Boxing History - Remembering Tommy Morrison

1/9/2019
More
Whether you knew him as "The Duke" or "Hey, yo, Tommy Gunn!" you knew who Tommy Morrison was if you paid attention to boxing in the 1980s or 90s. Morrison was an intriguing and ultimately tragic figure in boxing, and perhaps farther back into his career than many previously though. This week on Knuckles and Gloves Boxing Radio, boxing historian Patrick Connor and author/filmmaker Brin-Jonathan Butler discuss the life and career of Morrison, who died in 2013.

12/27/2018

Not much in boxing gets fans and pundits excited like a great heavyweight fight. As it happens, Riddick Bowe and Evander Holyfield had three great fights between them. From round 10 of the first bout, to Fan Man, heart issues, Rock Newman... This trilogy had it all.

Well, at least a portion of Deontay Wilder's draw with Tyson Fury was the fight we had all wanted. Those parts were exciting, riveting, and they had us simply wanting more. The rest was on the slow side, but we knew that could be a possibilty. This week on Knuckles and Gloves Boxing Radio, boxing historian Patrick Connor and author/filmmaker Brin-Jonathan Butler team up to recap the action, talk about each fighter's future, what it means for the heavyweight division, and more.

It's been a little while since our last history episode. We apologize. But we're back with another to make up for it! This week on Knuckles and Gloves Boxing Radio, boxing historian Patrick Connor teams up with CompuBox operator and fellow fight historian Aris Pina to remember some of the greatest boxer vs. puncher matchups in the history of the heavyweight division. Since this weekend features a Showtime Pay-Per-View between Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury, the theme fits. Since we're in the...

Deontay Wilder vs Tyson Fury Preview

11/28/2018

Deontay Wilder vs Tyson Fury might not be the heavyweight fight boxing wants, but perhaps it's the heavyweight fight boxing deserves. We're not sure how that whole analogy goes, so that might not be right either. But we do know Wilder-Fury is the fight we're getting. And it's this weekend. So this week on Knuckles and Gloves Boxing Radio, author and filmmaker Brin-Jonathan Butler joined boxing historian Patrick Connor to talk about the time he spent in Wilder's camp. But there's also...

10/17/2018
More
Not only did Terence Crawford dominate and stop Jose Benavidez last weekend, but over 2 million people tuned in to watch it on ESPN. Paired with recent news that Saul "Canelo" Alvarez signed to fight on DAZN, this sounds like great news for the sport of boxing and it's immediate future. This week on Knuckles and Gloves Boxing Radio, author and filmmaker Brin-Jonathan Butler joined boxing historian Patrick Connor in discussing Crawford-Benavidez, DAZN, the Canelo signing, Deontay Wilder vs...

Boxing History - HBO Boxing Tribute

10/12/2018

Many people in boxing circles had speculated for months, if not years, that HBO would be tapering down its boxing programming to zero at some point. After the recent announcement that HBO would no longer be consistently invested in boxing, those people were more or less proven correct. This week on Knuckles and Gloves Boxing Radio, CompuBox operater Aris Pina joins fellow fight history fanatic Patrick Connor in remembering some of HBO Boxing's greatest -- and worst -- moments. From HBO...

Anthony Joshua vs Alexander Povetkin Recap

9/23/2018
More
Anthony Joshua is probably the best heavyweight in the world. Probably. And his stoppage victory over Alexander Povetkin went a long way in backing that suggestion up. After several rounds of a difficult fight, Joshua finally came through with a combination that stole Povetkin's legs and handed him his first stoppage loss. It remains to be seen what comes of Deontay Wilder's showdown with Tyson Fury, but the winner should be turned toward Joshua to determine supremacy. This week on Knuckles...

Saul Canelo Alvarez vs Gennady Golovkin II Recap

9/16/2018
More
It is done. Saul "Canelo" Alvarez vs Gennady "GGG" Golovkin is finished and there's plenty of fresh controversy to talk about. It just wouldn't be boxing if there weren't. Following another entertaining clash between Alvarez and Golovkin, many appear to believe the latter deserved to win the close decision that was afforded Canelo. But it has to be conceded that this was another close bout with many tough, contentious rounds. In this episode of Knuckles and Gloves Boxing Radio, boxing...

