Klitschko – Fury : Mind Games Part 2 : Word Association

DUSSELDORF – Germany continues to adjust and adapt to strains of their admirable attempt to provide humanitarian relief to a sea of desperation, while events like Wladimir Klitschko versus Tyson Fury pale in significance but remain vital as evidence of mankind’s better social instincts. From the opening press conference right down to the final pre-fight publicity stare down, the contestants have engaged in very public and personal mind games. What they amount to is anybody’s guess until the opening bell. Just as with other artistic...

Holiday Reading: 2015

Each year during the holiday season, I publish a “top forty” list of what I consider to be the best books on boxing. That list, updated to accommodate recently published titles, follows. Taken together, they offer a compelling look at the sweet science from bare- knuckle days to the present. Some of these books are now out of print. But with the proliferation of online services like Abebooks.com and Amazon.com, all of them can be found. I’ve listed the US publisher for each book, but many of them have been published in the UK as...

I Am Leaving, I Am Leaving...

As far as editors go, I have been as hands off as they come. That comes from being a writer, first and foremost, and therefore understanding that it's only right to let the author retain a voice. That, and...what?... You think I was going to make something written by Ron Borges...or Bernard Fernandez...or George Kimball better? I first sat in this editor chair in the first quarter of 2007. Little was I to know how long I'd sit here...and what inventions would blow into our lives in that tenure--hello, Twitter, 140 character heroin, a...

Fake "Creed"

Escaping the shadow of one’s father is never as easy as slipping a punch, but time and again, many a young man thinks it can be done. He laces on those gloves to gain value from without instead of within and more often than not finds himself in a world of hurt. When I was a kid, right around this time of year, somewhere between the donning of costumes and the gorging of turkey, a time before HULU, DVR, Netflix, channel 11 or some other basic television affiliate would put on a Rocky marathon, movies 1-4, as Rocky 5, 6, and now 7 (Creed)...

19 Years Later, Wladimir Klitschko Still Going Strong

Nobody could have known it then, but heavyweight boxing’s most comprehensive dynasty began on Nov. 16, 1996, when the Klitschko brothers made their pro debuts on the same card. Vitali knocked out Tony Bradham in two rounds in Hamburg, Germany, and Wladimir, the 1996 super heavyweight gold medalist at the Atlanta Olympics, needed just one round to blast out Fabian Meza. And while the odds are against it, that dynasty could go on for … well, let’s just say it has to end at some point, but maybe not for several years. In April 2014,...

Pacquiao Studying Tape, Then Will Decide on Next

Manny Pacquiao will be doing his thing in Israel, on a peace, love and politics tour, and studying tape of three potential foes, and the world will know who he's fighting in his next, and maybe last fight, within a week or two. That's what Terence Crawford's manager, Cameron Dunkin was told, and Dunkin is thinking his guy might get the call. Or might not. "Does Manny want to deal with this young, strong kid," he wonders. Maybe better to sign for a third fight with the devil of a test Manny knows, in Tim Bradley. Or international...
