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.

Ezzard Charles: A boxing life by William Dettloff

By John J. Raspanti: It’s sad to realize that one of the best fighters of the past century, Ezzard Charles, is mostly forgotten. Hollywood made movies about two of his opponents, one of whom he defeated. But Charles has never been the subject of a biography. Until now.

Buglioni chases his dream

By John J. Raspanti: With the odds heavily against him, Frank Buglioni will attempt to the wrest the WBA super middleweight championship from unbeaten Fedor Chudinov on September 26 at the SSE Arena, Wembley, London, England.

Badou Jack: World Champion

By John J. Raspanti (Photo © German Villasenor, MaxBoxing): There’s a belief held in the boxing world that once a fighter wins a world championship, pride takes over and performance changes. Most boxers start with the dream of winning a world championship, a dream that only they, and perhaps a trusted trainer, believe in. Their goal is always the same. To be a champion. Not many reach their goal.The going is hard and arduous. Only the special ones eventually make their way to the Badou Jack: World Champion

Jamie McDonnell wins debatable decision over Tamoki Kameda

By John J. Raspanti: Jamie McDonnell made the first defense of his WBA bantamweight title a successful one by winning a questionable 12-round unanimous decision over Tamoki Kameda at the American Bank Centre in Corpus Christi, TX. Sunday afternoon. All three judges had McDonnell winning comfortably by scores of 116-111, 115-112 and 117-110. The decision did not please the ringside patrons.

Dirrell returns with easy victory

By John J. Raspanti: Former WBC super-middleweight champion Anthony Dirrell (28-1-1, 22 KOs) pitched a 10-round shutout over veteran Marco Antonio Rubio (59-8, 51 KOs) at the American Bank Centre, in Corpus Christi, Tx. Sunday afternoon. All three judges had Dirrell winning by a 100-90 tally. The quicker Dirrell got off to a fast start in the opening stanza. He jabbed and landed a variety of strong punches to the body and head. Near the end of the round, Dirrell seemed to stun Rubio with three Dirrell returns with easy victory

McDonnell Cruises Past Kameda; Dirrell Wins Shut-Out Over Rubio

By Derek Bonnett: The first time Jamie McDonnell and Tomoki Kameda squared off four months ago, the two produced a frontrunner for 2015 Fight of the Year. Part of me hoped Kameda would take the second contest, just to forced a trilogy and the development of a meaningful rivalry at 118 pounds. Apparently, the Premiere Boxing Champion commentary team hoped for the thing. McDonnell Cruises Past Kameda; Dirrell Wins Shut-Out Over Rubio

A rare slice of Sunday boxing

By John J. Raspanti: A week before the NFL takes over Sundays with a slew of season-opening games, professional boxing will feature the return of former WBC super-middleweight champion Anthony Dirrell and a rematch between WBA bantamweight champion Jamie McDonnell and Tomoki Kameda. Michigan native Dirrell was last seen in the ring four months ago with a shocked look on his face. He’d lost his first professional fight to underdog Badou Jack, and relinquished his world title.

By John J. Raspanti: WBC junior featherweight champion Leo Santa Cruz (31-0-1, 17 KOs) proved that he belongs in the upper echelon of the featherweight division by winning an exciting 12-round majority decision over former three-division world champion Abner Mares (29-2, 15 KOs) at a raucous Staples Center in Los Angeles, Calif. Saturday night. Two judges scored the fight 117-111 for Santa Cruz, while the third saw a 114-114 draw.

Mares and Santa Cruz battle for LA bragging rights

By John J. Raspanti: They met seven years ago in where else, a boxing gym in Southern California. Both were local products. The two Mexican Americans spared roughly 30 rounds for the next few days. Abner Mares was 22 at the time, Leo Santa Cruz two years younger. Neither will say who had the advantage. When the sparing was over, Mares figured he’d likely fight Santa Cruz again someday in a real fight. “I’ve always thought that when you’re in the gym training with someone around...

