VIDEO OF HBO PROGRAM FEATURING GENNADY “GGG” GOLOVKIN AND DANIEL GEALE WHO FACE EACH OTHER ON HBO SATURDAY

POLITICS IN FULL EFFECT SATURDAY ON HBO2
Las Vegas, NV- It’s official. Being a great fighter is not the criteria for getting an appearance on HBO. Should HBO just start showing club fighters on TV? Saturday they have made one step forward in that direction. Two time Olympic champion Zou Shiming (4-0, 1 KO), who in essence is still fighting at the club level as a pro, faces Luis De La Rosa (23-3-1, 13 KOs) in a flyweight (112lb) bout from Macau, China on Saturday afternoon (5pm ET/PT) on HBO. Rosa is your typical opponent with a decent record built up against the usual suspects.
In his last bout he stopped a foe that boasted a disgraceful 0-20 record. The bout before that the Columbian was kayoed in 2 rounds against Moises Fuentes(19-2, 10 KOs). The 33 year-old Shiming is a superstar in China and is expected to bring more attention and popularity to the sport in the Chinese market. Can he fight? Hard to tell with the level of foes he has faced thus far.
It is clear that the Freddie Roach trained Shiming has a long way to go in perfecting the professional style of boxing. While HBO will be broadcasting this bout, WBA and WBO 122lb champion Guillermo Rigondeaux (13-0, 8 KOs) fights on the undercard against Sod Kokietgym (63-2-1, 28 KOs). However his fight will be shown later in the evening on Unimas (11pm ET/PT), a spanish language network.
RIGO IN HIS LAST FIGHT UNDER TOP RANK
HBO has shown no interest in broadcasting the Cuban born Rigondeaux’s future fights. Labeled by a percentage of the boxing contingent as “boring”, his promoter Top Rank has had difficulty securing serious opponents for the Cuban. It’s obvious that after embarrassing one of their start clients in Filipino star Nonito Donaire (33-2, 21 KOs) last year, the promoter wants to have nothing to do with him. He can be exciting against the right opponents, but his bout against Donaire was the definition of a chess match. Casual fans who watch boxing and view it purely as a blood sport, more than likely don’t appreciate the skills of the former two time Olympic Gold medalist.
UNKNOWNS MAKE HBO UNDERCARD
Instead of the pound for pound talent, the HBO undercard will feature Mexico’s Gilberto Ramirez (28-0, 22 KOs) against New Zealands Junior Talipeau (20-2-1, 7 KOs) in a super middleweight(168lb) contest. Ramirez stopped former middleweight contender Giovanni Lorenzo in 5 rounds in his last outing. With universally recognized super middleweight(168lb) champion Andre Ward (27-0, 14 KOs) on HBO’s payroll, its possible that Ramirez could become a potential opponent if he is successful on Saturday.

GAMBOA CAREER AN INDICTMENT OF 50 CENT
WEIGH IN WAS “TELLING” IN MY MIND
Upon my gazing at the weigh in, I at once noticed the size advantage not only in height, but in body mass. When you look at Gamboa he had the smaller in the arms, chest, shoulders, Crawford (whose spectacular we’ll get to in a second) was at least one weight division, if not two weight classes bigger than Yuri Gamboa.
OLYMPIC GOLD MEDALIST NEVER BEFORE “UNDERDOG”
While the odds were on the side of Crawford, there were “wise guys” who thought Yuri was the better fighter and I know one that backed him with an envelope of cash. Never before in a fight, be it amateur or professional, was the Olympic Gold medalist ever an underdog.

COLD WAR MAY NOT BE AS OVER AS WE THINK
DON’T BE CONFUSED BY THE HYPE!
The issue at heart here was never Arum vs. De La Hoya & Schaefer. Bob Arum’s real adversary is the powerful and mysterious boxing advisor Al Haymon. Many of the men we have been watching fight under the Golden Boy banner are not even signed to the promotional company but are advised by Haymon who has been using Golden Boy to display his stable on TV. The most famous example of this is Floyd Mayweather, who although not contractually tied to Golden Boy has been had his last nine fights (all against Golden Boy fighters) the lead promoter. Other fighters who fall into this category are Adrien Broner, Ishe Smith, Deontay Wilder and others.
HAYMON & SCHAEFER “BETWEEN THE SHEETS”
There are other fighters who are both signed to Golden Boy and advised by Al Haymon. Although I believe that we will see a joint promotion between Golden Boy and Top Rank for the first time in a few years, my money says it will not include any Golden Boy fighters who are managed by Haymon. Included in this category are Amir Khan, Robert Guerrero, Paulie Malignaggi, Peter Quillin, and Marcos Maidana to name a few. The actual amount of Golden Boy fighters who are not backed by Haymon, such as Saul “Canelo” Alvarez and Abner Mares are few. This leads us to point number two.

“RING TALK BOXING” TRIBUTE SHOW
San Francisco, CA- This edition of Ring Talk Boxing” was not the easiest hour of radio I’ve done in in my almost three decades of radio. On this show, we paid tribute to important figures (and my friends) in the boxing world that have left us. With taped interviews, I take you back to former World champion Genaro Hernandez’s last interview a few days before losing a battle to Cancer in June 2011. When I first did this live, I broke up and produced tears.
NICK CHARLES WAS NEVER A “TALKING HEAD”
Having first met ex-CNN & Showtime announcer Nick Charles when he was with CNN in the 1980s, we would cross paths and bounce ideas off one another quite often. This interview was emotional as well, but hey this is live radio.
LORRAINE CHARGIN “LIKE THE MOB” SAID RUSSELL PELTZ
Our last guest was Don Chargin, the Hall of Fame promoter as “Ring Talk” noted it’s been two years (four now) since the “First Lady of Boxing,” the one and only Lorraine Chargin fell victim to Cancer. We ended the show with one of the funniest stories I’ve ever told in boxing. Here’s a hint, it had something to so with sex and an ex-champ! To LISTEN NOW READ MORE…
