Book Review: I Fought Them All

By Marty Mulcahey: Often times, the greatest boxing stories are not about the fighters who achieved their goals and became world champions but those who tried just as hard and came up a little short. Yes, Lennox Lewis is considered a great heavyweight champion but did he ever survive a shipwreck? Book Review: I Fought Them All

The Curse of the Super Six

By Steve Kim (Photo © Jon Swenson): What circulated around the Worldwide Web on Thursday was made official on Andre Ward’s official Twitter account (@andreward) that night regarding the WBA super middleweight champion’s bout versus Carl Froch in the finals of Showtime’s “Super Six” tournament: "Bad News: I sustained a cut in sparring a few hours ago...

George Benton, the Mayor of North Philadelphia: Part One

By Luis A. Cortes III: At its core, the “Sweet Science” is the art of hitting without getting hit. During the 1950s all the way through the ‘60s, a middleweight out of North Philadelphia truly personified the art of making his opponent miss and pay. George Benton was born on May 15, 1933. His youth was spent on the streets of his impoverished neighborhood where the young Benton was constantly trying to escape his situation... George Benton, the Mayor of North Philadelphia: Part One

A Conversation with Nacho Beristain: Part Three

By Gabriel Montoya: As the evening wound down at Café Slow Down, Ignacio “Nacho” Beristain pulled fewer and fewer punches. Some of those punches thrown are here. Others will have to go in the vault, saved for a rainy day or a book in the future. Ironically and appropriate to last weekend’s Floyd Mayweather-Victor Ortiz fight, the talk turned to Beristain’s favorite fighter and his use of dirty tactics to win...

Suspicious Cotto Faces Margarito Again

By Steve Kim (Photo © Chris Farina / Top Rank): Back in July of 2008, Antonio Margarito and Miguel Cotto engaged in one of the most memorable bouts of the decade at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. After absorbing the best that Cotto had to offer, Margarito would eventually smother and swarm the Puerto Rican star into submission in the 11th round. However, in light of illegal hand-pads that were discovered in Margarito’s gloves in his next fight against Shane Mosley... Suspicious Cotto Faces Margarito Again

Mayweather-Ortiz: Instant Karma or Greatness Self-Denied?

By Gabriel Montoya (Photo © Tom Hogan - Hoganphotos/ Golden Boy Promotions): The main event this past Saturday at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Victor Ortiz was supposed to be the return of a master boxer to the arena he was born to fight in. More than that, it was intended to be a counterpoint to the kinds of soft, tailor-made matches chief rival Manny Pacquiao has engaged in for his last few fights. Ortiz, though only 24- and much less experienced than Mayweather- Mayweather-Ortiz: Instant Karma or Greatness Self-Denied?

Cheap but Legal

By Steve Kim (Photo © Will Hart, HBO-PPV): Does anyone remember the NFL contest in 2002 between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Green Bay Packers? There was nothing historic or particularly memorable about that game (if I recall correctly, I think the Bucs came out victorious in that game, which took place way back when Brett Favre was still the apple of everyone’s eye in Wisconsin) but... Cheap but Legal

Floyd Mayweather, Jr. Ices Ortiz in Four to regain his WBC welterweight title

By Gabriel Montoya (Photo © Will Hart, HBO-PPV): Though entering to the strains of “We Will Rock You,” in the end, it was Victor Ortiz who got his world rocked by Floyd Mayweather Jr. Saturday night at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas in front of a reported 14,687. It was an odd ending but nonetheless shockingly explosive as Mayweather capitalized on Ortiz breaking the cardinal rule of boxing: protect yourself at all times. Following an intentional headbutt by Ortiz, who launched... Floyd Mayweather, Jr. Ices Ortiz in Four to regain his WBC welterweight title

Another Year, Another Mayweather Fight

By Coyote Duran (Photo © Tom Hogan - Hoganphotos, Golden Boy Promotions): Remember the old Nike commercials featuring Bo Jackson where he declares “Another day, another hobby”? (I know they were from about 1986 or 1987 because Danny Glover’s character, Roger Murtaugh in “Lethal Weapon 2,” was musing about it) In boxing, it’s more like, “Another year, another Floyd Mayweather fight.” Yes, Our Sport’s favorite villain is back for his not-quite-annual outing...

Victor Ortiz: Will Youth Be Served?

By Gabriel Montoya (Photo © Gene Blevins - Hoganphotos/Golden Boy Promotions): “Myths and legends die hard in America. We love them for the extra dimension they provide, the illusion of near-infinite possibility to erase the narrow confines of most men’s reality. Weird heroes and mould-breaking champions exist as living proof to those who need it that the tyranny of ’the rat race’ is not yet final.” - Hunter S. Thompson... Victor Ortiz: Will Youth Be Served?
