    Why don’t the Women in boxing rounds go 3 minutes as all other sports that women are in? Boxing is the only sport that the women don’t get the full time as in other sports and it’s not fair for them. They should have 3 minutes in each round as does the men.

    Robert,  I meant to say earlier today that Erskine Wade, a former fringe contender, is 57.  He is fighting Daryl Cunningham, who has a good record, but I won’t say that he is a good fighter.
    Erskine’s son, Antonio, 4-0, also on the card.
    I booked and accompanied Erskine into a fight in South Africa way back when—when Mandella was still in prison.
    If you would give me the go-ahead, I can get on the stage for the fight and have access to the dressing rooms.  Otherwise, I’ll have to rely on friends to leave tickets, usually a risky business.
    Let me know.  Lindy (586) 619-9091

    I have been a boxing coach for over 25yrs and have owned my own club for over 22yrs. People will always have their opinion on a fight and say oh he won or he won and it always goes on and on. I also have been a judge for over 20 yrs. I never give my opinion on a fight but I watched the GGG, Alvarez fight three times and can’t for the life of me call that fight a draw. GGG outscore Alvarez at least in 8 of 12 rds. But what bothered me more then the outcome was, that a judge with any common sense could give the score she did for Alvarez. She doesn’t have any judging skill at all and should never be allowed to judge a match of any kind again. Our sport has been getting kicked around for yrs but this so called judge just gave us all another BLACK EYE. Thank you all for your time and all won’t agree but that’s what makes the game great.

    Well, I just finished watching the Floyd Mayweather Conner McGregor debacle.
    What I witnessed was an insult to pugilism. Shame on Floyd and Shame on Conner. Anyone who knows anything about the sport of boxing knows the fight could have ended in the first round. Shame on everyone who supported this fight. Showtime, the Announcers who attempted to make something out of nothing, the people who paid money to attend the fight or who purchased the fight via pay-per -view, or anyone associated with the fight who made a profit. Shame, shame, shame. Did you really need the money that bad that you were willing to give boxing a black eye. The very sport in which you all have made a GREAT LIVING. Shame, shame , shame. I realize that if some sucker is willing to pay, why not, but somethings are just immoral. In light of the hurricane and the flooding in Texas, Floyd and Conner, man up and donate the proceeds of the fight to the real fighters in Texas. SHAME, SHAME, SHAME.

    I just happened upon this article and from the bottom of my heart I want to say thank you Pete.  I was a Golden Gloves boxer back in the early 80’s and I trained exclusively at Bufano’s gym for 3 years.
    I have 3 kids now and have endlessly tried to explain to them my Bufano’s “life” but to no avail… you’ve nailed it perfectly and for that again I thank you!!!
    On a side note I have to tell a story about that “Toxic Shower

    Last week at MSG Manny P. gave a great retirement speech and a sound farewell in preview to his final bout in a few months.  As we all know boxers are probably the least reliable athletes to keep there word on retiring.  Lennox Lewis kept his word as is generally respected as a fine gentleman.  Manny made it very clear that he was a bigger mission in life to help the people of the Philippines and we all hope that this fantastic boxer can transfer from boxing to politics which have a lot in common especially when the word ruthless can describe the combatants willingness to win.  Just as boxing is not for the faint of heart neither is politics and in the Philippines which I have never visited I would imagine the stakes are often based on life and death.  I hope Manny can help make the lives of his countrymen better.  Having all the money in the world does not always equate to total happiness while having a purpose in life and a mission bigger than boxing could be the saving grace of this athlete who see life after sports.  All to often professional athletes seem to languish after retirement as they seem to lack any purpose.  Taking up a cause you would hope is a great way to give back.  Of course there is different strokes for different folks and going into television or coaching is a fine way to transcend into retirement in any sport but politics can be another path.  Again this is nothing new as other athletes have done this and it seems that the bottom line is your inner confidence that life does not end when you stop competing.  So good luck to the Filipino Senator who may some day become President of his country.  In America an actor became President so why not Manny.

    The greatest story in boxing has yet to be told!

    Amir Mansour a modern day gladiator with a heart of gold. Amir is a true heavy weight boxer with the punching power of Mike Tyson and the quickness of Floyd Mayweather. He is the most feared fighter in the ring and the most loved fighter out of the ring. Amir Mansour examplifies of the American dream; his life story is a mix of a modern day Rocky Balboa and Rubin “Hurricane” Carter. Like most American hero’s he came up from humble begins and fought against all odds, to become what is known now as an Urban Legend!

    In Paris, there is a fabulous bar restaurant run by the sons of Yanek Walczak.  Walczak had three fights with Sugar Ray Robinson. He lost all three but he knocked Sugar Ray down.  That foto dominates a café filled with fabulous memorabilia dedicated to boxing.  Fotos of Jean Paul Belmondo, the famous French actor, when he was a fighter.  Many items regarding Marcel Cerdan whom Walczak also fought and who was a regular, with Edith Piaf , in the café.  Their business card is a foto of the Great Sugar Ray holding a copy of the picture of himself on the canvas.
      This is truly one of the great cafes left in Paris and a must for boxing fans the world over.

    We are happy to share with you about Shadowball, the world’s first portable punching bag. This is something new that could be a nice fit for your news section.We think Shadowball could be a great story for http://www.boxing.com for these reasons:
    -Improves hand speed, rhythm and timing
    -Improves hand-eye and foot coordination
    -Develops punching power
    -Killer aerobic workout
    -Improves ability to hit erratic moving target
    -Challenging, engaging, and fun
    -Portable indoor/outdoor training  
    -Zero installation requirements!
    The Shadowball, in one intuitive process brings multiple layers of physical and cerebral conditioning. It simultaneously trains the athlete to be accurate, fast, agile, quick to adapt, improvise angle of attack, while executing situation-required footwork – all, while looking like a BOSS!
    If you’re interested, please let me know how I can make the writing process easy for you.  Also, our Kickstarter page:  http://kck.st/1xewsjs  contains more information about the invention, including high-res pics! Should you require it, I’m happy to send more hi-res photos.
    Thanks for taking the time to check us out,

  32. Al Sanchez 07:33am, 11/24/2013

    During the Pacquiao-Rios card last night the first fight of the night featured Felix Verdejo, the newest puerto rican prospect. During the transmission the commentators Lampley,Jones and Kellerman were pointing out the absence of a current Puerto Rican champion, and proceeded to mention past champs. I found it to be quite disrespectful that in the conversation Wilfredo Gomez was not mentioned and even more sadly not acknowledged, although he happened to be in the ring with Verdejo. I am a Puerto Rican that has followed boxing all my life, since boxing is in our culture and Gomez has been one of the greatest if not the greatest boxer Puerto. Rico has ever produced. I don’t know the reason why this could’ve happened. But I truly hope that during the next HBO boxing transmission this oversight is mentioned and a apology to Gomez is given. Puerto Rico and our boxers have had a long and good standing relationship with HBO and I don’t think this will be too hard to do.

    Thank you,
    A. Sanchez
