Grave Matters

By Marty Mulcahey: A German proverb apropos to legendary boxing figures who have passed away is, "Nothing is as new as something which has been long forgotten." Few sports can match the history and tradition which boxing has produced over the last two centuries, although some long-held customs are falling out of fashion. For instance, it wa Grave Matters

“La Bomba” Takes out Traietti in Two

Buzzkill After Dark

By Steve Kim (Photo © Tri Nguyen): Back during his days on the gridiron for his alma mater, Michigan State, in the early 2000s, if Seth Mitchell was injured and unable to play, the upcoming Spartan game wouldn’t be scrapped. Instead, whoever was next on the middle linebacker depth chart would merely take his spot that Saturday afternoon. That’s the nature of football, “next man up.” In boxing, if the main event falls apart, well, the show doesn’t go on... Buzzkill After Dark

By Gabriel Montoya (Photo © German Villasenor): After a thirteen month layoff, Alfredo "Perro" Angulo, 20-1, 17 KOs got a mere 1:24 of work in his return Saturday night at the Nidi Sports Center in Mexicali, Mexico.

The Return of “El Perdido/Perro,” Alfredo Angulo

By Gabriel Montoya (Photo © German Villasenor): It’s been 13 months since boxing fans have had a chance to see Alfredo “El Perro” Angulo in action. When we last saw him, he was regaining momentum following his loss to Kermit Cintron in May 2009. That momentum was stalled when Angulo’s work visa expired and he had to return home to Mexicali until the issue could be resolved. To compound his problems, Angulo...

By Steve Kim (Photo © German Villasenor): On Monday, I placed a call to IBF President Daryl Peoples in the aftermath last weekend’s controversial bout at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas, where Abner Mares captured their bantamweight title from Joseph Agbeko.

By Steve Kim: Last summer, coming off a string of eye-opening, upset victories against the likes of Norberto Gonzalez, Richard Gutierrez and Henry Crawford, Antwone “The Truth” Smith was one of the sport’s rising young prospects.

By Gabriel Montoya: When we left off in Part One, Dr. Margaret Goodman and I were discussing the problems with licensing fighters and fighter safety in general. We now shift to the topic of Performance Enhancing Drugs in combat sports. In today’s culture, the topic of PEDs is commonplace.
