No Holds Barred on DojoRadio.com and MediaFire.com 

Reports are still coming in about No Holds Barred being unable to be played through on Podomatic, and cutting out part of the way through the show. This is a continuing problem there, which is why I am posting the show for download on these other sites, at these addresses, here at DojoRadio.com and MediaFire.com.

DojoRadio is just starting out and actually is not finished yet, but the downloads there work fine, as they do on MediaFire. If you listen through iTunes, use these sites instead, since iTunes just gets the feed from Podomatic.

    No Holds Barred: Pay-Per-View Follies, Thomas Hauser on HBO and Boxing 


  • NO HOLDS BARRED on PodOmatic


  • On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman begins by explaining, once again, how the pay-per-view business model of many boxing and mixed martial arts companies is flawed due to numerous factors, including the growth of streaming on peer-to-peer networks, the declining economy, and more. In particular, the pay-per-view model of the Affliction MMA promotion is critiqued.

    In our main interview, which was originally played on SecondsOut Radio, we spoke with the award-winning boxing writer and author, Thomas Hauser of SecondsOut.com.

    Recently he wrote a lengthy and sharp critique called "HBO: 2008", which called into question the direction being taken by HBO, the most important television network in boxing.

    That article has been widely discussed, and we continued that discussion, both about HBO and the state and future of boxing, on our show this week.

    You can listen to No Holds Barred here. Just press the play button on the player. You can also download it here or here.

    The show is in MP3 format, so may take some time to download.

    SecondsOut Radio: Dr. Margaret Goodman on Ringside Doctor Failures 

  • SecondsOut Radio with Eddie Goldman


  • On this week's edition of SecondsOut Radio, host Eddie Goldman begins by commenting on yet another woeful heavyweight title fight, this past Saturday's 11th-round knockout by IBF-WBO champ Wladimir Klitschko over Tony Thompson in Hamburg, Germany, and the state of the heavyweight division.

    The subject of the actions and inactions of ringside physicians once again came to the fore during the June 28 Humberto Soto-Francisco Lorenzo 130-pound title fight, which was held in Las Vegas, Nevada. After Lorenzo had been knocked down in the fourth round and then took a knee after a barrage of punches by Soto, he was struck in the back of the head, while still down, by Soto. The fight was over, but the ringside officials took several minutes to discuss the impact of that foul by Soto, and to decide whether to award a TKO victory to Soto or to disqualify him for the foul. While all this was going on, Lorenzo was lying on the canvas, bleeding and hurt, by legal and/or illegal blows.

    Dr. Margaret Goodman, a neurologist and former chairman of the Medical Advisory Board of the Nevada State Athletic Commission, is a long-time fighter for the health and safety of boxers. Now, she is speaking out in criticism of the failures of the ringside physicians in the Soto-Lorenzo fight, as well as in the July 5 Kendall Holt-Ricardo Torres fight, also held in Las Vegas. In the latter fight, Holt was knocked down twice in the early seconds of the first round, but rallied to knock Torres out cold, all in just 61 seconds.

    Dr. Goodman has also written an article entitled "A Barely Noticed Death" for an upcoming edition of The Ring. This piece focuses on the death on March 19 of this year of journeyman boxer Rafael Ortiz, who had last fought March 8 in the state of Washington, and the disgracefully inadequate prefight and postfight medical examinations he received.

    This week we spoke at length with Dr. Margaret Goodman about these medical failures, and what we can do to fight for fighter safety.
