RINGSIDE GENNADY GOLOVKIN-MARCO RUBIO

October 19th, 2014 By Zak "Attack" Young

GOLOVKIN INTRODUCES RUBIO TO “MEXICAN STYLE”

Golovkin Demolishes Rubio In 2

Golovkin Demolishes Rubio In 2


Carson, CA has been a hotbed for good fights in Southern California, and tonight was no different.  In The main event of HBO Championship Boxing , Gennady “Triple G” Golovkin (31-0, 28 KO) picked up his 18th knockout in a row by destroying tough veteran Marco Antonio Rubio (59-7-1, 51 KO) in just two rounds.  It was easy work for the fan favorite, who managed to get a Los Angeles crowd to boo a Mexican fighter and chant “Triple G” throughout the evening.

GGG’S STAR STATUS CONFIRMED

I have been to a few cards at the Stub Hub Center, but tonight was special.  I have never seen the place so packed and full of life.  There were Kazakhstan flags and Mexican flags sprinkled throughout the crowd, and GGG was cheered loudly in his first fight in California.  People love knockouts, and Golovkin delivers them in style.  If he can just manage to convince the other middleweight (160) champions to step in the ring with him, we may get somewhere.  After the fight, the champ called out Miguel Cotto (39-4, 32 KO) for a unification fight, though it is highly unlikely that happens any time soon.

WALTERS CHOPS DOWN DONAIRE

October 19th, 2014 By Kevin Perry

NICHOLAS WALTERS STOPS NONITO DONAIRE IN SIX

A new star is born in the 126lb division. Jamaica’s Nicholas “Axe man” Walters (25-0, 21 KOs) looks like the man to beat at featherweight after completely dominating and then knocking out then WBA featherweight king Nonito “Filipino Flash” Donaire (33-3, 21 KOs) last night from the Stub Hub Center in Carson, CA. The Filipino stunned the Jamaican at the end of round 2. Walters dropped Donaire in round 3. In the waning seconds of the sixth, a counter right hand dropped Nonito the final time and the bout was stopped. Walters is a TV action fighter that is a breath of fresh air to the sport of boxing. In the main event of the HBO card Gennady “GGG” Golovkin (31-0 28 KOs) stopped Marco Antonio Rubio in 2 rounds to bring his knockout streak to 18.

IS EMANUEL AUGUSTUS BRAIN DEAD?

October 15th, 2014 By Jarrad Woods

Emanuel Burton

Emanuel Burton

EX-FIGHTER SHOT “EXECUTION STYLE”

New York, NY- Former light welterweight (140 lb.) boxer Emanuel Augustus (38-34-6 20 KOs), born Emanuel Burton has been shot in the back of the head in Baton Rouge, Louisiana on Monday and is on Life Support. This is unfortunate news as another pugilist has fallen victim to violence. Names like Vernon Forest, Hector Camacho and Arturo Gatti come to mind as fighters who have met their demise due to conflicts outside of the ring. Initially, I was hoping for a full recovery. A report that he is “brain dead” has been unconfirmed and there are no suspects.

ONCE HIT FOE WITH TWO HANDS AT SAME TIME!

Many of Augustus’ fights were unique due to his awkward and weird style in the ring. He often entertained with his jerky and slick style. It was problematic for some, but most solved the puzzle after a few rounds. He was able to land a handful of title shots but lost them all beside a WBO & IBF Intercontinental bout against John Thaxton, which he won by TKO.

STOOD IN WITH SOME TALENT

Augustus shared the ring and dropped bouts a host a names, including contests against Ruslan Provodnikov and Vernon Paris in 2010 & 2011. He also faced Mickey Ward and the late IBF 135 lb. champ Leavander Johnson, who died from brain injuries in a later bout.

CAN WALTERS BREAK DOWN DONAIRE ON HBO

October 15th, 2014 By Kevin Perry

JAMAICAN & DONAIRE CLASH FOR WBA CROWN SATURDAY

Las Vegas, NV- The co-feature of the middleweight (160 lbs.) title clash between Gennady Golovkin & Marco Antonio Rubio is what many expect to be the best featherweight (126 lb.) clash of the year. The victor would be considered by most as the man to beat in the division. At the Stub Hub Center in Carson, CA and live on HBO, Nonito “The Filipino Flash” Donaire (33-2, 21 KOs) defends his WBA “Super” featherweight championship against WBA “Regular” champion Nicholas Walters (24-0, 20 KOs) of Jamaica.

