SORT BY Relevancy
In the much-anticipated main event of the evening, Sergey “Krusher” Kovalev (27-0-1, 24 KOs)* and Jean Pascal (29-3-1, 17 KOs) pleased fans with an action-packed battle. Both fighters started by trading some good shots, but Kovalev started to throw some nasty combinations in the third round to take the wind out of the hostile crowd at the Centre Bell in Montreal. Just before the end of the third round, Kovalev knocked Pascal through the ropes but Pascal was saved by the bell.
There were so many storylines at play in Shawn Porter’s televised co-feature on Spike’s debut of Al Haymon’s “PBC” series. First, his opponent Erick Bone was as late a replacement as it gets, fighting in place for the overweight Roberto Garcia. Bone was scheduled to replace Garcia shortly after the news broke that Garcia would not try to lose the remaining pounds, reports that he was dealing with some sort of illness surfaced soon after. Then, reports about Karim Mayfield taking the late replacement duties surfaced and he was even present at the weigh-in, but the powers that be ultimately decided to go with Bone.
Andre Berto was able to stop Josesito Lopez in the 6th round of their “PBC” on Spike TV main event, live from the Citizens Business Bank Arena in Ontario, California.
Berto stayed in a puncher’s stance early in the 1st round, but Lopez never took the bait. As both fighters circled each other to no prevail and certainly no effect, Lopez tried attacking the body in the closing moments.
Lopez was failing to set his punches up, and even when he tried it seemed not to work, so he only managed to land one shot at a time with any damage. Berto seemed tight and focused. It was as though Berto had some more motivation behind his performance, but it only made him vulnerable.
Al Haymon in recent months has purchased a lot of air time on normal cable stations. Last week he had the premiere of Premiere Boxing Champions with Keith Thurman and Adrien Broner defeating Robert Guerrero and John Molina Jr respectively. This week will be the debut of boxing on Spike TV, live from Ontario, California. There will be a pair of welterweight fights as Andre Berto squares off against Josesito Lopez, and Shawn Porter will step into the ring against Roberto Garcia, both fights being 12 round, non-title bouts. Andre Berto (29-3 with 22 KOs) is trying to avoid losing his 4th fight in his last 6 bouts. He was on the fast track to stardom, making millions per fight at a young age, and had a record of 27-0. Then after having the best fight of 2011 against Victor Ortiz, everything seemed to crumble for the proud Haitian. Berto did bounce back against Jan Zaveck his next bout, but then lost in upsets to both Robert Guerrero and Jesus Soto Karass. After injuring his shoulder against Soto Karass, Berto didn’t step back into the ring for 14 months, which was last September. He had an easy fight and now is stepping the level of competition up in hopes of proving that his career isn’t over. On March 14 Sergey “Krusher” Kovalev (26-0-1, 23 KOs) will compete in his first title defense as Unified WBO, WBA and IBF Light Heavyweight World Champion against former lineal light heavyweight champion Jean Pascal (29-2-1, 17 KOs) in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. Kovalev completed the first half of his preparations in Big Bear Lake, CA then moved to Miami, FL where he is finishing training camp with his trainer, John David Jackson.

How Planned Parenthood Duped America
At a March 1925 international birth control gathering in New York City, a speaker warned of the menace posed by the "black" and "yellow" peril. The man was not a Nazi or Klansman; he was Dr. S. Adolphus Knopf, a member of Margaret Sanger's American Birth Control League (ABCL), which along with other groups eventually became known as Planned Parenthood.
Sanger's other colleagues included avowed and sophisticated racists. One, Lothrop Stoddard, was a Harvard graduate and the author of The Rising Tide of Color against White Supremacy. Stoddard was something of a Nazi enthusiast who described the eugenic practices of the Third Reich as "scientific" and "humanitarian." And Dr. Harry Laughlin, another Sanger associate and board member for her group, spoke of purifying America's human "breeding stock" and purging America's "bad strains." These "strains" included the "shiftless, ignorant, and worthless class of antisocial whites of the South."
Not to be outdone by her followers, Margaret Sanger spoke of sterilizing those she designated as "unfit," a plan she said would be the "salvation of American civilization.: And she also spike of those who were "irresponsible and reckless," among whom she included those " whose religious scruples prevent their exercising control over their numbers." She further contended that "there is no doubt in the minds of all thinking people that the procreation of this group should be stopped." That many Americans of African origin constituted a segment of Sanger considered "unfit" cannot be easily refuted.
This weekend marks the return of the Superman, Adonis Stevenson as he squares off against Dmitry Sukhotsky. With all of the chaos surrounding Stevenson's alleged dodging of Sergey Kovalev, Adonis has much to prove in his second and final fight of 2014.
Former top prospect and current top ten super middleweight Andre Dirrell looks to continue his rise through the 168 pound division as he takes on Derek Edwards. Perhaps the most intriguing fight of the night features the heavy-hitting super prospect Artur Beterbiev as he looks to extend his knockout streak while working towards an inevitable clash with top dogs Adonis Stevenson and fellow countryman Krusher Kovalev who sit atop the mountain of light heavyweight supremacy.
Jay-Z has officially entered the fight game with the announcement of his first production dubbed,"Throne Boxing," on January 9th at Madison Square Garden. The event will be headlined by Washington, D.C. area native and welterweight prospect Dusty Harrison.
All of this and much more on a special preview edition of the Tale of the Tape boxing podcast.

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.
