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.

The Soapbox: Dec. 26, 2013

By Steve Kim: Hope everyone out there had a good Christmas. OK, now that the niceties are out of the way, it’s time for another edition of “The Soapbox.” This submission comes in from a Mark Schoeman, who, while being a fan of one Paulie Malignaggi, took exception to a few things the “Magic Man” said in this recent article before his December 7th bout against Zab Judah. And Mark doesn’t just make a lot of good points in response to Malignaggi’s comments but the past and current media The Soapbox: Dec. 26, 2013

14 for ‘14

By Steve Kim: A new year is upon us and as the calendar turns, we look forward to a fresh slate of fights on the horizon. Already the schedule is being set for the spring and winter months of 2014. But what are the best fights that can be made realistically? Let’s face it; with the current divide existing in the marketplace, who you are aligned with from either a promotional or network perspective bearing on your options. Well, here’s one scribe’s opinion of 14 fights he’d like to 14 for ‘14

Bradley and Provodnikov: Fighters of the Year

By Gabriel Montoya (Photo © German Villasenor): In a decade thus far that seen a slow yet steadily rising tidal wave of popularity and quality for this most “dying” of sports, 2013 was an embarrassment of violent riches of varying heights and depths. We love this sport because the men and women who partake in it risk the lives and livelihoods in ways we never will. Those who give and receive the most push through the barriers most of us would crash and burn against. Just as well, those equally Bradley and Provodnikov: Fighters of the Year

Schaefer Sees no Thaw in the Cold War

By Steve Kim (K9’s ’Cold War’ Image by © Chee, MaxBoxing): Another year in boxing has come and gone and while it was very eventful, it saw the continued “Cold War” between its superpowers, Golden Boy Promotions and Top Rank Promotions (who - once again - did not cross paths and co-promote any events in 2013) thrive. They have managed to coexist by existing in separate universes (Showtime and HBO, respectively). And guess what? Don’t expect to see any thaw in 2014... Schaefer Sees no Thaw in the Cold War

Witherspoon Jr. Wins By Default

J. R. Jowett reporting from ringside. It started small and got smaller. Damon and Marty Feldman’s "The Celebrity Team" planned a modest grassroots show of prelim bouts for at the Marple Sports Arena in Broomall, PA on Saturday. As is often so with such endeavors, the show shrunk. By first bell, there were four bouts plus an exhibition. The exhibition was a brisk scrap in which Philly’s Anthony Abbruzzese had Baltimore’s Allen Burris nearly out on his feet in the third and final round. But it Witherspoon Jr. Wins By Default

The Mismatch Report Vol. 4: Postmortem Edition

By Gabriel Montoya: The Mismatch Report is not intended to do anything but bring awareness to the general public about potentially dangerous matches that could result in serious injury or worse for one or both combatants. This is the hurt business. The promoters want to move their stable forward. The matchmakers want to keep their guys winning, developing and progressing. That’s the business. Calling a matchmaker on a mismatch doesn’t really do a whole lot. That position, whether it The Mismatch Report Vol. 4: Postmortem Edition

K9’s Holiday Mailbag

By Steve Kim: Well, there isn’t much going on in the world of boxing till we turn the calendar to 2014 and because of that, well, there isn’t all that much to write about. Maybe I could do a pound-for-pound list...eh…forget that. So it’s time to get my Doug Fischer on and break out a mailbag (Hey, Maxboxing needs the content and page views)...

The Ratings Game

By Steve Kim (K9’s "Cold War" image by Chee, MaxBoxing): As boxing’s “Cold War” shows no signs of thawing, those who cover boxing are now subjected to various spin-doctoring from the two major networks (HBO and Showtime) facilitating this blood feud between Top Rank Promotions and Golden Boy Promotions as they each insist it is the dominant television entity in the sport.

About a Beating

By Gabriel Montoya (Photo © Tom Casino / SHOWTIME): The best thing about boxing is that once the bell rings, all the hype and circumstance go out the window, allowing two warriors to fight it out like skilled animals, putting every ounce of will into breaking each other. Whoever is better prepared weathers whatever storm the other brings and - if the judges ain’t corrupt - wins. Saturday night, the judges were clean as a whistle and Argentine boxer-puncher Marcos “El Chino” Maidana, 35-3 ( About a Beating

Problem Solver

By Steve Kim (Photo © Esther Lin / SHOWTIME): By nature, Adrien Broner, who came into the weekend as the undefeated WBA welterweight beltholder, is a brash and cocky sort. To his fans, he’s a fun and colorful personality with transcendent talent. His detractors believe he is a minstrel show dressed up in boxing trunks and gloves, a parody of himself. Broner is among the most polarizing figures in boxing. You either love or loathe him. And up until his fight with Marcos Maidana at the A Problem Solver

Santa Cruz, Rested and Relaxed in 2013

By Steve Kim (Photo © K9 Photos): As I walked through the beehive of activity that was the MGM Grand Hotel on the weekend of September 14th when Floyd Mayweather faced Saul Alvarez in the year’s biggest boxing event, I was struck by a particular scene near the Rouge (a favorite watering hole for us boxing scribes) and the adjacent slot machines. A huge throng of cameras emerged and fans who had come in for all the festivities swarmed around one Leo Santa Cruz. Yeah, he now draws a crowd in Santa Cruz, Rested and Relaxed in 2013
