World Boxing Weekend Roundup: Joshua, Thurman Win

By Wellington Amadulu June 27th, 2016 All Boxing Results

Capping off a massive fight card at London's O2 Arena on Saturday evening, heavyweight Anthony Joshua won his battle of the giants with Dominic Breazeale, retaining the IBF title for the first time.

From the start, Joshua reinforced his credentials as an undefeated world champion, using a blistering jab to attack and control Breazeale, who had no answers for the quickness of his adversary.

Breazeale was kept off balance by Joshua's efforts, which also included straight rights and left hooks, and had his own offense nullified by Joshua's adept footwork as the champion simply moved out of harm's way.

As the rounds wore on, Breazeale's swollen face became a roadmap of the punishment he was absorbing but the American challenger showed remarkable courage and toughness, never once backing off in his attempt to defeat Joshua.

This approach paid off on a few occasions where Breazeale was able to connect good punches but Joshua was never hurt and patiently kept up his own strategy.

By the middle rounds, Breazeale had taken many flush shots that no one else Joshua had fought, aside from Dilian Whyte, had been able to handle but like Whyte, the challenger finally crumpled to the floor in the seventh.

Breazeale managed to beat the count but was returned to the canvas and the bout called off with a minute remaining in the round.

Joshua keep his perfect record intact and now stands at 17-0 (17) while Breazeale, 17-1 (15), goes out on his shield, suffering his first loss. More...

Anthony Joshua, Keith Thurman Put World Titles At Risk Tonight

By Danny Wilson June 25th, 2016 All Boxing Previews

Tonight's world title clashes start off with a towering heavyweight battle in England as IBF king Anthony Joshua meets the challenge of Dominic Breazeale at the O2 Arena in London.

At 6'6, Joshua will amazingly be looking up at the 6'7 tall Breazeale in this, British phenom Joshua's first defense since ripping the IBF crown off the head of Charles Martin in April.

Joshua, 16-0 (16), has stopped every opponent he's faced thus far but America's Breazeale, 17-0 (15), has vowed to put an end to the Englishman's run of what the challenger has termed "easy" fights.

Is Breazeale capable of backing up such an ambitious claim? The 30 year old Californian has bested respectable competition over in the states but will have to prove that he has a world class chin as the 26 year old Joshua has proved that he can punch with definite authority.

Flipping the coin to the other side, Brezaeale has a pretty impressive KO record as well and has also gone 10 rounds on one occasion and eight on another while Joshua has never been past seven.

But stamina will probably not be an issue as it's likely this fight will be finished inside the distance, with the man who can take the bigger punch will be the victor.

The undercard in London features a few excellent matchups with a super middle scrap for the WBA International belt between George Groves, 23-3 (18), and Martin Murray, 33-3-1 (16).

Both fighters have failed on multiple occasions to win world titles, with Groves coming up short against Carl Froch (twice) and Badou Jack while Murray losing to Arthur Abraham at super middle and middleweights Gennady Golvkin and Sergio Martinez, while drawing with Felix Sturm. More...

Top Welterweights Give Predictions For Thurman vs. Porter

By Boxing Press June 24th, 2016 All Press Releases

Their peers in the welterweight division - world champions, former champions, contenders and top prospects - can't pick a definitive winner between defending WBA 147-pound king Keith "One Time" Thurman (26-0, 22 KOs) and former world champion "Showtime" Shawn Porter (26-1-1, 16 KOs).
