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

Boxing just saw a big shock in the heavyweight division as Oleksandr Usyk upset Anthony Joshua by out boxing him on Saturday night at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London.  Usyk, in his third heavyweight fight since moving up from being a cruiserweight champion, fought a brilliant boxing match in out-dueling Joshua 다운로드.

Usyk landed two left hands that rocked Joshua’s head back and came forward but stayed mobile.  Joshua didn’t move as fluidly and spent the first round being cautious 파이널 판타지 13 다운로드.

During the second and the third rounds, Usyk stayed out of Joshua’s reach and landed with his left. Joshua landed a couple of rights but got rocked by a big shot from Usyk, the smaller man 다운로드.  Throughout the fourth round, Usyk appeared to dominate with his boxing skills but in the fifth round, Joshua nailed Usyk with a solid shot.

Through the first half, it was a technical fight which favored Uysk as he dictated the pace and both fighters kept their distance.  During the sixth round, fans roared when Joshua landed hard shots and it even appeared that Usyk was moving backwards as Joshua moved forward.  One of the Sky Sports pundits had the fight four rounds to two in favor of Usyk 다운로드.

Joshua was a fighter who had the confidence of a champion entering the seventh round.  He snapped a body shot with his left but got countered with a shot from Usyk that stunned him, but he recovered quickly.  Usyk was back in charge at end of the seventh round 다운로드.

Ruiz Jr. wins decision “unanimously” over Arreola (5-1-21)


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

Andy Ruiz may be the fourth best heavyweight or even the third if you believe he could be Deontay Wilder.  It was not that long ago he defeated Joshua for his heavyweight title before losing it in a rematch.   When Ruiz fought Joshua in his rematch, he weighed 285 pounds but for Chris Arreola, this was his last opportunity for a big event.  Having lost three shots for the heavyweight title, Arreola last bout was a loss in 2019, pre pandemic and at 40, he was the overwhelming underdog. 

Andy Ruiz does not have the svelte body, but he has some of the heavyweight fastest hands and at 31, he was at his peak compared to Chris Arreola.  There was a time that Arreola was the guy everyone thought could be the first Mexican American heavyweight but that was never to happen as he fell short, Ruiz did become the first Mexican-American to win the title.  Arreola has been a good fighter who never seem to be able to be part of the elites of the division 카툰워즈 1 ios 다운로드. Ruiz on the other hand, has been to the top and shown that he could compete with the elites as his first victory over Joshua showed when he stopped the British fighter.  Coming overweight in the rematch, Joshua out boxed Ruiz and used his reach to stay out of harm’s way of Ruiz.

Fight of the Century / 50th Anniversary

*** FLASHBACK *** this article has previously appeared twice on – dates: March 5, 2011 and March 14, 2016

By David Martinez / Boxing Historian /

As we have approached this week in boxing, something that will forever live in the history of the sport happened fifty years ago: Joe Frazier vs 다운로드. Muhammad Ali – the FIGHT OF THE CENTURY.

On March 8, 1971, the boxing world saw the most eagerly anticipated championship fight that I have ever been involved with in my many years in boxing 얼음요괴 이야기 다운로드.

The fight itself exceeded even its own promotional hype between two fighters unbeaten and having contrasting styles. They both had legitimate claims to the heavyweight title, Ali as lineal champion (31-0 / 25 by KO) and Frazier as the undisputed heavyweight champion (26-0 / 23 by KO) 다운로드. The guaranteed purses were 2.5 million dollars to each, then a record for a single prize fight.

I will always remember where I was on that Monday night, watching on closed circuit, at the historic Granada Theater, Santa Barbara, California 영인스님 천수경 mp3 다운로드.

The fight took place at Madison Square Garden, New York City, with a star studded audience. The ringside commentators were Don Dunphy, Archie Moore, Burt Lancaster, and my late friend Arthur Mercante served as the referee 건조스킨.

John L. Sullivan

By David Martinez / Boxing Historian /

Many people have asked me about former heavyweight champion John L 듀드 시뮬레이터 다운로드. Sullivan. They say that there’s no footage of him and wonder how we can rate his greatness. Of course the footage isn’t there, and this is why we have historians, books, records and, most importantly, have had people who lived in his era with their assessments 다운로드.

I have not personally spoken to anyone from his era which is the late nineteenth century, but the oldest person I have ever had contact with who actually comes close would be boxing historian Al Nelson 아기 상어 다운로드. He goes back to Bob Fitzsimmons, who beat James J. Corbett to win the heavyweight title, and Corbett was the one who beat Sullivan for that title 다운로드.

When I was in high school back in the sixties, I wrote a book report on Sullivan and wish I could find that article piece. Who knows where it is today after all these years 투투 벨 다운로드?

In that article I will never forget my opening sentence:  “John L. Sullivan is the first American boxing icon, and he was born in Roxbury, Massachusetts, on October 15, 1858.”

