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...

Boxing! It’s been round for a long time, so there are lots of good archival photos I can find to put on my weekly boxing schedules. This one comes from the Library of Congress: it shows French boxer Charles “Little Apache” Ledoux demonstrating the devastating “punch ’em and kick ’em in the shin at the same time” technique on Frank Fleming.

Robert Garcia expects Nonito Donaire to return to the ring in May

Nonito Donaire last stepped foot into a boxing ring in November of last year in a back and forth rematch with iron fisted Vic Darchinyan.
