Federer and the Punch

Once a year, I let tennis into my life. I’m reluctant to do so. Wimbledon catches my attention for its entire duration but I don’t like the way competitors are feted for their “stamina” and “courage.” Yes, the levels of fitness they obtain are impressive, and yes it can be difficult to play on when losing, but these are well paid elite athletes in pursuit of cash money. And nobody is punching them in the face while they submit to their cardio exam. There is a video on YouTube on the legendary Rafael Nadal...

Berkow Shined Ringside

Taking nothing away from baseball, football, basketball, or hockey, it seems no sport lends itself to gifted wordsmiths like boxing does. The list of notable writers who have spent time ringside in front of a typewriter, word processor or laptop include such giants as Norman Mailer, George Plimpton, Red Smith, Jimmy Cannon, W.C. Heinz, A.J. Liebling, Mark Kram, William Nack, John Schulian, George Kimball, Larry Merchant, Thomas Hauser, Vic Ziegel, Phil Berger, Pat Putnam, Richard Hoffer, and Jerry Izenberg, to name but a handful.

Getting Hit in the Face

When is enough enough? Or rather, when it is too much? As a fan of boxing, we all love the wars. Gatti-Ward, Bowe-Holyfield, Corrales-Castillo, and so many others. We want to see fighters give and take. To show what we consider courage, and if they are going to go down, we want to see them do so on their shield. That’s the nature of the beast and no one needs to apologize for it. Not a fighter, nor a fan. There are thousands of other interests and pursuits one could take up should they be squeamish. I do however get troubled with how...

Happy 4th! Here's An Idea Inspired By Independence Day--Floyd on Free TV

We are heading to July 4, also known as Independence Day here in America. Traditionally, many hot dogs and hamburgs are consumed, many fingers are blown off in firework mishaps at home. Many folks don't stop and ponder the meaning of the day; this federal holiday celebrates our forming and passing of our Declaration of Independence…basically, when we dumped gal-pal Great Britain and proclaimed we'd be better of single, playing the field. In honor of this holiday, I have a suggestion, on how to make it boxing themed. This particular...

Diego De La Hoya Kos Tijuana’s Jose Estrella in L.A.

LOS ANGELES- Diego De La Hoya (11-0, 7 Kos) expected a competitive fight but immediately took control over Tijuana’s Jose Estrella (14-7-1, 10 Kos) with jabs and combinations and eventually opened up the artillery to win by knockout on Thursday. LA Fight Club and a crowded arena saw De La Hoya continue his road toward contention in the super bantamweight division and other prospects too at the Belasco Theater. For two rounds there was little resistance from Estrella but when he did return fire it allowed De La Hoya to unload his potent...

Collazo, Facing Thurman July 11, Uses Doubters' Critiques As Fuel

Outside looking in, this July 11 fight is the most meaningful of Luis Collazo's 15 year pro career. He meets Keith Thurman July 11, on ESPN, in Florida, and a loss to the Floridian Thurman, it could be a neon sign that it's over. No shame in that; man has been doing this for more than half his life, boxing. He's won a crown, acquitted himself well against solid boxers. But he's not into entertaining those thoughts. I asked the 36-6 Brooklyner, back from two weeks of dialed in training in Puerto Rico, if he sees the Thurman clash as an...
