Boxing and poker – maybe a start on something new?

Even though both sports are known for intense action and rough characters, boxing and poker aren’t usually combined. This didn’t stop Gus Hansen (known as one of the biggest full tilt poker names)and Danish poker pro Theo Jorgensen from duking it out. Both know as skilled poker players in both the online poker and live tournament circuit, did quite well as shown in the video.

Aussie boxing returns with a bang, Mundine destroys Browne in two

Boxing Downunder returned with a bang this past week with a series of big fight announcements featuring world-rated fighters and the first major fight card of the year. By Anthony Cocks Aussie boxing returns with a bang, Mundine destroys Browne in two

Catching up with the Dirrell brothers: Part 1 - Andre Dirrell

Two things immediately strike you when talking to Anthony and Andre Dirrell, the fighting pride of Flint, Michigan. Well, three things – first off, how pleasant and friendly the brothers are. By Allan Cerf Catching up with the Dirrell brothers: Part 1 - Andre Dirrell

The nine lives of Arthur Abraham

By John J. Raspanti: In a span of 14 months, Arthur Abraham lost three out of four fights. What made the losses so troubling was the fact that Abraham was barely competitive in the matches. Five years ago at the Joe Louis Arena in Detroit Michigan, Andre Dirrell was leading comfortably against Abraham when he slipped to the canvas in round 11. In a desperate move, Abraham felled Dirrell with an illegal blow--drawing an immediate disqualification. Eleven months after his defeat, Carl Froch... The nine lives of Arthur Abraham

DeGale floors Dirrell twice, wins IBF world title

By John J. Raspanti: James DeGale (21-1, 14 KOs) became the first British Olympic gold medalist to capture a world championship by winning a 12 round unanimous decision over Andre Dirrell (24-2, 16 KOs) Saturday afternoon at the Agganis Arena in Boston, Massachusetts. The scores were 114-112 (twice) and 117-109 for the new champion. Maxboxing.com and Doghouseboxing also had DeGale winning the fight by a 114-112 tally... DeGale floors Dirrell twice, wins IBF world title

DeGale likely to face Dirrell for super middleweight title

By John J. Raspanti: Super middleweight contender James DeGale has been calling out IBF champion Carl Froch for months. Froch, 37, also the “regular” WBA champion, scoffed at DeGale’s challenges, using words “lack of motivation” and “no interest.” Last Tuesday, Froch vacated his title, opening up the possibility that DeGale, 29, will face Andre Dirrell on April 25 at the O2 Arena in London, England. Dirrell, 31, answered in the affirmative when asked about fighting DeGale... DeGale likely to face Dirrell for super middleweight title

On the Move: December SecondsOut World Rankings

By Derek Bonnett: Typically, I reserve this space in my weekly On the Move column for a single thought. Usually, by the week’s end there is something burning on my mind that I just have to get out in the open regardless of the popularity of my comments. This week, as the end of 2014 draws near, I happen to have a lot I would like to get off my chest and felt the best method of delivery would be to just let it all hang out there for better or for worse, structure be damned. So, here are just a On the Move: December SecondsOut World Rankings

Dirrell looks sharp in comeback win

By John Raspanti: Back in the ring for only the third time since 2010, former super middleweight contender Andre Dirrell (22-1, 15 KOs) stopped overmatched Vladine Biosse (15-5-2, 7 KOs) in round five at The Little Creek Casino Resort in Shelton, Washington. The bout was the co-feature on ESPN’s “Friday Night Fights.” Dirrell, working out of the southpaw stance, took it to Biosse immediately in the opening rounds. He snapped off a triple jab and landed a sharp combination... Dirrell looks sharp in comeback win

Froch-Groves War at Wembley on May 31

By Bill Tibbs: On May 31, a raucous Wembley Stadium in England will be rocking when the rematch between Carl Froch, 32-2 (23), and George Groves, 19-1 (15), lights up London. The iconic soccer stadium should be as heated and lively as the fight between the two United Kingdom brawlers. The first fight ended in a somewhat controversial fashion and Groves is out to prove the stoppage, deemed too quick by some, was just that. Froch will look to erase any “controversy” tag from their first... Froch-Groves War at Wembley on May 31

The Best Fight of the Weekend?

By Steve Kim: While there is an overflow of coverage in the States revolving around the fight in Macao between Manny Pacquiao and Brandon Rios, to those in Jolly Ol’ England, that event is a mere curiosity. For the Brits, their main focus centers on the super middleweight grudge match between WBA and IBF super middleweight champion Carl Froch and upstart George Groves. In these parts, this is the fight of the weekend. Groves is a talented young contender who has the scalps of amateur nemesis J The Best Fight of the Weekend?

Will Stevens Expose the Real “GGG”?

By Gabriel Montoya (Photo © Will Hart / K2): In every Gennady Golovkin vs. Curtis Stevens article that quotes the 28-year-old former “Chin Checker”-turned-middleweight wrecking ball, Stevens comes off like a loud-mouthed dude who didn’t learn much from his early days as a tough-talking but not always hard-training 168 and 175-pound contender (the same contender who either peaked or bottomed out in a lackluster points loss to Jesse Brinkley in January 2010). But every time this writer Will Stevens Expose the Real “GGG”?

