On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman wraps up 2008 and introduces 2009 by speaking with our colleague and correspondent Charles Farrell. We ring in the new year by wringing the necks of those ruining the action in the ring.
Our lengthy and hot conversation includes what is right and what is wrong with boxing, with the latter unfortunately requiring more attention than the former, especially in the U.S. The greedy, seedy, shortsighted men of the TV networks and promotional companies are given no free pass this New Year's Day, and neither should they be, any day of this or any other year. Plus, we critique the role played by many in the boxing media.
Despite the best efforts of those who are running the sport directly into the ground, there are some rising and usually overlooked young stars of boxing which all fight fans should watch. We conclude our discussion by focusing upon some of them.
