On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman takes on the world, and discusses the world of combat sports, around the world.
Among the many international topics broached in this no holds barred presentation are: the latest news in the case of Swedish Olympic wrestler Ara Abrahamian against those who allegedly denied him the opportunity to wrestle for a gold medal at the 2008 Olympics; the continuing vulgarization of mixed martial arts and particularly the UFC in America; the successful title defense this past Saturday in Argentina by WBO flyweight champion Omar Narvaez; the junior middleweight fight coming up this Saturday, Sept. 27, between Shane Mosley and Ricardo Mayorga; and the Oct. 4 mixed martial arts fight between Kimbo Slice and Ken Shamrock. We also hear questions and answers with Mosley and Mayorga, and Kimbo and Shamrock, from recent media conference calls.

On this week's edition of SecondsOut Radio, host Eddie Goldman begins by explaining how, in America, to watch live televised boxing, when there is no live boxing on television, as was the case this past Saturday night. We also discuss how boxing hurts itself by not making more major fights available online.
Next, we preview two fights which will be televised live in America this coming week. On Thursday, September 25, WBO welterweight champion Paul Williams (34-1, 25 KOs) tests the waters in the middleweight division by fighting true middleweight Andy Kolle (17-1, 12 KOs). Unbeaten heavyweight Cristobal Arreola (24-0, 21 KOs) hopes to show that he is worthy of a title shot when he faces veteran Israel Garcia (19-1, 11 KOs). Both these fights will take place at the Soboba Casino in San Jacinto, Calif., and will be shown live in the U.S. on the Versus network.