Get Ready for a Fast and Furious Fall

By Steve Kim: With the turn of the calendar and the summer coming to a close, boxing (which had been in a relative slumber) comes back to life starting this week. Maxboxing readers and fans often ask me, “Why do boxing and the networks shut it down between June and August?” The answer is very simple; since it’s evident that television viewing levels are down in the summer months (as people go on vacation, etc.), promoters and television execs aren’t as willing to stage major cards Get Ready for a Fast and Furious Fall

The Case for and Against Curtis Stevens

By Steve Kim: In a rather dreary edition of “Fight Night” on the NBC Sports Network from the Mohegan Sun this past Saturday night, Eddie Chambers was flummoxed by the counterpunching style of Thabiso Mchunu and then Tomasz Adamek had a perfunctory victory over the shopworn Dominick Guinn. But there was one notable bright spot, the continued resurgence of middleweight Curtis Stevens, who notched another eye-opening knockout victory over the usually durable Saul Roman...

Curtis Stevens: “I am ready to take over the middleweight division and be world champion.”

Some people have to fight to be champion. I have to fight to be a champion. To each his own. I don’t want anything given to me anyway so I’ll take it. That’s what I’m going to do.

Has Carl Froch learned from the past?

By Gabriel Montoya: The rematch between Carl “the Cobra” Froch and Mikkel “the Viking Warrior” Kessler is upon us. In the lead up to the fight at the O2 Arena, Froch was unable to get a few answers for my preview piece to me until after it came out. His conference call was cut short when his phone cut off. Thankfully, through Bernie Bahrmasel a connection with Froch was made. This being the first rematch for both men, I was curious if he saw anything different in this preparation that he missed Has Carl Froch learned from the past?

Azad Championship Report - Rematch for a Rematch?

By Steve Kim: This Saturday at the O2 Arena in London, England, a highly anticipated rematch takes place in the super middleweight division between Mikkel Kessler and Carl Froch (HBO, 6 p.m., ET/3 p.m. PT and 10 p.m., ET). The first time they met was back on April 24th, 2010 in Hernig, Denmark, where Kessler won a hard-fought, exciting unanimous decision in one of the better fights of Showtime’s “Super Six” series.

Azad Championship Report: The Weekend TV Cheat Sheet – Feb. 22, 2013

By Marty Mulcahey: Boxing fans are spoiled for choice this weekend with seven televised shows if widely available Spanish television networks are included in their viewing habits. This excess of action motivated me to try something new; instead of focusing on only one card, I am cherry-picking two world title fight main events since their undercards are lacking in either intrigue or competitiveness. I have been asked about other bouts this weekend as well and decided to make picks for other Azad Championship Report: The Weekend TV Cheat Sheet – Feb. 22, 2013

By Marty Mulcahey (Photo © Chris Farina / Top Rank): HBO is stepping up to host the first major fight card of the year - a tripleheader world title bill no less –providing added luster by staging the event at the revered Madison Square Garden. They are putting checkmarks by some of the important categories featuring a Mexico vs. Puerto Rico clash, a potentially great middleweight with knockout power in both hands and a fast-rising American star of Hispanic heritage.

Bob Arum, 50 Cent and the Art of Promotion

By Gabriel Montoya: A long time ago (a lifetime, seemingly) Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, rapper, entrepreneur and now boxing promoter, once laced them up himself as a Junior Olympics hopeful. It’s all part of the constant evolution of a man in perpetual, positive motion. “I competed a long time ago as an amateur,” 50 told Maxboxing.com’s Radio Rahim during a media day to inaugurate his career as a boxing promoter.

Julio Cesar Chavez Jr.: Will a New Legend Begin?

By Gabriel Montoya (Photo © German Villasenor): Once upon a time (according to popular perception and retelling), Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. grew up with a silver spoon in his mouth with servants and anything he wanted in all of Mexico if he would merely say the word. In reality, when he was just a little kid, the same harsh life any other boxer could tell you about began. “People always say that I was born into money, I was the son of a millionaire and all that,”...

By Marty Mulcahey: Boxing is back after a dreadfully slow end to the month of August and so is HBO’s “Boxing After Dark” series. September thunders out of the corner like a prime Tyson, thanks to tonight’s terrific main event between Gennady Golovkin and Grzegorz Proksa. They are top 10 middleweights who could be rated higher if boxing politics did not prevent them fighting other talented 160-pounders. Simply put, these are the two most exciting middleweights...

The Dog Days of Summer

By Steve Kim: The last few excruciatingly hot days of August are winding down. What looked like a promising time for boxing not too long ago is instead a month filled with fights that were either postponed, moved or flat out canceled. This has become a bit of a pugilistic purgatory before what looks to be an eventful September. However, this isn’t to say that absolutely nothing is happening in the boxing business. Folks...

By Jason Gonzalez: Pound-for-pound fighter extraordinaire Andre “S.O.G.” Ward returns to the squared circle for the first time since being named 2011’s “Fighter of the Year.” On September 8 on HBO, Ward will face WBC light heavyweight champion “Bad” Chad Dawson at super middleweight for supremacy at 168 pounds.
