Boxing legend Thomas Hearns wants to revive sport in Detroit Boxing_wallpapers_11

(Todd McInturf/Detroit News) Detroit Emanuel Steward, Detroits godfather of boxing, would have turned 69 last Sunday. Since his death last fall, boxing remains alive in Detroit, but the Kronk Boxing brand has been in hibernation. Boxers have been displaced. Some quit while others work out with former Kronk trainers in dingy gyms and unfamiliar studios. Former boxing champion Thomas Hearns wants that to change. I made boxing famous here in Detroit, me and Emanuel together, Hearns said. In order to bring boxing back again we need somebody consistently doing fights.

(PTI Photo) RELATED It was fun to fight in front of partisan crowd: Shiva NEW DELHI: The first time Mandeep Jangra tried his hand in boxing, that too by chance rather than choice, he ended up being thrashed by none other than his own father. But after Mandeep proved his mettle with a silver medal at the just-concluded Asian Championships, the 20-year-old was pleasantly surprised to find him at the airport to receive him. « Previously he didn’t even know where I was training, today he came to the airport to receive me, » said the soft-spoken Hisar-lad, who bagged the 69kg silver medal at the Asian Championships in Amman, Jordan.

Only three of Kovalevs 22 professional fights have lasted beyond three rounds. Ironically, prior to his most recent televised appearances, Kovalev was best known in boxing circles for a match with fellow countryman Roman Simakov; a well regarded prospect who carried a 19-1-1 record into the bout. Simakov was game enough to withstand a sustained beating from Kovalev, but was eventually counted out after a seventh round knock down. Simakov lost consciousness after the fight and, tragically, died 3 days later. In the most unfortunate of cautionary tales, Simakov stood toe-to-toe with Kovalev for nearly http://floydmayweatherjrcaneloalvareztickets.blogspot.com/ seven rounds and absorbed a great deal of punishment. Like Simakov, Nathan Cleverly is a brave fighter who is often drawn into fire fights, but before we start envisioning Apollo Creed/Ivan Drago, lets not forget that Cleverly is a Cardiff University-educated mathematician. Presumably, he is smart enough not to bring a knife into a gun fight. To his credit, Cleverly sought out Kovalev, so one would assume he has a plan. If he chooses, however, to stand in front of and trade with Kovalev, as he did against Tony Bellew in his most notable fight to date, you can bet that the result will differ from that which we saw against Bellew. In addition to his power, Kovalev is a solid technical boxer and is very difficult to hurt.

Boxing – Cleverly must evolve for Kovalev


They were wrong. By the 10th round, an outclassed-but-still-determined Hatton continued coming forward in an attempt to change the fight. With just under two minutes remaining in the round, Hatton lunged in with Mayweather along the ropes, and caught a counter left hand that sent him to the mat. The Manchester tough-guy rose from the canvas on unsteady legs, but the fight was over. Mayweather attacked along the ropes, felling his opponent for a second time, and prompting the referee to end the contest.
