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

    I once asked a priest (during my freshman year of high school) if there was boxing in heaven. He said no. Then I don't want to go, I told him.

    In the event he was wrong, KO JO is chatting it up...
  2. Re: R.I.P Jack Obermayer -- the hardest working scribe in the world of boxing


    @ArneK. "Obermayer likely witnessed more fights from ringside than any person ever." Not certain, but that would be the way to bet. I know of no one who could challenge the...
  3. Hanna Gabriels: Boxing's Best Female Combatant Will be in Action

    June 18 Venezuela Hanna Gabriels vs Katia Alvarino for the vacant 154 pound title. Hanna's development is nothing short of astounding. She's starting to hurt men in the gym. It is my opinion that...
  4. Re: Famed East L.A. Cut Man Joe Chavez Passes

    We had a gym on Lorena Street, 13 doors down from Resurrection Gym. Movie-goers will know Resurrection from the opening scene of Stallone's 'Rocky', where he's fighting Spider Rico. At the time we...
  5. Re: Admitting That Ali Lost Helped Me Learn To Be Objective And Honest

    @Frank. As a kid I was a big Frazier fan...but a bigger fan of Ali. When told I had to choose, I couldn't understand why. It's like Red Sox-Yankees I was told. But those are my two favorite...

    Re: Next weekend is IBHOF in Canastota

    @bobcat. I'm a lifetime MS supporter. Spent time talking with Leon, but yet to meet Michael who always struck me as a class act. Good for you! Hopefully this year brings more surprises as well.

  8. Re: Investors Are Suing Al Haymon’s Backers - Here’s What You Need To Know

    While I've heard different dollar values, the percentages are in line. I believe there's less than a zero percent chance that anyone bringing a lawsuit in these matters will be successful.

    Love Lennox Lewis. Over the years the two prizefighters that treated me best in the wagering department were Lennox and Money Mayweather. Both retired with their world titles in place and have been...
  10. Re: In Vegas This Saturday? Andre Ward At A Store Near You!

  15. Re: ‘Rone Incident’...” from a draft of a manuscrpit titled "The Darker Side of B oxing."

    Beat me to it Arn, Zumbrun if memory serves correctly, had also sparred with Rone numerous times as well.

    Couple of things:

    It's similar to what I heard a comedian say recently. "I've been...
  16. You Can't Take a Second Wind, Antonio

    You can catch one however. You don't get them just because you want them, it's not like they're timeouts or anything.
  17. Re: Was The California Boxing Commission Nuts to Approve This Match?

    As women's boxing heads toward critical mass, it will surely guarantee its survival because of the ease of which a women's bout can be added to a card that would otherwise be all male, something you...
  18. Re: Ring Rust Will Be Ward's Biggest Obstacle versus Barrera

    Wow! On a reread, Frank couldn't have been more accurate and insightful.

    Andre graded himself a 'B minus' which means he probably feels he earned a B+ but he may even have been high with the...

    Re: Time for GGG to call out Lil Floyd

    One sportsbook has Triple G an 80-1 favorite in his upcoming bout. Think about that for a moment. I do not recall a bigger margin ever that you could actually wager on.

    While I agree wholeheartedly with Charles being labeled Light-Heavy King, I'm not so sure about the label "boxing expert".
