    ON THIS DAY: 23 years ago, stoned Mike Tyson demolished Andrew Golota in such a way that he refused to enter the third round! In just two rounds, he gave him a fractured cheekbone, a neck injury and a concussion!

    That was Tyson stoned, imagine what he would have done if he was off the drugs.

    🥊 On 30th of October 1974, one of the most famous fights in boxing history took place in Zaire, Africa. In the fight with the huge puncher George Foreman, few gave him the slightest chance, but Muhammad Ali shocked the world with an incredible performance, ending with a spectacular knockout

    Question Re: This day in boxing. A look back.

    I read the whole article the article was quite interesting but you can say my question is irrelevant to the article the question is did boxers use punching bags in the late 1800s? because this question stuck in my mind and I want to know about it.

    It was always the consensus that Gabe was the better of the brothers but not against The Professor. In the main event a likable Tiajuana taxi driver named Greg got battered by Julio c Chavez .

    It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.

    22 year old O'Grady vs the first word champion trained by Emanual Steward and the first champion of Kronk Gym. Hilmer Kenty was also the first fighter from Detroit since the great Joe Louis. Ironically enough Joe Louis had passed away earlier this same day at the age of 66.

    Sean O'Grady was a very good commentator too, but did not realise he was Manny first champ.

    Anthony Joshua got off the canvas to beat Wladimir Klitschko in a classic world heavyweight title contest on this day in 2017.

    Roared on by the majority of the 90,000 crowd at a packed Wembley Stadium, the Briton recovered from a knockdown in the sixth round to stop the Ukrainian great in the 11th.

    The then 27-year-old’s victory, which heralded the start of a new era in the heavyweight division, saw him add the WBA belt to his IBF crown.

    Both fighters appeared on the brink of defeat at various stages of a see-saw clash which burst into life when Joshua floored veteran Klitschko in the fifth round.

    The 41-year-old recovered to put Joshua down, for the first time in his career, in the next but the younger man hit back in brutal fashion to drop Klitschko for a second time in the 11th.
    Klitschko regained his feet but was felled again by a left hook and referee David Fields intervened to stop the contest moments after his next attempt to continue.

    “I came out and I won,” said Joshua. “I didn’t go into the slugfest, I came back and fought my heart out.

    “Boxing is about character. As I said from the get-go, it will be a boxing classic.”

    Klitschko was gracious in defeat and retired three months later, marking the end of an era in which he and his brother Vitali had dominated the heavyweight division.

    He said: “It was really sad I didn’t make it. I was planning to do it, it didn’t work – but all respect to Anthony.

    “I thought he wouldn’t get up, he managed to get up. Respect.”

    Great catch. Still say that's one of the best top hvy fights in last 10 years. Went in a fan knocking Wlad style and run and writing off AJ, but left respecting both big time.

    James DeGale made history by claiming the vacant IBF super-middleweight title with a thrilling unanimous decision victory over Andre Dirrell in Boston on this day nine years ago.

    DeGale became the first person to win Olympic gold and a world crown in the professional ranks for Britain after withstanding a fierce comeback from his American opponent.

    The Londoner appeared on course for a sensational early stoppage after dropping Dirrell twice in the second round, with the first knockdown coming from a brutal overhand left.


    Dirrell weathered the storm in the early rounds as DeGale, who won middleweight gold at the Beijing Olympics in 2008, looked for the knockout and even came on strong in the second half of the fight.
    But DeGale finished strongly and two judges scored the fight 114-112 in his favour, with the third of 117-109 seemingly a bit harsh on Dirrell.

    After improving his record to 21-1 (14KOs), DeGale said: “I’ve finally done it. It’s an unbelievable feeling, I’m world champ. I made history.

    “I will take on any super-middleweight in the world, I’m hard to beat when I’m at my best.

    “(Dirrell) is a very, very good opponent, he’s very talented, he’s hard to beat, if anything it’s me and him second and third in the rankings. Andre Ward’s there and there’s me and him. There’s no other super-middleweight that would beat me on my day.”

    DeGale held the title until 2017 when he lost it to Caleb Truax before regaining it in a rematch with the American the following year.

    He retired from professional boxing after a defeat by Chris Eubank Jr in February 2019.
