SORT BY Relevancy
Aside from what was a very fortunate kind of fluke this last week on NBC Sports, 2014 just hasn't panned out very well thus far. A quarter of the way through the calendar year, and we now finally have a significant fight that, on paper, should be competitive and potentially exciting. 2013 turned us into boxing brats, never mind the decades of great scrapping before that. But here we are, staring Tim Bradley vs. Manny Pacquiao II right in the eyes. The rest of the, ahem...Pay Per View card is barely worth mentioning, which sucks. But joining James Foley of Bad Left Hook and Queensberry Rules' Patrick Connor this week is BLH founder and editor Scott Christ. Thanks for tuning in!
Tonight we will discuss the Manny Pacquiao - Tim Bradley fight as it happens and into the post fight reflection.
This bout seems to have gone from having a mild interest from the hardcore fans into one that is recognized as being a crossroads match for both fighters depending who is victorious in the outcome.
For Tim Bradley, this fight means redemption after winning his first meeting on paper with Pacquiao in the ring with the general feeling that he was gifted by the judges in their scoring.
Although his stock as a fighter has risen after defeating Juan Manuel Marquez - the fighter who knocked Manny Pacquiao out cold in devastating fashion - and his thrilling toe to toe battle with Ruslan Provodnikov, this is a chance to finally quell the whispers that question his standing as a fighter who belongs in the upper echelon of the welterweight division.
For Manny Pacquiao, to win this fight is the only option for him if he is to continue on to bigger and better things which means one day having a shot against Floyd "Money" Mayweather.
To avenge his so called loss against Timothy Bradley keeps him in contention as the process to erase the stigma of his devastating knockout loss to Juan Manuel Marquez continues. He now has no choice but to win as a loss to Bradley would be career suicide.
With these compelling factors hanging in the air on fight night as well as the growing list of worthy young and hungry contenders looming over both the heads of these fine combatants, this fight will definitely have an effect on the direction of where the division will go and the subsequent fights that will take place as the entire group reach for the chance at Floyd Mayweather's crown and the huge payday that is sure to come with it.
Bring your opinions, viewpoints and trash talk to the show because it will be a hangout that will almost rival being at ringside itself!
See you there!

The best part about the end of 2013 for boxing, thus far, is that this weekend's Manny Pacquiao vs. Brandon Rios bout from Macau, China may not even be the most anticipated. It probably has the single biggest star from now until 2014, but the sport of boxing will be throwing some serious heat at us for the rest of the year -- and in combination.

Another huge casino, another hide-tanning -- another trip to Macau for boxing. Many questions remained regarding Manny Pacquiao following his brutish KO loss to Juan Manuel Marquez almost a year ago, and some were answered on Saturday night. Yes, he's still a world class fighter; yes, he can still swell up an eye better than an on-site bee sting; and yes, his compadre Buboy is still a well-built machine, muscular to the bone. This week on Queensberry Rules Radio, Bad Left Hook's James F

Hernandez was born in Tijuana Mexico and came to the US at four and didn't start acting until about thirteen years ago." I was floundering about and by floundering I mean a total wreck, then one day a friend took me to an acting class and it saved my life. Two years ago I donated a kidney to my dad and while in recovery my body went into shock and I flat lined, yup I was dead, I came back too right before the doctor zapped me with the defibrillator, so there's that. I've never had any film school and learned on the fly. Taught myself to edit, write and direct. I'm in post on a feature PURE LOVE that I wrote, directed and acted in (with Charlene Amoia) I'm acting in another film THE VANISHED that I'm also producing, should finish production by end of May. In the meantime I'm also producing two shorts that I'm also acting in. One just wrapped the other will be wrapped in two weeks.
