Fighter Of The Year: Jermall Charlo

HOUSTON, TX — No question about it. The young hitter from The Bayou City wrecked Cornelius Bundrage in September to capture the IBF Super Welterweight Title and join the hearlded ranks of World Champions hailing from Houston.

He made his first defense by clobbering Wilky Camfort in four rounds in Dallas and seems to have the right tools for a long and successful career. I would like to see him more active however, as he boxed less than a combined 17 rounds throughout all of 2015. (continue reading…)

Hard Hitting Contenders Collide in the Bayou City

Lou Savarese

Greetings from a packed Reliant Arena in Houston, Texas as two of the hardest punching heavyweights on the planet are set to do battle as IBA Heavyweight Champion “Big” Lou Savarese squares off against the dynamite punching Cleveland “Big Cat” Williams in a fight between two big guys that all of the fistic prognosticators are claiming won’t go the limit.

Savarese is coming off of a disputed decision to George Foreman and he feels he was cheated out of that victory by the officials and has promised that he is not going to let this fight go to the cards. Williams is fresh off of a knockout victory over Ernie Terrell and has vowed to “Beat the stuffing out of Savarese!” as there are hard feelings between the two gladiators after a heated sparring session got out of hand between the pair a couple of years ago at the famed Benbow Gymnasium on Congress Ave.

The duo are clothed classically in their boxing attire with Williams wearing the black trunks with the white striping while Savarese dons the white Everlast trunks with the black trim as the opening bell is about to sound the start of this brawl that may wind up being one of the best action fights of the year.
