Benavidez Stops Andrade – AND – Charlo Wins Comeback Fight

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

David Benavidez wants a big fight with Canelo Alvarez, and he decided to fight the slick boxing Demetrius Andrade who is one of the most avoided fighters to stay busy.  Andrade reminded me of Ronald “Winky Wright “ who was equally avoided since he was a slick boxer that no one really wanted to tangle with.  He eventually fought Shane Mosley who just finished beating Oscar De La Hoya twice and looking for a big fight with Felix Trinidad.  Wright upset Mosley and Andrade was hoping to do the same to Benavidez 콜린스 사전 다운로드.

For Benavidez, this fight was designed to show case his skills and force a bigger fight with Alvarez. He needed a big name on his resume.  Benavidez is coming off a victory over Caleb Plant and he won his last seven of his past ten victories  by stoppage and Andrade was his steppingstone to Alvarez 다운로드.

The first round saw Andrade boxing and moving as Benavidez couldn’t find his prey to overwhelm him and in the second round Andrade even prove to be aggressor as he unleashed his own ten punch combination and after three rounds I had Andrade up three rounds to zero 다운로드.  He out landed Benavidez 32 punches to 21 punches.   It looked like it might be competitive, but the fourth round changed all that.

Starting in the fourth round, Benavidez took over the fight.  Benavidez turned the table and dominated the last three rounds as he landed 96 punches to Andrade 36.  Andrade opponents in past fights landed an average 5.4 punches per round but Benavidez landed 20 punches per round in this fight with most of those punches landing in the fourth, fifth and sixth round 다운로드.

Benavidez started to control the fight in the fourth round and at the end of the round, a right hand sent Andrade down before the bell rang ended the round 다운로드.

Over the next two rounds, it was just Benavidez who simply dominated the fight as Andrade weakened and no longer capable of hurting Benavidez who kept pouring it on.  The fight was stopped after the sixth round as it became apparent to Andrade’s corner this fight was over.

Next fight that Benavidez wants is Alvarez and that will be a great fight, two sluggers against one another but Benavidez is the bigger and younger fighter.

Stevenson Defeats De Los Santos by Decision … Navarrete vs. Conceicao Battle to a Draw


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

Shakur Stevenson defeated Edwin De Los Santos in a very boring fight that would have cured insomnia and be quite honest, I lost interest as round and round we saw a pattern of Stevenson jabbing and De Los Santos simply did very little, satisfied to finishing the fight.  Stevenson landed 65 punches over 12 rounds, landing at a 31 percent rate whereas De Los Santos landed 40 punches, landing at a 12 percent rate.  Stevenson landed a little more 5 punches per round and De Los Santos little more than 3 punches per round.   Stevenson had some nagging injuries before the fight, but he did little to excite his own future in getting bigger fights as he was satisfied with jabbing and take no chances 다운로드.  De Los Santos was the challenger who needed to push the issue and never did.  He seemed too afraid to push the issue and never seemed to be willing to take a chance.  As challenger it was his responsibility to push the issue and he never did 애즈원 천만에요 다운로드.

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.

Showtime Championship Boxing: Saying Good Bye!


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

Showtime has now made if officials, it is no longer in the boxing business after this year, and this will not benefit the sport at all.  This leaves a big hole in a network where some of the bigger matches occurred, in particular after HBO left business. 

Boxing promoter Eddie Hearn noted, “A lot of people don’t get on with people in boxing, but you’ve also got to look at the bigger picture 다운로드. It’s not great news for boxing. It’s just a sign of the future and the sign that the way that content is being distributed and delivered to fight fans, and that is by streaming ahn lab 무료 다운로드. We saw that a couple of years ago, we made our own move to build those partnerships and those relationships, but boxing will be worse off without Showtime, as it was worse off without HBO.”

Showtime and boxing lasted 38 years beginning with the fight between Marvin Hagler and John Mugabi and for many years, HBO and Showtime aired the biggest fights, but CBS sports will be the main sports division for Paramount who owns Showtime and there is no plan to air boxing events on CBS sports.  Showtime was synonymous with boxing but no longer vpn gate.

Hearn point is that boxing is moving to streaming services and we are seeing that of other sports.  ESPN Plus is a streaming service where many sporting events are moving to, among those sports are boxing and DAZN has entered the boxing scene with their streaming.

Canelo “Unanimous Decision” Over Charlo

By Tom Donelson / Member Boxing Writers Association of America and a top respected contributor to since 2008

Jermell Charlo faced Canelo Alveraz in one of the more intriguing fights as Charlo, the junior Middleweight champion, faced the super Middleweight champion. 

