Flanagan Gets Fana WBO Title Defense On Fury vs. Klitschko Bill

By Hennessy Sports June 17th, 2016 All Boxing News

WBO lightweight champion Terry 'Turbo' Flanagan defends his belt against South African Mzonke Fana on July 9 at the Manchester Arena, but is aware that bragging rights in his hometown are still well and truly up for grabs.

Flanagan and WBA lightweight titleholder Anthony 'Million Dolla' Crolla share ownership of a weight-class and a city but have yet to meet in the ring, much to Flanagan's frustration.

“They don't want the fight,” he says. “It's as simple as that. It's an easy fight to make. Frank [Warren, promoter] isn't making it hard for them. He's not being difficult. If anything, he's bending over backwards to make it happen. He's giving into their demands. He has put the ball in their court and said they can have it on Sky Sports. But still they don't want it.

Tom Doran Intent On Testing Chris Eubank Jr’s Chin

By Matchroom Boxing June 15th, 2016 All Boxing News

Tom Doran believes he will be the first man to test Chris Eubank Jr’s chin when he challenges Eubank for the British Middleweight title at The O2 in London on June 25, live on Sky Sports Box Office.

Doran’s power was on display in his last outing in April when the unbeaten Welshman climbed off the canvas in the opening round to floor Irishman Luke Keeler before the end of the first and flatten him in the second.

That explosive win over the talented Dubliner made it four KO wins on the trot for the 28 year old, and Doran says he has the power to cause Eubank Jr real problems as he defends the Lord Lonsdale belt for the first time. More...

Northwest Boxing Fixture Stan Naccarato Passes Away At 88

By Boxing Press May 30th, 2016 All Boxing News

To say Stan Naccarato was instrumental to the success of the Battle at the Boat boxing series would be an understatement.

A former multiple-time chairman of the state boxing commission and two-time President of the Tacoma Athletic Commission, Naccarato was at the forefront during the series’ infancy.

“Stan was there from the start doing a lot of the heavy lifting as we were looking to get things rolling,” said Brian Halquist, president of Halquist Productions, the organization which runs Battle at the Boat. “He sold tickets. He was our ring announcer. He was invaluable, just a jack of all trades.” More...

Hennessy: “Eubank Jr’s British Belt Isn’t His To Give Away.”

By Hennessy Sports May 27th, 2016 All Boxing News

British middleweight champion Chris Eubank Jr has offered to return his Lonsdale belt to its former owner, Nick Blackwell, despite not owning the belt outright.

The gesture was made this morning on ITV1's Good Morning Britain, but Blackwell's friend and former promoter, Mick Hennessy, aware that Eubank Jr needs three successful defences of the title before he can call it his own, is of the opinion that it's not much more than a publicity stunt at this stage.

"On the face of it, it seems like a really kind gesture from Chris," said Hennessy, "but, unfortunately, he has no right to make those sort of claims. The belt he currently has isn't his to give away. More...

By Matchroom Boxing May 24th, 2016 All Boxing News

Eubank Jr makes the first defence of the Lord Lonsdale belt he won against Nick Blackwell in March, taking on the hard-hitting Welsh danger man Doran on the undercard of Anthony Joshua’s first defence of his IBF Heavyweight title.

Brighton star Eubank has stopped his last four opponents on his way to landing the British crown, and the 26 year old is determined to win the prestigious title outright before moving onto World honours – with father and son making it clear that the fearsome Gennady Golovkin is their number one target down the line.
