Rankings updates: Andre Ward, Danny Garcia & Nicholas Walters all no longer divisional champions

We have an absolutely massive rankings update for you here. We’ve gone back and updated the top 10 divisional ranking in almost every division in the sport from 122 lbs on up. There’s a lot to sort through, especially after this weekend’s busy slate of action. We saw Shawn Porter score a very big win over Adrien Broner, and we also saw David Lemieux continue to assert his status...

Nicholas Walters, Felix Verdejo Win One-Sided, Yet Competitive, Decisions

Nicholas Walters and Felix Verdejo fought mystery opponents Saturday night on HBO, in that both were undefeated yet unproven. Both put up resistance, winning a round or two each, ultimately succumbing on the scorecards to more experienced and classier opposition. Verdejo was up first, and boy howdy did he get a dandy of a hummer from the HBO broadcast crew en route to his decision...

The Week’s Boxing Schedule, Featuring Erislandy Lara, Delvin Rodriguez And Nicholas Walters

In my time doing this weekly schedule (more than two years), I can’t recall a stretch where high level boxing has been on TV as consistently as it has in the last month. I use the term “high level” fairly loosely — if you look at this week’s fights, there are a lot of big name fighters in action, but few of them are in against stiff competition. Oh well, we’ll take what...

2014 Knockout of the Year

Knockout of the Year should live up to all the drama that a stirring knockout victory in boxing promises, the sort of thing that helps define careers, ends rivalries, and gets the crowd up onto their feet in their excitement. It should also be a true knockout, complete with count-out. Not a TKO, but a true KO. The problem is that true knockouts with counts aren't as common as they...

Why Floyd Mayweather is no longer our 154 lbs champion

Floyd Mayweather is undoubtedly a unique fighter. So unique, in fact, that here at ProBoxing-Fans.com we had him reigning over two divisions simultaneously, Welterweight and Junior Middleweight. However, that's no longer the case. Our 154 lbs. division championship has been vacated, creating a void in that division, and relegating Mayweather to single-division status just like everyone...

But Gradovich probably deserved a decision win Saturday night on HBO rather than a split draw. Velez and Gradovich were fighting...

Should Nonito Donaire fight on?

Nonito Donaire finished his fight with Nicholas Walters by crumpling face-first to the canvas. It was a jarring sight, especially given that it is strange enough to witness Donaire on the losing end via the scorecards. It left me wondering what 'The Filipino Flash' has left to fight for in this unflinching sport of ours. Donaire has won alphabet titles at many weights, from flyweight...
