CHICAGO, June 12, 2015 — This evening’s festivities at the UIC Pavlion were unwittingly axiomatic in its selection of principals: fighting in the main event for the vacant World Boxing Association’s, the International Boxing Organization’s and the World Super Weight titles, Erislandy Lara employed a style emphasizing deft movement, minimum risk and a calculated offense, and in the co-main event, rising light heavyweight puncher Artur Beterbiev (who’s won all eight of his previous professional fights by knockout) plied an approach favoring raw, unmitigated aggression.  The former style is most famously employed by sports megastar Floyd Mayweather, Jr., whereas the latter is a lynchpin of the popularity of Gennady Golovkin, (widely regarded as the best middleweight on the planet, holding the World Boxing Association Interim World Middleweight, World Boxing Association Super Middleweight, and IBO World Middleweight titles).  Coincidentally, some say that Golovkin is on the cusp of becoming the sport’s pound-for-pound king — a status that has been widely bestowed on Mayweather in recent years.

And tonight in this, the Windy City, which worships the smash mouth football of icons like Brian Urlacher, Mike Ditka and Dick Butkus, there’s no mystery here which style is more popular. (continue reading…)

SATURDAY night in Orlando, Florida, world rated contender Delvin Rodriguez, 28-6-1 16KO’s, Danbury, CT steps into the ring with future Hall of Famer and three time World Champion Miguel Cotto, 37-4, 30 KO’s, of Caguas, Puerto Rico in a bout that will be televised live on HBO. While Delvin has had many opportunities in his long career including two world title fights, multiple title eliminator’s, and numerous ESPN appearances, this opportunity presents Delvin’s biggest yet, against a legend as the main event on the ‘legend of boxing networks’, HBO.

Many have credited Star Boxing’s relentless efforts on behalf of its fighters as a reason for Delvin’s consistent ability to participate in so many high profile bouts and be the recipient of so many opportunities. Star Boxing, unlike many other sports entities, as a knack for rebuilding its talent. In Delvin’s instance, Star Boxing has continually provided National TV fights for Delvin, and has stood behind him where many others might have given up. (continue reading…)
