No Holds Barred: Andre Berto, Jan Zaveck, Pediatricians Against Youth Boxing 


On this audio edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman previews the September 3 fight between IBF welterweight champion Jan Zaveck and former WBC welterweight champion Andre Berto, and discusses the statement by Canadian and American pediatricians opposing youth and adolescent boxing.
Jan Zaveck (31-1, 18 KOs), based in Germany and born in Slovenia, will be coming to America to try to defend his IBF belt against an opponent, Andre Berto (27-1, 21 KOs), who is coming off the first loss of his professional career. This fight takes place Saturday, September 3, at the Beau Rivage Resort and Casino in Biloxi, Mississippi, and will be telecast live in the U.S. on HBO.
For the 27-year-old Berto, who lost his WBC belt to underdog Victor Ortiz in a wild fight in April, this fight against the lesser-known Zaveck is a must-win. Berto has already been involved in several action-packed fight-of-the-year candidates, and is expected to try to make a statement following his defeat by Ortiz. The 35-year-old Zaveck, who won his title against South African Isaac Hlatshwayo in South Africa in December 2009 with a third-round TKO and has successfully defended it three times, wants to make his own statement in his first fight in America.
We spoke with both Andre Berto and Jan Zaveck on a media conference call about what to expect in this fight.
We also comment on the policy statement issued this week by the Canadian Paediatric Society and the American Academy of Pediatrics entitled "Boxing participation by children and adolescents".
In this statement, published in the journal Pediatrics, these organizations "oppose boxing as a sport for children and adolescents" because of "the risk of head and facial injuries", including concussions and other neurologic injuries.
As more people and organizations are becoming aware of the health dangers caused by concussions, we examine this statement and assess what it might mean for the future of the combat sports.

No Holds Barred: Renzo Gracie on ONE FC, Roger Gracie-King Mo, and ADCC Match with Mario Sperry 


On this audio edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman speaks with Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, grappling, and MMA legend Renzo Gracie.
The next several weeks once again will see a hectic travel schedule for Renzo, as he is now in Singapore for the debut show of the ONE Fighting Championship. This MMA card takes place on Saturday, September 3, at the Singapore Indoor Stadium in Singapore, and will feature 16 fighters who are present or former world or national champions in various disciplines in the martial arts and combat sports, facing one another. Renzo will be cornering his cousin, Gregor Gracie, who fights Seok Mo Kim of Korea.
On Saturday, September 10, Renzo will be cornering another cousin, multi-time ADCC and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu world champion Roger Gracie. Roger will be fighting on a Strikeforce mixed martial arts card against former Strikeforce light heavyweight champion, "King" Mo Lawal. That card takes place at the U.S. Bank Arena, in Cincinnati, Ohio, and will be televised in the U.S. on Showtime.
Next, on September 24, Renzo returns to the mat himself at the most prestigious and important grappling event in the world, the ADCC 2011 Submission Fighting World Championships. Renzo will be facing another BJJ and grappling legend, Mario Sperry, in a superfight. This year's edition of the ADCC event will take place September 24-25 in Nottingham, England, at the Capital FM Arena. Some tickets are still available.
We spoke with Renzo Monday evening at his New York academy, the day before he was set to fly to Singapore. As always, Renzo was enthusiastic about all these events coming up, and discussed them all with us.
In addition, we open with some comments on the explosive growth of mixed martial arts in Asia, and some of the lessons that these new and young promoters can learn from the history of MMA around the world.

No Holds Barred: Kurt Angle on 2012 Olympic Wrestling Trials and New Film, Warrior 


On this audio edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman speaks with 1996 Olympic freestyle wrestling gold medalist Kurt Angle. He also has an important role playing Koba, an undefeated Russian mixed martial arts fighter, in the new dramatic film, "Warrior".

We spoke with Kurt Angle on Friday on a media conference call about his role as Koba. The character is billed as an Olympic gold medalist wrestler and a world sambo champion, thus making him a sort of combination of Kurt Angle and Fedor Emelianenko. The critically-acclaimed "Warrior" will have its theatrical release in the U.S. on September 9.

Although he is now 42 years old and has not wrestled in real competition for a decade and a half, Kurt Angle also said that he plans to return to freestyle wrestling for the 2012 U.S. Olympic Trials. That event will be held April 21 and 22, 2012, at the Carver-Hawkeye Arena in Iowa City, Iowa, on the University of Iowa campus.

We spoke with him about his plans to compete in the Olympic Trials, the growth of the popularity of wrestling in America, why he claims that he will not wrestle in any tournament prior to the Olympic Trials, and more.
