Gennady Golovkin, Roman Gonzalez, Nonito Donaire And The Rest Of The Week’s Boxing Schedule

Gennady Golovkin is back! The mere mention of the Kazakh knockout artist’s name used to send fans in paroxysms of joy, but it seems things are a bit more subdued this time around. There’s only so many times you can get excited for GGG vs Some Guy, I guess. Roman “Chocolatito” Gonzalez is the support act, which sweetens the deal a little bit, though. There’s some other lower...

Andre Ward clinches victory but not imagination

On Saturday night, for the 29th time in his professional career, Andre Ward took home a victory. Boxing fans got their first look at Ward as a light heavyweight, and while they saw him pitch a near shutout against a hungry undefeated Sullivan Barrera, the luster that usually follows Ward just wasn’t there.

The Drama Show Returns: Here’s Why Gennady Golovkin Is Guaranteed Money

The wait is nearly over. It feels like we haven’t seen Gennady Golovkin in ages. In reality, it’s only been 5 months, but because the Kazakhstani fighter known to the boxing world as GGG fights like a man possessed and fills his brawls with dramatic knockouts, his absence leaves a palpable void in the sport. In the time he’s been gone, one of the other most exciting fighters...

Gennady Golovkin vs. David Lemieux is a win for fans, finally

This should be the norm, shouldn’t it?  Murderous-punching middleweights Gennady Golovkin and David Lemieux will square off at Madison Square Garden Saturday night on HBO Pay-Per-View.  Hopefully, it’s the start of a round-robin style middleweight tournament that includes Canelo Alvarez and Miguel Cotto, who will fight each other about a month from now.
