I was born in Queens NY, but currently reside in Hackensack NJ. Became a diehard boxing fan in the 1980’s watching Sugar Ray Leonard and Mike Tyson.

I’ve enjoyed watching and talking about sports for as long as I can remember. In late 2012 I began to pursue a sports writing career with the Harlem Times. Within a few months I was covering events such as the Big East Tournament and the Adrien Broner vs. Paulie Malignaggi fight at the Barclays Center.

Love boxing because of the Sweet Science, the history of great champions, and knowing at any moment a fight can be over with one punch.

This Saturday night in Las Vegas WBC / RING Magazine middleweight champion Saul Canelo Alvarez (46-1-1, 32 KOs) will take on former two division champion Amir Khan (31-3,19 KOs).

Saturday night in front of a packed house at the theater in Madison Square Garden, Terence Crawford (28-0, 20 KOs) earned his 28th professional victory with a 5th round TKO victory over Hank Lundy (26-6-1, 13 KOs).

WBO junior welterweight champion Terence “Bud’ Crawford (27-0, 19 KOs) will defend his title this Saturday night against “Hammerin” Hank Lundy (26-5-1, 13 KOs) at Madison Square Garden.

Tonight’s middleweight unification bout between WBA middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin (33-0, 30 KOs) and IBF middleweight champion David Lemieux (34-2, 31 KOs) promises to be action packed from the opening bell.

On October 17th, WBA middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin (33-0, 30 KOs) will get something he has been craving for years - A pay per view fight.

Since the inception of the Premier Boxing Champions back in March, the organization has had some solid main events in the welterweight division such as Adrien Broner vs. Shawn Porter and Danny Garcia vs. Lamont Peterson.

Despite remaining undefeated, it has been almost two full years since Danny Garcia has had an impressive victory over a significant opponent.

September 12th is scheduled to be the day Floyd Mayweather stages his 49th and presumably final professional fight - and it’s just eleven weeks away.

On Saturday June 20th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas NV, former IBF welterweight champion “Showtime” Shawn Porter (25-1-1, 16 KOs) will face former three division champion Adrien “The Problem” Broner (30-1, 22 KOs).

This Saturday night, WBC and lineal middleweight champion Miguel Cotto (39-4, 32 KOs) returns to the ring for the first time in a year to defend his title against Daniel Geale (31-3, 16 KOs) at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn NY.
