The Eubanks have always been a unique, quirky and controversial duo. Eubank Sr in particular, who is never afraid to make his feelings known, has always been very strongly opinionated. This propensity to talk hasn’t been backed up.
Following protracted negotiations of over a year, Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor tonight both confirmed that they’ll be meeting in the squared circle on August the 26th, in a 12-round contest hosted by the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. The fight will be the first of UFC superstar Conor McGregor’s Boxing career, and the 50th of his opponent Floyd Mayweather’s.
Saturday June 17th Sergey Kovalev (30-1-1, 26 KOs) and Andre Ward (31-0, 15 KOs) will square off once again to determine the holder of the most belts in the light heavyweight division. Much has been documented about the controversial scoring in the first fight, where Ward was deemed the winner by identical scores of 114-113 despite throwing 137 fewer punches, connecting on 10 fewer punches, and being knocked down by Kovalev.
Undefeated former IBF junior middleweight champion Jermall Charlo (25-0, 19 KOs) will be fighting Jorge Heiland on the undercard of Adrien Broner vs. Mikey Garcia on July 29, according to RingTV.com. It’s not official yet that Charlo and Heiland will be on the card, but it’s expected to be announced soon. The fight card will be televised by Showtime Championship Boxing at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.
Sergey “Krusher” Kovalev (30-1-1, 26 KOs) says he’s going to make light heavyweight champion Andre “SOG” Ward (31-0, 15 KOs) pay for all his trash talking when he gets him inside he ring on Saturday night in their rematch at the Mandalay Bay Resort Event Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. During the Tuesday’s grand arrivals at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, Kovalev let it be known that he’s going to take it out on Ward inside the ring for all the talking he’s been doing. Kovalev wants to make Ward and Team Ward pay on Saturday night on June 17.
