Ex-Boxingranks.com Writers Still Active Online: Roberto Duran Interview on SI.com and Wright-Soliman Analysis on HBO.com
My favorite questions:
7. What is your favorite movie?
Duran: I like all movies. Maybe Casablanca. Anything with Humphrey Bogart. And Steve McQueen -- The Magnificent Seven. Also Mickey Rooney -- Rooney, not Rourke [laughs].
8. What about Cinderella Man or Million Dollar Baby?
Duran: [Shrugs] They were not so real.
Rich, by the way, was one of the many great writers I was privileged to edit in our brief but glorious run at Boxingranks.com where I served as editor-in-chief.
Speaking of old Boxingranks.com writers, two of them are writing away at HBO.com. Ron Borges has been there for some time, while Nat Gottlieb is a new addition. They especially have a lot to say about tonight's Winky Wright-Sam Soliman fight and the middleweight division.
With all these former Boxingranks.com wordsmiths floating around, you would think that more web sites would gobble up the rest of its former staff -- that is, if they want to pay for intelligent, well-written, hard-hitting, fiercely independent, and uniquely insightful analysis. I guess that disqualifies the bulk of them.

Did it ever occur to you that some of the writers are independemtly wealthy and don't need to write for money. That does not make them poor writers.
