Boxing legend Manny Pacquiao, who currently holds WBO welterweight world title, agreed the terms to fight former two weights world champion Amir Khan on April 23. Both boxers confirmed it on Twitter:
WBC heavyweight world champion Deontay Wilder in his post-fight interview shared his thoughts on his win over Gerald Washington.
"I knew he was going to come in excited to fight for a world title," Wilder said. "I just kept calm and found my rhythm. I knew he was going to tire out, and when he did I took advantage. It was all about timing. I'm very smart in the ring when it comes to using different tactics in the ring."
Heavyweight Krzysztof Zimnoch (21-1, 14 KOs) avenged his only loss with a sixth round technical knockout over Chicago’s Mike Mollo (21-7, 13 KOs) on Saturday night in Szczecin, Poland, Fightnews.com reports. In a highly anticipated rematch of their fight almost exactly a year ago, when Mollo knocked out Zimnoch in less than two minutes, this time Zimnoch dropped Mollo in round two and got the win when the bout was halted after round six.
