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.

Andre Ward shines in return, Adrien Broner a dud

By John J. Raspanti: Away from the place he calls his "office" for the past 19 months, Andre Ward returned to work last Saturday night with a dominant performance by stopping overmatched Paul Smith at The Oracle Arena in Oakland, California. Prior to his appearance, 31-year-old Ward had been stuck in legal hell with his former promoter, the late Dan Goossen. Ward wanted out of his contract. Both sides pointed fingers.

By John J. Raspanti: “But GGG is like all punchers. That’s why with a guy like GGG, -- you have to show them, and by the time they figure it out, guess what? Fight’s over." - Andre Ward.

HARD DOG BITES: Hunter's Stock Drops & Broner's Dubious Career Arc

By Blake Chavez: Virgil Hunter usually comes off as a cool customer, but in the second half of Amir Khan’s fight vs Chris Algieri, the Bay Area hipster trainer was literally sweating bullets while begging his charge to dig to Algieri’s body. He pleaded with Amir to stay in close when the going got tough, and to avoid running. Interesting to see Hunter in what appeared to be sheer panic-mode. It’s a good thing that Amir followed his own instincts and boxed his way to the win to HARD DOG BITES: Hunter's Stock Drops & Broner's Dubious Career Arc

For the love of boxing: Chuck Williams

By John J. Raspanti: There are many characters floating around the boxing world. It doesn’t take a Sherlock Holmes to spot the good ones. One such as Chuck Williams. When I first spotted him a few years ago in Las Vegas, his stocky build and commanding presence reminded me of the late great actor James Cagney. Even the way he told a story brought the pugnacious Cagney to mind. Oh yeah, and he’s Irish. For most of his 81 years, Williams has dedicated himself to boxing, whether in the amateur For the love of boxing: Chuck Williams

The rise of Jack Johnson

By John J. Raspanti: Of all the books written on legendary former heavyweight champion Jack Johnson, none have been able to give the boxing fan an account of Johnson’s early fights from varying points of view. Until now. Adam Pollack’s seventh book, In the Ring with Jack Johnson, Part 1: The Rise is a not only a richly detailed narrative of Johnson’s early career, but a history lesson of the times. Pollack is also able to peek inside the psyche of Johnson—revealing an ambitious and dedicated... The rise of Jack Johnson

A force to be reckoned with: "Chocolatito" Gonzalez

By John J. Raspanti: When he stepped through the ropes last Saturday night at The Forum in Inglewood, CA., Roman Gonzalez was still something of a mystery. Though undefeated in 42 fights, with 36 knockouts, the native of Managua, Nicaragua’s career was more “Invisible Man" than the "Incredible Hulk". His fight against former light flyweight champion Edgar Sosa would be only his fourth in the United States.

The 48th Farce - When Boxing Sells Itself Short

By Jason Petock (Photo © Esther Lin / SHOWTIME): Boxing writers, "experts," pundits, journalists, bloggers or whatever else they are calling themselves these days really ate their words when considering and even contemplating the recent fiasco between Floyd Mayweather, Jr. and Manny Pacquiao. The main players are familiars so I’m not adding the colorful nicknames or records even at this point. We all know who they are. And we also know what a mess fans were subjected to on that PPV...

“FAR FROM OVER”

By Allan Scotto: “I am down, but I am far from over!” So goes a line from the chorus of Frank Stallone’s number one smash appropriately entitled, “Far From Over.” Well, in today’s world of boxing, one might think that Stallone was singing about Chris Algieri, who is scheduled to fight Amir Khan on May 29th at the Barclay’s Center in Brooklyn, New York.

Mingling with pugilistic legends: The West Coast Boxing Hall of Fame

By John J. Raspanti: A hush fell over the crowd as the man with the white mustache made his way into the bar. As he stopped near a table, with his wife at his side, a group of admirers crowded around him, eager to shake his hand and take a snapshot. He obliged. I couldn’t help myself either.

Alvarez ices Kirkland in explosive battle

By John J. Raspanti Photo © Ed Mulholland, Golden Boy via Getty Images: All it took was a little over eight minutes, but man was it fun getting there. Saul “Canelo” Alvarez (45-1-1, 32 KOs) brutally knocked out James “The Mandingo Warrior” Kirkland (32-2, 28 KOs) in round three at the Minute Maid Stadium in Houston, TX Saturday night, but it wasn’t as easy as it sounds. As expected, Kirkland, a southpaw, took it to Alvarez seconds into the match. He pushed the redhead into the ropes and landed Alvarez ices Kirkland in explosive battle

Canelo Alvarez faces dangerous James Kirkland May 9

By John J. Raspanti: It’s easy to forget that Saul “Canelo” Alvarez, who meets heavy-handed James Kirkland this Saturday night at Minute Maid Park in Houston, Texas, is only 24 years old. But, in a sense, he’s a veteran since he was 15 when he started boxing. Alvarez sports a gaudy record of 44 wins and one defeat. That loss was to the best fighter of his generation, Floyd Mayweather. Kirkland is a powerful southpaw with 28 knockouts in his 31 wins. The only blemish on his record came a Canelo Alvarez faces dangerous James Kirkland May 9

Were you not Entertained?

