Martin vs. Joshua, Pacquiao vs. Bradley Big Fights Tonight

By Ricky Jones April 9th, 2016 All Boxing Previews

There's two big fight cards on tap tonight, one in London and one in Las Vegas and we'll take a look first at the UK's premier boxing venue, the O2 Arena.

That's where three world title contests take place, anchored by a hotly anticipated clash at heavyweight between celebrated 2012 Olympic gold medallist Anthony Joshua and newly minted IBF champion Charles Martin.

Although Martin, 23-0-1 (21), won the NABO strap in 2014, the California resident leapt from relative obscurity in January to capture the vacant IBF crown when opponent Vyacheslav Glazkov injured a knee in the third round and could not continue to fight.

The 29 year old southpaw makes his maiden defense in hostile territory as he will be stepping into the arena where his challenger Joshua, 15-0 (15), has fought on five occasions, including his last three appearances.

It could be a significant factor that Martin has never fought professionally outside of the US but also, has never been in the kind of media spotlight that he has been dealing with in the lead-up to this contest.

In contrast, Joshua has been a major sports star in the UK since winning gold at the 2012 London Olympics and will have a fiercely partisan audience cheering him on.

Joshua has arguably also faced better competition than has Martin but neither man has ever squared off with a world class opponent and it's difficult to predict the outcome tonight in this one. More...

Pauly Upton Eyes Return To The Emerald Isle

By Hatton Promotions April 9th, 2016 All Press Releases

Pauly Upton plans to land the Irish title this month before taking it 'home' to defend on the Emerald Isle.

The 27-year-old super-welterweight, like his brothers Sonny and Anthony, is fiercely proud of his Irish heritage and spent much of his decorated amateur career across the water.

By Boxing Press April 9th, 2016 All Press Releases

By Matchroom Boxing April 6th, 2016 All Boxing News

David Brophy says he will punish George Groves if he looks past their fight at The O2 on Saturday night, live on Sky Sports Box Office.

The unbeaten Scotsman lands a golden chance to gatecrash the lucrative and talent-stacked Super-Middleweight scene with a meeting with the Londoner for the vacant WBA International title.

Groves is plotting an assault on a fourth World title shot having been edged out by WBC king Badou Jack in Las Vegas in September, but the unbeaten Caldercruix man believes he has the tools to capitalise on his shot if ‘Saint’ George is looking past him. More...

Middleweight Nick Blackwell Wakes From Induced Coma

By Hennessy Sports April 6th, 2016 All Boxing News

On Saturday, April 2, 2016, Nick 'Bang Bang' Blackwell woke from an induced coma. Twenty-four hours later, on Sunday, he was talking to family and close friends at his bedside.

Nick had been placed in an induced coma following a British middleweight title contest at The SSE Arena, Wembley on Saturday, March 26. Contrary to early reports, though, his bleed was outside the brain – on the skull, in fact – and was minor enough for there to be no need to operate.

He was in an induced coma for almost seven days, given the very best possible treatment by the incredible team at St. Mary's Hospital, and the sedatives used were gradually reduced over this period of time. More...


Rosas Out, Vargas In For WBA Champ Jamie McDonnell

By Matchroom Boxing April 6th, 2016 All Boxing News

Fernando Vargas has replaced Juan Alberto Rosas as the opponent for WBA Bantamweight king Jamie McDonnell at The O2 on Saturday night, live on Sky Sports Box Office.

Vargas lands a golden opportunity on the bill following a huge win for the 27 year old Mexican over former World champion Wilfredo Vazquez Jr in Brooklyn in June, and provides the Doncaster man’s first action in the UK since his two brilliant wins over Tomoki Kameda in Texas last year.

McDonnell turned 30 last week and believes a great performance against Vargas can see him land a unification bout in the summer, as he looks to dominate at 118lbs before a potential move to Super-Bantamweight. More...
