San Francisco, CA– The last time that I picked at a scab in Arizona, it resulted in the Felony conviction of boxing promoter and Top Rank front man Peter McKinn, as well as the ouster of Arizona’s Boxing Director John Montano. You can say they found out, Pedro doesn’t play!

AL HAYMON RISKS BOTH “EMPIRE & CREDIBILITY”

Pictured here in custody, McKinn is one of the “lowest” forms of human life, yes even for the boxing business (look up Panama Lewis). McKinn screwed Ramon “Yory Boy” Campas when he bounced a check to the former IBF 154 lb. guy. Then McKinn suborned Perjury, had Montano illegally pull the license of Campas and manager/trainer Joe Diaz in an elaborate plot that was blown wide open when McKinn admitted everything he had done while being taped by a Phoenix PD informant.

ARIZONA BOXING DIRECTOR VALENZUELA MCKINN’S COUSIN

At a Friday Arizona Commission meeting, McKinn, Montano and Scott Maling, a Phoenix millionaire appeared and requested a promotional date (October 14 ESPN) for Al Hayman’s Premier Boxing Champions. Below is a paragraph from a 2005 article involving the three fistic fleas that are Maling, McKinn and Montano.

BRONER-PORTER ON NBC SATURDAY NIGHT

PEACOCK NETWORK AIRS PREMIER BOXING CHAMPIONS
jkit82
San Francisco, CAAl Haymon and his Premier Boxing Champions have fueled a renaissance of boxing here in the United States, something the “Boxing Establishment” is aghast over. But at the end of the day, did any of the elite promoters, outside of Kathy Duva, try and place professional boxing back on Network TV? No, there were instead making zillions on PPV. Case closed, out with the old and in with the new and that means NBC boxing Saturday prime time with a five star main event.

GREAT MATCHUP LIVE NBC SATURDAY NIGHT

Adrien Broner ( 30-1, 22 KOs) of Cincinnati, OH is considered one of the game’s better technicians and was headed for a mega pay day with Floyd Mayweather before Marcos Maidana canceled his ticket by upsetting Broner. Standing across and looking to get a piece of Broner is also once beaten (25-1-1, 16 KOs) Sean Porter, who dropped his “0” and the IBF 147 lb. diadem to Kell Brook (34-0, 24 KOs) on points in 2014.

HAYMON MATCHES HIS GUYS VS. ONE ANOTHER

Both Broner and Porter are clients of advisor Al Haymon, the Harvard guy that put together $400 million with the sole intent of making boxing more mainstream, a feat he has accomplished by putting a number of cards on NBC, CBS, Tru TV, Spike TV and soon ESPN. Haymon purchases airtime from the networks and hopes to become chummy with the Nielsen ratings, and in time have networks and advertisers giving him airtime and advertising dollars.

BOLD MOVE TOOK BRAINS, GUTS AND $400 MILLION

Main Event’s Kathy Duva tried buying some NBC airtime years ago. Unfortunately her stable was a little light when it came to pugilistic thoroughbreds, thus she couldn’t make a go of it. Why the “Boxing Establishment” put a “Hit” out on “Big Al” and his Premier Boxing Champions in the form of the Assn. of Boxing Commissions asking the Justice Dept. to look under Big Al’s skirt.

BOXING ESTABLISHMENT MAD AS AL PAYS FIGHTERS MORE!

They claim that he is violation of the Muhammad Ali Act in that he is acting both as a promote and a manager, something the law that was watered down by Nevada Sen. Harry Reid, says this is not allowed. There must be two different parties in the roles of “promoter and manager.” Haymon says he is an advisor, and yet Premier Boxing Champions walks, talks and operates like a promoter. The ABC is asking the “G” to go along with their assertions and dismantle PBC for violating Federal law.

CONGRESS HEARING IS HAYMON’S “VICTORY” PARTY

When the ABC brings Haymon to trial or before Congress for a hearing, Al will have every fighter he’s got testify that they are making more money with Al, way more, than they could have elsewhere. Haymon can call Bob Arum of Top Rank as a “hostile” character witness and Arum will be asked, “Did you say that Haymon is paying his fighter’s ridiculous purses,” or something to that effect. Arum would squirm and twist, but eventually he’s have to say that he did!

ARUM COULD BE “BIG AL’S” BEST WITNESS

Haymon takes a flat 10% from his clients as an “advisor.” If you were with Arum, you might be giving up 33% to a manager and have the promoter taking his cut, all the while still having to pay your trainer and taxes. If this gets to Congress, all of these fighters that Haymon is appeasing with fat purses, the boxers and people like Arum will illustrate that the fistic Laborers are happier and getting paid more with Haymon. Case closed, again.

BACK TO THE BRONER-PORTER SKIRMISH

Although Porter has fought as a jr. middle (154), Broner was “chubby” previously at welterweight (147). Cross state rival Porter, who hails from Cleveland can be exploited by speed and combination punching as Brook illustrated, Broner will look to (and need to) stay off of the ropes as Shawn will be looking to “work both hands” up and down vs. a stationary target. And instead of admiring his flashy fists, Broner needs to make this all about his left jab. If he can’t, decision Porter.

