When Things Get Queasy

By Ted Sares When Orlando Salido and Francisco Vargas went toe-to-toe in a back and forth war on June 4, the pulsating action was getting close to the point where someone might have to be saved from himself. Fights like the “Thrilla in Manila,” Pemberton vs. Sheika, Gatti-Ward I, Alvarado vs. Rios, and Bradley vs. Provodnikov resonated and like those, this one was making everyone just a bit uneasy, if not queasy. However, the fight that really resonated -- at least for me -- tracked back to January 1995 and involved...

LA and Tijuana Blazing with Boxing on Friday Night

By David A. Avila Summer in two cities brings a lot of heat. First a charity event in downtown L.A. brings L.A.P.D. facing N.Y.P.D. in a battle of the badges on Friday July 1, at the Belasco Theater.

The Greatest Heavyweight Champs Since Muhammad Ali Last Held The Title

By Frank Lotierzo On June 27th 1979 Muhammad Ali announced his retirement from boxing. At that time he hadn't fought in nine months. In his most recent bout he defeated Leon Spinks in their rematch to capture the heavyweight title, WBA version, for the third time. Many thought boxing was going to die a slow death without Ali around, who at the time was the most recognized person on the planet. However, boxing was in a little better shape than most perceived it to be. When Ali announced his retirement Larry Holmes was three months...

Pro Boxing Returns to Norway; It's Legal Again Thanks to Lady Cecilia

On December 17, 2014, by a vote of 54 to 48, the Norwegian Parliament lifted the nation’s ban on professional boxing. But the annulment of the 33-year ban came with a burdensome list of stipulations regarding such matters as drug testing. That has kept would-be promoters at bay -- that and the fact that there are few professional boxers in Norway, reportedly only eight. But things are about to change. Promoters have reserved the date of Oct. 1 for a big boxing show at the Spektrum Arena in Oslo. The headliner will be Cecilia Braekhus. The...

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...

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.
