    Sugar Ray Robinson vs Henry Armstrong…On This Day in 1943

    Sugar Ray Robinson vs Henry Armstrong - Today marks the 73rd anniversary of Sugar Ray Robinson vs Henry Armstrong. The bout between them took place at Madison Square Garden on August 27th, 1943, but there would be no bout to talk about were it not for Robinson idolizing Homicide Hank combined with a slight by promoter Mike Jacobs that led to t...

    “Hands of Stone” — The Movie Got It Right For The Most Part

    They got it right, for the most part. But also somewhat wrong. “Hands of Stone,” the biopic about the legendary Roberto Duran, opened in wide release nationwide on Aug. 26 and, on my personal 1-to-10 scale for grading movies, I’d give it, oh, a 7.8, which is a pretty high rating but maybe more generous a score than from anyone who isn...

    Boxing under the Stars in Rural Nevada: Welcome to Fallon

    “In the tradition of professional boxing in rural Nevada, boxing is making history again in Fallon” reads a blurb promoting Saturday’s boxing show at the Churchill County Fairgrounds.

    Conquering Sugar Ray was Living — and Losing to him was Dying – for Robe...

      By Frank Lotierzo With the bio-pic of Roberto Duran hitting the big screen, it's the perfect time to review the things in play going into the first clash between him and reigning WBC welterweight champ Sugar Ray Leonard, since much of the movie focuses on the first two bouts between them. It’s been so overlooked during the 36 years ...

    Danny Roman Defends NABA Title in Corona and Other Fight Chatter

      By David A. Avila When Danny Roman steps in between the ropes at the Corona outdoor boxing venue to face Mexico’s Enrique Quevedo he’s following a successful path paved by many elite fighters.

    Rio Olympics Boxing Redux: When will the Corruption End?

      By BERNARD FERNANDEZ                Truth be told, a shadow has been enveloping the Olympic movement for at least 50 years. The pall might have begun to descend even earlier than that; one of history’s most evil men, German chancellor Adolf Hitler, sought and procured the 1936 Berlin Olympics with the goal of using it ...

    Jimmy Slattery Gone But Not Forgotten - August 25th marks the birthday of ring legend Jimmy Slattery.  "Slats" was born in the First Ward of Buffalo, New York in 1904.  He had a very up and down ring career with his biggest enemy being himself -- it was both a blessing and a curse that he was a complete natural in the ring.  Slats had it al...
