    Vyacheslav Shabranskyy survives near catastrophe; stops Paul Parker in 3

    Photos by Darryl Cobb Philadelphia, PA (June 30, 2015) – Tuesday Night Fights returned to 2300 Arena with a bang as light heavyweight prospect Vyacheslav Shabranskyy (13-0, 11 KOs) narrowly survived 2 knockdowns in the first round before overwhelming Paul Parker (7-0, 4 KOs) to secure a 3rd round technical knockout. Parker landed 2 big lead right hands that dropped Shabranskyy each time. However, Shabranskyy was able to recover between rounds 1 and 2 and Parker no longer brought the same fire power. By round 3 Parker was in survival mode and he eventually quit with 24 seconds to go. In other televised bouts, aired by Fox Sports 2 / Fox Deportes, Damon Allen (6-0,…

    Controversy Once Again Follows Bradley In Decision Win

    CARSON, CALIF – HBO Boxing provided a rather interesting doubleheader on Saturday night that included one of Mexico’s hottest young prospects continuing his undefeated run and the successful return of Timothy “Desert Storm” Bradley (32-1-1, 12 KO’s). Saturday, HBO also celebrated their 1,000th and 1,001 televised fights with their card in front of an electrifying crowd of over 4,500 in the notorious StubHub Center. Controversy seems to be Tim Bradley’s biggest fan and tends to follow him throughout his career. So things seem rather normal for Bradley’s sake that the fight for eleven rounds was able to run its course without a hitch. However, a controversy-free fight is nearly impossible when Bradley is involved and…

UFC: Jose Aldo Out Of UFC 189

It’s all over before it started, after weeks of hype and tons of money spent on promotions. Tuesday night the official word came down for UFC 189. Featherweight champ Jose Aldo has officially pulled out of the main event at next weekend’s UFC 189. Aldo was force out of his title defense against Conor McGregor due to a rib injury. With him off the card, Chad Mendes will step in and face McGregor for an interim title. UFC President Dana White took to ESPN to break the news. “Andre Pederneiras, his coach, called and basically said that Aldo’s rib is too painful, and he will not be fighting,” White said on the show. “So Chad…


Yoel Romero Wins Fight, Loses Crowd With Anti-Gay Comments

Sometimes it is better not to say anything at all. Today this is something one Yoel Romero is learning first hand. At UFC Fight Night in Hollywood. FL, Romero was in the main event against former light-heavyweight champ Lyoto Machida. Many thought Romero would have an edge since Machida was coming off a nasty submission loss in April to Luke Rockhold and required surgery on his left hand. In addition, competing in a smaller cage could prove advantageous with Romero’s wrestling background. For the first two rounds Romero used his striking to keep Machida back pedaling and off rhythm. He finally utilized his wrestling the third round and got Machida down. From there a clearly…

Bellator 139 Results: Cheick Kongo def. Alexander Volkov

Mulvane, Kan. (June 26, 2015) – Cheick Kongo (23-10-2) utilized a vast array of elbow strikes to defeat Alexander Volkov (24-6) via unanimous decision in the main event of Bellator MMA: “Kongo vs. Volkov” from Kansas Star Arena in Mulvane, Kan., on Friday. The Frenchman was relentless with his takedown attempts and “Drago” was unable to use his length to ward them off, spending a good duration of the heavyweight encounter on his back. With the victory, Kongo improves to 4-2 under the Bellator MMA umbrella, while Volkov has now dropped two consecutive decisions. In the co-main event, Dave Rickels (16-3, 1 NC) was seemingly en route to a spectacular stoppage of John Alessio (35-17, 1 NC) but an ill-advised knee to the head…

[Video/Explicit] Rihanna “Bitch Better Have My Money”

Yes, I know I’ve said the only “Bitch Better Have My Money” I recognize is the old school one by rapper AMG but I’ll admit I catch myself singing along with Rihanna’s version. Well the Navy (and the lurkers) finally got what they wanted. The long awaited video of the the Bajan’s beauty’s hit song is on the airwaves and it’s a serious sight to behold. Teased during the recent BET awards, the video (released in edited and explicit versions) features tales of money, murder and kidnapping. Shocking but brilliantly shot it’s highly entertaining and completely not safe for work or your kids. (good grief, what was the budget for this video? It is incredible.)


RIP: Dusty “The American Dream” Rhodes 1945 – 2015

via Associated Press Professional wrestling icon Dusty Rhodes, known as “The American Dream,” died Thursday, the WWE announced. He was 69. Rhodes, whose real name was Virgil Riley Runnels Jr., made his professional wrestling debut in 1968 as a tag-team partner on the Texas Outlaws with Dick Murdoch.