By Allan Scotto (Photo © Esther Lin / SHOWTIME): And so, the fight everyone wanted to see is in the books. This past Saturday, May 2nd, 2015, is a date that many people will remember for a very long time. It was the day that the hyped up, “fight of the century” took place! Well, it certainly wasn’t that, but it was a must see sporting event. Fight night parties were held worldwide and if you were fortunate enough to get in the arena, it was the place to be seen. It’s been a long time since “A Were you not Entertained?

Gesta and Molina meet at the crossroads

By John J. Raspanti: A boxing career is all about moving forward. A setback can be devastating, especially nowadays when one loss can seriously damage a fighter’ aspirations. On April 30, at the Fantasy Springs Casino in Indio, CA, Mercito Gesta (28-1, 16 KOs) will meet Carlos Molina (17-2-1, 7 KOs) in what is arguably the most important fight of their respective careers. A glance at Gesta’s record shows a bid for lightweight championship honors in 2012. It would be easy to consider that Gesta and Molina meet at the crossroads

Mayweather and Pacquiao play point, counter point

By John J. Raspanti: Each day the “Fight of the 21stCentury” between undefeated Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao inches closer. The bout has been talked about for over five years. On social media, fans argue 24-7 on who’s going to win. They discuss possible scenarios. Many of the discussions turn personal and nasty. Since the fight was announced, Mayweather (47-0, 26 KOs) and Pacquiao (56-5, 38 KOs) have also been debating the finer points of their match. That makes sense. They’re Mayweather and Pacquiao play point, counter point

Down but not out, Mike Jimenez rises to face his toughest test

By John J. Raspanti: A few weeks ago at the Horseshoe Casino in Hammond, IND, undefeated super middleweight Mike “Hollywood” Jimenez tasted the canvas for the second time in his undefeated boxing career. Normally this would be bad thing, but Jimenez turned a potential disaster into a positive. In the first round, Jimenez was mixing it up with heavy-handed journeyman Kevin Engel. But something was missing. He didn’t feel sharp. He was doing pretty well until a straight right dropped him. He was Down but not out, Mike Jimenez rises to face his toughest test

By Jason Gonzalez: Brooklyn, NY - The highly anticipated matchup between unified junior welterweight champion (WBA/WBC) Danny “Swift” Garcia, 30-0, (17) and IBF title holder Lamont Peterson, 33-3-1, (17) should have been a fight that saw one undisputed champion. It should have been a scrap in which the victor would have claimed supremacy at 140 pounds. But instead fight fans alike had to settle for a non-title bout that was fought at a catch weight of 143 pounds... Garcia vs. Broner next? Lee-Quillin split draw, rematch?

By John J. Raspanti: Andy Lee will make the first defense of his WBO middleweight championship this Saturday against former champion Peter Quillin at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. Lee (34-2, 24 KOs) captured the title by stopping favored Matt Korobov last year. The thirty-year almost didn’t make it to his match with Korobov.

Matthew Saad Muhammad lies in an unmarked grave

By John J. Raspanti: It pains me to read that former “blood and guts warrior” Matthew Saad Muhammad lies in a Philadelphia cemetery without a headstone. Saad Muhammad died last year at the age of 59. The cause of death was amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. It’s not surprising that in the end, his huge heart was stronger than his body. Saad Muhammad was dropped off at the Benjamin Franklin Parkway in Philadelphia in 1958... Matthew Saad Muhammad lies in an unmarked grave

Opposites attract: Gonzalez meets Russell Jr.

By John J. Raspanti: The boxer versus the slugger. It’s a cliché, but in this case it’s accurate. Jhonny Gonzalez (the slugger) defends his WBC world featherweight title against Gary Russell Jr. (the boxer) this Saturday night at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada. The styles of the two fighters is potentially the most interesting aspect of their bout. Russell Jr., 26, is all about speed. He’s loaded with it, but as he found out against Vasyl Lomachenko, speed can take you only so far. Opposites attract: Gonzalez meets Russell Jr.

Gomez and Kamegai set for potential barn burner on Fox Sports 1

By John J. Raspanti: Tonight on FOX 1 Sports and Fox Deportes, perennial contender Alfonso Gomez (24-6-2, 12 KOs) will battle Yoshihiro Kamegai (25-2-1, 22 KOs) at the Fantasy Springs Casino, in Indio, California. Competing in the hit TV show "The Contender" 11 years ago brought Gomez fame, if not fortune. Gomez was one of 16 contestants vying for a million dollars. By the end of the tournament he was ranked third, not bad for a guy who some thought wouldn’t make it out of the first Gomez and Kamegai set for potential barn burner on Fox Sports 1
