By Matchroom Boxing December 5th, 2014 All Boxing News

Maxi Hughes says he can rip up the script against Martin J. Ward and land a shot at the British Super Featherweight title when the pair meet in an eliminator clash on Saturday night at York Hall, Bethnal Green, live on Sky Sports.

The Rossington man faces the Essex talent as the underdog in east London, but with just one loss on his record – a ten-round points tussle with Scotty Cardle in April 2013 – and over 30 rounds more than Ward in the paid ranks, the 24 year old is convinced he has the tools to defeat the former Team GB man.

World Weekend Boxing Roundup: Crawford, Gradovich, Braekhus

By Wellington Amadulu December 1st, 2014 All Boxing Results

On Saturday night, the big focus was on the CenturyLink Center in America's Omaha, Nebraska where over 11,000 fans witnessed the lightweight swan song of WBO champion Terence Crawford.

Crawford, 25-0 (17), put on a clinic as the fast-handed local man handled the pressure of Mexican left-hook artist Raymundo Beltran, 29-7-1 (17), with great skill.

Behind superb footwork and southpaw and orthodox stances, Crawford punished Beltran with an ever-present jab that kept the challenger at bay and disrupted any offensive plan the former Manny Pacquiao sparring partner hoped to employ.

Beltran's successful sequences were few and far between as Crawford was just too fast and focused. By the later rounds, Beltran's face showed signs of the punishment handed out by the champion.

Crawford won a well-deserved 120-108, 119-109, 119-109 decision and will now reportedly move up to the light welterweight division and contend for the vacant WBO belt, possibly against number one contender Lucas Matthysse.

On the undercard, IBF featherweight king Evgeny Gradovich, 19-0-1 (9), tangled with challenger Jayson Velez, 22-0-1 (16), in a competitive 12 round clash. More...


Deja Vu? Can Eubank Jr Bring Back Father’s Magic Tonight?

By Nick Chamberlain November 29th, 2014 All Boxing Previews

You cannot make statements like “he is the best in the world right now, he could beat Gennady Golovkin” without some sort of comeuppance or retribution coming your way.

And it would have been so much better had Chris Eubank Jr and Sr not looked so sheepish when it did end up staring them in the face, be careful what you wish for, comes to mind.

Of course I am talking about Billy Joe Saunders fighting Chris Eubank Jr tonight in a domestic dust up that hopefully lives up to the excitement, which, let’s be honest, last week’s Tony Bellew vs. Nathan Cleverly rematch did not.

Let’s get this straight, I think Chris Eubank Jr, and to a lesser extent Sr, are great for boxing; you love to hate them. Eubank Sr was a master at it when he was boxing and he has trained his son to be that arrogant for the media; he must have done.

They are a strange pair, Sr taking the role of manager/trainer and leaving all the flashy boxing to Jr. and for as long Jr will say he does not want to be like his dad in the ring, the stalking, the posing, the vacant, pompous stares, he sure acts a lot like him.

I honestly would not be surprised if he entered the ring against Billy Joe Saunders to Tina Turner’s "Simply The Best".
When coming through the ranks, Sr had lined up a load of victims for Jr to look good against, and the bravado and talk after has been comical to say the least; claiming to be the best in the world after knocking out someone you have never heard of.
Jr does, however, have talent, you see it in flashes but that cannot really be judged until it is put to the test, Billy Joe Saunders will do exactly that…and some, and if he doesn’t, then at least we know what we are dealing with and that we could have a legitimate world title contender.

In Saunders, you have a well-schooled southpaw with a good amateur background who is slick in movement both defensively and offensively, he may not be not a concussive puncher but he has a 55% KO ratio and is currently the British, Commonwealth and European champion.

Saunders has had 20 fights whereas Eubank has had 18, but it’s the quality of the opposition that’s different. Saunders had his fair share of fodder at the beginning of his career but has also beaten good operators that have tested him like Nick Blackwell, Bradley Pryce, Matthew Hall and John Ryder. More...