Walters-photo credit-Boxrec.com

To not confuse things any further, the Filipino is the champion by beating Simpiwe Vetyeka (26-3, 16 KOs) who bested longtime champ Christopher John. Walters has a paper title here. That may change after Saturday night. Ironically the challenger is slightly favored in what is perceived as an evenly matched affair.

 

ISLE OF JAMAICA HAD DOMINANT CHAMPS

When it comes to athletes in Jamaica you mainly think of track stars such as multiple Olympic Gold medal champion sprinter Usain Bolt. Jamaica however has had its share of world champions whether being Jamaican born or of Jamaican heritage. Mike McCallum (49-5-1, 36 KOs), a former 154, 160 and 175 lb. champion, “The Body Snatcher” is probably the best in the history of the nation. As well as earning multiple titles, Mike is enshrined in the International Boxing Hall of Fame.

“BODY SNATCHER” SCARED BIG NAMES OF DECADE

In the 80’s he was probably the most avoided fighter in the sport, never getting the opportunity to fight all-time greats Roberto Duran, Thomas Hearns, Ray Leonard or Marvin Hagler. Former heavyweight champion Lennox Lewis, while not born in the country is of Jamaican descent.

JOHNSON WAS “FIGHTER OF THE YEAR”

Other notable fighters with the Jamaican connection are former 175 lb. king and Boxing Writers of America 2004 Fighter of The Year Glen Johnson, as well as former welterweight (147) champions Simon Brown and Lloyd Honeyghan. Almost in a Honeyghan situation is Walters is in as Donaire is in a Donald Curry-like position when Honeyghan thrashed him at Caesars Atlantic City in 1986.

BOSTON MARATHON BOMBER AN ACCOMPLISHED BOXER

October 14th, 2014 By Pedro Fernandez

Tamerlan Tsarnaev: Before & After Boston Marathon

MURDERER #1 WAS DECENT BOXER

San Francisco, CA– As most you know by now two bombs went off near the finish line of the Boston Marathon last year. When the clock that April day struck 2:50 PM the world as we know it changed, especially for those injured or murdered in what appears to have been another murderous act of terror linked to religious fanaticism.

FROM BOXING & WEED TO MASS MURDER!

Having read a lot about the older of the Tsarnaev brothers, Tamerlan, the 26-year-old murderer, and I’m not going to be P.C. and refer to him as suspect #1 as NBC does, I’m going to give you a closer look at murderer #1 Tamerlan Tsarnaev, the 2010 New England Heavyweight Golden Gloves champion with a few insights gleaned from matchmaker Eric Bottjer.

BOTTJER HAS 25 YEARS IN GAME NOW

Bottjer, whom I’ve known ever since an August 1988 fight night in San Jose, CA when David Gonzales beat to death the first of two men with his fists, Rico Velasquez, has written for newspapers, magazines, is an author, and worked for just about everybody as a matchmaker, including Don King and the former America Presents.

ERIC ALWAYS LOOKING FOR NEXT CHAMP!

That being said, Bottjer is always on the prowl for “new blood.” This brings him annually to the National Golden Glove tourney and the like when his schedule permits. In 2010, Eric made it to the Nationals and that’s where he met Tamerlan Tsarnaev, or the aforemetioned, murderer #1.

FELIX VERDEJO NEXT PUERTO RICAN KING?

October 10th, 2014 By Jason B. Nava

PROSPECT HAS PEOPLE TALKING

San Francisco, CA- Lightweight Felix Verdejo is being groomed as boxing’s next Puerto Rican superstar and the call is no short order. Puerto Rican fight fans have long been some of the most passionate on the planet and with good reason.

