No Holds Barred: Amir Khan, Paulie Malignaggi, Arthur Abraham, Andre Dirrell, Kristal Hart, Weekend Boxing Review
Wladimir Klitschko, the holder of two of the major heavyweight titles, and generally regarded as the best of the weak heavyweight division, punctuated another dominant performance by closing the show Saturday, March 20, in Dusseldorf, Germany, with a stunning knockout of challenger Eddie Chambers with just seconds remaining in their fight. We comment on that fight, as well as the state of the heavyweight division. We also discuss the brutal first-round knockout by welterweight Randall Bailey of Jackson Bonsu in Belgium, the horrifying absence of any medical assistance for Bonsu in the ring after the knockout, the victory by junior middleweight Sechew Powell in his rematch with Deandre Latimore, and the blimp-like physique of heavyweight contender and Olympic gold medalist Odlanier Solis.
This past Tuesday, at a news conference at Madison Square Garden in New York, we spoke with WBA 140-pound champion Amir Khan and challenger Paulie Malignaggi. They will fight there Saturday, May 15. The careers of both fighters are on the rebound after recent losses, and we asked them how they have been changing their approaches to fighting. We also previewed this fight with our colleague Kristal Hart of the Kristal Hart Show on Manhattan Neighborhood Network.
This coming Saturday, March 27, the Super Six super middleweight tournament enters its second round, as the unbeaten Arthur Abraham takes on Andre Dirrell at the Joe Louis Arena in Detroit, Michigan. This will be shown live on Showtime in the U.S. We spoke with both fighters on a recent media conference call to get their views on what to expect in this important fight.
