Anthony Joshua Shatters A Reluctant Eric Molina

Eric Molina came into Saturday’s underdog match-up with talented young heavyweight Anthony Joshua touting that he’d had a full training camp for the first time. The moment the opening bell rang, he looked more like a guy who didn’t want to be there. He lasted three rounds before Joshua smashed him to pieces. The bout, […]

Joseph Parker Earns Majority Decision Over Andy Ruiz

In a wide-open heavyweight division, Joseph Parker positioned himself at the front of the pack on Saturday with a tense, hard-fought majority decision win over Andy Ruiz, Jr. Saturday in Auckland, New Zealand. The unflappable Parker, the hometown favorite, used his jab to pick off rounds against the Mexican-American challenger, who never managed to turn […]

Anthony Joshua, Joseph Parker And The Rest Of The Week’s Boxing Schedule

It’s a packed fight weekend, but one tables-ladders-chairs match already got started in advance, as heavyweight Dereck Chisora threw a whole damn table at Dillian Whyte. And that’s one of the least interesting bouts on the ledger. Terence Crawford vs John Molina, Saturday, HBO, Omaha Neb. Junior welterweight champion Terence Crawford returns to his hometown for […]

The Liver Punch: Give Me A Trainwreck

Last week, still grouchy from the awful scorecards in Sergey Kovalev vs Andre Ward, I pondered if Nicholas Walters might give Vasyl Lomachenko a real test, and in doing so elevate both fighters. We got about half of that. Lomachenko was elevated in some minds because he was brilliant. That Walters decided after seven rounds […]

Vasyl Lomachenko Dominates Cowardly Nicholas Walters

A super-exciting matchup we’d waited for forever turned into a mismatch followed by a quit job of epic proportions on HBO Saturday night, as Vasyl Lomachenko outclassed a toilet paper-soft Nicholas Walters to force Walters to give an actual “no mas.” This was honestly one of the best couple pairings that could be made in […]

The Liver Punch: We Need Another Reckoning

No matter how gifted you are, ultimately you will be judged by your opposition. In fact, the more talent you have, the more people will want you to be tested. There’s a reason that average kids who get B’s are lauded and intelligent kids who do the same are disappointments. People might give you the […]

Vasyl Lomachenko Vs Nicholas Walters And The Rest Of The Week’s Boxing Schedule

Boxing fans have been spoiled in November: Manny Pacquiao’s return, Andre Ward vs Sergey Kovalev and now the first one on this list. Vasyl Lomachenko vs Nicholas Walters, Saturday, HBO, Las Vegas.  On paper, Pacquiao vs Jessie Vargas and Ward vs Kovalev weren’t likely to produce amazing results, but Ward vs Kovalev came close. Lomachenko […]

Andre Ward Narrowly Defeats Sergey Kovalev In A Corker

We’re going to debate the scorecards in Andre Ward vs Sergey Kovalev for a long time, a bout Saturday night in which Ward barely won according to all three judges but not according to most fans watching. What we won’t debate is that we got a hugely compelling battle, one with momentum shifts, a knockdown […]

Sergey Kovalev Vs Andre Ward Results: Undercard

It’s not the world’s greatest undercard for the Sergey Kovalev vs Andre Ward HBO Pay-Per-View show or anything like it, but hell, let’s give it its own post. In reverse chronological order: ****** Roc Nation’s much-hyped prospect Maurice Hooker walked away with an absolutely absurd draw against Darleys Perez, who schooled the young junior welterweight […]

A Welcome Mystery: Sergey Kovalev Vs Andre Ward Preview And Prediction

We live in the supposed information age. Everything that everyone does is compiled, quantified, and analyzed to deliver a more specialized experience whether you’re shopping or watching TV. Sports have also followed this trend, and in many ways led the charge. The experience of fandom is lost to some degree because you’re constantly being updated […]

TQBR Roundtable: Kovalev Vs Ward Edition

Whilst I admit we aren’t exactly the crew at My-T-Sharp, the staff here at TQBR is always up to gather round our smart phones and email each other at all hours of the night as we try to hash out our varying opinions of the sport’s biggest fights. Sergey Kovalev vs Andre Ward may not […]

Sergey Kovalev Vs Andre Ward And The Rest Of The Week’s Boxing Schedule

This weekend’s big, big main event has everyone dizzy with anticipation. So let’s clear the deck first before getting into staff roundtables and such. Sergey Kovalev Vs Andre Ward undercard, Saturday, HBO Pay-Per-View, Las Vegas. Matthew Swain will soon preview the main event, and the roundtable will cover the rest of the team’s views. The […]

Danny Garcia And The Rest Of The Week’s Boxing Schedule

Maybe it’s no fair to evoke the “cherry picker” meme with Danny Garcia planning to face Keith Thurman next year, but for one more night, it’s legit. Danny Garcia vs Samuel Vargas, Saturday, Spike, Philadelphia. So, yeah, Garcia is facing a guy who was fed to a still-green welterweight Errol Spence, Jr. last year. And Spence, […]

The Liver Punch: No One Likes A Human Being

There’s a reality known to anyone from a small town. It’s that your peers cannot wait for you to fail. Any step outside the well-trod path is met with raised eyebrows from those who know that this spells your doom. When you do manage to go forward and make something truly your own, those very […]

Manny Pacquiao Vs Jessie Vargas Results

Sometimes a glimmer is enough. Manny Pacquiao picked up another meaningless alphabet strap that added nothing to his legacy by defeating a Jessie Vargas Saturday night. He’s already done enough to secure his Hall of Fame status. He might have needed the money, but he didn’t need the adulation. Pacquiao wasn’t the destroyer of old […]
