No Holds Barred: Boyd Ritchie on the Revival of Catch-As-Catch-Can Wrestling 



On this audio edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman speaks with Boyd Ritchie of the International Submission Wrestling Alliance (ISWA) about the revival of catch, or catch-as-catch-can, wrestling.

The ISWA is sanctioning the CACC Southeastern Regional Championship. This event will be the first of several planned regional tournaments in catch-as-catch-can wrestling, leading up to a national championship in 2012. The CACC Southeastern Regional Championship takes place Saturday, November 12, from 2:00 PM to 6:30 PM ET, at the YMCA at 205 W. Richardson Avenue in Summerville, South Carolina, near Charleston. For those who compete in this tournament, there will be a free seminar with Kris Iatskevich of the ISWA on Sunday, November 13.

We spoke with Boyd Ritchie Thursday evening by phone about this tournament and the revival of the sport of catch-as-catch-can wrestling, which was once enormously popular in the early part of the twentieth century. We discussed the rules of this style of submission wrestling, some of the history of this sport, how the future is beginning to look very bright for it, and much more.

No Holds Barred: Bernard Hopkins, Chad Dawson, Kendall Holt, Danny Garcia, Paulie Malignaggi 




On this audio edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman previews the October 15 boxing card headlined by the light heavyweight title fight between Bernard Hopkins and Chad Dawson.

The 46-year-old Hopkins, the oldest boxer ever to win a major title, will be defending his WBC belt against the 29-year-old Dawson, a former WBC and IBF champion, at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. This card will be telecast in the U.S. HBO Pay-Per-View.

We spoke with both Bernard Hopkins and Chad Dawson on media conference calls where both fighters stated their cases as to why they will prevail in this fight. The legendary Hopkins explained what he represents to people and how he wants to be known, besides being a champion boxer. Dawson argued that he has the tools and desire to beat his older opponent, and is highly motivated for this fight.

We also explain why you should never, ever, bet against Bernard "The Executioner" Hopkins.

In addition, we also spoke with Kendall Holt and Danny Garcia, who fight in a junior welterweight bout, and Paulie Malignaggi, who faces Orlando Lora in a welterweight fight, on this show.

No Holds Barred: Coach George Hero and Midwood Wrestling Exhibition 2011 



On this audio edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman speaks with Coach George Hero, the legendary coach and founder of the Midwood High School wrestling team in Brooklyn, New York.

The 53-year-old Coach Hero will once again be wrestling this Saturday, October 15. Under NCAA rules, he will be facing NYU senior heavyweight Rudy De La Cruz in the main event of the Midwood Wrestling Exhibition 2011: Battle of the Warriors. This event takes place at the Midwood High School at Brooklyn College Campus Road Gymnasium at 2839 Bedford Avenue in Brooklyn, beginning at 11 AM. There will be a total of 12 matches held under folkstyle, freestyle, and Greco-Roman wrestling rules.

We spoke with Coach Hero Monday night by phone about this latest event, which aims to promote the sport of wrestling. We discussed his continuing participation in competition, which began at age 52 after an absence from the mat of two decades while he devoted his time to coaching wrestling. This event will also feature matches involving those he has coached and is currently coaching at Midwood, as well as many wrestlers from other schools. We discussed the ongoing efforts to promote wrestling, why this sport retains such a strong attraction to those who have ever competed in it, the need for former wrestlers to have a place to return to training and competition, and much more.
