After stewing just a little about it, I still can’t believe I watched 14 competitive fights all in one night. I remember walking in with an expectation that there’ll be much bravado for any type of boxing event, but I came out very humbled of the hometown feel of watching young, hungry, fighters, with their families, put out […]

Stiverne-Wilder

Bermane “B.WARE” Stiverne (24-1, 21 KOs) will be defending his WBC heavyweight title against Deontay “The Bronze Bomber” Wilder (32-0, 32 KOs) on Saturday, January 17 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Many believe this could be the fight where a U.S. born heavyweight fighter is crowned with the title. This is of great significance as there has not […]

This past weekend’s Top Rank card headlined the champion Manny Pacquiao vs “The Fighting Collegiate” Chris Algieri and the co-main event Zhou Shiming vs. the sturdy journeyman Thai Onesongchaigym. On the surface Top Rank was selling the story about the People’s champ and Cinderella Man, and Macau’s champion Shiming attempting to prove his mettle in […]

qa-bernard-hopkins

By Rudy Mondragon On Saturday November 8th, 2014, Bernard Hopkins stepped into the ring for the 64th time. Another historic night for Bernard for at the age of 49, two months shy from turning a half century young, Hopkins fought for not one but three championship belts. Already the oldest man to capture and defend championships belts, Bernard […]

qa-bernard-hopkins

No, B-hop is not the latest dance craze.  It isn’t a poor attempt at rapping either.  Bernard Hopkins is, simply, the ageless one. I’m not going to sit here and list all of his accolades, records, etc. This here is simply my commentary about a man who has surpassed all expectations, especially at his age. […]

Stubhub-600x3001-530x317

Another great fight coming up with Golovkin vs Rubio (trained by Robert Garcia) and Donaire vs Walters, promising a scintillating fight night in the always-game venue and audience of the Stubhub Center in Carson, California. These two fights are interesting in that the there’s an obvious favorite by boxing pundits, and a recognizable name in […]

Salido

By Rudy Mondragon What else is new? Orlando Salido (42-12-2, 29 KOs) steps into the ring and wins in exciting fashion. The man with the short end of the stick last night was worthy contender, Terdsak Kokietgym (53-5-1, 33 KOs) from Thailand. Both came out swinging in the first round and Terdsak was able to earn the […]

mayweather-maidana-boxing-1

I ignored the buzz of my phone as I was enjoying my birthday dinner at Altura in Seattle, as my future wife reached for hers and asked, “Do you want to know?” I responded knowingly, looking at the clock and noticing it was around an hour past fight time, “Nah, I know.” Coming into the fight […]

_adMayweatherMaidanaII

Floyd “Money” Mayweather (46-0, 26 KOs) will take on “El Chino” Maidana (35-4, 31 KOs) for a second time in Las Vegas Nevada. In their first match, El Chino came out strong, but a little to fast. He burned out, gaining early success, until Mayweather dominated the second half of the fight, ultimately winning via majority […]

LopezCuellar

By Rudy Mondragon Juan Manuel Lopez (34-5, 31 KOs) was brutally knocked out in the second round by Jesus Marcelo Andres Cuellar (25-1, 19 KOs) in Las Vegas at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino. Lopez looked like damaged goods. He is a fighter who has not recovered from the beatings he received from Orlando […]
