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.

Marotta’s Favorite Forum Memories

By Steve Kim (Image created by icheehuahua, MaxBoxing): This weekend, the newly refurbished and renovated Fabulous Forum in Inglewood (once the home of the Lakers and Kings) re-opens its doors as a boxing venue, welcoming back its prodigal pugilist son, Juan Manuel Marquez, who faces Mike Alvarado in a crossroads welterweight battle. When you think of Forum Boxing (which closed up shop in 1999) and its heyday, one of the first names you think of is Rich Marotta... Marotta’s Favorite Forum Memories

Fight On! Random Thoughts from the USC

By Steve Kim (Photo © German Villasenor): This past Saturday night at the Galen Center on the campus of USC, Bermane Stiverne captured the vacant WBC heavyweight title with a sixth-round stoppage of Chris Arreola in an entertaining affair, nationally televised on ESPN.

Bermane Stiverne Emerges

Gabriel Montoya (Photo © Goossen Tutor Promotions / Brittini Moten): On April 27, 2013, heavyweight contender Bermane Stiverne had a shot at the WBC version of the heavyweight title within his grasp. Three rounds into his fight with Chris Arreola, Stiverne, who came to boxing late following an injury that cut his college football aspirations short, had fought through his early nerves. The bout was fought at a fast pace with both men shooting jabs and firing right hands. But neither... Bermane Stiverne Emerges

To Extend or not to Extend?

By Steve Kim: Early this week, Top Rank Promotions President Todd duBoef was summoned out of the bullpen to try and salvage the proposed bout between Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. and Gennady Golovkin, tentatively taking place on July 19th at the Forum in Los Angeles. It was a fight boxing fans were salivating over and everyone involved in the negotiations believed this was a deal that would eventually get done... To Extend or not to Extend?

By Steve Kim (Photo © Goossen Tutor Promotions/Brittini Moten): This Saturday night from the hoops home of the USC Trojans, Chris Arreola gets another crack at Bermane Stiverne (ESPN, 8 p.m., ET) at the Galen Center for the vacant WBC heavyweight title.

De la Hoya’s Here

By Steve Kim: Yesterday, on a cool Southern California afternoon on Olvera Street, the press tour for the July 12th bout between Saul “Canelo” Alvarez and Erislandy Lara, promoted by Golden Boy Promotions, kicked off. But most interesting was that the master of ceremonies for this media gathering was the “Golden Boy” himself. For years, while Oscar De la Hoya’s silhouette served as the logo of the company, Richard Schaefer was its day-to-day leader and main decision... De la Hoya’s Here

Mayweather-Maidana: A Maelstrom of Moments

By Gabriel Montoya (Photo © German Villasenor): As a promotion, “The Moment” had many of them. Some newsworthy, some not so much. How authentic or newsworthy its all been is a matter of question.

Fight Night at the Theater

By Steve Kim (Photo © K9 Photos): It was a rough night at the office for Floyd Mayweather despite being a 12-to-1 favorite. It seems the rugged and hardnosed Argentine slugger, Marcos Maidana never got that memo. Using a smothering, two-fisted attack, Maidana never let Mayweather get completely comfortable throughout the proceedings. But Mayweather would get on track in the second half of the fight and eventually win a majority decision at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas... Fight Night at the Theater

Maidana had his Moments But Mayweather Seized "The Moment"

By Bill Tibbs (Photo © German Villasenor): A Floyd Mayweather (46-0, 26 KO’s) fight is an event. All the fanfare, fireworks and fun you could hope for. Oh, yeah, and a boxing match as well. The reigning king of the ring gets to inch towards his goal of 50-0 and his opponent (insert name here) gets to take a crack at being “the man who beat the man”. And, make no mistake, if you are getting a shot at Mayweather you better have something on that night or you are in trouble... Maidana had his Moments But Mayweather Seized "The Moment"

Molina Moves to San Diego

By Steve Kim (Photo © Esther Lin / SHOWTIME): In preparation for his bout tonight versus Adrien Broner at the MGM Grand, you didn’t see Carlos Molina working at his usual gyms in the Los Angeles area.

Main Events Files Suit vs. Haymon and Co.

By Steve Kim: As you’ve probably heard by now, Main Events, led by Kathy Duva, has filed a lawsuit against light heavyweight champion Adonis Stevenson, his promoter Yvon Michel (the head of GYM), Al Haymon, Golden Boy Promotions and Showtime, which is largely centered on the match-up between Stevenson and Sergey Kovalev (who is promoted by Main Events) that imploded as Stevenson instead took a deal that sees him face Andrzej Fonfara on May 24th and then...

The Best Laid Plans of Khan

By Gabriel Montoya: At age 27, life could not be more in transition for Amir “King” Khan, 28-3 (19). At the end of May, his new wife, Faryal will give birth to their first child, a daughter. Gone now are the days when he roamed around the world with his Khan-tourage through London, L.A. And Vegas and party like youth would last forever. No game reminds you that ever impending old age renders everyone’s game over at some point. Khan is in a delicate place, still feeling mere moments The Best Laid Plans of Khan

Against the Odds

By Steve Kim (Image by icheehuahua, MaxBoxing): If you haven’t heard, Marcos Maidana, who faces Floyd Mayweather this Saturday night at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, is a heavy underdog. Some books have “Money” as high as a 14-1 favorite. Is that reflective of Mayweather’s superlative skills of Mayweather or Maidana’s limitations? And is this number from the oddsmakers - who, again, are the real experts... Against the Odds

What Will Become The Moment?

By Gabriel Montoya (Photo © German Villasenor): On Saturday, Floyd Mayweather Jr., the top star in boxing, will once again return to the ring and screens across the world.

Golden Civil War?

By Steve Kim (Image by icheehuahua, MaxBoxing): There really wasn’t much going on during the bout between WBC lightweight titlist Omar Figueroa and amateur nemesis Jerry Belmontes. Truth be told, there was much more attention paid to the lingering tension between Oscar De la Hoya and the CEO of Golden Boy Promotions, Richard Schaefer, who once again acted like neither were in each other’s presence despite sitting just a few feet apart. The only thing chillier than the weather out in C Golden Civil War?

Matthysse Turns Back Molina in War

By Steve Kim (Photo © German Villasenor): It hasn’t been a stellar year for boxing (at least in the States) but it had a gem on Saturday night at the StubHub Center as junior welterweights Lucas Matthysse and John Molina waged war over 11 memorable rounds. Finally, ’the Machine’ and his superior skills was able to subdue the hard-hitting banger from Covina, California. But he had to hit the deck twice in the process in the second and the fifth frames from...  Matthysse Turns Back Molina in War

Puncher’s Chance

By Steve Kim (Image by Chee, MaxBoxing): Coming into March, John Molina believed he would be facing Adrien Broner on the Floyd Mayweather-Marcos Maidana undercard, May 3rd in Las Vegas. It turns out Broner’s team didn’t want to face such a heavy-handed banger and decided to take on the much lighter punching Carlos Molina.
