Boxing's not dead but needs a hero or villain immediately

The statement “boxing is dead” is false. Like with many facets of life, we don’t like change unless the changing entity turns out exactly how we envisioned it. The previous generation admonishes the current one for “ruining” what was once good. As these newly self-appointed elders rain down their criticisms, they overlook the fact the same rebellious spirit that fostered...

Daniel Jacobs Makes Short Work Of Peter Quillin

The Battle for Brooklyn ended up looking more like the invasion of Grenada. Mild underdog Daniel Jacobs took out the top-ranked middleweight not named Gennady Golovkin Saturday night on Showtime.

Peter Quillin returns on September 12 against ridiculous opponent

Peter “Kid Chocolate” Quillin (31-0-1, 22 KOs) will return in a 12-round middleweight bout against Michael Zerafa (17-1, 9 KOs), a completely ridiculous fight especially considering that it’s a headline fight on network television.
