  1. Garcia wins, but doesn't entertain

    Michael Woods

  4. Will Rigo run, or rumble?

    Michael Woods

    Guillermo Rigondeaux, the Cuban-born hitter who violently opened up many eyes when he had his way with Nonito Donaire at Radio City Music Hall on April 13, and made the pound-for-pound ace Donaire look a step slow all night long, doesn't show a viole...

  5. Mikey Garcia: Great fighter, impressive man

    Michael Woods

    I'm a sucker for the humble warriors -- people who you know could care for your toddler in an emergency. Promoter Bob Arum has a couple of those types. One of them, Manny Pacquiao, fights Nov. 23 in Macau. Another one, Mikey Garcia, won in Texas on S...

  10. Promoter Top Rank signs Seanie Monaghan

    Michael Woods

    He is a blue-collar brawler, nothing majestic about his fighting style. His determination may well be his biggest asset. Yes, I have seen Seanie Monaghan fight a number of times, and he didn't scream "future world champion" to me. But the more I saw ...

    Michael Woods

    I was chatting with Irishman Gary Hyde, the manager of Guillermo Rigondeaux today, during a Top Rank media gathering at Mendez Gym on E. 26th St. in NYC. Hyde asked me who my favorite fighter was and I paused, thought about it, and said, "Ya know, I ...

  16. No PED problems with Donaire-Rigo

    Michael Woods

    You could see it as a sad commentary on our times, or see the upside -- that the increasingly regular PED flaps in boxing mean the sport is actually attending to a problem that is present in all sports in which strength and stamina are prized and mon...
