TQBR Roundtable, Manny Pacquiao Vs Tim Bradley III Edition

It’s a big(ish) fight week so we’ve done what we always do, and got the team together for a big chat about it. Pacquiao vs Bradley III might have all the buzz of a fart in a bathtub, but we’re on it anyway. Are you at all interested in Pacquiao vs Bradley III? Sam Sheppard: Yes, […]

Andre Ward, Kell Brook And The Rest Of The Week’s Boxing Schedule

Andre Ward? Now there’s a name I haven’t heard in a long time. Sometimes being a boxing fan feels like being a forgotten jedi master, but never fear — TQBR is here to keep you updated with the latest developments in the boxing galaxy. Andre Ward vs Sullivan Barrera, Saturday, HBO, Oakland. A full nine […]

David Lemieux and Zab Judah And The Rest Of The Week’s Boxing Schedule

My man David Lemieux (pictured) is back after getting beaten down by Gennady Golovkin last year. That’s good news, because the dude is exciting and pretty game. In action elsewhere is the husk of Zab Judah. Guillermo Rigondeaux was meant to be fighting the outclassed James Dickens on the other side of the pond in what […]

Carl Frampton, Scott Quigg, Leo Santa Cruz And The Rest Of The Week’s Boxing Schedule

It’s boxing, so of course after weeks and week of virtually nothing on television, there are head-to-head cards on the two major premium cable networks this weekend. When it rains… Carl Frampton vs Scott Quigg, Saturday, Showtime Extreme, Manchester. This long-awaited match-up of British junior featherweight contenders is easily the fight of the week, and thankfully Showtime have picked […]

Fedor Chudinov, Diego De La Hoya And The Rest Of The Week’s Boxing Schedule

Happy (belated) Valentine’s Day. Please take this weird as fuck billboard from Sofia, Bulgaria as a gift (via r/boxing). Nothing says “I love you” like Tyson Fury, after all. Though there are plenty of fights on the boxing schedule this week, it’s virtually all prospects and journeymen. The sole exception is Russia’s Fedor Chudinov, a […]

Jamel Herring And The Rest Of The Week’s Boxing Schedule

It’s a really dead time for televised boxing right now; the biggest show of the week is a “Premier Boxing Champions” card headlined by lightweight prospect and 2012 Olympian Jamel Herring. That’s really it, more or less. Jamel Herring vs Luis Eduardo Flores, Tuesday, FS1/Fox Deportes, Bethlehem Pa. Herring, 30, is a former marine: expect to […]

The Boxer, The Journalist And The Narcos

In a saga worthy of a telenovela, Mexico’s greatest-ever boxer has spent the last week denying allegations that he has laundered money for drug traffickers. “The boxer Julio Cesar Chavez was friend of, and alleged money launderer for, organised crime groups in Sinaloa,” wrote columnist Ricardo Alemán in El Universal on January 20. Alemán alleged that Chavez, 53, was […]

The Week’s Boxing Schedule, Featuring Sergey Kovalev And Jean Pascal

This week’s boxing schedule is brought to you by nightmarish Soviet-era anti-boxing claymation.  You’re welcome. Sergey Kovalev vs Jean Pascal, Saturday, HBO, Montreal. Not sure what we’re meant to learn from this light heavyweight rematch, since Russian destroyer Kovalev put a nasty beating on Pascal last time out. Maybe he can really challenge himself by doing […]

The Week’s Boxing Schedule, Featuring Danny Garcia And Robert Guerrero

Boxing is picking up in 2016 where it left off in 2015 — with fights of questionable quality and possible hidden gems. The “biggest” fight of the week, Danny Garcia vs Robert Guerrero on “Premier Boxing Champions” on Fox, definitely falls into the former category, but there’s a few of the latter to read on about […]
