With judges at main event boxing copping some flack of late for dubious scoring, Showtime introduced a new expert to their boxing team last weekend to take the viewers at home inside the minds of the men with the scorecards. Introducing Chuck Giampa, retired judge of over 100 world title fights… the only thing was when they did introduce him he had a brain freeze live on air, fluffed his lines and then uttered a four-letter expletive before being cut off. Tragic, hilarious and very insightful at the same time…
A fitting finale to the groundbreaking tournament that was the Super Six World Boxing Classic and the Fight Camp 360° series that followed it right from the promotional photoshoot at the start, right to the final bell and the fighter’s flights home.
WBC diamond middleweight champion Sergio Martniez tore into the organisation and its regular champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr, as well as his trainer Freddie Roach and promoter Bob Arum, for avoiding him.
Following a tough decision to take some time away from the sport he loves, Fight Camp 360° captured a still hopeful Jermain Taylor spending time with his family and adjusting to life outside of boxing. Now scheduled to make his ring return this Friday on a special edition of ShoBox: The New Generation, here is that 2010 interview with a homebound ‘Bad Intentions’…
In what was one of the fights of 2011, Ortiz and Berto duked it out in April for the WBC welterweight belt in a contest that saw both men hit the canvas twice before Ortiz rallied to a unanimous decision win.
With the dramatic conclusion of the Super Six World Boxing Classic only days away, finalists Carl Froch and Andre Ward assembled with their respective teams for the final press conference yesterday afternoon.
The world champions met at the Edison Ballroom in New York City to verbally stake their claim as the best super-middleweight for the last time before arguing the finer points with their fists in Atlantic City this weekend.
Carl Froch and Andre Ward debate their Super Six Final on December 17. Chaired by affable Showtime host Jim Gray, the pair argue about Carl Froch’s granite chin, Andre Ward’s dirty fighter tag, and the ability to knock each other out, as well as reviewing each other's record. The evenly matched verbal dual just showing how closely matched these two warriors are going into fight night.
