Canelo Alvarez faces greatest challenge from Trout

Saul Alvarez has burned to fight Austin Trout ever since he sat ringside two years ago while Trout beat up his older brother and took his championship belt. That's why Canelo cast aside caution and put himself in the most daunting fight of his young boxing career. Alvarez (41-0-1, 30 KOs) will face Trout (26-0, 14 KOs) in a 154-pound title unification bout in San Antonio on...

Saul (“el Canelo”) Alvarez, WBC Light Middleweight Champion going after Austin Trout’s ...

In March of 2011, Alvarez (41-0, 30KO’s) defeated England’s Matthew Hatton (43-7, 17KO’s) by unanimous decision to win the vacant WBC Super Middleweight title.  Since then, he has defended his title five times and won four of those fights by knockout.  He is already a superstar in Mexico and on his way to becoming a superstar in boxing all around the world.  He is only 22...

Spoil Sports: Boxers That Made An Art Of Winning Ugly

Spoiling has stumbled back into fashion of late. After Cuban cephalopod Richard Abril put the dampeners on Ugandan Sharif Bogere within hours of England’s Matthew Hatton and South African Chris van Heerden hugging one another to professional death, fight fans were left to pine after a performance that might clear the airways. Unfortunately, the stink left over from Abril and co...

Hard Work: Chris van Heerden Outlands Matthew Hatton In Toe-To-Toe Maul

Johannesburg has inspired all manner of nicknames but there was only one word for the welterweight rumpus it hosted Saturday night: ugly. In a hard-fought but bitty main-event, at the Sandton Convention Centre, local fighter Chris “The Heat” van Heerden weathered a badly gashed right eye to outscore Mancunian Matthew “Magic Man” Hatton over 12 scruffy rounds. Scores read...

Matthew Hatton vs. Chris van Heerden in South Africa Saturday

It has been said that minor titles make you a champion the way winning the NBA D-League MVP makes you LeBron James. Matthew Hatton (43-6-2, 17 KOs) looks to become the LeBron of the hobo circuit Saturday night in South Africa against local favorite and IBO welterweight “champ” Chris van Heerden (18-1-1, 10 KOs).

Shoot ‘Em Up: Matthew Hatton Can Offer Only Target Practice For Kell Brook In A One-Sided Hiding

(Matthew Hatton takes a right from Kell Brook)It resembled a game of "Time Crisis" at Sheffield’s sold-out Motorpoint Arena on Saturday evening as Kell Brook played Matthew Hatton like he was a light gun arcade machine at the local multiplex rather than his opponent in a high stakes welterweight boxing match. Hatton, who did his very best, found himself blasted repeatedly...

British Beat: Kell Brook Ready To Cast His Spell Over Matthew Hatton

(from left: Kell Brook, Eddie Hearn and Matthew Hatton)If a promoter’s aim is to squeeze the mostest out of the leastest then Eddie Hearn, the prodigal son of Matchroom Sports’ bedrock, Barry, appears to have the chops to fill his old man’s shoes. Hearn lays on a weekend welterweight attraction from the Motorpoint Arena, Sheffield, which sees the city’s world title hope,...

British boxers look to avoid bottle woes

As Kell Brook announces his all-British clash with Matthew Hatton in March, the brash Sheffield puncher serves as a timely reminder of how easy it can be for impressionable, green-around-the-gills youngsters to fall, or be dragged, off the rails. Brook has had his share of brushes with the law and lapses of commitment. In 2010 he was convicted of assault after an altercation in...

Super Six? Junior middle’s got Super 16

Earlier this week, the esteemed editor in chief of The Boxing Tribune and I got into a bit of a discussion about whether Kermit Cintron (33-4-1, 28 KOs), who is scheduled to fight Saul Alvarez (38-0-1, 28 KOs) on Nov. 26 for El Canelo's WBC belt at 154 pounds, is the toughest test that Alvarez has yet faced. I argued that Cintron is just Matthew Hatton or Ryan Rhodes all over...
