    Bernard Hopkins vs Sergey Kovalev Preview

    in Sports

     


    On Saturday night, HBO will be live from Atlantic City, as two of the top three light heavyweight boxers in the world will be on display. Golden Boy Promotions presents champion vs champion as “The Alien”, Bernard “The Executioner” Hopkins will be squaring off against Sergey “Krusher” Kovalev in a bout for the WBO and IBF World Light Heavyweight Titles, as well as the WBA Super World Light Heavyweight Title. This unification fight will give great backing to the winner of this fight being touted as the best light heavyweight in the world, although Adonis Stevenson would have something to say about that.


    The future hall of famer, Bernard Hopkins just continues to keep going. He now stands with a record of 55-6-2 with 32 KOs, but the thing that sets him apart from everyone else is his resume of work through his long and extremely successful career. He successfully defended his IBF middleweight title for 19 defenses which lasted over an 11 year span. He may not have won every fight, but when you mention the people he has fought, it’s unmatched by anyone in the sport.

    Bernard Hopkins vs Sergey Kovalev Preview

    in Sports

    No matter what kind of fight is on the schedule, you can count on promotional companies and other PR entities to come up with gimmicks and weird stuff to get blood pumping. This weekend, "The Alien" (a 50-year-old guy who somehow is still relevant in boxing) meets "The Krusher" (a guy who displaces brain cells with a smile). Because Bernard Hopkins and Sergey Kovalev, two quality light heavyweights on HBO, aren't enough. And this week on TQBR Radio, James Foley of Bad Left Hook and Queensberry Rules' Patrick Connor probe the ins, outs and what-have-yous of Hopkins-Kovalev. But there's other stuff to talk about, too. Like last weekend's Andrzej Fonfara vs Doudou Ngumbu Showtime card (that also had the absurd Javier Fortuna vs Abner Cotto and respectable Tomoki Kameda vs Alejandro Hernandez), and a few other odd offerings like Felix Sturm vs Robert Stieglitz, Tomasz Adamek vs Artur Szpilka, and the HBO undercard of Sadam Ali vs Luis Carlos Abregu. Thanks for tuning in!

    Sergey Kovalev vs Bernard Hopkins Recap with Kelsey McCarson

    in Sports

    To quote the guy who played Socrates in Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure, "Like sands through the hourglass, so are the days of our lives." How that relates to boxing is that fighters get old and whatever. And this past weekend, Sergey Kovalev packed Bernard Hopkins' wrinkly bags for him and showed him the door. Whether or not Hopkins walks through said door is another story entirely. This week on TQBR Radio, James Foley of Bad Left Hook and Patrick Connor of The Queensberry Rules welcome to the show Kelsey McCarson of The Sweet Science and Bleacher Report. Apart from the usual boxing discussion (which will included Kovalev-Hopkins, Sadam Ali's victory over Luis Carlos Abregu, the HBO undercard, a Wladimir Klitschko vs Kubrat Pulev preview and more), we'll also be talking about Kelsey's effort to raise funds and awareness for a young boy diagnosed with bone cancer. Thanks for tuning in!

    Heroes of Katrina: 10 Years After /The St Bernard Parish Fire Department

    in Writing

    When the winds of Katrina began to die down, the flood waters began to rise.  For St. Bernard Parish, the flooding was nearly absolute.  99% of the structures had been flooded and destroyed.  In some places 25 feet of water lapped up upon the rooftops.


    St Bernard Parish is the only county in the history of the United States to have been nearly completely destroyed.


    As of the census of 2000, there were 67,229 people (an increase of 598 or 0.9% over the previous decade), 25,123 households, and 18,289 families residing in the parish. The population density was 145 people per square mile (56/km²). There were 26,790 housing units at an average density of 58 per square mile (22/km²).


    After Katrina, with an entire population reeling from the destruction, many evacuated.  Those that remained waited for the waters to subside and began the long process of re-building.


    For perspective, as of the census of 2010, there are 35,897 people.  The community is still re-building 10 years later.


    During the storm, the St Bernard Parish Fire and Sherriff's Department deployed to aid the community as the flood waters rose and remained.


    Chief Thomas Stone is our special guest.


    Chief Stone recently told us, "So much has occurred with the recovery and rebuilding of our departments, such as building new stations, replacing our apparatus, hiring and training new firefighters. Our departments have been to hell and we’re not back yet.  We had a mass departure of senior officers in the years after Katrina, threat of layoffs of firefighters and all the red tape trying to rebuild. We have not even replaced all of our equipment lost through the Public Assistance Project Worksheet program 9 ½ years later".


    Please join us for what promises to be a fascinating show about perseverance, reality, hopes, and dreams.