Sullivan’s fame in the boxing ring is remembered by many in boxing circles, even today a hundred and thirty years later.

Known as the “Boston Strong Boy”, Sullivan was as strong as they come, at 5’10” and weighing 190 pounds. In high school he excelled in baseball, boxing, and wrestling.

Because his mother wanted him to be a priest, he briefly attended Boston College. But from an early age, Sullivan showed a great proficiency with his fists.

There may have never been a more talent rich period in the heavyweight division then from 1968 to 1978. With Muhammad Ali (a.k.a. Cassius Clay) on the sidelines due to his draft case other big men emerged 다운로드. They would compete with each other on an almost equal basis for the next decade. Joe Frazier had risen to the top of the heap but the level below him would remain as mainstays in the ratings for years to come 행복한 나를 다운로드.

Jimmy Ellis, Jerry Quarry, Oscar Bonevena, Floyd Patterson, George Chuvalo and Henry Cooper would eventually give way to Ron Lyle, Joe Bugner, Ken Norton, Earnie Shavers and Jimmy Young 하이 네임 다운로드. All time great champions like George Foreman and Larry Holmes also made their mark and Ali re-emerged to reclaim his throne.

Lost among the giants of that time period was a fine heavyweight from Venezuela named Jose Luis Garcia visa32.dll.

Although Jose never challenged for the world championship he did meet three who did. He also met three world champions in a career that never seemed to reach its full potential.

Jose turned pro in his native country in 1968. He would go undefeated in his first nine bouts before losing a decision to future light heavyweight champion Vincente Rondon. Three fights later Jose was halted by tough Allen Thomas in his first U.S. appearance. The lean Garcia was beginning to grow into a full fledged heavyweight.

During this era there were also heavyweights who were not quite good enough to be ranked contenders but they were good enough to test boxers wanting to go to the next level 다운로드. George Scrap Iron Johnson comes to mind. Also rugged Leroy Caldwell. Out of New York was a boxer named Bob Stallings.

Tyson Fury Dominates Deontay Wilder – 7th Round Stoppage – WBC Heavyweight Championship Fight

By Tom Donelson / Author, Member of Boxing Writers Association of America (BWAA) … Contributor to since 2008 with outstanding input and expertise – Thank You 다운로드!

Tyson Fury fought the best fight of his life and adopted from his previous fight.  He simply was the aggressor and dominated from the opening bell jquery 멀티파일. There wasn’t a round that he didn’t lose, and he impose his will upon Wilder.

Wilder began throwing jabs in the first round to Fury’s middle to slow the bigger Fury and Wilder nailed Fury with a big right and nothing, Fury withstood the punch 다운로드. Fury lands his own combinations to end the round and force Wilder to cover up.

Wilder did land a good right that forced Fury to clinch and continues his jab to Fury’s body and missed with a big right but Fury counter with a one-two that forced Wilder to hold and as the bell rang ending the second round, Fury connected on another combinations. 

As the third round opened up, Fury steps up the pace and landed big right hands, and one of them sent Wilder to the canvas near the end of the round.  Wilder came off the canvas on unsteady legs and blood pouring from his mouth.  Fury took the fight to Wilder and while this had its risk, Fury own power made the gamble work in the third round 다운로드.

Wilder fell to the ground in the fourth round, but it was ruled a slip by the referee.  Wilder is barely able to slow the Fury assault and best that could be said, he survived 오토리 다운로드. In the fifth round, Fury sent Wilder down again by a ferocious body shot.  Fury lost a point for butting his head in a clinch but after the fifth round, it was obvious that Fury was the better fighter this evening, but the question remained, did Wilder have one big shot left to end the fight.

Preview Look: Upcoming Wilder vs. Fury 2 … Heavyweight Showdown

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

This Saturday, Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder is one of the few fights that is actually worth a PPV 드라마 시티헌터 다운로드. In a day in which PPV in both MMA and boxing, there are many fights that are undeserving.  

Today’s heavyweight group is actually full of some actually good fighters at the top of the heavyweight division 모바일 알약.  

Wilder is the Alabama masher, who can end a fight with one punch, something he showed against Luis Ortiz. In both Ortiz fight, he was behind on points, but he stopped Ortiz both times.  In their first fight, Ortiz even stunned Wilder and forced Wilder to actually survive.  

Against Fury, Wilder was consistently frustrated by Fury boxing skills.  Fury is an unusual fighter for even though he is 6’9”, he is a very good boxer who has good foot movement 영화 태풍 다운로드. Fury frustrated Wladimir Klitschko in their bout.  While many of us thought at the time, Klitschko age finally showed and certainly at the age of 40, there were times, he never seems to be able to pull the trigger.   While age played a factor in his loss, so did Fury boxing style which also frustrated Wilder as well 다운로드.
