Anber: A heavyweight tilt that has the boxing world on notice

It has been a long time coming since a heavyweight matchup has garnered this type of interest, but this weekend's contest between reigning world champions (that's an oxymoron to me) Wladimir Klitschko and David Haye, has the boxing world on notice. ...more

Anber: Hopkins makes history with brilliant performance

Regardless of what I think of Bernard Hopkins as a man, "the Executioner" - in the ring - is truly brilliant. In a display of discipline, skill, focus and most of all, ring savvy, Hopkins made history in Montreal, and became the oldest man in history to ever win a world title. Simply put, Hopkins is a great fighter. ...more

Anber: Pascal seems to have gotten to Hopkins

With less than 24 hours to go before the much anticipated rematch between defending World Light-Heavyweight Champion Jean Pascal and ageless, former world champion Bernard Hopkins, today's weigh-in provided an insight into the anticipation and electricity surrounding the fight. ...more

Anber: Pacquiao v. Mosley far from the fight of the year

How great would it have been to sit here and write a blog about the fight of the year? Unfortunately, while many may have held out hope for such an occurrence, sadly it didn't happen Saturday night, and by far! Before we get to the fight though, here is my beef, or maybe even my beefs for the fight. ...more

Anber: Thrillers all around in group of superb fights

I know it's been a while, but I just can't resist taking a friendly shot at Dutchy, especially when he opens himself up for it like a barn door. In last week's blog, I made mention to the fact that Dutchy had said "there are no big fights" coming up. Like the proverbial kiss of death, a Dutchy prediction is almost guaranteed to have the opposite effect. ...more

Anber: A fight of the year candidate and answering the critics

Last week, prior to the big fights this past Friday and Saturday, I got an unexpected call from my friend and former broadcast partner Dutchy. After some idle chit chat, Dutchy said how disappointed he was that there were "no big fights around". Well, as was the case when he co-hosted In This Corner with me, Dutchy was, as usual, wrong again! ...more

Anber: All the news from a wild month in the world of boxing

Well this has been without a doubt a whirlwind month in my world of boxing! I was all set to begin writing about the emergence of what I had hoped would be a new heavyweight champion of the world a couple of weeks ago when I traveled to Cologne, Germany to be in the corner of then undefeated number one contender Odlanier Solis. ...more

Anber: Something's stuck in my craw about 'Canelo' Alvarez

Up until last Saturday night, and well into this week, all I have been hearing about is Mexican phenom, Saul "Canelo" Alvarez. HBO has rolled out the marketing machine, Golden Boy is salivating at the drawing power, and Mexican fight fans, as well as all fight fans in general, are excited about this 20-year-old punching machine. Up until last Saturday, I too was more than impressed with what I had seen in this young, powerful banger. ...more

In This Corner: Jones earns well deserved win in rematch

It is often said that in a rematch, the fighter with the better skills will emerge victorious. That statement was proven accurate this past weekend in Las Vegas as the more experienced Mike Jones picked up a decision over the game but badly outclassed Jesus Soto-Karass. ...more

Anber: Getting the facts straight from Pascal-Hopkins

With 48 hours now passed, and while the dust should have settled by now following the exciting World Light-Heavyweight Championship between reigning champion Jean Pascal and boxing legend Bernard Hopkins, it appears things are just beginning to heat up. ...more
