The guests in this one hour show were the trainer of champs Aaron Snowell and historian “Sin City” Richey.

“BOXING IS BACK” AFTER JOSHUA-KLITSCHKO

BOXING BECAME “EXCITING” AGAIN

Klitschko Eats "Fatal" Uppercut

Klitschko Eats “Fatal” Uppercut


Sausalito, CA– If you’ve been like myself, looking at the current boxing landscape you haven’t been all that excited. In some cases you might have had to take Viagra to get up for some of these so-called big fights that promoters have been putting forth.

COMPETITIVE FIGHT HAD “FIREWORKS”

But the Anthony Joshua win over Wladimir Klitschko, it was a boxing match that gave boxing a “Jump Start” as the sport in the minds of some has had a dead battery. And if this heavyweight shootout wasn’t your cup of tea, we are just five days from the Canelo Alvarez-Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. showdown.

SNOWELL THINKS WLAD SHOULD CONTINUE

As Wladimir (64-5, 54 KOs) contemplates retirement, the trainer of several world heavyweight champs, the great Aaron Snowell thinks Wlad should call out the much-avoided (27-0, 23 KOs) Luis “King Kong” Perez.

HERE IS “THE KEY” TO BEATING JOSHUA, ET AL

Any matchup involving Cuba’s Ortiz brings intrigue because he is short and throws “nuclear” uppercuts, AKA the unconventional shot. And if you’re going to beat these big guys, you MUST hit them with punches they can’t see, meaning Hooks & Uppercuts.

AARON NOT DOING WLAD ANY FAVORS

Stopped four times, each Klitschko loss outside of the Tyson Fury fight which was a UD 12, was preceded by his getting hit with something the 1996 Olympic Gold medalist didn’t see incoming.

NOBODY SINCE DEMPSEY & JACK JOHNSON

With 90,000 people buying tickets for the Joshua (19-0, 19 KOs) Klitschko Wembley Stadium event, I had to ask trainer Aaron Snowell when was the last time an American drew 90,000? Aaron brought up Jack Johnson and Jack Dempsey doing around 100,000 paid in the early parts of the 20th century.

MAFIA TACTICS BEING UTILIZED IN BOXING?

HAVE BLINKY OR CARBO COME BACK TO LIFE?

New York, NY– Boxing has it’s share of bottom-feeders, those who take inflated booking fees to line fighters, mostly opponents who live off the blood and work of both fighters and managers.

As we look back at this 2007 story, we do so because heavyweight Brian Mintothe latest bloodsucker ruling Sleazy Avenue puts his predecessors to shame. Allegedly he not only demands booking fees that often equal one-third the boxers purse, he does so with boxers he has under management contract. RingTalk.com has documents that illustrate Pat Nelson, a 38-year-old unemployed Youngstown resident, has taken tremendous amounts of side money off his own boxers.

BIG NAME BOXERS SAID TO BE SHORTED

Brian Minto, Billy Lyell, Joe Wyatt and 2004 Olympian Devin Vargas all have been in major fights the past year. All appear to have paid Nelson a managers share of their purses, as stipulated in their contracts with him. And all, unknown to them, had money skimmed off the top by Nelson, who demanded side money for the services of his boxers. Such actions not only rob boxers of their rightful purse money, but the boxers trainers take a reduced fee as well.

WHEN TAKING TOO MUCH ISTOO MUCH!, Nelson seems to have committed his deeds in the manner of a buccaneer, openly bragging about taking $25,000 off the top of Mintos purse from Mintos fight with Axel Schulz (a representative of Peter Kohls Universum Promotions has confirmed the secret side deal). When Lyell fought James Kirkland on Showtime, the boxer received $10,000. But the total purse was $15,000 Nelson arranged for a $5,000 side payment. Joe Wyatt was scheduled to fight Julio Garcia earlier this year. The purse total was $11,500, yet Nelson stipulated that only $8,000 be put on Wyatts contract for the fight. When Nelson attempted to sign Vargas with a promotional company, the Youngstown manager demanded a side payment as well.

