  • Danny Garcia vs Paul Malignaggi Preview, Kovalev-Mohammedi Recap with Mike Baca

    in Sports

    Have you ever been thumbed so badly that you actually didn't get thumbed at all and Sergey Kovalev just knocked you out? That's what happened to Nadjib Mohammedi on HBO last weekend. But Jean Pascal winning a fun, albeit dubious decision over previously unbeaten Cuban Yunieski Gonzalez made up for it in terms of entertainment. That unanimous decision, though...


    The real action, as everyone knows, will be on ESPN this Saturday. In the main event, Danny Garcia faces Paulie Malignaggi in his first official fight at welterweight. Courtesy of Premier Boxing Champions, of course. In the co-feature, Daniel Jacobs squares off against Sergio Mora -- yeah, the guy from The Contender -- for a belt and whatnot.


    There were also fights in London that involved Billy Joe Saunders, Dereck Chisora and Frank Buglioni. Likely far more important was the signing of Gennady Golovkin vs David Lemieux, which might not be what everyone wants, but should be explosive anyway. Don't forget possible Floyd Mayweather vs Andre Berto news, possible Miguel Cotto vs Saul Alvarez news, and more.


    And this week on Top Men Boxing Radio, Mike Baca of UCNlive joins the usual team of James Foley from Bad Left Hook, and The Fight City's Patrick Connor.


    Thanks for tuning in!

    Tim Bradley vs Jessie Vargas Recap with Joel Stern

    in Sports

    What in the boxing? Sometimes we're not sure if these kinds of frenzied, chaos-laden endings to fights that we got in Tim Bradley's win over Jessie Vargas on HBO are part of the frustrations or great things about boxing. Maybe both? Bradley survived a late rally by Vargas that ended with a referee mistake, leading to a prematurely-ended fight. It fed the post-fight discussion, but not in the most positive way. This week on Top Men Boxing Radio, James Foley of Bad Left Hook and The Fight City's Patrick Connor will toss their....however many cents out there, and will be once again joined by UC Davis boxing coach and contributor to The Sweet Science, Joel Stern. As always, join us live or catch us later on iTunes and other services. Thanks for tuning in!
