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.

The Best He’s Ever Had

By Steve Kim: Abel Sanchez has trained an impressive roster of fighters throughout his career as a cornerman. He’ll always been known as the guy who helped develop one “Terrible” Terry Norris (and his brother Orlin) and the respected Miguel Angel Gonzalez. He’s also worked with the likes of Nana Konadu, Yori Boy Campas, Jesus Salud and Samuel Peter among others. But he says Gennady Golovkin - who makes his... The Best He’s Ever Had

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.

Emanuel Steward: "Wlad will Unload his Missiles Earlier than Usual"

By Gabriel Montoya (Photo © Howard Schatz): On September 24, 2005, current IBF and WBO heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko, 54-3 (48), entered the ring at Atlantic City’s Boardwalk Hall a thrice-stopped fighter with many doubters and a lot to prove. His opponent: Sam “The Nigerian Nightmare” Peter, an undefeated Nigeria-born, power-punching slugger with highlight reel KOs and a “Who Next?!” (Yes, it’s spelled that way) attitude when it came to opponents. While he was considered the cruder Emanuel Steward: "Wlad will Unload his Missiles Earlier than Usual"

So is a Tulip Worth More than a Berto?

By Steve Kim: As of right now, it’s not clear when we’ll see Andre Berto in the upcoming months. Berto, the current WBC welterweight champion, began 2010 with an appointment to face Shane Mosley but those plans were scuttled when he dropped out of that fight citing his need to go to Haiti, which had just suffered a catastrophic earthquake (which had an impact on his relatives). He eventually faced Carlos Quintana in April, stopping the Puerto Rican in eight. So is a Tulip Worth More than a Berto?

Ryan Maquiñana: 18 straight wins will catch anyone’s attention. Just ask WBC CABOFE champion Manuel “El Toro” Quezada, 29-4 (18), who has crept into the consciousness of the heavyweight division by going undefeated the last four years. Standing only one spot below Samuel Peter at number eight in the latest WBC heavyweight rankings, the 32-year-old has another opportunity to make his case for a shot at Vitali Klitschko’s belt when he takes on Jason Gavern (18-7, 8 KOs) on April 8 in Lemoore, C Q & A: Heavyweight Contender Manuel Quezada

Sadly, there is not a lot of boxing on TV to distract us (and no, the HBO replay of the Pacquiao-Clottey bout does not count), with only two televised shows on ESPN2 and Fox Sports.

Yes, Saturday is for inviting friends over to share in “Pac-Man Fever” and sharing the cost of a HBO-type main event that lacks an attractive undercard.

Saturday TV Cheat Sheet

By Martin Mulcahey: Saturday features two quality fight cards on television. However, in order to watch both in their entirety people will need to employ different time zones (HBO West & East, and the Showtime family of channels), or have the scientific expertise to manipulate the time space continuum. It is a shame that HBO and Showtime have chosen to televise events at the same time, because it splits the audience and could make them pick one event over the other.
