WBA heavyweight champion David Haye (25-1, 23 KOs) scored a third round TKO over 39-year-old former Olympic gold medalist Audley Harrison (27-5, 20 KOs) on Saturday night at the M.E.N. Arena in Manchester, England. Little action in round one brought booing from the crowd. Haye was a bit more aggressive in round two, while Harrison was again very passive. Haye finally opened up in round three and floored Audley with a barrage of punches. Harrison beat the count, but referee Luis Pabon stopped it moments later after more punishment from Haye. Time was 1:53.
After the fight, Haye stated that he could have knocked out Harrison at any time but waited until round three because his friends had made bets on him winning via third round KO. He also guaranteed that he would fight one of the the Klitschkos in 2011. (more…)

While David Devon “The Hayemaker” Haye, Audley Harrison, Ricardo “Maestrito” Cordoba and Guillermo Rigondeaux, will today without any doubt mark part of boxing history, it is impossible not to be hyped by the great Pacquiao v. Margarito bout in Arlington, Texas. Truth is boxing needs big events and this welterweight clash is a classic with no exemption. The WBA might not be involved, but my boxing heart just desires the best man win tonight at Cowboy Stadium.
But let’s now concentrate on the WBA championship bouts. (more…)

At the Commonwealth Center in Calgary, Alberta, Jesus “El Martillo” Gonzales improved his record to 25-1 with 14 KOs stopping the usually durable Jason Naugler at the end of the second round. After a slow openning frame, Gonzales openned up throwing punches with a barrage to start the second and never let up. It seemed as if he couldnt miss his Maritime target, virtually hitting him at will. Naugler (18-14, 11 KOs) valiantly tried to return fire but missed far more than he landed. Near the end of the round, Gonzales landed heavy hooks to the body causing Naugler to return to his corner at the end of the round favoring the right side of this body. Citing a rib injury, Naugler’s corner signalled their surrender giving the Phoenix, Arizona southpaw the victory. (more…)

Representatives from the Texas Boxing Commission (TBC) will be on hand to monitor the wrapping of hands of Manny Pacquiao and Antonio Margarito inside their respective dressing rooms Saturday night at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
Pacquiao adviser Mike Koncz said on Friday that the gloves and handwraps of the two fighters will be taken by the TBC shortly after their scheduled 12-round world super-welterweight title match. Aside from the presence of the TBC officials, representatives from Pacquiao and Margarito will be on hand when the wrapping of the hands starts.
This was decided upon owing to the handwraps controversy Margarito was involved in two years ago going into the fight with Shane Mosley. It was later discovered that Margarito’s wraps were loaded and he eventually was suspended for more than a year by the state of California.
In one of the most pivotal middleweight bouts of 2010, 185lbs contenders Nate ‘The Great’ Marquardt and Yushin Okami collide in Oberhausen, Germany, on November 13 to decide the division’s next number one contender.

Popular Southern California junior welterweight Jose “Josesito” Lopez stopped Sergio Rivera in round three of a scheduled 8 round welterweight contest on Friday night at the Doubletree Hotel in Ontario, California. It was a tactical fight for the first couple rounds before Lopez opened up in the third round. Once Lopez let his hands fly, Rivera didn’t really seem to want to be there. A sweeping right cross from Lopez dropped Rivera for a count of 9. Rivera got up but took a knee once the assault continued and chose to watch the referee count him out rather than fight onward. By way of a TKO victory at 2:58 of the third round, Lopez improves to 28-3 (16KO) while Rivera falls to 25-6-2 (16KO). (more…)

It is probably a more intriguing match than Pacquiao vs. Margarito, the main event in Arlingtom tomorrow night. It opposes two talented boxers in a real toss-up battle. One battler hails from Panama, a former world champion with over 41 bouts. The other is from Cuba, a two time Olympic champion and amateur legend but with only six pro fights. Both are southpaws. Both are conscious that their clash will very likely determine the rest of their career. A loss here in Arlington is simply devastating. We are referring, of course, to the intriguing matchup between Ricardo Cordoba (37-2-2, 23 KOs) of Panama and Guillermo Rigondeaux (6-0, 5 KOs) of Cuba. (more…)
