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.

Fury upsets Klitschko in epic snooze fest

By John J. Raspanti: Heavy underdog Tyson Fury (25-0, 18 KOs) captured the IBF, WBA, WBO, and Ring magazine titles by capturing a stunning unanimous decision over listless former champion Wladimir Klitschko (64-4, 53 KOs) at the Espirit Arena in Dusseldorf, Germany Saturday night.

Top 10 Year in Review

By Mikko Salo: The year 2014 saw the heavyweight division gather momentum on different fronts. In Europe, the main market in today`s heavyweight landscape, the Undisputed Champion Wladimir Klitschko fought a 5-round barnburner against top contender Kubrat Pulev. The entertaining HBO-televised match-up proved us once again what kind of a special era in heavyweight boxing we are all witnessing. Klitschko is one of the all-time heavyweight kings and is not about to relinquish his crown... Top 10 Year in Review

The Record Breaker

By David Tyler: On June 21, 2003, Lennox Lewis successfully defended his heavyweight belts by scoring a TKO over Vitali Klitschko. The event was held at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California. Why was this event important...simply because it drew the largest television audience ever to witness a boxing match broadcast by HBO...not HBO PPV but simply HBO!... The Record Breaker

Stiverne Blasts Life into the Heavies

By Gabriel Montoya (Photo © German Villasenor): When newly-crowned WBC heavyweight champion Bermane Stiverne walked down the Galen Center’s aisle toward his destiny this past Saturday, he had already walked a long, hard road to get there. Dreams of playing college football or possibly as a linebacker in the future were dashed by injury. At age 35, having languished on promoter Don King’s bench for years while fighting sporadically in the shadows... Stiverne Blasts Life into the Heavies

Make-up Call?

By Steve Kim: Despite Manny Pacquiao and Tim Bradley squaring off back in June of 2012, in the end, they weren’t the two most talked-about individuals involved. That distinction went to Duane Ford and CJ Ross. The two ringside judges were in the vast minority by scoring the fight for the “Desert Storm” in what was considered the 874th black eye for boxing and about the 43rd time the sport died. Alas... Make-up Call?

USS Cunningham Hopes to Stay Afloat vs. Amir Mansour

By Gabriel Montoya: In his fifth fight in the heavyweight division, 37-year-old Steve “USS” Cunningham, 26-6 (12), is in a crossroads bout. Pitted against fellow Main Events stablemate USBA titlist Amir Mansour, 20-0 (15), a 41-year-old “prospect,” Cunningham is fighting for Mansour’s belt, a higher ranking and a shot at a world title.

Adamek vs. Glazkov: the Time Is Now

By Gabriel Montoya: Tomasz Adamek and Vyacheslav Glazkov were supposed to meet in November of last year. They didn’t. Adamek got the flu and the fight was called off. He had fought his way to a heavyweight title shot in 2011 (a 10th round stoppage loss to Vitali Klitschko) and has since seemed content to make good money treading heavyweight water while biding his time for another shot. Glazkov, coming off two wins following a tough split draw with Malik Scott... Adamek vs. Glazkov: the Time Is Now

By Steve Kim (Photo © K9 Photos): It was the last sparring session for heavyweight Malik Scott this past Friday afternoon before departing for London where he faces Dereck Chisora at the Wembley Arena this upcoming weekend.

Sell tickets!” were the exhortations heard from Jesse Reid... Reid Pushes Scott

Tony “The Tiger” Thompson: the Boxer Who Came in from the Old

By Gabriel Montoya: Fans always talk about how screwed up the heavyweights are. Our late old friend and historian Bert Sugar used to tell anyone and everyone who would listen that if you put the world’s top heavyweights in a police line-up, in full fight gear and title belt regalia, no one would know who they were. But that joke is old. Sure, Joe Frazier isn’t even approaching the building much walking through that door but there is more to boxing’s glamour division than meets the eye...
