  2. Klitschko: 'I understand I could be better'

    Michael Woods

    Wladimir Klitschko had his way with challenger Alexander Povetkin on Oct. 5 in Moscow -- there is no debate about that. But the manner in which he did it drew a good degree of criticism in the media and on message boards. I reached out to Wladimir...

  4. Yormark: Long Island boxing can be terrific

  5. Did Mitchell make the right choice?

    Michael Woods

    Seth Mitchell was touted as the next big thing -- the American version, anyway -- in the heavyweight ranks. The division is starved for someone, anyone, who can challenge the Klitschko brothers, and it was hoped, in the last couple years, that Mitche...

  8. Walker a far stiffer test for Adamek

    Michael Woods

    Tomasz Adamek is a heavy-duty draw in New Jersey, his second homeland, and the pole will once again glove up at the Prudential Center in front of rabid rooters on Sept. 8 (2 p.m. start time). A couple months ago, it looked like he'd be meeting th...

  10. Chambers aiming (again) at Klitschko

    Michael Woods

    So ... it didn't go swimmingly the first time around. Would Eddie Chambers even want another go at a Klitschko, even if it meant another tasty payday? "I would absolutely want another crack at [Wladimir] Klitschko," Chambers said. "He's the best o...

  11. N.J. fight could mean green for winner

    Michael Woods

  13. Wlad: Haye-Chisora sends bad message

    Michael Woods

  14. Maddalone stops Koval in Queens

    Michael Woods

    The dream is still alive. He's 38, hasn't been able to get over the hump in a half dozen step-up fights, but bless his stubborn soul, Vinny Maddalone wants to get that title shot, that crack at a Klitschko (or a Povetkin, he won't be picky), before h...

  15. W. Klitschko unlikely to fight at Barclays

    Michael Woods
