Boxing Ended 2018 With a Bang!!


Vasiliy Lomachenko  and Jose Pedraza ready to square off in New York City for the unified Lightweight title

By Tamera Delefave

On Saturday, December 8th, in the heart of the Christmas Season, all eleven floors at Macy’s Department Store located at Herald Square in New York City, will be adorned with a variety of gifts, colorful tapestries, and bright decorations.  Merriment, shopping, and jolly good cheer will abound in the city as if capsulized in a holiday snow globe.

While this is going on, about a block away at the Hulu Theatre at Madison Square Garden, there will be no jollies, there will be no shopping, and there will be no presents. Instead, in its place will be volleys of swift jabs, right crosses, and left hooks, with the only good cheer coming from the enthusiastic crowd assembled to watch one of the biggest lightweight battles in years. For on this date, at this time, in the midst of thousands of toasts to one’s good health, two of boxing best, Vasiliy Lomachenko and Jose Pedraza, will bravely engage in an anxiously awaited unification bout for the 135 pound title.    

Following the Heisman Trophy presentation on ESPN, the Top Rank fight card is all set to capture not only the preceding sports audience, but also the imagination and viewership of boxing fans around the globe.

Already a household name, Vasiliy Lomachenko (11-1, 9 KO’s), who hails from the Ukraine, but now resides in Oxnard, California, is a former two-time Olympic gold medalist and three-time world boxing champion, who currently holds the WBA lightweight title. Although he will be squaring off against the tough WBO lightweight king Jose Pedraza, he, nevertheless, looks to expand his trophy cabinet by adding Pedraza’s WBO belt to one of the shelves.

Pedraza, of Puerto Rico, He is far from an easy mark. Besides being the present WBO lightweight champ, he was also a former IBF junior lightweight champ, and sports an impressive ledger of 25-1 (12 KO’s). Pedraza won the WBO title by decisioning Raymundo Beltran this past August where he knocked the champion Beltran down in the eleventh round to seal the deal.

As their records indicate, both fighters are knockout punchers who make no bones about the fact they each possess dynamite in their fists.

“I am ready to fight an excellent opponent like Jose Pedraza,” said Lomachenko. My goal has always been to unify the titles, and Pedraza is standing in my way.”

This bout also represents Lomachenko’s fourth time fighting in either the big room in Madison Square Garden or at its Hulu Theatre. “There is something special about fighting in New York City and Madison Square Garden,” revealed Lomachenko who is also arguably considered the most talented amateur boxing in history with a posted record of 396-1. “The fans in New York City are true boxing fans, and I can’t wait to put on another spectacular performance for them.”

With a reach advantage of 5 ½ inches, Pedraza is just as confident as Lomachenko is. “I am grateful to have this opportunity since I didn’t get a chance to unify titles when I was champion in the junior lightweight division,” said Pedraza. “In this division, I will achieve my goal, and I will do it against one of the best boxers in the world. There will be a surprise on December 8th.”

The winner of this bout will have two of the four major boxing titles in the lightweight division, with Mikey Garcia holding the two other belts, namely the WBC and IBF titles. There has already been great interest in Lomachenko fighting Garcia, but first the Ukraine superstar has to first get past Pedraza who has no intention of leaving the bout a loser.

On the undercard will be WBO super-bantamweight champion Isaac Dogbane (20-0, 14 KO’s) defending his crown and lightweight prospect Teatime Lopez (10-0, 8 KO’s) going for his eleventh straight win.

President Donald Trump granting a posthumous pardon to boxer Jack Johnson on the advice of actor Sylvester Stallone

Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump)
Sylvester Stallone called me with the story of heavyweight boxing champion Jack Johnson. His trials and tribulations were great, his life complex and controversial. Others have looked at this over the years, most thought it would be done, but yes, I am considering a Full Pardon!
Sylvester Stallone

Sylvester Stallone

Jack Johnson, the first African-American world heavyweight boxing champion, was wrongly convicted in 1913 under the Mann Act for taking his white girlfriend across state lines for “immoral” purposes. The Mann Act purported to prevent human trafficking for the purpose of prostitution, but critics have argued it was applied inconsistently to criminalize African Americans and those with dissenting political views.

President Donald Trump

Johnson was convicted by an all-white jury in less than two hours and was imprisoned for a year. The sentence and imprisonment destroyed the boxing career of the “Galveston Giant.” He died in 1946.
According to filmmaker Ken Burns, “for more than thirteen years, Jack Johnson was the most famous and the most notorious African-American on Earth”

“While it is unfortunate that this unjust conviction was not corrected during the boxer’s lifetime, a posthumous pardon today represents the opportunity to reaffirm Jack Johnson’s substantial contributions to our society and right this historical wrong,” the letter said.

