Weekend Boxing and Wrestling Media Notes 

Boxing in Sports Illustrated

Thanks to Rich O’Brien of Sports Illustrated for the mention and plug in his latest online boxing column called Worth the weight - A calmer, gentler Toney could get jump on Rahman.

Rich will be covering Saturday’s Rahman-Toney fight in Atlantic City for the SI.com web site, while Chris Mannix will be covering it for the magazine. It’s also good to see Sports Illustrated paying more attention to a sport whose very nature had engendered some of the best sportswriting ever. We will also be there.

SecondsOut Radio and TheSweetScience.com Rahman-Toney Coverage

You can also still listen to our pre-fight interviews with both Hasim Rahman and James Toney on SecondsOut Radio. More info is here.

Plus, my latest column on TheSweetScience.com is up.

Called Waiting for the Heavyweight Message, it discusses many of the issues surrounding this fight.

And for those who cannot get to Atlantic City for the fight, it will be shown live on HBO starting at 10 PM EST. This is regular HBO, not pay$per$view. Plus, this is a free preview weekend on HBO, so you don’t even have to be an HBO subscriber to watch it.

NCAA Wrestling: Cowboys Up Again

I spoke briefly with Bob Mayeri who is in Oklahoma City for the 2006 NCAA Div. I Wrestling Championships. He reported that despite some up and downs in the regular season, the three-time defending champion Oklahoma State Cowboys have just about clinched the team title by the second day of this three-day tournament.

To find out more information about how to follow this event, check our post here.

Also, the finals will be televised live Sat., March 18, on ESPN beginning at 6:30 PM CST/7:30 PM EST, so check your local listings.

Down Goes Blogger Yet Again

Finally, there have been some technical problems with Blogger, the host of this blog.

Not everything has been displaying properly, including the links and contact information on the right-hand column. So if you are using this to contact me (and don’t run into me at my periodic sojourns to the fights, press events, and bars), e-mail me here.
