Kell Brook returns on July 28 London card

Former IBF welterweight champion Kell Brook will face Brandon Cook in a super welterweight title eliminator at The O2 in London as part of the undercard for the heavyweight blockbuster between Dillian Whyte and Joseph Parker on Saturday July 28.

Brook made his bow at super lightweight with a destructive second round win over Sergey Rabchenko in Sheffield in March – ‘The Special One’ has been called out by all the big-guns at 154lbs after crashing into the rankings with that win, and will arrow in on a World title crack if he can see off the dangerous Cook. The Canadian – who turns 32 today – will be desperate to hijack Brook’s dreams of landing another World title, and ‘Bad Boy’ Cook, rated number four with the WBO, nine in the WBA and 11 with the IBF, enters the fight on the wave of back-to-back early KO wins.

Flanagan Camp plans next move

Former WBO lightweight champion Terry Flanagan (33-1, 13 KOs) had his 33-fight unbeaten streak snapped on Saturday night in his home city of Manchester when he lost a split decision to Maurice Hooker for the super lightweight version of the WBO belt.

“It wasn’t an easy night for Terry,” says Flanagan’s manager Steve Wood. “Hooker had those really long arms, and height, and Terry wasn’t able to get to him easily. But, although we know he didn’t box to his best ability, he still managed to get a close, split decision, and I thought the 117-111 scores on both sides were way off.

David Haye Retires

David Haye: Full Statement:

Today (Tuesday, June 12, 2018) I announce my retirement from professional boxing. They say you can’t play boxing. Yet, as I write this retirement statement, and reflect on my time in the sport, I can’t find a better way to describe the ride.

Thanks to boxing, I have been able to live my unencumbered childhood dream; a dream my dad, Deron, facilitated the moment he took me to Fitzroy Lodge amateur boxing club as a nervous 10-year-old.

From the very start, my parents encouraged and supported me, and convinced me I could achieve anything I set out to do, so long as I gave my very best. This proved the catalyst to me believing I could always win in life, no matter the circumstances. It also led to me giving my heart and soul to boxing for 27 years.

It’s great to be back to finally give my fans here in Southern California a fight. Now that we are I get to give them a unification match and the biggest fight of my career to date…I got my fight on July 28, but there’s been a lot of talk about Lomachenko and me over the past year.

2018 IBHOF Inductions

By Boxing Bob Newman

The 2018 edition of the International Boxing Hall of Fame induction weekend came off without a hitch this weekend in Canastota, New York. The bucolic, unlikely home of the hall can often suffer the perils of unseasonable weather, no matter the time of year. Rain was forecast for Sunday’s induction ceremony. But if you haven’t heard what they say about the weather in these parts, “If you don’t like the weather, wait a few minutes, it’ll change!”

The boxing gods were looking down on the gathering of boxing’s elite and the sun also shined upon them as nary a drop of rain, not the cover of clouds shown all day long. As over a thousand fans of pugilism filled the grounds and took cover from the sun on the hall grounds, six living and three posthumous inductees were enshrined today.

By David Robinett

Following his impressive ninth-round stoppage victory over formerly unbeaten Jeff Horn, newly minted WBO welterweight champion Terence “Bud” Crawford and his promoter Bob Arum spoke at the post-fight press conference at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.

“About the second or third round I knew I was the stronger guy,” responded Crawford, when asked when he felt he was in control of the fight. “I knew his [Horn] punches couldn’t hurt me, I hit him with a right hook that really hurt him and I knew then it was just a matter of time.”

Crawford also explained that Horn did not offer any surprises in the ring. “He did everything we expected him to do. We knew how he was going to come. There’s only so much you can change when you fight one style and one style only, so we knew how the fight was going to go.” Continue reading “Arum: Crawford as good or better than Leonard”
