No Holds Barred: Charles Farrell on Boxing 2008 and 2009 


  • NO HOLDS BARRED on PodOmatic
  • On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman wraps up 2008 and introduces 2009 by speaking with our colleague and correspondent Charles Farrell. We ring in the new year by wringing the necks of those ruining the action in the ring.

    Our lengthy and hot conversation includes what is right and what is wrong with boxing, with the latter unfortunately requiring more attention than the former, especially in the U.S. The greedy, seedy, shortsighted men of the TV networks and promotional companies are given no free pass this New Year's Day, and neither should they be, any day of this or any other year. Plus, we critique the role played by many in the boxing media.

    Despite the best efforts of those who are running the sport directly into the ground, there are some rising and usually overlooked young stars of boxing which all fight fans should watch. We conclude our discussion by focusing upon some of them.

    No Holds Barred: Bob Carson Talks UFC and MMA 

  • NO HOLDS BARRED on PodOmatic


  • On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman speaks with our Internet radio and podcasting colleague, Bob Carson, host of Carson's Corner.

    In a lengthy conversation, we offer a highly critical analysis of the latest UFC show and UFC in general, and why and how this company, under its current ownership, is presenting a version of mixed martial arts which is a disgusting and vulgar product modeled after the fake pro "wrestling". We discuss the state of mixed martial arts and the major promotional companies in America and the world, and go after the many UFC shills in the media. We also comment on how the boxing industry has completely blown an opportunity to attract younger fans who are now watching MMA. We discuss other events and sports which are emerging, such as roller derby and XARM, which tries to combine arm wrestling with kickboxing and jiu-jitsu. And, as expected, we hold nothing back.

    SecondsOut Radio: Larry Hazzard 

  • SecondsOut Radio with Eddie Goldman


  • On this week's edition of SecondsOut Radio, host Eddie Goldman begins by commenting on why Israel Vazquez-Rafael Marquez 3 should be considered the 2008 Fight of the Year, on UFC vs. boxing, and boxing's sanctioning bodies and rankings.

    In our main interview segment, we speak with Larry Hazzard. He headed the New Jersey State Athletic Control Board for over two decades, and now is a top official with one of boxing's major sanctioning bodies, the International Boxing Federation (IBF). His title is personal assistant to IBF president Marian Muhammad, and chairman of officials' education, development, and supervision.

    In a lengthy interview, we discuss the role of the IBF and the sanctioning bodies in boxing, his many contributions to boxing over the years, what he now wants to accomplish at the IBF, and more.
