Lee Purdy and has vowed to show he has become a different fighter since losing to Devon Alexander, when he challenges Italian Leonard Bundu for the European Welterweight Title at the ExCeL, London on Saturday night, live on Sky Sports.
The Colchester man has described Saturday’s fight as a ‘must win’ and says that if he does take Bundu’s belt he wants to put himself in a position where champions will have no choice but to fight him.
“Every fighter says it - but I really am in the best shape of my life,” he said. “If there was an opponent that I could choose stylistically, then Bundo would be it. It’s going to be a cracking fight for me and the fans and I’m just really looking forward to fighting now, putting on a big show and finishing off the year with a bang. More...

Big-hitting Marcos Maidana is determined to knock out the brash-talking Adrien Broner when the pair meet in the ring this weekend, live on BoxNation.
The Argentine assassin, who is famed for his ferocious knockout power, having put 31 of his 37 opponents to sleep, is extremely confident he can add the name of Broner to that list on Saturday night.
Despite being regarded as the heir apparent to Floyd Mayweather’s throne, Maidana is in no doubt that Broner is a false pretender to that title and has been keen to show him why, ever since both men locked horns during the Shawn Porter and Julio Diaz card in September. More...

On the 1st of February, Gennady Golovkin, (28-0 with 25 KO’s), will be taking on Osumanu Adama (22-0 with 16 KO’s) in Monte Carlo, Monaco.
Not to discredit the fighter Adama, but “GGG,” as Golovkin is know, should have secured a premium opponent in a bout held at Las Vegas.
Instead, the fighter originating from Kazakhstan but who resides in Germany is getting an obscure opponent in a fight being held away from the mass media market that is America. So what went wrong?
Let’s take a look at the factors that lead to what I call "The Golovkin Snub".
According to Abel Sanchez, Golovkin’s trainer, his fighter is driven by the pursuit of excellence. In his last 15 fights, Golovkin scored 15 consecutive knockouts. He has an impressive 89% knockout rate that is well documented thanks to statistics released by compubox.
Ever since he started his professional career as a fighter in 2006, Golovkin has earned a reputation as a brawler who is technically sound and has that hard punch that can floor a fighter at any time.
Because of his reputation, there are not too many fighter that are willing to exchange blow for blow with the reigning WBA world middleweight champion, says Sanchez.
That reputation is part of the problem here. There is a lack of substantial fighters who actually want to step into the ring with “GGG” and risk getting knocked out.
In a recent interview in the Assosiated Press, Golovkin said of Sergio Martinez: “he is a very good boxer. Right now, he deserves to be called the middleweight champion of the world. I think I am better, but I do not know that for sure. I would like to fight him to find out.” More...

At the Echo Arena, Liverpool, England, Saturday night, Frank Warren Promotions hosted a great night of boxing which featured four Title Bouts.
Derry Mathews of Liverpool was unsuccessful in his bid to win the WBO European Lightweight Title. Stephen ‘The Rock’ Ormond of Dublin, Ireland, successfully defended the Title for a second time by Unanimous Points Decision (98-93; 98-93; 98-92).
Afterwards he told ringside media that he had hurt his hand early in the fight but still felt he’d won the first seven rounds. He is now looking for a rematch.
Paul Butler, of Ellesmere Port, put on an impressive performance to win the vacant WBA Inter-Continental Super-Flyweight Title by Unanimous Points (120-108; 129-109; 118-110) over Ruben Montoya of Mexico.
Butler kept up the work-rate throughout the contest and looked to be ‘enjoying himself’ particularly in rounds five, six and seven.
Liam ‘Beefy’ Smith of Liverpool, successfully defended his BBBofC British Light-Middleweight Title by stopping Mark Thompson of Heywood in the fourth round. Smith dominated the fight – dropping Thompson twice in round three before forcing the stoppage in round four.
Joe Selkirk of Liverpool won the vacant WBO European Light-Middleweight Title by stopping Zoltan Sera of Budapest in round three. It was a tough three rounds for Sera who sustained a cut to the right eye in the opener, then a body shot saw the Hungarian drop to the canvas and although he was up in time for the count – Referee Steve Gray stopped the contest.
And, Enzo Maccarinelli of Swansea, Wales, stopped Courtney Fry of Liverpool in the seventh round of their ten round Light-Heavyweight Contest. This should have been Maccarinelli’s first defence of his Commonwealth (British Empire) Light-Heavyweight Title, but it was reduced to a ten-round contest when Fry failed to make the weight.
Fry was on the canvas in rounds one and six and was literally ‘saved by the bell’ at the end of the sixth round. Under pressure in the seventh round - the Liverpool man was pulled out by his corner. More...

In Atlantic City, last night, on the undercard of Guillermo Rigondeaux's WBA/WBO Super Bantam title defense against Jospeh Agbeko, Matthew Macklin of Birmingham, England, scored a Unanimous Points victory (96-94; 97-93; 98-92) over Lamar Russ of Wilmington, North Carolina, in a ten round Middleweight Contest.
Macklin was originally scheduled to fight American - Willie Nelson, but Nelson was forced to withdraw less than four weeks ago with an elbow injury. Replacement – Russ, suffers his first defeat in fifteen contests - now 14 wins (7 by KO) 1 loss.
Macklin was stopped in the third by Middleweight titleholder Gennady Golovkin in June earlier this year and last night was his first fight since the loss, under the tutelage of his former rival - Jamie Moore.
