WBSS And Deontay Wilder vs Dominic Breazeale After Action Report

I’ll leave it to you to decide which one of us is which, but the TQBR boys are back for an interrogation session about the previous weekend’s goings-on, so with no further ado, light a smoke, gimp down the sidewalk and get to reading you sonsabitches. Naoya Inoue was clearly created in a lab by […]

Naoya Inoue Isn’t Fair

Are we sure this kid isn’t Kazakh? The thought dawned on me the first time watching Naoya Inoue. It might have been his swarming stoppage of Adrian Hernandez to win a junior flyweight title. Or maybe when he hopped a weight class to turn Omar Narvaez’s liver into pâté and swipe his belt. Could have […]

Identity Crisis: Deontay Wilder Blows Out Dominic Breazeale

If you attempted to reach Deontay Wilder this week and were unsuccessful in doing so, it’s because the hulking heavyweight was busy rounding off the edges of the manufactured personality he would try out for the build-up to his fight with Dominic Breazeale (20-2, 18 KO) on Saturday night at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn […]

Bipolar: Hurd-Williams And Navarette-Dogboe After Action Report

It’s Monday, boys and girls. So you know what that means: TQBR group therapy. This is a safe space in which Jason and Tim help Brent and I fulfill our court-mandated counseling sessions.  We reveal our deepest insecurities, talk about our feelings, and bat opinions back and forth about the previous weekend’s boxing matches.  Some […]

The Liver Punch: Genesis 22, The Sacrificing Of Isaac

Faith, we’re often assured, is one of the greatest gifts to mankind. It provides comfort in dark moments and gives its bearers a sense that there is some plan. Without it, the chaos of the universe would be too much to endure, and that deep chasm of meaninglessness would overcome even the strongest soul. Most […]

Even The Losers: Julian Williams Decisions Jarrett Hurd In A Thriller

After his hard fought and well deserved unanimous decision victory over previously undefeated Jarrett Hurd was announced to the 5,105 partisan fans in attendance Saturday at the EagleBank Arena in Fairfax, Va., Julian “J Rock” Williams had a message for the boxing world. “Stop condemning fighters after they take a loss. It’s boxing, things happen.” […]

Canelo Vs. Jacobs: After Action Report And Round Table Discussion

The TQBR boys have gathered yet again to discuss the goings on of a fairly busy boxing weekend. This week, Maestro Hedtke asked us the questions, and we dutifully answered. Langendorf even managed to rub our noses in the fact that he’s a functioning adult with people that love him. What an asshole. 1.What was […]

Canelo Alvarez Sneaks Middleweight Championship From Daniel Jacobs

It wasn’t easy. But Canelo Alvarez, the middleweight champion, outboxed Daniel Jacobs Saturday night on DAZN and won a unanimous decision to keep his undisputed status. Your scribe thought it could’ve gone either way but Canelo won ultimately. We had a slick v slick performance and Canelo edged it. It was so difficult to assess […]

Right Here, Right Now: Regis Prograis Dominates Kiryl Relikh

The elastic promise of future potential will always outweigh the concrete truths of our present. In life, and most certainly in boxing, we spend so much time wondering what will be that we forget to appreciate what is. This guy could be a contender. He might be a champion. Possibly even a pound for pound […]

Don’t Stop Believin’: Nonito Donaire Puts Stephon Young To Sleep

They say the punching power is the last thing to go. For the eternally youthful yet somehow 36(!) year old Nonito Donaire (40-5, 26 KO) this certainly holds true, though I’d argue his hairline may outlast his near mythically heavy hands. For all the effects that asshole father time has had on the aging Donaire’s […]

Baffler: Juan Francisco Estrada Tops Srisaket Sor Rungvisai In Rematch

The rematch between Juan Francisco Estrada and Srisaket Sor Rungvisai on DAZN Saturday was a good one, but more than anything, it was just sort of… curious. Let’s not bury a key fact here: Estrada took the junior bantamweight crown by scores of 116-112 and 115-113 twice. And yet, it didn’t need to be that […]

Melons Balled: Terence Crawford Tops Amir Khan

Give Amir Khan this: He does not merely invite derision. When Amir Khan comes calling, he asks derision to stay in the guest house for the week, drink all his top-shelf liquor and drive his wife around town, keep her company – you know, just show her a good time. It is easy for boxing […]

Come Out and Play: Danny Garcia Batters Adrian Granados

Stardom in boxing is a fickle thing. It can’t be forced or manufactured. It happens organically or not at all and remains one of the last things in this sport that can’t be bought. Some fighters attain stardom because of their talent, others in spite of it. Some guys lack the connections while others rely […]
