NO HOLDS BARRED: Wade Schalles and "Wrestling 411", "Mr. Wrestling" Ali Gümüs, and the State of Wrestling 

  • NO HOLDS BARRED on PodOmatic


  • On this edition of NO HOLDS BARRED, host Eddie Goldman focuses on the precarious state of wrestling, both in the U.S. and internationally, and interviews two key people who are working to improve the sport.

    A new weekly wrestling highlight show, called "Wrestling 411", will debut Thursday, January 17, 2008, on the CSTV network in the U.S. It will also be available on the Media Sports Productions web site.

    To learn more about this important program, we spoke with Wade Schalles, a two-time NCAA wrestling champion, a champion or All-American in folkstyle, freestyle, and Greco-Roman wrestling and in sombo and judo, and a Distinguished Member of the National Wrestling Hall of Fame. Wade is now working with Media Sports Productions, and along with people including J Robinson, the head coach of the defending NCAA Div. 1 champion Minnesota Golden Gophers, is promoting this show as a way of popularizing wrestling and overcoming some of the difficulties which have hobbled this sport.

    International wrestling is also in decline, according to Ali Gümüs, the leading wrestling journalist in the world. Also known as "Mr. Wrestling" and based in Turkey, he has been an editor and writer for the Turkish publication Tercüman and is the author of numerous books on wrestling. He also serves as the chairman of the Wrestling Commission of AIPS, the International Sports Press Association.

    Ali was in New York this week, and we spoke with him about the crisis in international wrestling and what can be done about it.

    NO HOLDS BARRED: Larry Hazzard 


  • NO HOLDS BARRED on PodOmatic


  • On this edition of NO HOLDS BARRED, host Eddie Goldman speaks with Larry Hazzard, who had been the commissioner of the New Jersey State Athletic Control Board. For almost 22 years, he had headed this commission, which regulates combat sports in that state. In November 2007, however, with no warning or even any reason being given, he was dismissed from that position.

    In October 2007, his attorney, James Binns, acting on his behalf, had submitted a letter to New Jersey Governor Jon Corzine outlining a series of major charges of alleged "malfeasance" against officials on the State Athletic Control Board. No response was provided to that letter – except to fire Larry Hazzard a few short weeks later.

    Now he is fighting back. A lawsuit was filed this past Friday, Jan. 4, 2008, in the U.S. District Court of New Jersey against New Jersey state officials alleging, in essence, that he was fired for speaking up and exposing this alleged "malfeasance" on the New Jersey commission.

    Right before the fight card at Bally's Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City this past Saturday, January 5, headlined by the Paulie Malignaggi-Herman Ngoudjo bout, Larry Hazzard, along with attorneys James Binns and Sidney Gold, held a press conference. We bring you that press conference in full, plus a follow-up discussion immediately afterwards with Larry Hazzard and a few members of the media.

  • SecondsOut Radio with Eddie Goldman


  • On this week's edition of SecondsOut Radio, host Eddie Goldman reviews the IBF junior welterweight title fight between champion Paulie Malignaggi (24-1, 5 KOs) and challenger Herman Ngoudjo (16-2, 9 KOs), which was held Saturday, January 5, 2008, at Bally's Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City. In this fight, Malignaggi retained his title with a 12-round unanimous decision.

    We spoke with both Paulie Malignaggi and Herman Ngoudjo, as well as Malignaggi's promoter, Lou DiBella of DiBella Entertainment, and Ngoudjo's promoter, Yvon Michel of GYM (Groupe Yvon Michel), shortly after this fight Saturday night. We discussed their divergent views on the judges' scoring and the fight itself.

    We also spoke with former light heavyweight world champion Glen Johnson, who scored an eighth-round TKO over Hugo Pineda on the undercard, about his fight and his plans to face WBC champion Chad Dawson April 12.