Bute returns after long layoff to stop Di Luisa

By John J. Raspanti: After disposing of little-known Italian Andrea Di Luisa in the fourth round last Saturday night at the Bell Centre in Montreal, CN., former IBF super middleweight champion Lucian Bute shouted, “I’m back.” But is he? Bute, 35, hasn’t been the same fighter since being steamrolled by Carl Froch in May 2012. Froch not only beat the tar out of the transplanted Romanian, he took away his mojo. Immediately after the match, Bute talked rematch, but his words rung hollow, especially Bute returns after long layoff to stop Di Luisa

Boxing’s “Triangle” Between Golovkin, Kovalev and Ward

By Ken Hissner: There are not enough “super star” boxers in the game today. Now we have one of them in WBA super middleweight champion Andre “S.O.G.” Ward, 28-0, who stepped away from boxing for 19 months due to “promoter problems” coming back and “kinda” calling out people like Gennady “GGG” Golovkin, 33-0, WBA middleweight and WBC interim champion and probably the second best P4P boxer in the world today. He is on a 20 fight knockout streak... Boxing’s “Triangle” Between Golovkin, Kovalev and Ward

Unbeaten Regis “Rougarou” Prograis Wow’d Them in AC

By Ken Hissner: This writer was not familiar with unbeaten Houston super lightweight Regis “Rougarou” Prograis, 15-0 (12), when he entered the ring with a “werewolf” mask on at the Bally’s show in Atlantic City August 7th. But before the night was out the entire room was “wow’d” by his performance as was his unbeaten opponent Amos “Too Smooth” Cowart, 11-0-1, who came in with red spiked hair looking like a rooster!

Behind on the scorecards, Glowacki upsets Huck

By John J. Raspanti: Though undefeated, Krtsztof Glowacki (25-0, 16 KOs) was given little chance of upsetting defending WBO cruiserweight champion Marco Huck (38-3-1, 26 KOs) last Friday night at the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ. Things looked bleak for the challenger when he found himself on his back in round six, courtesy of a wide left hand. But Glowacki, a star in Poland but little known in the United States, was hardly finished. Five rounds later, Glowacki stopped Huck in round 11 to Behind on the scorecards, Glowacki upsets Huck

How good is heavyweight prospect Parker?

By John J. Raspanti: New Zealand heavyweight Joseph Parker began perfecting his world class jab before he hit kindergarten. At the age of 3, he was popping his tiny knuckles into the palm of his father Dempsey, who just happened to be named after legendary heavyweight champion Jack Dempsey. “I don’t remember a time when boxing was not a part of our family life,” Parker told Anson Wainwright of ringtv, “My father Dempsey had always loved boxing and we would always watch the boxing fights on...

Garcia remains undefeated by stopping Malignaggi in round nine

By John J. Raspanti: Light welterweight champion Danny Garcia, fighting as a welterweight for the first time in his career, stopped game Paulie Malignaggi in round nine at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York Saturday night. In round one it was obvious that Garcia (31-0, 18 KOs) was the stronger fighter. He kept Malignaggi (33-7, 7 KOs) on the end of his jab--and also landed two pretty good right hands. Malignaggi did some good work in round two. He connected with a few light, but scoring Garcia remains undefeated by stopping Malignaggi in round nine

Britain’s brightest? What’s next for Amir Khan

Amir Khan is one of Britain’s brightest boxing stars who has been the unfortunate victim of poor choices, politics and problems that have limited and hindered his rise to stardom. Following Floyd Mayweather’s victory over Manny Pacquiao in May 2015, Khan was touted as a potential challenger for Mayweather. As of yet, however, the fight hasn’t materialised. So what is the fate of the 31-3 welterweight? Britain’s brightest? What’s next for Amir Khan

Malignaggi will need some magic to defeat Garcia

By John J. Raspanti: At this point in his life, 34-year-old Paulie “Magic Man” Malignaggi might be better known as a ringside commentator instead of a two-division world champion. Malignaggi’s lone fight last year was a painful one. He met former IBF welterweight champion Shawn Porter at the DC Armory in Washington, DC. Malignaggi can barely break an egg with his punches. He’s scored seven knockouts in his 39-fight career. His lack of punching power has hurt him. In spite of this disadvantage, M Malignaggi will need some magic to defeat Garcia

On the Move: MaxBoxing World Rankings 7-28-15

By Derek Bonnett: One of the most consistent aspects of professional boxing is erratic scoring. Not every bad scoring job yields a victory to the wrong fighter, but a controversial winner certainly gets boxing aficionados fired up to critique the work of a judge. This weekend, like so many, saw three judges in unison deliver a poor verdict to the wrong fighter, screwing over a rising prospect. It almost could have been predicted. Prior to his bout with Yuniesky Gonzalez, Jean Pascal was pretty On the Move: MaxBoxing World Rankings 7-28-15

In the end it made no difference, as Kovalev (28-0-1, 25 KOs) stopped Mohammedi (37-4, 23 KOs) in round three Saturday night at the Mandalay Bay Events... Kovalev demolishes Mohammedi in three rounds
