Tyson Fury / Place In Boxing History


By Tom Donelson (BWAA) Author, Member Boxing Writers Association of America … Contributor to since 2008

Tyson Fury is the King of Heavyweight and one of those fighters we may learn to appreciate later.  The first time I saw him, Steve Cunningham, a former cruiserweight, knocked Fury down in the second round.  Eventually Fury stopped Cunningham and wore the smaller Cunningham down.  I was less than impressed that a cruiserweight could send him down even for a moment.  A more impressive moment in Fury career when in the twelfth round in his first fight in the Wilder trilogy hwidgen. Wilder connected with a vicious right that sent Fury sprawling in face first.  Wilder celebrated as if. he won the fight and most of us agreed. No one survived when they went face first but Fury got up and finished the fight to garner a draw.  He would go on to win the next two fights by stopping Wilder 다운로드.

At 6 foot 9 inches, Fury is a unique fighter for like any man his size, he can stop you with one punch, but he is light on his feet for he is a good boxer.  He also can adjust as he showed in the second Wilder fight as he forgo boxing Wilder to being a pressure fighter to take advantage of his size against the hard hitting Wilder. 

His most recent bout with Chisora showed Fury at his best.  He boxed and then he pounded.  When he fought Wladimir Klitschko, it represented a changing of the guard, but we didn’t know it at the time.  Klitschko had trouble getting his punches off and part of it was due to his age and part due to Fury ability to evade his punches.  Joshua would end the reign of Klitschko for good with a 11th round stoppage shortly afterward and for many of us, we viewed this as the beginning of the Joshua era as Fury spent three years battling drugs and personal demons 82년 김지영 다운로드.

When he came back, he was the dominant force in the Heavyweight division. After two tune up fights, he had his first match with Wilder which ended in a draw.  In between his trilogy, he defeated unbeaten fighters Otto Wallin and Tom Swartz and after the trilogy ended, he defeated two British fighters, Derek Chisora and Dillion Whyte.

I am truly blessed 다운로드. In my sixty plus years in boxing, I have obtained autographs of some of the greatest boxers who ever lived. A few to mention are, Sugar Ray Robinson, Muhammad Ali, Roberto Duran, Jack Dempsey, Max Baer, Ernie Terrell, Jerry Quarry, George Foreman, Larry Holmes, and Julio Cesar Chavez 다운로드.   

However, there are two autographs I have always wanted, but never acquired – Sonny Liston and Rocky Marciano. Well, one of those just came my way in a surprising fashion. 

While recently in Chicago, I had the pleasure of being introduced to Edward Bartt 다운로드. He is a little older than I am and attended many fights before my time. He is very knowledgeable on boxing from the 1940’s and 1950s. During this time Ed lived in Chicago and saw many of the great fighters, from that era, fight in person at the old Chicago Stadium and other venues around that once great fight town 다운로드.

Tyson Fury Stops Derek Chisora in Round 10 … Heavyweights


By Tom Donelson / Member Boxing Writers Association of America (BWAA)

Tyson Fury faced Derek Chisora in their third bout and the result was the same, an easy Fury victory as he outpunched Chisora by more than two to one margin and essentially gave a boxing lesson.  You could argue this was a sparring session and for Fury, it was a payday against a popular fighter but a fighter not in his class.

Chisora did little in this fight as he never landed a punch of significance against Fury, but Fury landed combinations after combinations 60초. In the second round, he landed a sharp right hand and each one hurt Chisora.  Chisora showed toughness in taking shots. In the sixth and seventh, he was allowing Chisora to stick around before returning to the pounding of the previous rounds 다운로드.

Earnie Shavers (R.I.P.)

By David Martinez /

With the recent passing of top rated heavyweight Earnie Shavers on September 1, 2022, the day after his 78th birthday, I am sharing an article that my good friend Jim Amato (R.I.P.) wrote on Shavers which was published on February 11, 2009 on 다운로드. Also included are a few personal photos of Shavers, and my autographed Sports Illustrated magazine covers; the S.I. articles regard his legendary championship fights with Muhammad Ali and Larry Holmes … may Mr 윈도우10 msdn 다운로드. Earnie Shavers rest peacefully in heaven with the Lord!

*** FLASHBACK *** By Jim Amato / Senior Boxing Writer

It was to be the last time the incomparable Muhammad Ali would ever successfully defend the heavyweight championship 맥북 엑셀 2010. It would be held in boxing’s most famous arena, Madison Square Garden. It would also feature Ohio’s most popular heavyweight of the last quarter century, Earnie Shavers 클래시로얄 무료 다운로드.

The “Acorn” as Ali had dubbed Shavers would be a prohibitive underdog. He was accorded a puncher’s chance at best against the aging but still crafty king of the heavyweights 채널 j 다운로드. What transpired the night of September 29, 1977 established Earnie as a legitimate contender and forecast the soon to be demise of “The Greatest”.

Andy Ruiz Jr. by Decision over Luis Ortiz

By Tom Donelson (BWAA) Member Boxing Writers Association of America

The real surprise of the Ruiz-Ortiz fight was that it went the distance Select2 download. At the age of the 43 years, Luis Ortiz still can box and had power to win a bout with one punch. Ruiz for a heavyweight has quick hands and power.

