2010-2019 Fighter Of The Decade: Floyd Mayweather

For better or worse — really, for better AND for worse — Floyd Mayweather cast a long shadow over the 2010s. This is the cultural impact of Mayweather in the decade: Among those who find him generally reprehensible, it’s easy to forget that Mayweather didn’t break all those pay-per-view buy records simply because those who […]

The Liver Punch: Whose Story Are You Telling?

My undergraduate mentor always starts a piece of advice with, “My boy…” I’m 35 and he still does it. He spoke to me that way when I was a precocious 18 year old hell bent on fucking up his own life. He said it to me when I was a driven, if utterly directionless, 23 […]

The Liver Punch: It’s Not Easy To Let Go

I’m normally not the guy to tell another adult what to do with their professional life, but every once in a while, you just watch something and cringe. Last weekend, on the undercard of Robert Guerrero’s loss to actual fucking cab driver David Peralta, we were treated to Alfredo Angulo wandering aimlessly after Freddy Hernandez […]

Quick Jabs: Who’s Afraid?; Jean Pascal Gets Racial; Poor Yuriorkis Gamboa

What in the living fu-. How is welterweight Danny Garcia regularly doing some of the best ratings that the “Premier Boxing Champions” series ever has done, even against Robert Guerrero in a match-up that not many people viewed as particularly competitive? I guess people like unconventional hairlines, cuz LeBron James is popular, too. It’s almost as […]

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 […]

But Honestly: Angel Garcia Is A Truth Teller

Finally, somebody said it. It’s out there now. For those of you who haven’t seen it, Angel Garcia, father of undefeated welterweight Danny Garcia, expressed his confusion to fighthype.com over just why in the hell Shawn Porter and Keith Thurman, two young, talented welterweights, would want to fight each other. FOR GOD’S SAKE, ONE OF […]

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 […]

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 […]

Luis Collazo Will Dine In Hell Saturday Night Vs Keith Thurman

It’s one thing to be the underdog, it’s another for people to fear for your health. But that’s where Luis Collazo will soon find himself — staring across the ring from a bad, bad man. Saturday night, on the debut of “Premier Boxing Champions” on ESPN, he’ll be fighting Keith “One Time” Thurman, a young, […]

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 […]

Man Vs Ghost: Robert Guerrero Gets A Tune-Up

Robert Guerrero needs a win. Badly. He’s lost two of his last three, albeit against some pretty nasty welterweight competition named Keith Thurman, Yoshihiro Kamegai and Floyd Mayweather. He lost basically every second to Mayweather, but gutted out a win 13 months later against Kamegai, who is a badass. In his first fight for Al […]
