Jack Catterall beats Josh Taylor by unanimous decision in rematch

Jack Catterall got the revenge he has craved for so long, defeating Josh Taylor by unanimous decision in their junior welterweight rematch in Leeds on Saturday night. After losing the first fight in controversial fashion in February 2022 in Scotland, Catterall came out on top, although the result again split opinions. The fight certainly lived up to expectations, and fans were treated to 12 rounds of nonstop action as a reward for the two-year wait between the original and the rematch. It was Catterall, though, who was rewarded on the scorecards, with two of the judges scoring it 117-111 and […]

Oleksandr Usyk edges Tyson Fury by split decision, now undisputed

There hadn’t been an undisputed heavyweight champion since Lennox Lewis defeated Evander Holyfield in a rematch of all-time greats in November 1999 in Las Vegas. Halfway around the world — and nearly 25 years later — another undisputed champion in boxing’s glamour division was crowned when Oleksandr Usyk floored Tyson Fury in Round 9 en route to a split decision triumph early Sunday at sold-out Kingdom Arena. The wait was well worth it as both men delivered a fight befitting the prize they were competing for. One judge scored it 114-113 for Fury but was overruled by scores of 114-113 […]

Tyson Fury ‘having fun’ as ‘fight of the century’ vs. Usyk nears

Tyson Fury danced and sang along to some of his favorite hits during a light workout Wednesday evening, three days out from his undisputed heavyweight championship clash with Oleksandr Usyk. England’s Fury, 35, wrapped his hands to the tune of AC/DC’s anthem “You Shook Me All Night Long.” He glided around the ring with trainer SugarHill Steward and pumped his right fist to the beat of The Killer’s “Mr. Brightside.” “I’m having fun. I always do, don’t I?” Fury (34-0-1, 24 KOs) told ESPN following his 15-minute workout at the open-air entertainment hub Boulevard City. “All these fight weeks I […]

Devin Haney requests NYSAC overturn loss to Ryan Garcia

Boxer Devin Haney, in a letter to the New York State Athletic Commission obtained by ESPN, formally requested Saturday that last month’s loss to Ryan Garcia be overturned to a disqualification victory after Garcia’s failed doping test. Garcia’s A-sample tested positive for the anabolic agent ostarine the day before and the night of his majority-decision win over Haney in Brooklyn. Garcia’s B-sample will be examined May 22. The tests were conducted by the Voluntary Anti-Doping Association (VADA). If Garcia (25-1, 20 KOs) is found culpable, the result could be changed to a no contest or, if Haney’s request is granted, a DQ loss for […]

Vasiliy Lomachenko stops George Kambosos Jr. by TKO in 11th round

Pound-for-pound megastar Vasiliy Lomachenko proved he still has plenty more left in the tank after battering former unified world champion George Kambosos Jr. for 11 rounds at a capacity RAC Arena to capture the IBF lightweight title. Just as he did in last year’s narrow and controversial loss to Devin Haney, 36-year-old Lomachenko (18-3, 12 KOs) showcased his unrivaled footwork and agility, demonstrated patience when required, and struck clinical combination attacks to not only leave Kambosos (21-3, 10 KOs) bloody and bruised but his international boxing career in tatters.

Ryan Garcia scores 3 knockdowns in wild upset of Devin Haney

Ryan Garcia’s fitness to fight was questioned in the lead-up to his fight with Devin Haney, a turbulent promotion that was highlighted by Garcia’s erratic comments. Garcia (25-1, 20 KOs) was a major underdog and virtually counted out entering Saturday evening. His blinding, powerful left hook turned the tide as Garcia scored three knockdowns to pull the upset via majority decision at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center. One judge scored the fight 112-112 but was overruled by scores of 114-110 and 115-109 for Garcia. However, Garcia wasn’t eligible to win Haney’s WBC junior welterweight title after he weighed 143.2 pounds Friday for the […]
