By Dan Ambrose: Deontay Wilder says he’s in top physical condition for his comeback on October 15th against Robert Helenius (31-3, 20 KOs) on FOX Sports pay-per-view at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. Deontay has trimmed down his physique with the help of a lot of workouts at the track and hard work in the gym. Wilder (42-2-1, 41 KOs) has a lot to prove to the boxing public after his consecutive losses to Tyson Fury, and he cannot afford another loss at this point if he wants to remain as one of the major players in the…

By Vince D’Writer: The co-feature bout on the September 24 Joe Joyce-Joseph Parker card was a one-sided affair as WBC/WBO/IBO featherweight champion Amanda Serrano made her return to the ring, and she did it in dominant fashion by earning a convincing unanimous decision victory over Sarah Mahfoud at the AO Arena in Manchester, England. Serrano started the bout by using the jab and targeting her opponent’s body. In the second round of the unification bout, an accidental clash of heads highlighted the round as the clash caused a cut on the top of the IBF champion, Mahfoud’s head. The remainder…

By Sam Volz: Promoter Frank Warren believes Joe Joyce will give IBF, WBA & WBO heavyweight champion Oleksandr Usyk a lot of problems with his size, pressure, and nonstop punching style. Warren feels that Joyce (15-0, 14 KOs) will wear Usyk (20-0, 13 KOs) down if he attempts to outbox him. While Warren points out that Usyk and Joyce fought many years ago in the amateurs, the Juggernaut has gotten a lot bigger and stronger since then. Joyce weighed 230 lbs when he lost a five round decision against Usyk in the World Series of Boxing. In contrast, Joyce weighed…

By Brian Webber: Eddie Hearn says Anthony Joshua “won’t” sign the contract by Monday for a fight against Tyson Fury because they have a meeting planned for that day to discuss the contract points.

It’s unknown if Fury is serious about bailing on the Joshua fight if he doesn’t sign by Monday. He’s got to know the money he’ll get for fighting Charr will…

By Jack Tiernan: Tyson Fury was impressed with the performance from Joe Joyce after watching him score an eleventh round knockout of his gym mate Joseph Parker last Saturday night at the Manchester Arena in Manchester, England. Fury says that as good as Joyce (15-0, 14 KOs) looked last night against Parker (30-3, 21 KOs), he wouldn’t be able to land his punches on him. Tyson feels that his defense would be too good for the slower punches thrown by the 6’6″, 271-lb Joyce. Boxing fans would like to see Fury test his theory that Joyce couldn’t land on him…

By Charles Brun: IBF featherweight champion Josh Warrington will be defending against #1 IBF Luis Alberto Lopez on DAZN on December 10th. This isn’t the type of fight that’ll attract a lot of new subscribers to DAZN in the U.S, as the casual boxing fans don’t know who Warrington. The hardcore fans are still waiting too see Warrington show some courage by trying to avenge his knockout loss to Mauricio Lara. Warrington (31-1-1, 8 KOs) and Lopez (26-2, 15 KOs) will headline at the First Direct Arena in Leeds. Lopez isn’t a big puncher, but he’s got technical skills that…

By Craig Daly: Joe Joyce earned the WBO mandatory spot last Saturday night with a victory over Joseph Parker, and now he’s hoping to challenge unified heavyweight champion Oleksandr Usyk or WBC champion Tyson Fury next. Fury said Joyce (15-0, 14 KOs) beats everyone at heavyweight but him. When told about that comment, Joyce said, “Sign the contract.” He’s ready to fight Fury next if he’s feeling confident in his abilities to beat him. Fury obviously isn’t going to take that fight with Joyce because it’s hard work, and he’s more interested in a big payday against Anthony Joshua on…

During a…

By Barry Holbrook: Joe Joyce (15-0, 14 KOs) immediately called out unified heavyweight champion Oleksandr Usyk after his eleventh round knockout victory over Joseph Parker (30-3, 21 KOs) on Saturday night at the AO Arena in Manchester, England. The win for Joyce earned him the interim WBO title, pulling him into the pole position to challenge Usyk for his WBO title. It’s possible that by the time Joyce gets a title shot next year, Tyson Fury will be the one that he’s facing for the WBO belt. Joyce did an excellent job of becoming the first to knockout Parker, but…
