I genuinely wish Marcos and Floyd all the best for their fight - two great fighters. As a team we have now moved on and are looking at different options. I've been training very hard since my last fight. I'm a fighter who wants to face the very best out there and have never ducked any opponent. I'm focused and ready for my next outing - we currently have a few options on the table at the moment and my team are working alongside Golden Boy Promotions to announce my next fight within the next 10 days.

London Chessboxing's Fight Not to Be Taken Too Seriously

Marvin Williams

The misconception is that chessboxing novelty will eventually wear off, hence the resistance on behalf of the sponsors. However, continued sold out shows, expansion across the country, entertained punters, new athletes and chessboxing gyms suggest differently, and are all things that London Chessboxing takes very seriously.

Anyway, I don't believe Klitschko isn't brave-he's proved it many times but having watched David Haye's savage sparring sessions recently leading up the Fury fight that unfortunately didn't happen I wouldn't blame Vitali for bowing out.

Froch v Groves - No Empty Words

Kevin Graham | Posted 26.01.2014 | UK Sport
Kevin Graham

My interest in boxing has been re-ignited in the last 3 or 4 years due in no small part to Carl Froch. His fight against George Groves was billed as a true British Superfight to rival those of the 1990s during the golden era of Benn, Eubank, Watson and Collins, and though I guess that might have been slightly ambitious, anyone who witnessed the fight on Saturday will testify to the fact it was one of the most exciting and thrilling British fights ever.
