Ricky Hatton Retires

The Hitman” Ricky Hatton formally retires from boxing. He will be focusing on his promotional company, Hatton Promotions, which promotes fight cards. Will he make it to the boxing hall of fame?

 Andre Berto to challenge titleholder Slovenian Jan Zaveck on September 3rd. Location unknown. This will be Zaveck’s 4th defense. Knockout artist Randall Bailey will fight the winner, providing he wins his undercard bout.


Miguel Cotto vs. Antonio Margarito Rematch; Find Discount Boxing Equip at www.BensBoxingGear.com

Miguel Cotto (L) & Antonio Margarito (R)

Miguel Cotto vs. Margarito Rematch on December 3rd. Margarito won their last bout, but was caught trying to cheat in his next fight against Shane Mosely. Bob Arum hoped to have the rematch in July, then September, and now it’ll be December, due to Margarito’s health issues. (After suffering a broken orbital bone Margarito also developed a large cataract from his fight with Manny Pacquiao. He was told that he couldn’t box if he had surgery on his eye and seriously considered retiring – his vision was really blurry. However, an eye specialist was able to successfully do a different kind of surgery). Let the Mexican – Puerto Rican rivalry continue… I’m looking for an interesting fight.

Paul “The Punisher” Williams returns this Saturday aftering losing to Martinez. He will fight undefeated junior middleweight fighter Erislandy Lara.

I’m going to get that belt” says Rico Ramos. The Puerto Rican-American will face WBA champ Akifumi Shimoda, also this Saturday. Since going pro in 2008, Ramos has yet to lose a fight. He’s 19-0, with 10 knockouts. This could be an interesting and entertaining fight.

"Brash Brandon" Rios

Brandon Rios to defend WBA lightweight title against Urbano Antillon this Saturday. The guy has a pitiful defense, but exclaims “To me, a great defense comes from having a great offense.” He can take a beating and give one right back. Plus, Antillon is a great offensive fighter. If you are looking for an exciting fight full of punches, I’d recommend this fight.
