On this week's edition of NO HOLDS BARRED, host Eddie Goldman begins by discussing the reaction to last Saturday's Pride mixed martial arts card in Las Vegas, their first in the U.S.
We then speak with Ross Greenburg, the president of HBO Sports, about boxing, mixed martial arts, and the plans of HBO and their attitude to both these sports.
Next, we speak with Bernadette Robinson, the "Boxing Queen of MySpace", who was also mentioned in my column in the latest issue of TapouT Magazine. We discuss how she got involved with boxing and how she is using the enormously popular social networking site MySpace.com to help publicize what is doing on in the sweet science. Her profile on MySpace is at http://www.myspace.com/bernapril20.

On this week's edition of SecondsOut Radio, host Eddie Goldman previews the IBF heavyweight title fight between champion Wladimir Klitschko (46-3, 41 KOs) and challenger Calvin Brock (29-0, 22 KOs). This fight will take place November 11 at Madison Square Garden in New York. We spoke with both Klitschko and Brock at a recent prefight news conference at the Garden.
Besides this fight, Wladimir also discussed the recent trip he and his brother Vitali, the now-retired former WBC and WBO heavyweight champion, made to Namibia in southern Africa as ambassadors of UNESCO and the project Education for Children in Need. A portion of the tickets sales from the November 11 card will go to this worthy cause.
We also spoke with the veteran trainer Amílcar Brusa, who trained the legendary middleweight champion Carlos Monzon. Brusa is currently a trainer for the WBC welterweight champion, Carlos Baldomir (43-9-6, 13 KOs), who fights top pound-for-pound fighter Floyd Mayweather Jr. (36-0, 24 KOs) November 4 in Las Vegas, Nevada. We talked with Señor Brusa on a media teleconference call.
