A Closer Look at the Officials in the Mayweather-McGregor Fight

A Closer Look at the Officials in the Mayweather-McGregor Fight

No matter one’s feelings about the integrity of the Mayweather-McGregor fight, this is a huge international sporting event. By my loose calculation, the match has already shattered the mark set by the Johnson-Jeffries fight for the most words showered on a boxing match. That 1910 bout at Reno was promoted by Tex Rickard who named himself the...

Daniel Franco remains battling in a Pomona hospital after several brain surgeries and a recent bout against infection. It’s been two months since Rancho Cucamonga’s Franco was rushed to a hospital after suffering a knockout loss against Utah’s Jose Haro and a subsequent “brain bleed” in Iowa.

30 Boxing Notables Recall Their All-Time Favorite Fight(s)

This completes the participative trilogy involving a favorite boxer, a favorite boxing book, and now a favorite fight (though a favorite round still looms as a possibility). I’ll weigh in first.

A Sudden Surge of Retirements: Uchiyama, Miura, and Juan Manuel Marquez

No other sport or entertainment industry compares to prizefighting. When its participants retire it’s a time for celebration of their noble contributions.

Indongo May Provide A Scary Moment Against Crawford, But That’s It

Indongo May Provide A Scary Moment Against Crawford, But That’s It

It's been 14 years since we've seen an undisputed unified champion atop the junior welterweight division. The last time the unified champ defended all the titles was back in January of 2003 when Kostya Tszyu defended the WBA-WBC-IBF titles against Jessie James Leija. The fight concluded when Leija's corner stopped the bout after the sixth roun...

Bob Arum Takes Another Dip Into The Heavyweight Pond

Bob Arum Takes Another Dip Into The Heavyweight Pond

The secret of Bob Arum’s incredible longevity in boxing, a voracious, cannibalistic sport that tends to devour its young and weak and casually gnaw on the remnants of its old and infirm, is the 85-year-old’s ability to recognize and take advantage of coming changes before they happen, almost before anyone else knows those changes are neede...

On Tuesday, Aug. 15, long-reigning world bantamweight champion Shinsuke Yamanaka suffered a brutal fourth round stoppage at the hands of Mexico’s Luis “Pantera...

Three Punch Combo: An Unexpectedly Strong PPV Undercard and More

THREE PUNCH COMBO -- This week, the pay-per-view undercard for Mayweather-McGregor was formally announced. As much as I hate the main event, I must applaud the organizers for putting together a pay-per-view undercard that delivers. I feared we’d get another Mayweather-Pacquiao type undercard with a couple of showcase bouts leading into the m...

The late Stanley Weston, who had a long association with The Ring magazine, rising from copy boy to publisher, once said that he really didn’t like boxing but he liked to write about boxing because it was the sport with the best storylines.
