When The Music Flows: Navarette KO3 De Vaca

Prizefighters are entertainers. And like all entertainers, their act has to be perfected. Normally that’s done at the gym. And normally we get crabby when we get practice instead of a show. Normally. Saturday night from the Banc of California Stadium in Los Angeles, televised on ESPN, junior featherweight Emanuel Navarette (28-1, 24 KO) got […]

He is survived by his wife Elizabeth, and their 2 year old son, Daniel. Dadashev was 28 years old. After the 11th round, trainer Buddy McGirt pleaded with Dadashev to […]

Mid Year After Action Report and Round Table Discussion

July kind of drags. For most of us, it’s hotter than Satan’s taint, and everything tends to find itself in a bit of a holding pattern. Typically there aren’t a lot of fight cards either. So, in what has been a surprisingly entertaining year to date, now feels like the exact right time to take […]

Lunacy In Latvia: Briedis And Dorticos Notch Wins In WBSS Semi-Finals

In a world, or a sport, that isn’t total chaos, we’d still be discussing Yuniel Dorticos’ highlight reel knockout of Andrew Tabiti (17-1, 13 KO) in their World Boxing Super Series cruiserweight semi-final fight yesterday on DAZN from Riga, Latvia. In what had been an ugly, clinch and headbutt filled affair punctuated only briefly by […]

Viva Andy! Anthony Joshua Vs Andy Ruiz After Action Report

  Almost every knowledgeable boxing fan/writer picked Anthony Joshua to win with the caveat that Andy Ruiz can really fight and might give him some trouble. What, in your mind, did Ruiz do that allowed him to be so effective? Brent: First and foremost Ruiz is just a damn good fighter. He’s as fundamentally sound […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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. The more chances they get, the more the resentment grows. It’s not only the belief that they are unworthy of the opportunities but also the gnawing […]

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 […]

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 […]

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