Gary Russell, Guillermo Rigondeaux Win In Mixed-Results Card

Showtime made a risky decision to headline a doubleheader with A-sides who mainly had in common that they are ultra-talented fighters who routinely disappoint us. Guillermo Rigondeaux is at times virtually unwatchable. Gary Russell Jr. can also rarely be watched, because he fights about once a year — literally so, since 2015. All in all, […]

Deontay Wilder, Chris Arreola, Sammy Vasquez And The Rest Of The Week’s Boxing Schedule

If there’s one thing I can predict with certainty about the week ahead in boxing, it’s that Deontay Wilder’s weird “Eyes Wide Shut” mask will make an appearance. But there’s quite a bit on even apart from the American heavyweight contender’s fight with Chris Arreola (which TQBR’s Jonathan Moreland will be covering live from Alabama), […]

Joseph Diaz Passes The Jayson Velez Test

Joseph Diaz, Jr. had his hands full with Jayson Velez Saturday night on HBO, but not so much that he couldn’t grab a clear decision victory. He’s a talented guy, Diaz, more talented than Velez, and this was his sternest test yet — and a test that revealed he isn’t quite a complete fighter. One […]

They Might Be Giants: Tyson Fury Will Make Wladimir Klitschko Fun For A Night

You know the overused movie plot where the boring, super-uptight guy meets the wild, crazy girl who finally shows him how to let loose and have fun? That’s what Saturday’s heavyweight title fight on HBO between Wladimir Klitschko and Tyson Fury has going for it. Except in this case, the boring dude is the reigning […]

TQBR Radio 12/2: Terence Crawford Vs. Ray Beltran Recap

It’s December in 2014. We’re tired and pessimistic, after 11 months of poor match ups. But like those loveable scamps on that album cover up there (via), maybe we have enough left for one good run before the year is over — one last hurrah before Yoko shuts it all down. We’re fragile, boxing. Don’t […]

Evgeny Gradovich, Jayson Velez Slug Their Way To A Draw In High-Contact Bout

(Jayson Velez, left, Evgeny Gradovich, right; via @HBOBoxing on Twitter) Jayson Velez proved he belonged on the world stage against Evgeny Gradovich, who proved what he always proved, which is that fighting him is one of the most painful outings in boxing. But Gradovich probably deserved a decision win Saturday night on HBO rather than a split […]
