Gamboa: On the Cusp of Taking Cuban Boxing to the Next Level

They May Not Play in Peoria but They’ll Play in Poland

By Steve Kim (Photo © KMG/ Dmitriy Abramov): When Vitali Klitschko defends his WBC heavyweight title this afternoon from the brand new Stadion Miejski in Wroclaw, Poland, an estimated crowd of around 45,000 will be in attendance. In addition, television ratings and viewing throughout Europe will be robust. While the Klitschkos may be looked upon as rather boring, safety-first performers...

The ShoBox TV Cheat Sheet- Sept. 9, 2011

By Marty Mulcahey (Photo © Miguel Salazar): For my money, “ShoBox” is the most undervalued television franchise in boxing. “ShoBox’s” track record of pairing talented young prospects against each other is unequalled; the series fills a niche because ESPN2, Telefutura, and FOX Sports fail to consistently demand competitive matchups for aspiring fighters on their airwaves...

Pacquiao and Marquez Announce Their Rubber (Mis?)Match

By Gabriel Montoya (Photo © Chris Farina / Top Rank): It was May 8, 2004 when Manny Pacquiao and Juan Manuel Marquez first stepped into the ring together at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, NV. The fight was an instant classic at featherweight with Marquez getting off the canvas three times in the first round to roar back into the fight and earn a draw. Depending on whom you are a fan of, each... Pacquiao and Marquez Announce Their Rubber (Mis?)Match

Ponce de Leon Comes off “Win” to Face Gamboa

By Steve Kim (Photo © German Villasenor): The last time Daniel Ponce de Leon faced an opponent who held advantages in speed and quickness was on the night of March 5th at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California, when he squared off against Adrien Broner. After ten rounds, many observers believed that the hardnosed Mexican southpaw had done more than enough to win. Instead... Ponce de Leon Comes off “Win” to Face Gamboa

A Conversation with Nacho Beristain: Part Two

By Gabriel Montoya (Translated by Zaira Nazario): As the conversation moved along in the private room at the Mexicali café “Slow Down,” photographer Ray Flores, writer Scott Hale of Halesports.com, our translator, Lucy Haro, and I asked Hall of Fame trainer Nacho Beristain about the changes he has seen in boxing’s popularity, globally, and particularly in Mexico...

Just a Ceasefire or a True Thaw?

By Steve Kim: This upcoming Saturday night at the Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, New Jersey, a featherweight contest takes place between Yuriorkis Gamboa and Daniel Ponce de Leon. The talented Cuban is promoted by Top Rank and Ponce de Leon is represented by Golden Boy Promotions. Much has been made of the fact that these two firms- who are the most powerful promotional entities in the United States- had not... Just a Ceasefire or a True Thaw?

Andre Berto Takes Jan Zaveck’s Belt in a Barnburner

By Gabriel Montoya: While we didn’t get to see if newly crowned IBF welterweight Andre Berto’s stamina had improved deep in a fight, we did get an entertaining five rounds of action Saturday night on HBO. Fighting for the first time both on HBO and in the US, Jan Zaveck, 31-2, 18 KOs of Ptuj, Slovania brought the heat to Berto but unfortunately for him and us, his face could not sustain the punishment Berto, 28-1, 22 KOs, doled out...

The HBO TV Cheat Sheet- Sept. 3, 2011

By Marty Mulcahey: Judging by the lack of buzz, there is a good chance that tonight’s “HBO Boxing After Dark” show will be the cable network’s lowest rated boxing broadcast of the year despite headliner Andre Berto coming off an HBO appearance that was the network’s third most watched boxing event of 2011. The card lacks the marquee feel of an HBO broadcast, with the headliner returning from a loss and... The HBO TV Cheat Sheet- Sept. 3, 2011

Conte’s Here to Stay

By Steve Kim: There was more than a tinge of irony when Andre Berto, of all people- the same guy who caused a bit of a mini-storm on Twitter a few months back by insinuating that Victor Ortiz had been on something illegal and illicit during their April fight- consulted Victor Conte. For many, Conte will always be synonymous with the rampant use of steroids in professional sports at the turn of the century. As a result... Conte’s Here to Stay

Gary Russell Jr.: “I’m fighting for my fans.”

