Manny Pacquiao Retirement Roundtable Career Retrospective

One of the best ever, Manny Pacquiao, retired this week. He ends his 26-year career with a record of 62-8-2. The TQBR gang examines him and his legacy.   What was the first time you saw Manny Pacquiao fight, and what was your impression of him? Tim Starks:  It was the Lehlo Ledwaba fight he […]

Mid Year After Action Report and Round Table Discussion

July kind of drags. For most of us, it’s hotter than Satan’s taint, and everything tends to find itself in a bit of a holding pattern. Typically there aren’t a lot of fight cards either. So, in what has been a surprisingly entertaining year to date, now feels like the exact right time to take […]

The Six Weirdest Things Jim Lampley Has Cried About

Let’s just get this out of the way right off the bat: It’s OK to cry. It’s good to cry. I’m crying right now, mostly about Verne Troyer’s death and how I never got to prove my theory that with enough duct tape and personal lubricant you could fit him inside a Pringles can. But […]

The Liver Punch: Where’s This Going?

I’m relatively certain that I’ve never written anything complimentary about Vanes Martirosyan. In fact, I’ve probably never given any in or out of the ring action of his more than a perfunctory eye roll. But it’s been a slow couple of weeks and fuck it, here we are. Yesterday, Martirosyan went on a miniature Twitter […]

Spence Vs Algieri Results: Spence Demolishes Algieri

Errol Spence didn’t look like hype. Now we know he isn’t. The top prospect in the world in any division stepped up big-time in competition to face Chris Algieri (above right), and handled him like a bulldog on a Beanie Baby. Algieri lasted the distance against Manny Pacquiao, gave Amir Khan all he could handle […]

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 […]

Rearviewmirror: A Look Back At Boxing In 2015

2015 was a strange year for boxing. Like “Charles In Charge,” we took a lot of “bad” to go with the “good.” We got huge fights like Floyd Mayweather vs Manny Pacquiao, free fights like Keith Thurman vs Robert Guerrero, and no fights like Showtime. New stars emerged, while some faded away before our eyes. Lineal […]

When The Devil Answers The Door: Amir Khan Just Might Get What He Wants

Amir Khan has been pounding on doors for awhile. He spent years chasing the best boxer in the eorld, Floyd Mayweather, to no avail. In fact, Mayweather seemed to revel in dangling a possible fight in front of Khan, only to rip it away like the school bully holding some poor kid’s lunch just out […]

Floyd Mayweather’s Next Fight: Easy, Hard Or Somewhere In The Middle?

Floyd Mayweather is out there making his usual headlines by saying some stuff that is designed to make headlines, this time about who he might fight next. Some of the potential opponents have put their own names in the mix. Let’s consider the contenders. And let’s rate them on a scale of one to five […]

Losses Gained: The Odd Redemption Of Chris Algieri

There was a fact forgotten underneath all the avocado and spandex jokes — Chris Algieri can actually fight. He reiterated that fact for us Friday night on Spike TV against Amir Khan. Algieri was last seen getting bounced around the ring and beaten up badly by Manny Pacquiao last November. The majority of fans and […]

Chris Algieri Gets Another Shot To Cash In As The Underdog

Chris Algieri had a really, really bad night against Manny Pacquiao the last time he was in the ring. There’s no shame in that; Pacquiao has given plenty of great fighters plenty of bad nights. But Algieri has bounced back to a headlining spot on TV, and Friday night on Spike’s “Premier Boxing Champions” broadcast, […]
