The Big Ten Tournament is nearly here, so to help us break down the bracket, we catch up with Buckeye legend, and Grantland writer Mark Titus. We discuss Ohio State's road to a possible tournament champhionship, whether there are any sleepers, the First Team All Big Ten Team, Ohio State's NCAA chances, as well as the fallout from Syracuse and other major college basketball stories.
Well that sucked. Brandon Rios vs Mike Alvarado III was all but guaranteed to be a cracking bout, even if it didn't last long. The last part was true, because the fight was over after just three rounds, but it was all Rios, all day. There seem to be more questions about Alvarado in the wake of the bout than anything else, and rightfully so. This week on TQBR Radio, James Foley of Bad Left Hook and The Queensberry Rules' Patrick Connor welcome back Eric Raskin, ESPN and Grantland contributor, and co-host of the Ring Theory podcast. With a predictable early year gap coming in the boxing schedule, it leaves us open to talk Raskin's article about James "Buster" Douglas vs. Mike Tyson in Playboy, recent structural issues in the sport, and more. Thanks for tuning in!

Here at Queensberry Rules Radio, we hope that nobody is taking our prognostication skills seriously. Basically when we predict a fight will end a certain way, just assume the opposite will happen. For instance, last week we predicted that the fun Showtime tripleheader we watched would probably suck, and it didn't. Robert Guerrer-Yoshihiro Kamegai was surprisingly competitive, Vasyl Lomachenko's clinic win over Gary Russell Jr. was high quality stuff, and even Devon Alexander vs. Jesus Soto Karass had a few momenths of intrigue. This week on TQBR Radio, Bad Left Hook's James Foley and Patrick Connor of Queensberry Rules cover that card, probably incorrectly, and preview this weekend's HBO card featuring Terence Crawford vs Yuriorkis Gamboa. Joining the blustery bloggers this week is author and Grantland editor Rafe Bartholomew. Thanks for tuning in! (Photos in slideshow: Joe Miranda)
Every once in a while, we as boxing fans are reminded that "that's why they get in there and actually fight." Sometimes match ups sound absurd or likely one-sided, and because of that we lose sight of the old, throw away phrase that, in boxing, "anything is possible." This past weekend, Miguel Cotto usurped the middleweight throne with no fistic regrets, grinding Sergio Martinez to dust, and making approximately 3/4 of the boxing community look stupid in the meantime. What does it mean? Was Sergio Martinez shot? Was Miguel Cotto underrated? Has anyone ever actually beaten Tetris? What was in Marsellus Wallace's suitcase, damnit??? Bad Left Hook's James Foley and Patrick Connor of Queensberry Rules will attempt to answer at least a few of those questions. This week, the asinine aphrodisiacs are joined by Eric Raskin, boxing contributor to ESPN, HBO and Grantland, and author of The Moneymaker Effect. Also, check out Raskin's podcast with William Dettloff, Ring Theory. Also on the menu, a preview of Ruslan Provodnikov vs Chris Algieri. Thanks for tuning in!
Outing Post-Transition: Last week, ESPN's Grantland ran an article about trans golf-club inventor Essay Anne Vanderbilt (Dr. V). The lengthy article used her trans identity to sensationalize the story; and, Dr. V committed suicide in the midst of the writer researching the story.
Tonight on The Strong Stance, Melvin Whitehead will join me as we reflect on how we feel about ESPN's handling (or lack of) on the situation. We're also going to talk about outing/disclosure and transphobia.
Yes, the gloves are off, emotions are checked at the door; and, we've got the labels on the table. We're taking The Strong Stance. Are you?
