Co-Pugilistic Pride of Costa Rica, Bryan Vasquez, Seeks Title Friday

Not a boxing hot-bed, Costa Rica. Actually, sort of an under-appreciated region, I'd say. How often do us lunkheads mistake it for Puerto Rico, does it get called an island, are people unable to locate it on a map? Well, the map thing will get a tiny tick better should the top (male) fighter from CR, Bryan Vasquez, impress on Friday night, and get the better of Dominican power-puncher Javier Fortuna, in Brooklyn, and on SPIKE…. The 34-1 (18 KOs) Vasquez, a 27-year-old hitter who is married to the 14-1-1 professional Hannah Gabriel, the...

Will Amir Khan Trip, Crack His Head on the Pavement?

The healthiest of us wake up and visualize the day’s events. We remind ourselves to be on time for that important meeting or that we need to get to the flower shop to pick up roses for our loved one, as it’s our anniversary. This is a skill called anticipation. Folks tend to get in trouble when they struggle to overcome the anxiety of the impending event and this anxiety impacts the smaller steps necessary to get to the business meeting or the flower shop. They miss the small steps so much so that they did not look into their train...

Rest in Peace, Michael King

Boxing lost a true believer today, a backer of amateurs and pros, a man who believed the past glories and positive attributes of the sport could be resurrected. Michael King, who headed up King Sports Worldwide, a promotional outfit based in California, died on Wednesday, at age 67. A source close to King, who didn't want to be named, said King was not ill, and characterized the passing as sudden. The businessman was not merely a player in the boxing scene; along with late brother Roger, he created King World Productions, Inc., the most...

The Fifty Greatest Light-Heavyweights of All Time Part One - 50-41

Constructing a top 100 pound-for-pound was a difficult task, but far more tortuous was my attempt last year to construct a top 100 at heavyweight. The workload of research and footage was no heavier, but I had overlooked the fact that the distinction between fighters ranked even twenty places apart would be tiny; in some cases almost meaningless. Or at least, that was the case where the lower order was concerned. The top fifty was more cohesive. This was encouraging, and probably rescued my determination to construct thorough ATG lists for...

Floyd Mayweather - Three Strikes and Still Not Out

We’re in this together all the way until our cable bill arrives. One hundred dead presidents to see what was supposed to be the fight to not only put boxing back on the sporting map, but to keep it there as well. It's only a matter of days until we hear just how many pay per view buys were registered to view last Saturday's long awaited matchup between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao. The fight itself met nowhere near the expectations of well, millions of the paying public. Should last weekend's bout undoubtedly eclipse all previous...

Some Connected The Dots Before Mayweather-Pacquiao

I tried to sound the alarm bell in this space on the inevitable clash between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao, at each stage, for literally years. Today everyone is all over the place saying that the Mayweather-Pacquiao fight was a waste of time and money. Those saying such things are rightly upset because there's a chance Manny Pacquiao 57-6-2 (38) may have gone into the fight with an injured shoulder. They're also mad and disillusioned that the fight wasn't competitive and didn't come close to meeting its expectations. And to those...

Postfight Presser Report: Mayweather Is Boastful, Edgy, Defiant

At the postfight presser, held in the arena, with the principals in the ring, Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao talked about their clash at the MGM, and both touched on what comes next for each. Pacman said thanks for coming and that he did his best, "but my best wasn't good enough." The loser, via UD12, said he didn't want to make any alibis because of what he went through in camp. "I thought I won but I have to review it when I go back to my hotel to see what's happening," he said. "I respect Floyd Mayweather, he's fast, he's a good...

The Superfight Without a Heart

The question often asked in the buildup to Mayweather vs. Pacquiao was whether this richest of all prizefights could give a boost to boxing’s future by living up to the glories of its past. As May 2 approached, the anticipation reminded many of the 1980s, when the mega-million “superfights” got started with a series of bouts between the so-called Four Kings—Sugar Ray Leonard, Roberto Duran, Thomas Hearns, and Marvin Hagler. Leonard and Hearns fought each other in two cliffhangers eight years apart; Hearns vaporized Duran with a...
