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 [...]

rios dries out, gains weight

Rios unable to make weight for title fight with Richard Abril: There were no staredowns, no shoving, no smack talk at yesterday’s weigh-in. The drama – or mystery – centered on the scale, when Brandon “Bam Bam” Rios came in two pounds heavy, at 137. One hour later, after an attempt to sweat out two [...]

khan-judah ringside impressions

Been spitting out crow feathers all morning from picking Zab “Super” Judah to upset Amir “King” Khan at last night’s HBO-televised card at Mandalay Bay. Not quite ready to enlist in Khan’s Army, but there’s little doubt who reigns at 140 pounds.  Judah, meanwhile, aged five years with every round and the beltline blow was [...]

khan, judah limber up at mandalay

Public workouts are usually crap, meaning, don’t expect to really see your favorite fighter do much more than shadowbox, maybe hit the mitts. Today’s event at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas was no exception. Zab “Super” Judah was super-late, but at least he gave the fans several rounds of mitt work, while living legend Pernell “Sweet [...]

revolving door traps khan

Amir “King” Khan, Freddie Roach and Scott Ghertner of MGM/Mandalay Bay should’t feel too bad about momentarily getting trapped in the Mandalay Bay’s main lobby revolving door. Just minutes before, I was one of three photogs who were victimized by the same door. Question here is, does the “Wrong Way” sticker near Khan’s predict a rough [...]

magdaleno bros. fever hits vegas

There may be no one to compare with Manny Pacquiao, but on the local Las Vegas scene, no one has been able to rally a local crowd like the Magdalenos. Last night at the Mandalay Bay, Diego Magdaleno (19-0, 6 KOs) won by third round TKO over Gilberto Sanchez Leon (31-9-2, 11 KOs). On the undercard, [...]

postfight coverage from vegas

The heir appears Donaire: The punch that knocked out Vic Darchinyan in 2007, launching Nonito Donaire into stardom might’ve been “pretty sweet,” according to the “Filipino Flash.” But the shot that leveled Mexican legend Fernando Montiel, last night at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, crowning Donaire king of bantamweights and launching the Filipino on the path [...]
