    Whyte's got no amateur experience, little pro experience and is batting way above his average for a short spell at the moment. Lets not get carried away here. Wilder will be a good payday for Whyte but he get a proper schooling. He wont be able to shoulder barge and elbow Wilder the way he bullied Parker - who's body language said to me he didnt want to be in the arena never mind the ring. I think Whyte beats Povetkin, Breazeale and Miller but not Fury, AJ, Wilder or Ortiz.

    Best cruiserweight in the world in his day. Not seen many better at CW. Threw it all away for a division he wasnt a natural in plus all the dollar sloshing around. Likes to pretend he is "from the streets" but he actually had a middle-class upbringing. No one wil miss him now - a sad legacy and will be remembered more for his shameless ducking outta fights with faux injuries than his prowess at CW. Good riddance. He now has a stable of up'n comers under the "Hayemaker Ringstar" banner inc HW Joe Joyce and MMA 'star' MVP who has now won 2 boxing matches by KO. See my Week-24 posts for the action...

    Former welterweight champion Victor Ortiz surrendered to police in Oxnard, California, on Tuesday after he was charged with three counts of felony sexual assault. According to TMZ Sports, a woman said Ortiz sexually assaulted her at a home March 19. He has been charged with forcible rape, forcible oral copulation and forcible digital penetration. The Associated Press reported Ortiz was released on $100,000 bail. Ortiz has a history of legal trouble. In 2015, he was arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weaponduring a Kenny Chesney concert at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California. Ortiz later pleaded guilty to misdemeanor battery and received three years' probation.

    Coming forward is good, but one still have to throw and land and be effective with the coming forward, "not saying Canelo did not throw and land" but coming forward is an attribute that is greater rewarded if no one throws or lands a punch, then the one coming forward and pressing the issue can be rewarded for the aggressive pressure. The fight was close, and in the end 3G after the fact could have done a bit more, but at this level of competition one also has a responsibility to his self to not get knocked out by taking risks.

    With Porter's style Garcia will be forced to fight more than he would like to, the best man will win.

    Uncle Al, at it again BREAKING: PBC, FOX FINALIZE MULTI-YEAR DEAL; NETWORK WILL PROVIDE LARGE BUDGET When Al Haymon formed Premier Boxing Champions in early 2015, his vision was simple: buy television time on major networks, and in a few years, flip the model and receive license fees in return. As PBC’s deal with ESPN and NBC expired, with nothing to show for it, it appeared Haymon’s ambitious plan abjectly failed. Not so fast. Haymon maintained a relationship with Fox, a network he made time-buys with, and his strategy worked. PBC and Fox have finalized a long-term deal for fights to appear on both Fox and FS1 with an annual boxing budget that eclipses $60 million, multiple sources told The Ring. The deal, which will be announced Tuesday, will kick off in December; the agreement calls for 10 championship-level fights on Fox, with at least another 12 shows on FS1. That’s to be added to Showtime’s existing budget, also estimated at over $60 million. Meanwhile, Eddie Hearn, who runs U.K.-based promotional company Matchroom and recently announced a wide-sweeping deal with online streaming service DAZN, is estimated to have an annual budget of $125 million.

    I think it could be similar to the Smith fight with Brook out boxing Munguia early on but not having the power to seriously hurt him which leads to Munguia coming on strong later. Might be a stoppage cause after the two tko losses im not sure Brook is as durable as Liam Smith at this point.

    Even Jesse Vargas may give him a run for his money. I expected a little more from him when he fought Crawford. You and @mexfighter called it.

    that makes sense. if they regularly allowed normal boxers to participate i'm sure people would be lining up to get a chance to KO a cop. Especially in these times jaja

    By Arvin Nundloll at ringside Jose “Bolivita” Uzcategui (27-2, 23 KOs) claimed the IBF’s interim 168-pound world title with a one-sided beating over Andre Dirrell (26-3, 16 KOs) on Saturday night at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY. Dirrell didn’t come out for round nine. After a brief delay filled with confusion, Dirrell and Uzcategui brawled it out in a rematch for the interim IBF Super Middleweight Championship belt in a scheduled 12 round bout. Dirrell the sharper puncher but he couldn’t contain Uzcategui’s aggression and found himself eating some heavy handed shots that led to his corner stopping the fight at the beginning of round 9. Dirrell started off defensive, using his jab to keep Uzcategui away while he took his time to figure out the optimal distance and feel Uzcategui’s power. As the rounds progressed Uzcategui began stalking down Dirrell, throwing hooks to the body where possible but still eating counter jabs back from Dirrell. Right at the sound of the bell indicating the 3rd round ended, Uzcategui landed a flush right to the body that forced Dirrell to take a knee but did not count as a knockdown. The 4th round saw Uzcategui come out with a point to prove as he dominated the round by neutralizing Dirrell’s reach with the jab by staying in the pocket. Round 8 was a rock-em sock-em round with both fighters tearing each other apart with vicious hooks to the body and uppercuts that sent shudders throughout the arena. In a twist of events, Dirrell’s corner stopped the fight at the beginning of 9 due to an injury with his right arm. Official time of the stoppage was 0:02 of Round 9. Uzcategui picks up the interim belt and moves to 27-2, 23 KO’s while Dirrell falls to 26-3, 16 KO’s.

    Respect to Ortiz. He fought great & damned near got the stoppage. The referee had to intervene & give Wilder extra time to recover cause Ortiz had him hurt so bad. Good fight overall.

    Just not fair IMO, also note the ref's facial expression, that has to be the world's most reluctant hand raise by a ref.
