WBC Heavyweight Hijinks: Bryant Jennings en route to title shot vs. Stiverne-Wilder winner

No true boxing fan holds any admiration for the alphabet soup organizations that control the title belts: the WBA, WBC, IBF, WBO, and others. I must admit I sometimes find their antics amusing, in the sense that they add the colors of shameless stupidity and corruption to the modern history of the sport. Past that very mixed statement, there is nothing positive to say about them...

Bermane Stiverne: I’m going to beat up Deontay Wilder, he’s not a threat

Long before Bermane "B. Ware" Stiverne (24-1, 21 KOs) knocked out Chris Arreola (35-4) this past May, Deontay "The Bronze Bomber" Wilder (31-0, 31 KOs) started talking smack about Stiverne and he hasn't let up as the impending showdown approaches later this year. Wilder is the mandatory No. 1 challenger for Stiverne's first defense. If the relatively untested...

America finally has a boxing heavyweight we can get behind

(Credit: I contend the reason many people believe boxing to be a dead sport (although that’s not even close to realistic), is because there has been a lack of legitimate American fighters in the heavyweight division. The division popularized by guys like Mike Tyson, Evander Holyfield, George Foreman, Larry Holmes, and Muhammad Ali has declined over the years...

WBC Orders Stiverne vs. Wilder; Klitschko A Distant Match

LOS ANGELES, CA - To the casual eye boxing’s heavyweight division gave the impression of being on life support over the last few years, to American’s at least. If you live overseas, specifically in the Ukraine, it’s all Klitschko all day and no reason to complain. Formerly the glamour division of boxing, the big boys have new life with the emergence of newly crowned champion...

What Everyone Is Getting Wrong About Deontay Wilder And The “Internet Troll”

This past weekend, two authentic heavyweight contenders (Bermane Stiverne and Chris Arreola) squared off on ESPN — a rare occurrence for the worldwide leader, which usually confines boxing to its sister network ESPN2. Yet the fight, a good one, was overshadowed by a farce in the same division, featuring Deontay Wilder — who is in line to face the winner of the ESPN fight, Stiverne...

The big fight of the weekend saw Haitian Bermane Stiverne take the vacant WBC heavyweight title in an exciting slugfest against Mexican-American Chris Arreola in Los Angeles.  The heavyweight division is gradually returning to life.  In the past couple of years we have been treated to all-out action classics like Povetkin-Huck, Perez-Abdusalamov and now this one.

Bermane Stiverne Stops Chris Arreola In A Jiggly Good Fight

The old adage is “as go the heavyweights, so goes boxing”. Well, if more heavyweight fights were as entertaining as Bermane Stiverne’s 6th round stoppage of Chris Arreola on ESPN, boxing might be more popular. Stiverne (24-1-1, 21 KO) was way behind on my card at the time of the stoppage. He was being outworked in every round and seemed a bit languid. When he did land, however...
