's. The action and the skill are there. (Shout out to the haters, as well as all the peeps watching females on UFC that have no clue that women's boxing exists.) http://boxingjunkie.usatoday.com/2016/08/21/heather-hardy-tops-shelly-vincent-televised-womens-bout/ "Sunday was a big day for women’s boxing in America. In Rio De Janeiro, Claressa Shields, from Flint, Mich., won her second consecutive Olympic gold medal to become the first U.S. fighter, male or female, to win multiple gold medals. Far away, at Ford Amphitheater at Coney Island, N.Y., Brooklyn’s Heather Hardy remained undefeated with a hard-fought majority decision against Shelly Vincent, handing Vincent her first loss. It was the first women’s bout televised on NBCSN. The action was non-stop from the start as Vincent charged in early, looking to close the distance between her and the taller Hardy. Hardy moved around the ring more, looking for the right distance to attack the Providence, R.I., native. “This is definitely a win for women’s boxing,” said Hardy (18-0, 4 KOs). “We kept up a great pace throughout and the fans were invested the whole time. “Every time she crowded me, she would get off more punches. I wanted to keep the fight on the outside and when I did that I had a lot of success.” Hardy’s movement allowed her to create more angles for her attack as she varied her offense with overhand rights, jabs and hooks. Vincent was consistent countering, with her left hand finding the most success. Hardy threw 752 punches while Vincent threw 678 over the 10 two-minute rounds. Hardy connected on 251 punches to 194 for Vincent. “I thought I won the fight pretty convincingly,” said Hardy. “She only really caught me a few times the whole fight. I knew I had to be tactical to win the fight. Judging by the belt around my waist, I would rate my performance a 10.” The judges ruled it for Hardy by scores of 99-91, 97-93 and 95-95. Vincent (18-1, 1 KO) believed she did enough to win the fight. “I definitely thought I won the fight,” said Vincent. “I was coming forward and I landed the bigger shots. Everyone saw the fight. 'I got head-butted all night long. I came here and everybody told me I’d get robbed. I’ll take the rematch but I’m not playing by these rules. I want her to come up to Providence.' "

There isn't any doubt in the world that Berg will give Singer a fight, and it's no secret that Singer isn't at his best against a fast man who never stops hitting. Singer lost to Kid Chocolate in 12 rounds last August. And Ignacio Fernandez, who crowded the present king of all the lightweights, viciously enraged by being struck low, knocked Singer out in three rounds three months before that. No doubt Singer has improved a lot in the past year, and has the confidence that comes to any man who knocks out a champion, but that doesn't prove he can beat the British whirlwind. Singer looked like Terry McGovern in the quick knockout of Mandell, but he isn’t always such a punching wonder. Eight of his fights last year, aside from the one he lost to Kid Chocolate, went 10 rounds to a decision. Moorhead Daily News 11 April 1931 http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v466/robertsnell/edgren-1931-04-11.jpg Jack Dempsey said he'd never fight again, and a few days later stood right up in a Chicago court and offered to fight Harry Wills "any time the promoters put up that million dollars they offered." Well, you couldn't blame Dempsey for changing his mind if there's that much profit in it. Jack Dempsey never could be the iron fisted ring tiger he was when he battered the gigantic Willard into a helpless hulk. But he could be a very good fighter if he wanted to come back, even now. Dempsey is only a year older than Bob Fitzsimmons was when Bob knocked out Jim Corbett for the world's championship. He is four years younger than Fitzsimmons was when he put up the greatest fight of his life, battering the greatest heavyweight champion of them all, , Jim Jeffries, to a bleeding pulp in that San Francisco ring, smashing both hands in the vain effort to crush big' Jeff down, and being knocked out himself only when both hands were gone. Moorhead Daily News 18 April 1931 http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v466/robertsnell/edgren-1931-04-18.jpg There has been a lot of talk about the "slump" in boxing and much theorizing about what can possibly be wrong with the good old game that made popular world heroes of such characters as John L. Sullivan, Bob Fitzsimons, Jim Corbett, Jim Jeffries, Jack Dempsey, Joe Gans, Terry McGovern, etc., etc. One of boxing's troubles was over promotion. A good fighter might be worth what Jeffries and Corbett drew at the gate back in 1903, which was a modest $63,340. But it is impossible to think that a "championship contest" of only 10 rounds can by any miracle be worth $2,658,660, same being the amount paid in at the ticket offices when Dempsey and Tunney had their return match in Chicago. The first was a championship match, at a 20 round distance, and the men earned what they got when the winner's and loser's end together amounted to $43,68. Compare that to the $990,445.54 Tunney got at Chicago, and get a laugh. Moorhead Daily News 16 July 1931 http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v466/robertsnell/edgren-1931-07-06.jpg In one of the most sensational finishes seen in a heavyweight championship fight in many years. Max Schmeling knocked out Young Stribling in the 15th round, with less than 20 seconds to go. From the beginning of the sixth round, when Joe Jacobs sent Max out with the warning: "You've got to fight—it looks bad," It was Schmeling's fight all the way except in spots here and there. In the mere matter of landing blows Stribling scored well enough, but his hardest and most perfectly placed smashes on chin and body had no effect at all on the man of iron from Germany. Nothing seemed to hurt Max. He was hit by enough to knock out a dozen ordinary men, and his knees never shook. He was socked on the point of the chin with vicious uppercuts, and he grinned. The grin increased as the fight went on. Mick Hill has recently produced a worthy book on the English Prize Ring. For those of you that don't know Mick, he has long held an interest in boxing, and in particular, the days of bare-knuckle fighting. Mick has produced a 200-page book on the prominent boxers of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries and he has ensured that many of the lesser-known names of this period are included, in the form of mini-biographies. There are nearly 80 pugilists featured within the book and some of them will be new to even the most fervent follower of boxing during the bare-knuckle age. Two of the first three names included within the book, for instance, are Tom Pipes and Bill Gretting, and it is a welcome change to see the stories of men such as these recorded. As well as producing a page on each boxer which describes their achievements Mick has also taken the trouble to produce their fighting record and virtually all of them also have an illustration. Another welcome addition is the inclusion of the nickname, and so many of these boxers were well-known by their nickname. As an example, the exploits of Jeremy Massey aka "The Stunted Lifeguardsman" can be followed on page 184 and, as well as the biographical details relating to his career, which are spread across two pages, one call also see full details of his fight record. 18 contests are listed for the period between 1842 and 1856 and one will find that Massey was once proclaimed the "Best in the land at Featherweight". It is a nice little book and would be a welcome addition to the bookshelves of a boxing bibliophile. The price is £13.99. To purchase a copy please order from www.fastprint.net/bookshop or Amazon.
