Fleeced Your Eyes: Jaime Munguia Stops Spike O’Sullivan

Don’t take this the wrong way, but you’re pretty easy. You get what I’m saying: loose. But consider it a compliment. You’re always down to party. You’re low-maintenance. Agreeable. Even in this modern environment of seemingly endless entertainment options, your viewing standards for a fight are admirably … squishy. When you, the consummate boxing fan, […]

Jaime Munguia, Erik Morales And The Zombie Apocalypse

It’s tempting to view boxing as the ultimate meritocracy. On Forbes’ annual World’s Highest Paid Athletes list, a fighter routinely cracks the top five — and often leads the way, with Floyd Mayweather recently banking nearly a third of a billion dollars in a single calendar year. Social media directly connects fans to fighters, promoters […]

Manny Pacquiao Vs Jessie Vargas And The Rest Of The Week’s Boxing Schedule

If you’re a dude whose name is “Jessie” this weekend — spelled just like that — you’ve got about a 50 percent chance of being in a potentially winnable fistfight that you probably won’t win. Presumably the Disney show starlet, as a lady-person, is at no such risk. Manny Pacquiao vs Jessie Vargas, Saturday, Top […]

Luis Ortiz Impresses (Some); Jessie Vargas Gets Rid Of That Black Cloud

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Let’s do something we don’t do often around these parts. Let’s ask you to set aside the truth of the matter about HBO’s main event Saturday night, which is that it was lackluster matchmaking that wasn’t really worthy of main event status on even a lesser network. Acknowledge the dark truth of it, […]

Round And Round, Featuring What’s Next For Mares, Ward, Cotto And Others

There are some snazzy match-ups in the works right about now, one of which is one of the biggest fights that can happen in boxing anywhere.

Quick Jabs: Klitschko Ratings; PBC Lawsuit; #MayPac Writing; More

There is more to boxing these days than Floyd Mayweather vs Manny Paccquiao, although you might not believe it if this is the site you have mainly visited this week. But there are things happening, oh yes, besides the big ol’ fight Saturday. One of them involves the man in the photo above. TQBR is […]

Quick Jabs: Ratings Galore, Great Knockouts, Swell Fights

Wouldn’t that headline just convince you everything was A-OK in boxing? Well you’d be wrong, is what you’d be. But there are some fine things, like that Amir Mansour knockout above. It’s in the KO of the Year discussion with another recent knockout, Wladimir Klitschko-Kubrat Pulev. We’ll have some other videos sprinkled throughout this edition […]

(Sadam Ali warms up before facing Luis Carlos Abregu; via @hboboxing on Twitter) ATLANTIC CITY — Sadam Ali fucked up Luis Carlos Abregu Saturday night, stopping him in the 9th, a result foreseen by no one. The young, unproven ex-Olympian was making a huge step up by taking on the dangerous welterweight puncher, a step perhaps […]

Hopkins Vs. Kovalev Running Undercard Results

ATLANTIC CITY — It might be a dying town, but AC has some life this weekend, even with the always-frigid November ocean breeze freezing those roaming the Boardwalk. The main event of the HBO broadcast is, naturally, the big attraction right now. The truly compelling bout between light heavyweights Bernard Hopkins and Sergey Kovalev is still […]

Bernard Hopkins Vs. Beibut Shumenov Running Undercard Results

WASHINGTON, D.C. — A feisty and energetic 1st round saw Paulie Malignaggi bleeding early and vaseline slung from Shawn Porter’s face. A little wild and frenetic, both men opened up early and found success in an entertaining bout. In round 2 the two welterweights fought on even terms, but the latter’s punches were doing more damage.
