By Boxing Press November 26th, 2014 All Boxing News

A fractured thumb that forced the cancellation of his scheduled September 29 fight with veteran Johnathan Banks (29-2-1, 19 KOs) may prove to have had a silver lining for former world light heavyweight champion and 1996 U.S. Olympian Antonio "Magic Man" Tarver (30-6, 21 KOs).

The determined and still dangerous southpaw, who turned 46 this past Friday, squares-off Dec. 11 against Banks in a 10-round heavyweight fight, on a Goossen Promotions card, airing live on ESPN2 and ESPN Deportes from Pechanga Resort Casino in Temecula, California. More...

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Blackledge was to have faced Jahmaine Smyle for the vacant English Super-Middleweight Title but when this was withdrawn Alexandrov stepped in with just 2 days’ notice.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


World Weekend Boxing Roundup: Pacquiao, Gonzalez, Muira, Bellew

By Wellington Amadulu November 24th, 2014 All Boxing Results

It was another installment of the Manny Pacquiao show on Sunday as the Filipino legend lit up Cotai Arena in Macau, China with a dominating WBO welterweight title defense.

Upstart American Chris Algieri, 20-1 (8), came into his challenge of Pacquiao, 57-5-2 (38), after unseating WBO light welter boss Ruslan Provodnikov in June but the lanky New Yorker saw his luck run out.

Algieri spent the entire contest backpedalling from the aggressive champion, producing several slips on the canvas that were ruled knockdowns but there was no mistaking the last three floorings as Pacquiao found range with big punches to produce an exceptionally wide points victory.

On the undercard, Jessie Vargas, 26-0 (9), retained his WBA light welter belt with a hard fought points verdict over former WBC lightweight boss Antonio DeMarco, 31-4-1 (23).

Vargas displayed grit and skill to keep the oncoming DeMarco at bay and should be able to keep the title for quite some time.

Also in Macau, WBO featherweight champ Vasyl Lomachenko, 3-1 (1), put on a masterful display in outboxing challenger Chonlatarn Piriyapinyo, 52-2 (33). More...

By Matchroom Boxing November 24th, 2014 All Boxing News

Tony Bellew gained sweet revenge over Nathan Cleverly with a split decision win at the Echo Arena in Liverpool, live on Sky Sports Box Office on Saturday night.

The bitter rivals looked neck and neck over the first eight rounds, but Bellew crucially found the extra gears and pinned Cleverly against the ropes in the final rounds, and although the Welshman was able to withstand the onslaught bravely, Bellew took over the fight and appeared to have done enough to win the fight.

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...

By Hatton Promotions November 22nd, 2014 All Boxing News

The former three-time world champion scored a split decision victory over Rabchenko at a packed Hisense Arena last Wednesday and is now targeting showdowns with the likes of Floyd Mayweather Jnr and Saul "Canelo" Alvarez. More...

Algieri Prasies Pacquiao But Vows To Come Home Victorious

By BoxNation November 22nd, 2014 All Press Releases

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...
