  1. R.I.P. to Earnie. Met him in 2019 at Canastota. He was actually one of the first fighters i met on my first trip up there. He was a gentle giant and very kind. Spoke to us for a bit, took pics and signed. He'll surely be missed.

  2. A stunning and controversial Deontay Wilder knockdown remains lost without a trace after a WBN investigation. The former WBC heavyweight champion got put down by the little-known Harry Sconiers in 2010. Golden Boy acknowledged the clash as Wilder’s “toughest test to date,” but the footage is nowhere to be found. For years now, World Boxing News has searched far and wide for the whereabouts of any video containing the incident.

  3. I remember watching Harold's early wins over Terrence Coffin and Otis Tisdale. Sconier's was well schooled and skilled but on the small side for a Heavyweight. Now Wilder's been beaten there is no real need to hide the footage. It must be kicking around somewhere on the web?

  4. Just heard about this fight. Talk about flying under the radar....... --------------------------------------------------- I'm gonna' mix up some Cuba Libres, and root for the old man. Ortiz's reflexes have probably slowed a bit, but his basic counterpunching style doesn't fade with age a much as most other styles. He's surely still very dangerous. - And other than hand speed, Andy is tailor-made for him, due to his short reach and average ring movement. Plus, I bet Andy is not taking this fight as seriously as he probably should, and will be a step or two off, whereas this figt is the entire world for Ortz. So: Ortiz by KO, probably late in the fight, when a frustrated Fat Andy starts throwing desperation bombs and walks into a Cuban counter from Hell.

  5. I'm with Boz. Credit to the old man, who was rooting for) he looked fantastic for 43 y-0, but most of his punches missed. I only gave him rounds 1, 10, and 12. - And even 10 was close. Ruiz played it safe, which was boring-but-smart, and he definitely was out-landing Ortiz IMO. Ortiz looked great in round 12, but why did he wait so long to come forward and pressure, when Andy clearly wasn't trying to win on the inside? He should have turned it on around round 9 or 10, and just gone for broke.

  6. --- Reported he passed today, September 1st, the day after his 78th birthday. God Bless, from Fearsome to Beloved in retirement, he was a one off kind of fighter, here clowning with Ali in a prefight presser. He BTFO Ali in one of the scariest beatings in boxing history, but that Ali sadly had a chin to beat all that lead to his early decline. [img]https://boxrec.com/wiki/images/f/fd/ShaversAli.jpg[/img]

  7. --- Weighin today, fire fight on Sunday of all days, sacrereligious Mon Dieu!!! *** Fat Andy weight prediction. He figured out in the Arreola fight him looking trim at the weighin ain't the same feeling good in the ring, so I say between 260-265. Embrace your inner Fatboy, Andy, and the fights will take care of themselves.

  8. - - Also KOed Jennings, something Wlad couldn't do to undefeated Jennings though by Ortiz, he had lost a lot of confidence. But Earnie had some big wins over Norton, Young, Ellis, and Bugner, and Harold Smith. Today he'd be a bigger star because of his willingness to fight all comers.

  9. At his funeral, as they lowered Ernie's casket slowly into its hole, the straps broke, sending his casket crashing to the bottom. The resultant shockwave knocked all 158 attendees to the ground. One final, mass TKO by the great Erne Shavers. Good one, Ernie ! OK, so I made it all up. But, you know, it coulda' happened ........

Now, who the best Ortiz scalp? Bryant Jennings? Really? How many x Ortiz be KOed? What I'm sayin' is don't bet granny's farm on it...👺

  12. Another time and place, the sport is far different now. Had so many 10-rounders before he got his shot. Gave Ali and Holmes all they could handle. How are guys like that regarded now? Probably not as highly as they should be. So much scrutiny these days such guys get laughed off. Guys who come up short at the highest but accomplish pretty much everything else. I'd say such guys get more respect in retrospect than during their careers. I'm thinking perhaps of a guy like Luis Ortiz - whose career isn't over of course. But if he never attains the title, he should be remembered for giving Wilder a strong challenge if nothing else. Respect to the high level contenders; wouldn't have great fights without em. RIP Earnie.

  15. To be honest, I thought Parker was going to win on points. Joyce impressed me, I think that's his best performance to date. He has definitely earned his shot at the world title.