Canelo was the bigger fighter and had been fighting bigger fighters for a longer period of time 다운로드. Charlo was moving up two weights class, not just one.  Canelo had been one of the elite pound for pound fighters from the welterweight division and even campaigned as a light heavyweight.  

What Canelo has going for him is his advantage at the higher weight, and he has excellent upper body movement and great power.  Charlo has a high boxing IQ and good boxing skills.  In his second fight with Brian Castano, he switched his strategy and stopped Castano.  Charlo was capable of adjusting but to paraphrase Mike Tyson, “Everyone has a strategy until the first bell rings, and you get hit the first time.”  Certainly, when Charlo started to feel the power of Alvarez, his strategy wasn’t going to work. 

When Floyd Mayweather fought a young Canelo, he out boxed and out thought Alvarez, and Alvarez seemed hesitant throughout the bout.  He learned a lesson in fighting Mayweather, and one thing was to follow all his instincts and let loose his power.  The Canelo that fought Charlo pressured Charlo and Charlo never fought a fighter with the ferocity of Alvarez. 

I thought that Charlo may win a few early rounds, but I anticipated that Canelo’s power and pressure would take hold for a late round stoppage. 

The fight was one sided and my own score card was more one-sided than the official cards which were 119-108, 119-108, 118-109 where as I had it 120-107 윈도우 10 rs3 다운로드. The only round that could have possibly been ruled in Charlo’s favor was the first round in which both fighters landed one punch in a slow round 윈도우 10 스팀 다운로드.

From that round, Canelo out landed Charlo every round, and overall, he landed double the punches over Charlo 제빵왕 김탁구 다운로드. He out jabbed Charlo the boxer and was more accurate with those jabs, and landed more than double the power shots.  Overall, Canelo’s accuracy was double that of Charlo and from the second round to the very end, this was a one-way fight in which the bigger Canelo proved too powerful for the junior middleweight, Jermell Charlo.  Charlo moved up two weight divisions and the difference was self-evident.  Even in the first round we saw Charlo retreat to the ropes 다운로드.

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.

Crawford Dominates Spence in Welterweight Showdown – 9th Round “TKO” Stoppage

By Tom Donelson (BWAA) Member Boxing Writers of America

Terrance Crawford has been one of the best pound-for-pound fighters having been first a lightweight champion before cleaning out the junior welterweights 다운로드. He faced Errol Spence Jr. for Spence’s WBA, WBC, and IBF titles along with his own WBO title.  Spence, Jr. had been a welterweight titlist since he defeated Kell Brook in 2017 for his IBF title. 

Spence, Jr 버뮤다 신드롬. is a slick boxer who can change sides seamlessly, has a powerful jab, and could sting the body with powerful shots. He had been a welterweight for his entire career as Crawford moved up to the welterweight. Crawford was one of those fighters who combines both power and boxing style, but I viewed this fight as a close one before the opening bell rang. I was wrong 다운로드.

Crawford often takes the early part of a fight to figure out his opponent and ends up giving away early rounds on the scorecard; but he comes back in the second half of the fight. In the opening four rounds, Spence averaged nineteen punches landed and thirty-five thrown compared to Crawford landing only seven punches and throwing fifteen. Spence has been a consistent puncher and he averaged nineteen punches landed per round throughout the bout; but Crawford increased both his input and accuracy as he doubled both his punches landed and thrown over the final four rounds 다운로드. This trend would indicate that it would be a close fight with Spence most likely to win the early rounds.

According to CompuBox, both Spence and Crawford are among the top ten when it comes to landing combination punches and their data were similar coming into this fight 다운로드.

The first round was a feeling out round as Spence threw forty-seven punches while only landing five, and Crawford landed only two punches; but then Crawford usually starts out slowly. While I gave Spence the first round, it had more to do with him throwing a ton of punches, but he was ineffectual. This would be the last round he would win as Crawford turned this fight into a virtuoso performance.

In the second round, Crawford nailed Spence with a straight left that put Spence on his seat. Spence got up quickly, but this was the first time Spence hit the canvas and it gave Crawford a 10-8 score.  The third round was close as Crawford landed fourteen punches to Spence’s seventeen, but Crawford was the more accurate puncher as he connected on those fourteen punches while throwing only thirty-seven whereas Spence needed sixty-two punches to land seventeen. Crawford had the more effective defense and Spence was having trouble landing those big shots.

In the fourth round, a straight left backed up Spence and hurt him while a hook busted up Spence’s nose. In the fifth round, Crawford landed upper cuts and hooks as he dominated the round. Spence looked spent but he showed his guts by fighting on. Crawford continued to land punches at will and in the seventh round, Crawford sent Spence down twice in the last minute of the round with lefts.
