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.

Why Joe Smith might not be "Just Another Smith"

When Joe Smith Jr. knocked future Hall of Famer Bernard Hopkins out of the ring, and into retirement last weekend, a chorus of critics sang, “Hopkins is 51, So what?" and “Ten years ago, Hopkins would have toyed with Smith.” By John Raspanti Why Joe Smith might not be "Just Another Smith"

Raymond Merrill II lives his dream

By John J. Raspanti: Raymond Merrill II will not allow the fact that he was born deaf to stop his dream of pursuing a boxing career. Merrill made a promise to himself. No pity, no excuses. Growing up, he participated in sports, while inside, he raged. His father was sent to prison when he was two years old. He finally met him when he was seven.

Memo to Roy Jones Jr.: Retire Before You Get Killed

By John J. Raspanti: Roy Jones Jr. is one of the greatest fighters who ever lived. He began his career in 1989. That’s 26 years ago for those with math issues. He scored 17 straight knockouts before winning the IBF middleweight championship from future Hall of Famer Bernard Hopkins. 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.

“Stay Busy” – Sergey Kovalev vs. Nadjib Mohammedi

By Allan Cerf (Photo © David Spagnolo, Main Events): It’s difficult for your author to believe that this “stay busy” fight needs to happen; that said, it should be a lot of fun as all fights ending in KO/TKO are…and this brawl is virtually certain to end with one boxer unable to continue. Guess which one... Nadjib Mohammedi stepped up in class against Nathan Cleverly, the once-hyped Welsh fighter with a college degree in mathematics and lost.

HARD DOG BITES: Hunter's Stock Drops & Broner's Dubious Career Arc

By Blake Chavez: Virgil Hunter usually comes off as a cool customer, but in the second half of Amir Khan’s fight vs Chris Algieri, the Bay Area hipster trainer was literally sweating bullets while begging his charge to dig to Algieri’s body. He pleaded with Amir to stay in close when the going got tough, and to avoid running. Interesting to see Hunter in what appeared to be sheer panic-mode. It’s a good thing that Amir followed his own instincts and boxed his way to the win to HARD DOG BITES: Hunter's Stock Drops & Broner's Dubious Career Arc

5 Champs Who Will Remain and 5 Who Will Go in 2015

Boxing, as always, will endure; however, not every participant with an alphabet title will be so lucky.

Weekend combinations: Kovalev overwhelms Hopkins, Ali upends Abregu

By John J. Raspanti: It would be easy to write that Sergey Kovalev’s dominating victory over Bernard Hopkins was perpetuated by Hopkins suddenly getting old during the fight. Easy, but not exactly accurate. First off, Hopkins IS old. He’s two months shy of his fiftieth birthday, but what Kovalev did last Saturday night in Atlantic City, NJ, was something no other fighter in recent memory had been able to accomplish. He made Hopkins fight like an old man... Weekend combinations: Kovalev overwhelms Hopkins, Ali upends Abregu

On the Move: SecondsOut World Rankings Nov-11-14

By Derek Bonnett: Bernard Hopkins lost and he lost badly. However, losing badly two months shy of fifty years of age is still pretty good. Especially when the lopsided unanimous decision scores came against, the new SecondsOut number one rated light heavyweight in the world, Sergey "Krusher" Kovalev, who is not exactly used to hearing the judges final tallies in his fights. I expected Kovalev to finish Bernard to the body, but the end result confirmed two things. I was right about the victor On the Move: SecondsOut World Rankings Nov-11-14

Kovalev dominates Hopkins to capture WBA and IBF titles

By John J. Raspanti (Photo © Hogan Photos / Golden Boy): All great stories have to have an ending, but sadly they’re not always happy. The run of ageless wonder Bernard Hopkins ended Saturday night at The Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, NJ as heavy-handed Sergey Kovalev (26-0-1, 23 KOs) pounded him for 12 rounds to win their unification light heavyweight fight by a wide unanimous decision. The scores were 120-107 (twice) and 120-106. Maxboxing.com and Doghouseboxing scored the bout 120-107 for Kovalev dominates Hopkins to capture WBA and IBF titles

Why Hopkins is fighting Kovalev

Why Hopkins is fighting Kovalev

By Vikram Birring (Image by icheehuahua, MaxBoxing): Many years ago, Bernard Hopkins was an afterthought in boxing at the championship level. He lost two close decisions to Jermain Taylor, in which he saved his energy until the final rounds and mounted furious rallies, but gave up too many early ones to win on the scorecards. He claimed that the weight hindered his energy amount, not his age; at the time he was forty, ancient in boxing terms. So he moved up to 175 pounds, to face... Why Hopkins is fighting Kovalev

Did knockdown wake Kovalev up?

By John J. Raspanti (Photo © Rich Graessle / Main Events): After her undefeated fighter, Sergey Kovalev, hit the canvas Saturday night in Atlantic City, NJ, veteran promoter Kathy Duva said she saw her life flash before her eyes. The Main Events’ CEO expected WBO light heavyweight champion Kovalev to demolish his opponent, Blake Caperello, with relative ease at the Revel Casino. Instead, Duva’s "million dollar baby" was floored by his underdog opponent... Did knockdown wake Kovalev up?

On the Move: SecondsOut World Rankings 8/3/14

By Derek Bonnett: Sometimes expectations are right on the money. In the case of this week’s bouts featuring ranked fighters in action, we pretty much got what we expected. However, sometimes the expectations fight fans put on a particular bout are way too high and leave us all a little disappointed and deflated. Such was the case of the welterweight bout between Brandon Rios and Diego Chaves. From the moment it was signed, Fight of the Year implications became rampant. I even listed the bout in On the Move: SecondsOut World Rankings 8/3/14

Kovalev crushes Caparello, Rios wins by disqualification

By John J. Raspanti (Photo © Rich Graessle / Main Events): WBO light heavyweight champion Sergey “The Krusher” Kovalev, who yesterday signed a contract to face ageless Bernard Hopkins in the fall, retained his title Saturday night by annihilating Blake Caparello in round two at the Revel Casino Hotel in Atlantic City, New Jersey. Kovalev, defending his belt for the third time, stalked the crafty Caparello in the opening stanza. Caparello, a southpaw, tried to keep his distance by sticking out Kovalev crushes Caparello, Rios wins by disqualification

Golovkin’s Dilemma

By Matthew Hurley: With all the lunacy that goes on in boxing it’s always refreshing when a brilliant talent comes along. It’s even better when that fighter is a complete professional and a good guy to boot. Middleweight titlist Gennady Golovkin, or GGG as his fans call him, is turning into something special. A fighter who loves to perform, who pines for the big fight against anyone willing to step in the ring with him and who smiles like a young kid who can’t believe how great everything is Golovkin’s Dilemma

Unforgettable Trash Talkers: Part: One

By Benny Henderson Jr.: I remember the old adage, “you can talk the talk, but can you walk the walk?” Basically telling your foe to shut his mouth and start throwing dukes. And we as boxing fans have come across many great talkers in the game, some who were pretty much mouth, some, well, their hands were just as hard as their words. Throughout the years trash talking has become a sales pitch of sorts, in the minds of many, if bad blood is not brewing, it would appear that... Unforgettable Trash Talkers: Part: One

"Money" Mayweather’s Diminishing Returns

The fact is, despite Maidana’s spirited effort in fight one, Mayweather closed out the show after the sixth round as he usually does. Michael Pernick’s scorecard of 114-114 was a ridiculous tally...
