Peña vs. Munoz Munoz came into this fight as the overwhelming underdog. This was in part due to the incredible height advantage Peña held over him as …

A Conversation with the Great Michael Culbert

Michael Culbert

Just last month, the boxing world lost a true icon, “Marvelous” Marvin Hagler. While Hagler will always be remembered as one of the fiercest middleweights of his era and a man whose approach to the sport exemplified everything to be desired in a fighter, there’s an aspect of his legacy that’s often overlooked. He hailed from Brockton, MA, a city of less than 100,000 located less than an hour from Boston. Over the years, the city has produced great talent …

Israel Adesanya must determine the next move of his career

Israel Adesanya

As a child, the worst part of freezing cold Chicago winters was the fact that we were stuck in the house. Unable to go to the courts to shoot hoops or even ride our bikes outside, my brother Marcus and I instead chose to pass time by playing hand after hand of Gin Rummy. One day when school was canceled due to a blizzard, my mother gave us each a dollar before she headed out the door to work. She …

The world wants to see Canelo Alvarez fight Caleb Plant

Canelo Alvarez Vs Caleb Plant

My seventeen-year-old nephew “Bug” recently sent me a link to the movie trailer for “Godzilla vs. Kong,” scheduled to premiere this year. Even as a grown man in his 30’s I must admit seeing those two mythical creatures fight was exciting. The anticipation my nephew Bug has waiting for the release of a big-budget action flick is the same feeling I’ll have whenever Caleb Plant vs. Canelo Alvarez is announced. Each man performed admirably in his most recent bout; Alvarez …

Jon Jones is UFC’s next transcendent star

Jon Jones

Every sport needs a transcendent athlete like Jon Jones. He’s the guy who casual fans name if a street reporter requests the name of a participant. If asked to name their favorite footballer, those who don’t follow the sport will almost always answer with Cristiano Ronaldo. Ask someone who’s never watched Wimbledon name their favorite tennis player and they’re sure to reply with Rafael Nadal or Serena Williams. For a long time, mixed martial arts’ transcendent athlete was Conor McGregor. …

Edgar Berlanga is 2020’s Fighter of The Year

Edgar Berlanga

A Look at Edgar Berlanga I was in elementary school when Steven Spielberg offered the world his adaptation of Michael Crichton’s novel, Jurassic Park. I desperately wanted to see the film during the opening weekend because I didn’t want to be the only kid in the neighborhood who hadn’t seen it. This was 1993 and the commercials we’d been seeing on television left us in awe and anticipation. Unfortunately, my older cousin was getting married in Miami that weekend, so …

Floyd Mayweather should not go through with his circus bout against Logan Paul

Floyd Mayweather

LL Cool J once said that the secret to longevity is reinvention. As a rapper of historical importance who transformed into a well-known actor, he’s certainly qualified to speak on the topic. Over the years, we’ve seen other celebrities reinvent themselves and go on to have a prosperous “second act.” Singer Sonny Bono had a promising musical career in the 1970s that saw him paired with the legendary Cher. He later became a politician and was elected Mayor of Palm …
