Review: 2001-03-24, Oscar De La Hoya vs Arturo Gatti, for us, was the fight of the year of 2001. De La Hoya, nine months before, had lost against Shane Mosley and absolutely needed a win to move closer to a world title, Gatti, instead, did not suffer any loss in the two previous years. Oscar De La Hoya and Arturo Gatti were two boxers very technical and spectacular that could not give us an exciting fight. Watch the video!

Review: 2000-01-29, Mike Tyson vs Julius Francis was certainly one of the best fights of 2000, as many fighting of Iron Mike. In January 2000, when he faced Julius Francis (21-7-0), Mike Tyson (46-3-0) had already lost against James Buster Douglas and twice with Evander Holyfield, but at 33 years old he seemed still have the desire and the anger of the past.

Review: Julio Cesar Chavez Jr last weekend faced Billy Lyell for the WBC Silver middleweight title. The son of the famous Julio Cesar Chavez, however, has not convinced all his fans and especially his trainer Freddie Roach, the principal cause was the good performance of Billy Lyell. It will not be the fight of the year of 2011 but is a good fight to watch. Watch the video!
Where: Estadio Banorte, Culiacan, Sinaloa, Mexico
Review: 2011-01-29, very exciting fight between Nick Diaz and Evangelista Cyborg: four stars! In the first round Cyborg seems to suffer the series of punches of Diaz, but knock Evangelista Santos out is very difficult… In the second round Cyborg seems reborn and the action continues and they went to the mat for the first time…good finish! Evangelista Cyborg Santos vs Nick Diaz is valid for the Strikeforce welterweight title, main event of Strikeforce: Diaz vs Cyborg. Watch the video!
