BMB 2015: A Reflection of a Year

Typically this time of year is a time full of reflection and nostalgia about the sport of boxing for BMB, but it’s really easy this time around take inventory for 2015 to be hopeful for the future. Floyd Mayweather Jr. is still retired. Boxing politics are seemingly eroding with the rise of Al Haymon’s democratization […]

Herrera & Collazo: You don’t play boxing

This weekend’s fights were like coinflips in the fates of two fighters who never seem to be on the bright side of the glamour of boxing. Luis Collazo let his fight go after 3 rounds of exposing Thurman and striking fear in his eyes. On the other hand, Herrera showed Lundy that his intimidation and […]

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 […]

The Boxer’s Pride: Served Two Ways

The Fight of The Century. The fight they were talking about for 5 years, and complained about it for hours afterwards, including yours truly. I’m here to share a reflection that maybe it actually was a classic, but in ways that weren’t obvious, and in layers maybe we’ll never know. Or we’ll continue to learn […]

T-30 Days: A Look at Manny Pacquiao

Continuing our analysis, now 30 days out from the biggest boxing match of our generation, we take a look at Manny Pacquiao. Please do take a look at the quick treatise we made for his opponent, Floyd Mayweather Jr. I’ve started talking in the previous post on how us, the BMB team, started this blog to […]

T-30 Days: A Look at Floyd Mayweather Jr.

The bloodmoney boxing crew has been admittedly quiet, in contrast to other boxing fan sources, about the upcoming Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs. Manny Pacquiao superfight and I’m writing today in hopes to analyze why we hesitate in our excitement. Is it doubt? Is it fear? Is it the feeling that we don’t want to be […]

Tacoma 67th Annual Golden Gloves Boxing Tournament

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 […]

Bad Intentions

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 […]

Golovkin Rubio Donaire Walters October 18

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 […]
