R.I.P. Bert Sugar

By David Martinez
The boxing world lost a legendary historian and writer this past Sunday 다운로드. Bert Randolph Sugar passed away in Chappaqua, New York from cardiac arrest, after a long battle with lung cancer.  He was 74 years old.
My conversations with Bert started many years ago as we both knew another boxing historian, the late Al Nelson 다운로드. Bert was an expert in boxing and his favorite topic was the golden age of the sport. His top 10 fighters of all time (in order) were Sugar Ray Robinson, Henry Armstrong, Harry Greb, Jack Dempsey, Benny Leonard, Joe Louis, Mickey Walker, Sam Langford, Tony Canzoneri, and Muhammad Ali 다운로드.
Bert was best known for being editor and publisher of Boxing Illustrated (1969-1973, 1988) and Ring magazine (1979-1983) 다운로드. He wrote more than eighty books and saw every major fight in the past 65 years. He was a colorful man and was ever present with his fedora and cigar java 대용량 excel.
Bert was inducted into the World Boxing hall of Fame in 1989 and the International Boxing Hall of Fame in 2005 웹 하드 폴더 다운로드.
He will be missed.  May his soul rest in peace with the Lord.

Thoughts on Khan and Fury

By Tom Donelson

Member of Boxing Writers Association & International Boxing Research Organization )


Zab Judah found himself with one more opportunity to win a big fight, this one from Amir Khan and become an elite fighter once again.  At the age of 33, Judah moved down in weight to the 140 pound division but Khan would be a big fight 시크릿 가든 대본 다운로드. As for Khan, he came into the fight as the younger and bigger fighter against an older but experienced boxer who has his share of big fights.  This fight happened because Tim Bradley chose not to fight Khan and Khan simply moved to the next best thing; Judah 다운로드.


Khan began the first round by jabbing and looking for openings whereas Judah showed patience as Khan early jabs missed.  Khan long jab kept Judah a safe distance and where Judah did managed a right hook from his southpaw stance; he did very little offensively 다운로드.


In the second round, Judah avoided many of Khan punches, but he did very little counter whereas Khan continued to control the real estate between his opponent.   By the third round, Khan physical feature started to take control but Judah managed to slip left hands but they had little effect on the bigger Khan 다운로드.

Last month the boxing world lost a friend, Maurice “Dub” Harris, who passed away peacefully on June 27, 2011 at the age of 94 다운로드. He was a highly decorated veteran of the United States Army serving in both World War II and the Korean War. Dub, along with Everett Sanders (original founder), Charlie Casas, and Gordon Del Faro, was one of the charter members of the World Boxing Hall of Fame that started in 1980 다운로드. Dub served five terms as president (1982), (1985), (1989-1990), (1995-1996), (1997-1998). Dub remained active as Chairman of the Board and President’s Advisor until failing health in 2005 forced him to depart the World Boxing Hall of Fame after twenty five years of dedicated service with the goal to always strive for excellence 다운로드. I officially met Dub in November 1996 when Deborah Sutherland set up an appointment to have him interview me to become a member of the World Boxing Hall of Fame 울버린 다운로드. I was not shy about telling him about how I wanted to serve and offer my boxing expertise to the organization. He was delighted with my interview and I was always remember what he told me, “Don’t let me down,” which became the motivating sprit that he sincerely embedded in me and lit the torch I burned for the next ten years I served the World Boxing Hall of Fame windows 10 enterprise. We often kidded about “Don’t let me down” between us, in which he would always look at me with that smile he had for the chosen ones whom he considered on his team 포인터 포커스 다운로드.

By David Martinez / Boxing HistorianFour years ago, July 15, 2007, I brought you this website in living color 인터넷 라디오 다운로드. The initial brain storming of this website I owe to John Boitnott, who approached me in early 2007 and simply told me, “Why not,” that I have all the ingredients to bring the world my love and passion of boxing 달력 위젯 다운로드. He also said that he would be honored to help me by being my producer. So, a dream became a reality and  dmboxing.com  was born.

In Rusty’s Corner ~ Klitschko v. Haye

Rusty Rubin is a veteran boxing writer

This week on July 2, in Hamburg, Germany, Wladimir Klitschko puts his IBF and WBO belts up against fast and hard hitting David Haye and his WBA belt 다운로드.

Klitschko is taller by 3 1/2” and has a 3” longer reach, but Haye does have power, although he doesn’t show much one-punch ability to take his opponent out 다운로드. At 35, he’s also five years older than Haye and has fought better name fighters.

The question with Klitschko in the past has been his chin, which seems to have held up well in recent fights 들국화 1집 다운로드. Being knocked out does not equate to having a glass jaw.

As I see it, Haye has to wear Wladimir down in order to have a decent shot to win, and unless his legs betray him, I don’t see that happening 어벤져스 자막 다운로드.

Klitschko by decision or late stoppage.

Glove 2 Glove:

One of the founders of the World Boxing Hall of Fame passed away cython 다운로드. Dub Harris, also an honored veteran of WWII left us on June 21. Thanks Dub, you were one of the great guys I was privileged to meet and get to know.

