Marvelous Marvin Hagler reigned as the undisputed middleweight champion from 1980 to 1987, making twelve defenses of that title, and currently holds the highestknockout percentage of all undisputed middleweight champions, at 78%, while also holding the second longest unified championship reign in boxing history at twelve consecutive defenses.

Nonito Donaire on victory over Ryan Burnett:

“I know it didn’t come about the way we would want it to, but a victory is a victory,” said the 35-year-old, who was fighting at 118lb for the first time since 2011.

“I feel great, I feel amazing. This tournament makes me feel 20 years younger - Burnett is 26 years old, these guys are fast, they’re strong, it’s something to look forward to.

“Ryan was a tough guy but we felt very comfortable going in there, especially after a couple of rounds. After the [Carl] Frampton fight I realised, you know what, it’s time to go back to where I belong.

“Today you saw how powerful and how fast I can be. There’s going to be much more of that. This is just the tip of the iceberg of what I’m capable of in this division.

“He’s a slick guy, but I know that with my power I can hurt these guys. It’s just a matter of watching, seeing, being patient with it. But I know I can hurt if I land something.”

Hall of Famer and the last undisputed heavyweight champion Lennox Lewis would not reveal whom he thinks will win the Wilder-Fury WBC title fight on December 1 in Los Angeles. 


He believes though that Fury cannot apply to Wilder what he did to Wladimir Klitschko when Fury won the heavyweight title in 2015, where he used constant movement to make Klitschko looked stupid from the opening bell up to the end. Fury won by a very convincing unanimous decision that surprised the boxing fans worldwide. 

“Wilder is a different kettle of fish,” Lewis said in BoxingScene. “I don’t think Klitschko expected Tyson Fury to be so active, so elusive in their fight. He didn’t expect Fury to move so much. I think Deontay will be expecting that. And I think he’ll move with him. It’s completely different.” 

“Deontay has a lot of power,” he said. “Anywhere he hits you, you’re going to be concussed. If he can’t knock out Fury, he better be prepared to box. Tyson Fury is fast on his feet, elusive. We’ll see if Deontay can catch up with him." 

“I think it’s a terrific matchup, which is how it’s supposed to be. Heavyweights are gladiators that want to prove they’re the best against the best. In the end, I think Fury will win because of his boxing if it goes the distance. If it’s a short fight, it’s Wilder.” 

Lewis was asked to pick a winner but could not forecast the victor. “My prediction … may the best man win,” he said. “It’s such a hard fight to predict. Both guys have talent and both have power. We’re not going to know what happens until we see the fight.”

World's top heavyweight contender Jarrell Miller (22-0-1, 19 KOs) will return to the ring on November 17 at the Kansas Star Arena. Eddie Hearn is promoting his fight against Bogdan Dinu (18-0, 14 KOs) for the interim WBA-NABA heavyweight title. Miller thinks Deontay Wilder (40-0, 39 KOs) will win over Tyson Fury (27-0, 19 KOs). 

"Man I think Deontay might knock his head off. It is just based on their past fights the past couple years or couple months. Tyson has been fighting guys we never heard of and the WBC is sanctioning the fight for a title. I think it is a little ludicrous," said Miller as told to Boxing Scene. 

Miller wanted to face Wilder the past few years and he doesn't expect the WBC heavyweight champ to have any difficulty fighting with Fury. The British former champion has survived drug and alcohol problems in the past and was inactive for more than two years before making a comeback this year.

Two of the top pound-for-pound fighters of the world, Terence Crawford and Errol Spence, met at the Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City. The two boxers are demanded by fans to come to a much-sought unification match. 

Spence and Crawford were both at ringside to watch WBO junior welterweight champion Maurice Hooker score a TKO win over Alex Saucedo. They talked for a few minutes, with both fighters expressing their interest to fight each other. 

Spence (24-0, 21 KOs) successfully defended his IBF welterweight title last June with a first round demolition of Carlos Ocampo. Mikey Garcia will move up two weight classes from lightweight to challenge Spence on March 16 on a pay-per-view event at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. 

Their respective promotional outfits will become hindrances to the realization of the fight. Crawford's promoter, Top Rank, has an exclusive contract with ESPN. while Spence's promoter, Premier Boxing Champions, has an exclusive deal with Showtime and Fox Sports.

Big-time boxing has landed in Kansas thanks to Nico Hernandez – and the local star will prove tonight that he was born to perform on the biggest stage when he faces Josue Morales in his sixth pro outing at the Kansas Star Arena in Mulvane, KS, live on DAZN.

Tickets are on sale now from ticketmaster.com starting at just $25! Click here to book!

Hernandez became a household name in his home state after landing bronze in the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio, and after turning pro, he’s raced to 5-0 with four wins inside the distance.

The Wichita native has drawn big crowds in all those fights, and that caught the eye of Matchroom Boxing’s Eddie Hearn, who decided to move tonight’s card from Atlantic City to Kansas to shine a spotlight on the 22 year old.

Hernandez insists that he won’t be fazed by being part of a bill that includes his Rio teammate Claressa Shields – as the big stage is exactly where the Flyweight talent belongs.

“Kansas has never seen anything like this before,” said Hernandez, who weighed 112.4lbs, with Morales scaling 113lbs. “There is pressure, but not really. Everyone is coming to watch me do my thing and all I’ve got to do is perform like I always do.
