NO HOLDS BARRED: Mo Lawal, Wrestling and the Combat Sports 




  • NO HOLDS BARRED on PodOmatic


  • On this edition of NO HOLDS BARRED, host Eddie Goldman speaks with freestyle wrestler Mo Lawal, a member of the US national team.

    Mo Lawal is an athlete who embodies the totality of the combat sports. He resides and trains at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, and is a 2008 Olympic hopeful. He is also an avid boxing fan, has trained in boxing, and is friends with numerous boxers. After his wrestling career is over, he plans to become a professional mixed martial arts fighter.

    He will also be wrestling at the prestigious Alexander Medved International in Minsk, Belarus, Oct. 19-21, at 96 kg/211.5 lbs.

    In a lengthy discussion, we talked about his training regimen at the Olympic Training Center; the recent 2007 world wrestling championships in Baku, Azerbaijan, which he attended; some of the burning controversies in international wrestling; his prospects for making the Olympic team in 2008; the Medved tournament; major boxing cards coming up; ties between wrestlers and boxers at the Olympic Training Center; what his specific plans are for entering mixed martial arts; and more.

    NO HOLDS BARRED: A Tale of Two 44-Year-Old Heavyweights 


  • NO HOLDS BARRED on PodOmatic


  • On this edition of NO HOLDS BARRED, host Eddie Goldman discusses the recent controversies involving two 44-year-old heavyweight fighters and former world champions: boxer Evander Holyfield and mixed martial arts fighter Randy Couture.

    Holyfield just dropped a lopsided unanimous decision to WBO heavyweight champion Sultan Ibragimov in Moscow, Russia, this past Saturday, October 13. Many are now calling for the obvious, for Holyfield, who turns 45 this coming Friday, to retire. But many in the American boxing media were just this past week telling us that Holyfield actually stood a real chance to win in this fight.

    Couture announced last week that he was quitting the UFC and vacating his heavyweight title there. His main beefs were that top heavyweight Fedor Emelianenko had just signed with another promotion, M-1 of Russia, and that he was not being compensated fairly and had been told he was the second-highest paid fighter in that company when he had heard directly from other fighters that he was not.

    In another no-holds-barred commentary, we discuss what all this says about the sycophantic media which covers both sports, the future of boxing and its beleaguered heavyweight division, and the future of UFC now that it has abruptly lost perhaps its most popular fighter of all time.

    (Note: This edition of NO HOLDS BARRED includes some explicit language.)

    SecondsOut Radio: Evander Holyfield 

  • SecondsOut Radio with Eddie Goldman


  • On this week's edition of SecondsOut Radio, host Eddie Goldman discusses Saturday's fight between WBO heavyweight champ Sultan Ibragimov (22-0-1, 17 KOs) and former heavyweight champion, 44-year-old Evander Holyfield (41-9-2, 27 KOs), held at the Khodynka Arena in Moscow, Russia. Ibragimov retained his title with a lopsided 12-round decision, winning by scores of 118-110 and 117-111 twice.

    We open with the unedited and complete audio from Evander Holyfield's postfight media teleconference call held with American boxing journalists shortly after the fight. Included on this call are some comments by promoter Kathy Duva. Right after that, we offer our own opinion on what happened Saturday night, and whether or not Evander Holyfield should retire as a professional fighter.

    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.
