Kell Brook Now Walking without Crutches, Hopes to Hit the Gym Next Year. Kell Brook defeated Shawn Porter to become the IBF Welterweight Champion. Kell Brook seemed to be headed to a mega fight with Amir Khan in the UK but those plans were derailed a few weeks back when Kell got attacked at a party and the assailant cut the back of Kell's leg with a machete. The cut was deep and bad but thankfully it missed his major arteries in his leg. It will take time to heal and it seems as if Kell Brook won't even begin to start training until early 2015. With that said, we probably won't see Kell defend his title until May 2015 sometime. Stay tuned and hopefully we will have more news…Continue
Marchchristopher Adkins relied on defense, stamina and sharp body shots to pull away with a split decision over Shane Mosley, Jr. In a tough loss Shane just didn't do enough to get the win tonight. Shane is trained by his legendary father Shane Mosley Jr. Hopefully he will learn from this loss and get right back into training this Monday and work even harder for his next fight.

Guillermo Rigondeaux is one of the most accomplished boxers in amateur boxing history, but as a pro many, including me thought he wouldn't make it as a pro, because of his boxing style, but what I have seen from him is that he has learned to fight a more pro style, and stand in the pocket and sit down on his punches. His boxing IQ is very sharp, but he is use to not being hit without headgear and he has handled it pretty well so far. Leo Santa Cruz is suppose to be the X-factor to the Riogdeaux boxing curse, but his team with AL Haymon has been reluctant in making the contest for over a year now.
Now they feel as if Santa Cruz is ready to challenge him, and the fans are ready because even after his victory over the betting favorite…Continue
Brooklyn, NY (September 19, 2014) -- The heavyweight division is moving closer to the post-Klitschko era. Vitali Klitschko has retired and Wladimir Klitschko can't have many more years left at the top of the heap.
Fight fans are now looking for fighters who will be stepping in to fill the vacuum. New York-based promoter Dmitriy Salita believes that he promotes a boxer with the skills, and the punch, and the charisma, to help fill the gap when the Klitschkos are out of the picture.
You can see for yourself what Jarrell "Big Baby" Miller brings…
Al Haymon has done a good job with hiring new fighters. Everyone and their momma want to sign with Al Haymon. Why? First he has to "share" TV Dates with Oscar De La Hoya on Showtime. Yes I heard he is "working" on a NBC deal. However, how much "money" is NBC willing to spend each year on their budget. This brings me to my next point. Fighters that Al Haymon already has and I like to call it the "grandfathered in plan" are already set in stone for their pay. Yes Floyd will get $32 Million minimum a fight, yes Adrien Broner will get his $1 Million minimum a fight and so on.
What about the New Boxers? If you have over 100 fighters in your stable, and your working on TV dates plus "hopefully" an NBC deal, well just how much money do you think there is to go around? Al Haymon is a multimillionaire but don't get it twisted, Al is not going to "come out of his own" pocket to make…Continue
Rafael Garcia is no longer in charge of taping Floyd Mayweather Jr.'s fists and being his cutman, something he has done since 2001. The main reason: It's time to retire at 85 years of age.
Garcia's name is among those mentioned in possible changes that Mayweather will make to his team along with Maayweather Promotions CEO Leonard Ellerbe. Garcia did not wrap Mayweather's hands during Saturday's rematch against Marcos Maidana. "Yes, it's true I didn't tape him, but he hasn't fired me," Garcia told ESPNDeportes.com. "I thanked him after the fight because I retired from boxing, but I'm fine with him. Thanks to him I live how I live.
Garcia didn't find out that he had been relieved of his duties on Saturday until the last minute.
"Floyd told me to go with Mickey Bey for his fight against…
