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 […]


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 […]


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 […]

Broner Matt.

By Rudy Mondragon Berto Comeback  Andre Berto made his way back to the ring after a year of inactivity and two loses (Soto Karass and Robert Guerrero). Two things were learned from this fight. 1) Andre Berto appears to be the same as before and has not shown much improvement since working with Virgil Hunter. 2) […]


What’s up BMB Fam! This post is dedicated to the upset this past weekend that still had me deep in thought about matchups and what makes a match so exciting. I’m definitely new to the Kell Brook bandwagon but was thoroughly impressed by the Sheffield Steel he unsheathed upon the game Shawn Porter. I was […]


By Rudy Mondragon  Philadelphia, Pennsylvania has a rich boxing history. It is home to some of the rawest fighters the boxing scene has ever seen. From the hard punching Bennie Briscoe to hall of famers like Joey Giardello and Philly’s forever Heavyweight Champion, Joe Frazier. The list of old timers and modern day fighters from Philly can […]

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! That venue almost always brings in real hungry fighters in it to win it and also put on a good show! Robert Guerrero and Yoshihiro Kamegai […]

Processed with Rookie

The Provodnikov vs. Algieri fight on Saturday night at New York’s Barclay center ended in a split decision, with the decision leaning towards the hometown and former kickboxing champion Chris Algieri. Although I personally am disappointed at the result, and the overall uphill climb Provodnikov seemingly has to traverse after impressively fighting really good fighters all […]
