No Holds Barred: Renzo Gracie on ONE FC: Destiny of Warriors, Gracie Worlds, and Fedor 




On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman speaks with the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and MMA legend Renzo Gracie.

Renzo is currently in Malaysia as the trainer for Gregor Gracie, who is fighting Adam "Shogun" Shahir Kayoom of Phuket Top Team and American Top Team Thailand in a welterweight bout at the ONE FC: Destiny of Warriors card Saturday, June 23, at the Stadium Negara in Kuala Lumpur.

ONE FC: Destiny of Warriors will be streamed live on http://www.livesport.tv/onefc. The first four undercard fights are free of charge, with the remaining six main card fights available on pay-per-view at US$9.99. The first fight is scheduled for 8 PM Kuala Lumpur time (GMT + 8:00), which is 1 PM in London, 5 AM in San Francisco, and 8 AM in New York City.

We spoke with Renzo by Skype Friday morning (Thursday night in New York) about what to expect in the fight between Gregor Gracie and Adam Kayoom. We discussed all the fights on this card, including the main event of Renato "Babalu" Sobral vs. Tatsuya Mizuno, the welterweight fight between Roger Huerta and Zorobabel "Zoro" Moreira, and the rest of the bouts on this well-balanced and evenly-matched card.

"The good thing now, I'm not just a trainer, I'm the biggest fan of the sport," said Renzo in this interview. "There is nothing that I enjoy more than sit down and watch all those amazing kids go at it."

In addition, Renzo commented approvingly on the innovative submission-only format of the upcoming Gracie Worlds jiu-jitsu and grappling tournaments, the announcement of the retirement of MMA legend Fedor Emelianenko, and more.

No Holds Barred: Paul Johnson on Protesting Solitary Confinement of Floyd Mayweather 



On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman speaks with former boxer and long-time activist for boxers' rights, Paul Johnson.

Although based in Minnesota, Paul Johnson is now in Las Vegas, Nevada, holding a one-man protest in front of the Clark County Detention Center, where boxer Floyd Mayweather is serving a three-month sentence for domestic violence. Even though the charge for which Mayweather was convicted is only a misdemeanor, Mayweather has been placed in solitary confinement, which Paul Johnson calls "unfair and inhumane treatment."

We spoke with Paul Johnson by phone Wednesday afternoon about why he feels so strongly on this issue that he has traveled to Las Vegas to protest in front of this facility.

Paul Johnson also has long been involved in the struggle to form a boxers' union. We discussed the prospects for that, and his views on the proposal by U.S. Senator John McCain (R-AZ) to form a United States Boxing Commission (USBC) to oversee professional boxing in the U.S.

The view of Paul Johnson is that what is needed instead of a USBC is the formation of a corporation like the NFL, NBA, etc., which would involve promoters, boxers, trainers, managers, sanctioning bodies, and officials, and have collective bargaining for boxers. We thus discussed how that could occur and how likely it is to happen.

Boxer Protests Unfair Treatment of Floyd Mayweather 



FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
CONTACT: Paul Johnson

June 14, 2012

Former middleweight boxer Paul Johnson feels so strongly about the treatment of Floyd Mayweather by correction officials in Las Vegas that he left his home in Minnesota to protest in front of the Clark County Detention Center.

Mr. Johnson believes that Floyd Mayweather should serve the full three month sentence imposed by the court for domestic violence. However, the court determined that his actions were a misdemeanor and Mr. Johnson says he should be treated the same as other misdemeanor offenders. He is not. Floyd Mayweather is put in solitary confinement for 23 hours a day, which Mr. Johnson believes is unfair and inhumane treatment. His protest is designed to urge the Clark County Detention Center to find an alternative.

Correction officials in Las Vegas say that Floyd Mayweather is in solitary confinement for his own protection from other inmates in the general population. Johnson’s response is that if the Clark County Detention Center can’t facilitate Mayweather’s isolation other than solitary confinement they should transfer him to a facility which can. After all, the bird man of Alcatraz was isolated from the general population and was not put in the solitary confinement.

Johnson also says that he has been informed that inmates have died while in solitary confinement because of the conditions.

No Holds Barred: Mike Tyson, Keisha Morrisey 

On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman presents the June 18 news conference in New York featuring former world heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson, director Spike Lee, and producer James L. Nederlander to announce the opening of the show called "Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth". This one-man, autobiographical show, featuring Mike Tyson and also marking the Broadway directorial debut for Lee, will run for a limited engagement from July 31 to August 5 at the Longacre Theater in Manhattan's Theater District. At the news conference, the media present participated in an extended question-and-answer session with the speakers.

After the news conference, we spoke with our correspondent Keisha Morrisey, who has known Mike Tyson for over 25 years. We discussed whether or not this show, which premiered in Las Vegas in March but may be altered for Broadway, will actually provide the undisputed truth about the controversial life and career of Mike Tyson both inside and outside the ring.
