Classy Kell Dismantles Hatton

Kell Brook underlined his world title credentials as he produced a dazzling display to claim a unanimous points decision over welterweight rival Matthew Hatton on Saturday night.
Billed as the ‘War of the Roses’, Hatton had been expected to provide Brook with a real test, but the Sheffield fighter turned on the style in front of his home fans at the Motorpoint Arena to emerge an emphatic victory.
Brook – who now has a perfect 27-0 professional record – dominated from the first bell with Hatton unable to make the kind of busy, aggressive start many had predicted.

Groves Out Of Title Defence

George Groves has pulled out of his British and commonwealth title defence against Kenny Anderson with an unspecified injury, the fight was due to take place on Friday at Wembley Arena. George will look to recover quickly as he has been made manditory to the WBO super middle weight belt currently held by Robert Stieglitz. Is a world title shot too soon for Groves or should he rearrange the defence against Anderson?

Big Fight Build Up

As we continue the build up to the superfight which is now only a couple days away, here is a video of arguably David Hayes finest performance as he blew away Enzo Maccarinelli inside two rounds! Haye shows great speed and big power in this fight, both of which he will need if he is to defeat Wladamir Klitschko.

Weekend Boxing Round Up

A great weekend of action started off the by Kell Brook coming of age in his W.B.A intercontinental fight with Lovemore N’Dou. Brook looked the best we have seen as he almost became the first man to stop the former world title challenger. Despite taking a few heavy shots Brook won a wide points decision and now looks to be moving towards the world class stage.

In the second big fight of the weekend Matthew Macklin looked to take long time W.B.A Champion Felix Sturm’s belt away from him. Macklin started well with high work rate possibly winning the first 6 rounds, but as the fight the went on Sturm began to land the more accurate and eye catching shots. At the final bell it looked as though Macklin had done enough to win in his first effort at a world crown, but as it happens so often in Germany the Judges scored a controversial split decision in favor of the home fighter. A brave effort none the less from Macklin who proved he can more than mix it on the world scene.

Weekend Boxing Preview

A big weekend for British boxing as Matthew Macklin challenges For Felix Sturm’s W.B.A. World middleweight title. Its a tough ask for the brummie banger as he faces a highley experienced fighter who has been involved in 17 world title fights and has only ever lost twice, one of those a controversial decision loss to the legendary Oscar De La Hoya. Macklins best chance of winning the fight is to go for the knockout early, he has the power as we saw when he knocked out Amin Asikainen for the European title in 2009. Over 12 rounds Sturms experience will come into play and being the home fighter in his native Germany will be a massive advantage.

Sugar Rays Prediction:

Heart says Macklin knockout in rounds 1-6
Head says Strum via decision

Also in action is Sheffields ultra talented welterweight Kell Brook, as he looks to become the first man to stop the super tough Lovermore N’Dou for the W.B.A. Intercontinentel title.
Its a step up in class for Brook, N’Dou has fought the likes of Miguel Cotto, Paulie Mallignaggi and Saul Alvarez. British fans will remember him fighting to a draw with Matthew Hatton in 2009. Brook has the speed to win and at 39 N’Dou’s best years are probably behind him, but it will be very intersting to see how the fight unfolds should it go to into the later rounds as Kell Brook has never been past 7 rounds in his career.

Sugar Rays Prediciton:

Brook to be too fast and slick for N’Dou and to win by decision over 12 rounds.

Derek Chisora Spared Prison

Boxing champion Derek Chisora has been spared jail after beating up his girlfriend – allowing him to take on Wladimir Klitschko in a scheduled world heavyweight bout next month. The 26-year-old feared going to jail after being found guilty of assaulting Yalda Kontratchy on May 28.

Derek was in court for theft and assault charges. On Friday the 26-year-old from Finchley, north London, pleaded guilty to the offences which took place on May 28. The Assault alone caries a maximum penalty of six months in prison and/or a fine.

Chisora, 26, had been warned he faced jail after being found guilty of assaulting Yalda Kontratchy, 24, who has split up from him. However, a letter of mitigation from his promoter, Frank Warren, helped him escape with a 12-week sentence, suspended for two years. Chisora is now clear to box Wladimir Klitschko in a world heavyweight bout.

Chisora attacked Iranian Miss Kontratchy, 24, after finding a message from another man on her iPhone, the court heard. The 1.87m (6ft 1in) fighter pinned her to the bed at her flat in Maida Vale, north London, by both arms, slapped her across the face and then turned her over and beat her buttocks and legs. His fury was prompted by seeing her referred to as ‘babe’ in the text.

Giving evidence from behind a screen, a visibly distressed Miss Kontratchy said: ‘He came into the bedroom with my phone in his hands. He didn’t let me explain, he just grabbed me and started slapping me.

‘He grabbed both of my arms with both hands. I was lying down and he held me really hard because he has got strong hands.’ He later admitted to police he had slapped her, although he denied assault.

During his assault trial, the fighter boasted of his boxing abilities, telling a magistrate: ‘I’m the best.’

Defending his actions, Chisora told City of Westminster magistrates ‘any man’ would have been angered by the text.

He was also charged with stealing the iPhone but bragged to the court he did not need to take it because ‘I could buy 60 of those’. Chisora returned the mobile to police during their investigation. His relationship with Miss Kontratchy is now over.

Chisora has two previous public order offences, three for assaulting a police officer and one of possession of an offensive weapon – a cosh.

He was spared jail and was handed a 12-week jail sentence, suspended for two years, and put under 18 months of probation supervision with 150 hours’ community service.

He was ordered to pay £1,500 compensation to his former partner and £500 costs and attend a domestic violence rehab course.

District judge Quentin Purdy said: “Your behaviour was disgraceful and downright humiliating.”
