James Page



I know we are a bit late here but we feel we have to mention something about the ill fated "comeback" of former WBA Welterweight champion James "The Mighty Quinn" Page (25-5, 19).

Page started his career way back in 1990 with an opening round blow out of Luis Silva and over the following few years he would battle his way up the WBA rankings coming back from several defeats, including a decision loss to future WBC Lightweight champion Stevie Johnston.

In 1998 Page would claim the vacant WBA Welterweight title by defeating Russian Andrey Pestryaev via a dominating 2nd round KO. As the WBA Welterweight champion Page successfully defended his title 3 times, defeating Jose Luis Lopez and Sam Carr on points and stopping "Fearless" Freddie Pendleton in 11 rounds in 1999.

Following the victory over Freddie Pendleton, Page then struggled to get fights and was eventually stripped of his WBA title. Strangely rather than the WBA putting the title up for grabs for two new fighters, they allowed Page to attempt to regain it as he faced Andrew Lewis for the still vacant belt in 2001. Sadly for Page, Lewis was too good and stopped him in 7 rounds.

After the loss to Lewis, Page gave up with boxing, instead choosing a career of crime and he got mixed in numerous issues out of the ring including robbing banks. For the bank robbing he was given 11 years, though was released early.

Page returned to boxing a few weeks ago aged 41 and faced Azerbaijan born Rahman Yusubov (9-9, 7). Yusubov had entered the bout on a run of 7 straight defeats, with 5 of those coming by T/KO sadly however for Page, that run came to an end with Yusubov stopping Page in 2 rounds, and likely ending the American's return to the ring.

    Haven't You Given Up Yet?

    To some boxing is like a drug and fighters become addicted. This blog looks at the fighters who are still competing well into their late 30's (or above) despite their best years being well behind them.
