Bradley vs. Vargas: A Pillow Fight in the Making?

By Adam Ewing and Nat Wilkins This weekend isn’t exactly replete with star boxing match-ups. The best national fight on offer is the Bradley vs. Vargas shindig taking place at the StubHub Center in Carson California. The broadcast kicks off at 9:45 p.m. ET / 6:45 p.m. PT on HBO. Here’s what brooklynfights.com editor, Adam Ewing really thinks: “For the past three years, Timothy Bradley Jr. (31-1-1, 12 KO)  has been banging with welterweight elite. Bradley’s resume is more impressive than his opponent, unbeaten Jessie Vargas (26-0, 9 KO).  I don’t look for this one to be a knockout, with only...

Wednesday Replay: Mayweather vs. Pacquiao

By Adam Ewing May 2, 2015 brought the free world a fight that had been in the works for half a decade. It is extremely rare that two of the greatest fighters of a generation are in the same weight class. Most fans of the sweet science have an opinion on who is the greatest of all time, whether it be Muhammad Ali, Sugar Ray Robinson or Leonard, but another name deserves to be thrown into the conversation, that is Floyd Mayweather. After handily disposing of Manny Pacquiao, his most rivaled adversary, Floyd “Money” Mayweather secured himself as the greatest...

Backyard Brawler, Kimbo Slice, Beats Down Shamrock

By Charlie Clark This past weekend, backyard boxing brawler turned MMA fighter, Kimbo Slice (5-2), stepped into the octagon with veteran Ken Shamrock (28-16), in Bellator 138 at Scottrade Center in St. Louis, Missouri. It didn’t take long for the fearsome Kimbo take down the 51 year old Shamrock, albeit not without some controversy. The fight ended with a first round TKO brought about by Kimbo’s trademark power punching and unrelenting aggression, the same style that made him a YouTube sensation beating people senseless around the neighborhood. I’ve heard a lot of talk about this fight both positive and negative. So here’s my breakdown. There...

Porter Manhandles Dirty-Fighting Broner

By Adam Ewing Shawn Porter pressed the action early and often, stalking Broner throughout the entire fight as a matter of fact. “Showtime” was just that as he not only dictated the pace, he landed a high percentage of punches while Broner was inactive throughout all twelve rounds. Giving Broner two rounds was extremely generous, and my prediction of a Broner split decision went out the window after round three. Turns out, our readers’ predictions on this one were spot-on. If Broner wasn’t holding he was getting away with elbows. “The Problem” appeared to have his hands full with an...

The fight is taking place at Las Vegas’ MGM Grand Garden Arena. It all started on Tuesday when we posed the simple question: “Will Broner Destroy Porter?” Our readers clearly don’t think so. Although Broner, aka “The Problem”, is the bigger name and has won world titles in three weight divisions (130 pounds, 135 pounds, 147 pounds), only our editor, Adam Ewing called for anything close – a split decision. Things got...
