Katie Taylor dominates over Jasmine Clarkson in Brooklyn

Irish sensation Katie Taylor (6-0, 4 KOs) stopped Brooklynite Jasmine Clarkson (4-9) after three rounds of action in the unbeaten fighter’s U.S. debut. The Olympic Gold medalist was dominant from the outset, stalking her opponent around the ring and consistently trapping her in the corner. Taylor was effective with both hands and did most of her work to the head of Clarkson. After three rounds of damage, Clarkson’s corner stopped the bout and gave Taylor her first stateside win as a pro. “It was a fantastic experience being my first time competing here in the U.S,” said Taylor. “There were ...

Broner vs Garcia – Post Fight Recap

Before the fight Mikey Garcia stated, “I want my name mentioned with the best”. At the conclusion of my prediction, I stated that Adrien Broner is good, but Garcia is great and would show it. With his UD win over Broner, what Mikey Garcia showed is he’s greater than we thought. Moving up to the 140-pound weight division against Broner, who was undefeated at the weight, who was in the best shape of his career, and pre-fight stated he will let his hands to the talking, Mikey Garcia at the end of the 12th round bell gave the feeling we ...

On Saturday night, Scotsman Josh Taylor added to his Commonwealth title by defeating Ohara Davies in the 7th round via stoppage and claimed the WBC Silver Super – Lightweight title at the Braehead Arena in Glasgow.

Boxing suffers again – Pacquiao’s loss to Horn

In an action packed fight, boxing once again suffers a loss in the public eye with the Unanimous Decision win over Manny Pacquiao by Jeff Horn. Never mind the fact that Horn wasn’t docked points for his three headbutts, never mind the fact Horn’s face was a complete mess, never mind the fact that in the 9th RD the referee wanted to stop the fight, Horn was overall completely outclassed. Horn gave a great effort and did better than expected, however, at best I have him at three rounds. If the punch stats aren’t telling enough, (with Pacquiao Thrown/Landed 573/182 ...
