The Queensbury Rules:
I'm almost as excited by the future of sport (see the above video) as I am about the boxing that's on this week. Luckily, if there's one sport that will be spared in the Taser introduction revolution, it's boxing. Boxing is already super exciting and features lots of people suddenly falling over. But imagine the boon for less fortunate and exciting sports, like baseball. Anywho, let's get to this week's fights. Paul Williams and Tavoris Cloud are making their respective returns on Showtime on Saturday night after having been out of the ring for a while. Vitali Klitschko defends his heavyweight belt against fun but rather inexperienced Briton Dereck Chisora in Germany on the same day. Jorge Arce is fighting in Mexicali (he seems to fight every couple of hours) and there are Shobox and Friday Night Fights Cards. If you so choose, you could probably pass the entire 48 hour period from Friday night until Sunday doing nothing but watching boxing. Wouldn...
BEST OF MAXIM

On Saturday, Feb. 18, Dereck Chisora will be the heavy, heavy underdog in his bout with 6’7″ heavyweight bruiser Vitali Klitschko. During the official weigh-in for the big fight, Chisora foolishly smacked Klitschko. Hard. BBC Sport boxing reporter Mike Costello was there and he submitted this description of the chaotic events: “Somehow, Klitschko refrained [...]
The slap heard around the world!
The Vitali Klitschko vs. Dereck Chisora weigh-in was held on Friday afternoon. There are two stories of note about the Klitschko-Chisora weigh-ins. First is that Chisora basically weighs the same as the WBC heavyweight champion, and he's going to be a tough guy to move around in the ring. Second, things took an ugly turn after weeks of friendly...
WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko met with the media Thursday via conference call to discuss his upcoming title defense against Dereck Chisora.
Klitschko seemed eager for the fight and expected a great crowd on hand in Munich, where tickets are already hard to come by.
"The arena is sold out and everybody is excited to see the fight," he said.
While most fight...
Former WBA Light Heavyweight World Champion Gabriel "The Handsome Man" Campillo (21-3-1, 8 KOs) and his outstanding support team, landed in in Corpus Christi, Texas, at 4 pm yesterday, in advance of Campillo's challenge for unbeaten Tavoris Cloud's (24-0, 19 KOs) IBF championship at American Bank Center Arena this Saturday night.
The 12-round battle will...
Normally we’d pass right over this story because who the hell wants to spell Dereck Chisora and Vitali Klitschko in a blog post. So from here on out we’ll refer to Dereck as the Black Brit & Vitali as the Russian Honky. These two are facing off tomorrow night for the WBC Heavyweight belt and Black Brit decided to get in an early ***** slap while wearing that robbery rag...
This weekend undefeated light heavyweight champion Tavoris Cloud will step back into the ring and defend his title for a fourth time against former world champion Gabriel Campillo sharing the spotlight with Paul Williams. Williams will take on James Kirkland conqueror Nobuhiro Ishida as all four fighters will be showcased on Showtime this Saturday. We [...]
Tavoris Cloud is the American boxer, version: 2012
He's a world titlist, ranked among the top four of the light heavyweight division and, for the most part, is an utter mystery to all but the most devout of hardcore fans.
With no drawing power to speak of, he has no leverage in making big fights happen. So, despite a title reign that hits its three-year mark in August, it will...
Standing head-to-head for the customary 'stare-down,' challenger Dereck Chisora slapped WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko during the weigh-in for their title fight Saturday.
Ever heard the phrase “Never wake a sleeping bear”? Well, challenger Dereck Chisora may have done just that when he open hand slapped WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko (43-2-0, 40 KOs) Friday at the weigh-in for their fight scheduled for Feb. 18th: The picture above makes the slap look a bit staged, but in any regard I [...]
Be careful what you ask for. Chisora may be in for the beating of a lifetime.
