    • Didn't anyone watch that Harry Simon Jr fight posted in the video forum? Horrible stoppage by the ref.


      • Ryan Garcia won't fight on Saturday's undercard after his opponent gets arrested

        Touted boxing prospect Ryan Garcia (18-0, 15 KOs) from Victorville stepped on the scales Friday afternoon ahead of his clash against Avery Sparrow on Saturday night in Carson, but his opponent was nowhere to be found.

        I just want to know where [Sparrow] is at. He talked a lot, and I don't see him here, Garcia said shortly after he successfully made the 135-pound weight limit. I just wanted this fight. Somebody call him. Somebody ring him up. Let's fight. Let's get it on.

        Sparrow was not in the building and nowhere ready to fight because he was arrested Friday afternoon by U.S. Marshals hours before their Mexican Independence Day weekend clash at Dignity Health Sports Park.

        Sparrow, from Philadelphia, had a warrant out for his arrest stemming from an April domestic dispute in which he allegedly brandished a firearm after a woman threw his clothes out of a window.

        Sparrow was not aware that he was in legal trouble until he landed in Los Angeles on Tuesday for his fight. According to Sparrow's Philadelphia-based promoter Russel Peltz, a warrant was never served to Sparrow back home because he was not listed living under any address.

        • Katie Taylor vs Christina Linardatou headline a show in Manchester on Nov 2nd. Linardatou will defend her WBO 140lb strap but her manager Brian Cohen during today's press conference (perhaps having seen Chisora snap a couple of weeks back) voiced his dissatisfaction at the fact that Hearn wouldn't allow the champion a rematch clause in the contract but then successfully insisted on one for the challenger. Hearn didn't deny this but instead tried to suggest that if Team Linardatou are confident in themselves then it shouldn't make a difference. Cohen then retored "Don't be cute with me I'm not the one" as if ready to step outside and settle the issue lol.

          If anyone sees a YT interview with Cohen PLEASE let me know

          Boxing is a horrible business sometimes, what kind of nonsense is this where the challenger is bullying the champion like this. Making her come to your country, drop the rematch clause, name second on the poster, take the smaller share of the money and give you a rematch clause if you lose, it doesn't sit right with me, especially as Taylor should be fighting Persoon, she shouldn't be fighting anyone else until that unfinished business is taken care of.


          • Just had the opportunity to watch the fight between Clay Collard and Raymond Guajardo and it was far more entertaining than I expected it to be. Guajardo's ring profile said that he dropped out of high school to pursue boxing, but I'm pretty sure Collard just took him back to school.


            • Help me out boys, did David Haye have a trainer in between Adam Booth and Shane McGuigan and if he did who was it/were they?
