The Chicago Bears Are (Finally) Starting To Get Pissed

Many pro boxers, martial artists, hockey players and other physical sports professions often say they can’t settle into a game or match until they’ve felt their first couple blows to the head.  It settles the nerves and helps them focus.  Maybe that is what is finally happening for the Chicago Bears.  After taking two ridiculously hard uppercuts from the Patriots and Packers...

ACC Coming Attractions: UNC-Duke highlights weekend of avoiding traps

Other than a Thursday night showdown because Duke and North Carolina, this week is kind of the preamble to a huge final week of ACC football.

Stay tuned! MORE THAN A VICTORY BELL AT...

WATCH: Heavyweight Champ Wladimir Klitschko Knocks Out Kubrat Pulev in the 5th Round

If you are a fairweather boxing fan like myself you know the big names in the game. Back when Iron Mike was fighting you found a way to watch the fight. When Evander Holyfield was still a bad man you watched once or twice. Heck, you might have even known who George Foreman was outside of his awesome grill.But you grow tired of these strategic fighters that go the distance all the...

A Puncher’s Chance: Five Boxing Knockouts That Turned Around A Sure Defeat

The puncher’s chance is a beautiful thing. A boxer can be barely standing, fighting more by muscle memory than will, and yet there is always a chance that a single perfect punch can turn a hopeless fight — and sometimes even a drooping career — around in a split second. This wild card factor is behind some of boxing’s most electric moments. It’s exactly what saved Andy...

When if Ever Will We See the Next Great American Heavyweight Champ?

As I sit here in this Brooklyn hotel room the night before I cover the somewhat anticipated (although non-title) welterweight bout between world champion Danny Garcia (28-0 16 KOs) and hungry hopeful Rod Salka (19-3 3 KOs), I find myself reflecting on conversations I’ve had with my father, grandfather, and one I had with an older gentleman standing around the Barclays Center at...

Ghislain Maduma looking to bounce back from stoppage loss to Kevin Mitchell

His first loss as a professional pales in comparison to the obstacles lightweight contender Ghislain "Mani" Maduma (16-1, 10 KOs) has overcome outside the ring.

America finally has a boxing heavyweight we can get behind

(Credit: thesportsquotient.com) I contend the reason many people believe boxing to be a dead sport (although that’s not even close to realistic), is because there has been a lack of legitimate American fighters in the heavyweight division. The division popularized by guys like Mike Tyson, Evander Holyfield, George Foreman, Larry Holmes, and Muhammad Ali has declined over the years...

Review — “Bouts Of Mania: Ali, Frazier, Foreman, And An America On The Ropes”

It seems an eternity since the heavyweight division was relevant. As a teenager in the 1990s, I watched awestruck as Evander Holyfield, Riddick Bowe, Lennox Lewis and a couple of others temporarily loaned each other the title. Back then being the heavyweight champion of the world made you famous, and it was big business. There was a time before that though, when heavyweight boxing...

Top 5 strongest heavyweights in boxing history

Who Were the Strongest Heavyweight Boxers All-Time? Strength is an often misunderstood aspect of boxing, especially by the casual sports fan, because so many think strength = power. In truth, punching power is generated by sound technique more than sheer muscle, especially for concussive punchers. Only a few rely even partly on brute strength to generate bombs. Instead, physical...

George Foreman Wants Bernard Hopkins to Retire

Some irony and some truth to Big George’s words to Bernard Hopkins. Here is what he had to say to TMZ. “Leave while you can. When the curtain closes, you don’t want to be laying on your back in the middle of the ring.” When asked what he would say to Hopkins, Foreman told us, “Bernard, you looked great! Fantastic! Isn’t that the way you wanna go out? You looked unbeatable...
