    Boxer Taunts Opponent, Promptly Gets Knocked Out Cold (Video)

    I’m not a boxing expert or anything, but I imagine one of the cardinal rules of the sport would have to be something like, “when you have your opponent on the ropes, don’t let up in order to taunt him.” Unfortunately, nobody ever told this to Miguel Zuniga, and he’s obviously not one of our regular […]

    This High School Change Room Boxing Match was One-Sided (Video)

    Picking a winner of the boxing match in the video below, which comes to us from some high school change room, is simple: it’s the dude in the red shorts.  He flat-out dominates from start to finish, both throwing and landing a majority of the punches, while getting hit with very little. However, I must […]

    This Day In Sports History (May 8th) — Fight of the Century

    It was on this day in 1971 that the “Fight of the Century” took place between Joe Frazier and Muhammad Ali at Madison Square Garden in New York.  It was the first of three epic bouts between these two fearless combatants. With both of these heavyweights owning undefeated records, and Frazier owning the belt at […]

    Boxing Fans Fight in the Parking Lot After Alvarez-Trout (Video)

    The super welterweight championship bout between Canelo Alvarez and Austin Trout at the Alamodome in San Antonio this past Saturday had a pretty interesting storyline. Alvarez already held the WBC title and he was looking to win the WBA title as well—a title that his own brother, Rigoberto Alvarez, lost to Trout back in 2011. […]

    Boxer Adrien Broner Pays Woman $200 for Her Spot in Line at the DMV (Video)

    Everybody hates going to the DMV. In terms of things people dread doing, renewing drivers licenses is right up there behind having a root canal and getting audited. Of course, there’s nothing really painful about actually renewing a drivers license or buying license plate tags. You walk up, you look at some stuff, you answer […]

    Last Night’s Leafs-Lightning Game Featured a Bout Between Ali and Frazier?

    If you happened to hear somebody talk about an “Ali-Frazier” fight at last night’s game between the Toronto Maple Leafs and Tampa Bay Lightning, you might have assumed that somebody was commenting on the quality of the bout by making a comparison to one of boxing’s most famous rivalries between Muhammad Ali and Smokin’ Joe […]

    Mike Tyson Sat Down with Katie Couric Yesterday and Posed For This Pic

    On Thursday, former heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson sat down to have a little chat with Katie Couric about his role in a new episode of NBC’s Law & Order: Special Victims Unit. In the episode, you see, Tyson plays a rape victim, which is quite interesting given that he himself was convicted of raping […]

    Kimbo Slice KO’s Shane Tilyard With a Body Shot (Video)

    At the age of 38, Kimbo Slice probably won’t be making an ascent to the top of the boxing world’s heavyweight class, but his 7-0 record since making his professional debut back in May 2011 is impressive, nonetheless–at least, it is to those who refuse to acknowledge the fact that each of those victories came […]

    17-Year-Old Boxer Tubagus Sakti Dies in the Ring in Indonesia (Video)

    I apologize in advance: this is the most depressing sports-related story you’ll read all week. On Sunday, January 27, in Jakarta, Indonesia, a junior flyweight title bout between two 17-year-old boxers was halted in the 8th round. Ical Tobida was handed the victory by technical knock-out after Tubagus Sakti threw up his hands and gave […]
