Foreman's Fortitude Wins Over Fans

By Joseph R. Holzer of Pugilism 101. Yuri Foreman left Yankee Stadium a winner. Sometimes competitive spirit is enough to nullify a loss and blur the line between victory and defeat in the court of public opinion. After all, boxing fans gravitate toward balls-to-the-wall brawlers, those who spill as much blood as they draw. Read the rest here...

Another Tomorrow: Miguel Cotto TKO9 Yuri Foreman

By Carlos Acevedo of The Cruelest Sport. Miguel Cotto got back in the win column and put himself back into the present tense after scoring a strange 9th round TKO over an injured Yuri Foreman in Yankee Stadium last night. Arthur Mercante Jr., perhaps caught in a time warp that sent him back to the 1900s when fighters took more abuse than pack mules in a frontier mining town, refused to acknowledge the white towel of surrender thrown into the ring by the Foreman camp in the 8th round and allowed the fight to continue. He finally called a halt to the bout after Foreman was dropped by a bodyshot in the ninth.

The question here is whether Cotto can still be considered among the best boxers in the world. If Cotto has faded dramatically as a result of hard fights over the last few years, then Foreman becomes a legitimate threat to pull an upset. He might be in the right place at the right time, and, more importantly, he might actually know it. Read the rest here...

Floyd Mayweather: It's the same old song and dance

Ever since he moved up to welterweight, Mayweather has made it his job to avoid the top welters. It is getting, or rather, has gotten old. Maybe he should retire or move back to lightweight.

Pacquiao vs Clottey: Catchweight would not be an issue for Clottey

Some members of Team Pacquiao want the fight at 145 pounds. That bis fine with Joshua. When he beat Zab Judah he only weighed 143.
