CHICAGO, June 12, 2015 — This evening’s festivities at the UIC Pavlion were unwittingly axiomatic in its selection of principals: fighting in the main event for the vacant World Boxing Association’s, the International Boxing Organization’s and the World Super Weight titles, Erislandy Lara employed a style emphasizing deft movement, minimum risk and a calculated offense, and in the co-main event, rising light heavyweight puncher Artur Beterbiev (who’s won all eight of his previous professional fights by knockout) plied an approach favoring raw, unmitigated aggression.  The former style is most famously employed by sports megastar Floyd Mayweather, Jr., whereas the latter is a lynchpin of the popularity of Gennady Golovkin, (widely regarded as the best middleweight on the planet, holding the World Boxing Association Interim World Middleweight, World Boxing Association Super Middleweight, and IBO World Middleweight titles).  Coincidentally, some say that Golovkin is on the cusp of becoming the sport’s pound-for-pound king — a status that has been widely bestowed on Mayweather in recent years.

And tonight in this, the Windy City, which worships the smash mouth football of icons like Brian Urlacher, Mike Ditka and Dick Butkus, there’s no mystery here which style is more popular. (continue reading…)

CHICAGO, December 12, 2014 — There were thrills in supporting bouts, but what promised to be a barnburner at the UIC Pavilion ended in a whimper.

Last night’s main event at the UIC Pavilion had scarcely began when a right hook from the undefeated Rau’shee Warren (12-0, 3 knockouts, 117.5 lbs.) deposited the onrushing Javier Gallo (21-10-1, 12 KO’s, 118 lbs.) into the ropes. Righting himself, Gallo resumed the chase. The combatants circled. Unfortunately, before the bout got untracked, about a minute later, their heads slammed together and, blinking, Gallo collapsed. Writhing in pain, he rolled over on his back. Some booing ensued. (continue reading…)
