(Fall 2017 Edition)
As we now enter the new Fall season, let me say once again how truly delighted I am to bring you the best in boxing with my website.
I thank you all that have written with comments and opinions. Your input fuels me to do my very best.
The key people that help make dmboxing.com a success are John Boitnott (WebMaster), Bob Quackenbush (Proof Reader and Lead Assistant), Tom Donelson (Member Boxing Writers Association of America), Jim Amato (Senior Boxing Writer), Steve Corbo (Guest Posts and Proof Reader), Kathy Kraft (Proof Reader), Harold Lederman (HBO World Championship Boxing / Hey Harold!), and in his memory, Rusty Rubin (R.I.P.) who was the first to contribute to this website upon its founding in July 2007; may your soul rest peacefully in heaven with the Lord.
Because many people have asked, for the record, my scorecard on the Gennady Golovkin vs. Canelo Alvarez middleweight title fight was 116-112, 8 rounds to 4 for GGG. I respect others opinions as well and I hope they will honor mine. I personally feel that judge Adalaide Byrd should be barred from judging any major fights of importance (period).
A feature that is a monthly regular on my website is the Fight Calendar which lists all bouts for everybody’s reference. I want to alert you to two outstanding fights that are coming later in 2017; be sure to mark them on your boxing agenda: November 4 – Deontay Wilder vs. Luis Ortiz, WBC heavyweight championship; and December 9 – Vasyl Lomachenko vs. Guillermo Rigondeaux, WBO super featherweight championship. Between these four boxers they have a amazing combined ring record of 91 wins, 1 loss, and 78 by knockout!
I have received some kind comments regarding my recent postings of several very historical boxers from the past: George Dixon, Terry McGovern, Battling Siki, Owen Moran, and Jimmy Berry. Coming later this month is George “KO” Chaney and next month is Young Corbett III for your viewing.

1) Andre Ward (32-0 / 16 by KO)
2) Terrance Crawford (32-0 / 23 by KO)
