British Beat: Stuart Hall And Randy Caballero Create Monte Carlo Malaise

Despite its depleted press ranks who continue to deliver a procession of poison-tipped darts — at times with the eagerness of a kid armed with a plastic toy bow; sometimes withering, occasionally humorous, generally ineffective — boxing continues its descent into a state as indecipherable as Hilbert’s sixteenth problem. A case in point unfolds this […]

TQBR Radio 10/21: Gennady Golovkin Vs. Marco Antonio Rubio Recap

31-0 (28 KO). A few belts. A fondness of meat. All are things Gennady Golovkin owns. This past weekend, he added a tennis court in Carson, Ca. — and all of its spectators — to his back pocket. There’s not much wrong with that, either. In fact, if asked nicely, many of us would happily […]

TQBR Radio 10/15: Gennady Golovkin Vs. Marco Antonio Rubio Preview

Apparently the image above (via) is of a book that is a study and critique of pop culture in the 70s and 80s. The title is also, in order, a less-clever nickname for Gennady Golovkin, and what Marco Antonio Rubio is trying to avoid becoming. That’s the best we can do. We’re bloggers. This week […]

Quick Jabs: Al Haymon’s Takeover Bid; Victor Conte’s Selectivity; More

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rRddLDynsCs Kangaroo boxing videos have lost some of their appeal, ever since the kangaroo boxing video where one kangaroo sociopathically strangled another kangaroo well beyond the bounds of good taste. The one above isn’t so creepy. It has become a minor smash, with cause. In this edition of Quick Jabs, we’ll talk about human-punching, mainly, […]

Five Fights To Look Out For In The U.K. This Autumn

Gavin McDonnell vs Vusi Malinga – Sky Doncaster’s McDonnell relinquished his British junior featherweight crown in August, hoping to locate the groove rutted out by his twin brother Jamie — who is world-ranked at the weight. With five years less experience than his sibling, McDonnell (11-0-2, 4 KOs) makes a considerable step up in class against […]

Taylor Beats Soliman, One Of Several Possible “Ugh” Results

Sam Soliman vs. Jermain Taylor on ESPN2 Wednesday night was a can’t-win fight. Nobody was going to come out of this making anyone feel warm and fuzzy. At least Taylor (complete with brain bleed and recent bizarre behavior) didn’t take a beating that made everyone fear for his health — on the contrary, he secured […]

TQBR Radio 10/7: News, Notes And Highlights Episode

You children of the 80s will know exactly what that picture above is, and some of you might even know what the next line is, from there. If not, I’ll help you: “…the Nothing.” That’s more or less what we’ve been left with on our boxing schedules lately. At least as far as quality goes. […]

The Week’s Boxing Schedule, Featuring Sam Soliman, Jermain Taylor, Andre Dirrell And Carlos Molina

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XOhC223kd3A The above video of Jermain Taylor looks like it was made by someone who is definitely not crazy and wouldn’t shoot their cousin… right? Apart from the former middleweight champ/brain-injury-sufferer, there are a few fights on TV, though they’re nothing to write home about (unless you’re one of the boxers fighting, in which case I think at […]
