Boxing and poker – maybe a start on something new?

Even though both sports are known for intense action and rough characters, boxing and poker aren’t usually combined. This didn’t stop Gus Hansen (known as one of the biggest full tilt poker names)and Danish poker pro Theo Jorgensen from duking it out. Both know as skilled poker players in both the online poker and live tournament circuit, did quite well as shown in the video.

Do These Pay-per-views Make the Grade?

By Steve Kim: On Tuesday afternoon, a press conference was staged by Golden Boy Promotions at the ESPN Zone at L.A. Live, officially announcing their April 9th pay-per-view card at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. The main event features a junior welterweight scrap between the hard-hitting Marcos Maidana and the legendary Erik Morales. It’s one of three major pay-per-view shows scheduled for the first half of 2011... Do These Pay-per-views Make the Grade?

Stuck on ESPN2?

By Marty Mulcahey: A multiplicity of influences and chance combine to shape the careers of boxers currently serving their tours of duty on ESPN2’s “Friday Night Fights.” On FNF’s 2011 debut, Ruslan Provodnikov was upset by Mauricio Herrera, losing a unanimous decision to the defiant Californian in a back-and-forth affair.

A November to Remember (or at Least Look Forward To)

By Steve Kim (Photo © Chris Farina / Top Rank): Ladies and gentlemen, it’s finally over. The boxing malaise that was October- in which neither HBO or Showtime televised any major boxing of note and the most notable fight was the expected mismatch between Vitali Klitschko and Shannon Briggs- has finally come to an end. And as you turn your calendars to November, you see an abundance of big fights that upcoming... A November to Remember (or at Least Look Forward To)

Saturday Night TV Cheat Sheet

Saturday Night TV Cheat Sheet

Marty Mulcahey: Yesterday, in the Friday edition of the Cheat Sheet, I noted boxing is on a hot streak with three consecutive weekends of four or more televised boxing events. This weekend, the best was saved for last, as all three televised fights have immediate or near-future ramifications on the world title picture. Of more import than the alphabet belts is that a Ring magazine championship will be bestowed upon the winner of the Chad Dawson-Jean Pascal bout. That fills a vacant title at 175 Saturday Night TV Cheat Sheet

Ryan Maquiñana: Six cities, six stories, interconnected but individually important in their own right. To take a page out of my colleague Alec Kohut’s Eastern Regional Report, pop some classic West Coast beats in the iPod (B-Legit’s “City 2 City” comes to mind) and take a brief excursion with me for my latest version of the West Coast Watch.

The Weekend TV Cheat Sheet

Marty Mulcahey: A relatively slow weekend of boxing is on tap with only three televised events, which seems especially quiet when compared to the six fight cards featured last week. The number matters little, since part of the line-up is Israel Vazquez fighting Rafael Marquez, and I shut out thoughts of any other fights when those two warriors step into the ring against each other. Not only is that Showtime main event can’t-miss viewing, it features an intriguing undercard bout between Yonnhy P The Weekend TV Cheat Sheet

Random Thoughts and Blizzards

Steve Kim: Because of the length of my last article ("Larry Merchant Reflects on Douglas-Tyson), I didn’t really get a chance to comment on what took place this past weekend in boxing and beyond. And with the way it’s snowing all across the country (by the way, it’s about 75 degrees and not a cloud in the sky out here in Southern California), I’ve decided that it’s more appropriate to call these blizzards and not flurries Random Thoughts and Blizzards

Hopkins and Jones Get Ready to Do it Again for Old Time(r)s Sake

Gabriel Montoya: Rivalries. Sports are full of them. Cowboys/Eagles. Lakers/Celtics. Dodgers/Yankees. Boxing is no exception. Ali/Frazier jumps to mind, right off the bat. In boxing, rivalries seem just a little more personal than in other sports. Maybe it’s because while teams change their rosters, boxers are simply men whose Hopkins and Jones Get Ready to Do it Again for Old Time(r)s Sake

Weekend TV Cheat Sheet

By Martin Mulcahey (Photo © Chris Farina/ Top Rank): After two straight weekends of four-plus boxing events on TV, we revert to a forlorn two-act weekend featuring a single show on Friday and Saturday night. Worse yet, fans will need to fork over PPV money to watch the Saturday night fare. It’s not all negative though; the matchups are attractive on both the ESPN and PPV card, with the possibility of an upset on the televised portion of both shows. Which favorite will go down? Read on.
