The Boxing X Factor

Maybe I’m just amazed at why Trump is frighteningly a front runner, but somethings making me want to wonder what is different about today’s boxing. I’ve been reflecting deeply on what characteristics and/or behavior patterns a boxer needs to demonstrate to profit from the sport, and in turn have the sport grow in stature from the […]

The best that ever wasn’t: Charley Burley and the hidden knights of the Black Murderer’s Row

I’m coming to the realization on exactly why boxing is truly one of the greatest human achievements, but also one of the most wicked in sports history.

The “Elite” Gap

With the grace of hindsight, it’s nice to reflect on the Broner vs. Porter fight, a fight that means so much for the welterweight division following Guerrero vs. Thurman back in March simply because of the exciting matchup, AND two more candidates that thin the pool for the latter half of the year’s big fights. It was […]
