Coverage: Pacquiao vs. Bradley

Ringside report: You could make a case that the third man in the ring with Manny Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley, Saturday night at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, was referee Kenny Bayless. It was obvious, I mean, he was right there, the man in blue, doing such a good job you hardlynoticed he was there. But [...]

full report & gallery from alvarado-rios II

War can be so ugly, it’s beautiful. Ask any boxing fan who watched last night’s epic, and, for once, you won’t hear about snoozefests or robberies, politics or the UFC. You’ll hear about blood and guts warfare and the names of two youngsters who just may keep the sport going once the obvious elders have [...]

… and they wonder why boxing is in serious decline

Reason No. 4,589 why boxing continues to slip into obscurity: Pacquiao vs. Bradley. Not a single reporter I spoke to last night gave Bradley more than four rounds. Call me a ‘tard, but controlling the fight, landing the harder shots and staggering your opponent more than a few times, at least in my book, equates [...]

mayweather-cotto: closer than the cards

Floyd “Money” Mayweather might’ve had the bigger payday, but $32M couldn’t buy rally a pro-Cotto crowd last night at the MGM Grand. Miguel Cotto might’ve lost his title, but bloodying Floyd and winning a full house that booed the decision just might entice the Powers-Dat-Be to think about another Pacquiao match-up.  Then again, Cotto did [...]

strikeforce at the palms

Sometimes the most boring fights on the planet can produce decent shots. Shouldn’t be that way. Crap fights should translate to crap photos. But at last night’s Strikeforce Challengers show at the Palms in Las Vegas, which had one mediocre fight (the main event), one controversial stoppage in 25 seconds (Ronda Rousey won by submission [...]
