Doing What You Are Supposed To Do,
It’s Not That Impressive
 
By William Trillo
My initial reaction to the announcement the Deontay Wilder would be defending his title against Dominic Breazeale was laughing out loud while trying to utter the words, “You gotta be kiddin’ me…right?” I mean seriously, after all the bloviating Wilder had been doing you would think he could chose a better and more viable opponent than that.

Now before you start saying to yourselves, “There he goes again hating on another fighter,” know this…100% of the people who I spoke to about this had exactly the same thought. Those people would be other boxing journalists, boxers and their trainers and hard core boxing fans. Every single one of the to a man found Wilder picking Breazeale for his next test comical if not ridiculous.

Thinking Out Loud
 
By William Trillo
As I finished watching Part 1 of HBO’s Muhammad Ali Documentary, “What’s My Name”, I couldn’t stop wondering why it was that everything Ali did was so polarizing and why all his actions both inside and outside the ring would influence and affect me in such a way that I couldn’t help but stand in awe of the man. Ali truly made a lasting impression on my life It also had me wondering why so many of today’s fighters who try to imitate “The Greatest”, (Mayweather Jr., Wilder, Classless Claressa, et. al.), make me wanna vomit.

Sorry, but I am not one to mince words.

  HBO Statement On The Passing
Of Hall of Famer Harold Lederman
 
“Harold Lederman had a lifelong love affair with the sport of boxing. Over the past fifty years he was universally respected and celebrated by the many people who make the sport what it is. Harold was happiest when seated ringside, studying the action and scoring the fight. When he joined HBO Sports in 1986 he added a new and critical component to live boxing coverage. Viewers embraced his unique style and his command of the rules while his broadcast colleagues relished his enthusiasm and boundless energy. He was an historian and walking rulebook. He always had time for you whether you were a heavyweight champion or just a spectator looking to say hello. Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife Eileen and daughters Julie and Iris. There isn’t a person in the sport who won’t miss our Harold Lederman.”
