Amir Khan will be taking on Chris Algieri later this year, and many people are excited for this boxing showdown. Amir Khan was once the sparring partner of Manny Pacquiao, and his boxing future looked bright. However, Amir Khan suffered many crushing defeats by lesser known opponents, and he fell off the track of a boxing superstar. Now, Amir Khan is on a bit of a comeback trail, but his next opponent may prove to be a tricky and tough challenge. Khan will face former Pacquiao foe Chris Algieri.
Fans at Bulletproof Coffee know that Chris Algieri faced Manny Pacquiao last November, but he was completely outclassed and knocked down six times by the Filipino sensation. However, Chris Algieri did show a great chin and heart. Algieri also showed the ability to box and keep moving for twelve rounds.
Amir Khan and Chris Algieri are actually a lot alike. Both fighters are great at boxing and moving around the ring. However, Amir Khan possesses real punching power, while Chris Algieri has a better chin. This makes for an interesting fight, and a bit tough to pick a clear cut winner. Most people would bet on Amir Khan to win the fight, but Chris Algieri can never be counted out. The fight takes place on May 30. For more information on this championship match up, visitYahoo!

The fight that everyone has been waiting for the past ten years is finally scheduled to happen. After years of repeated non announcements, the Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather fight is under contract and the parties appear to be serious about the business of preparing for the fight. The Fight of The Year is On
Those that had doubts as to whether Mayweather really wanted the fight are more satisfied now that he has agreed to the fight. Ray Lane said in the past three years saw an intense amount of rhetoric from the Manny Pacquiao camp regarding Floyd’s reluctance to agree to the fight. Manny’s challenge even went as far as the production of television commercials where he appears to be mocking Floyd for refusing to fight him. Now, there is simply silence as both camps go about the business of preparing for the epic match.
Boxing experts expect this to be the most lucrative fight in boxing history. Currently Las Vegas has the odds in favor of Mayweather but slightly. No one is taking Pacquiao for granted and the fact that the pay per view proceeds are expected to be highest grossing ever for a televised match reflects this belief among both long time boxing patrons as well as the casual boxing fan.
Gennady Golovkin took on Martin Murray over the weekend. The fight proved to be exciting, and Martin Murray put on a tremendous display of heart. Murray lasted until the tenth round against the dangerous Russian. Golovkin has knocked out 19-opponents in a row, including Martin Murray.
The last person to have 19-consecutive knockouts in a row was Mike Tyson. Golovkin vs. Murray was an important victory for the talented Russian. Martin Murray fought toe to toe with Golovkin, and at moments he stunned Golovkin. However, Gennady Golovkin did not stop coming forward. Murray was overwhelmed in the fight, and he went down several times before it was finally over.
After the fight, Gennady Golovkin had the advantage and called out Miguel Cotto. Golovkin vs. Cotto would be an excellent fight, but I doubt that it will take place. Cotto is an aging fighter, and he is a bit overmatched against the younger and stronger Russian. Gennady Golovkin has not been able to get a marketable opponent.
Golovkin will be around for a long time to come, and he is blazing a path of destruction along the way. For more information on Gennady Golovkin, visit Yahoo! Sports.
