Near the D-Day Beaches, Simon Brown and Tyrone Trice Waged an Epic Battle

BROWN-TRICE I, A FORGOTTEN TREASURE -- Allied forces landed on the beaches of Normandy on June 6, 1944, setting into motion the beginning of the end of World War II in the European theater.

The Joshua-Klitschko Blockbuster: Birth of a New Era?

The Joshua-Klitschko Blockbuster: Birth of a New Era?

The narrative surrounding Anthony Joshua is the most familiar in all of boxing. Here is a young man caught up in the endless cycle of drugs and gangs that afflicts every major city in the world. A young man who hit the weights so he would continue to command the respect of his peers and who wound up in a boxing gym for similar reasons; a man w...

The Freak Show: Bad Juju for Big George Foreman

The Freak Show: Bad Juju for Big George Foreman

One of the most bizarre events in the history of heavyweight boxing took place 42 years ago this week. On April 26, 1975 in Toronto, George Foreman fought five men in five three round exhibitions that had all the markings of a freak show. This was the first time Foreman fought after having lost to Muhammad Ali in Zaire –a loss he regarded...

Joshua-Klitschko Needs To Be Another Holmes-Norton

JOSHUA VS. KLITSCHKO -- It is axiomatic in boxing that the heavyweight division is the engine that drives the sport, but that has been truer at certain times than at others. When Muhamad Ali, Joe Frazier, George Foreman and a host of only slightly lesser luminaries were at the throttle, their era was a luxuriously appointed bullet train barrel...

Klitschko’s Legacy Probably Rests On Beating Joshua

Klitschko’s Legacy Probably Rests On Beating Joshua

I say he is due all props for taking this fight. That's right. I salute the 41-year-old former unified heavyweight champ Wladimir Klitschko 64-4 (53), for accepting the biggest challenge of his career at such an advanced age for a fighter. In mid-December of last year Klitschko agreed to challenge IBF champ Anthony Joshua 18-0 (18) with the va...

Ringside at the StubHub: Valdez, Ramirez, Magdaleno Triumphant

CARSON, CALIF.-WBO featherweight titlist Oscar Valdez wanted a thriller and Colombia’s Miguel Marriaga helped with 12 rounds of back and forth high level action that saw the champion retain the title by unanimous decision on Saturday. And once again an arena seemed to bring out the best in a world title fight. Valdez (22-0, 19 KOs) wal...

Ruben Olivares and Chucho Castillo Are Forever Linked by Their Great Rivalry

DOWN MEMORY LANE WITH SPECIAL CORRESPONDENT TAMAS PRADARICS -- Rivalries always make boxing more popular. They help the sport borrow the attention of general sport fans who normally do not follow fist-fighting. Rivalries sometimes outlast complete generations of fight fans.