SPENCE IN “TOUGH ON PAPER” UNDERNEATH

Errol Spence Jr. is a slick southpaw who most fighters would like to avoid. At 16-0, 13 whacks, Spence is supposed to be tested Saturday by the far more experienced Roberto Garcia (37-3, 23 stops). As was Broner-Porter, Spence-Garcia is a Texas rivalry pitting Dallas vs. Houston. Garcia matches up well in every department except age (35 to 25) and speed. And as we know the vast majority of the time, “Speed” kills in boxing and I’m going with the speed and the pedigree of Spence to prevail.

RON LYLE HAD MUHAMMAD ALI BEAT?

QUESTION SHRINK COULD ANSWER & VIDEO AT END

Ron Lyle

Ron Lyle


Emeryville, CA– If you ever awaken from Anestesia induced slumber, have a pen and paper handy or a cell voice voice recorder. Because if you’re anything like myself, you’ll wake up with a myriad of thoughts and memories, some of which I was able to scribble on the bootom of a tissue box.

“THAT’S CASSIUS CLAY” SAID MY FATHER

Muhammad Ali

Muhammad Ali


The effects were reliving a few of my own fights, waking up like they had just occurred. There was the first time I saw Muhammad Ali, then Cassius Clay in San Francisco’s Herman-Newman’s Gym circa five years of age.

DAD SAID “FOREMAN COULD KILL A MAN”

There was then bully George Foreman, only just 17 and his domination of professional heavyweights in mid 1967, a good year and a half before winning the 1968 Olympic Gold Medal. The admission charge, sometimes in effect was 50 cents.

REMEMBERING ZENITH OF RON LYLE

As is the case with both dreams and going to the amusement park, all you can do is go along for the ride. That being the case, Ron Lyle came to mind. Dont know why as I hadn’t seen the Denver, CO native in a decade or so. But it wasn’t my times with Ron while he was training fighters in Johnny Tocco’s Main Street Gym, this segment of the flashback brought me back to May 1975 and Ron’s challenge of then heavyweight champion Muhammad Ali.

2015 MOST CRITICAL TIME IN BOXING HISTORY

CHANGE IS THE ENEMY OF “BOXING ESTABLISHMENT”

San Francisco, CAPremier Boxing Champions and their leader Al Haymon continue to change boxing as we’ve known it since the Mafia lost it’s stranglehold with the jailing of Blinky Palermo and Frankie Carbo in the 60s. Within a few years boxing went from Mob control to that of a former United States Attorney and Harvard grad in promoter Bob Arum.

SINCE 1965 ARUM #1, 2 OR 3!

Bob Arum and his Top Rank firm promoted epic events, too many to list. With no real competition until the promotional birth of Don King in 1974, Arum and King have both worked together, sued one another, even had a physical altercation at Ray Leonard-Marvin

AFTER 50 YEARS BOXING NEEDS “FACE LIFT”

Sans going into a screed on the pros and cons of Mr. Arum who has: 1) Admitted to Felonies, including Conspiracy, Bribery, Money Laundering. 2) Told Media, “Yesterday I was lying, today I’m telling the truth.” 3) In the biggest fight in history, co-promioter Arum was aware of the fact that an MRI taken a fortnight before Floyd Mayweather-Manny Pacquiao REVEALED that his guy Pacquiao had a “SEVERELY torn right rotator cuff muscle.” Suffice to say these actions are indicative of the need to change the smug face of the Boxing Establishment.

FEW WILL CRY OVER TONY AYALA DEATH

TONY AYALA FOUND DEAD IN TEXAS GYM

Tony Ayala Jr.

Tony Ayala Jr.


San Francisco, CA– Former #1 rated junior middleweight (154 lb.) contender Tony Ayala died Tuesday at the San Antonio gym his late father Tony Ayala Sr. trained fighters for years. And while the cause of death has not been determined, Dr. Fernandez is betting on either a Drug Overdose (Heroin) or a Heart Attack taking him out at 52. Regardless, the planet earth has one less piece of human feces on it.

AYALA “BAD TO THE BONE”

First there was the girl that Tony kicked while she was prone on a San Antonio Drive In movie theater bathroom floor. Why he was in the bathroom with the female was never explained. The results were “cash” being

RAPE ARREST LED TO ROBERTO DURAN-DAVEY MOORE

On New Years Eve 1982-83, Ayala broke in to his neighbor’s home in New Jersey, stuffed his dirty sock in her mouth and then violently tortured and raped her. That put Roberto Duran in Ayala’s place in challenging WBA 154 lb. guy Davey Moore. Getting 15 years in the pokey, Ayala appeared on “Ring Talk Worldwide” and proclaimed he was a “new person.” I will never again dishonor the Ayala name,” said Tony.
