The undefeated Mayweather (36-0, 24 KOs), who is ranked atop most boxing journalists' mythical pound-for-pound lists, was in New York for a news conference held at the Tavern on the Green restaurant on Central Park West. The news conference was called to announce Mayweather's next fight, which will be a title fight against the welterweight champion of the world, Carlos Baldomir (43-9-6, 13 KOs). That fight will take place Nov. 4 at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, NV, and will be shown live in the U.S. on HBO Pay-Per-View.
More interviews from that news conference are forthcoming.

When host Eddie Goldman was contacted by Eugene Robinson to be the subject of an interview for his forthcoming book on the combat sports, it was agreed that this interview would be recorded and also used on NO HOLDS BARRED. Eugene is an old colleague from the combat sports media who has also been spreading the word in some mainstream media outlets. Besides that, he has trained in the combat sports, is lead vocalist with the band Oxbow, and was on MySpace even before Eddie.
This week we bring you, in two parts, this interview.
Eugene begins by asking Eddie how he became the combat sports journalist that he now is. The discussion then delves into his background, his love of wrestling, the history of combat sports in particular and sports in general, an assessment of the current state of various combat sports, culture, politics, and, of course, philosophy. This is a special show where some very critical questions are addressed in depth, and, as usual, the analysis is NO HOLDS BARRED.

On this week's edition of SecondsOut Radio, host Eddie Goldman discusses the latest scoring controversies from this past weekend's fights between James Toney and Samuel Peter, and Clinton Woods and Glen Johnson.
As a prelude to the Oct. 7 title fight at the Allstate Arena in Rosemont, Ill., between undefeated, seven-foot tall WBA heavyweight champion Nikolai Valuev (44-0, 32 KOs) and challenger Monte Barrett (31-4, 17 KOs), a U.S. tour was organized last week both to hype this fight and to introduce Valuev to the American media. At the New York news conference, we spoke with Valuev, Barrett, and promoter Don King about this upcoming fight and how they view the heavyweight division.