This bout was interesting since many rounds were close and without the three knockdowns, this fight could have been a majority draw according to official scorecard 피고인 1회 다운로드. (I had the fight 115-110 as Ruiz had a 10-7 second round as he sent Ortiz down twice and a 10-8 round in the seventh round.) 

The first round was more of a feeling process and what punches of note landed; Ortiz landed it 다운로드. Second round was different as Ruiz sent Ortiz down twice with quick right hands. Ruiz on my card won the next two rounds but they were close.

The fifth round and sixth round were devoid of heavy action, and you could have given them to Ortiz 다운로드. At the halfway mark I had the fight 57-55 for Ruiz, as the second round 10-7 was the reason for the difference.

The seventh-round saw Ruiz send Ortiz down for the third time and he also took the eighth round for a 77-72 lead

The ninth round was another one I gave to Ruiz as he landed the best punch, but it was close and other observers gave it to Ortiz 다운로드.

Oleksandr Usyk took a break from defending his country against the Russian Horde to defend his title against Anthony Joshua in a rematch 나스로. Their first fight saw Usyk outbox Joshua, and Joshua wanted to win back his titles and a possible match with fellow Briton Tyson Fury. –

While Joshua performed better, I had this fight 117-111 for Usyk but you could easily have this fight 115-113 or 116-112 with several of the earlier rounds close and one judge found seven rounds for Joshua 파르페 쇼콜라 다운로드. The last four rounds showed the toughness of both men.

In the ninth round, Joshua landed twenty-eight punches and dominated the round, looking like he took the fight in hand 금영노래방. The tenth round saw Usyk landing thirty-nine punches as he took the fight back. Usyk clinched the fight as he dominated the eleventh and twelfth round 번아웃 파라다이스. Usyk landed seventy-nine punches to Joshua 29 over the final three rounds.

Usyk has three belts and Fury the other. They are the two best heavyweights in the world 한자 폰트 무료 다운로드. Fury Is a natural heavyweight who is light on his feet at 6’9” and Usyk was the cruiserweight champion and moved up to the heavyweight division. Both fighters are undefeated and approach the fight game differently. Fury is a boxer but if he needs to, he can go for knockout whereas Usyk is a fluid boxer. Fury who is rotating between retiring or wanting to fight. Somehow, a 150 million dollar pay day might be enough to get Fury attention for a unification bout.

James Figg

By David Martinez / Boxing Historian /

As I take you back in time, James Figg, in my estimation, was the first recognized heavyweight boxing champion and was the first to teach and promote boxing at a high level 자동차 주차 다운로드.

Born in 1695, in Thame, Oxfordshire, England, Figg was also an expert swordsman and fought with weapons including swords, quarterstaffs, and cudgels before attaining stardom in his bare knuckle championship boxing reign 다운로드.

By 1719, Figg defeated all challengers; and as those early years passed, he defeated top opponents Timothy Buck, Tom Stokes, Bill Flanders, and Chris Clarkson 다운로드. He also had a string of epic bouts with Edward Sutton, inclulding one in 1725 when Figg suffered his only career defeat.

Figg established a boxing academy in London which is now known as the Tottenham Court Road 다운로드. There he taught boxing skills and the combative techniques in using weapons.

Figg established his own amphitheatre in Oxford Road, a London arena which staged boxing matches 국문 이력서 양식. There he popularized sparring as public entertainment and also offered fencing exhibitions.

Figg also made public appearances at London’s Southwark Fair, Hyde Park, and other outdoor venues where he would take on all comers.

21st Century Heavyweights


By Tom Donelson / Member Boxing Writers Association of America (BWAA)

Tyson Fury easily beat Dillan Whyte as he ended the fight with a right-hand uppercut.  I look at the 21at century and while this may be heretic to many boxer historians but since 2000, we have seen three great heavyweights.  Wladimir and Vitali Klitschko dominated the division from 2004 to 2015 and Fury since 2015 has been the best heavyweight cython 다운로드.

When Fury defeated Wladimir Klitschko, it was assumed that Klitschko failure to get off punches was due to being 39 years old but seven years later Fury finished off Deontay Wilder in the conclusion of their trilogy, we found out that Fury was actually a good boxer and not easy to hit.  In his first fight with Wilder, Wilder had trouble connected but Wilder power nearly ended the fight with a shot in the twelfth round that would have ended any fight with any other heavyweight.  We found that Fury had a chin as he got up and earned a draw 윈도우 8.1 한글 언어 팩 다운로드. (Most boxing pundits and experts had Fury actually winning but I agreed with the draw based on the two knock downs by Wilder that created two 10-8 rounds.) 

Fury won the second fight easily simply dominating the fight from the opening rounds to TKO victory in seventh round before they concluded their trilogy with one of the better heavyweight fights as Fury put Wilder down in third round, tenth and in the eleventh-round while Wilder put Fury down twice in the fourth round and almost won the fight right there.  Fury came through with an eleventh-round stoppage.  His fight with Whyte was a typical Fury as he out boxed Whyte easily.  He connected more than double punches than Whyte and Whyte only connected on 17 percent of his shots.  He connected mostly air when attacking Fury and Fury was more accurate with his punches, in particular his power shots.  Fury greatness may depend upon cleaning out the rest of the division, but despite missing three years of his prime to personal problems, he is now the king of the heavyweight.
