  7. Living legend Hopkins enthralls at presser

    Michael Woods

    It has been a long time since Bernard Hopkins scored a knockout. So long, in fact, that the fighter himself betrayed a haziness that is totally atypical of a man who is so dialed in on staying in shape that he steers clear of sugar like it's rat p...

  8. How about Mayweather-Quillin?

    Michael Woods

    I've been mocked in the not too distant past for suggesting that Floyd Mayweather is such a ring talent that it would be wise to widen the scope of the search for future foes beyond the 147-to-154-pound region. I got whacked around like a pinata at a...

  13. Quillin's wish list: Geale, Sergio, Golovkin

    Michael Woods

    Peter Quillin has become a must-see guy. He simply puts people on their butt, and he has, I think, improved so much in the past couple years, and is now on such a higher plane because of a confidence boost that comes with holding a title belt, that I...

  14. Quillin & Co. on the ascent

    Michael Woods

    Confession: My thoughts on Peter "Kid Chocolate" Quillin's chances in his title defense against Fernando Guerrero were impacted by his difficulty making 160 pounds on the day before the fight. Quillin was 1 1/2 pounds over and I really wondered if he...
