‘The New’ Ray Robinson is Looking to Make a Name for Himself

‘The New’ Ray Robinson is Looking to Make a Name for Himself

PHILADELPHIA -- It would have been a great story, if not a unique one.  A boxing-obsessed father, maybe even a former fighter himself, names his son after a legendary champion. The kid takes up the sport his daddy was so crazy about, finds he has a natural affinity for it, and does honor to his distinguished namesake. It happened exactly t...

Arthur Conan Doyle and The Croxley Master

ARTHUR CONAN DOYLE’S TALE OF THE PRIZE RING -- Arthur Conan Doyle is known throughout the world as the creator of Sherlock Holmes, the most famous detective of all time.

Golovkin’s Showing versus Jacobs Means Nothing Regarding Canelo

GOLOVKIN-CANELO IN LIGHT OF GOLOVKIN-JACOBS -- If you've been a follower of the sport of boxing or, say, even the NFL, hopefully you've gleaned that no fighter or team is as bad as they looked during their most recent setback, nor are they as spectacular as they performed on their recent best day.

A Night of Unbridled Violence at Madison Square Garden

A Night of Unbridled Violence at Madison Square Garden

A NIGHT OF UNBRIDLED VIOLENCE -- Sometimes—not very often—but sometimes the  intensity, ferocity and even  cruelty that fighters like Mike Tyson, Nigel Benn, Tony Ayala Jr., and Julio Cesar Chavez, Sr. brought to the ring could make a bout almost too edgy to watch. They and a few others engaged in fights that had you on the edge of your ...

Golovkin-Jacobs: A Bigger “Drama Show” Than Expected

Golovkin-Jacobs: A Bigger “Drama Show” Than Expected

GOLOVKIN-JACOBS -- On March 18, Gennady Golovkin and Danny Jacobs met in the ring at Madison Square Garden in a middleweight title-unification bout. It was supposed to be an orderly coronation for Golovkin. But fights are unscripted, and this one unfolded in defiance of expectations. Outside the ring, Golovkin is one of the least-imposing e...

The 50 Greatest Featherweights of all Time Part Four: 20-11

GREATEST FEATHERWEIGHTS, PART IV -- Monsters abound in this, the penultimate installment of The Fifty Greatest Featherweights of all time.

Three Punch Combo: Notes on GGG, the World Boxing Super Series and More

THREE PUNCH COMBO: Boxing can be a funny sport. Often it is not if a fighter wins but how he looks in winning that determines his future fights. Sometimes, not looking sharp in winning can open the door to bigger fights more than looking impressive in victory. This may be the case for Gennady Golovkin following his twelve round unanimous decis...
