Rocky Marciano to be played by Jeremy Renner in new biopic

Boxing movies typically make the best sports movies. This past year, we saw Jake Gyllenhaal in the subpar Southpaw and Michael B. Jordan reach stardom in the wonderful Creed in theaters. Yet Hollywood hasn’t produced that many great boxing movies portraying real-life fighters. Raging Bull (1980) told the Jake LaMotta story, The Fighter (2010) focused on Micky Ward and there are...

Mayweather beats Berto, claims he is still retiring

49-0. That is now Floyd Mayweather’s record after he beat Andre Berto in decisive fashion Saturday night at MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas.

Is the Andre Berto fight really it for Floyd Mayweather?

Will Saturday’s fight against Andre Berto really be Floyd Mayweather’s final match?

Floyd Mayweather-Andre Berto official; will be on Showtime PPV not CBS

Cesar Cuenca’s lofty unbeaten record & bizarre lack of knockouts 46-0, 2 stoppages

Undefeated No. 1 junior welterweight contender Cesar “El Distinto” Cuenca of Argentina is just three victories shy of tying Rocky Marciano’s hallowed 49-0 record — although it would be ludicrous to compare the two. For one thing, there couldn’t be a wider disparity in quality of competition or the meaning of the fights being fought. For another, at 46-0, Cuenca has somehow...

Throwback Thursday: Charley Norkus Victor In Eight Knockdown War With Danny Nardico

Even among boxing’s detractors, there is little doubt that the sport is unique in many ways. Beyond the inherent danger involved in voluntarily getting pasted, and beyond the one-on-one aspect of prizefighting that only a few mainstream sports enjoy, the fact that the result of a fight can never be certain no matter how far ahead one fighter may be is the boxing fan’s opium.Probing...

Floyd Mayweather will surpass Rocky Marciano’s legendary 49-0

Will it be 50-0 For Floyd Before He Hangs it Up? Floyd Mayweather Jr. will go on to surpass Rocky Marciano’s record of 49-0 and will retire undefeated. Only a robbery, or Mayweather himself, could possibly derail Mayweather from reaching this goal and retiring with a very special place in boxing history. The last boxer to sit on the precipice of this great achievement was Larry...
