NO HOLDS BARRED: Jay Larkin on Calzaghe-Kessler, IFL Grand Prix, and Changes in IFL Team Concept 


  • NO HOLDS BARRED on PodOmatic


  • On this special edition of NO HOLDS BARRED, host Eddie Goldman speaks with Jay Larkin, the new president and COO of the International Fight League.

    Jay Larkin headed the acclaimed boxing telecasts on Showtime for two decades. He still is involved in boxing and will oversee HBO’s broadcast of the super middleweight title unification fight between Joe Calzaghe and Mikkel Kessler in Cardiff, Wales, this Saturday, November 3. While in Wales, he also will be on the phone to run the first-ever live MMA event on primetime network TV, when the IFL holds its World Grand Prix broadcast live on MyNetworkTV from the Sears Centre near Chicago. Both events will air live at 9 PM ET/8 PM CT.

    We spoke with him Monday at his IFL office in New York as he was preparing for both events. We discussed the latest news on the Calzaghe-Kessler fight; the IFL Grand Prix; the major changes that are in store for the IFL's team concept; and much more.

  • SecondsOut Radio with Eddie Goldman


  • On this week's edition of SecondsOut Radio, host Eddie Goldman provides a show chock full of fighter interviews about the major fights coming up next weekend, which will be one of the busiest in boxing this year.

    Before speaking with the fighters who are entering the ring in the coming week, we got comments from Floyd Mayweather (38-0, 24 KOs), who takes on Ricky Hatton (43-0, 31 KOs) December 8 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada. We asked him how he would like the boxing media to improve its coverage of the sport. Leonard Ellerbe, the CEO of Mayweather Promotions, which is co-promoting this fight along with Golden Boy Promotions, also commented on Floyd's coverage in the mainstream media. Mayweather-Hatton will be shown in the US on HBO Pay-Per-View.

    This coming Saturday, November 3, the long-awaited showdown between the two undefeated super middleweight champions, Joe Calzaghe (43-0, 32 KOs) from Newbridge, Wales, and Mikkel Kessler (39-0, 29 KOs) from Copenhagen, Denmark, takes place at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff, Wales. We spoke with Joe Calzaghe about his approach to technique and what to expect in this fight. Calzaghe-Kessler will be shown live in the US on HBO and on the subscription channel Setanta in Britain.

    Saturday, November 3, will also see an important title doubleheader coming from the Desert Diamond Casino, n Sahuarita, Arizona, near Tucson. On that card, which will be shown live in the US on Showtime, another one of the top pound-for-pound fighters in the world, WBC super featherweight champion Juan Manuel Marquez (47-3-1, 35 KOs) defends his belt against Rocky Juarez (27-3, 19 KOs). Also on that card, IBF featherweight champion Robert Guerrero (20-1-1, 13 KOs) defends his belt against Martin Honorio (24-3-1, 12 KOs).

    We spoke with Juan Manuel Marquez, Rocky Juarez, Robert Guerrero, and Martin Honorio to hear what they expect to happen this coming Saturday night.

    The night before these competing HBO and Showtime telecasts, a heavyweight crossroads fights takes place between the undefeated Eddie Chambers (29-0, 16 KOs) and former world title challenger Calvin Brock (31-1, 23 KOs). This will be shown live in the US on the ShoBox: The New Generation series on Showtime Friday, November 2, from the Emerald Queen Casino in Tacoma, Wash. We got comments from both Eddie Chambers and Calvin Brock about what to expect Friday night.
