Sir Henry Cooper0002

By Jim Amato (Senior Boxing Writer)

He came from a fighting family and by the time his boxing career ended in 1971 he was the most beloved British boxer of all time  다운로드. Only once did he challenge for the world’s title but he dominated the British heavyweight scene for over fifteen years. His popularity soared even more after retirement and eventually the Queen of England knighted him  다운로드. Sir Henry Cooper was more than just a British fighter. He was a fine example of what British boxing is all about. 

Henry’s professional career started in September of 1954 and he proceeded to win his first nine fights including an eight round points win over Joe Bygraves  다운로드. In Henry’s tenth bout he lost the first of many bouts due to an eye cut to Uber Bacilleri. He would later avenge that loss. The roller coaster career of Henry Cooper had now begun. He would drop a ten rounder to Joe Erskine and stop Brian London in one round only to lose in five to Peter Bates. 1955 was a rough year for Henry as Bygraves kayoed him for the British Empire title. Future world champion Ingemar Johansson then bombed him out. Joe Erskine then outscored him for the British title. Henry began to turn things around late in 1958 with a stoppage over Dick Richardson and a point win over respected American Zora Folley. He finally won the British and Empire titles by decision over Brian London in 1959. He halted Gawie de Klerk in an Empire defense and defended both titles by a fifth round stoppage of Joe Erskine. In 1960 Henry scored important decision victories of Roy Harris and Alex Mitiff. He again defended his titles by a fifth round stoppage of Erskine in March of 1961. On December 5, 1961 Henry suffered a major setback when Folley kayoed him in the second round of their rematch.

Wilder vs. Parker / Joshua vs. Wallin … Heavyweight Bouts (12-23-23) From Saudi Arabia

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

Deontay Wilder took on Joseph Parker and Anthony Joshua was fighting Otto Wallin as they prepare for their own super fight in 2024 but then if any of these fighters lose, this would put a damper on that big money fight 다운로드.

For Wilder, this was not a gimme as he has fought only one fight since the Fury trilogy, a one round knockout of Robert Helenius whereas Parker maintained his activity with four fights in 2023.  Wilder has his issues with boxers, and Parker was the WBO champion before losing that over five years ago to Anthony Joshua. 

As for Joshua, he was on the top of the world and the king of the Heavyweights before he was knocked out by Anthony Ruiz.  Since then, he has lost twice to Oleksander Usyk before winning his last bout against Robert Helenius.  Wallin was a tough fighter who gave Tyson Fury a good fight 다운로드.

The first round between Wilder and Parker was a feeling out round with only real punches landed by Parker but in the second round Parker superior boxing skills started to show with a few body shots.  Through the third round, Parker connected on the more meaningful punch, and this continued into the fourth round as Parker became more aggressive with his offences as he stuck his jab in Wilder face and ended the round with a left hook 다운로드. After four rounds, it was 40-36 for Parker.

In the fifth round, Parker forced Wilder to retreat with effective jabs and good right hand and throughout the sixth round Wilder was looking for a one shot, something he had tendency to do when being outboxed.  Parker was the more accurate puncher as he lands a nice right in the middle of round and concludes the round with body shots  So far I have it an easy shut out for Parker 60-54 다운로드.

The seventh round wa like the previous rounds as Parker defense kept Wilder at bay and while Wilder is failed to connect with his right, but Parker landed a few rights of his own.  Now Wilder was behind  seven rounds to zero.  And the eighth round, Parker rolls from a Wilder right and he nailed with his own rights, plus combinations flurries 뿌리깊은 나무. One big right hurt Wilder left him stagger and the referee took a long look to see if it could be stopped.  It was getting late for Wilder as he had yet to take a round from Parker.  With four rounds left, it is 80-72 on my card.

The ninth round repeated the previous nine rounds as Parker  landed his right hand whereas Wilder couldn’t connect on his powerful round.  Wilder connected on only twenty-four punches compared to Parker sixty-three punches after nine rounds.

The tenth and eleventh round saw Parker continue his domination as he proved to the more accurate puncher and with one round left, it was 110-99. Parker was now one round away from winning this fight. Wilder tried to land big right hands but failed to land a punch of consequences and Parker won the fight easily as the judges had it 118-111, 118-110 and 120-108.  (I am assuming one judge had one round even, but I was hard pressed to reward even one round to Wilder).


The big money fight between Joshua and Wilder is now in jeopardy and Wilder time as a contender for the title may be coming close to an end.  Wilder showed all his weakness, his failure to adopt and his failure to improve his boxing skill to cover those times when the knockout doesn’t come showed up.  At 38, he looked old, and the ravages of the Fury fight may had their impact.  Wilder never landed more than six punches in all twelve rounds.  

Parker connected on 41 percent of his power shots and landed more than double of power shots and his jab was more effective setting up his power shots.

