“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.

FROM ALI-FOREMAN TO CAMEO ON AL HAYMON TV

San Francisco, CA– Promoter Don King cut his promotional teeth on the “Rumble in The Jungle” in 1974. With Muhammad Ali thought to be far past his prime, going against a man that destroyed Ali’s arch rival Joe Frazier, world heavyweight champion George Foreman. Now when you see King on TV, quite often it’s in the corner of a guy given little or no chance.

TEENAGE GEORGE FOREMAN “MONSTER” IN SPARRING

Having watched Foreman in the teenage years, his learning how to box at Newman’s Gym here at 312 Leavenworth St., to the Golden Gloves, winning the 1968 Olympics, and two professional careers that were separated by more than a decade, my vantage point was one that few people alive today saw as this product of Houston, TX’s roughest Ward, grew from that of a pugilistic seedling to a two-time world heavyweight champion.

BACK TO DON KING

Leading a crowd that included Hungarian President Yanos Adler at the 2013 World Boxing Organization Congress in singing the Donald a “Happy Birthday,” I had some laughs with a man who over the years has

proven incredibly brilliant and resilient too. Obviously tired and looking a lot like the Keep (Bob) Hope Alive character skit on the In Living Color TV show. But I had seem him wane before, lose his mojo and come back.
