Both know as skilled poker players in both the online poker and live tournament circuit, did quite well as shown in the video.

SERGIO!

In possibly one of the best punches in middleweight history, Sergio Martinez scored a sensational one-punch knockout over Paul Williams at 1:10 of the second round and ended any debate as to who is the greatest middleweight in the world today. The fight began as expected with neither fighter giving an inch. By the end of the first round, there was little doubt that the rematch would live up to the billing. The slugfest was on. Both began the second stanza throwing punches, with Martinez SERGIO!

A Gathering Sturm in Germany

By Marty Mulcahey: In 2004, German middleweight Felix Sturm was brought to Las Vegas as a sacrificial lamb for Oscar De La Hoya, a supposed dupe whose only worth was a WBO belt that De La Hoya wanted to wrap around his waist before facing Bernard Hopkins. Many fans still believe Sturm beat De La Hoya; HBO’s Harold Lederman scored the fight 115-113 for Sturm and it is a testament to Sturm’s character that... A Gathering Sturm in Germany

I said that? My 2009 Preview Review - Part III

By Martin Mulcahey (Photo © Howard Schatz): This is the third and final installment of my annual preview-review, featuring boxing’s traditional glory divisions from middleweight to heavyweight. In the previous two segments I rationalized that readers who visit various boxing websites must notice how easy it is for journalists to make lofty predictions. Many writers are certain in the knowledge that few will remember what they wrote in a year’s time. So, every year I venture back in time and I said that? My 2009 Preview Review - Part III

By Julian Kasdin: Boxing fans love a hard-charging fighter, someone with that right mix of power, aggression, and enough skill to become champion. Enter Marco Huck (26-1 20 KOs), the 25 year old WBO cruiserweight champion from Serbia. His journey towards the top of the cruiserweight division has been unconventional, owing to an unusual start and a few bumps along the way, but he has quickly Kapt’n of the Cruisers

The Shaw-riff Seeks Justice for Funeka

Steve Kim: It’s not clear who had a worse Thanksgiving weekend, Ali Funeka, who got the shaft from the judges in his fight for the vacant IBF lightweight title against Joan Guzman, or Tiger Woods who might have gotten the shaft of a sand wedge from his irate wife. "Well, I would say Tiger because Ali didn’t get hit with anything," said Gary Shaw, who promotes the lanky South African.

An Invisible Champion: Zsolt Erdei

Julian Kasdin: Many of you probably have never heard of Zsolt Erdei (31-0 17 KOs), but he is a champion. Not only is Erdei a champion, this past weekend he won a title in a second weight class, cruiserweight, when he defeated Giacobbe Fragomeni (26-2-1 10 KOs) for the Italian’s WBC title. You see, Erdei was actually the lineal champion at light heavyweight, having won the title from the man that beat the man, but has been unable to crack the collective conscious of the average American fight An Invisible Champion: Zsolt Erdei
