RETURN OF THE COBRA? BY ODHRAN CROMLEY

Return of the Cobra?

carl froch

Upon announcing his retirement in July of this year Carl Froch admitted that the desire had gone, that there were no fights left to motive him. After his dream of fight Julio Cesar Chavez Jr under the bright lights of Vegas collapsed as the latter was stopped inside nine by Andrzej Fonfara. Froch hung up the gloves after destroying domestic rival George Groves in front of 80,000 at Wembley Stadium and took up a punditry position with Sky Sports here in the UK. 

       

However the emergence of IBF and WBA champ Gennady Golovkin widely regarded by many as the pound for pound number one has prompted the Nottingham puncher to claim that the Kazakh has given him “the itch to get back into the ring”. GGG carries an impressive 34-0 record with a devastating 31 knockouts halting his last 21 opponents mostly recently IBF king David Lemieux inside eight. Froch a warrior known to never shy away from a fight taking on some of the worlds best in Mikkel Kessler, Andre Ward and Arthur Abraham to name a few has stated that a UK stadium fight possibly Wembley or Las Vegas as two potential venues for what would be one of the biggest fights in the sweet science.
       

The fight would be an intriguing one as the Cobra who has never been stopped in the professional ranks meets a fighter who no one to date as been able to hear the final bell against him in a fight scheduled for 12 rounds. It is believed that informal negotiations have begun between Froch and K2 promotions (Golovkin’s handlers) in Düsseldorf where GGG was ringside and Carl was working for Sky Sports where he chatted with Tom Loeffler, CEO of K2 Promotions which the fight possibly happening as a catchweight contest.
       

If the Briton was to return the ring it seems that the Golovkin fight is the only contest that reignites his desire to return to the squared circle as when asked about the possibility of meeting fellow countryman and current IBF champ James DeGale, Froch claims that its a fight that would be “too easy” for him adding that it is not a fight DeGale wants as he has stated in recent interviews that Froch is retired and should stay retired, the cobra seems to interpret this as a unwillingness on the formers part to take the fight.

TEAM LEFT JAB POST FIGHT KLITSCHKO-FURY REACTION BY HECTOR FRANCO

TEAM LEFT JAB POST FIGHT KLITSCHKO-FURY

new-heavyweight-champion-tyson-fury-dethrones-wladimir-klitschko.hashed.efd8e601.desktop.story.wide

By Hector Franco

 

LADIES AND GENTLEMAN, IT FINALLY HAPPENED!! After 11 years of going without a loss,Wladimir Klitschko met his match in Tyson Fury and lost a one sided unanimous decision. The scorecards read 115-112 twice and 116-112.

From the very beginning Fury’s movement and feints kept Klitschko at arms length. Klitschko would not let his hands go and was content to throw single shots throughout the fight. Fury was relaxed through every round and controlled the pace and distance of the bout with his jab. There were times when Fury would switch to southpaw and be just as effective as he was in the orthodox stance. After each round, Fury became more and more confident and even put his hands behind his back as a way to taunt Klitschko.

Rounds 1-10 were fought at the same pace with Fury simply out boxing Klitschko with his jab, movement and feints. Things were growing much more tense for Klitschko as he felt the fight slipping away from him after each round. There were some close rounds such as 1,4 and 8 where neither man threw many punches, but Fury was able to still dictate the pace of the bout. Klitschko’s biggest weapon, the jab, was completely neutralized by Fury’s movement to the point that it was a non-factor in the contest. Along with Fury’s movement giving Klitschko issues, this bout highlighted Klitschko’s inability to fight on the inside. The only weapon that the former champion had on the inside is to simply hold his opponent. Fury showed that if he was to be held, he was going to go to the body. Klitschko was unable to use his size to wear down Fury who seemed just as comfortable holding and punching Klitschko on the inside. Klitschko would even turn himself around after being on the inside with Fury, which led to some back of the head shots from Fury.

The 11th round was one of the most dominant rounds for Fury as he began to hurt Klitschko with every left hook he landed. Klitschko however spun around after being on the inside one too many times and Fury hit him in the back of the head. Tony Weeks was forced to take a point away from Fury as he had warned him already a couple of times about hitting in the back of the head. At this point, unless we were about to witness one of the worse robberies in boxing history, Klitschko needed a knockout to win. Klitschko had his best round in the 12th as he was finally able to land some right hands on Fury. Fury more than held his own and made it through the round unhurt.

There was little doubt that Fury had won the bout. The doubt was in the judging in Germany. The scorecards were closer than how most observers saw the bout, but in the end the right man got the decision. Fury had done what many did not expect him to do and that was not only win, but do so in dominating fashion. Fury had ended Klitschko’s long reign over the division and brought a new star to the heavy weight division. Fury with his many antics at the press conferences, workouts, and face offs seemed to get to Klitschko mentally. After the bout, Fury even serenaded the audience and his girlfriend with an Aerosmith song, sung by the man himself. While the bout itself wasn’t an exciting bout, in fact it brought memories at times of the horrendous John Ruiz-Fres Oquendo bout from the 2000’s. Fury has brought new personality to heavy weight boxing and as he said in his post fight “People mocked me, but my family and friends had no doubt I was going to defeat Klitschko”.

All Hail the new Heavy weight King, Tyson Fury.

CAN DAVID SLAY THIS GOLIATH?

On September 28 at the Manchester Arena in the United Kingdom a huge fight takes place that will likely land the winner in a world title fight against one of the Klitschko brothers next year.David Haye who last fought in July of last year had a  TKO win over Dereck Chisora and  is back to take on unbeaten top heavyweight contender Tyson Fury.This has all the makings of an exciting brawl with a big possibility of someone winning by knockout.

Both these fighters are likeable and draw huge in the U.K. That’s what makes this fight even bigger than it already is based on their records.Haye has two losses but one came  back in 2004 to Carl Thompson when he was campaigning as a cruiserweight.Since 04 Haye’s only loss has been to Wladamir Klitschko in 2011.Whether it was the toe injury or not that Haye said stopped him from getting his punches off , it was not the performance the boxing world or Haye  expected.He lost pretty much every round and was outlanded at will by the taller Klitschko.Since that fight, Haye has been looking for either a rematch or a fight with younger brother Vitali.Add to the equation Haye retiring then coming back with the Chisora win  and he now finds himself in against yet another large opponent in Tyson Fury.Haye had a great performance against boxing giant Nikolay Valuev in 2009 but Valuev has much less ability than Klitschko or Fury.This fight against Fury will give us a better idea of who the real David Haye is.The fighter who beat Valuez and Chisora or the fighter who was beaten easily by Klitschko.

Tyson Fury has a very marketable package.He is a giant in the ring and has an outgoing personality that will no doubt help him get fights and promote them.He is not shy when it comes to telling people he believes who he can beat including calling out UFC’s Cain Velasquez.He is undefeated and when it looked like he would get upset in his last fight against Steve Cunningham he came back to KO him in the seventh round.All three judges had Fury down on the cards due to Cunningham dropping Fury in the second round.So Fury can take a punch and come back to win.Tyson Fury does have heart.

When Haye and Fury finally meet in September,expect to see a drama filled fight with plenty of taunting and swinging for the fences.Right now I think I’m leaning towards Fury but it all depends on if  Haye can close the gap and get significant shots landed on Fury.If Fury keeps Haye at a distance with the jab it could be much like the Klitschko fight for Haye.If Fury wants to engage more, anything can happen since Haye has power in both hands.This should be a great fight with the winner getting a Klitschko  title shot and maybe if whoever loses puts on a great performance as well,he might get the other Klitschko next as well.