First, a continuing wish a speedy and full recovery to Oscar de la Hoya and Mia St 다운로드. John who are both undergoing rehab treatment.


This week on June 25, in Cozumel, Mexico, Tijuana native and veteran Humberto Soto takes on Motoki Sasaki, from Japan, for the WBC lightweight title 다운로드.


Also this week on June 25, I wish my friend and boxing historian David Martinez “Happy Birthday”.

The Fight:


Soto, 31, 55-7-2, seems to have been around forever, but is still four years younger than the largely unheralded Sasaki, who rarely fights outside of Japan 패션오브 크라이스트 다운로드.


On the surface it seems like a fight that Soto should dominate, as he has fought far bigger names than Sasaki. There is a however, here 다운로드. Sasaki has fought mainly Japanese fighters, and there aren’t a lot of folks here who know their names, let alone their toughness.


Still, I can’t go against the younger and more experienced Soto, especially since the fight is in Mexico 이클립스 테마 다운로드.


Humberto by TKO early, in what looks like a short, but action packed bout.


Glove 2 Glove


On a personal note, I would request prayers for my wonderful wife Lois, who is dealing with a still unclearly diagnosed condition 다운로드.


Prayers are requested for the health of outstanding trainer Joe Sousa, who is fighting the fight of his life against cancer.


Prayers for the complete return to good health to my old friend, promoter, and ex-wrestler Jack ‘Moe’ Smith who had complete reconstructive knee surgery a couple of weeks back 다운로드. Moe’s a fighter and making a complete recovery.


Please pray for my Aussie mates and Glove2Glove member John MacDougall, who had to deal with health problems for his wife of many years Gwen, who is in a nursing home John, a former Commissioner is having problems after a hip replacement surgery 손오공 다운로드. Both need your prayers for recovery and inner strength.


Please say prayers for Phill Grazide of Santa Rosa, CA. a big supporter of amateur boxing, who is suffering the crippling effects of rheumatoid arthritis 다운로드.

Alvarez wins easily!

By Tom Donelson

( Member Boxing Writers Association and International Boxing Research Organization )

This past Saturday, HBO boxing after Dark had an evening of knock out boxing as the card featured knock out artists in both bouts.  Adrien Broner came into the bout as an undefeated fighter with 16 knockouts in 20 wins against the tough Jason Litzau, who goes for broke.  In the second bout, Mexican sensation Camelo Saul Alvarez challenged British veteran Ryan Rhodes 다운로드.

In the opening round of the first fight, Litzau and Broner posed more than fight as they felt each other out with little action until the last thirty seconds when Broner attacked with vicious combinations.  The Broner attacked began with a left hook that missed followed by a right that stunned Litzau.  The right hand paralyzed Litzau for a brief moment and Litzau did not quite know where he was; Broner added a solid right, left hook, a right upper cut that send Litzau eyes rolling back and then concluded with a left hook sending Litzau down along the rope.  The referee did not bother to count as it was self evident that Litzau was not going to get up 가정부 미타.

In the main event, Rhodes and Alvarez exchanged a few polite punches before Alvarez exploded with some combinations near the end of the first round as he connected on a series of combinations with the right hand showing the most pop 다운로드.  Alvarez showed patience in the second round as he waited to see what Rhodes, who jabbed tentatively as the memory of those stinging rights in the first round still fresh in his minds.  When Rhodes turned southpaw, he proved vulnerable to Alvarez’s right as Rhodes looked ineffectual 성경 찬송 무료 다운로드.

Alvarez showed some defensive skills as he moved his head against Rhodes and avoided many of Rhodes’ punches.  Alvarez occasionally would attack and never feared his opponents’ power 다운로드. Rhodes started to connect on a few punches in the third round but they had little effect.

Floyd Mayweather Jr. is planning a return to the ring in September against quick, but somewhat feint-hearted Victor Ortiz 다운로드. It’s a good tune-up for a match with Manny Pacquiao later in the year, or perhaps he’s looking for another easy day at the office. In any event, this fight shouldn’t prove too difficult for Mayweather.***


Now, another thought that has crossed my little-used brain (in recent times) fifa online 3. How about a real reality show for our over-the hill fighters who refuse to realize when the game is done?


Here’s what I propose 다운로드. A box-off tournament where the losers has to retire and only one of the fighters involved can remain active (or what passes in today’s boxing for ‘active’ 다운로드.


For example Roy Jones Jr. fights Evander Holyfield with the loser retiring and the winner going on to fight the winner of Bernard Hopkins vs 스냅샵 다운로드. Oliver McCall. It need not be confined to just four over-the hill pugilists. You can throw in your own names wherever you like.


While I hate reality shows, this is one concept I would gladly support 다운로드. Because getting rid of some one-time great fighters who are now little more than just an embarrassment to our sport has to be a good thing, for both the fans and the fighters 추억 의 오락실 게임 다운로드.


For the record, I think Hopkins easily continues to fight on.
