By John J. Raspanti (Photo © German Villasenor): The appeal of WBA middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin is obvious. He’s soft-spoken and kind. He never dismisses an opponent. When he wins a fight, he’s almost apologetic. But it seems what fight fans love most about Golovkin is that the man can flat-out punch. On Saturday night, at a sold-out StubHub Arena in Carson, CA, Golovkin made Marco Antonio Rubio his eighteenth consecutive knockout victim. The end came in the second round...

By Jason Petock (Photo © German Villasenor): This past weekend hosted an "on the surface" boxing extravaganza for all who are fans of the fine and at times often lost art of pugilism. The players were ready to go and the stage was set. Electricity crackled in the atmosphere as the crowd clamored inside of the StubHub Center in Carson, California to see their hero Gennady "GGG" Golovkin (31-0/ 28 KOs) wage battle against well-seasoned veterano Marco "El Veneno" Antonio Rubio...

By Derek Bonnett (Photo © German Villasenor, Max Boxing): The world of professional fisticuffs yields plenty of surprises, typically the direct result of unprofessional behavior, poor officiating, or dubious scoring. However, one of the biggest surprises this weekend was produced from a very positive interaction. After decimating Nonito Donaire -- former Pound for Pound number three --, Jamaica’s Nicholas Walters engaged his vanquished foe yet again after the bout concluded.

By John J. Raspanti at ringside (Photo © German Villasenor, MaxBoxing): Nicholas Walters proved his time is now by stopping defending WBA super world featherweight champion Nonito Donaire in round six at a sold-out StubHub Arena in Carson, California Saturday night. The bout started slow. Walters (25-0, 21 KOs) tried to establish his jab. Donaire (33-3. 21 KOs) fired his dangerous left hook. Near the middle of the round the punch landed. Walters connected with a right at the bell... Walters proves too powerful for Donaire

By David Tyler: Sometime in the year 1019 BC on a warm night in the Valley of Elah, boxing’s first major upset occurred. A young middleweight fighter named David decided he had heard enough boasting from a large heavyweight named Goliath. David also knew that in the unlikely event that he were to win this bout, it would be his signature victory that would carry him to greater rewards in sports and politics. As we all know, David scored a one punch knockout of the much feared Goliath. David had David versus Goliath

By Allan Scotto: When Joe DeGuardia, the President and CEO of Star Boxing signed Chris Algieri to meet Ruslan Providnikov in the ring at the Barclay’s Center in Brooklyn, New York on June 14th, 2014, many people wondered what Algieri had done to make DeGuardia so angry.

By Derek Bonnett: Jermain Taylor and Cornelius Bundrage are once again world champions. There, I said it. I wish I would have said it last week, but at that time the very notion of Jermain Taylor and Cornelius Bundrage regaining their former world titles seemed highly unthinkable. In Taylor’s case, the notion seemed laughable to me.

By John J. Raspanti: He’s not well known, even in his chosen profession. His professional boxing record (9-4-2, 3 KOs) appears, at least on the surface, to be mediocre. But looks can be deceiving. Michael Ruiz Jr. began his career with a bang. He won his first eight bouts in succeRuiz Jr. fights his opponent and the judgesssion.

By Derek Bonnett: Aside from the ring action which transpired inside of the squared circles around the world, there was a small buzz on-line concerning professional leather throwing on the international scene in a historical frame of reference. That’s right, the list of candidates for induction into the International Boxing Hall of Fame was released and, thus, generated some mild conversation as far as who was or was not deserving from the modern era.

Review by John J. Raspanti: Around the turn of the century, pugilist Joe Choynski was almost as famous as reigning heavyweight champion James J. Jeffries. Choynski had earned his respect the old-fashioned way--by never shying away from a challenge. Over the past sixty years, Choynski’s fistic exploits have faded. But a new book written by Christopher J. LaForce restores some of the luster to Choynski’s name... The Choynski Chronicles: A Biography of Hall of Fame Boxer Jewish Joe Choynski

By John J. Raspanti: Last year, Ray Beltran traveled to Glasgow, Scotland to face WBO lightweight champion Ricky Burns. At that point in his career, Beltran, 33, was best known as Manny Pacquiao’s sparring partner. Most experts predicted that Burns would box circles around the slower Beltran. But Beltran went to Scotland on a mission to win, and after 12 rounds of boxing, most who witnessed the bout believed he deserved the decision. Even Burns’ hometown crowd seemed resigned that the...

By John J. Raspanti: Aging WBO super middleweight champion Arthur Abraham was awarded a dubious 12-round unanimous decision over heavy underdog Paul Smith at the Sparkassen Arena in Kiel, Germany Saturday night. The scores were 117-111 (twice) and a ridiculous 119-109. The judges scoring doesn’t reflect how close and competitive the match was.

By John J. Raspanti: Former WBO and WBIF flyweight champion “Mighty” Melissa McMorrow hasn’t fought in the United States in over three years. Circumstances have forced McMorrow, and former champions Ava Knight and Ana Julaton, to become road warriors—which is almost always a disadvantage. Four weeks ago, McMorrow, 33, traveled to Ecatepec, Mexico to face popular Jessica Chavez. She had a pretty good idea what to expect, after tangling with Mariana Juarez in Pueblo last February...

By Marc Livitz: As the respective chapters close on the colorful and always debatable careers of Floyd Mayweather, Jr. and Manny Pacquiao, the sweet science will undoubtedly have its new crop of torchbearers in the coming years. Meanwhile, the sports crazed nation of Mexico has always had its nationalistic hands full when it comes to the legends of the sport.

By John J. Raspanti (Image by icheehuahua, MaxBoxing): In many of his films, famed movie director Alfred Hitchcock used a term called a MacGuffin. Usually, a MacGuffin is a plot device that appears to be the central focus of a film, but eventually it loses importance. It may re-appear at the climax of the story, but is normally forgotten. This past Saturday night, the MacGuffin heading into the rematch between pound-for-pound king Floyd Mayweather and Marcos Maidana, was that Mayweather’s legs Weekend combinations: Mayweather remains perfect, but doesn’t impress the masses
