Elena "Baby Doll” Reid and Seven Others to be new Hall of Fame Members

When Elena “Baby Doll” Reid first put on punching gloves it was to try taekwondo. “Kicking people hurts,” says Reid. So instead of taekwondo, she took the route of boxing. “My trainer said you hit pretty hard I’m going to turn you pro,” recalls Reid. “I said ‘awesome.’ I was a senior in high school.” Elena “Baby Doll” Reid was among those selected to the International Women’s Boxing Hall of Fame recently in Tijuana, Mexico. Others nominated were Anne Marie Saccurato, Sumya Anani, Britt Van Buskirk, Jane Couch,...

RICHIE GIACHETTI (1940-2016) – BOXING LOSES ANOTHER UNFORGETTABLE CHARACTER

Part of the appeal of boxing always has been its clique of rowdy, raucous, wrong-side-of-the-track guys. “Damon Runyon” characters, they were called, when every newspaper reader knew who the great sports writer Damon Runyon was, and what kind of mischievous miscreants the celebrated wordsmith loved to chronicle. An increasingly exclusive club became even more so Wednesday in Cleveland when longtime trainer Richie Giachetti, best known for his work with heavyweight champions Larry Holmes and Mike Tyson, passed away after an extended...

In Honor of Super Bowl 50 We Look Back At the Pugilistic Adventures Of Ed "Too Tall" Jones

Ed “Too Tall” Jones was a whale of a football player. The first overall pick in the 1974 NFL Draft, the six-foot-nine defensive end spent 15 seasons with the Dallas Cowboys. A three-time Pro Bowl selection, Jones appeared in three Super Bowls. He was one of the cornerstones of the Dallas team that defeated the Denver Broncos 27-10 in Super Bowl XII. Jones played in 232 NFL games, the most of any Dallas player. The number would have been higher if he hadn’t missed an entire season while off on a quixotic quest to become the next...

Undefeated Randy Caballero and Frankie Gomez Fighting Scales and Opponents

Randy Caballero and Frankie Gomez have a lot in common: both are undefeated Southern California fighters that failed to make weight the last time they entered the boxing ring. No matter how mighty, one of the cruelest endeavors in all individual combat sports is making weight. Whether it’s a flyweight or a heavyweight, getting on those scales can be the most revealing aspect in prizefighting. So many past champions were defeated on the weight scales; guys like Jose Luis Castillo, Joan Guzman or the late Diego Corrales had problems with...

Canelo-Khan: Great For The Fighters, Disaster For The Fans

Boxing fans, if you haven't grasped it by now you've been asleep at the wheel. The signing of Saul "Canelo" Alvarez 46-1-1 (32) and Amir Khan 31-3 (19) for May 7th should confirm it beyond all doubt...boxing is a business first, above all else. No, that's not taking anything away from the fighters, they're without a doubt some of the toughest and in many instances the nicest people you'll ever meet. However, none of them fight strictly for the fun of it. Granted, they love mixing it up but it's not something they'd do with regularity if...

Saul “Canelo” Alvarez vs Amir Khan Set for May 7th

The new T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas Nevada will host a catchweight showdown at 155 lbs between Mexican superstar Saul “Canelo” Alvarez and England’s Amir Khan. The fight will air on HBO PPV in the United States. The signing answers one of boxing’s biggest questions, and that is “who will ‘Canelo’ be fighting on Cinco de Mayo weekend?” The truth is that the negotiations were a well-kept secret, as the bout was not one that had made the boxing rumor mill to date. The match signals the return of Khan to the...

So Much For Roach Making a Difference with Pascal

. After watching Sergey Kovalev's methodical dismantling of Jean Pascal for the second time in 10 months this past Saturday night - we found that the more things change the more they stay the same. Last March Kovalev 29-0-1 (26) stopped the game and determined Pascal 30-4-1 (17) in eight rounds to retain his three light heavyweight title belts. Pascal, after defeating undefeated Yunieski Gonzalez by decision last July, enlisted the help of new trainer and supposed miracle worker Freddie Roach to help him prepare for his rematch with...

"I can lick any son of a bitch alive" - John L. Sullivan On October 15th, 1858John L. Sullivanwas born in South Boston. Sullivan holds a special place in boxing lore, as he is considered to have been the Heavyweight Champion of the World in the 1880's when the existing London Prizefighting Rules started to give way to the Marquis de Queensberry rules. For the laymen, Sullivan, known as "The Boston Strongboy" was champion before there were gloves, and then after there were gloves in boxing he was still...
