  3. Rare positivity at press conference

  9. Paul Malignaggi strikes a blow vs. obesity

    Michael Woods

    We, the media, too often treat them, the athletes, the fighters, as objects, present to entertain and amuse us, and serve as punching bags when we see fit. Sure, the payoff for success can be considerable, in acclaim, in compensation. But we, the...

  13. Yormark won't give up on getting Floyd

    Michael Woods

    Having come to know Nets and Barclays CEO Brett Yormark the tiniest bit over the past couple of years and getting a read on the man, how he operates and his drive to secure big deals, I had to assume that he didn't punch a wall when he was told that ...

    Michael Woods

    Peter Quillin -- aka "Kid Chocolate" -- has been craving mega-bouts, career-definers, for a while now. He was calling out Sergio Martinez a few years ago, and word was that he'd be gloving up, and putting his WBO middleweight crown up for grabs, ...

    Michael Woods

    Manny Pacquaio's work ethic in selling a fight, in this case his April 12 clash against Timothy Bradley, a rematch of their 2012 tangle, "won" by Bradley, has been on display recently. Pacquaio, who works as a Congressman in the Philippines when n...
