No Holds Barred: Renzo Gracie, Scott Coker, Vadim Finkelchtein, Joost Raimond on Fedor, M-1 and Strikeforce 

On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman continues our series of shows on the co-promotional alliance between mixed martial arts companies Strikeforce and M-1 Global, and why this is a positive development for this sport and business.

Last week, at a news conference in New York featuring top heavyweight mixed martial arts fighter Fedor Emelianenko, we once again spoke with Scott Coker, CEO of Strikeforce, about the upcoming fight between Fedor and the unbeaten Brett Rogers, and what the plans of Strikeforce are.

At that same event, we spoke with two key executives from M-1 Global, Vadim Finkelchtein, the M-1 Global president, and Joost Raimond, the M-1 Global operations manager. In quite direct terms, they explained the pyramid structure M-1 Global uses to recruit new fighters and then have the best advance to the top, how and why M-1 Global reached an agreement with Strikeforce to co-promote shows, why the negotiations for a similar agreement with UFC failed, and much more.

Later that afternoon, we spoke with the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, grappling, and mixed martial arts legend Renzo Gracie, whose New York academy Fedor was visiting. We discussed his views on Fedor and the technique he uses, what his own views and plans are in both mixed martial arts and grappling, and much more.

Meldrick Taylor, Eddie Goldman, Gumersindo Vidot on Joey Reynolds Show 

Former Olympic and world champion Meldrick Taylor, Eddie Goldman of No Holds Barred, and Gumersindo Vidot, the publicist for Meldrick Taylor, were guests on the nationally-syndicated "Joey Reynolds Show" late Monday night/early Tuesday morning, Aug. 31/Sept. 1. Eddie Goldman is also the boxing correspondent for the "Joey Reynolds Show".

In the first half of our segment, Joey Reynolds and Eddie Goldman discussed a number of topics including the continuing controversy over the decision in the August 22 Paulie Malignaggi-Juan Diaz fight, the need for a rematch, how many of the people running boxing in America are ruining it, and also the growth and role of technology, especially in the media.

We were then joined by Meldrick Taylor and Gumersindo Vidot. The discussion turned to one of the most controversial fights in boxing history, the March 17, 1990, 140-pound title unification bout between two unbeaten champions, Meldrick Taylor and Julio Cesar Chavez, in Las Vegas, NV.

As the fight headed into the 12th and final round, Meldrick Taylor was well ahead on two of the scorecards. But in the closing seconds of that round, Chavez launched a final assault that sent Taylor to the canvas. With time running out, Taylor arose at about the count of six. While Taylor was standing straight up, however, referee Richard Steele stopped the fight -- with just two seconds remaining. Chavez stayed unbeaten and unified the belts, while Taylor suffered his first defeat in a stoppage which is still hotly debated today.

Meldrick Taylor's autobiography, "Two Seconds From Glory", has also been published. It is available through his web site at http://www.meldricktaylor.com/. The Chavez-Taylor fight of March 17, 1990, can be seen on YouTube.

You can play or download our discussion here.

No Holds Barred: Paulie Malignaggi, Argenis Mendez, Joan Guzman, Lou DiBella, Lords of Boxing 

On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman begins by explaining how the lords of boxing completely blew an opportunity this past weekend to showcase a number of top fights and fighters to large audiences on free television, while another event, the UFC, was having another expensive pay-per-view. If you were one of the few to have viewed the Brian Viloria-Jesus Iribe fight, for example, you were in select company, although for now this fight is available on YouTube.

The battle for boxing to maintain whatever little credibility it has left by having a rematch between Paulie Malignaggi and Juan Diaz, in New York, and with neutral officials, continues. While the lords of boxing are trying to salvage business models based on obsolete technology, the real boxing fans are utilizing current mass technology to organize against the injustice which occurred August 22 when Diaz was awarded a lopsided unanimous decision over Malignaggi in a fight which the vast majority of observers thought that Malignaggi had comfortably won. You can now make your voice publicly heard by signing an online petition demanding a Malignaggi-Diaz rematch.

We discussed this fight, and what we can do to fight for a rematch, with Paulie Malignaggi this past Wednesday night, when he was attending the latest Broadway Boxing card at the B.B. King Blues Club & Grill in New York, where he also was a television announcer.

On this card, 23-year-old super featherweight prospect Argenis Mendez (14-1, 9 KOs) looked impressive in his first Broadway Boxing main event by scoring a fifth-round TKO over veteran Anthony Napunyi (14-7, 7 KOs). We spoke with him right after his fight, along with his training partner, unbeaten lightweight and former WBO super featherweight and super bantamweight champion Joan Guzman (29-0, 17 KOs). And we also spoke with promoter Lou DiBella about what he is doing to secure a rematch for his fighter, Paulie Malignaggi, with Juan Diaz, who is promoted by Golden Boy Promotions.
