THURMAN EDGES PORTER IN SLUGFEST

 

 

KEITH THURMAN OUTPOINTS SHAWN PORTER IN FIGHT OF THE YEAR CANDIDATE  SATURDAY IN PRIMETIME ON CBS  

 

 Prizefighting returned to CBS on Saturday with a Fight of the Year candidate as undefeated welterweight world champion Keith Thurman edged former world champion Shawn Porter in a close but unanimous decision scored 115-113 by all three ringside judges.  

The 12,718 fans in attendance at Barclays Center in Brooklyn and the viewers across the U.S. watching the first primetime boxing event on CBS since Muhammed Ali-Leon Spinks in 1978 were treated to a slugfest between two of the brightest stars in boxing’s glamour division.

JOSHUA STOPS BREAZEALE

 

IBF heavyweight world champion Anthony Joshua (17-0, 17 KOs) scored a seventh round KO over previously unbeaten Dominic Breazeale (17-1, 15 KOs) to retain his title on Saturday night at the O2 Arena in London. The 2012 Olympic super heavyweight gold medalist Joshua staggered Breazeale in round two, but Breazeale survived Joshua’s onslaught. Joshua continued to batter Breazeale and finally dropped him twice in round seven to end it. Time was 1:01. 
Afterwards Joshua said he wanted Fury next but will have to wait.

 

Here's what he had to say

 

EUBANK JR. SAYS HE WANTS GGG

 

“Gennady Golovkin I’m coming for you,” said middleweight contender Chris Eubank Jr (23-1, 18 KOs) after his fourth round KO over Tom Doran. “I’m coming for your belts, man. Everyone’s scared of you. For some reason they think you’re this indestructible man. You’re not! And I’m coming. And if I can’t get you, Billy Joe Saunders, you I’m coming for as well. You’re getting it. (Saunders was the only defeat on Eubanks record).

Anybody out there with a world title I’m coming for!” Promoter Eddie Hearn added, “Chris Eubank Jr wants to fight Golovkin, Golovkin is ready to accept the fight. We’ll talk this week and hopefully that can get made. There are not many people that want to fight Golovkin, Chris does…I believe that Chris Eubank Jr. against Gennady Golovkin could well get made this week.”

 

FURY DENIES DOPING ALLEGATIONS

 

Tyson Fury ‘absolutely denies any allegation of doping’  

 

 Controversial British heavyweight world champion Tyson Fury strongly denied a newspaper claim on Sunday that he failed a doping test last year.   The Sunday Mirror alleged that Fury – who won the belt in an upset defeat of Wladimir Klitschko last November – returned a sample with a banned steroid in it.   “We are baffled by today’s story in the Sunday Mirror," said a statement from Fury’s promoter Hennessy Sports.

FURY INJURED, FIGHT POSTPONED

 

Injured Fury postpones rematch with Klitschko

 

 

World heavyweight champion Tyson Fury has announced the postponement of his much-anticipated re-match with Ukrainian Wladimir Klitschko after the British boxer suffered an ankle sprain on a run. Fury was due to defend his WBA and WBO heavyweight crowns against Klitschko in Manchester on July 9. A date for the rescheduled fight is yet to be decided. "The fight will be postponed. Sorry to all my fans, but injuries do happen," Fury said on his Instagram page. "The fight will be on as soon as possible. That's all I know at the moment. The fight is still going ahead as soon as the ankle gets better, we will re-schedule. "The 27-year-old caused a huge upset by beating Klitschko by unanimous decision in November, giving the 40-year-old Ukrainian's his first loss in 11 years.

 

Peter Fury Statement: So there’s no doubt of injury…sorry to our fans. The fight date will be postponed with a new date released very soon, probably today. Fight will remain in Manchester with the same venue.
