NO HOLDS BARRED: BCX IV Preview, The Legend of Carlton Haselrig, David Mastrogiovanni, Mike Chapman, Bob Meyrowitz, YAMMA 1 and 2 


  • NO HOLDS BARRED on PodOmatic


  • On this edition of NO HOLDS BARRED, host Eddie Goldman begins by previewing the Battle Cage Xtreme (BCX) IV mixed martial arts show, which takes place Saturday, April 19, at the Tropicana in Atlantic City, New Jersey. The show will also be webcast live on StreamingMartialArts.com.

    The main event on this 17-fight card at BCX IV will be a bout for the BCX heavyweight title between Carlton Haselrig and IFL veteran Shane Ott.

    Carlton Haselrig is a legend in wrestling. He was the only six-time NCAA champion, winning the heavyweight titles in both Divisions I and II in 1987, 1988, and 1989, while wrestling for the University of Pittsburgh-Johnstown. He later became a Pro Bowl offensive lineman for the Pittsburgh Steelers, despite not having played college football. But substance abuse curtailed his incredible athletic career. Now, at age 42, Carlton Haselrig has another chance, as he will be fighting for a title in his mixed martial arts debut Saturday night.

    To preview this card, we spoke with BCX promoter David Mastrogiovanni about it. To learn more about Carlton Haselrig as an athlete, we spoke with Mike Chapman, the executive director of the Dan Gable International Wrestling Institute and Museum, and the top amateur wrestling historian in America.

    In addition, we followed up on the debut show last week of YAMMA Pit Fighting by speaking with promoter Bob Meyrowitz. We both reviewed that show's pros and cons, and also heard the preliminary plans for their YAMMA 2 card.

    SecondsOut Radio: Bernard Hopkins, Joe Calzaghe, Enzo Calzaghe, Naazim Richardson, Miguel Diaz on Cotto-Gomez and Margarito-Cintron 

  • SecondsOut Radio with Eddie Goldman


  • On this week's edition of SecondsOut Radio, host Eddie
    Goldman reviews the fights between Miguel Cotto and Alfonso Gomez, and Antonio Margarito and Kermit Cintron, held Saturday, April 12, in Atlantic City, New Jersey, and previews the fight which will take place this coming Saturday, April 19, between light heavyweight champion Bernard Hopkins and super middleweight champion Joe Calzaghe in Las Vegas, Nevada.

    Cotto (32-0, 26 KOs) retained his WBA welterweight title with a TKO at the end of the fifth round over Alfonso Gomez (18-4-2, 8 KOs). Antonio Margarito (36-5, 26 KOs) captured the IBF welterweight championship from Kermit Cintron (29-2, 27 KOs) with a sixth-round knockout. This was a rematch of their 2005 fight, also won by Margarito with a fifth-round TKO.

    After the fights in Atlantic City, we spoke with veteran trainer and cutman Miguel Diaz about these fights and what is next for Cotto and Margarito.

    The April 19 fight between light heavyweight champion Bernard Hopkins (48-4, 32 KOs) and super middleweight champion Joe Calzaghe (44-0, 32 KOs) will be held at light heavyweight, the first time in Calzaghe’s 15-year career that he has ventured out of the 168-pound division.

    We spoke with both of these champions, Bernard Hopkins and Joe Calzaghe, at a recent New York news conference. We also spoke with their trainers, Brother Naazim Richardson for Hopkins, and Enzo Calzaghe for his son Joe, on a media teleconference call.
