  1. The undefeated Cecilia Braekhus will defend her WBC, WBA, IBF, WBO and IBO World Welterweight titles against Mikaela Lauren this Saturday in Stokke, Norway. While promoting the fight, they faced off for the standard photo opportunity. Lauren ended the typical staredown by kissing Braekhus on the lips. After slapping her upcoming opponent and walking away, the champion laughed at the absurd occurrence with her team. Braekhus defeated Lauren by TKO when they last fought in 2010.
  2. Former boxing world champion Paulie Malignaggi has confirmed his promoter Al Haymon has had discussions with UFC President Dana White regarding a fight with Conor McGregor. Malignaggi, who acted as a sparring partner for McGregor in the build-up to his bout with Floyd Mayweather Jr. before leaving his camp, spoke to FightHype (warning: contains NSFW language):
  3. Mayweather gym volunteer arrested for murder of fellow helper in Las Vegas A man said to be working at Floyd Mayweather’s gym in Las Vegas has been arrested in relation to the murder of a fellow volunteer. Las Vegas police claim 54-year-old Abdul Musawwir Mohammed, also known as Carlton Burnett, killed Randall Smith. Smith– known by his friends as “Baldy” – was allegedly shot during a heated argument. Police say the fatal incident followed an argument at Mohammed’s Las Vegas apartment. The suspect is then thought to have attempted to conceal and dispose of the body. An arrest report says San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department deputies received a call concerning a man’s body on August 27. The body was discovered just over the California border with Nevada, partially decomposed and subject to several gun shots.
  4. Yeah he’s been mia for a bit, but he has about 3 months to prepare.
  5. Errol Spence broke through in 2017, but unfortunately, he only had one fight. He should be more active in 2018, though, since his first fight is coming in the year’s first month. Spence will make the first defense of his IBF welterweight title against Lamont Peterson in January at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y., a source who was not authorized to speak publicly told The bout will be televised by Showtime and will officially be announced on Saturday’s junior middleweight telecast. Spence (22-0, 19 knockouts) jumped on the road in his first title shot and stopped Kell Brook in the 11th round after breaking the Brit’s orbital bone. Brook represented the toughest opponent of Spence’s career, and now the Texan will meet another formidable foe. Peterson (35-3-1, 17 KOs) is a former junior welterweight champion and remains one of the best fighters at 147 pounds, but he’s been woefully inactive since 2015. The 33-year-old topped David Avanesyan in February, the D.C. native’s last outing. Before that, he was party to two controversial decisions in ’15, one that went his way, and one that didn’t (loss to Danny Garcia, victory over Felix Diaz). The fight will be Spence’s first primetime main event on Showtime, and at 27, the Olympian has a chance to really make 2018 his coming out party.
  6. Luis Ortiz Fails Drug Test

    Naaaa! Stiverne deserves a rematch
  7. Luis Ortiz Fails Drug Test

    DEONTAY WILDER TO FACE BERMANE STIVERNE IN REMATCH Deontay Wilder, for the third time in less than two years, has had a fight cancelled due to an opponent’s failed drug test. Luis Ortiz tested positive for the banned substances chlorothiazide and hydrochlorothiazide, diuretics commonly used in athletics as masking agents. Ortiz maintains that the banned substances found in his system through WBC-mandated VADA testing are the result of prescribed medication he was using to treat high blood pressure. However, Ortiz did not report to VADA that he had been on the prescription drug prior to undergoing testing for the Wilder bout. And on Wednesday, the WBC announced the fight wouldn’t go through. Instead, Wilder will fight Bermane Stiverne in a rematch on Nov. 4 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. Stiverne is the WBC’s mandatory challenger and accepted a six-figure step-aside fee to allow the Ortiz fight to happen in the first place. Stiverne is the only man to go the distance with Wilder, but he wasn’t remotely competitive during their January 2015 bout. Since then, Stiverne has fought only once, a decision victory over Derric Rossy in which he was dropped. Stiverne was set to face Dominic Breazeale on the undercard, but now he has the title fight and return encounter with Wilder he coveted. And some extra money, too.
  8. That my friend is the question, but one thing comes to mind Mayweather v McGregor George is thinking the freak show makes good money so why not
  9. Seagal don’t want none of Big George
  10. Luis Ortiz Fails Drug Test

    Ortiz never attempted to obtain a therapeutic use exemption (TUE), which is required under World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) guidelines, two sources said.
  11. Badou Jack vacates WBA title

    That would be worth tossing the WBA strap.
  12. Andre Ward announces retirement

    Good riddance But he'll be back they don't stay retired for long especially when they retire young
  13. BY FRANCISCO SALAZAR Sergey Kovalev is moving on with his career. And he will do so without the services of trainer John David Jackson. Will Kovalev have a trainer before his next fight, which is scheduled to take place in a little over two months time? According to Kovalev, do not hold your breath. Kovalev (30-2-1, 26 knockouts) will face light heavyweight contender Vyacheslav Shabranskyy on November 25 inside The Theater at Madison Square Garden in New York City. The 12-round bout will air live on HBO. The Shabranskyy bout will mark Kovalev’s return, since his eighth round stoppage loss to Andre Ward on June 17. After spending the summer visiting family and defending a master’s thesis in his native Russia, Kovalev has already begun training for the Shabranskyy fight. The notable omission from this training camp is Jackson, who had been in the corner of Kovalev since 2012. During that time, Kovalev won three world title belts and was considered the best light heavyweight in boxing. Then came the two fights with Ward, the second of which was punctuated by the stunning knockout loss. For Kovalev, the events on that day are spotty, at best. “I don’t remember anything from the middle of the second round on,” Kovalev told a group of boxing scribes Saturday afternoon in Las Vegas while waiting to watch the Canelo Alvarez-Gennady Golovkin fight that evening. “I woke up from the right hand by Andre Ward in the eighth round. I don’t know what was wrong with my body during the fight.”
  14. Boxing styles

    Nice break down, I think "Technical Boxer" needs to be added. And the term "Out boxer" I've actually never heard of before but understood, I usually refer to them minus the "Out" and just the "Boxer" Swarmer = Porter Slugger = Provodnikov Out-boxer = Mayweather Jr Boxer puncher = Mosley Counter puncher = Toney South paw = Hammed Switch hitter = Hagler
  15. Chocolatito came in the ring looking like he had just go some real bad news prior to the walkout. But Rungvisai is the real deal. What sayeth yee blokes
  16. Official GGG vs Canelo prediction thread

    But if 3G was to pull off a decision I'd be ok with it
  17. Official GGG vs Canelo prediction thread

    I'm actually picking the best man to win this bout. For the simply reason I cannot decide.