Tyson Fury “Split Decision” Winner Over Francis Ngannou … 10 Rounds / Non-Title Bout


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

Tyson Fury had his battle of the baddest against Francis Ngannou, former UFC champion who was doing his first boxing match at the age of thirty-seven 아이폰 백그라운드 다운로드. What should have been an easy match for Fury turned out to be battle of survival as he barely got by Ngannou and even hit the floor in the third round by a Ngannou left hook.  This fight was close on the Compubox data as Fury landed seventy-one punches to fifty-nine, but Ngannou landed more power shots 37-32.  Usually in these matchups, the boxer has the advantage since more Mixed Marital Arts are not allowed to kick or get their opponent to the ground.  So, this is hands versus hands and the boxer has more experienced with just using hands.  Ngannou has been at the top of the UFC heavyweight division, and he was taking on the baddest man in the boxing world. 


I had Fury winning the first two rounds as he landed more punches and even in the second round turned southpaw, to confuse his opponent.  In the third round, Ngannou stunned Fury with a left hook that sent boxing heavyweight champion to the canvas, and I had the third round as a the 10-8 round for Ngannou and after three rounds, it was 28-28 윈도우 7 32비트 다운로드. Fury acknowledges after the fight, “He’s a very awkward man and he’s a good puncher and I respect him a lot.” 

The fourth round was a pick em which I gave to Fury, but it could easily have gone to Ngannou but the next two rounds, Fury landed some good shots and looked like he might be getting back in control of the fight.  Near the end of the fifth round, Ngannou look tired.  After six rounds, I had it 58-55 but it could easily have been 57-56.  Ngannou had the better of the next two rounds as he landed some hard lefts and rights.  After eight rounds I had it 76-75 and remember the fourth round was tight so it could be the opposite in favor of Ngannou 맥용 포토샵 무료.

Jack Dempsey Museum, Manassa, Colorado / MEMORY

By David Martinez / Boxing Historian /

It was in August 1975, when traveling back to visit my relatives in various locations in the state of New Mexico, I ventured north for an unbelievable experience, a visit the birthplace of Jack Dempsey, Manassa, which is located in the southern part of Colorado, in the “San Luis” Valley 존 윅 3 다운로드.

Upon my arrival, I located a log cabin style house in the middle of town, that was actually moved to this city park location in July 1966, and was refurbished in honor of Jack Dempsey 윈도우 8.1 업데이트 수동 다운로드. The interior walls were lined with photos and mementos of Dempsey’s brilliant career.

The Curator there was so wonderfully nice and was amazed at my focus and interest, that he thinking I lived nearby, offered me a job there as a tour guide 다운로드. Then he did something that was truly amazing, removing the actual gloves from a display case that Dempsey wore in the Luis Angel Firpo fight (September 14, 1923) so I could wear them while posing for a picture 300 2 downloads.

Unfortunately, I had a misfortune happen regarding these photos 자기소개서 ppt 다운로드. In November 1983, while moving from my old house to my new house, it started to rain that day and the water got into the U-Haul trailer we

were towing and into my nicely framed photos. I cried and was so upset and disappointed beyond belief. The photo of me wearing those gloves was the one most damaged.

Zhang Stops Joyce / Round 3 Knockout

브레이킹 던 part1

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

Joe Joyce got his second chance at Zhilei Zhang and hoped that he could reverse his previous knock out defeat.   In their first match in April, Zhang dominated Joyce as he connected on 45 percent of his punches and Joyce simply couldn’t compete with Zhang power nor was, he accurate his punches 윈도우 10 rs2 다운로드.

The rematch started slowing as Joyce threw jabs and neither fighter did much and between the two, only five punches total landed, but the second round, Zhang did what he did the last time, landed accurate power shots as he landed 36 punches versus 12 punches for Joyce and most of those shots were power shots.  Joyce was stopped in the third round, and he lasted only half as long as the first fight 윈도우 10 무비 메이커 다운로드.

Joyce came in the fight 26 pounds heavier and if this was a strategy to add weight to be able to take Zhang power shots, it was a complete failure.  He didn’t add any strength, and this was the heaviest he ever fought.  Zhang was simply too strong for Joyce.  The punches show the story as Zhang connected on more than double the punches and 77 percent of those punches were power shots 오마이걸 비밀정원 다운로드.

Can Wilder Win The Heavyweight Title – AND – Can Eubank Jr. Revenge His Loss To Smith?

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

Can Deontay Wilder win the heavyweight championship 윈도우7 영문 언어팩 다운로드? The answer is yes but Wilder has fought but one round since his trilogy with Fury and that trilogy was a brutal affair for both men but in particular for Wilder who got the worse of it.   

It is true that he sent Fury down and nearly ended their first fight in the final round when Fury went down face first to the canvas, but Fury somehow got up and survived the knockdown and ended up with a draw.  Their third fight was an up and down affair as both men hit the canvas before Fury finally finished of Wilder in a brutal fight 그린 마일. His last opponent Helenius lasted one minute and that is all he has fought since his trilogy with Fury.  Fury is the wild card as he goes from retiring to trying to decide to fight Usyk or not, which is the fight everyone wants to see 다운로드.

