Hardy Closes Book On Domsodi at Barclay’s Center, Brooklyn

By Nat Wilkins, Brooklyn, NY, 8/2/15–Last night, hometown favorite, Heather “The Heat” Hardy defended her WBC international title in a rematch with Renata Domsodi of Hungary. The super bantamweight showdown advanced Hardy to a sterling 14-0 and closed the book on Domsodi, now at 12-6. The rematch was hotly anticipated by Hardy who told us in a pre-fight interview, “Every fight is really hard. But I am going into this fight ready to kill someone…Let’s just say I am not looking for this to go all 8.” Check out our photo gallery here. Hardy had first faced Domsodi at Barclay’s...

Garcia Passes Malignaggi Test: Farewell to a Hometown Hero

By Adam Ewing Danny Garcia (31-0, 17 KO) came to the Barclay’s Center in Brooklyn, NY and put the leather to the hometown hero Paulie Malignaggi (33-6, 7 KO), and stopped Malignaggi in the ninth round of a twelve round welterweight fight.  This was Garcia’s first test in 147 pounds, and he looked comfortable moving up a weight. As the fight got under way, Garcia landed the heavier punches, while Paulie was able to stay active with the patented jab. The jab wasn’t enough to keep Garcia from coming forward. Garcia ate everything Malignaggi offered and stalked the Brooklyn...

Jacobs vs. Mora: Rematch in the Making?

By Adam Ewing The first fight of the Premier Boxing Champions (PBC) on ESPN started off with a crowd pleaser. Brooklyn’s own Danny Jacobs (29-1, 26 KO) and Sergio Mora (28-3-2, 9 KO) went right at each other, in what could be Round of the Year candidate. The first to score a knockdown was Jacobs, when he connected with a right hand Mora never knew was coming. Like the warrior he is, Mora responded admirably, and connected with a left hook, dropping Jacobs, which in my opinion evened the fight. Jacobs left his stool only to prove he was the...

Jacobs vs. Mora: A View Into Personal Greatness

By Coach Eric Bradley with Brooklynfights In a pre-fight exclusive, Coach Eric Bradley of Master Boxing explores the elements of greatness behind Daniel Jacobs. “The things that this guy experienced in a 19-month period, most people would’ve just taken their own lives.” For those who aren’t familiar with Jacobs’ backstory: During a 2011 USO tour in Iraq, Jacobs developed a sharp pain in his legs. When he returned to the US, he was found to have bone cancer. By 2013, Jacobs had beaten the most formidable foe he will likely ever face–he was cancer-free. In 2014, he took the vacant...

It’s a Cash and Carry World for Paulie Malignaggi

By Mark Hampton Stephen King once wrote “it’s a cash and carry world. Sometimes you pay a little. Mostly it’s a lot. Sometimes it’s everything you have.” To think King was imagining a prizefighter whenever he penned those lines would be almost absurd. But in boxing, it rings true. In the beginning of a fighter’s career, pure athleticism is enough to get by. The majority of the time it’s equal opposition. Then sometimes it is David vs. Goliath. Editor’s note: When you’re done with Mark’s article, be sure to check out Coach Eric Bradley’s opposing viewpoint. And don’t forget...
