    [Video] KO of the Year Candidate: Rodriguez vs Wesby

    On Monday night’s on Golden Boy Live card from San Antonio, Javier Rodriguez squared off against perennial opponent Quincy Wesby. Rodriguez was well in control of the bout while Wesby seemed to be biding his time and throwing whatever crossed his mind, much to the chagrin of the ring referee who admonished him a few times and subtracted a point. Perhaps in an attempt to keep himself engaged and obviously thinking highly of his slipping style, Wesby “dared” Rodriguez to test his. This was the result… I bet Quincy won’t do that again. Congratulations gentlemen, you are the first nominee for the 2015 KO of the year award.

As the fight continued over the course of the next few rounds, the momentum began to clearly shift in Castellanos favor. While both fighters continued to exchange, Castellanos began to emerge as the clear leader making good use…

[Video] Jermain Taylor Speaks Post Gun Incident

LITTLE ROCK, AR- IBF middleweight champion turned himself in to law enforcement and pled not guilty to charges that he pointed a gun at a man’s head and threatened to shoot three small children at a Martin Luther King parade in his hometown of Little Rock. Taylor has already been released after posting a $50,000 bond. Prior to turning himself in, Taylor posted the below video where he asks the City (or organizing body) to do better with the Martin Luther King Day parade by furnishing the children candy. I’m not sure what to make of this video so I will simply say, please keep Jermain Taylor in your prayers. ***

Jah Eddie? Eddie Murphy Releases Reggae Song

Homeless Man Takes Dive For Rourke Win

MOSCOW, RUSSIA – Just when you thought the non-sanctioned fight featuring 62 year old Academy Award nominee Mickey Rourke couldn’t get any odder. If you saw the bout,  you are well aware of the ridiculous spectacle it was (if you didn’t, see it, click here). An oddly scripted dance routine punctuated by a Rourke faking chest pains then returning his focus to the fight with a left hook that connected with his opponent’s face. In the end, Rourke was awarded the victory and that’s that. So we thought. According to a report by UK based news source, Daily Mail the man across the ring from Rourke, 29 year old Eliott Seymour, is a homeless man with mental…

[Video] Mickey Rourke Wins By TKO In Moscow

MOSCOW, RUSSIA – This lands in the “Junk Drawer” for several reasons … 1. It’s Mickey Rourke 2. It’s a non-sanctioned fight 3. The oddity of the fight performance.

Fighting on the undercard of Friday’s Ruslan Provodnikov vs. Jose Luis Castillo bout in Moscow, the 62 year (yes 60 years plus 2 more) Academy Award nominee used some, unorthodox tactics to emerge with a victory over 29 year old Elliot Seymour (No relation to Jane). Rourke ultimately prevailed after connecting with body shots that took the fight out of…
