At King Georges Hall, Blackburn, last night, Steve Wood (VIP Promotions) hosted a fightnight headlined by an eight round Super-Middleweight contest between Luke Blackledge of Accrington and Konstantin Alexandrov of Bulgaria.

Blackledge was to have faced Jahmaine Smyle for the vacant English Super-Middleweight Title but when this was withdrawn Alexandrov stepped in with just 2 days’ notice.

Blackledge was the busier man in this eight rounder and kept up the pace throughout, targeting the Bulgarians mid-torso and gets the points victory 80-72

Also on the seven-fight bill, popular Shayne Singleton of Colne extended his winning record to 20 wins (6 by KO) by outpointing a ‘gain’ Adam Jones of Denaby Main over six rounds in the Welterweight division (60-54)

But perhaps the best scrap of the night was the six round Welterweight contest between local man Ali Shah and Preston’s Mick Hall, with Hall nicking the points victory (58-57) over an awkward Shah. More...


Will Pacquiao Expose The Cinderella Story Of Chris Algieri Tonight?

By Gonzo Glenn Gasket November 22nd, 2014 All Boxing Previews

Manny Pacquiao Chris Algieri Will Pacquiao Expose The Cinderella Story Of Chris Algieri Tonight?

It's back to Macau, China for WBO welterweight kingpin Manny Pacquiao as Boxing's most accomplished weight jumper returns to the Cotai Arena this evening for a clash with WBO light welter boss Chris Algieri.

Is 35 year old Pacquiao, 56-5-2 (38), the same fighter who blitzed through elite competition to win world titles in six weight classes from 1998 to 2011 or is he just a short, aging southpaw who was exposed as such by Juan Manuel Marquez via knockout in 2012?

Chris Algieri will be the litmus test that determines where Pacquiao really stands after a 20 year, 63 fight pro career.

Algieri, 20-0 (8), seems to have sprung from nowhere to upset WBO 140 pound champ Ruslan Provodnikov in June but the 30 year old had, in reality, been quietly grafting away in the New York City area sine 2008.

Despite the surprise Provodnikov victory, Algieri's resume is very thin, with hsi only scalp of note that of Emmanuel Taylor in February.

Algieri was likely selected by Team Pacquiao for that very same lack of experience as the Filipino looks to keep busy with a minimum of risk as he holds out hope for the long awaited showdown with Floyd Mayweather Jr. More...

Big Action On Massive Liverpool Fight Card Tonight

By Ricky Jones November 22nd, 2014 All Boxing Previews

In the biggest fight card this year to take place on British soil, the 12,000 seat Echo Arena in Liverpool tonight hosts two world title contests and several major divisional pairings capped off by the bad blood rematch between cruiserweights Nathan Cleverly and Tony Bellew.

Cleverly, 28-1 (14),and Bellew, 22-2-1 (14), tangled initially at light heavy in 2011 when Cleverly retained his WBO belt in this very same arena but now both men are campaigning in the cruiser class.

Both had flamed out at light heavy in 2013 against the biggest punchers in the division as Cleverly was halted by Sergey Kovalev and Bellew by Adonis Stevenson and both have won two bouts this year in the higher weight division.

Bellew has faced the better competition this year, stopping respected Russian Valery Brudov in March, and seems to have the momentum going into tonight's rematch.

But Cleverly will have the confidence of winning the first bout, and that could be the deciding factor in what is sure to be a gruelling contest of attrition for as long as it lasts.

Both fighters showed in their losses at light heavyweight that they can't adjust when they lose control of a fight so expect a toe-to-toe slugfest from beginning to end without much deviation. More...


Promoter Joey Eye Interview: Keep on Punching

Joey Eye Promoter Joey Eye Interview: Keep on Punching

In an exclusive interview with Saddoboxing ringside at Harrah’s Philadelphia Casino, on Friday evening, November 14, 2014, Pennsylvania boxing promoter Joey Intrieri AKA ‘Joey Eye’ as he is professionally known, discussed his rise to prominence as a Philadelphia Pennsylvania boxing promoter, and the status of the Philadelphia area boxing scene today.

Pennsylvania boxing promoter Joey Eye is best known for his role as one of the top cut men in the corner, working with professional boxers in the Northeastern United States. He also ambitiously promotes his own local boxing shows in ‘The Room’ at Harrah’s Philadelphia, located in Chester, Pennsylvania (a Philadelphia suburb), showcasing local prospects on the way up in co-promotion with XFE and other Pennsylvania sports promoters.

Saddoboxing: “Joey, you are well-known in your role as a boxing cutman. How did you you come interested in boxing? Where did it all start?”

Joey Eye: “When I was ten years old, I got to appear in the Rocky II movie. I was one of the kids in the Rocky movie. From that point, I got involved in Pennsylvania mateur boxing, and then professional boxing, as a promoter, cutman and gym owner.” More...


Lucien Bute: Training Injury Or Broken Fighter?

By Jose Espinoza November 21st, 2014 All Boxing Articles

Canadian fighter Lucien Bute has announced on November 18th, 2014, that he would opt out from a scheduled fight on December 6 in Montreal.

For almost two months now, Bute has been training in the Philippines because his new trainer, Freddie Roach, was on assignment there training Manny Pacquiao. Now comes the news that after suffering a back injury during a training session, Bute will no longer fight light heavyweight Roberto Bolonti on December 6 in Montreal.

Some analysts in the boxing world are speculating that it's not Bute's back that is broken but rather the fighter himself. Back in May 26, 2012, Bute fought Carl Froch in the United Kingdom and ever since that devastating defeat, the fighter from Canada has not been able to put his career back on track.

Since his encounter with Froch, Bute has only been able to win one bout against a stepping stone fighter, Denis Grachev. Earlier this year he lost an important bout to rival Jean Pascal, which exposed Bute's inability to handle a power puncher.

In an ironic turn of event, Interbox promoter Jean Bedard announced that while Bute vs. Bolonti is off, the December 6 gala will go on with Jean Pascal headlining the main event against light heavyweight Donovan George.

How the tide has turned for such a promising fighter. If Bute does recover and is able to fight sometime in 2015, will it be against a competitive opponent or will it be more of a showcase for a once great fighter on his way out?
