Sergio Martinez Back To The Gym In March

One of my all-time faves from a personal standpoint, ultra-gent Sergio Martinez, who took up the sport at age 20 and was able to refine his technique to become a pound for pound top tenner, still has boxing in his blood, and will be testing out his body to see if his vessel matches that level of competitive fire which still courses through the 39-year-old Argentina native. You’ll recall things didn’t go swimmingly for Maravilla (51-3-2) on June 7, when he put his WBC 160 pound belt up for grabs against Miguel Cotto, in a Super Fight which...

Deontay Wilder Could Do First Defense In His Backyard of 'Bama

Manager/co-trainer Jay Deas has been dealing with an annoying but sort of enjoyable at the same time issue: the man’s voice mail has crashed three times, because of the overload of calls from well wishers, calling him and telling him they loved what Deas’ kid Deontay Wilder (33-0 with 32 KOs) did on Jan. 17. Wilder, the XXL beanpole from ‘Bama, showed a brand of boxing, fighting in retreat, jabbing like he was getting paid per the jab, marshaling energy smartly, that nobody much outside of his entourage knew he could. But of course,...

The Hauser Report: January Notes

The most interesting action in boxing often takes place outside the ring. There have been developments on both sides of the ropes in January 2015 that are worthy of comment. * * * The Al Haymon Era officially began this month when Haymon Boxing, armed with a reported $100,000,000 war chest in venture-capital funds, put the finishing touches on two time buys. NBC Sports announced on January 14 that it had entered into an agreement with Haymon that provides for twenty fight telecasts in 2015...

Whereas the actor dropped 30 pounds to play Nightcrawler sociopath Lou Bloom, he...

RINGSIDE REPORT: Rios Demolishes Alvarado

Broomfield, CO: Brandon Rios dominated and stopped Mike Alvarado in just three rounds on Saturday night at the 1stBank Center in Broomfield, Colorado. The bout, which many folks thought and certainly hoped would be a continuation of the frequently thrilling and savage action seen in their first two scraps, was televised live on HBO. The fight was promoted by Top Rank as a “welterweight championship,” a considerable feat since neither man is a current titleholder in any division. But the WBO came through to offer it’s international...

Rios vs. Alvarado III--What Happened...Really?

Saturday evening in Broomfield, Colorado, Jim Lampley stood in front of the HBO cameras alongside Andre Ward and tried to make sense of the disdain shown to Mike Alvarado by his supposed hometown fans. They were, as we all were, expecting another Excedrin inducing blood and guts slugfest complete with lacerations, broken teeth, as well as broken faces. As it turns out, Mike's trilogy with Brandon "Bam Bam" Rios turned out to be no more than a triumvirate of as many rounds in a completely one sided affair. Perhaps "Mile High" Mike's outside...

Brandon Rios Makes Mike Alvarado Quit on His Stool After Three

In the HBO Main Event, Brandon “Bam Bam” Rios (32-2-1 with 22 KOs) went into “Mile High” Mike Alvarado’s (34-3 with 23 KOs) Denver, Colorado backyard and thoroughly dominated the hometown favorite. Rios hammered Alvarado all around the ring in a complete and shocking mismatch to take the vacant WBO Welterweight title. To illustrate how one sided the fight was, Compubox had Rios landing 120 punches to Alvarado’s 20. This was the highly anticipated rubber match between these two action fighters. Rios took their first scrap by 7th...
