Canelo Lara

By Rudy Mondragon In a close fight on Saturday July 12, 2014, Erislandy Lara took on the young Saul Canelo Alvarez. In a fight where many boxing heads knew Canelo had the political power and the backing of a power house promotion company,  the edge would no doubt favor the Mexican fighter. When the scores […]

Canelo Lara

This is a fight that many of us have been waiting to see. I’d like to give a shout to both fighters – Lara for calling out Canelo at his own press conference and Canelo for stepping up like a young G despite his advisors discouraging him to take the fight. Now, then, it’s important […]

    What a night of boxing! I am seriously kicking myself for always procrastinating on Carson City’s Stubhub Home Depot Center boxing events, open-air boxing venues are the shit!

Richard-Schaefer

By Rudy Mondragon Ladies and gentlemen, are we surprised at the recent break up between Oscar De La Hoya and Richard Schaefer? We should not be. The signs were there. One of major importance was Oscar De La Hoya’s deceleration to end The Cold War between his promotion company and Bob Arum’s Top Rank. Messy […]

By Rudy Mondragon Twitter: @bloodmoneyboxin Instagram: Bloodmoneyboxing I just finished watching HBO’s 24/7 of Martinez versus Cotto or as Miguel the “A-Side” prefers it, Cotto versus Martinez. HBO 24/7 started off as a great show that gave fans an in depth look at two fighters leading up to their fight. Now, it’s turned into simply another promotional […]
