NO HOLDS BARRED: IFL's Gareb Shamus, NHB Mailbag, and More 


  • NO HOLDS BARRED on PodOmatic


  • On this edition of NO HOLDS BARRED, the second this week, host Eddie Goldman begins by discussing the ongoing 2006 World Championships of Wrestling and answering mail about boxing, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, wrestling, and mixed martial arts.

    Next up is commentary on Thursday's panel discussion in New York hosted by the National Sports Marketing Network entitled "Mixed Martial Arts: Fighting its Way into the Mainstream." Representing the MMA promotions were Michael Sakin, Vice President, Sales & Sponsorship of the Ultimate Fighting Championship, and Gareb Shamus, co-founder and CEO, International Fight League. In particular, Sakin's presentation, par for the course for the revisionist history being presented by the present owners and suits who run the UFC, is discussed, dissected, and decimated.

    Following this panel discussion, we had a chance to speak with Gareb Shamus, and we have that interview for you right here on NO HOLDS BARRED.

    The 2006 World Championships of Wrestling are taking place Sept. 26 through Oct. 1, 2006, in Guangzhou, China. The web page of USA Wrestling, TheMat.com, has set up a special section to cover the World Championships, which is here. The official event web site for the World Championships is here.

    On this week's edition of SecondsOut Radio, host Eddie Goldman speaks with some of the top pound-for-pound boxers in the world today.

    The unbeaten Floyd Mayweather Jr. (35-0, 24 KOs) is regarded by many observers as standing atop boxing's mythical pound-for-pound rankings. His next fight will be against the welterweight champion of the world, Carlos Baldomir (43-9-6, 13 KOs), November 4 in Las Vegas. At a recent news conference at New York's Tavern on the Green, we spoke with both Mayweather and Baldomir, as well as Mayweather’s new promoter, the President of Goossen Tutor Promotions, Dan Goossen.

    The unbeaten Laila Ali (22-0, 19 KOs) is also regarded by many observers as being the best female boxer in the world today. On November 11, she will be having her debut fight at New York's historic Madison Square Garden, where her legendary father, Muhammad Ali, had fought. While at this time her opponent has not yet been signed, we did speak with Laila Ali at a prefight news conference at the Garden last week to announce this event.

    NO HOLDS BARRED: Don King 



  • NO HOLDS BARRED on PodOmatic

  • On this edition of NO HOLDS BARRED, host Eddie Goldman interviews that unique boxing promoter, Don King, and plays an extended excerpt from his Sept. 18 New York news conference, which was, as usual, one of his patented marathon performances.

    King was in New York to hype the Nov. 4 fight between WBO heavyweight champion Sergei Liakhovich (23-1, 14 KOs) and former linear heavyweight champion Shannon Briggs (47-4-1, 41 KOs). This fight, Liakhovich's first title defense since winning that belt from Lamon Brewster April 1 of this year, will take place in Phoenix, Arizona, at Chase Field, the home of baseball's Diamondbacks, and be shown in the U.S. on Showtime.

    Besides merely informing the media that this fight is on, King went to great lengths to demonstrate that, with four different fighters holding the four major heavyweight belts, in his view, "Sergei Liakhovich is the top world champion in boxing today." At that Sept. 18 news conference at Gallagher's Steak House in Manhattan, King thus made his usual lengthy presentation, complete with video clips highlighting both his version of the history of boxing's heavyweight division since the early 1970's, the fall of the Soviet bloc, and why Liakhovich, the man who beat Brewster who had beaten Wladimir Klitschko, is the top heavyweight today.

    If you have never attended or heard Don King in action at one of what are essentially his one-man shows, now you can right here.

    We first have an interview with King right after the news conference. We then run the most essential part from that news conference. And, as always, we add our own NO HOLDS BARRED commentary.

    through iTunes.

    The show is in MP3 format, so may take some time to download.
