“Cousins from Different Cultures” on TheSweetScience.com 

Do fans of “Star Trek” also watch “Stargate”? Do those who crave McDonald’s hamburgers also like hot dogs? Do Elvis aficionados listen to Johnny Cash, or Charlie Parker lovers to John Coltrane?

One would think that there is a substantial crossover within these groups. But in the combat sports, it ain’t necessarily so.

In my column this week on TheSweetScience.com, I examine some of the aspects of the rocky relationship, or even absence of any relationship, between the worlds of boxing and mixed martial arts. Interviewed is a man who knows both of these worlds very well, Larry Hazzard Sr., commissioner of the New Jersey Athletic Control Board, which regulates both of these sports in that state. We talked about this last Saturday in Atlantic City, at the debut show of a new mixed martial arts league, the International Fight League (IFL).

The piece is called “Cousins from Different Cultures”.

Check it out and leave some comments.
