SecondsOut Radio: Khan-Barrera Controversy, Dr. Margaret Goodman Part One 

  • SecondsOut Radio with Eddie Goldman

  • On this week's edition of SecondsOut Radio, host Eddie Goldman begins by commenting on the fifth-round technical decision victory by Amir Khan over Marco Antonio Barrera Saturday, March 14, in Manchester, England. We reflect on what this fight did and did not prove regarding Khan's technique and chin in the wake of his first-round defeat last year by then-little-known Breidis Prescott. We discuss what questions were and were not answered regarding the legendary but aging Barrera, whose performances of late cannot be analyzed without bringing up the question of whether he should retire or not. We focus on the controversial ending to this fight, which was only stopped in the fifth round due to a cut from an accidental head clash in the first round which left an open gash on Barrera's forehead. And we ask whether or not this fight, had it been held outside England, would likely have been stopped prior to the fifth round, which thus would have resulted in a no decision under the unified rules of boxing.

    Next, we begin a lengthy interview with Dr. Margaret Goodman, a neurologist and former chairman of the Medical Advisory Board of the Nevada State Athletic Commission. In the first part of this interview, the topics include why certain substances such as steroids and marijuana are dangerous to the health of fighters and are thus banned. We also discuss many other issues related to the health and safety of fighters.
