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.

Pascal rewarded with rematch against Kovalev, but will he regret it?

​By John J. Raspanti: On January 30th, Jean Pascal will meet Sergey Kovalev for the second time in a boxing ring. Last year Kovalev, the WBA, IBF, and WBO light heavyweight titleholder, stopped former champion Pascal in Round eight at the Bell Centre in Montreal, Canada. The call for a rematch was hardly deafening. Kovalev was comfortably ahead on the judges’ scorecards at the time of the stoppage. He floored Pascal for the first time in his career and hurt him on numerous occasions... Pascal rewarded with rematch against Kovalev, but will he regret it?

Does Robert Guerrero have enough left in the tank to defeat Danny Garcia?

By John J. Raspanti Former two-division world champion Robert Guerrero is 32, considered young in just about every profession, except boxing. Two years ago, he fought the then pound-for-pound king Floyd Mayweather in Las Vegas, NV. The judges had Guerrero losing nine out of twelve rounds. The roughly three million dollars Guerrero pocketed likely helped to heal his wounds. Thirteen months later, Guerrero tangled with Yoshihiro Kamegai at the Stubhub Center in Carson, Calif.

Maxboxing 2015 Fighter of the year: Roman Gonzalez

By John J. Raspanti: Picking a “Fighter of the Year” can be a thankless job--especially when, at first glance, there’s no clear-cut winner. This year, four candidates deserved consideration. Gennady Golovkin dominated Martin Murray, Willie Monroe Jr., and David Lemieuz in 2015. His consecutive knockout streak has now reached 21. Canelo Alvarez blitzed James Kirkland in eight minutes and out-pointed future Hall Of Famer Miguel Cotto.

By John J. Raspanti: Crafty Billy Joe Saunders (23-0, 14 KOs) captured the WBO middleweight title by boxing his way to a tactical 12 round majority decision over Andy Lee (34-3-1, 24 KOs) Saturday night at Hunts Bank in Manchester, England.

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. Not a bad career at this point... Memo to Roy Jones Jr.: Retire Before You Get Killed

The heavyweight division is alive: Joshua stops Whyte in slugfest

By John J. Raspanti: Heavyweight prospect Anthony Joshua (15-0, 15 KOs) was staggered for the first time in his career, but still managed to knock out rival Dillian Whyte (16-1, 13 KOs) in the seventh round at the O2 Arena in London, England last Saturday night. Whyte gave the powerfully built Joshua extra motivation by reminding him over and over again of how he defeated him (2009) in an amateur bout. Joshua took it to Whyte in the opening stanza. He landed numerous hooks that staggered his The heavyweight division is alive: Joshua stops Whyte in slugfest

A Warrior’s heart with an old Man’s Body

By Benny Henderson Jr.: Anybody who follows any contact sport knows that it is a young man’s game. Professional football players rarely play on when they reach their mid to late thirties. The average age of a pro player is the mid-twenties. As you get older your skills start to decline, the speed goes first, your legs get weary, your back gets tired, the gas tank does not hold as much as it did when you were young. But the heart, the heart still beats strong, and with its desire, sometimes A Warrior’s heart with an old Man’s Body

Hard-punching Parker destroys Martz

By John J. Raspanti: Rising New Zealand heavyweight Joseph Parker remained undefeated by stopping towering Daniel Martz in the opening stanza Saturday night at the Cloudlands Arena in Hamilton, New Zealand. Martz (14-3-1, 11 KOs) glared at Parker during the pre-fight instructions. Standing a good three inches taller than the 6-foot-4 inch Parker, Martz was banking on his size making a difference. Maybe in basketball, but not boxing. Parker (17-0, 15 KOs) studied his opponent... Hard-punching Parker destroys Martz

Daniel Jacobs right hand stops Peter Quillin

By John J. Raspanti: As it turned out, the battle of Brooklyn wasn’t much of a skirmish as WBA middleweight champion Daniel Jacobs stopped former WBO titleholder Peter Quillin 85 seconds into the opening stanza at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York Saturday night. After a minute of feeling each other out, Jacobs (32-1, 29 KOs) connected with a straight right to Quillin’s temple.

