Why is it all going wrong at Mercedes?

Ever since the world governing body for Motorsport (FIA) introduced a host of rule changes at the start of the 2014 season the Mercedes F1 team have dominated proceedings. After winning both the world drivers and constructors championships and acquiring thirty two race wins over two years it seems that nothing can stop them and that things could not be ...

Carlisle will travel for their next home game

Carlisle United will play their next home game at Preston’s Deepdale Stadium on the 19th December. This is due to flooding as a result of Storm Desmond that wreaked havoc across the North-West leaving thousands of homes without power and left Carlisle’s Brunton Park underwater. Their opponents for the fixture Notts County have apparently been “extremely understanding every step of ...

Wlad the Impaled

Tyson Fury achieved the supposedly impossible on Saturday with a thoroughly deserved unanimous points decision victory over previous heavyweight kingpin Wladimir Klitschko. To say the boxing fraternity is still stunned by the result is no exaggeration.

For Fury to beat the man who was undefeated in 11 years and who has dominated the division will surely go down as one of the biggest upsets in boxing history. Was it as dramatic as when Sonny Liston quit on his stool against a young Cassius Clay? Or as shocking as when a befuddled Mike Tyson searched desperately for his gum shield on the ring canvas following a Buster Douglas right hand? No it probably was not because of the scrappy nature of Saturday's fight, but make no mistake the upset is just as great.

Fury was given no chance by nearly all boxing fans (the current author included) and must be given immense recognition for his performance. His team assembled an excellent game plan and their fighter executed it brilliantly, utilising constant lateral movement that left the champion unable to sol

Degale vs Bute: The Forgotten Fight

Almost totally overshadowed by the clash involving two giants  in Germany, another Brit is also in action this Saturday as James Degale makes the first defence of his IBF Super-middleweight title against Lucian Bute in Canada. Bute, who was the former IBF title holder until he ran into a rampant Carl Froch back in 2012, is not expected to win ...

Klitschko Fury: The build up

A little over 24 hours away from the biggest heavyweight fight of all time the build up has been impossible to ignore. The description of biggest is applied literally in terms of the size of the two protagonists participating and not the size or magnitude of the event. Although the largest heavyweight world champion ever was Nikolai Valuev who stood ...

MMA fighter does pre fight taunt, gets KO’d instantly

MMA fighter Jason Solomon put a lot of time into pulling off one of the cockiest walk-on routines ever. He made sure he had maximum show off power and intimidation as he as he entered the arena. Once inside, he swung on the entrance bar like an orangutan, confidently walked around and got up in the face of his opponent ...

Another Magic Night in Manchester

Almost 12 months ago Anthony Crolla was left fighting for his life after being struck over the head with a paving slab having attempted to apprehend two burglars from his neighbours property. He suffered a fractured skull and and a broken ankle and it occurred at the worse possible time, weeks before his first ever world title challenge. His boxing ...

Canelo defeats Cotto Golovkin awaits

On Saturday night in Las Vegas Mexico’s rising star, Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez,  graduated into their superstar with a hard earned points victory over Puerto Rican legend Miguel Cotto. And claimed the WBC middleweight title in the process. In a fight that did not quite live up to the “fight of the year” predictions from some (the current author included), the ...
