Joshua-Big Baby clash June 1 at MSG

It’s official. Unified heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua (22-0, 21 KOs) will defend his WBA Super, IBF, and WBO world titles against Jarrell “Big Baby” Miller (23-0-1, 20 KOs) in his long-awaited U.S. debut at the iconic Madison Square Garden in New York on June 1, live on Sky Sports Box Office in the UK and DAZN in the U.S.

Anthony Joshua: “The time has come to head across the Atlantic and defend my heavyweight titles in the USA. I am looking forward to taking on another challenge with a good boxer and a brilliant talker, it will be an exciting fight, I will leave nothing to chance and plan on dismantling Miller in style to make my mark.”

Jarrell Miller: “AJ is making a huge mistake coming over here to fight me in my own backyard. He wants to announce himself on the American stage but all he’s doing is delivering me those belts by hand. Its dog eat dog in the ring and this dog has got a bigger bite, he’ll be leaving New York empty-handed. This is the fight that I’ve been chasing all my life and on June 1 I’m going to achieve the thing I was born to do and win the heavyweight championship of the world. That punk AJ is standing in the way of my dreams and on June 1 he’s getting run the hell over!”

The World Boxing Association Championships Committee has ratified Saul “Canelo” Alvarez as the WBA’s middleweight and super middleweight champion.

I will continue that momentum in this fight.”

Andrew Cancio: “I feel great now. I feel like I’m a different fighter than the one who fought JoJo Diaz. This is a big deal. This is for a world title.

Ex-champ George Groves retires

Former WBA super middleweight champion George Groves (28-4, 20 KOs) has announced his retirement from boxing on his Facebook page. In his final fight, the 30-year-old Groves was stopped by Callum Smith in the World Boxing Super Series final.

George Groves Statement: “To my friends, family, and all of the people who have supported me throughout my career.

“After taking a little time to reflect on the recent events in my career, I have decided that it is time for me to retire as a professional fighter. In 2017, I boxed in front of a home crowd in Sheffield and became the WBA super middleweight world champion. After four attempts I had finally fulfilled my childhood dream, and the experience was as great as I had always imagined it would be. It was without doubt the best moment of my career.

“Some of you might think it odd that I’m choosing this time to retire. I’m still young, still fit and healthy, and there are still some big fights out there for me. But it’s for these reasons that I am choosing to retire now. I have a young family at home; it’s time to spend some of my better days with them. I don’t want there to be a time where I’m “too old” to box on, or where an injury retires me in or out of the ring. Over the years I have seen and sadly known the dangers of the sport, and I want to respectfully bow out while I’m at the top of my game. I’ve learned that doesn’t always mean coming off the back of a win. I’ve boxed at the highest level, all over the world, I’ve been a champion, and I’ll be leaving the sport (relatively!) intact. Continue reading “Ex-champ George Groves retires”

It was “rock’em sock’em robots” on Saturday night at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas, as WBA featherweight champion Jesus Rojas (26-3-2, 19 KOs) and unbeaten contender Xu Can (11-0, 1 KO) waged war for twelve rounds. When the dust cleared, it was Xu who dethroned Rojas by surprisingly wide scores of 118-110, 117-111, 116-112. The fight was a slugfest that seemed much closer than that.

Pacquiao dominates Broner, still WBA welter champ

By David Robinett at ringside

Marching on in defiance of Father Time, the incomparable Manny Pacquiao cruised to a convincing unanimous decision victory over four-division champion Adrien Broner (33-4-1, 24 KOs), retaining his WBA welterweight belt via scores of 116-112, 116-112, and 117-111 on Saturday night at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
Pacwins
The 40-year old Pacquiao (61-7-2, 39 KOs), boxing’s only eight-division champion, took a few rounds to figure out “The Problem,” but once he did it was a one-sided domination, partly due to Senator Pacquiao’s still formidable skills, and partly due, as is often the case, to Broner’s lack of offensive urgency.
