  • NO HOLDS BARRED on PodOmatic


  • On this edition of NO HOLDS BARRED, host Eddie Goldman presents an interview marathon.

    At a news conference in New York Tuesday, Dec. 11, we spoke with middleweight champion Kelly Pavlik (32-0, 29 KOs). He has a rematch at 166 pounds with the man he defeated this past September, Jermain Taylor (27-1-1, 17 KOs), Feb. 16, 2008, in Las Vegas. We also spoke with Pavlik's promoter, Bob Arum, about the successful year boxing has had in 2007, and Taylor's trainer, Ozell Nelson, about what changes their team plans to make in this rematch with Pavlik and about Taylor's engaging manner.

    We also spoke at this news conference with HBO Sports president Ross Greenburg. We got the latest, as if Tuesday afternoon, as to what he expects the number of buys for last Saturday's Mayweather-Hatton pay-per-view. And we spoke with him about what plans HBO might have for televising mixed martial arts events.

    On a media teleconference call also Tuesday, we spoke with mixed martial arts fighters Tim Kennedy and Jason "Mayhem" Miller. These two middleweights fight this coming Sat., Dec. 15, on the HDNet Fights card at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas. Miller and Kennedy first fought each other in February 2003 in an Extreme Challenge tournament, with Kennedy winning a decision.

    This past Thursday, Dec. 6, there was a boxing card at the Utopia Paradise Theater in the Bronx, NY. After their fights, we spoke with the new NABF junior middleweight titleholder Yuri Foreman (24-0, 8 KOs), who took a split decision over Andrey Tsurkan (25-3, 16 KOs) to win that belt. We spoke with junior middleweight Sergio Martinez (41-1-1, 21 KO’s), who won his bout by a fourth-round TKO over Russell Jordan. We spoke with heavyweight Monte Barrett (32-6, 18 KOs), who avenged a second-round stoppage by veteran Cliff Couser (26-14, 14 KOs) over him in July by stopping Couser in the second round on this card. We spoke with welterweight contender Joshua Clottey, who has as eliminator fight with the unbeaten Shamone Alvarez Dec. 20 in Las Vegas and was at this card. And we spoke with baseball legend Ozzie Smith who was ringside enjoying the fights about why he likes boxing.

    NO HOLDS BARRED: Mayweather-Hatton Review, Wladimir Klitschko, Edwin Moses, S.R. Tommie 


  • NO HOLDS BARRED on PodOmatic


  • On this edition of NO HOLDS BARRED, host Eddie Goldman begins by reviewing the December 8 showdown between WBC welterweight champ Floyd Mayweather Jr. (39-0, 25 KOs) and Ricky Hatton (43-1, 31 KOs). Mayweather won this exciting fight by a tenth-round knockout. We discuss the fight itself and the major controversies it produced. We also discuss why coverage in the British media of this fight was far superior to that in the American media. This fight, carried live on HBO Pay-Per-View in the U.S., will be replayed on HBO Saturday, December 15, at 10:15 PM (EST/PST).

    Next, we speak with IBF heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko (49-3, 44 KOs), generally regarded as the best in that weight class today. He will be fighting a unification bout with the WBO champion Sultan Ibragimov (22-0-1, 17 KOs) Saturday, February 23, at Madison Square Garden in New York. Klitschko sat down for a roundtable discussion with the media at a news conference last week. We have that entire discussion, where he stresses the need not only for the heavyweight titles to be unified, but also for an international rather than a nationalistic approach to be taken to the sport of boxing.

    Wladimir Klitschko is also working with the Laureus Sport for Good Foundation, an international organization which runs programs around the world assisting over 150,000 young people. We also spoke with Olympic gold medalist hurdler Edwin Moses, chairman of the Laureus World Sports Academy, about these activities and how Wladimir Klitschko is helping them.

    Sultan Ibragimov is promoted by Seminole Warriors Boxing. Also at the news conference was S.R. (Sally) Tommie of the Seminole Tribe of Florida. We spoke with her about both their involvement with Seminole Warriors Boxing and this fight, and the general history of the storied Seminole Tribe.
