    No Holds Barred: John Perretti on Why We Watched Boxing over UFC This Weekend 

  • NO HOLDS BARRED on PodOmatic


  • On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman begins the fourth year of this show as a podcast by speaking with the legendary matchmaker, promoter, announcer, and martial artist, and our senior correspondent on this show, John Perretti.

    This past Saturday night, March 7, there were two live televised fight cards on at the same time. One was an HBO boxing card featuring a TKO victory by unbeaten, rising junior middleweight James Kirkland over Joel Julio. The other was another UFC pay-per-view.

    In a lengthy discussion, we explain why we both chose to watch the boxing over the UFC (and it was not because of the price of the pay-per-view). We discuss the training methods used by James Kirkland, who is under the tutelage of former boxer Ann Wolfe. We also discuss why, despite excellent fights and fighters, televised boxing often comes off looking so lame, tired, and old. And we touch on many more issues in both boxing and mixed martial arts, including fighter safety.

    You can play or download No Holds Barred here. You can also download No Holds Barred here. If one link does not work, please try another. The show is in MP3 format, so may take some time to download.

    The No Holds Barred theme song is called "The Heist", by musician Ian Carpenter.

    I'm not sure about this comparison between boxing, a sport, and "ufc," which is a single mma event. I realize you are saying mma is less technically sound than boxing in general, and I even understand your theory as to why this is, but why compare a single mma event to an entire sport.Could you say you'd rather watch hbo boxing over shamrock, diaz?

    "ultimate fighting" is just a marketing gimmick . It always was, no? why even take the term seriously?
