Golovkin Retires Brook To Remain Champ; Corner Throws In Towel

Gennady “GGG” Golovkin continued his winning ways by defeating IBF welterweight champion Kell Brook by stoppage in the fifth round at the 02 Arena in London. A bout that ended in nearly the same amount time it took to sell tickets to the raucous crowd in attendance featured Golovkin taking control from the onset. Going into full mode attack from the opening bell, Brook found himself in jeopardy against the ropes while GGG rained down punches. Recovering between rounds, Brook stepped up his offensive in round two to mount a comeback. During stretches off the round Brook connected with meaningful shots that threw Golovkin off kilter but ultimately lacked the power to keep the alphabet champion at…

Danny Garcia Defeats Paulie Malignaggi by 9th Rd TKO

BROOKLYN, NY – Saturday night in Brooklyn, undefeated Danny Garcia made his welterweight debut and kept his undefeated record intact by defeating Garcia former two time champion Paulie Malignaggi by TKO.

Prediction: Garcia vs Malignaggi + Photos/Weights

BROOKLYN, NY – Saturday night at the Barclays Center, Danny Garcia makes his welterweight debut against Brooklyn’s favorite son and former champion Paulie Malignaggi. A match-up widely shunned by the masses upon announcement may prove a stylistically interesting fight to watch…while it lasts. Betting odds (and skill set) favor Garcia but Malignaggi’s repeated jab could prove the necessary tool to prolong the fight longer than anyone expects. Always fighting with his heart on his sleeve, Malignaggi is expected to be a live dog but a history of brittle hands and minimal power will fail to keep Garcia at bay and likely close out the show early. That is unless the lethargic, less than energized Garcia of…
