Trainer Coldwell Excited by Tony Bellew’s World Title Progress

By Coldwell Boxing July 4th, 2015 All Boxing News

Liverpool’s Tony Bellew returned from a nine month absence last weekend to halt experienced Croatian, Ivica Bacurin, in the last session of a scheduled ten rounder. The Liverpool man dominated proceedings from the get go and, after dropping his resilient opponent multiple times, he finally got the job done seconds before the final bell.

Hopes within Camp Bellew are firmly attached to a third world title shot and trainer, Dave Coldwell, is insistent that the time is right for his hungry charge.

“We’re not far from where we want to be and I see things falling into place for Tony now,” buzzed Coldwell. “Last Friday was our fourth fight together and the things we’ve been working on for the last eighteen months are beginning to look the part. More...


Sam Eggington Calls For All-Out War Against Foot July 18

By Matchroom Boxing July 4th, 2015 All Boxing News

Sam Eggington has predicted his British and Commonwealth Welterweight clash with Glenn Foot will be an all-out war at the Manchester Arena on July 18, live on Sky Sports.

Eggington puts his Commonwealth strap on the line for the first time with the vacant British belt also up for grabs, and with the attacking styles of both fighters likely to gel – a classic is on the cards in Manchester.

The 21 year old Stourbridge smasher has stopped his last five opponents, picking up the scalp of Denton Vassell and landing the WBC International Silver title against Shayne Singleton and the Commonwealth belt against Joseph Lamptey in the process – along with a growing reputation for must-see fights.

By Boxing Press July 4th, 2015 All Boxing News

Ilkeston's 'Relentless' Russell Henshaw knows all about hard work, and is willing to pay his dues, both inside and outside the ring, in pursuit of cruiserweight titles.

The amiable 30-year-old balances a burgeoning boxing career with jobs as a bricklayer and tree surgeon and will next appear, in the ring, on July 25 at Derby Arena.

“Recently I've been working on the railways swinging a chainsaw about and chopping down trees,” he said. “I've been working in the heat all week wearing chainsaw trousers and thick, heavy clothing. It helps me lose weight, but, other than that, it's horrible. More...

By Matchroom Boxing July 4th, 2015 All Boxing News

Chris Jenkins is ready to put ‘the hardest period as a pro’ behind him and claim the vacant British Light Welterweight title at the Manchester Arena on July 18, live on Sky Sports.

Jenkins moved to 16-0 in October as he continued to build on the momentum from his Prizefighter triumph and then landing the WBC International strap, but a run of bad luck has kept him on the side lines – and the Welshman is ready to unleash months of frustration in his first British title fight.

British Prospect Woodall Off To Promising Career Start In America

By Boxing Press July 4th, 2015 All Press Releases

Unlike most British boxers who first establish themselves at home in the United Kingdom before fighting in the United States, middleweight Steed "The Stallion" Woodall packed up and moved over a year ago from Birmingham, England to Miami, Florida in order to pursue his boxing dream.

As an amateur, Woodall was a five-time England National Champion, two-time British Champion, and quarterfinalist in the World Youth Championships. His aggressive style has proven to be much better suited for pro boxing, evident by his impressive 7-0-1 (5 KOs) professional record. More...

For Docherty it could be deemed a case of back to the future, as back in 2007 he unsuccessfully challenged Lee McAllister for the Lightweight version of the WBU title.

Now eight years later Docherty will be hoping that it is a reversal in fortunes and on the 15th August it will be him, not his opponent that emerges victorious and crowned the WBU Super Welterweight Champion. More...

Middleweight challenger Damon Jones believes age will be no barrier when he steps up in class to face British champion Nick Blackwell on July 25 at Derby Arena, live on Channel 5.

The promising 22-year-old has looked faultless so far in his professional career – winning 13 bouts on the spin – but has yet to go past six rounds and has yet to meet a competitor quite like Blackwell. Not that it matters in Jones' mind, of course. More...

Timothy Bradley Beats Jessie Vargas In Welter Firefight

By Danny Wilson June 28th, 2015 All Boxing Results

WBA light welter titlist Jessie Vargas jumped up to welterweight last night at StubHub Center in Carson, CA but bit off more than he could chew as he was outfought by former two-weight world titlist Timothy Bradley in an exciting battle for the vacant Interim WBO crown.

Bradley started with a focused body attack in the first frame until Vargas caught his shorter rival with a good shot in the second round that shook "Desert Storm" but the Las Vegas man couldn't better his work as the more experienced Bradley gained time to recover.

After Bradley had worked out the timing of the punches of Vargas, he began to launch raiding tactics, nipping in to deliver salvos of shots before heading back on the outside.

But Bradley was throwing wild haymakers at times and the more disciplined Vargas punished him for that, landing crisp straight punches.

The middle rounds saw Bradley throwing and scoring more but Vargas continued to pick his spots and land well at times, he just was not busy enough due to having to deal with the continued forward motion of his antagonist.

By the later rounds, Vargas was tiring from the fast pace of the contest and his face began to swell from all the shots he'd taken but the younger man continued to score with single punches, although Bradley was clearly in control of the fight.

In the 12th and final round, Bradley was being cautious, staying away from Vargas and picking his spots but walked into a perfect right hand counter with just seconds remaining.

Bradley, hurt badly by the punch, stumbled and wobbled across the ring but was together enough to lay on the ropes and block the follow up attempts by Vargas before the pair clinched. More...
