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...

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...

Murat Gassiev Wins In Front of Celebrity Boxing Crowd

MONTEBELLO, CA.---Celebrities roamed around the makeshift ball-room and inside the boxing ring, young kids and prospects belted each other with extra vigor.

Toney, who vehemently stated he’s not retired, will be promoting his own shows. He’s looking to begin in April. Mauricio “El Maestro” Herrera walked into the Quiet Cannon and immediately...

BRYANT JENNINGS: "Beating Klitschko Would Make Me THE REAL Champ"

It is the first round, in a manner of speaking, and heavyweight contender Bryant “By-By” Jennings is still in the feeling-out process. Whether it’s boxing, business or personal relationships, the 30-year-old Philadelphian believes it is unwise to rush in wildly without knowing who or what you’re dealing with. More than likely, Jennings (19-0, 10 KOs) will fight a strategic, information-gathering opening stanza when he challenges WBA/IBF/WBO/IBO/The Ring/lineal champion Wladimir Klitschko (63-3, 53 KOs) in the HBO-televised main...

On a media conference call earlier this week, Bob Arum said promoterly things about the fight. He referred to each of the fighters as “gladiators” and said both men...

Trying To Make Sense of Manny-Khan Meeting, and Floyd's Next Move

UPDATE: It is Sunday, a day of prayer and rest and reflection for some. I'm thinking those folks, the ones that follow boxing, might want to add an extra request to the Almighty, if such a deity indeed could or would be influenced to help a prize-fight get made, to help the Manny-"Money" fight get off the tarmac, and reach flight stage. Or, maybe, we would be better served to simply move forward with what many folks are now assuming to be the case, Plan B being activated for The Congressman and the "Money" man.... HBO's Jim Lampley...
