2014 Boxing Upset of the Year

Biggest Upset in Boxing Award in 2014: Big upsets are an integral part of the fight game. If everything went to script all the time, then fights wouldn't have the same drama or appeal to them. You just never know what's going to happen with two fighters sharing a ring together, whether it's an unbeaten prospect learning the hard way he's not quite so good as he thought, a future...

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...

Evgeny Gradovich, Jayson Velez Slug Their Way To A Draw In High-Contact Bout

(Jayson Velez, left, Evgeny Gradovich, right; via @HBOBoxing on Twitter) Jayson Velez proved he belonged on the world stage against Evgeny Gradovich, who proved what he always proved, which is that fighting him is one of the most painful outings in boxing. But Gradovich probably deserved a decision win Saturday night on HBO rather than a split draw. Velez and Gradovich were fighting...

Fighters of the Week

  Luke Irwin: 1. Nicholas Walters: Is still the WBA featherweight champion and may have retired a legend with a TKO over Nonito Donaire. 2.

Damacio Page: In absolutely brutal fashion, decimated Brian Hall with a nasty KO to become the Legacy Flyweight Champion and almost certainly...

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...
