  • Badou Jack-James DeGale: Let’s Hope for Short Roads to Travel - Boxing News
    big chance here but he has at least a puncher s chance and Medina hasn t had a clear loss since December 2016 That loss It came against Jack Jack stopped Medina in six just one fight before the lone blemish on his ledger After a first round stoppage loss to Derek Edwards Jack was considered sent to the also ran pile by generally everyone It turned out that sometimes an early loss is just that In 2015 Jack had one of the best years of any active fighter upsetting Anthony Dirrell for the WBC belt and then challenger George Groves One good resurrection story meets another when Jack faces Lucian Bute 32 3 25 KO on Saturday Bute hadn t looked the same even very good since being hammered by Carl Froch in 2012 The best super middleweight who wasn t in the Super Six was suddenly the exposed guy who never would have cut it in that field A loss to Jean Pascal where Bute had only a late closing effort to hang his hat on after losing badly most of the night seemed his end Late last year he showed that maybe the late rally against Pascal woke something up Bute didn t win but he gave a hell of an effort and made a terrific fight That fight came against James DeGale Now Bute has a chance to maybe put himself in the running for a rematch and another crack at DeGale It s not inconceivable based on his last outing It s what makes this a fun main event Jack probably wins but it s no guarantee DeGale will try to top what Jack did against Medina Jack will try to show himself more the master of Bute If it all works out it will be proper fodder for a unification match in the fall If the destination ends up being DeGale Jack and we get a hell of a fight then no the journey won t surpass the destination But at least we might get more than a road stop along the way and it doesn t look like we ll be stuck in the car for too long Cliff Rold is the Managing Editor of BoxingScene a founding member of the Transnational Boxing Rankings Board and a member of the Boxing Writers Association of America He can be reached at email protected Tags Badou Jack James DeGale User Comments and Feedback Register For Free To Comment Comment by GalaxyKnuckles on 04 28 2016 Jack starting to build a nice lil resume Im rooting for him but i think Degale will ultimatey be a class above him Comment by Bobby Tony on 04 28 2016 Article says Medina hasn t had a clear loss since December 2016 You been time traveling again Comment by bulldognyc on 04 28 2016 We need more this in our beloved sport Degale is a good fighter So is Jack Let the best men win and meet later this

  • Victor Ortiz: It's Personal Now, I Just Want To Knock Berto Out! - Boxing News
    fight isn t going the distance All I know is I m going to knock him out It has been a while since Ortiz has been this focused on an opponent The usually jovial Ortiz can be seen with a smile on his face but it has been all business during training camp for the Mexican American The about face of Ortiz leading up to the Berto fight may be the best thing for him especially if he wants to continue fighting at the top level But he has to win Ortiz reportedly turned down a few movie roles prior to accepting the Berto fight which seem as though the acting career is on hold for now Some may still not take Ortiz seriously but that does not faze Ortiz Not to sound rude but I could care less what people have to say about me I ve lived my life with no regrets Now I have the opportunity to fight on a big stage on April 30 I m hungrier now than what I ve been when I seas younger I made the mistake of coming back too soon after the jaw injury against Josesito Lopez but I feel good as new Ortiz is not fighting for respect from anyone If anything he is fighting to find peace within himself The success he found outside the ring was nowhere in comparison to what he has accomplished in the ring Ortiz believes he is capable to repeat that success leading up to the Berto fight I will be a world champion again Watch Francisco A Salazar has written for BoxingScene com since September of 2012 and has covered boxing in Southern California and abroad since 2000 Francisco also covers boxing for the Ventura County CA Star newspaper RingTV and Knockout Nation He can be reached by email at email protected or on Twitter at FSalazarBoxing Tags Victor Ortiz Berto vs Ortiz Berto Ortiz Andre Berto User Comments and Feedback Register For Free To Comment Comment by ssc73 on 04 28 2016 I think Berto is the real fighter Ortiz had only been able to get it together for an occasional fight He rarely gives a full performance And I still can t get the Maidana fight out of my head that was a long Comment by larryxxx on 04 27 2016 I got Berto here by stoppage Comment by bbos on 04 27 2016 he ll be using face lube instead of Vaseline in this fight between rounds Comment by MEXfistology on 04 27 2016 as a mexican american i am ashamed of this bum Comment by KidDinamita on 04 27 2016 Me too he will not make it till the end I wish he would win this one though because he is a good fighter and always in good fights Post a Comment View More User Comments 7 Top Headlines WBC Prez Vows Investigation of Two Judges in Jack Bute DeGale Disappointed With His Performance Against Medina Moreno Outclasses

