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.

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

By Derek Bonnett: As we encounter another new year, the landscape of the boxing scene continues to evolve. With old champions acting out the final stages of their careers and new ones emerging to fill the void, boxing maintains a state of homeostasis and keeps fight fans intrigued even amid the dubious officiating and cries of scandal. Boxing, as always, will endure; however, not every participant with an alphabet title will be so lucky. Inevitably, the mighty will eventually fall and, 5 Champs Who Will Remain and 5 Who Will Go in 2015

Garcia vs. TBA on HBO

By Steve Kim (Photo © Chris Farina / Top Rank): After his victory over Juan Carlos Burgos on January 25th at the Theater at Madison Square Garden in New York City, talk turned immediately of having Mikey Garcia face the undefeated Cuban Yuriorkis Gamboa. The first proposed date was May 17th then was pushed back to June 21st. Unfortunately, this fight will not take place because of, well, what else? Money. “It broke down over money.

K9’s Holiday Mailbag

By Steve Kim: Well, there isn’t much going on in the world of boxing till we turn the calendar to 2014 and because of that, well, there isn’t all that much to write about. Maybe I could do a pound-for-pound list...eh…forget that. So it’s time to get my Doug Fischer on and break out a mailbag (Hey, Maxboxing needs the content and page views)...

The Pay-Per-View Soapbox – Aug. 8, 2013

By Steve Kim: In five weeks the most highly-anticipated pay-per-view card of 2013 takes place at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas when Floyd Mayweather faces Saul Alvarez. What has added to the anticipation of this event is the addition of Lucas Matthysse’s battle versus Danny Garcia, a fight that could easily headline on Showtime on its own merits. Whoever was waffling on purchasing “The One,” is now probably off the fence. They will be forking over their hard earned money for this show... The Pay-Per-View Soapbox – Aug. 8, 2013

I Said That? A 2012 Preview Review: Part Two

By Marty Mulcahey: In Part One of the annual “Preview Review,” I lamented journalists making predictions in 2012 certain in the knowledge that few readers will remember what was penned 365 days ago. To write for Maxboxing is to be held to a higher standard. To that end, I venture back in time to review my predictions for 2012, a yearly ritual of evaluating choices that fluctuates between self-abuse and narcissism.

Prospect of the Year Danny Jacobs looks ahead to 2010

By Gabriel Montoya (Photo © Howard Schatz): If you’re one of those fight fans who watches pay-per-view undercards as closely as the main event then you’ve been aware of middleweight prospect Daniel “The Golden Child” Jacobs long before he made his biggest splash of 2009. A standout amateur boxer who won every award under the sun with the lone exception of an Olympic berth, Jacobs turned pro in December 2007 on the Ricky Hatton/Floyd Mayweather, Jr undercard and has since been a fixture on some Prospect of the Year Danny Jacobs looks ahead to 2010

Martin Mulcahey: In part two of this yearly series six more weight classes are evaluated, traveling north in weight from featherweight to jr. middleweight. In part one the weight classes covered were from strawweight up to jr. featherweight, and I gave my prediction on a champion that will stay, champion that will go, and a prospect to keep an eye on. The titlists from the IBF, WBA, WBC, and WBO were considered in selecting the champions who I believe will keep or lose their title. The only Preview and predictions for 2010 – Part II
