    Ridiculous tv show

    I was watching a tv show on Spike (the only good thing on that channel is UFC) called Deadliest Warrior or something. Anyway, it supposedly scientifically (yeah right) matches warriors from different eras against each other. Today was the first episode; Apache vs Galdiator. Guess who won...

    Price and Wilson go pro

    British Super Heavyweight David Price, who did very well in this past Olympics in China, and American Mike Wilson (beat Travis Kaufmann in the amateurs) are both going pro! Price is big (6'8), and pretty good overall. He's been stopped as an amateur, so hopefully as a pro he can get some...

    Matt Light vs. Channing Crowder

    Did anyone see the "fight" between Matt Light of the Patriots and Channing Crowder of the Dolphins? Once again, a black player lost control when his team was losing (watch any Ravens loss) and he pulled Matt Light's head down. Crowder lost his helmet, and Light got up swinging, grabbing on to...

    Not enough black coaches...again

    From ESPN Just the typical read on how too few black coaches there are (also states 54% of NCAA players are non-white, yet no one complains about that). The usual. What's interesting, is down at the bottom, the comments that fans made about the article. Seems to be a lot of intelligent...

    Kessler-Hopkins in the works?

    There's a post on boxrec stating that a Danish paper (BT) has reported that Kessler and Hopkins have agreed to a fight. Of course it's all rumor and speculation right now, but I see it as a very real possiblity. Kessler has been considering a move up to Light Heavyweight for a while now. I...

    Those Great African Heavyweights

    Following Peter's loss to Vitali, I thought it would be appropriate to look at some real African Warriors. Gerrie Coetzee is one of my favorites, he had really fast hands, was a very good counterpuncher, and one of the top Heavyweights of his day. It's really too bad a bout with Holmes never...

    White Heavyweights

    As we all know, white heavyweights are dominating the division. I thought it would be good if we could have a list of white heavyweights, with links to their records and info. That way, we can keep track of who's fighting, and when, and if anyone new turns pro. I think I've got most of the...

    We’re all Americans...right?

    Finnish folk/viking metal band Turisas is one of my favorite bands. Finland seems to be producing the best music these days, and gives you some great songs to listen to instead of that same rap/hip hop you hear coming out of everyones cars these days. Turisas has a concept album out called...

    Boxing- How it got where it is now

    I'm sure that most of us know boxing's 'roots'. Names like Jeffries, Dempsey, Tunney, and Marciano are all familiar to us. After Johansson's brief reign in 1959, the white heavyweight almost became a thing of the past. From 1960 on, there was usually one decent white heavyweight contender, but...

    Obnoxious Tourists

    From Yahoo Despite the fact France finished third to last, the article quickly digresses into a typical media hate fest for the French. Of course the Indians and Chinese were totally skipped over. This is one of the few "surveys" I've ever seen that focuses on who finished "third to last"