Jacobs and Quillin fight for Brooklyn bragging rights

By John J. Raspanti: Brooklynite and WBA ‘regular’ (what is that?) titleholder Daniel Jacobs put his title on the line this Saturday night against fellow Bronx boxer and former champion Peter Quillin at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. Jacobs (30-1, 27 KOs) has won his last 10 fights in a row by knockout. He’s also something of a miracle man, having beaten life-threatening osteosarcoma in 2011. Last year he captured the middleweight championship by knocking out Jarrod Fletcher... Jacobs and Quillin fight for Brooklyn bragging rights

"A Born Teacher Returns"

By Allan Scotto (Photo © German Villasenor): On November 7th, 2015, Timothy “Desert Storm” Bradley did something that he hasn’t done since November 12th, 2011. He knocked someone out. But, not just anyone, he knocked out Brandon Rios, a rough and tumble fighter who had never been knocked out before! The loss was so devastating for Rios; he emotionally announced his retirement before he even left the ring. That is a very different story than what happened when Bradley... "A Born Teacher Returns"

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. Scores were 115-112 (twice) and 116-111. Maxboxing and Doghouseboxing tabbed Fury the winner by a 117-110 tally.... Fury upsets Klitschko in epic snooze fest

Underdog "Creed" scores a KO

By John J. Raspanti: When it was announced a few years ago that another "Rocky" film would be going into production, the groans from movie-goers could be heard from coast to coast. The cynicism was understandable. The "Rocky" franchise had officially ended on a positive note in 2006 with "Rocky Balboa"--a film that surprised critics by returning to its roots on the gritty streets of Philadelphia. Creator and star Sylvester Stallone gave the iconic character a great sendoff... Underdog "Creed" scores a KO

“Hollywood” Jimenez rebound shows his character

By John J. Raspanti: When Mike Jimenez was stopped by Jesse Hart on the undercard of the Floyd Mayweather-Manny Pacquiao bout in Las Vegas, NV last May, he could have done what a lot of fighters do, disappear. Losing was something Jimenez had never experienced. At the time, his fight with Hart was the most important of his career. The loss was painful. “It (losing) definitely hurt my pride a little bit, but that was it,” Jimenez told this writer via email. “It was a learning experience for “Hollywood” Jimenez rebound shows his character

Cotto vs. Canelo: The next chapter of an historic rivalry

By Nicholas Phillipowsy: In just a few days, we will perhaps be witnessing the biggest fight that can be made in a post Mayweather/Pacquiao era of boxing. Aside from the record breaking Mayweather/Pacquiao super fight, this bout will prove to be second to none. Even though it will be remembered in history as the second biggest fight of 2015, many would argue it as the most significant fight that can be made to determine the future landscape of boxing.

Could legs be the difference for Alvarez and Cotto on November 21?

By John J. Raspanti: There’s an old way of thinking that women weaken legs. No less an authority than Mickey Goldmill, the grouchy trainer of Rocky Balboa, espoused this thinking 38 years ago in the classic film Rocky. Surprisingly, Goldmill is not alone. Freddie Roach, whose fighter, Miguel Cotto, meets former champion Canelo Alvarez on November 21 at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, NV., basically agrees women can be a distraction...

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

That was one of the questions going into tonight’s battle between WBO welterweight champion Timothy Bradley and former world champion Brandon Rios. Bradley (33-1-1, 13 KOs) did a little bit of both--eventually stopping Rios (33-3-1, 23 KOs) in round nine at the Thomas @ Mack Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.

By John J.

The knockout victory was the 21st in a row for the 33-year-old Golovkin. Golovkin (34-0, 31 KOs) showed patience in the opening stanza.
