David Lemeiux versus Curtis Stevens, 12 rounds on HBO at the Turning Stone Casino in Verona, New York is a fight I have personally felt for several years now was the best pure match up to be made at 160 pounds. Titles, money and networks aside, just in terms of the two fighters in the division who matched up the best, this was the middleweight fight I’ve been waiting for.

It exceeded expectations. (continue reading…)

GARY, IN – It’s often said that bodybuilder types don’t do well in boxing.  That doesn’t apply to Derrick “Superman” Findley, whose bulging back, shoulders and biceps generate tremendous torque that have hammered-out 13 knockouts of his 20 wins.  His victims include a young Andrzej Fonfara (who won his light heavyweight IBF World Title eliminator vs. Gabriel Campillo in August), Ronald Hearns (son of all-time great Tommy Hearns), and a litany of second-tier fighters.  In September, he stopped undefeated Mike Jimenez, who was 11-0 with 8 knockouts, but was battered mercilessly until his corner threw in the towel. That win became a no-contest when Findley tested positive for banned substances.

Forged in the mean streets of Chicago’s south side, Findley is very durable. He’s never been halted – save once to the ultra-talented world challenger Anthony Dirrell in March 2009 – but he can be out-slicked and out-boxed.  This accounts for his 11 losses, which reads like a “Who’s Who” of up and comers in the sport.  Names like Andre Ward (now WBA and WBC Super Middleweight Champion), J’Leon Love, Gilberto Ramirez Sanchez, Andre Dirrell, and Curtis Stevens fill this column in his ledger.  (continue reading…)