Deontay Wilder vs Tyson Fury Announcement, Frampton-Jackson Recap

8/22/2018
More
Tyson Fury is more or less back. Perhaps less, but we'll just have to see. Fury dominated Francesco Pianeta en route to a 10 round points decision last weekend, but the much bigger news is that a fight with American title-holder Deontay Wilder is official. It's a big heavyweight fight, and at worst intriguing. In the main event, Carl Frampton stopped Luke Jackson in nine rounds amid a great atmosphere.

Special Guests Steve "2 Pound" Forbes and Christina Lunzman

8/12/2018
More
There has only been one boxing card in Portland, Oregon in the last 12 years. This past December, former super featherweight champion Steve Forbes and co-promoter Christina Lunzman organized a five-fight card under their promotional banner, 2 Pound Sports & Entertainment. Headlined by Tacoma, Washington-based cruiserweight prospect Marquice Weston, the event proved that boxing was welcome in the Rose City. It's been a few months, but on August 25th, 2 Pound Sports & Entertainment returns to...

Boxing History - Invincible Fighters Who Got Destroyed

8/10/2018
More
Throughout boxing history, the sport has earned its reputation as a cruel endeavor. Its tendency to break men down and constantly remind everyone that nobody is invincible is rough, and legendary. This week on a boxing history episode of Knuckles and Gloves Boxing Radio, boxing historian Patrick Connor and Compubox operator Aris Pina team up to recall fighters from history who were thought to be unbeatable and were eventually torn to shreds. From Mike Tyson to Jimmy Wilde, to Roberto Duran...

Eleider Alvarez vs Sergey Kovalev Recap, Wilder-Fury Negotiations

8/8/2018
More
In only two years, Sergey Kovalev went from the guy who deserved the decision against one of the world's best fighters in Andre Ward, to a poor sap who never had it. Thanks, Eleider Alvarez. The truth is probably somewhere in the crevices. That's if you need a microscope or a soothsaying device to read beyond "Sergey Kovalev was doing great until he was hit with a well-timed, powerful right hand." By stopping Kovalev without controversy, Eleider Alvarez entered the light heavyweight fray...

Boxing History - Champions With Fewest Fights

7/27/2018

While figuring out how much to value title belts isn't an easy task anymore, for now they're what we have to track the lineage of champions. Regardless, what Oleksandr Usyk has been able to accomplish in a short amount of time is quite significant, and especially considering his current division. This week on the history edition of Knuckles and Gloves Boxing Radio, boxing historian Patrick Connor and Compubox operator Aris Pina remember the fighters who found their way to a world title in...

Usyk-Gassiev Recap, Garcia-Easter & Parker-Whyte Previews

7/25/2018
More
It's a fact: we love tournaments. The World Boxing Super Series, while still flawed in a few ways, has for the most part brought a heap of good pairings and action. The cruiserweight final between Oleksandr Usyk and Murat Gassiev may not have been as explosive as most of us hoped, but it was still high quality stuff, and crowned an emperor in the division. Where does Usyk go now? How could he do at heavyweight? Would it be worth it to attempt to rule cruiserweight for a spell? Also, there's...

Boxing History - Skipped Heavyweight Fights

7/20/2018
More
Boxing is a sport of timing, without question. Sometimes apart from the timing shown by one fighter against another in the ring, boxing is also about career timing and trajectory. As boxing's glamor division, heavyweight has consistently drawn in more eyes and ears than the others. Even so, making heavyweight fights at the right time -- and sometimes making them at all -- proves to be too difficult. From John L. Sullivan vs Peter Jackson to Lennox Lewis vs Riddick Bowe II, historians Aris...

Pacquiao vs Matthysse Recap, Usyk vs Gassiev Preview

MANNY PACQUIAO IS BACK!!!!!!1111! ...that's the refrain, friends. Memorize it before all hope is ripped from us when a Floyd Mayweather vs Pacquiao rematch is made. In trouncing a passive and seemingly just plain worn-out Lucas Matthysse, the esteemed Senator Pacquiao was able to tab his first stoppage win in almost nine years. What it means considering the shape of his opponent is tough to say, but it will inevitably keep Manny going a while. But this weekend, Oleksandr Usyk and Murat...
