The Heavyweight We Need

One of the best heavyweights in the world climbs the rickety stairs at Main Street Boxing Gym in downtown Houston, Texas on a fair-weathered winter’s day in February. He carries his own bags up the narrow, wooden pathway to the second-story workout room where he intends to wrap his own hands and work out alongside two other fighters who are already up there shadowboxing. He and the other two men will not speak. They are only connected by their vocations and their movements around the carpeted gym floor. The heavyweight who just entered the...

Chilemba, Lepikhin Beneficiaries of Boxing’s Blended Brand of Immigration Reform

The debate over immigration reform continues to rage in the United States Congress, but two fighters from the other side of the Atlantic Ocean are finding that temporarily sweating in pursuit of their boxing dreams while in the U.S. – or, for that matter, in Canada or Mexico – is enough to qualify them as semi-official North Americans. To some – say, those geographically-challenged U.S. citizens who can’t quite remember that Pierre is the capital of South Dakota, or that Montpelier is the capital of Vermont -- it might seem odd that...

ROACH: "I Think Floyd Needs To Be Humbled, and Manny Is the One To Do It"

Floyd Mayweather has expertly cultivated an image in the last seven, eight years, one which sees him as the only boxer who is known in the US outside of the cultists that are boxing fans. No, he's not as "known" as Ali was, or Tyson, but for boxing circa 2015, Mayweather is quite the public figure. Now, the percentage of people who have a rooting interest for him, or against him, I can't know. But by an informal poll, I think I'm confident in saying that there will be just as many, or maybe more, folks who will let loose to the heavens with...

A Night at the Fights: Collective Amnesia

The purchase is non-refundable, non-transferrable and the end of any discussion. Perhaps one of the advantages of the major, team oriented sports not just in the United States but the rest of globe as well is the fact that even the most wretched stink bomb of an overmatched game takes at least more than a few minutes to materialize. Whether it's touchdowns, goals, fast breaks, hat tricks, test batting averages or home runs, not much of them seal and return our investment in a matter of seconds. It's not always down to factors such as age and...

Promoter Salita Signs Kazahk Prospect

Salita inks Kazakh Knockout artist Bakhtiyar Eyubov Brooklyn, NY (March 3, 2015)--Salita Promotions is excited to announce another future star has been added to their roster.
