  1. Judah could dominate soon

    Brian Kenny

    News flash for everyone fighting at junior welterweight: Clear out. Bulk up, lose weight or risk a fight with Zab Judah, who was dominant in his Friday Night Fights bout July 9 on ESPN2. Judah's opponent, David Sample, was no joke. He had gone the ...

  2. Older fighters risk too much

    Brian Kenny

    It didn't hit me right away. Someone wants to pay $25 million to match Mike Tyson and George Foreman, and what's wrong with that? Tyson, his once-precision skills eroded, will be 33 by the time they fight. Foreman is 50 but was the legitimate...

  3. Hey Felix, fight De La Hoya

    Brian Kenny

    Felix Trinidad now has 10 million reasons to fight Oscar De La Hoya. If that's not enough for him -- or Don King -- he deserves the obscurity that will follow. Trinidad should take the $10 million he's been offered to fight De La Hoya. Bo...

  4. Boxing needs a czar

    Brian Kenny

    The "that's boxing" line doesn't work anymore. You can only laugh off the corruption for so long. The time to act has begun, and hopefully, it is just the beginning. Don King would wield less power if McCain's reform bill were enacted. Sen....

  5. Lewis is the true 'Real Deal'

    Brian Kenny

    Let's get right to it: Evander Holyfield is still the heavyweight champion of the world. Just like Herbie Hide. Just like Brian Nielsen. Just like Lou Savarese, Joe Bugner, and Iran Barkley. Lennox Lewis triumphed in the public's eyes, b...

  6. Welter-week a shot in the arm

    Brian Kenny

    Felix and Oscar? Hopefully, Oscar won't see it as an odd coupling. Felix Trinidad Jr., left, lands a left to Pernell Whitaker's nose in the eighth round. Right now, beyond Oscar De La Hoya-Felix Trinidad, we have Bob Arum versus Don King....

  7. Tyson's dose of reality

    Brian Kenny

    Measured against his past transgressions, this seemed relatively harmless. When it comes to Mike Tyson, there is a list of slapped parking attendants and groped night-club patrons. The latest outburst in Maryland seemed just another in a long line o...

  8. Iron Mike looks tough as steel

    Brian Kenny

    LAS VEGAS -- For a mostly cosmetic endeavor, the heavyweight weigh-in can give us significant signs of what's to come on fight night. Francois Botha will need plenty of muscle to beat Mike Tyson. Francois Botha has weighed anywhere betwee...

  9. Jones is wasting time

    Brian Kenny

    So who's next? Any of New York's Bravest around 175 pounds? Let's get something straight: One, Roy Jones Jr. is a charitable guy, and two, many New York City policemen deserve to make $400,000 in one night. Roy Jones Jr. fights Rick Frazi...

  10. 'Aged' is too old

    Brian Kenny

    If the "Battle of the Aged" does eventually go away, it'll hardly be missed. Nobody really cares, of course, but the bout is not the far-fetched relic it initially seemed to be. I'm not against either George Foreman or Larry Holmes fighting on, but ...

  11. Kinder, gentler boxing world?

    Brian Kenny

    Let's get this straight. I'm not talking about amateur bouts. I'm not talking about 4-round, 6-round or 8-round professional fights. In world championship fights, however, a boxing contest should not be terminated until one person is either unable...

  12. No Catskills connection for Tyson

    Brian Kenny

    Ten years ago, I trained alongside Mike Tyson in Catskill, N.Y. At the same time, not too far away, I watched Lou Savarese train in what is known as "The Catskills." Lou Savarese, who used to train near Mike Tyson, was impressive in knockin...

  13. 'Macho Time' is running out

    Brian Kenny

    Ken Sigurani has a 14-month old son who's shadowboxing. Hector Camacho has a 20-year old son who's 18-0. That alone tells you something. Hector Camacho, right, struggled in his victory over Ken Sigurani, sparking doubts about his future. C...

  14. 'Golden era' for welterweights

    Brian Kenny

    The three big events this past weekend should set up an interesting fall season of fights -- I think. At the very least, the "Golden Era" has arrived in the welterweight division. Now that he's battered Julio Cesar Chavez, Oscar De ...

  15. Two different stories

    Brian Kenny

    I'm usually the first to rip bogus championship matchups. When it comes to the next big two, I wonder if people blast boxing just because it's fashionable. Oscar De La Hoya and Evander Holyfield are taking hits for their opponents this week, but don'...
