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.

Showtime at StubHub

By Steve Kim: This Saturday night, Showtime gets back into the business of broadcasting boxing from the StubHub Center in Carson, California, a noted fight venue where fistic magic seems to happen consistently. There seems to be a certain mystique to this place and fights break out on a regular basis (in and out of the ring). This structure is really a tennis stadium but the most notable volleys have come from pugilists. This upcoming weekend there is a tripleheader... Showtime at StubHub

Algieri meets the world, outlasts Provodnikov by Split Decision

By Gabriel Montoya: Coming into Saturday night’s WBO junior welterweight championship at the Barclay Center in Brooklyn, NY, the first defense of now deposed champion Ruslan Provodnikov, every pundit in boxing, except for Rick Glaser and Bernie Bahrmasel, counted out newly crowned kingpin Chris Algieri. HBO announcer made a reference to what Provodnikov, a ruthless Siberian slugger who stopped Mike Alvarado to take his title and our hearts with a cry for his loving mother...

Is Algieri a new Level of Higher Education for Provodnikov?

By Gabriel Montoya (Photo © Ed Mulholland / HBO): Junior welterweight Chris Algieri was born to fight. He’s been doing it his whole life, be it in Kenpo Karate (which he began studying around age nine) to his wrestling background to his career as a pro world champion kickboxer. Fighting has always been a major facet of his life. A pro boxer since retiring from kickboxing with a 20-11 record and two world titles to his credit, Algieri, 19-0 (8), is also a thinking man’s warrior.

Weighty Matters

By Steve Kim (Photo © Chris Farina / Top Rank): There’s no doubt that the condition of Sergio Martinez’s knee impacted the result of his fight against Miguel Cotto this past weekend at the Madison Square Garden in New York. “Maravilla” was beaten from pillar to post from the very first round. It’s clear - and without taking all the credit away from Cotto’s strong outing - this was a factor. But what’s perhaps not talked about enough is the fact that Cotto - who Weighty Matters

The Rise of Ruslan

By Steve Kim (Photo © German Villasenor, MaxBoxing): There was a time when Ruslan Provodnikov - who faces Chris Algieri in defense of his WBO junior welterweight title from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn (HBO 10 p.m., ET/PT) - could walk into a room with his hair on fire and go unnoticed. Nowadays at least when he goes to fights or other boxing-related functions, he finds himself the center of attention from adoring fans.

Trinidad Enters the Hall of Fame but Remains in Our Hearts

By Gabriel Montoya: I’ll always remember the first time I saw Felix Trinidad fight. It was 1994 and “Tito” was already a champion defending against Ramon “Yori Boy” Campas, who was 56-0 with 50 knockouts at the time. I had been away from the sport for some time; fresh out of school, I had been running around on my own and away from sports in general. I would see the occasional fight when I happened to go home and visit my family. My brother, Thom was and still is a true boxing fan... Trinidad Enters the Hall of Fame but Remains in Our Hearts

King Cotto

By Steve Kim (Photo © Chris Farina / Top Rank): While the official results say that Miguel Cotto stopped Sergio Martinez in 10 rounds this past weekend at a packed Madison Square Garden, the middleweight championship really changed hands in the very first minutes of the bout. Martinez, who came into this fight as the recognized middleweight champion, was sent to the canvas thrice in the first stanza by the heavy and accurate hands of Cotto. The rest of the night was just mere window dressing King Cotto

Cotto-Martinez: Battle of the Ages

By Bill Tibbs (Photo © Chris Farina / Top Rank): One fighter appeared to get old right before our eyes. Meanwhile, another fighter seemed to defy age and time turning back both the clocks and the critics. In Saturday night’s World Middleweight Championship bout, live on HBO from New York, Miguel Cotto, 39-4 (32) and former middleweight champion Sergio Martinez, 51-3-2 (28), lit up the world’s most famous arena, Madison Square Garden, in front of a loud, pro-Cotto crowd. “The City so Nice, They N Cotto-Martinez: Battle of the Ages

Cotto makes Puerto Rican History, Stops Martinez

By Gabriel Montoya (Photo © Chris Farina / Top Rank): Miguel Cotto had long fought in the shadow of other Puerto Rican greats. Try as he might over the years, Cotto just hadn’t gotten over the greatness hump. Saturday night at Madison Square Garden against now former middleweight champion Sergio Martinez, Cotto finally attained historical greatness. By knocking down Martinez four times and hurting him all night to the point where the Argentine’s corner capitulated between the... Cotto makes Puerto Rican History, Stops Martinez

Head-to-Head: Martinez vs. Cotto

By Coyote Duran and Gabriel Montoya: As far as overused adages in boxing go, “crossroads fight” has to be at or near the top of the list. But I’ll be damned if it doesn’t fit the bill here – even if the fight in question involves two hardened ring veterans six years apart from one another in age. How we got to this point tonight is certainly another issue you can debate to death or until your vocal cords give out. I don’t care. Knock yourself out. This is as bitchen as fights get and as far as Head-to-Head: Martinez vs. Cotto

Martinez vs. Cotto: I Can’t Wait

By Jason Gonzalez (Photo © Chris Farina / Top Rank): With less than a week to go before the World Cup begins in Brazil, boxing figured it would be fitting to present its rendition of the grand festivities first. How so? It’s simple: Puerto Rico versus Argentina and Argentina versus Puerto Rico at none other than the world’s most famous arena, Madison Square Garden, the “Mecca of Boxing.” The “Sweet Science” takes center stage on Saturday night in what translates to be one of the most Martinez vs. Cotto: I Can’t Wait

Oscar De la Hoya Reflects on His Past, Present and Future

By Gabriel Montoya: This week, all eyes have been on Oscar De la Hoya for reasons beyond the main. Depending on who you talk to, his company, Golden Boy Promotions, named for his ring moniker, on the verge of falling apart, healing the promotional “Cold War” or was ransacked from within by newly-resigned CEO Dick Schaefer and adviser/manager Al Haymon.

