A star-studded weekend of boxing delivered little in the way of actual oomph, unfortunately. There weren't many thrills or spills, but plenty of chills. But did you expect us to say anything different anyway? From ESPN's "Night of Champions" that featured Antonio Tarver and Austin Trout, to a ho-hum ShoBox between Erislandy Lara and Ishe Smith, to a mediocre Showtime card (surprised?) headlined by Amir Khan vs Devon Alexander dueling with a good-but-depressing HBO card across the street, topped by Tim Bradley vs Diego Chaves, we got it all, baby. James Foley of Bad Left Hook and The Queensberry Rules' Patrick Connor will help you relive every fight, no prisoners taken. Thanks for tuning in!

The Tale of the Tape returns after a busy weekend in Vegas with post-fight boxing banter and plenty of insight and analysis.
To start things off the guys head to the Chelsea Theatre at the Cosmopolitan to discuss the controversial decision between welterweight star Timothy Bradley and the rugged Argentine Diego Chaves. In under card action, the Irishman Andy Lee shocked the world for the second time this year with a devastating 5th round knockout of heavy favorite Matt Korobov. And Mauricio Herrera was robbed again, this time at the hands of the protected prospect, Jose Benavidez.
On the other side of town at the MGM Grand Casino, former world champion Amir Khan faced off against Devon Alexander for a possible shot at Floyd Mayweather. In other action, 'One Time' Keith Thurman returned from injury to face undefeated Italian champion Leonard Bundu. The Charlo Brothers were back in action and Viktor Ortiz and Abner Mares had something to prove.
The guys also discuss the return of the American Dream, Erislandy Lara in a title defense against TMT journeyman Ishe Smith.
All of this and much more on an action packed post-fight edition of the Tale of the Tape boxing podcast.

Devon Alexander vs Amir Khan Post Fight
Amir Khan won a convincing 12-round unanimous decision victory over Devon Alexander in a matchup of two of the fastest welterweights in the world on Saturday in the main event of SHOWTIME CHAMPIONSHIP BOXING® from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
The impressive victory was nearly a shutout, with Khan winning 119-109, 118-110 and 120-108 to remain undefeated at 147 pounds and extend his winning streak against southpaws to seven.Tim Bradley Jr. returned to the ring tonight and took on rugged Argentine Diego Chaves at the Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas.
A night of controversy continued in the main event as the judges scored the fight 116-112 Chaves, 115-113 Bradley, and 114-114 a split draw. The idea that anyone could give 8 rounds to Chaves is ludicrous especially coming from Julie Lederman one of the best judges in the sport in my opinion.
Bradley looked tremendous to start the fight very sharp with crisp punches. His legs looked great and his defense was on point. He landed flush shots on Chaves, boxing very effectively through the first 3 rounds. Chaves had moments of effectiveness during exchanges.

Happy holidays to everyone out there and boxing is giving its gift this weekend with a pair of events televised on HBO and Showtime that will surely have boxing fans happy for the upcoming holidays. For this article I’ll be going over the Golden Boy Card that involves such names as Keith Thurman, Abner Mares, Victor Ortiz, and both Charlo brothers that will be headlined by Amir “King” Khan squaring off against Devon Alexander “The Great.”
Amir Khan (29-3 with 19 KOs) is a fast-handed boxer who is born and very well followed in the UK. He has fought and defeated fighters such as Marco Antonio Barea, Paulie Malignaggi, Chino Maidana, and Zab Judah. However, everything hasn’t been prefect for Khan, sustaining losses from Lamont Peterson, Danny Garcia, and of course his 1st career loss, a 1st round KO to Breidis Prescott in the UK 6 years ago.
Devon Alexander (26-2 with 14 KOs) also has a pretty darn good resume. He’s defeated fighters such as Junior Witter, Juan Urango, Randall Bailey, a controversial win against Lucas Matthysee, and he also holds wins over Andriy Kotelnik and Chino Maidana. His losses have come to the likes of Timothy Bradley and Shawn Porter. He’s more of a technical fighter with not much power, but he also is a southpaw, which could complicate the rhythm of this fight.
Timothy Bradley (31-1, 12 KOs) is one of the most determined fighters in the sport of boxing. He has shown the ability to go toe to toe with the very dangerous Ruslan Provodkinov, and outbox the very crafty Juan Manuel Marquez. Coming off a loss against Manny Pacquiao he wants to rebound with a victory against the very underrated and dangerous Diego Chaves (23-2, 19 KOs).
Chaves is a typical power punching aggressive fighter from Argentina with good boxing skills. Both fighters are looking to make a statement this Saturday night in the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas.
On the latest episode of the Tale of the Tape the guys preview a busy weekend in the world of boxing headlined by the return of 'The Desert Storm' Timothy Bradley to HBO as he squares of with rugged Argentine slugger Diego Chaves. In a loaded undercard, Matt Korobov goes head-to-head with the 'Irishman' Andy Lee for the WBO middleweight championship of the world and Jose Benavidez looks to make his mark on the 140 pound division as he challenges the crafty veteran Maricio Herrera for the interim WBA junior welterweight title.
On the same evening, in the same town, Showtime presents the the fight night dubbed 'Royal Battle' as British boxing star Amir Khan returns to the ring against Devon Alexander in a welterweight bout. And in a battle of undefeated fighters, knockout artist Keith Thurman takes on Italian fighter Leonard Bundu for Thurman's interim WBA welterweight belt.
Erislandy Lara returns against Ishe Smith in a junior middleweight contest.
All of this and much, much more on a very special and action packed preview edition of the Tale of the Tape!

The entire fight card will be televised on both Showtime Extreme and Showtime Championship Boxing with a start time 7PM ET.
Hear what Coach Ronnie thinks of the talent enriched Showtime events!!
Even killjoys like the two hosts of Queensberry Rules Radio are willing to admit it when fight cards are reasonably entertaining. Maybe not without some tears or whimpering, but it's not totally unheard of, anyway. Between a solid HBO card this past weekend and the dueling HBO and Showtime cards this coming weekend, there was bound to be a good fight or two. So let's hope the quota didn't already get filled. This week on TQBR Radio, James Foley of Bad Left Hook and The Queensberry Rules' Patrick Connor do it all. From David Lemieux's stoppage of Gabe Rosado (and accompanying undercard), to Amir Khan vs Devon Alexander (and undercard) and Tim Bradley vs Diego Chaves (and undercard), there may be some forced optimism. Thanks for tuning in!