Trailer: DOPE Movie (Look For the HoodRunner Routes)

INGLEWOOD, CA — If you follow me in social media (@jethang on twitter or @jeandra_leBeauf on IG) you’ve probably seen me mention a time or two that Inglewood, CA is my hood. You may have also encountered my running site and growing movement (focused on logging your exercises miles in your urban landscape) #HoodRunner ( still under construction, click here and buy a unisex tank, shame less plug).  I mention HoodRunner (other than the self-promotion) because of the new movie, Dope. Directed by Rick Famuyiwa, the film is partially inspired by his adolescent years in the bottoms of the City of Inglewood.(By bottoms I expect he means behind Costco by Morningside High School. Notable graduate, Byron Scott). Famuyiwa…


Caitlyn Jenner Emerges, Bruce Jenner Is No More

LOS ANGELES — After months of speculation, the now former Bruce Jenner made her appearance to the world as Caitlyn Jenner.  Photographed by Annie Leibovitz for Vanity Fair, Jenner appeared for the first time in mass media as her newly “freed” self. In addition to the photos, Vanity Fair will publish a 22-page spread penned by Pulitzer Prize winning writer Buzz Bissinger that the two day photo shoot was like winning the gold medal in the 1976 Olympics. “That was a good day, but the last couple of days were better. . . . This shoot was about my life and who I am as a person. It’s not about the fanfare, it’s not about people cheering…


Suge Update: No Mayweather Bail/Snoop: “No Ill Will”

LOS ANGELES, CA — Just prior to the Mayweather vs Pacquiao super fight, a story circulating around the internet that Mayweather would pay bail for former rap boss/career criminal Marion “Suge” Knight. [In case you missed it, Knight is currently locked up in L.A. on murder charges — and his attorney Matthew Fletcher reportedly said Knight was counting on Floyd to cover his bail. Welp, Mayweather won the fight and Suge is still in jail. I guess the friendship is not as tight at they thought it was.] While the rest of the world is waiting for Knight’s conviction like town villagers with torches chasing an ogre, at least one person in the world feels bad…


[Video] Jay-Z B-Sides Concert (Full Video)

NON-Tidal Land – Unfortunately I am not a TIDAL subscriber. Sorry Jay and Bey, I just can’t afford to be down with the wave right now. I am but a humble blogger trying to make a dollar out of fifteen cents (a dime and a nickel). Recently Jay-Z blessed the good folks with a B-sides concert. Alas us non-subscribers got left out in the cold. But to hear tastemakers tell it, a lot of you aren’t either so let us commiserate our non-Tidal subscriber woes together. For those of you, like me, who couldn’t watch the Jay-Z B-sides concert, here it is in it’s entirety.


[Video] Joseline f/ Stevie J “Stingy w/ My Kutty Kat’

Love and Hip Hop Atlanta fanatics !!! Have you been desperately waiting to see Joseline’s music video? Or at least curious? I know I am. The oversexed, over accented, under clothed Puerto Rican Princess is finally gracing us with the video for the song “Stingy With My Kutty Kat” (the song she was “performing” on last week’s episode.) At any rate, it’s what’s to be expected. Gratuitous body shots with titty tape and lace, thick stallion like dancers and Steebie sangin’ on the hook clad in leather and studs. Real spit, I may add this to my workout mix, her body IS banging. Enjoy.


Preview: ‘Amy’ The Amy Winehouse Documentary

The family of the late Amy Winehouse are not pleased with the release of an upcoming documentary called Amy but that is not stopping the project from going forward.   Check out a sneak peak right here. Courtesy of Rolling Stone: The clip, we see footage of Winehouse fooling around with a video camera (“I look like a floating head, I’ve got no hair, I’m just on a black screen”) while her former manager Nick Schmansky talks about recording the singer’s first demos. For those early tracks, Winehouse converted some of her poems into song lyrics, which we see handwritten by the singer on yellow lined paper with hearts drawn in the margins. “When I’m…

[Video] Eddie Murphy Release New “OH JAH JAH” Video

LOS ANGELES —  I can’t front, I’m feeling Eddie Murphy’s reggae music. I still fully expect him to turn to the camera and give us his signature, big toothy smile to let us know he’s clowning but even if he did, the music is still good. About a month or so ago, we posted his new single “Oh Jah Jah” released by VPAL music. Well the man of many voices is releasing a new video for the single. Watch it below. ***** Eddie Murphy unleashes the brand new video for his reggae single “Oh Jah Jah,” released by VPAL Music (VP Records’ subsidiary label and distribution arm). The critically-acclaimed track, which Huffington Post claims “will…


Leave Mike Tyson Alone!!!

LAS VEGAS — Why do people insist on antagonizing Mike Tyson? If you are sub-80 years old, specifically in the United States, chances are you are quite familiar with Mike Tyson, his legacy and his temper. At today’s Mayweather vs Pacquiao weigh-in, an aggressive fan figured he’d just jump in with the champ and take a picture. Problem is, he should have asked first. Lucky for him, the former heavyweight champ was in a chill mood because he only got an elbow for his trouble. Old school Mike Tyson would have dropped him with a two-piece. Not lip-synching followed the elbowing.