  16. I think Parker is a talented guy with a really lousy trainer. What he does he does well, when he's motivated. (which is not every fight.) But a very limited offense, extremely lacking defense, a short reach, and only average power. Basically, he's "Derek from Down Unda' " Well, no. Chisora hits harder.

  17. Both men are at career high weights. so take that for whatever. A slower fight definitely favors Joyce, who's the clear favorite regardless. Parker will probably try to get inside early, eat a few of those slow-but-thudding Joyce punches, then retreat to as close to the bleacher seats as he can get. Both men will gas early, and it will be a boring fight with the inevitable Joyce KO late, when a desperate Parker tries one last time to swarm him. This fight has the potential to make Canelo-GGG III seems positively electrifying.

  19. - Cable, this may be a first, but I think you are on this. Been thinking the same, but keep in mind that I have the kind of physiology that I have proven as an advanced age male, I could gain 15% from my already in good shape bodyweight inside 3 months with a heavy lifting rotating schedule and a single portion of extra meat daily from normal. I never diet, but felt like this was the best way for my study. Thus I'm not inclined to jump on the everyone's doing it bandwagon without better info.

  22. Finally, I am back with the third part of this series! William Guthrie...if you mention this name to someone who follows boxing today, most likely you will get no response, a blank expression. Very few could tell you that this guy was actually a world champion in the 90's, briefly. Guthrie became a world champion mostly because of one factor: he was promoted by Don King, whose dirty games made IBF strip then-current champion Dariusz Michalczewski and then let Guthrie fight for it. However, even King could not keep Guthrie on the throne very long and he was then brutally dethroned by Reggie Johnson. This is the story of William Guthrie, another UNPOPULAR CHAMPION! Known as "KO King", Guthrie was born in St. Louis (not Philadelphia, as Boxrec incorrectly states) on 17 January 1967. He was the 1985 Golden Gloves middleweight champion as amateur. He stands 6'1 tall (185 cm) and has a reach of 74 inches (188 cm). Even as amateur, Guthrie was a part of the notorious St. Louis drugs scene and was kicked off the 1988 Olympic team for failing a drug test. He relocated to Palm Beach Gardens in Florida later on, as a pro. His first pro fight happened on 1 May 1989 and he won it by TKO 2. Guthrie soon showed himself as a hard hitter, thus earning the moniker "KO King". His first 9 fights didn't go past 3 rounds. On 8 November 1995, he won the IBF USBA title against Richard Frazier, by way of KO 4. Next year, he stopped the former contender Ramzi Hassan by TKO 6 and thus ended his career. In June 1997, after Dariusz Michalczewski had triumphed over Virgil Hill and thus won the WBA and IBF titles from him, IBF stated that the Polish champion had to fight their no.1 rated fighter, William Guthrie, within 90 days or he would be stripped. Michalczewski's promoted Klaus Peter Kohl then stated "Guthrie is Don King's man and we don't want to do any business with him." It was obvious King had pulled the strings and made IBF issue such a statement. This of course resulted in Michalczewski being stripped and IBF title declared vacant. Guthrie then got to fight for it against Darrin Allen, who was a former super middleweight and an unremarkable fighter. The fight was staged at Fantasy Springs Casino in Indio, CA, 19 July, and Guthrie easily stopped Allen by TKO 3 after knocking him down three times in the third round. He was now the champion and was considered a dangerous challenger to Roy Jones jr. However, before he could get that far, he fought the former middleweight world champion Reggie Johnson in his first defense, 2 February '98 at Mohegan Sun Casino in Uncasville. Johnson, shorter by 3 inches but a lot more clever, was ahead on all scorecards after 4 rounds, despite getting a point deducted for a low blow, when he nailed Guthrie with a tremendous right hook to the chin. Guthrie fell down unconscious and had to be taken out on a stretcher. So ended that fake glory. In his very next fight, 9 May '99, he faced Michael Nunn and was soundly dominated and stopped in 7 rounds by TKO, early in the 7th round that is. He continued fighting as a cruiser, but lost his only relevant fight to Ravea Springs by TKO 11, in a fight for the vacant WBO NABO title, 7 February '02. Guthrie continued fighting until 2007, but lost once more on points to Marlon Hayes and never fought a relevant fighter again. His final record is 35(4)-4-3. William Guthrie was a fighter who simply wasn't worthy of being a champion and the way he became that was by the dirty tricks of his promoter. However, his ill gotten gains were soon taken away from him and he was exposed as nothing but a puncher with very limited skills and also a rather weak chin, since Reggie Johnson was never known as a very hard hitter and this would be his only ko victory in a big fight at 175. His dishonest past with drugs also puts a dark cloud over Guthrie's name. In the end, even Don King could not save him. I hope you enjoyed my presentation.

