No Holds Barred: Juan Manuel Lopez, Yuriorkis Gamboa, Odlanier Solis, More Boxing Self-Destruction 

On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman begins by discussing the continuing failure of the boxing establishment to provide the fans with the fights they want, and to make the videos available to them when they want and where they want. Some of the latest examples from this past weekend are the John Murray-Jon Thaxton lightweight fight in the UK, the David Tua-Shane Cameron heavyweight fight in New Zealand, and the Prizefighter heavyweight tournament in the UK won by Audley Harrison, all of which are or were available for free online, either live or on sites like YouTube. This is another hard-hitting exposition about the mess that has been dragging down boxing, especially in the U.S.

This coming Saturday, October 10, boxing returns to Madison Square Garden in New York with a card headlined by three exciting undefeated fighters. This show will be telecast on pay-per-view in the U.S.

WBO junior featherweight champion Juan Manuel Lopez (26-0, 24 KOs) of Puerto Rico fights Rogers Mtagwa (26-12-2, 18 KOs) of Tanzania and Philadelphia, who won a 2008 Fight of the Year candidate against Tomas Villas with a 10th-round TKO.

WBA featherweight champion Yuriorkis Gamboa (15-0, 13 KOs), originally from Cuba and now fighting out of Miami, and a 2004 Olympic gold medalist, takes on veteran Whyber Garcia (22-6, 15 KOs) from Panama.

Heavyweight prospect Odlanier Solis (14-0, 10 KOs), also originally from Cuba and now fighting out of Miami, and also a 2004 Olympic gold medalist, takes on former title challenger Fres Oquendo (31-5, 20 KOs).

We spoke with these three fighters, Juan Manuel Lopez, Yuriorkis Gamboa, and Odlanier Solis, at the kickoff news conference for this show at Madison Square Garden about their upcoming fights, their careers, and much more.
