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.

Azad Championship Report: Santa Cruz at the Staples Center

By Steve Kim (Photo © Gene Blevins - Hoganphotos/Golden Boy Promotions): IBF bantamweight titlist Leo Santa Cruz has vivid recollections of his fifth professional outing. As the literary giant, Snoopy, would describe it, “it was a dark and stormy night” on the evening of January 4th, 2008 at the Alameda Swap Meet in Los Angeles. On a card televised by Telefutura on its “Solo Boxeo” series, Santa Cruz was part of the undercard. This show was held outside in the parking lot area and it was one of Azad Championship Report: Santa Cruz at the Staples Center
The L.A. Sports Arena? Yes, It’s Still Standing

The L.A. Sports Arena? Yes, It’s Still Standing

By Steve Kim: Twice in a span of four weeks (on November 17th and December 15th), the Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena will host two boxing shows. First, Brian Viloria and Hernan Marquez will unify their flyweight titles and then, a month later, Amir Khan takes on Carlos Molina. Yes, this old building, which opened its doors in July of 1959 and sits right next to the L.A. Memorial Coliseum is staging significant fight cards. Who’da thunk it? The L.A. Sports Arena? Yes, It’s Still Standing

Nishioka’s fighting heart drives him towards Donaire

By Gabriel Montoya (Photo © Chris Farina / Top Rank): At the end of 2010, super bantamweight champion Toshiaki Nishioka, 39-4-3, 24 KOs, was named Japan’s “Fighter of the Year.” At the ceremony, a video challenge by Fernando Montiel was made to Nishioka who readily accepted. The bout would have been a fight fan’s dream: Arguably the best 118 pound boxer/puncher from Mexico against the best 122 pound fighter out of Japan. But...

I’ll drink to that: Hopes, dreams, fights and fighters in 2012

By Gabriel Montoya: I’m not big on lists of best this or that, instead preferring to look forward to 2012. It’s a year I expect to be among one of boxing’s best if everything falls the way it should or we hope. If we all make like Rodney King wished and just get along, this sport is poised to go through the roof... I’ll drink to that: Hopes, dreams, fights and fighters in 2012

Akifumi Shimoda’s Luck of the Draw

By Daniel Kravetz: The most indelible moment from the night of fights in Korakuen Hall on February 21, 2009 was of José Arboleda violently scissoring his gloves across each other in a burst of anguish. His opponent, Akifumi Shimoda, stood behind him on the other side of the ring, his corner dabbing the blood that was still running from the gaping diagonal gash in his forehead...

I Said THAT?! The 2010 Preview Review: Part Two

By Marty Mulcahey: In Part One of the annual preview review, I lamented how journalists making predictions for 2011 are certain in the knowledge that few readers will remember what they wrote in a year’s time. To write for Maxboxing is to be held to a higher standard, and to that end, I venture back in time to review my predictions for I Said THAT?! The 2010 Preview Review: Part Two

The Weekend TV Cheat Sheet

By Marty Mulcahey: This weekend’s boxing schedule endured more last-minute cancelations, changes, and substitutions than the first round of Showtime’s “Super Six” tourney. Until wrecked by medical ailments, the line-up of fights was the opposite of what boxing fans were treated to last week. Only six days ago, HBO and Showtime featured six top ten-rated fighters squaring off against... The Weekend TV Cheat Sheet

The Big Saturday PPV Preview

By Marty Mulcahey: Weekends on which the best pound-for-pound boxer fights are always special. Saturday is no different and it speaks to the import and personality of Manny Pacquiao that he overshadows every other boxing event. Take David Haye’s defense of his portion of the world heavyweight title, for instance. Outside of England, it is receiving little press, while Pacquiao was featured with President Barack Obama on "60 Minutes"... The Big Saturday PPV Preview

Porter Has Blind Faith

By Steve Kim: It was another routine day at the Wild Card Boxing Club in Hollywood where Shawn Porter- who faces Hector Munoz this Friday night as the opening bout on the latest installment of “ShoBox” from the Buffalo Run Casino in Miami, Oklahoma- was working the mitts with his father/trainer, Kenny Porter. It’s something that goes on across every gym in the world. Working the pads nowadays is akin to baseball players taking batting practice or playing catch... Porter Has Blind Faith

Montoya's Monday Mailbag

Montoya's Monday Mailbag

As I worked the phones from mid-week, and through a weekend that included a few street crawls, bar visits, a trip to the Ten Goose Boxing Gym, talked with hardcore fans at the cigar shop next to the House of Blues on Sunset Boulevard, the Seven Grand whiskey bar downtown, and even the corner shop I just bought some smokes in, I realized that the story here is much bigger than I realized. Looking over my (NSAC Commissioner) Keith Kizer transcripts, I found myself with more questions for Keith Montoya's Monday Mailbag

Prospect of the Year Danny Jacobs looks ahead to 2010

By Gabriel Montoya (Photo © Howard Schatz): If you’re one of those fight fans who watches pay-per-view undercards as closely as the main event then you’ve been aware of middleweight prospect Daniel “The Golden Child” Jacobs long before he made his biggest splash of 2009. A standout amateur boxer who won every award under the sun with the lone exception of an Olympic berth, Jacobs turned pro in December 2007 on the Ricky Hatton/Floyd Mayweather, Jr undercard and has since been a fixture on some Prospect of the Year Danny Jacobs looks ahead to 2010

By Martin Mulcahey: The American boxing scene has always had a soft spot for Irish fighters, be it home brewed Irish-American’s like John L. Sullivan or the real thing from The Emerald Isle like Barry McGuigan. The latest Irishman to try his hand at wooing the American public is Bernard Dunne, who puts his alphabet title... Not Dunne yet
