An American in London or an Englishman in New York?

January 28, 2013 at 4:47 pm Leave a comment

Just over a week ago the Americans sent a team to London as part of the World Series Boxing to take on the British Lionhearts. The United States Knockouts who have yet to win a match in this AIBA run competition were spanked again, but then again they only had two Americans in their team.

The Knockout had two Americans, a Frenchman, a Croatian and an Irishman making up the numbers.

So poor are the boxing stocks in America that Golden Boy Promotions Oscar de la Hoya’s company have just signed their first post Olympic boxer, British Bronze medallist middleweight Anthony Ogogo. Gold medallists Anthony Joshua and Luke Campbell are expected to sign up with Golden Boy in thc coming weeks.

It would appear that the days of American dominance are long gone, if the US has to look to Europe for talent. One can only hope that this will lead to more honest bouts between true contenders.
