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.

Snips and Snipes with Eric Armit  - April 3 2014 Snips & Snipes: A weighty fine for Chavez Jnr?

There is a suggestion that if Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. comes back down to middleweight to fight Gennady Golovkin at the Los Angeles Forum - or some other venue - on July 12, there should be a $1million fine if he fails to make the contract weight. I have argued for some time that the penalty for not making weight for a fight is not tough enough, but $1 million is a bit steep.

Matty Askin

Blackpool cruiserweight Matty Askin believes he should be next in line for a shot at the British title. The 25-year-old retained his English title against Menay Edwards last weekend and feels it was a performance that should earn him mandatory status.

Dean Byrne

Irish Lightning Dean Byrne (17-3-1) believes the big names will finally want to fight him should he win the Prizefighter Welterweights IV on Saturday at the York Hall.

Crayford cruiserweight Menay Edwards has been discharged from Blackpool's Victoria Hospital after being admitted on Saturday night following his contest with Matty Askin for the English title.

King Davidson

Southampton based Nigerian southpaw King Davidson (18-1) gets a meaningful British test sooner than he thought when he faces Newport veteran Bradley Pryce (35-16) at the Wythenshawe Forum on April 5 in a Commonwealth title eliminator.

Behind the Results with Eric Armit - April 1st

From Arezzo, where Orlando Fiordigiglio came through his sternest test yet to stop fading Spaniard Ruben Varon in the seventh, over to Atlantic City, where Cedric Agnew sort of held his own against Russian wrecking machine Sergey Kovalev - at least until the seventh round. Behind the Results with Eric ‘It’s Tricky’ Armit.

John Ryder

Islington middleweight John Ryder (15-1) has admitted that he had doubts about going the championship distance for the first time against Billy Joe Saunders last year, and says the lessons learned from the narrow points loss will enable him to claim the Lonsdale this year.

Menay Edwards

Crayford’s Menay Edwards is hopefully on the mend after being rushed to hospital following this weekends’ English Cruiserweight title contest at the Blackpool Wintergarden in which he was stopped in the ninth round by defending champion Matty Askin.

Jason Cook

Jason 'The Power' Cook (30-5-1) has had a long and distinguished career, a professional since 1996 he has held Welsh, Celtic, European and IBO titles and this Saturday enters his second Prizefighter tournament. I caught-up with the Maesteg man at First Choice Fitness, Llantrisant where he was being put through his paces by trainer Darren Wilson.

The Vibranium Belt

The May 3rd contest between Floyd Mayweather Jr and Marcos Maidana has been given the ultimate upgrade by the collective sanctioning bodies as the pair will now contest the brand new ‘Vibranium’ title.

Next weekend, former World cruiserweight champion Enzo Maccarinelli (38-6) will be hoping to turn back the clock when he challenges Juergen Braehmer (42-2) for the WBA light heavyweight title in Rostock, Germany.
