  • Boxing: Will Torch Be Passed to Joshua?

    By Charles Jay Yes, we know that Wladimir Klitschko is no longer a heavyweight champion, having lost that distinction in the ring to Tyson Fury. But his long reign left an indelible mark on the division, albeit in an era that it was not at its finest. And Anthony Joshua, the Olympic gold medalist, is […]

  • Ward vs. Kovalev – Now THIS is a Fight!

    By Charles Jay I don’t know enough about Sergey Kovalev as a human being, but I’m assuming he’s a swell guy. Andre Ward is a fighter who is potentially a very good representative of the sport of boxing, if only enough people out there in the general public knew more about him. He shows you […]

  • Cuadras Aims to Thwart Historic Gonzalez Bid

    By Charles Jay You may get a lot of opinions as to who the best fighter in the world is – “pound for pound” – but one fighter who has as strong a claim as anybody is perhaps unknown to the general public. His name is Roman “Chocolatito” Gonzalez, and he will be in action […]

  • Olympic Boxing – As Corrupt as They Want to Make It

    By Charles Jay The AIBA (International Boxing Association) has “reassigned” Karim Boudzidi, its executive director, to some other position, whatever that is going to be, because, as we and others had predicted, the judging at the Olympics has been, at best, abysmal, and at worst, outwardly corrupt. Judges have been literally dropped from the compeititon […]

  • Report: Boxing Results at Rio Games May Already Be “Pre-Arranged”

    By Charles Jay There are reports of corruption surrounding the boxing competition at the 2016 Olympics in Rio. So what else is new, when it comes to the practices of the International Boxing Association (AIBA), which governs the sport at these Olympic Games and in all meaningful competitions on the world level? It seems as […]

  • Crawford and Postol Unfiy 140-lb. Titles

    By Charles Jay Boxing fans may be a bit tired of having to turn to pay-per-view to watch the best of the game compete in the best bouts, but for some of them, Saturday night’s unification fight in Las Vegas between Terence Crawford and Viktor Postol might wind up being something that is well worth […]

  • Is Wilder in Tough with Arreola?

    By Charles Jay Is Deontay Wilder continuing to minimize risk against outmatched opposition, even though we have seen that he is capable of much better?

  • Porter Needs Inside Game vs. Thurman

    By Charles Jay One of the more anticipated matchups in the boxing world is in the welterweight division, and it’s set for the Big Apple and on the big tube, which naturally puts it right on a big stage. Keith Thurman is the WBA welterweight champion. Shawn Porter is the former IBF titleholder at 147 […]

  • Anthony Joshua – In Too Easy vs. Breazeale?

    By Charles Jay It is obvious that in a sport that could probably use a shot in the arm with Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather fading from the scene, it helps if boxing has a rather dynamic heavyweight champion. Those who are well-versed in the sport know it isn’t going to come out of next […]

  • Alvarez Brings Size Edge Into Bout with Khan

    By Charles Jay Many people out there are expecting that Canelo Alvarez‘s big test as a middleweight champion will come if and when he faces off against Gennady Golovkin.

    By Charles Jay As we wind down the hours until Saturday’s Manny Pacquiao-Timothy Bradley fight actually happens at the MGM Grand Garden in Las Vegas, there are certainly some people who are wondering “Why?” as in “Why should we buy this fight when they have fought twice already, and the reality is that Pacquiao has […]

  • Boxing Betting — CJ: Cotto vs. Alvarez – The Final Analysis

    Boxing is a funny thing – some of those people who are most critical of a guy like Floyd Mayweather are looking upon Saturday night’s encounter between Canelo Alvarez and Miguel Cotto as a “mega-fight,” despite the fact that both of them have been defeated by the unbeaten and quasi-retired “Money” man.

  • Boxing Betting — CJ: Can Mayweather Get Berto Out of There?

    By Charles Jay We are clearly in the latter stages of Floyd Mayweather‘s career.

  • The Brink : “To Your Health!”

    When has one not seen Floyd on the defensive.  Even with his superfight against Manny, Mayweather’s overly cautious style garners him wins, cash, but not fans.  Now this strategy seems to be employed with the selection of his “final” opponent.  Here who he is and why this selection has many putting the “Best Ever” on […]

    By Charles Jay From the very beginning, there seemed to be nothing right about the Floyd Mayweather-Manny Pacquiao promotion.

    By Charles Jay I have heard one complaint after another from boxing writers who are despondent that they have been “relegated” to the press room for Saturday night’s Floyd Mayweather-Manny Pacquiao fight, rather than receive seats in a press area or elsewhere inside the arena itself. In this room they are going to have to […]