As for Wilder, his options includes Anthony Joshua, Andy Ruiz and if he gets past one of them, Usyk is still there if Fury has yet to fight him. 

Joshua is a more skilled boxer with good power and as he showed against Helenius, he can box while having enough power to end a fight.  Until Helenius and after the first Ruiz fight in which he was stopped, Joshua was a more cautious fighter but against Helenius, he started to look like the pre-Andy Ruiz Joshua 다운로드.

Andy Ruiz is one of the toughest fighters who will take your best to try to knock you out.  Wilder’s power is legendary, and he could end the fight against either fighter with one shot.  In the case of Ruiz, it will be which fighter who has the most power, but Joshua’s boxing skills will give Wilder trouble just as Fury’s boxing skills gave Wilder trouble. 

Against Usyk, Wilder has his power, but Usyk is a slick boxer who will give Wilder plenty of trouble in avoiding that one big shot.  Right now, the latest discussion is that he will fight Joshua and with the right opponent holding the belt, he can regain a title.  If nothing else, Wilder is an exciting fighter who can end a fight with just one punch.

Usyk by “9th Round” Knockout

By Tom Donelson (BWAA) Member Boxing Writers of America

Boxing is a sport that differs from most since one punch can end a match despite who was winning.  George Foreman was so far behind Mike Moorer and no chance of winning a decision for his right hand saved the day.  In the tenth round, Mike Moorer was merely nine minutes of defending his championship but right hand by Foreman ended the fight. That is boxing 롱 리브 더 킹 목포 영웅.

In other sports, a bad call can determine a game, or it merely delays the inevitable.  View it this way.  Team one is dominating the game and winning by two touchdowns when a bad call deny Team two a touchdown.  Team two is now down by a touchdown but unless they can get one more touchdown, they will lose the game, bad call, and all 한국 영화 다운로드.

Danie Dubois was losing his championship bout with Olkesander Usyk and after the controversial knockout, he would be stopped but for a brief moment, Dubois landed a shot to midsection and Usyk went down.  The referee viewed it as a low blow and not a knockout.  This was a close call, and from first look, it looked low but on further examination, it could have been on the beltline as some have suggested but from my vantage point, I will say it was a low blow 다운로드. If this was counted as knockout, it would be victory for Dubois and the heavyweight championship division would have been shaken up. 

Usyk boxing skills carried him over the first four rounds and Dubois was down on my scorecard 4 rounds to zero before the fifth round came.  After the fifth round, Usyk went to back to boxing, and he took control of the fight.  Usyk ended the bout in the ninth round as he stopped Dubois with a right hand 다운로드. Dubois had been moment like in the seventh round, he appeared to have Usyk in trouble, but it proved a delusion as the champion landed combinations and piled on the pressure on Dubois. 

At the end of the eighth round, Usyk landed a double jab followed by a cross hook combination that forced Dubois to take a knee at the end of the round.  Usyk landed 10 power shots in the ninth before the fight was stopped 다운로드.

Usyk was winning the bout on my card but many of the rounds were close and while I had 7 to 1 in favor of Usyk going into the ninth round, most rounds were close, and Dubois put Up a good fight.  Usyk wants to fight Fury to unite all the championship belts, but this version of Usyk would not beat Fury or the Fury that defeated Wilder twice.

Joshua by Knockout over Helenius – AND – Navarrete by Decision over Valdez

스파이더 릴리 다운로드

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

Anthony Joshua fought Finnish fighter Robert Helenius whose last big fight was a one round knockout defeat at the hand of Deontay Wilder.  Joshua last fight was a decision victory against Jermine Franklin, and it was hardly impressive even though he won an easy decision, but it was like he was satisfied to win by a decision.  In this fight, he proved to be willing to finish his opponent.  Originally scheduled to face Dillian Whyte who flunk a pre drug chase and then step in Helenius, who had fought and defeated follow Finnish fighter Mika Mielonen in three rounds, so Helenius was ready and in shape. 

With the exception of the first round, Joshua out punched Helenius in every round and dominated much of the fight as he outpunched Helenius 74 punches to 48 punches and his jab was accurate as he landed his jab 35% of the fight.   Both fighters landed similar number of combinations and Joshua landed 18 power shots to 12 power shots for Helenius, so the biggest difference was Joshua jab that set up his other shots 다운로드.

Joshua’s victory keeps him in the discussion of a heavyweight champion and the big fight that people talk about is Wilder vs Joshua.  This would be interesting but for a few things, Wilder has only one fight, a one round knockout of Helenius since his last defeat at the hands of Fury.  Joshua has been active over the last few years and would have the advantage in the number of actual rounds fought.  A few years ago, I would have favored Wilder but now the advantage lies with Joshua who is a better boxer and been staying active 심해소녀 다운로드.
