BOXING NOT FAIR WITH CURRENT WEIGH INS

March 19th, 2014 By Pedro Fernandez

Floyd Mayweather Is a TRUE Welterweight

Floyd Mayweather Is a TRUE Welterweight

WEIGHTY PROBLEMS IGNORED

San Francisco, CA- This article is the first in what will be a series on some much needed improvements regarding the safety of boxing. This first installment looks at the current system of weighing fighters in the day prior to a fight.

THE NOW “FAKE” WEIGHT CLASSES

Having myself been a big jr. welter (140 lbs), while at the same time an undersized welter (147), nobody was more concerned at most of my weigh ins than yours truly. Once I weighed 143 and change for a welterweight bout in Las Vegas at the Showboat Hotel. Having hit the scale early in the week for the Golden Glove National Regionals, when I looked across the ring five days later at a 165 lb. Ernie Chavez, I thought, “That must be his brother.” After almost beheading me, southpaw Ernie would later rock Meldrick Taylor’s world before losing and then retiring soon thereafter.

ALMOST EVERYBODY NOW DOING WHAT ERNIE DID

With the exception of Floyd Mayweather, Manny Pacquiao, and maybe Grandpa Nard’ Hopkins, just about every professional fighting today at the championship level (except heavyweights) is fighting at least one weight class lighter than what he should be. Example: Jorge Arce was under 112 lbs. for a flyweight title at the weigh in. Time and again Jorge would weigh over 125, sometimes as much as 128 + stepping into the ring. At the same time his foes were coming into the ring circa 115-118. Can you imagine what a ten pound advantage is at that weight?

Gennady Golovkin on “Ring Talk”

SUPER FIGHTER GENNADY GOLOVKIN

San Francisco, CA- There is nothing quite like the “obvious talent” in sports. And to boxing purists everywhere, undefeated middleweight (160 lb.) & WBA titleholder Gennady Golovkin is all that and more made his “Ring Talk” debut Sunday and took questions from readers.

“GGG” WILL FIGHT FLOYD MAYWEATHER AT 154 LBS!

“THE RING WARS” TV SHOW UPDATE

PART II: ALI KILLED IN LAS VEGAS

October 1st, 2013 By Pedro Fernandez

Ali Before The Bell

Ali Before The Bell

SECOND AND FINAL INSTALLMENT

San Francisco, CA- In Part I, I took you through the maze of bull s*it that led up to the October 2, 1980 match between unbeaten heavyweight champion Larry Holmes and Muhammad Ali. The morning of the fight, the Godfather of all boxing writers, Jack Fiske is milling about the lobby of Caesars Palace. Also working the circular bar in the lobby (fight headquarters in those days) was press legend Dick Young when Frank Sinatra and Sammy Davis (and two very unassuming bodyguards) approached the Big Apple columnist.

CAESARS PALACE LOBBY BAR WAS PLACE TO BE

Although the bar was open to the public, the ambiance was such that it made like a private setting. For some reason, only the most fanatical of fans would unknowingly breach the invisible circle of privacy that surrounds celebrities. Joe Frazier was there, as was Ken Norton, Joe Louis in a wheelchair, (all three have now passed) this less than six months away from the April 1981 death of the “Brown Bomber.

PACQUIAO GREAT, BUT QUESTIONS REMAIN

June 27th, 2011 By Pedro Fernandez

Manny "The God" Pacquiao

PAC PULLING RAY LEONARD-LIKE NEGOTIATING

San Francisco, CA- When I asked Donny Lalonde, then the WBC light heavyweight (175 lbs) champion why he was willing to fight “Sugar Ray” Leonard at 168 lbs., a weight he hadn’t seen in a couple of years, he said at the San Francisco Airport Hilton Hotel, “That’s the only way Ray will fight me.” Now while I’m the first to recognize that Manny Pacquiao is a “great” fighter, and let me add there is no doubt that sans the Pacman there would little if any real interest in the fight game right now.

CATCH WEIGHT FIGHTS & THE 400 LB. GORILLA IN ROOM

That being said, the crap Ray pulled on both Donny Lalonde and then again Thomas Hearns (162) in their 1989 rematch that ended in a draw, a fight Ray would later all but admit he lost, is the same s*it Manny is pulling on opponents by having them fight at unnatural weights. Throw out the Antonio Margarito fight, although it was a catch weight of 150 lbs., this for a 154 lb. paper title, as Margarito was a limited brawler who may have won all of his major bouts with “loaded” gloves. But Pac insisted Miguel Cotto scale 145, and rumors have it he will ask his next foe, one Juan Manuel Marquez, a featherweight who unlike Manny never really grew out of the 126 lb. weight class to weigh between 143 and 145!

PAC NEEDS TO TACKLE 400 LB. GORILLA IN RING, NOT COURT!

STRIKEFORCE DOESN’T LIVE UP TO NAME!

June 19th, 2011 By Sammy Perez

Bethlehem, PA- While the name of the game is mixed martial arts, and when the name of your promotion is Strikeforce, you anticipate some action in the form of, well striking. Although strikes, (punches, kicks, knees etc.), were not null and void last night in Strikeforce’s Heavyweight Grand Prix, they didn’t come in abundance either; especially not to the satisfaction of the Dallas, Texas crowd, which I’ll address in a minute.

SEMI FINALS ARE NEXT & WILL BE BETTER!

Nonetheless, the second round of quarterfinal match-ups have finally taken place, albeit four months later, and as expected Alistair Overeem and Josh Barnett (pictured @ left) handled their business. However, it is the way they handled it that is being scrutinized, though I’m not exactly sure why? When you have two match-ups that feature a striker vs. grappler, the outcomes are to be expected.

STRIKEFORCE CHAMP NOW 10-0-1 IN LAST 11 SCRAPS

In the main event, Overeem (35-11, 14 KO’s 19 subs), the reigning Strikeforce heavyweight champion, tried to do his part and finish his opponent Fabricio Werdum (14-5-1, 4 KO’s 8 subs), but READ MORE…
