On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman discusses the numerous cases of corruption and bad governance in the combat sports which have already cropped up in this brand new year.
Among the topics discussed are the statement by heavyweight boxer Dereck Chisora that boxing is "the most dodgy and corrupt sport in the world"; what we know about Mustafa Ameen, the so-called "mystery man" who was ringside at the controversial Lamont Peterson-Amir Khan fight; the positive doping test for Strikeforce fighter Cris "Cyborg" Santos, her excuses, and how this all once again illustrates the inadequate drug testing in the combat sports; the important steps taken by the International Olympic Committee and the Voluntary Anti-Doping Association in the battle against dope cheats; the late stoppage in the one-sided Strikeforce fight on Saturday, January 7, where "King" Mo Lawal scored a second-round TKO over Lorenz Larkin; new developments in the fight against corruption in FIFA; and much more.
