America finally has a boxing heavyweight we can get behind

(Credit: thesportsquotient.com) 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.

Review — “Bouts Of Mania: Ali, Frazier, Foreman, And An America On The Ropes”

It seems an eternity since the heavyweight division was relevant. As a teenager in the 1990s, I watched awestruck as Evander Holyfield, Riddick Bowe, Lennox Lewis and a couple of others temporarily loaned each other the title.

Top 5 strongest heavyweights in boxing history

Who Were the Strongest Heavyweight Boxers All-Time? Strength is an often misunderstood aspect of boxing, especially by the casual sports fan, because so many think strength = power. In truth, punching power is generated by sound technique more than sheer muscle, especially for concussive punchers. Only a few rely even partly on brute strength to generate bombs. Instead, physical...

George Foreman Wants Bernard Hopkins to Retire

Some irony and some truth to Big George’s words to Bernard Hopkins. Here is what he had to say to TMZ. “Leave while you can. When the curtain closes, you don’t want to be laying on your back in the middle of the ring.” When asked what he would say to Hopkins, Foreman told us, “Bernard, you looked great! Fantastic! Isn’t that the way you wanna go out? You looked unbeatable...

Boxing fans love the big KO puncher & the sport needs them too

Every boxing fan admires a certain aspect of a fight more than any other; whether it be the artistic beauty of watching a “pure” boxer in action or two warriors going toe to toe, but there is nothing more awe-inspiring than watching a hammer-fisted knockout specialist in all of their glory. It is a primal instinct to want to see brutality at its highest point and whether it is...
