Four-time heavyweight champion and universal sports legend Evander Holyfield will rematch four-time world heavyweight title challenger Francois Botha this fall.

In what was being labeled as "ShoBox: The Next Generation's 10th anniversary Telecast", which included a touching segment dedicated to the late Nick Charles, undefeated Super Featherweight prospect Diego Magdaleno (20-0, 7 KOs) defeated the always tough Alejandro Perez (15-3-1, 10 KOs) in a unanimous 10 round decision at Texas Station Gambling Hall in Las Vegas, NV, last night.

Following 'toe-gate' in Hamburg and the formal retirement of Ricky Hatton, British boxing has shipped a couple of stiff jabs in recent weeks. The quality Frank Warren card at the Liverpool Echo Arena this Saturday night should prove a welcome shot in the arm.

In the boxing universe, sometimes die hard fight fans get treated to an unexpectedly wonderful match-up that flies under the media radar and goes largely unnoticed by even the most ardent of boxing aficionados.

Living the Dream

Written by

Every boxer who has ever laced up the gloves, who has ever ran miles while the rest of the world is asleep, who has ever woken up the next day with swollen eyes, who has ever taken a beating while sparring a bigger and better opponent, who has ever been told "you will never make it," does this with the aspirations of living their dream and being called a World Champion.

On July 2nd, 2011, the big men were on the biggest stage in boxing once again.

Kevin Ferguson, known to most as Kimbo Slice, will make his professional boxing debut on August 13th in Oklahoma.

Marquez Knocks Ramos Cold in Round One

Written by

At Plaza Del Toros in Cancun Mexico Juan Manuel Marquez (52-5-1, 38 KO) knocked out Likar Ramos (24-3) at the 1:47 mark of round one. After a brief period in which Ramos appeared confident and composed, Marquez followed a jab with a straight right that landed on the point of Ramos' chin, sending him to the canvas. Ramos lay unmoving with eyes closed.

In taking this fight Marquez risked a five million dollar payday in his upcoming megafight with Manny Pacquiao this November. Marquez hopes to erase the memories of two previous contests with Pacquiao which resulted in a decision loss and a draw. Both fights are controversial, and Marquez feels he won each of them. When they meet one November 12 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas Marquez will have his chance to avenge these insults to his record and take Pacquiao's WBO Welterweight title.
