DANIEL JACOBS VOWS TO DEFEAT GOLOVKIN

American professional boxer Daniel Jacobs has vowed to defeat Gennady Golovkin when the two go head to head in the world title unification fight next year.


The showdown between this two champions was announced by the Kazakh on his Twitter handle after both parties reached an agreement following prolonged negotiations. The match which would take place at Madison Square Garden in New York on March 18 promises a lot with the WBA ‘super’, WBC and IBF middleweight belts at stake.

Although Golovkin boast of an impressive record of 33 TKO’s in 36 wins, Jacob believes he can cause an upset having spotted some weaknesses in the undisputed Kazakh. When asked how he hopes to defeat Golvkin, Jacob said:

“I’m making sure I bring the best me to the table, because I see a lot of flaws in his game and I see me capitalizing.”

Jacob, who recently overcame his battle with cancer, has surprisingly gone on to win the WBA title and is confident he can continue this momentum with a major win over Golovkin. Continue reading →

Khan trails Marcos Maidana in fans’ poll

According to a public poll, Argentine boxer Marcos Maidana is the clear favorite to take on the Pound for Pound king Floyd Mayweather Jr. ahead of British boxer Amir Khan.

The Bolton based brawler has polled only 20 percent of the votes on Twitter after the world Light Middleweight champion asked his fans who they wanted to see him fight against on his profile, which is followed by 4.5 million users.

And the results show that the Argentine has polled a whopping 80 percent of the fans’ votes against Khan’s 20 percent to be the next challenger to face the undefeated Light Middleweight champion for a fight which is expected for the 3rd of May at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Amir Khan had been very confident about setting up a fight against the legendary American boxer this year as he tries to be the first boxer to snap his unbeaten streak but the results of the poll will make him sweat.

Negotiations about a fight are already underway between the two camps and have been so for quite some time. Mayweather Jr. has admitted to people close to him that he wants to fight the Briton and Khan has announced that he has already signed his part of the agreement for the fight in December.

Yet, despite putting pen to paper to the deal, Khan still faces a nervous wait as he hopes his dreams for this super fight are not dashed by the fans’ poll. The polling ends on the 9th of February and no announcement regarding the future will be made by Floyd till then.

Mayweather, who has 45 wins under his belt, has been slammed previously for handpicking opponents and if he chooses Amir Khan now against the fans’ wishes, he will be

Amir Khan keen on Mayweather Jr. fight

Arguably the biggest name in boxing at the moment could be heading to England and the fabled Wembley Stadium to take on one of Britain’s very own boxing legends.

It has been revealed by sources close to English boxer Amir Khan that he is planning a sensational showdown against the Pound for Pound boxing king Floyd Mayweather Jr. in May 2014. And Richard Schaefer, the chef of Golden Boy Promotions, the company that looks after the boxing affairs of the Bolton based brawler stated in a recent interview that the fight between The Money and Khan is a distinct possibility and admitted that the fight would be massive.

He mentioned that he has been told by Khan that he wants the fight badly and he went on to state that there is no reason why the fight couldn’t happen with the iconic Wembley Stadium providing a very viable venue for what would potentially be a super fight between two of the best fighters of their generation.

Schaefer admitted that whatever it takes, there will easily be 80,000 fans inside the stadium for the match and it would definitely be a huge fight to have and it is a fight that Amir Khan is very keen on. Mayweather Jr. takes on Mexican boxer Saul Alvarez this weekend at Las Vegas in Nevada and Khan is expected to fly into the United States to be at ring side for the match.

Amir Khan admitted that it is his dream to set up a fight with Floyd Mayweather Jr. and to have the fight at the Wembley Stadium would be absolutely huge for both his fans as well as the fans of Mayweather Jr. He stated that he has never ducked a challenge and this is one challenge he is looking very forward to.
