Derek Chisora-Tyson Fury: Rivals promise ‘best first round in heavyweight game’ for Dec. 3 fight

Derek Chisora stated he and Tyson Fury agreed to deliver “the best first round in the heavyweight game ever” as he looks to cause an upset versus the WBC heavyweight world champion on Saturday. The two Britons face off at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium with the “Gypsy King” expected to complete a winning trilogy over a 38-year-old underdog opponent he comfortably defeated in 2011 and 2014. Chisora, unfazed by the pre-fight hype and his underdog status, said he will be “going to war” with Fury. “I don’t care what is said. For me to give up, just because a newspaper […]

Devin Haney again defeats George Kambosos by unanimous decision

Devin Haney picked up in the rematch where he had left off, with another unanimous-decision triumph over George Kambosos to retain the undisputed lightweight championship on Sunday afternoon at Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne, Australia. Haney, who also routed Kambosos in June in Australia, won via scores of 118-110, 119-109 and 118-110. “I knew he was looking for the jab, so I wanted to show other tools in the arsenal,” said Haney, who owns all four 135-pound titles. “The right hand won me the fight tonight.” Haney’s jab, one of boxing’s best, was a major key to his victory, but […]

Trilogy fight between Roman ‘Chocolatito’ Gonzalez and Juan Francisco Estrada called off due to COVID

Roman “Chocolatito” Gonzalez won’t face Juan Francisco Estrada in a hotly anticipated trilogy fight after all. Estrada withdrew from the fight after he became symptomatic with COVID, sources tell ESPN. In his place, 112-pound champion Julio Cesar Martinez has agreed to a deal for a 115-pound fight with Gonzalez on March 5 in San Diego, sources said. Martinez (18-1, 14 KOs) is an explosive puncher who is trained by Eddy Reynoso at Canelo Alvarez’s San Diego gym. The 26-year-old Mexican has competed at 115 pounds numerous times earlier in his career, most recently in March 2019. One of the sport’s […]

Teofimo Lopez-George Kambosos lightweight title bout finalized for Oct. 4 in NYC

Teofimo Lopez and George Kambosos have signed contracts for an undisputed lightweight title bout that will take place Oct. 4 at New York’s Hulu Theater at MSG, Triller COO Thorsten Meier told ESPN. The fight was set for Oct. 5 but Triller moved the fight to avoid competing with a potential wild-card playoff game between the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox in New York. If the MLB season ended today, that match would take place Oct. 5. “We want to make sure the sporting fans can see both amazing events,” Meier said.

Mike Tyson, 54, vows to fight again after bout against Roy Jones Jr., 51, ruled a draw

Mike Tyson shared a hug with Roy Jones Jr. once the final bell sounded. Making his much-anticipated boxing reappearance, the former heavyweight champion’s exhibition fight versus fellow legend Jones on Saturday night was unofficially ruled a draw. After the eight-round fight at Staples Center in Los Angeles, Tyson, who last fought in 2005, said he would “absolutely” do another exhibition. “I could’ve done everything better,” Tyson said. “Everything I was doing I could’ve done it better, so God willing, I’ll be better the next exhibition.” Both fighters showed flashes of their former glory, but ultimately Tyson overwhelmed Jones with his […]

Middleweight champ Gennadiy Golovkin to fight Kamil Szeremeta on Dec. 18

It’s been a long wait, but Gennadiy “GGG” Golovkin ultimately is set for his mandatory IBF middleweight title defense versus Kamil Szeremeta. The two will meet on Friday, Dec. 18 on a card that will be streamed live on DAZN, the streaming service confirmed on Tuesday. Golovkin has not fought since October 2019 when he won a very competitive unanimous decision over Sergiy Derevyanchenko to collect the vacant IBF and IBO middleweight titles. Those titles moved Golovkin back to world champion status after he lost the WBA, WBC and IBO titles in his September rematch with Canelo Alvarez. A combination […]

Daniel Jacobs wins as Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. quits after 5th

The bizarre spiral of former middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr.’s career continued last Saturday in Phoenix, Arizona. The culmination of what was a whirlwind promotion in which Chavez skipped out on a drug test (forcing the fight to switch states) and miss weight by nearly five pounds ended when Chavez quit on his stool after Round 5 versus Daniel Jacobs and ran out of the ring while being pelted by garbage.  The exact reason for Chavez quitting was never properly resolved as he ditched out on the post-fight interview amid a showering of boos from the Talking Stick Resort […]
