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.

Berto gets his revenge, knocks out Ortiz

By John J. Raspanti: Revenge is best served cold. Former welterweight champion Andre Berto (31-4, 24 KOs) was icy in knocking out Victor Ortiz (31-6-2, 24 KOs) in round four Saturday night at the StubHub Center in Carson, CA. Berto, 32, came out jabbing in the opening stanza. Ortiz surprised many, including Berto, by boxing from the outside. By the end of the round, Ortiz, 29, was bleeding from his hairline courtesy of an accidental head butt. Ortiz circled to his right in round two... Berto gets his revenge, knocks out Ortiz

A sequel five years too late: Victor Ortiz and Andre Berto do it again

By John J. Raspanti (Photo © German Villasenor, MaxBoxing.com): Trying to predict what will happen in the ring this Saturday night, when former world champions Victor Ortiz (31-5-2, 24 KOs) and Andre Berto (30-4, 23 KOs) meet for the second time, is equivalent to predicting the outcome of this year’s election. One thing is certain--it’s likely to be a train wreck, but an extremely entertaining one... A sequel five years too late: Victor Ortiz and Andre Berto do it again

Ramirez has his way with Abraham

By John J. Raspanti: When defending WBO super middleweight champion Arthur Abraham arrived in Las Vegas last week, he expected to be a big favorite to win on April 9. Makes sense. During his 16-year career, Abraham has swapped punches with most of the best fighters in his division, including former champions Carl Froch and Andre Ward. Instead Abraham learned his opponent, unheralded youngster Gilberto Ramirez, was favored by most to defeat him... Ramirez has his way with Abraham

Manny Pacquiao meets Timothy Bradley for the third time: Do you care?

By John J.

Why Sylvester Stallone deserves an academy award for "Creed"

By John J. Raspanti: At 29, Sylvester Stallone was a struggling actor with barely a hundred bucks in the bank and a pregnant wife. It was 1975 and he had just seen the Muhammad Ali/Chuck Wepner fight. Something had clicked. Living off caffeine and ambition, Stallone took just three days to write a screenplay that he would eventually title “Rocky.” MGM Studios liked his writing but not him. They offered the unemployed Stallone two hundred thousand dollars, to not play the lead. The studio Why Sylvester Stallone deserves an academy award for "Creed"

Heavyweight Mike Mollo: determination, guts and heart

Mollo, a Chicago native, has been victorious in 20 of his 25 professional fights, with 12 wins by knockout. Things looked promising in 2006 after he knocked out Kevin McBribe in two rounds.

A Warrior’s heart with an old Man’s Body

By Benny Henderson Jr.: Anybody who follows any contact sport knows that it is a young man’s game. Professional football players rarely play on when they reach their mid to late thirties.
