World Weekend Boxing Roundup: Abraham, Drozd Win

By Wellington Amadulu September 28th, 2014 All Boxing Results

There were a handful of interesting contests that occurred over the weekend so let's get started with the biggest name that saw action, Arthur Abraham.

The WBO super middle weight king was surprised by a strong second half rally from two-time British titlist Paul Smith at Sparkassen Arena in Kiel, Germany on Saturday.

Former IBF middleweight champ Abraham, 41-4 (28), making the second defense of his crown, started slow behind a trademark high guard but by the middle rounds had cut the distance Smith sought to maintain and was working well on the inside.

But by the seventh round, Smith, 35-4 (20), engaging in his first world title contest, threw caution to the wind and scored well with snappy combinations punctuated by body shots that sapped the champion's energy.

By the championship rounds, Smith was in control until Abraham got his second wind in the eleventh before the pair went at it heartily in the final frame.

After a very close contest, the wide score cards of 117-111, 117-111 and 119-109 all in favor of Abraham drew wide criticism. More...

Can Smith Pull Off Massive Upset Of WBO Champ Abraham?

By Nick Chamberlain September 27th, 2014 All Boxing Previews

Liverpool’s Paul Smith gets his long awaited world title shot this weekend when he faces ‘King’ Arthur Abraham in Germany for the WBO Super middleweight strap.

Abraham picked up the belt off of three close fights with Robert Stieglitz, the last of which was back in March.

Besides Stieglitz, the only other fighter with serious credentials to come up against Abraham was Andre Ward, who he lost against in 2011.

Comparatively, Paul Smith has not seen any real talent in a while either…2011 funnily enough, against George Groves, who stopped him in two rounds.

Abraham was at one point in his career a feared middleweight who couldn’t be stopped and was knocking everyone out.

For a one dimensional fighter - who has a very straight forward game-plan of cover up behind guard, wait until other fighter stops punching, commence punching, rinse and repeat - it isn't bad going.

Jokes aside, Abraham can punch, his barrage of shots did fold many a fighter, but at the top level it just took a good strategy to take him over the distance and Carl Froch did exactly that in November 2010 as part of the Super Six tournament.
Incidentally the Super Six tournament was for Super Middleweights; Abraham was always strongest at Middleweight.

Before Froch, Andre Dirrell gave it a good go against Abraham, although it ended in a DQ when Abraham hit Dirrell as he slipped over and was down, Dirrell could have carried on…he saw an out and he took it. More...

Mexican Star Canelo Alvarez Leaves Showtime To Return To HBO

By Jose Espinoza September 27th, 2014 All Boxing Articles

Saul "Canelo" Alvarez announced this Tuesday that he is leaving Showtime and signed a long-term deal to return to HBO.

The details of the newly signed contract between the Golden Boy fighter and HBO sports broadcasting were not announced but Canelo made it clear that this was a long-term deal with an option for fights on the big Mexican holiday weekends, which are in May and in September.

Those dates at Showtime are reserved for Floyd Mayweather Jr., who has a monopoly on those specific dates due to his mega contract with Showtime pay-per-view.

According to Canelo, the main reason why he chose to leave Showtime was to give his Mexican fans an opportunity to see him fight on those specific days.

When asked about any conflicts with Showtime, the Mexican fighter said his goal was to fight on those dates regardless of whether or not Mayweather Jr. would be putting on a pay-per-view extravaganza at the same time.

Ken Hershman, president of HBO Sports, said that everyone at HBO is happy to have Canelo back. "We are delighted to partner with Oscar De La Hoya and Golden Boy Promotions in presenting Canelo's fight and events on our various platforms," commented Hershman on reuniting with Golden boy Promotions.

The first fight broadcast on HBO for Canelo will be on December 6 when he will face Joshua Clottey, who currently holds the WBA international light middleweight title. To be fair, a fight between Canelo and Clottey would be considered by many as a tune-up fight until HBO can showcase Canelo against Miguel Cotto.

This is an encouraging sign for HBO Sports but let's hope that this will bring forward an era of quality as opposed to quantity which is why HBO lost out fighter's in the first place.
