“Don't Blame UFC for Boxing's Woes” on TheSweetScience.com 

My latest column is up on TheSweetScience.com.

It is called “Don't Blame UFC for Boxing's Woes” and begins to examine the relation of UFC’s growth to boxing’s decline, mainly from the perspective of what boxing has done wrong. Hint: If you are reading this, you may be part of the solution.

NO HOLDS BARRED: Eddie Goldman Speaks With Ron Waterman 

On this week’s edition of NO HOLDS BARRED, host Eddie Goldman speaks with super heavyweight mixed martial arts fighter Ron “H2OMan” Waterman.

In one of the main fights on the July 22 card of the World Fighting Alliance (WFA), at the Forum in Los Angeles and on pay-per-view, Ron takes on former UFC heavyweight champion Ricco Rodriguez. This fight is a rematch, as last August Ron won a unanimous decision over Ricco in a bout in the World Extreme Cagefighting organization.

Ron also has a web site, with lots more information, at http://ronwaterman.com/.

NO HOLDS BARRED host and producer Eddie Goldman also comments on some recent trends, both positive and negative, in both the mixed martial arts and much of the media which claims to cover it.

NO HOLDS BARRED Is Up, But Problems Persist on One Site

For those trying to listen to the new edition of NO HOLDS BARRED with our interview with Ron Waterman on PodOmatic, we have been informed that the site is very slow today because they are moving everyone's shows and info over to what they call "a new storage array which is faster, bigger, and more reliable." We are also told this should be corrected in "the next several hours."

If you have trouble with that link, these two are working at NowPublic.com and Archive.org.

SecondsOut Radio: Oscar De La Hoya and the New Generation 

On this week’s edition of SecondsOut Radio, host Eddie Goldman discusses both the old and the new in boxing.

We speak with Oscar De La Hoya about his postponing making a final decision about his future as an active fighter. De La Hoya also announced that he will not be fighting September 16, but hopes to make his farewell fight sometime next year against Floyd Mayweather Jr.

We also speak with several young fighters whose family elders had already made their names in boxing and who are now undefeated prospects trying to make names for themselves. Undefeated heavyweight Chazz Witherspoon (12-0, 7 KOs, and cousin of Tim Witherspoon), undefeated middleweight James McGirt (11-0, 1 NC, 7 KOs, and son of Buddy McGirt), and undefeated middleweight Ronald Hearns (8-0, 6 KOs, and son of Thomas “Hitman” Hearns) will all be fighting Sat., July 1, at the Little River Casino Resort in Manistee, Michigan. This card will be televised in the U.S. on the Showtime series “ShoBox: The New Generation”. We spoke with Tim Witherspoon, Chazz Witherspoon, James McGirt, Ronald Hearns, and promoter Lou DiBella both about this card and also what it means for young fighters with legendary names to make it on their own in boxing.

We also call attention to a new article on SecondsOut.com by Dr. Margaret Goodman, a neurologist and former Chief Ringside Physician, and Chairman of the Nevada State Athletic Commission Medical Advisory Board, and, a co-founder of the Combat Sports Center for Safety and Research, about Joe Mesi’s fight this past Friday night in Montreal, which was telecast in the U.S. on ESPN2’s “Friday Night Fights”. Mesi was in his second fight back after getting an indefinite medical suspension by the Nevada commission for repeated subdural hematomas (bleeding on the brain) thrown out on a legal technicality. She wrote, “I think it's unfortunate that ESPN’s commentators on site and in the studio failed to mention some very important points.” The entire piece can be seen here.

It is free to listen to SecondsOut Radio, but you must register to gain access to it. Just click here, and listen, learn, and enjoy.
