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.

Title Shots Here! Getcha' Free Title Shot!, Vol. 10

By Derek Bonnett: It’s been awhile. In fact, it’s been since July of 2012 that I felt compelled to write a volume of Title Shots Here! Getcha’ Free Title Shot! That’s not to say there haven’t been an undeserving "contender" or three over the last two years that hasn’t conveniently popped into the rankings of an organizing body just prior to a title fight being announced. There certainly has, but a contender or three isn’t a problem in a two-year period of time. Well, guess what boxing Title Shots Here! Getcha' Free Title Shot!, Vol. 10

I Said That? A 2012 Preview Review: Part One

By Marty Mulcahey: It is that time of the New Year for me again, my yearly ritual of evaluating predictions made over the previous year. It is an annual act which fluctuates wildly between self-abuse and narcissism. Visitors to sports websites are sure to notice how easy it is for writers to make predictions at this time of the year, certain in the knowledge that few will remember what they wrote 365 days from now.

The 2013 K9 Awards: Part Two

By Steve Kim: OK, before we move on, I was told by more than a few people that Josesito Lopez’s thrilling victory over Victor Ortiz and Rey Migreno’s shocking win over Pongsaklek Wonjongkam merited status in the “Upset of the Year” category. No arguments here. It was a clear oversight on my part and it’s duly noted. Now, let’s resume the festivities... FIGHT OF THE YEAR... The 2013 K9 Awards: Part Two

A Quick Look at Some Modern-Day Warriors

By Anson Wainwright: I consider every person who steps into the squared circle a warrior; each and every one of them has my utmost respect. However, certain fighters qualify more than others.

Not Exactly an “Oktoberfest” for Boxing

By Steve Kim: There’s been a lot of entertaining stuff on HBO in October. I’ve enjoyed “Boardwalk Empire” (which, for my money, might soon be up there with “The Sopranos” or “The Wire” in due time). It’s great to have Bill Maher back; no matter what your political philosophy is, this show is always good for few laughs. And Kenny Powers, well, that’s who I want to be when I grow up. But there is something missing from my... Not Exactly an “Oktoberfest” for Boxing

Montoya’s Friday Mailbag

Thank Buddha it’s Friday, fight fans. Time has seemed slow down for me these days. Not sure why. Maybe it’s my body slowly recoiling from my 37th birthday coming up next week. Maybe it’s because I never wear a watch and have started to not notice time in my older age. In any case, we have a full roster of fights this weekend and a whole lot of questions today about almost none of them. Fight fans, I have to ask again, let’s cut the questions to the quick.

Preview and Predictions for 2010

By Martin Mulcahey: Maxboxing is the most progressive boxing site in cyberspace. This means instead of looking back upon a great 2009, I want to look ahead to what should be another stellar year for boxing below the heavyweight division. Getting a jump on the competition also allows me to claim all other boxing writers are ripping off my opinions and predictions..., at least the ones I get right. In the next three installments I will present an overview of every weight class. For each division I Preview and Predictions for 2010

Hitting 300 in Boxing

By Martin Mulcahey: Major League Baseball’s World Series begins this week, and affords me the opportunity incorporate current events as a vehicle to talk more boxing. I, and most casual sports fans, understand that a .300 batting average is a marquee statistic in baseball. I have managed to find something akin to it in boxing. However, hitting this 300 mark in boxing exceeds the achievement in baseball, since boxing’s timeline covers years instead of just one season. Hitting 300 in Boxing

Pay-Per-View Previews

By Martin Mulcahey: Next week there is one definitive PPV, the Mayweather - Marquez clash, whereas tonight two competing PPV’s go head to head. The choice of which one to purchase may boil down to nationality for many. The card from Puerto Rico is headlined by long time champion Ivan Calderon, while the PPV emanating from Mexico features the son of legendary Mexican icon Julio Cesar Chavez. Then there is the Filipino angle, with a couple of potent boxers from the Philippines on each card. To be Pay-Per-View Previews
