Eric Armit's Snips and Snipes - April 17, 2014 Snips and Snipes: Where have all the young men gone?

The live gate for Pacquiao vs. Bradley II came to almost $8 million, so with Pacquiao guaranteed $20 million and Bradley $6 million it gives a picture of just how much money TV puts into the pot. I am surprised there is not a market in 'idols of the gods of TV' as there's a lot of big time fighters who should be worshipping at the entertainment temple that makes them so rich.

Behind the Results with Eric Armit - April 16, 2014 Behind the Results - Worldwide Boxing Roundup

From Esbjerg, where Liverpudlian David Price saw the canvas again before overcoming Czech Ondrej Pala in the third, over to Newcastle (Aus), where Ghanaian former IBF welterweight champion Joshua Clottey outclassed Aussie Anthony Mundine over 12 for the WBA International belt at light middle. Behind the Results with Eric Armit who, if cut, has yellow and black coursing through his veins.

Naoya Inoue The Full Nelson: The Great Big 2014 Sink or Swim-athon

There's nothing more boring or lazy in journalism than a desperate flailing attempt by a writer to announce a completely bogus, made-up trend, in an obvious attempt to cover up for a lack of ideas on the part of said hack. With that in mind, I'd like to talk about what I'm calling The Great Big 2014 Sink Or Swim-athon

Johnny Coyle and team Johnny Coyle shines in Prizefighter Welterweights

Stanford-le-Hope southpaw Johnny Coyle walked away a worthy winner of a highly entertaining Prizefighter Welterweights IV at the York Hall, outpointing Wales’ former European lightweight champion Jason Cook and Stourbridge’s Sam Eggington before meeting Belfast’s Paddy Gallagher in the one-night tournament final. The first quarter final saw Erick ‘The Eagle’ Ochieng (10st 8lbs 3oz) put Paddy Gallagher (10st 7lbs 7oz) down twice in the first round in between a visit to the canvas himself.

Martin Murray

St. Helens former world title challenger Martin Murray got his South African adventure off to a positive start after Ghanaian opponent Ishmael Tetteh (29-10-2) stayed on his stool when the bell sounded for the seventh round of a scheduled ten at Emperors Palace, Kempton Park, Gauteng, South Africa.

Adam Etches

On Saturday night Sheffield middleweight prospect Adam Etches (15-0) fights Mexican Felipe De la Paz Teniente (12-1) for the chance to add more silverware to his mantlepiece. The pair will contest the vacant WBC Youth middleweight title.

Brentwood’s ‘Smokin’ Joe Mullender (6-1) got back on track with a close points win over Peckham’s Diego Burton (4-4-1) over ten rounds at the York Hall on Saturday. It was a belter of a fight on a slightly smaller than usual Goodwin bill, partly due to 'Flash' Ashley Sexton not making weight again (more on this later) and 'Big Dog' AJ Carter’s opponent, who reportedly turned up with Evo-Stick holding his mooey in place.

Behind the Results with Eric Armit - April 22, 2014

From Carlton where Shannon Briggs knocked out obese Mexican Francisco Mireles in the first round before gatecrashing the Klitschko-Lepai press conference to stake his claim for another world title crack (he spent time intensive care after his last one against Vitali), over to Washington DC where Bernard Hopkins alienated Beibet Shumenov to become the World's oldest unified champion. Behind the Results with Eric 'A-force' Armit.

Martin Murray

Former world title challenger Martin Murray (26-1-1) looks in good shape before his South African debut at Emperors Palace on Wednesday, where he fights Ghanaian Ishmael Tetteh (29-10-2). The St. Helens middleweight has been in South Africa for 10 days in preparation after signing a promotional deal with promoter Golden Gloves that he hopes will culminate in another world title fight.

Simon Barclay speaks to BoxRec News from Klitschko's Champ Camp

Heavyweight world champion Wladimir Klitschko is preparing to face Australian Alex Leapai on 26th April and as usual he has chosen the familiar surroundings of the Austrian Alps. Just hours after winning his professional debut at the Copper Box in London, 24-year old Corby cruiserweight Simon Barclay was on a plane to join up with him in what the Ukrainian calls 'Champ Camp'.

Anthony Crolla

Anthony Crolla (27-4-1) put in a career best shift to overcome an early onslaught by John Murray (33-3) and stop the former European lightweight champion in the tenth round of an epic regional battle. Make no mistake, this was the headline bout. Scott Quigg’s second round demolition of South African Tshifhiwa Munyai played chief support.

Stuart Hall and Paul Butler clash on June 7 in Newcastle

Darlington’s IBF Bantamweight champion Stuart Hall (16-2-2) and Ellesmere Port’s unbeaten Paul Butler (15-0) will meet at Newcastle’s Metro Radio Arena on Saturday June 7. Subject to final approval from the IBF, it will be Hall’s second voluntary defence.

Scott Quigg

Bury's Scott Quigg retained his WBA world super bantamweight title at the Phones 4 U Arena with a second round stoppage of South African Tshifhiwa Munyai, and now looks towards unification fights with Leo Santa Cruz, Kiko Martinez and, hopefully at some point, Carl Frampton.

Kid Galahad

Sheffield’s European bantamweight champion Kid Galahad has declared himself ‘ready and willing’ to fight domestic rival Scott Quigg after his next fight on May 10th. Galahad keeps busy at the Ponds Forge Arena and reckons he’s ready to 'face and destroy’ the Bury champion, who defends his title against South African Tshifhiwa Munyai tonight.
