A couple of weeks ago, we visited Cuban heavyweight boxer Luis Ortiz at the Palace Renaissance Nursing Home in Miami, Florida for an interview about his next fight.

Honestly, we couldn't get much sense out of him. One minute he'd be talking about fighting Deontay Wilder again, and the next he'd reminisce about the times he fought John L. Sullivan and Jack Johnson.

After asking no less than eight times if we were his sons and com...

Following the debunking of claims that Tyson Fury's gloves were tampered with prior to his seventh round stoppage of Deontay Wilder, the American shockingly revealed that a bleak horoscope on the day of the fight may have been to blame for his crushing defeat.

Former heavyweight champion of the world Andy Ruiz Jr has been appointed as 'Franchise Champion' by fast food chain, Taco Bell.

Ruiz Jr stunned Anthony Joshua to become heavyweight champion of the world back in 2019, before losing his belts in a rematch in which he appeared sluggish and even more out of shape than usual.

But despite the 30-year-old's mild fall from grace, Taco Bell have given the "Destroyer" something...

The former world champion is yet to respond to any of those challenges, but upon hearing that forme...

Following in the footsteps of Mike Tyson, Evander Holyfield and other old legends, Muhammad Ali is the latest boxer to announce a comeback, despite being dead since 2016.

The boxer many consider to be the greatest of all time died at the age of 74 back in June 2016, but after seeing Mike Tyson's explosive comeback video, in which the former heavyweight champion hits some pads pretty hard and fast for a 53-year-old, Ali thinks h...

The World Boxing Council revealed today that it has created a special 'one-of-a-kind' belt to commemorate the coronavirus pandemic, aptly named the 'COVID-19 Belt'.

Boxing's most leather-happy sanctioning body often creates one-off straps to commemorate special occasions, such as the infamous 'Money Belt' made for Floyd Mayweather Jr vs Conor McGregor back in 2017, or the 'Maya Belt', designed to pay tribute to Mayan culture in...

Fans of Filipino boxing legend Manny Pacquiao across the globe will celebrate today to commemorate the only time their idol ever fought on May 2nd, back in 2009 against Ricky Hatton, because that fight with Floyd Mayweather on the same day in 2015 didn't happen, okay?