WHAT HAPPENED TO FEDERAL BOXING LAWS?

Such actions are a blatant violation of federal law, specifically the Muhammad Ali Boxing Reform Act, which prohibits: A manager from having a direct or indirect financial interest in the promotion of a boxer, or from being employed by or receiving compensation or other benefits from a promoter, except for amounts received as consideration under the managers contract with the boxer.

NOT SOMEONE WITH “KOSHER” VERBIAGE

And Nelson gives those of a certain persuasion a verbal kick only a Nazi storm trooper would love. He has directed such remarks toward respected matchmaker Brad Goodman and top manager Cameron Dunkin, according to those interviewed. Those of a much-darker persuasion have been slammed as well.

WILL DUVA BE ANOTHER ONE TO SUE?

The resulting actions will land Nelson in court, perhaps multiple times. Promoter Dino Duva, who has a contract with Minto, has threatened to sue because Nelson took Minto to Germany while leaving Duva out of the negotiations (and money). Nelsons management partner with Minto, Felix DeAlisio of Baltimore, who invested tens of thousands of dollars in Minto, already has begun a lawsuit, as he was left out in the cold. Ohio boxing promoter Mike Powers has contacted a law firm about Nelsons booking of one of Powers boxers in Canada without Powerss consent.

BOXING (BOXERS) CLEARLY DESERVE BETTER

In addition to facing legal trouble, Nelsons actions also bring him in front of boxings court of public opinion. Will German promoters want to do business with a manager who brags of skimming purse money from his boxers on German shows? And, abouth those anti-(you know)remarks? Will U.S. promoters want to risk lawsuits from boxers under contract to Nelson if it can be proven their own manager violated the Muhammad Ali act? Time will tell.

GENNADY GOLOVKIN “TREADING WATER” STILL

NOBODY OF NOTE WANTS ANY PART OF “TRIPLE G”

GGG

GGG


Los Angeles, CA– As he prepares to defend his WBA middleweight (160 lb.) title for the 16th time, Gennady Golovkin (34-0, 31 KOs) has made it clear he simply wants to fight the best fighters available. He’s issued challenges to Miguel Cotto, “Canelo” Alvarez, Floyd Mayweather and Andre Ward to no avail. Entering his 35th professional fight, Golovkin has yet to meet the type of opponent who offers the career defining challenge he is in dire need of.

DESTROYED EVERYBODY WHO DARE FIGHT HIM

The highlight reel for Golovkin includes methodical beat downs of Gabriel Rosado and David Lemieux; quick knockouts of Matthew Macklin, Daniel Geale and Marco Antonio Rubio. Of these highlights the biggest should have been his previous outing against Lemieux, his only pay-per-view fight to date. Despite the big time atmosphere in New York City’s famed Madison Square Garden, the event did a measly 150,000 buys, not exactly superstar numbers.

HOWARD DAVIS JR. DEATH NOT SANS FIGHT

THE HOWARD DAVIS I REMEMBER

Howard Davis Jr.

Howard Davis Jr.

San Francisco, CA– When I learned that 1976 Olympic Gold Medalist Howard Davis passed a few days ago from Lung Cancer, I was relieved….for both Howard and his family. Suffice to say there are a lot of ways to check out of this Hotel we call Life. But dying of Lung disorders, I’ve witnessed many, it is a painfully, incredibly horrific way to die.

TALKED VIA FACEBOOK AS GENARO “FACTOR” LOOMED

We clicked a little back and forth since the diagnosis, but I couldn’t push myself to ask for any of his limited time to talk or do radio. This had a lot to do with my interviewing Genaro Hernandez 36 hours or so prior to his being KO’d by guess who, yeah Cancer. I was in tears as Genaro acknowledged death was imminent. Like Howard Davis, Genaro didn’t smoke or drink.

