Damon Jones expects to come of age and dethrone Nick Blackwell

Andrew Wake | 29.06.15 10:50

Middleweight challenger Damon Jones believes age will be no barrier when he steps up in class to face British champion Nick Blackwell on July 25 at Derby Arena, LIVE on Channel 5. The promising 22-year-old has looked faultless so far in his professional career - winning 13 bouts on the spin - but has yet to go past six rounds and has yet to meet a competitor quite like Blackwell. Not that it matters in Jones' mind, of course. "I think this opportunity has come at exactly the righ...

Ricky Godding: Title dream keeps me going

Andrew Wake | 24.06.15 08:41

Bolton's Rick Godding says his dream of lifting the Lonsdale Belt is the only thing that stopped him quitting boxing after injury halted his rapid rise to the top. Touted as a future star likely to surpass British title level, the light-middleweight's career came to a halt in 2013 after shoulder problems, and a subsequent spell on the surgeon's table, derailed his ambitions. Inactive for over two years, the 30-year-old now makes his second appearance of 2015 when he gets a run...

He is scheduled to defend his crown against unbeaten Pole Krysztoff Glowacki on August 14 in either New York or New Jersey. Previous reports had suggested he would face Krzysztof Wlodarczyk on the same date. "I will be celebrating two firsts w...

Porter too good for Broner

Andrew Wake | 22.06.15 12:50

Shawn Porter added a second professional defeat to the ledger of brash Cincinnati stylist Adrien Broner on Saturday night. The Akron boxer outworked and outlanded his foe to take a unanimous decision at the MGM Grand Garden in Las Vegas. Marcos Maidana set to the blueprint to defeating Broner in December 2013 and Porter followed it to a tee. Porter used his physical advantages to pressure Broner before getting home powerful hooks. In response, Broner was often limited to pushi...