  23. Yeah, Ivan Ditchko. It seems nobody wants to get in the ring with him. What a waste. ---------- ### SPOILERS: ### ### SPOILERS: ### As for Big Mak, he didn't look his best last night, but you have to give big props to Takam. man, that guy really came to fight! I think he took Mak by surprise, having so much energy and aggression (PED's, did you say?) - But by round 5, Mak seems to settle in to a decent defensive plan that negated most of Takam's attack. Still, wow, what a performance from the old man. He clearly won the final round. Makhmudov will no doubt learn a lot from this fight, which will serve him well as he steps up to the big boys. Also, and not fer nuthin' : I was right about fighting clean. Mak, amazingly, wasn't throwing any rabbit punches. I guarantee that (as with Hrgovic) this threw him off his game a bit. I think it was at the end of round 9, when Takam landed some good shots, that Big Mak reverted back to his reptilian self and threw one or two right to the back of Takam's head. - But the ref instantly gave him a warning for it. We need more refs like this. This new, clean Makhmudov is a fighter I can actually root for. Heck, he even seemed like a genuinely nice guy at the end of the fight, hugging and joking with Takam, etc. Luckily, I can still despise Hrgovic. Lol ......

  27. --- Wiki report verifying what I saw vs 400 lb Dustin Nichols in Protectionville, Mississippi save the KD was in the closing seconds and no footwork was shown. Deontay Wilder 10-0 (10 KOs) vs. Dustin Nichols 4-2 (4 KOs) Among those in attendance was former world champion Roy Jones Jr. Wilder appeared to be knocked down by a right hand in the opening minute of the fight, but the referee ruled it a slip. Bout Summary Referee, Keith Hughes, waved an end to the bout prior to the beginning of the 2nd Round due to a cut that had opened over Nichols' right eye. Early in the round, Wilder opened the cut with a combination of left jabs and hooks that set up his right-hand calling card. The blood trickled down Nichols face, and then Wilder went to work on the big man's nose, which was bloodied in the second minute.[

  36. A very capable and talented boxer-puncher, Perez won the WBC bantam title and the WBA super bantam title. His first reign was especially long and esteemed, as he took the title from the fabulous Miguel "Happy" Lora. He made 7 defenses of it. He later ventured to super featherweight, where he was much less successful. Perez still had a long career, spanning between 1984 and 2000. Here is the story of this forgotten champion. Known as "Jibaro (Skinny)" during his pro career, Perez was born in Tijuana, February 14 1967. His father left the family when Raul was 2 and this forced his mother to work multiple jobs in order to provide for their big family. As a child, Perez sold various things on the street and often got into fights, so his mother told his older brother Hugo to take him to a boxing gym. And so-a future champion was born. He first fought as amateur and won the Tijuana Golden Gloves. Then, a month after turning 17, he turned professional. His power showed as he stopped 13 of his first 14 opponents, all within 6 rounds. He ran his unbeaten record to 25-0 before losing for the first time against Rodolfo Ortega, on points on May 3 1986. He then won 15 more fights and had one no-contest, before fighting his first big fight against Wilfredo Vazquez, August 1 1988 in Inglewood. He outpointed the Puerto Rican future legend convincingly on all scorecards after 10 rounds. This victory gave him a crack at the WBC bantam title against Miguel "Happy" Lora, whom he fought October 29 same year, at Las Vegas Hilton. He defied all odds to win by UD against the 31-0 Colombian slickster Lora. As mentioned above, he made 7 successful defenses, most notably against Gaby Canizales (UD), Cardenio Ulloa (TKO8) and unbeaten Gerardo Martinez (TKO 9). He finally lost the title against Greg Richardson aka "The Flea", on points, February 25 1991 in Inglewood. Already in his next fight, he fought for the WBA super bantam title and won it by SD against Luis Mendoza, who was making his fifth defense, once again at Great Western Forum in Inglewood. He shockingly lost the title already in his first defense when he again faced Wilfredo Vazquez on March 27 1992 in Mexico City. He was stopped by a TKO 3 in front of his wife and daughter which were seated in front row, which he later regretted. He later said he did not train well enough for the fight. Only a year later, he fought as a super featherweight and for the WBC title against Genaro Hernandez, April 26 in Inglewood. However, the fight ended as a technical draw after only 28 seconds, due to accidental butt which created a bad cut on Perez's head. The two tall super featherweights (Perez is 5'10, Hernandez was 5'11) fought each other again on June 28 and this time Hernandez prevailed by a KO 8 after dominating most of the fight. It was clear Perez's best days were behind him, as he was also blown out in 1 round by Luisito Espinosa in 1995, in a non title fight. He retired after that fight, which was on October 9, but came back in 1998, first fighting as a lightweight, and won 11 fights before losing by TKO 8 to Hector Velazquez on August 18 2000 and finally retiring, aged 33. His record is 61 wins with 42 ko, 6 losses and 3 draws, with 1 no-contest. Raul Perez was a fighter who used his physical advantages and attributes well and had good boxing skills for a Mexican fighter with little amateur background. At bantamweight, he was also a pretty hard hitter. He stayed too short at super bantamweight, so we cannot tell about his power there. It was clear that by the time he became a super feather, which was a rather big step up (bypassing featherweight), he was not at his best anymore. However, losing to Genaro Hernandez is hardly a shame or to a formidable offensive fighter such as Luisito Espinosa. Today, Perez works at a sports complex in his hometown where he helps kids, restless kids like he himself was once, to find themselves. He also has a small boxing promotion company called "Jibaro Boxing Promotions". Perez almost doesn't qualify as "forgotten", as he enjoys enough popularity in Mexico, but in other parts of the world-not as much. I hope you enjoyed this presentation of Raul Perez, THE FORGOTTEN CHAMPION.