By Alec Kohut: Following an impressive win over Eric Estrada on the Zab Judah-Amir Khan undercard in July, the boxing press began taking notice of DC featherweight and 2008 Olympian Gary Russell Jr. If that served as his introduction to American boxing fans, this Saturday against Leonilo Miranda on HBO will be his full-fledged, coming-out party...

A Conversation with Nacho Beristain: Part One

By Gabriel Montoya (Translated by Zaira Nazario): The Mexican state of Veracruz de Ignacio De La Llave is named for Ignacio De La Llave, a general in the Mexican army who fought against Santa Anna, Emperor Maximilian and on the Liberal government’s side of the Reform War. He served as the Governor of Veracruz from 1861 to 1862 and died a year later from battle injuries. On December 23, some 79 years... A Conversation with Nacho Beristain: Part One

Andre Berto Looks to Get Back in the Title Picture

By Gabriel Montoya: It was April 16, 2011 and Andre Berto was in the fight of his young life with Victor Ortiz. Berto was hurt and dropped early as well as late and tested throughout. When it was all over, Berto was no longer the WBC welterweight titleholder. If you had to pick a first loss, well, this might be the one you want, a “Fight of the Year” candidate with all...

Saturday Night at the Berto Rivage

By Steve Kim: This upcoming weekend marks the start of the college football season with a few marquee match-ups (LSU-Oregon and Boise State-UGA) but boxing also kicks off the first weekend of September as IBF welterweight titlist Jan Zaveck defends his belt against Andre Berto from the Beau Rivage Resort and Casino in Biloxi, MS on HBO. This past week on a national conference call with reporters, Lou "Mount St." DiBella... Saturday Night at the Berto Rivage

The Deuce, Reasons To Love Boxing…and an Ice Cream Scooper

By Alec Kohut: My most lasting memory of the 2011 season of ESPN2’s “Friday Night Fights” will undoubtedly be that of an old-fashioned ice cream scooper. As a hematoma swelled over Pawel Wolak’s right eye in his bout with Delvin Rodriquez, an Enswell looked like a postage stamp on an envelope and was no match for the almost grotesque swelling. One round later... The Deuce, Reasons To Love Boxing…and an Ice Cream Scooper

An EPIX Heavyweight Investment

By Marty Mulcahey: Today’s EPIX broadcast is reminiscent of HBO’s celebrated “Night of the Young Heavyweights” show back in 1996, in which future world title challengers John Ruiz, Shannon Briggs, David Tua, Andrew Golota, Michael Grant and Jameel McCline shared the same ring. Tomorrow’s promotion is appropriately dubbed “Night of the Hunters” in Germany, since the winners... An EPIX Heavyweight Investment

Frankie Gomez’s First Step that No One’s Talking About

By Matthew Paras: When 19-year-old Frankie Gomez steps onto the campus of University of Illinois at Chicago tonight, he could easily blend in as a student there. In actuality, he’ll be headlining the popular Telefutura program “Solo Boxeo” at the UIC Pavilion against local Chicago fighter Adrian Granados, 6-0-1 (4). The fight aims to be the first step in a promising career for Gomez. Frankie Gomez’s First Step that No One’s Talking About

The Trainers: “You get into it for the love of the game.”

By Gabriel Montoya: So much in the sport of boxing is focused on the fighters. Fans clamor for fantasy match-ups and pound-for-pound battles, poring over the great old clips of Sugar Ray Robinson or modern greats like Bernard Hopkins and marvel at their accomplishments. The promoters themselves have been a prominent focus as well throughout the sport’s history from Tex Rickard to Don King’s hair... The Trainers: “You get into it for the love of the game.”

By Steve Kim: It was announced with great fanfare last week that the UFC had brokered a deal with the Fox Network that would have them televising four live cards a year.
