Acclaimed Journalist Jimmy Breslin Passes

This is as saddening to me as Ali’s passing…. Each in his own way was as unique an individual who did so much to change the world view. With both of their passings I feel a huge part of my youth & life has come to a point that makes me realize how much I was influenced by both & how much lesser my life will be w them gone.

Today’s Millenniums have no clue or care about the people who sacrificed so much to make our lives better & how much they struggled to make what was such an injustice better today. (continue reading…)

Hayward, California’s Aaron Coley (14-1-1, 6 KOs) defeated Dashon Johnson (22-21-3, 7 KOs) on Saturday night at the Emerald Queen Casino in Tacoma, Washington, out-working the more experienced journeyman over ten rounds in the middleweight main event of Brian Halquist Productions’ Battle at the Boat 110.

Coley, a southpaw, employed a cautious approach early, working behind his right jab and feinting with his left, seemingly trying to bait his opponent into opening himself up for a counter. Coley slowly started to pick up his output in the second round, finding his comfort level and letting his hand go a bit more often. Coley took clear control of the range and pace of the fight in the third and maintained it through the fourth, working at a distance with a steady stream of jabs, keeping Johnson on the outside and on the end of his punches, unable to get in close enough to do any real damage.  (continue reading…)

Let me begin by saying that I am a fan of GGG’s and that I picked him to win the fight on Saturday versus Danny Jacobs. I am a fan of Danny’s as well on a personal and a professional level. Great person, very good fighter and an inspiration to many, many people due to his overcoming Cancer. Physically and stylistically he was sure to present the biggest puzzle of GGG’s career but ultimately I had to figure that Golovkin would win out due to supreme punching power, constant mental and physical pressure and uncanny punch placement.

Avoiding all that GGG generally brings to the table for a full 12 rounds seemed an unlikely task. (continue reading…)
