Jimmy Barry

By David Martinez / dmboxing.com

There is a boxer that nobody ever talks about these days. A boxer who seems to have been lost in the fog of time, but whom I rate as one of the finest to ever come out of Chicago! His name is Jimmy Barry. He was known as “Little Tiger” and this 5-feet-2 Irish kid was as good as they come.

Born on March 7, 1870 he started his professional boxing career in 1891, winning 27 straight without a loss, with 18 of those wins coming by knockout.  On December 5, 1893 he knocked out Jack Levy in 17 rounds to win the “100 pound Championship of America”.

Lomachenko Impressive – Stops Marriaga

By David Martinez / dmboxing.com

On Saturday night at the Micro Theater at LA Live, WBO super featherweight champion Vasyl Lomachenko (9-1 / 7 by KO) successfully defended his title in a one-sided seventh round stoppage over Miguel Marriaga (25-3 / 21 by KO) in a match shown live on ESPN.

Lomachenko came out in a stalking mode in the opening rounds with good movement and a right jab from his southpaw stance.

In round three Lomachenko dropped Marriaga with a straight left for the first knockdown in the fight.

Mikey Garcia vs. Adrien Broner RECAP … Victor Ortiz wins by KO!

By Tom Donelson (BWAA)

Author, Member Boxing Writers Association of America

Mikey Garcia dominated Adrien Broner last Saturday night with a technically sound performance.  Broner is the colorful fighter with the flashing combinations but it is Garcia who simply wins by being workmanlike. From the beginning and throughout the fight, Garcia jabbed his way inside Broner and then landed body shots that scored. From the very beginning, Garcia outworked and out hustled Broner.

Broner had his moment like the eighth round when he started with succession of combinations and over the last three rounds, he landed some big shots but he never landed with any consistency whereas Garcia would simply throw and land punches and as Garcia noted after fight, “I think that I controlled the fight in this early rounds and I kept the activity up … Broner is a great fighter and he has great skills but I was the superior fighter tonight.”

Garcia Dominates Broner

 

By David Martinez / dmboxing.com

WBC lightweight champion Mikey Garcia (37-0 / 30 by KO) moved up in weight to super lightweight and decisively beat Adrien Broner (33-3 / 24 by KO) in their super lightweight bout by a unanimous twelve round decision on Saturday night.

The fight was clearly controlled by Garcia from the start and he was text book throughout.  It seemed that when Broner would try to pick up the rhythm with his jab, Garcia would come back with solid exchanges.

Owen Moran

By David Martinez / dmboxing.com

When people ask me “who was the toughest and roughest boxer never to win a championship”, although I can think of many, my first response is Owen Moran.

Born in Birmingham, West Midlands, United Kingdom on October 4, 1884, he was one of England’s finest that fought as a flyweight, bantamweight, featherweight and lightweight. His nickname was “The Fearless”.
