On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman begins by reviewing the new documentary film "JC Chavez", which focuses on the life and career of the legendary Mexican boxer and icon, Julio Cesar Chavez. After a 25-year professional career which included numerous world championships in the super featherweight, lightweight, and light welterweight divisions, Chavez retired in 2005 with a record of 107-6-2, with 86 KOs. This worthwhile documentary, directed by Diego Luna, provides a telling look at both Chavez the man and Chavez the fighter.
We next hear from EliteXC welterweight champion Jake Shields, who defends his title against Paul Daley Saturday, Oct. 4, at the BankAtlantic Center in Sunrise, Fla., on the CBS EliteXC Saturday Night Fights mixed martial arts card. We spoke with both Jake Shields and Paul Daley on a recent media conference call.
On a cultural note, the quintessential dive bar, Yogi's, located on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, is closing its doors on Saturday, Oct. 4. This bar has become yet another victim of the growing gentrification of New York foisted upon the public by the real estate interests, the banks, and their handmaidens, the politicians.
We discuss why this bar was so important and loved, both by people in and out of the combat sports. And to put this into perspective, we speak with author Kevin Fitzpatrick, founder and editor of the New York City Bartenders and Patrons web page.