Miguel the Middleweight

By Steve Kim (Photo © Chris Farina / Top Rank): Miguel Cotto, who’s had a distinguished career that one day might lead him to the International Boxing Hall of Fame in Canastota, New York, takes on a new challenge when he faces middleweight champion Sergio Martinez (at a catchweight of 159 pounds). Cotto began his career in 2001 as a junior welterweight. Did he ever think he’d be fighting as a middleweight? “No, it never passed my mind but... Miguel the Middleweight

Seemingly... Martinez vs. Cotto: For Legacy and Beyond

Cotto Comes Home

By Steve Kim (Photo © Mikey Williams / Top-Rank): As the calendar was turning to 2014, Miguel Cotto became the most coveted, unattached boxer in the world. Unlike most others, he was a free agent and not under an exclusive promotional pact. With that, there were two highly lucrative offers on the table for him: face Sergio Martinez on HBO Pay-Per-View or face Saul Alvarez across the street at Showtime. Eventually, Cotto turned down the latter - and a... Cotto Comes Home

Froch knocks scores one-punch knockout

By John J. Raspanti: This time there was no controversy. Carl Froch (33-2, 24 KOs) battled back from an early deficit to knockout George Groves (19-2, 15 KOs) in round eight and retain his IBF and WBA super-middleweight titles before 80,000 raucous boxing fans at Wembley Stadium in London, England. Groves did well in the opening rounds by beating Froch to the punch... Froch knocks scores one-punch knockout

Head-to-Head: Froch vs. Groves II

By Gabriel Montoya and Coyote Duran: This week’s biggest debates have centered on the “domestic” rematch between Carl “The Cobra” Froch and George “Saint George” Groves. Their November 2013 fight for Froch’s WBA and IBF super middleweight titles ended in controversy when referee (and I use that term loosely) Howard Foster stopped the action in Froch’s favor in the ninth frame despite Groves having not hit the deck even once. With 80,000 boxing fans tentatively... Head-to-Head: Froch vs. Groves II

The Latin Snake States His Case

By Steve Kim (Photo © K9 Photos): When Sergio Mora faces Samuel Rogers this Saturday night from the Tropicana Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, he won’t even be on the HBO Latino broadcast (which features Javier Fortuna and Orlando Del Valle in separate bouts) but he doesn’t take this as a slight. “It didn’t upset me because I’m already getting used to the bitterness,” he said with a smile this past Wednesday at the Gamboa Boxing Gym in Whittier, CA. “So it’s either...

Vetyeka: the Beginning of the End for Donaire?

By Gabriel Montoya (Photo © Chris Farina / Top Rank): On Saturday in Macao, China, Nonito Donaire squares off with WBA featherweight champion Simpiwe Vetyeka, 26-2 (16). The fight is for more than a belt. Donaire’s career as an elite, TV fighter may be on the line. It wasn’t always like this. Three years ago, Nonito “The Filipino Flash” Donaire, 32-2 (21), was at the peak of his career. He’d stopped Fernando Montiel in spectacular fashion and quickly rose on media...

R.I.P. Johnny Tapia - By Matthew Aguilar

Reprinted from Matthew Aguilar’s May 2012 El Paso Times blog post. To appreciate what Johnny Tapia achieved in boxing, you must first consider his childhood. His mother was kidnapped, raped and murdered – by way of a screwdriver being plunged into her body over and over and over – when he was all of eight years old. He woke up in time to see her screaming, chained to the back of a pickup. He was ignored when he tried to tell others in the house... R.I.P. Johnny Tapia - By Matthew Aguilar

The Biggest (Domestic) Fight of the Year

By Steve Kim (Photo & Art © Pat Killian): Yeah, promotions featuring the likes of Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao might generate more revenue but it says here that the biggest and best, pure boxing event of 2014 is taking place this Saturday from the historic Wembley Stadium in London, England, where up to 80,000 (yes, you read that correctly) will be in attendance when Carl Froch and George Groves resume their feud.

Stevenson survives knockdown to defeat Fonfara

By John J. Raspanti (Photo © Stephanie Trapp / SHOWTIME): An 8-1 underdog at the opening bell, Andrzej “The Polish Prince” Fonfara wanted to prove that he belonged in the same ring with WBC light heavyweight champion Adonis “Superman” Stevenson. Mission accomplished. Fanfara (25-3, 15 KOs) hung in like grim death, flooring Stevenson (24-1, 20 KOs) in round nine, but the champion dominated the early rounds to win a 12 round...

Julian Williams and Stephen Edwards Head Toward the Light

Gabriel Montoya: The very foundation of boxing is the relationship between a trainer and his fighter. The relationship ranges from father and son to general and soldier. Among that spectrum are a myriad of roles. Above all, trust and the willingness to grow and change to keep the relationship fresh and healthy. Success keeps it moving forward but truly binds it. Often its genesis is the trainer’s ability to show a fighter a signature move and make it work. Such was the case with... Julian Williams and Stephen Edwards Head Toward the Light
