Anthony Joshua returned with a bang as he KO'd Jason Gavern in
the third round in Newcastle to make it 11 KOs from 11 pro
Joshua was back in action after five months out of the ring with
a stress fracture of the back, and opposing him was the ebullient
Gavern, fighting for the 50th time in the paid
Gavern started well as Joshua eased his way back into the swing
of things, but the American was floored twice in the second round
as Joshua found his groove - but...

Adonis Stevenson didn't get the knockout he'd promised, but the
Canadian did once again underline his place amongst the
light-heavyweight division's elite with a dominant display against
Sakio Bika on Saturday night.
The WBC champion detonated several weighty left hooks through
the fight and dropped Bika in the sixth and ninth rounds, but had
to settle for a wide points verdict.
The victory takes Stevenson's record to 26-1 (21 KOs) and
bolstered calls for him to square off with ...

Kell Brook has revealed his frustration at Amir Khan's decision
to fight American Chris Algieri.
The British rivals have been linked with a massive dust-up for
years, but Khan this week confirmed that the Sheffield man will
have to wait as he is instead taking on Algieri.
Brook, who successfully defended his IBF welterweight strap
against Jo Jo Dan last Saturday, simply cannot understand the move
and is keen to let Khan know that he is ready for the showdown
"If someone ...

WBC light-heavyweight champion Adonis Stevenson is predicting an
explosive end to his clash with Sakio Bika this evening.
The Canadian takes on one of boxing's toughest customers at the
Pepsi Coliseum in Quebec City and feels his punching power will
help him secure a 22nd career knockout.
Stevenson has proven his ability to finish a fight quickly in
his victories over the likes of Chad Dawson and Tony Bellew, but it
could be argued that Bika is his most durable opponent to date.

feels both fighters need to show something different to the norm on

Huddersfield's Tyrone Nurse has been handed the opportunity to
contest the British light-welterweight crown against Chris Jenkins
after champion Willie Limond withdrew due to injury.
Scotsman Limond was due to defend the title against Jenkins in
Leeds on April 11, but a problem with his shoulder has forced him
to pull out. Rather than waiting on a rescheduled fixture, he has
vacated and handed Nurse a chance at glory instead.
For Nurse, it is a chance to right the wrongs of his s...

ADAM ETCHES has a simple message to the army of fans who turned
out in their hundreds to see him lose his unbeaten record last
Saturday - "Make no mistake, I'll be back, only better."
Etches was felled in the fourth round of his clash with Sergey
Khomitsky on Saturday at the Sheffield Arena, but the 24-year-old
is absolutely convinced he will learn from his split second lapse
in concentration and return to the ring both wiser and stronger.
"Don't get me wrong, it w...

Amir Khan has said he is more than willing to face British rival
Kell Brook in the next year.
The Bolton star has been linked with a Brook showdown for more
than two years, but the Sheffield star upped the pressure this
weekend following his victory over Jo Jo Dan.
Initially, Khan looked likely to rebuff Brook's advances as he
feels there are bigger fights on the horizon in the US.
However, speaking to Sky Sports News, he now appears willing to
take the fight, with Wembley bei...
