Niall and Mike Tyson.

My name is Niall Doran and I am the Founder of which I launched with a passionate team of boxing writers in April 2015.

Having done a bit of pugilistic training myself (and in kick boxing) I decided through writing about the sport a few years ago, that I might be able to give a little back to fellow fight fans - who I believe to be some of the best sports fans on Earth.

I have now found myself covering the sport professionally these past few years and getting to hear the latest stories from the inside of boxing itself, which I am passionate about sharing with my readers.


I've had the privilege to speak to some great characters in boxing over the years. Here's some brief highlights and my experience within the sport:

  • Appeared on the HuffPost Live show in 2015 where I spoke to Evander Holyfield.
  • I was one of the first people to see pound for pound and modern day great Guillermo Rigondeaux's ring robe prior to a bout back in 2013 (courtesy of Manager Gary Hyde). 
  • Other than my own site, I've written for well known publications like Boxing Scene and The Huffington Post, along with print newspapers in Ireland.
  • I've had the honor to meet boxing greats like Mike Tyson and Roger Mayweather.
  • Attended multiple professional boxing shows as a member of the press.
  • I've been fortunate enough to have interviewed the likes of heavyweight champion Tyson Fury's trainer and uncle Peter Fury, Gennady Golovkin's promoter Tom Loeffler and many others within the sweet science.
  • Built a team of over 55 freelance international boxing writers at Boxing News and Views.
  • Boxing News and Views appeared on the Discovery Channel in it's first year as a website in 2015, featuring as an innovative new product.
  • Boxing News and Views reached the final of the Irish Web Awards in it's first year as a platform, and was the only member of the combat sports industry at the awards.


  • Certificate in Journalism
  • Diploma in Marketing and Sales

"The hero and the coward both feel the same thing, but the hero uses his fear, projects it onto his opponent, while the coward runs. It's the same thing, fear, but it's what you do with it that matters."

- Cus D'Amato (1908-1985) (Trainer to Mike Tyson, Floyd Patterson and José Torres)
