Gary Shaw’s Version of Conor McGregor Was Kimbo Slice

Gary Shaw’s Version of Conor McGregor Was Kimbo Slice

It has been suggested that, at this 21st century stage of human development, there is no such thing as a truly original idea, only gussied-up versions of previous attempts at creating something unique. Perhaps more so than anyone else, Gary Shaw understands the rationale for pairing boxing great Floyd Mayweather Jr. and mixed martial arts sens...

Can Floyd Mayweather Emulate Other 40-Something Greats?

Can Floyd Mayweather Emulate Other 40-Something Greats?

The only way Conor McGregor stands a chance to defeat Floyd Mayweather on Saturday night at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas is if Money May suddenly looks very, very old. Though unlikely, it’s at the very least possible. Being 40 years old is very old in boxing, and there is no doubt Mayweather’s body has been exposed to a tremendous amoun...

Don’t Be Surprised If Crawford Dominates at Welterweight Too

Don’t Be Surprised If Crawford Dominates at Welterweight Too

The fight was no contest. Nobody predicted it would be that easy, but it was said in this space there was a chance undisputed junior welterweight champ Terence Crawford 32-0 (23) might turn in his best career performance, and the consensus is he very well may have. Crawford dropped previously undefeated Julius Indongo twice and stopped the ...

Remembering the Great Lightweight Champ Joe “Old Bones” Brown

He had a common name and an elegant ring manner. His career is justly celebrated but also largely forgotten. Anyone seeking to summarize in a few concise sentences the life and times of long-reigning lightweight champion Joe “Old Bones” Brown, who was 71 when he passed away on Dec. 4, 1984, is apt to be frustrated. The New Orleans native w...

The Hauser Report: Top Rank – ESPN – Lomachenko – Crawford

A Closer Look at the Officials in the Mayweather-McGregor Fight

A Closer Look at the Officials in the Mayweather-McGregor Fight

No matter one’s feelings about the integrity of the Mayweather-McGregor fight, this is a huge international sporting event. By my loose calculation, the match has already shattered the mark set by the Johnson-Jeffries fight for the most words showered on a boxing match. That 1910 bout at Reno was promoted by Tex Rickard who named himself the...
