No Holds Barred: Dr. Lisa Kihl on Corruption, Gambling, Doping, and Rape in Sports, on the WAAR Room with Chris Baldwin and Malissa Smith 


 On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman once again spoke with our colleagues Chris Baldwin of Angry Afro Radio and Malissa Smith of Girlboxing on the WAAR Room. A video of this discussion has also been posted on the Angry Afro Radio YouTube page.

Our special guest was Dr. Lisa Kihl, Institute Director of the University of Minnesota's Global Institute for Responsible Sport Organizations.

This discussion took place Friday, September 17.

Corruption, doping, and rape in sports are widespread. The growth of sports gambling, both legal and illegal, also has posed another danger to the integrity of sports.

To start to address this, Dr. Kihl is advocating the formation of a "national sport integrity system". Her work at the Global Institute for Responsible Sport Organizations has a focus on "Introducing a framework conceptualizing a national sport integrity system that aims to promote and safeguard integrity within national sport organizations."

We spoke with her about the steps needed to be taken to accomplish this, how to fight the scourge of sports corruption, the role of the media, and much more.

All this is part of our in-depth coverage of the corrupt world of boxing and sports governance in general.

No Holds Barred: Triller Trash and Boxing's Devolution to Sadistic Spectacle, on the WAAR Room with Chris Baldwin and Malissa Smith 

On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman once again spoke with our colleagues Chris Baldwin of Angry Afro Radio and Malissa Smith of Girlboxing on the WAAR Room. A video of this discussion has also been posted on the Angry Afro Radio YouTube page.

Our discussion took place Sunday, September 12.

Our main topic was the Triller trash boxing show of September 11, and particularly the utter disgrace of putting 58-year-old Evander Holyfield in the main event fight. Holyfield was quickly TKO'd in the first round. We discussed boxing's devolution from the sweet science into being a sadistic spectacle like this, how these circus fights have become the dominant trend in boxing, how this is related to boxing's purposely corrupt and fragmented governance, why there must be new legislation to regulate boxing, and much more.

All this is part of our in-depth coverage of the corrupt world of boxing and sports governance in general.

Our discussion took place Sunday, September 5.

We discussed the death of 18-year-old Jeanette Zacarias Zapata, who passed this week from injuries sustained in a bout in Montreal.