  38. I'm not sold on Fury. He beat a dreadfully protected champion in Deontay Wilder. I've never rated Wilder - his power is there but his accuracy and skills are terrible. Fury has fought no one with the skills of Usyk - it's different levels. Usyk will play with him, as Fury doesn't have real power, for his size. Fury's herky jerky style will look terrible against the Ukrainian, who will make him miss. Fury vs Whyte was poor, neither looked good. Whyte looked dreadful. Usyk is better than anyone Fury has faced. Klitschko was old and the fight was dreadful and lacked punches. Usyk will not let Fury settle into a rhythm and pick him off. It's a formality for Usyk. Usyk will outbox any boxer, he'll find it harder against brawlers, at Heavyweight.

  39. Ortiz was getting dropped by Charles Martin, in his last fight. Looked his age - slower than slow. His only win before that was a farce against Flores (who didn't want to know). Those two fights since the Wilder KO loss, in 2019. 'King Kong' got about 2 inches in height advantage. Ruiz will look to close the gap, his hands much faster. He could get nailed but, if, he's trained and hunts Ortiz, then he should have a lot of success. Can see Andy getting the stoppage in this one. Rumours of his training seem positive but we shall see. It should be the younger man's fight.

  41. I was on Ortiz from the time this fight was floated and haven't changed my mind. Ortiz is savvy enough of a fighter to handle anything Ruiz brings. Ruiz has got to get close to have a chance; Ortiz has the skills to make him pay. Plus I agree I think this fight means more to Ortiz than it does to Ruiz. We're getting some good fights matching top 10-15 contenders. An important win for whoever emerges from this one.

WBC are better promoters of their brand which not coincidentally happens to be a quite handsome traditional pairing of emerald green and gold. WBA is Shyte Brown and Mendoza has the personality and presence of an overcooked eggplant. Hmmmm, Shyte Brown vs Emerald Green and Gold now enhanced with Indigenous artwork...I'll let you do the math in that great beyond of your life.

  48. I think this is the most probable scenario. The dubious one has always been talented, but rather stiff and plodding. And not very good when backing up. Whyte's aggressive and sort of angular attack should be very effective, as long as Whyte shows up in excellent condition and can thus turn up the heat without any coasting. Given that this is a make-or-break fight for both men, I expect that to be the case.

  49. Fury, all night long. Aj just did reasonably well against Usyk, and Fury is several levels above AJ. I'll be surprised if Usyk even agrees to take the fight. Maybe he should go after the WBC Bridget-weight belt instead.
