    Robin Deaken Snaps 52 Fight Loss Streak To Win

    The modern era of boxing is more about the numbers than the opponents. Who cares you fought the guy down the street on two week’s notice, as long as you got that W. With the next opportunity for stardom hanging precariously by an ‘o’ on the fighter’s record, promoters and managers seek non-viable opponents to pad their guy’s record to justify themselves being the next big thing. Of course every fight isn’t going to be a title fight or a war but with current champions and contenders fighting three times a year at most, the sheer numbers of non-quality opponents can be disappointing for the observer. Losses are just a way of life. I can’t think of anyone…

UFC: Anderson Silva Out Of Action

Anderson Silva learned his fate today from the Nevada State Athletic Commission and it wasn’t good. Following both pre- and post-fight drug test failures from UFC 183, Silva has been suspended one year with a retro effective date of January 31 of this year. His unanimous decision win over Nick Diaz has now been ruled a no contest. Silva also was handed a fine of 30% of his reported $600,000 fight purse. In addition he will not receive his $200,000 win bonus from the UFC. So in total $380K is gone out the window. Silva will also have to reimburse the state of Nevada the cost of the test in which he failed. Next year…

[Video] Serena Williams Salutes The Little Mermaid

The seaweed’s always greener in somebody else’s lake…Unless you’re Serena Williams. I’m sure she’s fine with her seaweed. I’m certain she’s pleased with ALL the green in her life. At her recent Delta sponsored karaoke event, the tennis grand mistress belted out the signature song ‘Under the Sea’ from the Disney classic “The Little Mermaid” and she didn’t do too bad a job. Good to see her out there having some fun. No word of Drake on the hook.

[Video] Usain Bolt Gets Tripped By Camera Man Post Win

Moments after another spectacular victory at the World Championships, Bolt took his customary victory lap soaking in the admiration of fans. While the cheers and applause rained down, “the fastest man in the world” had nothing to fear… Except a Camera Man. In what could have resulted in disaster for Bolt, a camera man traveling along side him on a segway lost control and tripped up the champion. It doesn’t appear to be a planned “Nancy Kerrigan” like attack but it does look like a dumb mistake.
