Heavyweights Take Boxcino On A Turn For The Worse On ESPN2

Last year’s Boxcino tournaments on ESPN2’s Friday Night Fights did all right, and the reviews for the first of two 2015 editions weren’t so bad, either. The heavyweights were up this weekend in the second 2015 installment, and… no. It’s not that they didn’t deliver some good things. The first two fights were close, requiring […]

Floyd Mayweather Vs Manny Pacquiao, At Long Last

Spoiled: Gennady Golovkin Vs. Martin Murray Preview And Prediction

The Gennady Golovkin Show is one of boxing’s best shows to watch, one of its worst to co-star in with the man they call GGG.

(Al Haymon, via) NBC. NBC Sports. Showtime. Spike. ESPN, probably. And as of today, CBS, too. Al Haymon’s “Premier Boxing Champions” has spread its tendrils into every major U.S. network — save one — that has broadcast boxing in the last several years, plus some new channels, too.

TQBR Radio 2/17: Gennady Golovkin Vs. Martin Murray Preview With Jimmy Tobin

There’s no better way to make your winter more Mexican than adding a little Gennady Golovkin to it. Well, there might be a few better ways, but they aren’t as likely to hatchet some brains cells before a charmingly eccentric post-fight interview, anyway. If you like fight, then Golovkinville is where you’re buying your 22-acre […]

Stanley Ketchel vs Billy Papke III

Throwback Thursday: Stanley Ketchel Regains Title, Crushes Billy Papke

In the pantheon of mythical characters from boxing history, a few stand taller than the rest. Some by popularity, others by lack of film and evidence to contradict the pugilistic ageism, but all have achieved an urban legend status among boxing fans.

TQBR Radio 2/10: Return Of Boxcino Preview With Matthew Swain

We know how you feel, Jay-Z and Beyonce. The team here at The Queensberry Rules was also horrified when TQBR Radio wasn’t nominated for any awards. They need to respect the artistry. So what if we can’t make that Paul McCartney character famous like Rihanna did? What
