Canelo Wins “Trilogy” Fight … Defeats GGG

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

Canelo Álvarez and Gennady Golovkin fought their third fight, four years after their second fight 다운로드. Their first two fights were close with a draw and split decision for Canelo, but you could easily have given the victory to either fighter (as I did in their first fight as I gave the fight to GGG) remains.

The interesting aspects of this fight were that Alvarez was coming off a loss to Dmitry Bivol in a light heavyweight championship fight and Triple G was 40 years old and who knows how much he has left 200mb 이상 다운로드.

The first and second rounds were a feeling out process, but Canelo had the advantage in punches landed. I had the first two rounds 10-9 for Canelo 다운로드. The third round saw Canelo mix in flurries and back up Golovkin, and while no major punches landed, it was obvious that Canelo was the aggressor.

The fourth round showed the age divide between the two as Alvarez attacked while landing body shots and a hard left to the head Autoset download. In the fifth round, Alvarez rocked Golovkin with a solid right and added a body shot and an additional left.

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”.

Olympic Boxing


*** FLASHBACK *** This article feature was originally published on on August 19, 2012

By David Martinez / Boxing Historian /

With the 2012 Olympic Games now behind us, let me congratulate our country’s first gold medal winner Claressa Shields, and also bronze medal winner Marlen Esparza 다운로드. Their performances were nothing less than outstanding.

As I watched, in what little there was for my standards, the boxing competition, I was displeased with the judging and the officiating.  Olympic scoring is a computerized count of punches thrown, which is confusing because if you land a couple of more jabs than your opponent but are rocked yourself by a few more damaging punches you win the round 다운로드. So is this fencing with gloves?

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.

This edition of “Pages From The Scrapbook” features an event that took place in May of 1974 in my hometown of Santa Barbara, California 인공지능 다운로드. These newspaper clippings are self explanatory when you follow them in order.

Many of my readers today don’t know that back in the ’70s, ’80s, and ’90s, I was a boxing beat freelance writer for the Santa Barbara News Press, and these articles are what prompted the sports editor, Dave Kohl, to request my services and bring me in as their boxing man 다운로드.

As it turned out, this was certainly a wonderful blessing during that time of my young life, as I experienced the whole concept of journalism 엔트리 코딩 다운로드. It was that experience which guided me to be the best I could be in the production of my www.dmboxing website today.

By Tom Donelson (BWAA)

Author, Member Boxing Writers Association of America and contributor to since 2008

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.

Zayas Takes a Step Forward and Lopez is back!

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

Undefeated Xander Zayas took on Elias Espadas in a junior Middleweight battle Nginx download. Zayas came into this fight with ten knockouts in fourteen fights and faced an opponent who had yet to be stopped. Espadas had fifteen knockouts in twenty-two wins so this could have been a major test for Zayas 트로트 mp3 무료 다운로드.

Zayas dominated the fight and sent Espadas down and had 10-8 round. And this was the pattern over the next four rounds. Zayas landed more than double the punches and was the quicker fighter as he was able to land easy combinations 다운로드. While Zayas was able to dominate the fight, Espadas took Zayas best shots.

The most controversial moment was when Zayas nailed Espadas and sent him to the canvas for a second time in the fifth round 다운로드. Espadas got back up and looked ready to go on, but the referee stopped the fight. I viewed the fight being stopped too early but this was an easy fight to score 장기 무료 다운로드. Going into the fifth round, I had the score 40-35 in Zayas favor and if the fifth round continued, the score would easily be 50-44 going into the second half of the fight.

Zayas connected 42% of his power shot and 36% of overall punches compared to only Espadas connecting on only 23% of his power shots and 16% of his overall punches. Zayas was on his way to an easy victory if the fight continued and maybe he would eventually stop Espadas. Good performance by Zayas.

Teofimo Lopez was making a comeback from a loss to lightweight to George Kambosos Jr for the lightweight title and decided to move up junior welterweight. Lopez face Pedro Campa and in the first round, Lopez showed his quickness, but Campa continued to move forward. Lopez connected on more punches every round, but the fifth rounds was the closest as Lopez landed fifteen punches to Campa 14 rounds, but Lopez connected on the better punches.

Most of the fight though, he dominated the bout as he connected 52% of his power punches and in the seventh round, he nailed a combination and sent Campa down. The fight was stopped. For the sixth round, I was not sure if Lopez had power to stopped Campa but the seventh round he showed power enough to be considered a serious contender.
