Crawford Vs Khan After “Action” Report And Round Table Discussion

In the spirit of family, togetherness, and however many holidays are being celebrated this weekend, the TQBR team has come together again.

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.

Execution Of The Ego: Terence Crawford Vs. Amir Khan Preview And Prediction

There are certain people we meet throughout our lives that seem to get far too many chances. Normally they get chances we feel we deserved and it engenders resentment.

With a Little Help From My Friends: Jaime Munguia MD12 Dennis Hogan

Corruption or incompetence? That’s the eternal question with boxing’s unending flirtation with scripted reality television.

In order to make sense of the 12 round majority decision junior middleweight […]

Mediocrity in Minneapolis: Truax Vs. Quillin Ends In No Contest

On another night when Premier Boxing Champions needed its main event to deliver, it didn’t. You can’t predict accidental headbutts ending the main event after two rounds, but the crowd at the Armory in Minneapolis, Minnesota on FoxSports1 didn’t get a consolation prize either. The idea for the card was that local standout Caleb Truax […]

Claressa Shields Dominates Christina Hammer In ‘Most Significant Women’s Boxing Match Of All-Time’

Showtime commentators dubbed it the “most significant women’s boxing match of all time,” although there are other contenders.

Alphabets Deliver Foretold Vasyiliy Lomachenko Vs Anthony Crolla Mismatch

These are the times where you don’t hear from the defenders of the WBA, WBO, WBF and IBF belts who somehow think they’re good for boxing: when we get a mismatch nobody else but one of the alphabets wanted, asked for, or expected to be remotely competitive. Vasiliy Lomachenko crumpled his lightweight mandatory challenger Anthony […]

The Six Weirdest Things Jim Lampley Has Cried About

Let’s just get this out of the way right off the bat: It’s OK to cry. It’s good to cry. I’m crying right now, mostly about Verne Troyer’s death and how I never got to prove my theory that with enough duct tape and personal lubricant you could fit him inside a Pringles can. But […]

Heavyweight Madness: A Division On The Verge Of A Cold War

With news breaking last week that Deontay Wilder and Dominic Breazeale will headline a Showtime Championship Boxing card on May 18 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, the heavyweight division seems to have gotten even more strained, just for the moment. Before I ruin your day and ask you how you even still put […]

The Wrong Call: Errol Spence Jr. Dominates Smaller Mikey Garcia

Bravery and stupidity often go hand in hand. When the bravery pays off in victory, you look the hero. When the bravery punishes you with pain, you look like you made a foolish choice. Mikey Garcia isn’t stupid in the ring, but Saturday night on Fox Pay-Per-View, his decision to move up to welterweight against […]

Errol Spence Jr. Vs Mikey Garcia: TQBR Roundtable Preview And Prediction

Like Arthur’s knights, even the one who fucked his wife, had douchey hair, and eventually the ignominy of being portrayed by Richard Gere, the TQBR Crew must come together to discuss the important topics of the day. Smartphones our swords, and emotional disturbance our armor, we sally forth once more unto the breach, dear friends, once […]

Skill Vs. Will: Dmitry Bivol Easily Outpoints Joe Smith Jr.

Since his ascension to the pro ranks after a superlative amateur career, in which he reportedly went 268-15, Dmitry Bivol (16-0, 11 KO) has had a slight “shit or get off the pot” aura surrounding him.
