Mike McTiguevs TIger Flowers

Throwback Thursday: Mike McTigue Slips Past Tiger Flowers

Is boxing merely reflection of what we are? Or does combat create that which we aspire to be? Heroes, villains, martyrs and murderers are created at the bend of a knee to boxing’s stubborn rule, and the 1920s busted at the seams with tropes, devices and pugilistic deus ex machinae. A man named Mike McTigue […]

Another One Gets Away: Amir Khan Vs Kell Brook

Wednesday, we got the delay, perhaps death, of the biggest fight in the U.K. and a damn good fight on every other part of the globe, too. Amir Khan vs Chris Algieri was officially announced via news release Wednesday for […]

The Adonis Stevenson Vs Sergey Kovalev Mess

On Tuesday came news that Main Events, the promoter of Sergey Kovalev, had withdrawn him from a purse bid for a fight with light heavyweight champion Adonis Stevenson, thus, again, ensuring that one of the best couple match-ups in the sport is not going to happen anytime soon. The whole ordeal reverses who’s most to blame […]

TQBR Radio 4/14: Lucas Matthysse Vs. Ruslan Provodnikov Preview

Word on the (absence of) street is that hole in the space-time continuum up there used to be the building where Lucas Matthysse and Ruslan Provodnikov signed their contracts to fight one another. It cannot be confirmed, however, as the Hounds of Hell now guard the area, per the instructions of Momma Provodnikov. More seriously, […]

Andy Lee And Peter Quillin Battle To Draw In Brooklyn

BROOKLYN — “Irish” Andy Lee (34-2-1, 24 KO) and Peter “Kid Chocolate” Quillin (31-0-1, 24 KO) opened Saturday’s “Premier Boxing Champions” broadcast on NBC with a middleweight tussle which had lost some of its luster after Quillin failed to make weight on Friday. Nobody told Lee and Quillin, though, and they fought to a rousing split draw as the […]

Frank Galarza, Ukrainians Rule ShoBox Friday

Frank Galarza exploded for a knockout Friday on ShoBox, while two newish pro Ukrainian fighters had comparatively different wins on Showtime’s prospect-oriented program. Galarza (pictured above, via @shosports) has shown a knack for sudden knockouts on ShoBox, having pulled a similar trick to start 2014. The junior middleweight’s victim this time was Sheldon Moore, and […]

Fedosov, Dennis, Thompson, Adams Advance On Boxcino

We probably won’t get an authentic borderline contender from the latest editions of the ESPN’s Boxcino tournament format like we did the previous two, but on Friday night we at least got something worth watching in all four bouts, or three, depending on how much you can tolerate grotesquely swollen ears that lead to a […]

Bittersweet: Danny Garcia Vs Lamont Peterson Preview And Prediction

The sweetest thing we’ve gotten yet from Al Haymon’s aspired-for 2015 boxing takeover, or that we’re even scheduled to get, arrives Saturday night when Danny Garcia faces Lamont Peterson on NBC’s “Premier Boxing Champions.” Anyone embittered by the manner in which it has arrived is entitled. Yet a pugilistic confection it remains. We were forced to […]

Rebuilding: Boxing Takes Back NBC

“As the heavyweights go, so goes boxing.” It would be convenient to look at the state of today’s heavyweight division and allow the whole sloppy lot of those fighters to shoulder the blame for boxing’s inability to compete for television time with more mainstream, or more marketable sports in the U.S. Whether or not it […]
