This Century’s Most Badass Boxing Moments

Boxing is the toughest sport. Science says so! That means if you’re doing something really badass in pugilism, you’re multiplications of badass. It’s one thing to be in the toughest sport. It’s a whole ‘nother level to be the most badass within the sport. Just last month, welterweight Shawn Porter delivered a really cool moment […]

It’s Probably Never Going To Happen For Demetrius Andrade

Demetrius Andrade has a deal with DAZN, which is why he was fighting there Saturday night, but more importantly he has a deal with DAZN because DAZN has the two biggest attractions in the middleweight division, champ Canelo Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin. And during his fight with Maciej Sulecki this time out, DAZN’s broadcasting team […]

Roy Jones And The Death Of The Party

Shortly before his death in 2011, Christopher Hitchens said of his impending mortality, “It will happen to all of us, that at some point you get tapped on the shoulder and told, not just that the party’s over, but slightly worse: the party’s going on — but you have to leave. And it’s going on […]

Quick Jabs: Manny Pacquiao On Homosexuality; Good Fights In The Works; More

There are a couple remarkable things about Manny Pacquiao’s recent remarks on homosexuality. His views in opposition to gay marriage were already well-known; that’s not new, and it’s not cool, nor has it ever been. No, what’s remarkable is the virulent nature of how he’s expressed those views lately, and how unrelenting he has been in […]

Antonio Tarver And The End Of Innocence

Boxing reached a new low this week, and for once it wasn’t Roy Jones, Jr. or Floyd Mayweather leading the charge. It may seem incredible, but in a week which saw Jones offer to fight a fan for a $100,000 prize, Mayweather tour the U.K. and charge £70 for a photo and Manny Pacquiao compare […]

Quick Jabs: The Kovalev Vs Stevenson Act; The Tysons; The Triangle

What? Something in boxing was FAKE? You mean that after their hilarious confrontation in the ring on HBO, Sergey Kovalev and Adonis Stevenson were hugging off camera? Shocking. Or is this what’s shocking: That trainer Freddie Roach was the one who alleged the forgery? Roach, who doesn’t even pretend that he’s not bullshitting us half the […]

PBC Weekend Review: Krzysztof Glowacki Vs Marco Huck Takes The Prize

It was another of those weekends where the only U.S.-televised shows came from influential adviser Al Haymon’s mostly-free PBC series, and while much of it was as bland as it looked on paper, we genuinely got one of the better fights of 2015 so far in Krzysztof Glowacki’s upset win over Marco Huck. The highlights: Krzysztof Glowacki […]

Defiant Until The End, Floyd Mayweather Goes Out On His Own Terms

Let’s start here first — this is in no way an endorsement of Floyd Mayweather’s reputed swan song, a Sept. 12 Showtime Pay-Per-View fight against Andre Berto. Far from it. Indeed, this writer’s reaction was part of the collective groan the boxing world let out when serious rumors first started swirling about a possible Mayweather […]

Quick Jabs: Canelo, Golovkin Ratings; Haymon Lawsuit; More

People just can’t get enough cinnamon these days. Quick Jabs We were waiting to talk about the Canelo Alvarez ratings for his fight with James Kirkland until we got more solid info on how much the Floyd Mayweather-Manny Pacquiao replay helped boost it, but there is no solid info on that. What we do know […]

Kid Galahad, One Of Britain’s Most Promising Boxers, Fails PED Test

British tabloid The Daily Star broke a story on Tuesday regarding Kid Galahad – real name Abdul-Bari Awad – who, depressingly, failed a performance enhancing drug test in September after outclassing Brazilian Adeilson Dos Santos. Galahad, 18-0 (9 KOs), a former British, Commonwealth and European champion, tested positive for banned substance stanozolol — an anabolic […]

Mayweather And Pacquiao: The Safe Bet

Manny Pacquiao has been knocked cold, collapsing to the canvas on his face. He laid there motionless in front of millions. A monster defanged. An idol toppled. It is from this dramatic evidence that we can predict the result on May 2. Floyd Mayweather is a more skilled boxer. His defense rivals anyones in history. […]

2014 Boxing Awards Pu Pu Platter, Part II

Sick of the drip-drip-drip of year end boxing awards yet? Hard to blame you, hard to blame you. So we’ll bring out two enormous platters to conclude our 2014 awards. In the first installment, that flavor was heavy and serious. In the second one, that flavor is light and fluffy. Just add “award” at the […]

TQBR Radio 12/16: Amir Khan Vs. Devon Alexander Recap, More

Boxing doesn’t know exactly where “across the street” is, apparently (photo via). But oddly enough, its two major network players, HBO and Showtime, seem to excel in scheduling shows across the street from one another. It was the last fight weekend of a particularly weak 2014 in boxing, so it was fitting that well over […]
