NO HOLDS BARRED: Mark Taffet, Jacqui Snow and Pay-Per-View (Remix) 

This entire show is the same as the one released yesterday, but thanks go to Marc Snow for cleaning up some of the audio problems with our interview with Jacqui Snow. Here is the info again, with a new link on Podomatic:

NO HOLDS BARRED: Is the Pay-Per-View TV Business Model Dead? Mark Taffet and Jacqui Snow


  • NO HOLDS BARRED on PodOmatic


  • On this edition of NO HOLDS BARRED, host Eddie Goldman discusses the future of the most important business model and source of revenue currently used in combat sports like boxing and mixed martial arts: pay-per-view television.

    Some might question whether this business model is in any real danger at present. UFC toppled the all-time annual pay-per-view TV revenue record by reportedly bringing in more than $200 million in 2006, while the De La Hoya-Mayweather fight, held May 5, 2007, shattered all records for a single pay-per-view TV event in the U.S. by getting 2.15 million buys and $120 million in revenue.

    We first speak about pay-per-view with Mark Taffet, senior vice president of sports operations and pay-per-view for HBO Sports, which distributed De La Hoya-Mayweather. We also got his comment on a possible HBO-UFC deal.

    We next have a lengthy discussion with a critic of pay-per-view TV, boxing writer Jacqui Snow. She has her own web site and also serves as the moderator of the MySpace boxing group. She discusses the numerous problems with this model, including the growth of numerous web sites which stream these pay-per-views for free. Such sites, several of which she names, may be doing so in violation of copyright restrictions. However, similar to how the original Napster changed how music was distributed, these sites may also force a radical change in the business model of the combat sports.

    She has written, "once the genie's out of the bottle, there's no forcing it back," and explains that point in depth. We also discuss how the Internet is actually saving boxing.

    SecondsOut Radio: Duddy, Keitt, McLoughlin, Quillin, Olszewski, Taylor-Spinks Controversy 

    SecondsOut Radio: John Duddy, Harry Keitt, Eddie McLoughlin, Peter "Kid Chocolate" Quillin, Eileen Olszewski, Taylor-Spinks Controversy

  • SecondsOut Radio with Eddie Goldman

  • On this week's edition of SecondsOut Radio, host Eddie Goldman begins by diving headlong into the controversy over the scoring of this past Saturday's middleweight title fight at the FedExForum in Memphis, Tennessee, between the champion Jermain Taylor (27-0-1, 17 KOs) and Cory Spinks (36-4, 11 KOs), who is the IBF 154-pound champion. While this tedious fight may have been dreadful to watch, Taylor won by a split decision. Many observers, however, believe that Spinks, despite being the lighter-hitting fighter, was more active, quicker, and better defensively than Taylor, and actually deserved the verdict.

    This past Friday night, May 18, at the Beacon Theatre in New York City, middleweight "Ireland's" John Duddy upped his record to 20-0 (15) by taking a clear-cut ten-round unanimous decision over journeyman Dupre Strickland (18-2-1, 7 KOs). In doing so, however, Duddy did not provide the electric performance which he has given his growing number of fans in numerous previous fights. He won, but there were few fireworks.

    Right after the fight, we spoke with both John Duddy and his trainer Harry Keitt to get their evaluations of this outing. We also spoke with promoter Eddie McLoughlin of Irish Ropes, which put on this card, about how he thought the event as a whole turned out. And we spoke with two of boxing's rising stars who each scored victories on the undercard, middleweight Peter "Kid Chocolate" Quillin (12-0, 11 KOs) and junior bantamweight Eileen Olszewski (3-0, 0 KOs), about their fights and what lies ahead for them.
