The GGG bulldozer rolls on. 'Honorary Mexican' Gennady Gennadyevich Golovkin predictably crushed slick southpaw Willie Monroe Jr in six in front of a spellbound crowd at The Forum in Inglewood, California; less predictable was the spirit, success and downright cojones of Monroe Jr whose surprising rally from a near fight-ending second round hinted he will remain a contender for the foreseeable future.

 

The Boxing Booth Uncut: Part I

Every so often, we enter a clearing - the moment when we break through the undergrowth of daily choices and are faced with the realisation that we have the time and space to make a life decision that will take us in a new direction. These clearings can be purposefully crafted or forced upon us by destiny. Adam Booth found himself in this position after breaking his leg during a game of football in 1991, just as he was about to turn professional under Mickey Duff following an amateur career that saw him win 30 out of 36 amateur fights. Sadly, the break robbed him of that dream. Instead, it set him on a path as a trainer of champions.

Raza Hamza: 'The Promise'

Every man who laces up the gloves and steps in to a boxing ring has a reason for doing so. For some, the sport is seen as the route to a better life, an opportunity to provide for themselves and their families through the only thing they’ve ever known - fighting. For others, the boxing gym is a sanctuary from a life rapidly spiralling in to an abyss and provides an outlet for controlled aggression, instilling self-discipline in the process. For Raza Hamza, 1-0 (1 KO), his motivation is – simultaneously - more simplistic and heartfelt. He fights to fulfil a promise to his late mother. Having witnessed the rise of Amir Khan on terrestrial television she encouraged her son try his hand at the sweet science.
