British middleweight champion Nick Blackwell has been seeing a sports psychologist ahead of his November 14 title defence against Jack Arnfield in the hope that weekly sessions will eradicate a tendency to start slow in fights.
Blackwell won the Lonsdale belt in May with a stunning seventh-round stoppage of John Ryder at a sold-out O2 Arena, but had to rally back from a slow start to do so. He then experienced the same kind of start in July, when successfully defending his belt with a brutal one-punch knockout of Damon Jones in Derby, and has since gone looking for answers. More...

It was a good weekend at the fights and we go straight to the Thomas and Mack Center in America's Boxing capital, Las Vegas where the WBO welterweight title was fought over last night by champion Tim Bradley Jr, 33-1-1 (13), and challenger Brandon Rios, 32-3-1 (24).
Former WBA lightweight champion Rios reportedly gained over twenty pounds since the previous day's weigh-in and his performance confirms that evidence of a weight-drained boxer as Bradley had no trouble whatsoever hitting his adversary while avoiding most of what was thrown his way.
Bradley boxed rings around Rios and used body shots to produce his first stoppage victory in four years as a spearing left to the midsection put the 29 year old California resident down in the ninth before overwhelming Rios moments later to prompt referee Tony Weeks to call a halt to the action at 2:49 of the round.
"Desert Storm" retains his WBO belt for the first time in his second reign as champion and now is in a great position to engage in unification bouts with the other titlists at welterweight or perhaps Floyd Mayweather Jr will come out of retirement and face the one fighter that he arguably avoided in the latter stages of his career.
Rios is reportedly contemplating retirement following the third loss in his last five appearances.
The undercard saw a dominant title defense by WBO featherweight champion Vasyl Lomachenko, 5-1 (3), who stopped outgunned Mexican challenger Romulo Koasicha, 25-5 (15).
A two-time Olympic gold medallist, Lomachenko started his pro career at world class level and hopefully will rematch the only man to put a loss on his record; Omar Salido, in early 2016. More...

Scotty Cardle retained his British Lightweight title with a final round stoppage of Sean ‘Masher’ Dodd in a thrilling clash at the Echo Arena in Liverpool.
Cardle was defending the title for the first time and was behind on the judges’ cards when he unleashed a brutal barrage on the Birkenhead man, with referee Terry O’Connor stepping in with a minute left in the fight.
Dodd enjoyed prolonged periods of success throughout, to the joy of his vociferous fans, and looked to have the champion in trouble in the tenth round, but the Lytham St. Annes' man weathered the storm and coped with some bad cuts to his face to fire his fight-winning salvo at the death – but was the first to admit that Dodd was the better man on the night.

With HRH Prince Albert looking on, the former WBO junior-welterweight champion wasn't unduly stretched as he hit his stride early and pounded away until the finish of their scheduled 10-round welterweight clash. More...

Aussie sensation Cameron Hammond says he'll be more than happy if he has to box his way to victory over Sahlan Coral on the undercard of the big Mundine v Hartley bill in Melbourne on November 11.
The 2012 Olympian has shown his devastating power in recent outings, with his last four opponents failing to hear the final bell.
But he's prepared to go the long route to take his record winning run to 15 fights and move a step closer to his dream of winning the Commonwealth welterweight title. More...

It was cold outside, the temperature dipping into the low 50s, but the elements did not affect unbeaten Antoine “Action” Douglas, however, as the talented world-ranked middleweight turned up the heat and impressively knocked out Les Sherrington in the fourth round in the main event of a ShoBox: The New Generation quadrupleheader Friday live on Showtime.
Douglas (19-0-1, 13 KOs), of Burke, Va., dropped Sherrington (35-8, 19 KOs), of Broadbeach, Queensland, Australia, five times before the one-sided fight for the WBO International 160-pound title was stopped at 1:02 of the fourth. The quick, hard-hitting Douglas dropped Sherrington one time in the first and second rounds, two times in the third and once in the fourth. More...

Undefeated Cardiff cruiserweight Craig 'The Kid' Kennedy knows that victory on November 14 in Bristol can pave the way for a British title shot in the new year, but is quick to stress he's taking it one step at a time.
The talented 30-year-old outscored Courtney Fry in an eliminator for the British title in June and, should he remain undefeated next weekend, can expect to meet Tony Conquest in a final eliminator for the Lonsdale belt by the end of next February. More...

Carl Frampton and Scott Quigg will meet for the IBF and WBA Super-Bantamweight titles at the Manchester Arena on Saturday February 27 2016.
The eagerly anticipated showdown between the British rivals was announced live on Sky Sports News with the pair putting titles, unbeaten records and bragging rights on the line in the blockbuster.
Belfast favourite Frampton took the IBF crown from Kiko Martinez last September and has defended the title twice this year, stopping Chris Avalos in Belfast in February before an exciting debut on US soil in May where he climbed off the canvas twice in the opening round to defeat Alejandro Gonzalez Jr. More...

There was a big fight card on Wednesday at the Basket-Hall Arena in Kazan, Russia with heavyweight Alexander Povetkin headlining the bill.
The former WBA champ and current WBC mandatory challenger Povetkin, 30-1 (22), fought through an early cut to outbox towering veteran Mariusz Wach, 31-2 (17), for most of the clash until the contest was halted in the 12th and final round due to a cut suffered by Wach.
American based Pole Wach didn't have much trouble in hitting the shorter Povetkin, something that doesn't bode well for the Russian's future WBC title challenge of champion Deontay Wilder, but wasn't active enough to seriously trouble the ex-WBA king.
The curse of Rocky Marciano struck again last night as IBF super lightweight champ Cesar Rene Cuenca failed in his bid to go to 49-0 as he was counted out at 2:44 of the sixth round after he and challenger Eduard Troyanovsky crashed together to the canvas and Cuenca did not continue to fight.
Cuenca, 48-1 (2), was making his first defense and failed to equal heavyweight Rocky Marciano's legendary undefeated record as Troyanovsy, 23-0 (20), is now the IBF champion.
Reigning WBA cruiserweight champion Denis Lebedev, 28-2 (21), fared far better in his title defense, bashing up American based challenger Lateef Kayode, 21-1 (16), before producing a stoppage at 1:22 of the eighth round. More...

Ryan Burnett will face Jason Booth for the vacant British Bantamweight title at the Manchester Arena on November 21, live on Sky Sports.
The unbeaten Belfast man fights for his first major title in his first taste of action under new promoter Eddie Hearn, with the Adam Booth-trained talent looking to move into double figures for stoppage wins in his 12th pro outing.
Booth has won the Lord Lonsdale belt at Flyweight and Super Bantamweight, and the experienced Nottingham man will be aiming to land the coveted strap at a third weight in his second attempt – but Burnett believes the step-up in opposition will see him produce his best. More...