DEATH WAS GONNA BE QUICK

While it was clear that the Grim Reaper had reserved a room for the 56 year old as the Stage 4 Diagnosis meant weeks and then on his last legs just a fortnight ago, I just couldn’t push myself to contact Howard. And much like Genaro and SHO Box announcer Nick Charles, Howard fought Cancer like the greatest of champions, something I’m not so sure this writer is man enough to do.

Billy Joe Sanders

Houston, TX– A fortnight ago, the World Boxing Organization (WBO) middleweight (160 lb.) title clash between champion Andy Lee and challenger Billy Joe Saunders made me realize how far our beloved sport has declined in quality over the past three decades. Saunders captured the WBO honors in a 12 round sleepwalk at the Manchester Arena in a contest that was “sub par” as far as major fights involving world class competition.

WBO TITLE FIGHT NOT ONE FOR “TIME CAPSULE”

The WBO has historically has recognized some outstanding champions including: Erik Morales, Wladimir Klitschko ,Marco Antonio Barrera, Oscar De La Hoya, Floyd Mayweather, Manny Pacquiao and many others. And while I’m the first to realize that you can’t blame the sanctioning body. Still, this match was not one the WBO could call one of 2015’s best.

RDA STOPS CERRONE IN 66 SECONDS

BRAZILIAN BEATS THE BUDWEISER OUT OF “COWBOY”

Nothing But Bad UFC Press

2015 Comes To Close


Los Angeles, CA- UFC lightweight (155) champion Rafael Dos Anjos (25-7) continued his impressive streak with a 66 second demolition of Donald Cerrone (28-7) and the challenger’s 8-fight win streak.  Dos Anjos hurt Cerrone to the body early and piled on the attack.  Cerrone continued his habit of choking in the biggest fights, as he let the rematch slip away from him easily.  It will be a long road back to the title for Donald.  RDA may have a date with featherweight (145) king Conor McGregor (19-2) in the near future.

HOW DOES RDA FAIR AGAINST CONOR?

The main vulnerability Conor McGregor has shown thus far is his grappling.  He has lost twice, and both Ls came by submission.  Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is one of the strengths of the lightweight champion.  I am not so sure the UFC risks their biggest star against a guy with very little marketablity.  Conor always has a puncher’s chance, but RDA is a tough out for anyone in or around that division right now.  Read more

UFC ON FOX 17 BETTER THAN MOST PPVS

LIGHTWEIGHT (155) TITLE FIGHT IN MAIN EVENT

Cowboy Being Advertised More Than The Champ

Cowboy Being Advertised More Than The Champ

Los Angeles, CA- Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone (28-6, 1 NC) fights about a million times a year, and will make his 1,000,001st appearance in the main event of UFC on Fox 17. He will be fighting current lightweight king Rafael Dos Anjos (24-7), who is making the first defense of the title he took from Anthony “Showtime”
Pettis (18-3) in dominant fashion back in March. Cerrone is on an 8 fight win streak, with Dos Anjos being the last one to hand Cowboy a loss back in 2013.

WHO WINS REMATCH?

I think Cerrone gets his revenge here. This will likely set up a third fight down the line. Cowboy has shone a lot of improvement in recent fights, and looks poised to take the crown. If Cerrone wins, there are rumors he will face new featherweight (145) titlist Conor McGregor (19-2), which would be huge. I do not see the UFC risking one of their biggest stars, who lost twice by submission earlier in his career, against a less marketable grappling specialist like Dos Anjos who also happens to be the bigger guy.

FIGHT OF THE NIGHT IS CO-MAIN

If you asked me a few years ago who would win a fight between Junior Dos Santos (17-3) and Alistair Overeem (39-14, 1 NC), I would pick Dos Santos by knockout without hesitation. Flash forward a couple years, and Dos Santos has taken two terrible beatings at the hands of Cain Velasquez (13-2) and has not looked particularly good in a fight since 2013. I think Reem outpoints him, provided he does not get reckless and leave that glass jaw of his out for Cigano to put him out.
