Erickson Lubin Moves From The Garage To Fox Sports 1

Erickson Lubin has come a long way from training in an Orlando garage. Back then, it was just Lubin, his “brother” — fellow boxer and co-training partner Dennis Galarza — and trainer Jason Galarza, Dennis’ father. For most of his amateur career, Lubin worked out of that two-car garage while piling up national accolades. Lubin, […]

The fight would likely take place in November in Macau, with junior welterweights Ruslan Provodnikov and Brandon Rios potentially facing each other on the undercard. “We have a Pacquiao offer on the table and we are […]

Drunk History: Joe Louis Vs. Max Schmeling

http://youtu.be/7_YFzMMTwXM That this slipped by us is tragic. Thanks for getting us back on point, Reddit. “Drunk History” on Comedy Central is terrific, and it took on a great moment in boxing history last week. The above video is incomplete, but if you have any kind of “On Demand” through your cable or satellite provider, […]

TQBR Radio 7/8: Saul “Canelo” Alvarez Vs. Erislandy Lara Preview

Come on now, Erislandy Lara. Any resemblance that pigeon bears to Saul “Canelo” Alvarez is purely coincidental, and you know it. But finally us boxing fans get what we’ve been asking for: a fight that, on paper, is about as good as they get. From high level fighting and style contrasts, to no dearth of […]

In The Interest Of Establishing Real Boxing Champions, The 2014 List

(June 7, New York City: Miguel Cotto reacts after a TKO against Sergio Martinez in the 10th round of the middleweight championship fight at Madison Square Garden. Credit: Noah K.

Jake LaMotta vs Marcel Cerdan

Throwback Thursday: Jake LaMotta Halts Marcel Cerdan, Takes His Belt

Chewing through life a mile a minute and leaving messy footprints is just what many fighters do. Or did. Few fighters make it to old age, marbles properly collected, and sometimes when they do, it makes no sense. They’re like the familial legends that saw a distant great uncle live to the ripe old age […]

Terence Crawford vs Yuriorkis Gamboa 4 (Chris Farina - Top Rank)

TQBR Radio 7/1: Terence Crawford Vs. Yuriorkis Gamboa Recap With Tim Starks

A pattern is emerging: 2014 is quickly becoming “the year where unlikely bouts become memorable struggles.” In two months, we had three fights with unlikely Fight of the Year smoke trails following them in Matthysse-Molina and Guerrero-Kamegai. And then Terence Crawford (above, right; via) toppling unbeaten Cuban almost-star Yuriorkis Gamboa had our blood flowing. As […]

Quick Jabs: Cotto Vs. Martinez Pay-Per-View Numbers; The Golden Boy Legal Action; More

If you’re looking for a classy place to sign a contract with Al Haymon, one resplendent with gravitas, why not McDonalds? Lightweight Miguel Vazquez making the Haymon move means we can almost surely forget about starting a new championship lineage by fighting Terence Crawford, since Crawford is represented by Top Rank, which despises Haymon. It’s […]

Terence Crawford Knocks Out Yuriorkis Gamboa In Fight Of The Year Candidate

Omaha, Neb. hadn’t seen a world title fight since Joe Frazier’s 1972 annihilation of Ron Stander, so it was safe to say this bout was overdue. The 11,000 who packed the CenturyLink Center certainly seemed to think so, and they were not to be disappointed as Terence Crawford defended the lightweight belt he won from […]

Matt Korobov Defeats Jose Uzcategui By Mind-Numbing Decision

Despite being on the fans’ radar for a while, we still didn’t know a whole lot about middleweight Matt Korobov coming into this fight on the undercard of Yuriorkis Gambo-Terence Crawford on HBO from Omaha, Neb. He’s been a pro for six years, but didn’t step up competition in a while, which is usually a […]
