Gatekeepers and Journeymen: Otto Wallin UD12 Dominic Breazeale

EXTRA! EXTRA! The big, dopey heavyweights are back! Man do I love me a good, jiggly-titted heavyweight slap-fest. Dudes who look like your middle school gym teacher, or your dad’s friend Rick, just throwing slow-motion bombs without a care in the world beyond wrapping things up before Arby’s closes. The kind where guys hike their […]

Palooka Politicos: The 2020 Presidential Candidates If They Were Fighters

Sometimes, the forming of a more perfect union requires the separation of a rib or three. At least that’s what our politicians would have us believe. Bureaucrats, wonks, and snake-oil salesmen love nothing more than co-opting the language of boxing (“I’ll fight for you!”), but believe it or not, some pols have actually gone so […]

WBSS And Deontay Wilder vs Dominic Breazeale After Action Report

I’ll leave it to you to decide which one of us is which, but the TQBR boys are back for an interrogation session about the previous weekend’s goings-on, so with no further ado, light a smoke, gimp down the sidewalk and get to reading you sonsabitches. Naoya Inoue was clearly created in a lab by […]

Identity Crisis: Deontay Wilder Blows Out Dominic Breazeale

If you attempted to reach Deontay Wilder this week and were unsuccessful in doing so, it’s because the hulking heavyweight was busy rounding off the edges of the manufactured personality he would try out for the build-up to his fight with Dominic Breazeale (20-2, 18 KO) on Saturday night at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn […]

The Liver Punch: Content Quotas

It’s an unwritten rule in life that after anything unexpected happens, many of those who viewed it will spend an inordinate amount of time on the autopsy. They will generally be looking for those little nuggets of information that went unseen. Because if they’d had all the facts, they never would’ve been surprised. This is […]

At Least It Was Free: Deontay Wilder KOs Gerald Washington

I started this write-up by looking for a synonym for “clumsy.” I didn’t find one that fit, unfortunately. Tonight at the Legacy Arena in Birmingham, Ala. on Premier Boxing Champions on Fox, Deontay Wilder (38-0, 37 KO) notched another victory to the thrill of his local crowd (everything is local in Alabama, trust me). Wilder scored […]

Anthony Joshua Keeps Wrecking Fringe Contenders

For the second fight in a row, heavyweight talent Anthony Joshua put a fringe contender in a vice and exploded him. In Saturday’s fight on Showtime, the vice was applied slowly, but he kept the pressure on until Dominic Breazeale crumpled along the ropes in the 7th round. The difference between Breazeale and Joshua’s last […]

Danny Garcia Scratches By Robert Guerrero

It’s not a Danny Garcia fight unless he scrambles up “unimpressive” with “victory.” And Saturday on Fox, Garcia spent the first half of his bout with Robert Guerrero being unimpressive, only to take over thereafter and remind folk why we once viewed the welterweight as a potential top 10 pound-for-pound fighter. He came away with […]

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 […]

The Week’s Boxing Schedule, Featuring Deontay Wilder And Shinsuke Yamanaka

(picture via) “And the little ones shall lead them.” Where was that said? The Bible? Nostradamus in “Les Propheties?” Nowhere, you say? It’s the story of this week on the boxing schedule, regardless. One of the world’s biggest and best heavyweights is in action, albeit in a letdown match-up, while people under 120 pounds will […]

Robert Guerrero Beats Aron Martinez, No Longer Looks Like A Contender

Robert Guerrero won a controversial split decision Saturday on NBC, the kind that is damning because of whom he did it against. Aron Martinez was there to restore Guerrero to the win column, pure and simple, and instead it was a bruising fight — in its tone, and literally, on each man’s face — that Guerrero […]
