No Holds Barred: Eddie Goldman on John McCain, MMA, and Boxing 

On this edition of No Holds Barred, we focus on discussing the article "Punch Drunk Love. How boxing explains John McCain" by Michael Crowley in The New Republic, which quotes me extensively about McCain's obsessive campaign against mixed martial arts in the 1990's. We also discuss the significance of those views of McCain for today.

In addition, we also discuss the EliteXC show on CBS this past Saturday, the monumental drop in ratings from their May 31 show, and other issues including the future of the IFL, MMA coming to New York, and the flawed pay-per-view model for combat sports.

  • SecondsOut Radio with Eddie Goldman

  • On this week's edition of SecondsOut Radio, host Eddie Goldman begins by commenting on the thrillingly brutal welterweight title battle held this past Saturday night in Las Vegas between Miguel Cotto and Antonio Margarito, won by Margarito via an 11th-round TKO.

    Next, we preview the upcoming edition of Broadway Boxing, the local New York fight series put on by promoter Lou DiBella, which will take place Wednesday, August 6, at the B.B. King Blues Club in Times Square in Manhattan.

    We speak with several fighters who will be on that card: Queens heavyweight Vinny Maddalone (29-4, 20 KOs), Irish junior middleweight James Moore (15-1, 10 KOs), and two fighters making their pro debuts, light heavyweight Will Rosinsky, who was a U.S. national amateur champion and a four-time New York Golden Gloves champion, and middleweight Phillip Jackson-Benson, who was a two-time New York Golden Gloves champion. We also speak with promoter Lou DiBella about Broadway Boxing and boxing in New York.
