Middleweight Billy Lyell (38-8, 4 KOs) has arrived in Culiacan, Sinaloa, Mexico to try to spoil homecoming of local favorite Julio César Chávez Jr. (40-0-1, 30 KOs) on Saturday night. “I am aware that the entire audience that night will be rooting for him, but I’ve come mentally prepared. I know in the ring it will be just him and me,” stated Lyell. “I will ruin the party for Chavez.”

    For 18 years,® has delivered daily boxing news to fight fans around the globe. From the beginning, we have always kept Fightnews free to our readers and relied on advertiser support. Anyway, the Miami Herald, The Guardian, and Wikipedia among others have been using the “crowdfunding” revenue model, so we thought we’d test it too.

    Please consider helping out. You’re not obligated to, but even a $1 pledge would really help. And if we reach our goal, we plan to upgrade our server and maybe even nuke the ads altogether. Wouldn’t that be nice?
