Vitor Belfort 45 will box again when he faces Hasim Rahman Jnr 31 in Sheffield, England, on October 15.
Taylor-Serrano was a sensational fight and many had Serrano the winner, including one of the judges.Boxing's other undisputed Lightweight champion is calling for a rematch with Amanda Serrano in Ireland. Katie Taylor made the 6th successful defence of her undisputed crown last night when she soundly outpointed Karen Carabajal in the United Kingdom but it's in her native Ireland she would like to fight next and she says Serrano can help her fill the 80'000 seat stadium she has her heart set on.
That's all good but I wonder if I'm alone in wondering why this lady doesn't change divisions and look for new challenges rather than trying to bring Serrano up 2 weight classes again? No one wants to see a rematch at 35 in her backyard, that only has one outcome so no thank you. Every other top female fighter goes up and down the divisions as the competition in each class is limited but not KT, she's been tying up the belts at 35 for years now and everytime we get a high profile opponent the opponent has to come to 135, she could go down and fight Baumgardner for instance or move up and rematch the Caskiller, this refusal to budge isn't helping the GWOAT claims her fans like to make constantly
Guaranteed to be a poor spectacle for those gullible enough to pay for it but it is a license to print money for Pacquiao, just as it has been for Mayweather.Taking a look at December's boxing schedule I see Manny Pacquaio is fighting on December 11th in South Korea against some guy who's never boxed before. Looks like he's doing a Mayweather
It is only 6.30am on the 31st in Japan. So it likely hasn't happened yet.If anyone has a link to the Ioka vs Franco weigh in that took place earlier today I'd be grateful, can't find this anywhere even on the TR page
Draw.The fight is tonight local time and I heard Ioka missed weight which is why I was scrambling around for footage. I've since heard that the fight doesn't have a US broadcaster though, I assumed ESPN would show it but looks like it isn't to be. Hope I can rip it off in the morning at least
You only used to hear good things from fighters signed with Hearn. Now they are regularly leaving him while he is enabling drug cheats like Benn and Whyte.Matchroom Chairman Eddie Hearn has hinted that legal action could follow Joshua Buatsi's decision to leave and join Boxxer. Hearn says that his company had matching rights on Buatsi's contract and exercised it prior to his move but Buatsi moved on anyway. "Let's see what happens" was his repeated response when pressed as to whether or not they will pursue the fighter in court.
Hearn entered boxing telling everyone he would do things his way, honorably and not buy into boxing's pettiness. To his credit he succeeded in that for a short while. But since he caved in, he has become as bad as anyone in the game and more annoying than most because of his constant craving for the spotlight.Yeah I mean just a couple of months ago it was Lawrence Okolie sounding off about Hearn implying he was a slavemaster and then Hearn threatening legal action, now he's refusing to take that option off the table with Buatsi, a far cry from his days at the very top of his game.
Miller spoke to iFL after his fight on Saturday and told them that Hearn is a hypocrite citing his willingness to work with the two fighters you named but his refusal to ever work with the likes of himself again
