Barker targets world title

Sky Sports viewers can look forward to seeing more of unbeaten middleweight Darren Barker on their screens in 2011.

That's because the 28 year-old, who is aiming to fight for the World Middleweight title this year, has just signed a promotional deal with Matchroom Sport.

Barker had a frustrating year in 2010, with injury forcing him to pull out of defending his European and British belts against Matthew Macklin in September, but has set his sights on regaining the European title and wants to follow that with a world title shot as he returns to Sky Sports screens.

"I'm delighted to have joined Matchroom and it's fantastic to be back on TV again - showcasing my skills on Sky Sports is where I want to be," said Barker.

"The plan is to have three fights this year - regain the European title, defend it and then get challenging for a world title before the end of the year."

The former Commonwealth title holder returns to the ring for his 23rd fight, taking on Italian Domenico Spada for the EBU belt vacated by Macklin, with a likely date at the end of April. The Barnet fighter says he is itching to get back to boxing and is keen to draw a line under a difficult 2010 and focus on his three-fight plan.

"Last year was a nightmare really but you can't look back, I'm very optimistic for the rest of 2011 and if it all goes to plan the way we want it to, then potentially I could be World Champion at the end of the year, that's what it's all about," said Barker.

"It's a matter of taking each fight as it comes though and I'm concentrating 100 per cent on fighting Domenico Spada."

Matchroom Sport's managing director Eddie Hearn added: "We are delighted to welcome Darren Barker to the Matchroom Team. Darren is one of the boxing's brightest young stars and has one of the biggest followings in the UK.

"It has been a frustrating period for him but now it's all systems go to re-capture the European title he relinquished last year and get a shot at the World title before the end of 2011 - we know he has the ability to do the business and will be ensuring he gets there as quickly as possible."

The best MMA entrances

Some fight fans don't like the big entrances; they just want the fighters to get to the cage or ring and fight. That's fine, but I appreciate when a fighter goes above and beyond to express himself, and shows he isn't a pugilistic automaton.

World Combat League

For those who dont like MMA because its to violent or those who say that boxing its to calm, chuck norris gives you the answer!
WCL - World Combat League

The World Combat League (WCL) is a full contact, team-based martial arts competition. Each team (consisting of 5 men and 1 woman) is from a different city or region.
he WCL is a "striking war" with short fights, to encourage an all-out style of fighting. Any striking techniques from Boxing, muay thai, International-Style Kickboxing, and Full-Contact Karate are allowed. In order to maintain the fast pace of the action, clinching, holding or ground fighting (grappling) are prohibited.
The rules are typical of other full contact striking competitions, with some minor variation.
I advise everyone to take a look at this sport as it really is very intense and has some very nice moves.

Boxing VS MMA (Part 2)

which I thought was the most dramatic boxing matches (those already seen, of course) and their counterparts in MMA. The result is the following list, with no particular order.

As you see, I just added videos of boxing matches assuming that since you are on that site, probably watched the MMA fights which I am referring. I also added just the highlights or the end of the fights mentioned here, but they are easy to find.

Hagler vs. Hearns = Liddell vs. Silva

In each case, three rounds, two of the greatest of all time.

Foreman vs. Moorer = Couture vs. Sylvia

Could that have been the best short of the glory one last time in ages which others usually retire? Guaranteed. Sylvia was overcome by a great strategy, and Moorer, was struck by the hardest fist of all times while winning, both fights were crazy and exciting.

Conn vs. Lewis I = Silva vs. Sonnen

Everything was going well until old habits come to light: Sonnen stupid again, Conn returned to being Irish.

Gatti vs. Ward I = Bonnar vs. Griffin I

Bonnar / Griffin may have had more significance on, but both fights are what they are fighting somewhat ugly, but extremely one of the most fun things that you may have already seen.

Ali vs. Frazier III = Fedor vs. Cro Cop

Both have their permanent place of honor in each sport by a litany of reasons, but more importantly for the magnitude of both can not fail to be cited. The two were also quite brutal.

Ali vs. Foreman = Bob Sapp vs. Nogueira
If you want someone to become a sports fan, show theme these fights. Nogueira had his moment Ken Norton and Sapp did half of what Foreman did (except in K-1), but both seemed Foreman Sapp and engines of destruction uninterrupted until the judges finished the fight.

Boxe VS MMA(Part I)

I dearly love both sports, so I want you both are "Good health". It seems, however, that most fight fans want to win something (since it has a fucking life) and thus draw
a line on the floor throwing shit to the other side. For a long time, boxing fans were on top, but now the MMA seems to have delimited a permanent advantage (PPV sales, media presence,merchandise, etc.). . .
Still, there will always be the debate on each intangibilities Sports: Which is more technical? What are the greatest athletes? Which has more
This last question is that I believe is the most intriguing. Kid Nate said something in Inside Fights and found interesting:

A fan of the UFC just does not know what kind of warrior spirit to Most have their favorite fighters since the sport was structured away from long and exhausting wars that defined boxing
last century onwards. It's easy to be tough fighters athletic for several minutes at a time. The real test begins after the exhaustion and is resolved when the athlete can no longer rely on pure athleticism.

Of course there are stars in the UFC as tough mentally as Arturo Gatti or Jake LaMotta, but fans will never be allowed to watch that side of her MMA fighters. UFC fights are designed to be short and fast, attracting the small free time public.

As a result, fans have no idea if the "Strongest Man of Earth "is just a poser that looks tough and true warrior.
In boxing, the truth always comes to and impostors are exposed before reaching the status of idols.

But Magno has an interesting take on MMA fights and boxing. MMA fights tend to be shorter because of the reduced number of rounds and the different ways to finish fights. That means we see less epic battles of strength and heart that makes boxing so great. In my view, this is still the reason why we still watch boxing.
