By John J. Raspanti (Photo © German Villasenor, MaxBoing): When they met in the center of the ring fifty-seven-years ago, Gene Fullmer and Carmen Basillo attacked each other like there was no tomorrow.

By John J. Raspanti (Image Left to Right: Ali - Frazier): When the news broke, that arguably the most extraordinary person of the 20th Century was in the hospital, I felt a sense of dread. I muttered to myself, "He can’t die,"- yet knowing that we all do-even ,"The Greatest,“ Muhammad Ali. Ali first basked in the international spotlight when he won a gold medal at the 1960 Olympic Games in Rome. His name wasn’t Muhammad Ali then. It was Cassius Clay. He was brash, handsome, and charismatic. Even death can’t keep Muhammad Ali down

By John J. Raspanti: When last seen in the ring, six-foot-eight-inch giant David Price stood in his corner with a dazed expression on his face, tears rolling down his cheeks. For the third time in his career, Price, 32, had been knocked out in a professional boxing match. His fall from grace had been swift and dramatic. Only three and a half years ago, Price, of Liverpool, England, appeared to be on his way to a shot at the heavyweight championship of the world. ESPN named him "Prospect of the Y Is heavyweight David Price delusional?

By John J. Raspanti: Rising New Zealand heavyweight Joseph Parker (19-0, 16 KOs) likely earned a shot at current IBF heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua by winning a hard-fought 12 round unanimous over tough Carlos Takam (33-3-1, 25 KOs) at a rocking Vodafone Events Centre in, Manukau City, New Zealand Saturday night.

By John J. Raspanti: Losing a fight can change everything in a boxer’s career. His or her confidence can be shattered. Promoters might reconsider their investment. Fans can get ugly. But a loss can also motivate a fighter to work harder. Super middleweight Mike “Hollywood” Jimenez was undefeated when he rolled into Las Vegas, NV. to face Jessie Hart last year. He left “Sin City” with his first loss. Though disappointed, Jimenez, 28, got right back to work. He traveled to Australia to train, and Determined Jimenez ready to make his mark

In round two, Alvarez (47-1-1, 33 KOs) Alvarez knocks Khan cold in round six
Fri 6-May-2016
By John J. Raspanti: Amir Khan has always been something of an enigma. Nobody doubts his skills. Khan is a former Olympic silver medalist as well as a two-time world champion. =He can punch (23 knockouts in 31 professional fights) and box. Khan is athletic. He can use the ring when needed. His jab can sting. But there are flaws in his game. Khan has lost three fights, two by knockout. He’s kissed the canvas many times... His chin has been suspect for years. He takes too many chances, Khan might be quicker, but Alvarez has the equalizer
Wed 4-May-2016
By John J. Raspanti: Three months ago in Legionowo, Poland, heavyweight Mike Mollo knocked out favored Karzysztof Zimnoch in barely two minutes. The Polish faithful were stunned.

Thu 28-Apr-2016
By John J. Raspanti (Photo © German Villasenor, MaxBoxing.com): Trying to predict what will happen in the ring this Saturday night, when former world champions Victor Ortiz (31-5-2, 24 KOs) and Andre Berto (30-4, 23 KOs) meet for the second time, is equivalent to predicting the outcome of this year’s election.

By John J. Raspanti: WBA and IBF middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin will be gunning for knockout victory number 22 in a row when he faces little-known Dominic Wade April 23rd) at the Fabulous Forum in Los Angeles, CA.

Thu 14-Apr-2016
By John J. Raspanti: When defending WBO super middleweight champion Arthur Abraham arrived in Las Vegas last week, he expected to be a big favorite to win on April 9. Makes sense. During his 16-year career, Abraham has swapped punches with most of the best fighters in his division, including former champions Carl Froch and Andre Ward. Instead Abraham learned his opponent, unheralded youngster Gilberto Ramirez, was favored by most to defeat him... Ramirez has his way with Abraham

Raspanti (Photo © German Villasenor, MaxBoxing): Many were surprised when promotional company Top Rank announced a few months ago that former eight-division world champion Manny Pacquiao would fight WBO welterweight champion Timothy Bradley for the third time at the MGM Garden Arena in Las Vegas, NV this Saturday.

It was 1975 and he had just seen the Muhammad Ali/Chuck Wepner fight. Something had clicked. Living off caffeine and ambition, Stallone took just three days to write a screenplay that he would eventually title “Rocky.” MGM Studios liked his writing but not him.

In 1994, Jones Jr. gave James Toney a boxing lesson over 12 rounds to win the super middleweight belt. Two years later, he captured Mike McCallium’s light heavyweight title.
