On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman spoke with heavyweight boxers Deontay Wilder and Eric Molina. Wilder (33-0, 32 KOs), who holds the WBC heavyweight belt, will face the huge underdog Molina (23-2, 17 KOs) in Birmingham, Alabama, headlining a card which will be televised live in the U.S. on Showtime.

We spoke with Deontay Wilder and Eric Molina on a media conference call last Wednesday.

While Molina is given almost no chance of defeating Wilder and this fight has been criticized by many, we discuss why these types of fights are typical in boxing, where there is no central governing body. We also discuss the future of the heavyweight division, including the top champion Wladimir Klitschko, undefeated fighters like Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua, and what appear to be plans to develop Wilder into a major star. We also discuss the resurgence of interest in boxing this year, how several recent televised mismatches have nonetheless drawn good TV ratings in the U.S., why major premium TV networks are essentially acting as promoters, and much more.

No Holds Barred: Daniel Machado on June 14 Copa Euclydes Hatem of Catch Wrestling in Brazil 




On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman spoke with martial artist Daniel Machado.

Besides teaching Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, he is involved in what will be the first catch wrestling competition in Brazil in about a half-century, the 2015 Copa Euclydes Hatem de Catch Wrestling.

Named in honor of the legendary Euclydes "Tatu" Hatem, who was the father of Luta Livre and a successful catch wrestler, this event takes place Sunday, June 14, at the BNB Clube de Fortaleza in Fortaleza, Brazil.

We spoke with Daniel Machado by Skype Thursday.

Discussing Euclydes Hatem, who lived from 1914 to 1984 and had his most success as an athlete in the 1930s and 40s, he said he was "in 300 wars over almost 40 years of fighting. He's one of the guys that finished George Gracie, which at that time was the Gracie with a lot of victories."

Tatu, he went on, didn't get "the respect that he deserved." He was the "father" of Luta Livre. As for Tatu's competition with the Gracies, Daniel Machado noted that the Gracies "used to do catch."

He stressed: "It comes all together, jiu-jitsu and the catch as well."

We discussed the rules of this event, where you can win by pin or submission, it is best-of-three in three, three-minute rounds, there are no points, but there are judges to avoid draws. There will also be both men's and women's competition.

Re-establishing an understanding of the history of catch wrestling in Brazil is also a task being carried out by the people involved in this event. Christiano Martins Milfont has been working with Tatu's family to develop media about catch wrestling in Brazil and Tatu's role, and to popularize it.

We also discussed the plans to hold two more catch wrestling events in Brazil this year, future plans to hold international events and work toward holding a world championship, and much, much more.
