De La Hoya Is Firm=No Comeback For Me

He's apparently been flirting with the prospect, and went public with it a couple weeks ago, leaving the door open to fight again, for the first time since December 2008. But after pondering, and discussions with loved and trusted ones, Oscar De La Hoya has decided to stay retired.The 43-in-February-year-old promoter last scrapped in 2008, in a holiday-season disaster; the outing, against Manny Pacquiao, didn't go well. Pacman handled a drained De La Hoya easily and Oscar read the writing on the ring post: no more. He hung up the gloves,...

Melson Visits Congress To Lobby For Stem Cell Trials

New York, NY (June 28, 2015) – When Dr. Patricia Morton, Dr. Wise Young and Captain Boyd “Rainmaker” Melson presented their case to Congress at a briefing in Washington, DC they had one goal in mind. The goal, which has been the focal point of Melson’s life since meeting Christan Zaccagnino 13 years ago, is to see her walk again. Zaccagnino suffered a diving accident as a child that left her paralyzed from the waist down and has been confined to a wheelchair ever since. A major step for Zaccagnino being able to potentially walk...

The Fifty Greatest Light-Heavyweights of All Time Part Five – Nos. 10-1

If I have given the impression that I have been a little disappointed in the depth of talent at light-heavyweight, those thoughts can now be banished. Here is a top ten that very nearly put itself together. Harold Johnson drew the short straw and washed up at #11 but him aside there were really no suitors for the top ten that are not ranked within it. Here be dragons. So listen. This, is how I have it: #10 – MATTHEW SAAD MUHAMMAD (49-16-3) It is both strange and surprising that Matthew Saad Muhammad, born Matt Franklin, has so few in...

Bradley Vs. Vargas--Hearing Things

It's boxing. Stranger things have and yet still continue to happen. We shouldn't act so surprised anymore at rotten decisions, feigning shots to the child factory region or anything else that draws our respective ire. To the trained eye or at least to the purest administrator of the eye test, the final ten seconds of Saturday evening's welterweight clash between Tim "Desert Storm" Bradley and Jessie "El Nuevo Generacion" Vargas was more a case of a seasoned referee slightly cracking under pressure as opposed to displaying his usual grace...

Bradley Beat Vargas And There's No Controversy

On Saturday night, welterweight Timothy Bradley 32-1-1 (12) won the interim WBO title belt that Floyd Mayweather recently vacated. Bradley accomplished the feat by getting the better of Jessie Vargas 26-1 (9), who entered the bout undefeated. The fight went the distance and when it was over Bradley won by unanimous decision via the scores 116-112, 177-111 and 115-112. I scored it 117-110 and only gave Vargas two rounds, the second and the 12th. The Bradley-Vargas bout was pretty spirited with some decent exchanges. However, the...

AVILA RINGSIDE: Tim Bradley Survives Again at StubHub

CARSON, CALIF.-A premature stoppage to terminate the fight allowed Tim “Desert Storm” Bradley to ride out the storm in the final round against Jessie Vargas and win by unanimous decision on Saturday. Bradley (32-1-, 12 KOs) was cruising along in front of a crowd of 4,711 at the StubHub Center until the final round when an overhand right from Vargas (26-1, 9 Kos) nearly ended the fight. Soon after referee Pat Russell thought he heard the bell and stopped the fight seven seconds short of the actual final bell. “I thought I heard the...

Bradley An Ace, Till Late in 12th; Weird Ending Mars HBO Main Event

Tim Bradley wanted to prove he's still an A grade guy and Jessie Vargas wanted to show he's a big stage fighter on Saturday night. The two squared off in Carson, CA., at Stub Hub, and on HBO. It was Bradley who proved his point, with violent intensity and surety; his sturdy physique and non-stop aggression had Vargas on the back foot, mentally and physically. There were no knockdowns, and it wasn't a beat-down, but Bradley was quite impressive. Till the last part of the 12th...when Bradley got caught by a right as he was throwing. He was...

Oscar Valdez Looks Solid in UD10 W Over Tamayo

In the HBO TV opener from the Stub Hub Center in Carson, CA., Oscar Valdez, who promoter Top Rank hopes is a future star who will appeal to the Mexican set, beat Ruben Tamayo, via UD10. No drama as we awaited the cards..98-90, 98-90, 99-90 for Valdez. Overall, he looked solid, didn't make anyone lose their mind in anticipation of seeing him again..Solid prospect at this point, one whose power might be a tick less than some thought he possessed. The Mexico resident Valdez (15-0), age 24, was 127 pounds, and Tamayo (25-5-4 entering; from...

Jailhouse Rock: Ruenroeng vs. Casimero Report

Amnat Ruenroeng’s backstory has been a source of fascination for those western journalists and fight-fans interested in the more obscure corners of the fistic globe. Ruenroeng appeals to the old-school in all of us; ex-con makes good in the most savage of noble pursuits, what would have become of him without boxing? People eat that stuff for lunch. Sometimes though, boxing doesn’t remove the jailhouse from the fighter so much as enhance it. Think Tyson and the ear or Liston and that probable dive in Maine. Usually though, the jailhouse...

Congrats, HBO Crew, On Your 1,000th Fight

We are a quite discerning breed, we fight fans. We love to watch fights, and analyze, and dissect before, during, and after the combat. Probably some tie-in between our attraction to this sport, which features extreme savagery and valor, and our penchant for critique and debating.. but we will leave that to better psychological analysts than me... I do think lost in our dissector mode is a mood of appreciation for the stronger elements present in the sport. Such as, I think we are pretty fortunate that by and large, for decades now, HBO...
