The Best of the Best: The TSS Mid-Year Awards

By Jeffrey Freeman Ask your average boxing fan about the first half of 2016 and he or she will probably complain about the lack of meaningful fights taking place. Fans are not particularlyhappy with the PBC bait-and-switch or with bouts on PPV that should be on regularcable TV. They're sick to death of being lured with carrots only to be struck over the head and robbed with the stick. We're a masochistic lot, we fight fans. We keep coming back for more abuse. Joe Sixpack might have a point about boxing being less filling these...

Deontay Wilder Puts Layla McCarter on his Next Fight Card

By David A. Avila After a confusing couple of months WBC heavyweight titlist Deontay “the Bronze Bomber” Wilder unraveled the title mess and is set to defend against Chris Arreola. Despite the chaos, the champion from Alabama remembered an old promise and kept it. “He asked if I was ready to fight and said he'd like to put me on,” said Layla McCarter, a multi-division world champion based in Las Vegas. McCarter, who is considered by many the top female prizefighter pound for pound, was added to the fight card that features...

Paulie Malignaggi’s Farewell Fight Festoons a Strong July 30 Undercard at Barclays

The Barclays Center in Brooklyn, which has superseded the fabled Madison Square Garden as New York’s temple of fistiana, opened for boxing on October 20, 2012. It figured that Paulie Malignaggi would be part of the inaugural show. The Brooklyn-born Malignaggi is the most famous Italian to bubble out of the Bensonhurst section of Brooklyn since the fictional Vinnie Barbarino, the John Travolta character in the hit late-70’s ABC sitcom “Welcome Back Kotter.” Malignaggi returns to the Barclays Center on July 30 to face fellow...

Former Champion Rocky Lockridge Hospitalized

In a sport whose history is littered with tragic stories, it sometimes is easy to forget the one's unfolding today.

He is best remembered for his first round knockout of Roger Mayweather to win the WBA super featherweight title back in February of 1984.

The Hauser Report: A Look Back at Thurman-Porter

By Thomas Hauser The June 25 fight card at Barclays Center in Brooklyn featured WBA welterweight champion Keith Thurman (Florida) versus challenger Shawn Porter (Ohio) in a battle of fighters from swing states that may well decide the 2016 presidential election. Politics aside, it was everything that a fight should be. When Thurman dials back the hype, he comes across as thoughtful and intelligent. There’s the glib Keith Thurman and the deeper, more introspective persona. Trainer Dan Birmingham says, “I’ve known Keith since he...

Thurman-Porter: When Was The Last Time We Saw All That?

By Frank Lotierzo This past weekend WBA welterweight title-holder Keith Thurman 27-0 (22) won a unanimous 12-round decision over top contender Shawn Porter 26-2-1 (16) at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. As most know I loved this match-up from the very second it was made. In my view Thurman-Porter represented everything that is, or at least could be, good about professional boxing at its highest level. And based on the result, I was right. Thurman-Porter as of June 2016 is no doubt the fight of the year. The bout was nothing but...

Thurman vs. Porter: CBS Hit a Hole-in-One

By Rick Folstad The guys who like to stand over the fight game and count to ten, claiming the sport has been knocked out by octagons, leg kicks, and the MMA, probably missed Saturday night’s fight at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. I’m guessing that if they had watched it, they might have seen a glimmer of what boxing once was and what it can still be. The fight game is dead? Hardly. Keith Thurman and Shawn Porter single-handedly gave it new life this weekend. The two welterweights combined to throw over 1,200 punches over 12...

Weekend Recap: Developments You May Have Missed

It seems that not a Saturday goes by without big boxing shows on both sides of the Atlantic. In Europe, the big show was at the O2 Arena in London where Anthony Joshua was making the first defense of his IBF World heavyweight title. In the U.S., a lusty skirmish between welterweights Keith Thurman and Shawn Porter topped a big card at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, the main events of which were on free TV (CBS), attracting strong viewership numbers, a development that may signify a leap to a more radiant era for a much-maligned...

R.I.P. Jack Obermayer: The Man Was a Legend in His Own Right

By BERNARD FERNANDEZ Two boxing legends, each of whom set standards that likely never will be surpassed, died 22 days apart in June. One, you almost certainly know about. Guy named Muhammad Ali. Called himself “The Greatest,” and, as he often said, if you can do it, it ain’t bragging. The three-time former heavyweight champion was 74 when he passed away June 3 from complications of the Parkinson’s syndrome he was originally diagnosed with more than 30 years earlier. The other, Jack Obermayer, well, his fame is not quite as...
