Boxing

Boxing is a combat sport in which two people, usually wearing protective gloves, throw punches at each other for a predetermined set of time in a boxing ring. Amateur boxing is both an Olympic and Commonwealth Games sport and is a common fixture in most international games—it also has its own World Championships. Boxing is supervised by a referee over a series of one- to three-minute intervals called rounds.

    Dilian Whyte 'risking his chance' for an Anthony Joshua rematch

    Derek Chisora has warned Dillian Whyte that he may be throwing away his chance for a rematch with Anthony Joshua by fighting him. The British heavyweights will come together in the ring for a rematch on December 22. Whyte claimed a contentious split-decision win in a 12-round battle in their first meeting in 2016. Whoever wins the fight will likely be the next opponent of Anthony Joshua, but Chisora says Whyte has already done enough to seal what would be a multi-million bout with the darling of heavyweight boxing.  As a result, Chisora sees their own clash as an unnecessary risk from Whyte, whose opportunity to have a rematch with Joshua will be almost certainly gone for good should he lose.

    Fourth round: In the first 30 seconds, Hooker has landed two nice hands. Another huge right 15 seconds later for Hooker. He keeps getting hit with that, and Saucedo is going to be in trouble. Hooker is just a little bit quicker than Saucedo, and Hooker is making him pay. Forbes scores it for Hooker. Overall: Saucedo 38-37 Third round: Both guys are throwing their straight rights with abandon. It's going to land really hard for somebody soon and probably put somebody down. Nice 1-2 combo by Hooker with about 1:15 left. Better round for Hooker here. He's slowly getting himself back in the fight. Forbes scores it for Hooker. Overall: Saucedo 29-27 Second round: Good lord, Hooker threw more than

    Former world champion Sarita Devi, who defeated Sandra Brugger of Switzerland in women's 60kg category at the ongoing International Boxing Association (AIBA) Women's World Boxing Championship, said she would like to dedicate her victory to the people of Manipur.

The boxer also took the opportunity to thank the government for the support and facilities being provided. "When I started off, there was no funding. However, once I was recognised publicly,

    Shields stokes bad blood with Rankin, interest for fight

    Flint native Claressa Shields hears the criticism. She knows there are some who wished that she'd act more “ladylike.” She knows there are “people who believe that men should box but women shouldn't.” And she knows that on Saturday in Mulvane, Kansas, when she puts her WBA and IBF middleweight titles on the line at the Kansas Star Arena and Casino, challenger Hannah Rankin will want to shut her running mouth. But all of that heat, she told The Detroit News via phone Thursday, “just comes from how great” she is. “What I've been doing, people dream about doing,” Shields said. At 23, Shields (6-0, 2 KOs) is a two-time Olympic gold medalist. She's had four world title fights in six professional bouts

    Officer who discovered boxing as a kid to bring talent to the Guns 'N Hoses ring

    ST. LOUIS, MO - We're happy to report the 2018 Budweiser Guns 'N Hoses boxing event is sold out. The event is the premier fundraiser for BackStoppers. These amateur boxers use guns or hoses in their everyday jobs.  But in the ring police and firefighters use the exact same tools, speed, power, and precision. You better know what you're doing before you step into a boxing ring. Some people might even think it's not the place for females. One of the boxers on this year's card is a police officer whose boxing dreams began in middle school. Tawanna Simms joined the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department two years ago. “I joined the force to help my community and make a difference and be a role

    Chocolatito receives Yafai offer, envisions 2020 bantamweight move

    Roman Gonzalez is training hard for his December 8th battle with Pedro Guevara on HBO, but plans are already in motion for 2019 and beyond. “Chocolatito” tells ESPN Deportes that he's received an offer from WBA Super Flyweight Champion Kal Yafai, hinging on Gonzalez defeating Guevara and Yafai defeating Israel Gonzalez a week from Saturday. In addition, Gonzalez (47-2, 39 KO) revealed that while he intends to spend 2019 at super flyweight, potentially pursuing a trilogy fight with Srisaket Sor Rungvisai, he's looking at moving up to 118 pounds in 2020 in his pursuit of a fifth world title. I would prefer he did neither of those last two things. I am absolutely up for Gonzalez vs. Yafai (24-0,

    Rosales-Edwards joins Whyte-Chisora II

    The December 22nd pay-per-view headlined by Dillian Whyte-Dereck Chisora II has added a world title fight to the lineup, as Surrey's Charlie Edwards will challenge Nicaragua's Cristofer Rosales for the latter's WBC flyweight title. Rosales (28-3, 19 KO), who sports a pair of losses to Kal Yafai and Andrew Selby, has had a breakout 2018, starting with his upset knockout of Daigo Higa in April. He went on to stop Paddy Barnes four months later, extending his record to 5-0 (4 KO) since the Selby loss last year. Edwards (13-1, 6 KO) came up short in his first world title bid back in 2016, falling to Johnriel Casimero in 10. He was last seen stopping Anthony Nelson on June's Lewis Ritson-Paul Hyland