  • "Fighting Words" - Golovkin, Canelo and Positions of Power - Boxing News
    blow away their foes when we d be just as impressed if other boxers merely picked up a victory We want them to go up in weight potentially bite off more than they can chew and either go down in the history books or go down fighting The inconsistencies bother us We follow the business but we are fans of the sport The business tends to get in the way of the sport And so it bothered us when the business meant that fighters aligned with Al Haymon and featured on Showtime and or Premier Boxing Champions weren t going to be able to fight those aligned with HBO and certain promoters We ve had no fight between Kovalev and Adonis Stevenson due to their respective affiliations and interests and political maneuverings We had no bout between Golovkin and Haymon s major middleweights But even when there were no political obstacles we ve been without a fight between Golovkin who is consensus the top 160 pounder in the world and the men who by virtue solely of who they beat were considered the lineal middleweight champion Miguel Cotto toppled a hobbled Sergio Martinez and then stayed clear of Golovkin Alvarez defeated Cotto says he ll face Golovkin someday but otherwise made a deal with Golovkin and the World Boxing Council which mandated Canelo vs Golovkin for interim bouts HBO wants it to happen but there s still no guarantee Canelo vs Golovkin could still occur And there seems to now be a greater possibility of Haymon s fighters appearing on HBO since well it s happening in isolated instances Amir Khan is facing Alvarez Wade is an Al Haymon guy Golovkin s team had mentioned a move up to 168 in the past for fights with guys like Carl Froch and Julio Cesar Chavez Jr though not for Andre Ward back he was still a super middleweight As always it s not about consistency but about convenience about the dollars making sense We should just want good fights to happen not good reasons for them not to happen We should want the networks to broadcast the memorable and not merely the inevitable As with food sometimes we end up with second choices that aren t as satisfying Sometimes they leave bad tastes in our mouth We like Golovkin want better He and those who work with him need to make that happen Any more fighters who go down easy will be hard to stomach Fighting Words appears every Monday on BoxingScene com Pick up a copy of David s book Fighting Words The Heart and Heartbreak of Boxing at http bit ly fightingwordsamazon or internationally at http bit ly fightingwordsworldwide Send questions comments via email at email protected Tags Gennady Golovkin Saul Alvarez Golovkin vs Canelo Golovkin Canelo User Comments and Feedback Register For Free To Comment Comment by MC Hammer on 04 27 2016 QUOTE aboutfkntime 16650206 IMG http s2 quickmeme com img 79 79d69f096a7ceb3622d6f98ae9a40f4730fd1d7834f0521685304edcaf2dd611 jpg IMG Kessler Geale

    limited to the weight class in which he campaigns At best his time spent at the championship level likely tops out at bantamweight which still remains a tough market in the United States Few fighters south of that weight have been able to gain notoriety in North America much less earn a decent living Michael Carbajal and Humberto Chiquita Gonzalez remain the standard bearer for the sport s little big men in terms of in ring accomplishment and drawing power Johnny Tapia and Danny Romero were able to parlay their long standing crosstown rivalry into a lucrative payday with their July 97 head on collision airing live on HBO Ricardo Lopez easily the greatest strawweight of all time didn t even make a six figure payday until late in his legendary career With that Gonzalez has become the new standard for the earning potential in the lower weight classes a mark that figures to rise as he eventually tops his own shows D ue to the fact of my weight class the purses are not as high Gonzalez acknowledges I do believe that after this fight where Arroyo and I will give such a great fight that soon I will be receiving the purses that I deserve Carbajal became the first junior flyweight in fact the first ever boxer below featherweight in history to earn a 1 million payday The 1988 Olympic Gold medalist and then unified titlist earned that amount for his Feb 94 rematch with Gonzalez against whom he rallied from behind to score a stunning 7th round knockout in their March 93 unification match As Carbajal had Chiquita Tapia had Romero and to a lesser degree Lopez had Alvarez Gonzalez will likely need a divisional rival big enough to command the sizable fight purse his talent deserves To fill that void many point to reigning unified flyweight titlist Juan Francisco Estrada The talented boxer puncher from Mexico is credited with handing Gonzalez his stiffest challenge to date stemming from their Nov 12 war in Los Angeles Gonzalez prevailed by unanimous decision in what was the final defense of his junior flyweight title soon thereafter vacating the belt and moving up to flyweight Gonzalez had nothing to be ashamed of from that night but still attributes the less than dominant showing to weight struggles and also poor pre fight preparation The amount of media attention he gets back home in Nicaragua remains a blessing but also distracting at times For that reason he opted to relocate to Costa Rica in preparing for this weekend s adventure A lot is at stake in this the fourth defense of his flyweight championship Chief among them is the ability to fatten his bank account and open the door for his divisional peers to follow suit That motivates me because God gives me the will to win on Saturday Gonzalez admits of the possibility of playing that role I know that after that fight there will be a lot higher purses and