KINGS FROM THE LAND OF BORICUA

From the careers of World champions Carlos Ortiz (135 lbs.) and Jose Torres (175) in the 60s, to the multi-division reigns of the Wilfreds (Benitez and Gomez) in the 70s and 80s, to Felix Trinidad’s gargantuan-like run at 147, 154, this before losing to then 160 lb. king Bernard Hopkins.

AND THEM CAME THE MAN NAMED COTTO!

Most recently the island country is basking in the outstanding career of linear World champ Miguel Cotto,

Miguel Cotto

Miguel Cotto

who carved out a reputation for his willingness to step in the ring with anyone. The picture is clear, historically Puerto Rico has birthed some of the best and most exciting fighters. Verdejo has a great cloud of witnesses who have paved the way for his career.

JUAN MA “CRASHED & BURNED”

But these are no easy shoes to fill. Just ask Juan Manuel Lopez who was himself being billed as the next face of Puerto Rican boxing before twice being starched by Orlando Salido (in addition to two other men including Mikey Garcia). Simply put at just 31 years old Juan Ma is already a shot fighter. With Miguel Cotto’s career coming to a close, now is the perfect time for Verdejo to begin establishing himself as the one to carry the torch for his nation.

TAYLOR FACES SOLIMAN TONIGHT FOR MIDDLEWEIGHT BELT

October 8th, 2014 By Kevin Perry

TAYLOR GETS UNWORTHY SHOT AT IBF TITLE

Las Vegas, NV- Being with influential manager/adviser Al Haymon sure does have it’s perks right? Tonight live from the Beau Rivage Casino is Biloxi, Mississippi, former undisputed middleweight champion Jermain Taylor (32-4, 20 KOs) gets another crack at glory when he faces IBF 160lb titlist Sam Soliman (40-11, 18 KOs) of Australia.

Jermain Taylor Horizontal

Jermain Taylor Horizontal

The fight will be broadcast live on ESPN2 at 6pm PST. Its clear that a well past prime Taylor didn’t earn this shot as he hasn’t had a meaningful win in over five years. He was stopped brutally in consecutive fights in 2009, the latter versus Arthur Abraham in which he was diagnosed as having a brain bleed after the bout.  Taylor  won the middleweight crown from the almost now 50 year old Bernard Hopkins in 2005. Hopkins will fight Sergey Kovalev in a light heavyweight unification bout November 8th. Ironically, Hopkins is still able to be successful at the world class level, Taylor however is a shell of his former self at just 36 years old.

TAYLOR CHARGED WITH MULTIPLE FELONIES AFTER SHOOTING COUSIN

A few weeks ago Taylor was arrested and charged in an incident at his home where he allegedly shot his cousin in a dispute. Surprisingly Taylor was released and the fight will still take place tonight. Jermain has been through much adversity inside and outside the ring. Soliman while no spring chicken at 40 years of age appears to be the more dedicated fighter and should be favored.

SOLIMAN NOT A BIG HITTER BUT THERE IS STILL DANGER

While the Aussie only sports 18 KO’s in over 50 contests, he throws a lot of punches. Taylor was knocked down and seriously hurt three fights ago against the unheralded Caleb Truax. READ MORE…

THE NIGHT “ALI THE FIGHTER” DIED IN VEGAS

October 2nd, 2014 By Pedro Fernandez

10/2/1980 FIGHT A RING DEATH TO MANY

Ali Training For Larry Holmes

Muhammad Ali Training For Larry Holmes

San Francisco, CA- The overweight man you see with a mustache here is Muhammad Ali in the late summer of 1980. After a two year hiatus from boxing, this after besting Leon Spinks in a 1978 rematch, promoter Don King (only eight years into promoting) convinced Muhammad to come back and fight unbeaten World heavyweight champion Larry Holmes on October 2, 1980, 34 years ago today. Actually, Ali didn’t need much convincing as DK was offering him $8 million reasons to fight again.

CHAMPION WAS SECOND FIDDLE HERE

A former sparring partner of Ali, Larry can be seen beating Ali up in a Deer Lake, PA training session in the movie, “Ali: Brains, Skill, & Guts,” taped in 1974 as Ali prepped for his “Rumble in The Jungle” with George Foreman. Holmes, AKA “The Easton Assassin” was 31 years young and 35-0, 26 KOs.
