  1. New York fighters featured on Showtime

    Michael Woods

    It's sort of like that "if a tree falls in the forest and no one is around, does it make a sound" query: If a fighter engages in a Fight of the Year sort of rumble, but there are no TV cameras beaming it to people sitting on their sofas, does it real...

  11. How about Mayweather-Quillin?

    Michael Woods

    I've been mocked in the not too distant past for suggesting that Floyd Mayweather is such a ring talent that it would be wise to widen the scope of the search for future foes beyond the 147-to-154-pound region. I got whacked around like a pinata at a...
