By Springs Toledo Back when America got up early to get ahead and men were men, “going west” put hair on your chest. The unforgiving sun, the desolate expanse, the chance to mix it up with others who painted their faces where you rolled up your sleeves — going west in the nineteenth century was akin to joining the service in the twentieth. In the twenty-first, young Americans tend to stay home. They shy away from mixing it up lest they get hurt, or sued. Those who do leave home go to universities where old-school values are...

Floyd Mayweather's Pugilistic Encore. Is It a Go or a "Maybe?"

By BERNARD FERNANDEZ Fighters who claim they are irreversibly intent on retiring from the ring are like former chart-topping vocalists who sing a supposedly final song at a concert, walk off the stage for a few minutes but almost always perform for an encore or two after the audience begs for just a little bit extra. The undisputed queen of the long goodbye is Cher, who seemingly was on her “farewell” tour for 20 years. It is established procedure in sports and in the music business for top performers to edge toward the exit, their...

Is Amir Khan As Good As He Thinks He Is?

By Kelsey McCarson Amir Khan is an extremely gifted athlete and a supremely confident one, too. He’s won world alphabet titles at 140, made lots and lots of money and, along the way, has become one of the sport’s most recognizable stars. Khan is a very good fighter. But is he really as good as he thinks he is? He should hope so. While Canelo Alvarez isn’t a fighter of Floyd Mayweather or Manny Pacquiao’s caliber (at least not at the present), it doesn’t seem out of line that he will be heavily favored over Khan when the...

D.C. Notebook: Inept Judging Nearly Ruins Showtime’s Mini-Tournament Plan

Ronan Keenan WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Generating intrigue in a boxing event is often a difficult task for a promoter or television network. Sometimes fighters drive the promotion themselves, as was the case when Adrien Broner spawned copious amounts of publicity for himself in the run-up to his most recent bout thanks to weeks of headlines and social media content about his salacious out-of-the ring behavior. Other times the promoters have more work to do. Saturday’s Showtime-televised event at the same venue where Broner last fought,...

Hughie Fury Stops Fred Kassi in London – A Drab Fight Salvaged by a Zesty Undercard

Rising heavyweight contender Hughie Fury took another step up the fistic ladder on Saturday, April 30, but the 21-year-old cousin of Tyson Fury was far from impressive. In his previous bout, Fury pitched a shutout over Dominic Guinn in a humdrum bout in which the U.S. invader showed very little offensively. His match with Fred Kassi was playing out in the same fashion until an accidental clash of heads in round six opened a nasty gash over Fury’s right eye. In the following round, on the advice of the ringside physician, the referee...

The Dirrell Brothers Take Home the Bacon in Atlantic City

The fighting Dirrell brothers from Flint, Michigan moved up the pecking order in the super middleweight division with victories over their respective opponents in a PBC promotion at the Trump Taj Mahal in Atlantic City on Friday, April 29. Anthony Dirrell, the younger sibling by 13 months, hardly broke a sweat in disposing of Caleb Truax. Andre Dirrell overcame some dicey moments to score a unanimous decision over Australia’s Blake Caparello. Anthony Dirrell, now 29-1-1 (23) stopped Minnesota’s Caleb Truax (26-2-2 going in) at the...

Is "Canelo” Alvarez A Sure Thing?

Mexico’s Saul “Canelo” Alvarez faces an unwinnable situation against Amir “King” Khan. If he wins, critics will downgrade his choice of opponent. If he loses, they will say he was a shuck all along. Either way, WBC middleweight titlist Alvarez (46-1-1, 32 K0s) meets Great Britain’s very talented Khan (31-3, 19 K0s) on Saturday May 7, at the new T-Mobile Arena, knowing full well these conditions. The HBO pay-per-view event can only ensure a good bag of money for the redhead. It’s a touchy subject whenever two words come out...

K-2’s “Triple G” Recipe Takes NYC, Now L.A. Too

By David A. Avila Just like a heavy duty tractor the Gennady “Triple G” Golovkin machine rolled into the Los Angeles city limits and steamrolled the sports world in attracting more than 16,000 fans to the Fabulous Forum. Those numbers had not been reached since Michael Carbajal clashed with Humberto “Chiquita” Gonzalez in the 1990s. K-2 Promotions once again showed why it’s the best boxing promoter today with Golovkin mobbed by fans of all nationalities in his world title match defense against virtually unknown Dominic...

When Fighters Are Put In Uncharacteristic Positions

This Saturday April 30th marks the 40th anniversary of the Muhammad Ali-Jimmy Young world heavyweight championship bout in Landover Maryland. Ali won via a 15-round unanimous decision by the scores of 72-65, 70-68 & 71-64 on points, or 10-3-2, 7-5-3 and 11-4 in rounds. The decision was controversial. It was met with boos because Ali, 34, didn't look good and missed more punches against Jimmy Young, 27, than he ever had in his career against any other fighter. After the bout, Ali's head trainer Angelo Dundee, one of the most tireless...
