Hey Harold!

By David Martinez / dmboxing.com

I am still saddened that HBO boxing is off the TV air waves. Boxing is my life, and in my daily travels, I have many that ask me questions and give me opinions on the sport. Most recently, many have asked me this: do I miss HBO World Championship Boxing and why?

My easy answer to that is – without hesitation, of course – most definitely I do, as it has been a “main course” for me since its beginning broadcast in 1973. And the one thing that I truly and honestly miss is my friend Harold Lederman and his expert commentary.

Saucedo Stops Zappavigna in Potential Fight and Round of the Year

By David Martinez / dmboxing.com

On Saturday, June 30, 2018 at the Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, Alex Saucedo (28-0 / 18 by KO) stopped Lenny Zappavigna (37-4 / 27 by KO) in a sensational super lightweight fight.

Both boxers were cut in the bout and covered with blood like an old time Rocky movie.

Saucedo dropped Zappavigna in the third round, but Lenny amazingly fought back with a tremendous will to win.

In round four Zappavigna battled back fiercely non stop, with the round certainly a contender for Round of the Year.

Saucedo regained his composure and used his jab effectively to win round five.

A Great Fight … A Great Event

By David Martinez / dmboxing.com 

I have enjoyed boxing for almost 60 years and I always enjoy a good fight.  Recently, I watched the video of a bout that took place a few years ago.  Felix Strum defended his WBA Super World Middleweight Title against Martin Murray.  The fight took place in Mannheim, Germany on December 2, 2011.  The ring announcer was Steve Corbo from Chicago, who did an outstanding job.  Hall of Fame referee Stanley Christodoulou was the third man in the ring. 

This is as fine an exhibition of the sweet science as you will ever see.  The fight was televised throughout the world, but it has never been televised in the USA.  Please Note: due to programming, there is no sound for 67 seconds during the playing of the German National Anthem.

So sit back, relax, and enjoy this video, compliments of dmboxing.com
