“I thought I won the fight,” said Claggett. “I pushed the pace and hurt him twice. He also ran a few rounds. Not to discredit him, but the aggressor and effective puncher should win the rounds. I would love a rematch.” Continue reading “Ulysse beats Claggett for WBA gold 140lb title”

Undefeated heavyweight contender Adam Kownacki (19-0, 15 KOs) weighs in on the situation with his friend and sparring partner Jarrell “Big Baby” Miller.

This question has to be asked, although I understand that it’s not a comfortable one: what’s your take about this whole PED debacle of your longtime friend Jarrell Miller?

Tough one. I don’t want to say too much about it. We spoke the day after positive test information was released. He said he didn’t do it and I believed him. I have him the benefit of the doubt – and then there were other reports about positive tests. We haven’t talked since then. Continue reading “Kownacki talks Miller, PEDs & Polish Sausage”