In March 2017, Sen. Cory Booker joined with McCain, King and Meeks to reintroduce a resolution urging Johnson’s pardon.
“Despite this resolution passing both chambers of Congress several times in recent years, no pardon has been issued to date,” McCain said in a statement at the time. “I hope President Trump will seize the opportunity before him to right this historical wrong and restore a great athlete’s legacy.”
Johnson captured the world heavyweight title on December 26, 1908, earning a TKO victory over the reigning world champion, Canadian Tommy Burns, in Sydney, Australia in front of 20,000 fans.  Johnson stalked and chased Burns around the world for two years and taunting him in the press for a match. 
It is believed that Burns had agreed to fight Johnson only after promoters guaranteed him $30,000. The fight lasted fourteen rounds before being stopped by the police. The the heavyweight championship was awarded to Johnson on a referee’s decision.

Jack Johnson died in 1946. His great-great niece has pressed Trump for a posthumous pardon, and Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., and former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., have been pushing Johnson’s case for years.

McCain previously told The Associated Press that Johnson “was a boxing legend and pioneer whose career and reputation were ruined by a racially charged conviction more than a century ago.”

“Johnson’s imprisonment forced him into the shadows of bigotry and prejudice, and continues to stand as a stain on our national honor,” said McCain.

John Rinaldi BOXING TWINS VIEWPOINT Alex Rinaldi

  • – Post-Fight View –

Floyd Mayweather batters Conor McGregor into submission in 10

As the circus tent was being dismantled at the T-Mobil Arena, there were some people actually trying to convince themselves that the hype of the “fight” between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor was justified. The answer was that is certainly was not.  If there was ever a big match up that was surely predicable – this one was it.

The prices of the so-called battle ranged from $500 for the cheap seats all the way to $10,000 for ringside.  In the seats in between, the  seats prices were $1,500, $2,500, $3,500, $5,000 and $7,500!

In the 20,000-seat arena, a reported crowd of 14,623 showed up.  Let us not be mislead that those in attendance were average boxing fans dropping a few weeks of their paychecks to see this extravaganza.  No, it appeared to us that many of them were comped out by the casinos, who were more than happy to see the crowd of high rollers and celebrities filter back into the casinos afterwards.  Since a large number of fans bet on the long shot McGregor, there turned out to be very few bettors at the Sports Book counters collecting any winnings.  The smart money bet turned out to be which round the bout would come to an end.  We bet a few bucks that Mayweather would stop the Irishman from Rounds 6 to 10, so we wound up with some decent winnings at 15-1 odds.

Floyd earlier remarked that he wanted to give the fans a show, and he did just that as he appeared to carry McGregor for the first five rounds, doing as little as he can to shake up his woeful opponent. Floyd even made it easier for McGregor to score by doing away with his famous lateral movement and shoulder rolls and, instead, deciding to move straight ahead against his UFC counterpart.

You can tell in the arena which fans were the actual ticket buyers, for they were the animated ones yelling “ole” to boost McGregor’s confidence throughout.

What many people forgot was that the maximum time a UFC bout goes is 25 minutes, and McGregor usually ended his bouts early with his street-fighting tactics.  Against someone as skilled as Mayweather, who can do over 25 minutes standing on his head, Conor’s punching to the back of his head was the only time the Irishman seemed in his element.

Mayweather carried his opponent as if he was lugging around a clown suitcase for the first five rounds in order to give those at home, who plunked down an exorbitant $99.99 for the Pay-Per-View telecast, their money’s worth.

Unlike in his previous 49 bouts, Floyd began this bout by lethargically coming out and allowing McGregor to unload with his scrawny arm punches that could not have dented an overripe peach. Floyd patiently took the shots, covered up or ducked little, and occasionally retaliated with a punch or two of his own.

All the while, the hapless McGregor began scoring some points, though they landed with the impact of codling moth or a soft wind.

In fact, with the exception of one uppercut that Conor landed, there was never any time where McGregor’s blows appeared to be any more bothersome than that of an annoying mosquito or a chilly draft. By Round 3, McGregor was already breathing heavy and the steam of his punches was as hot as an iceburg. In the fourth and fifth frames, the Irishman’s punches had as much snap as a rusty spring.

After five rounds, McGregor went from being the “It” clown to a sad Emmett Kelly type one as he began to get battered with blistering punches, the power of which he never experienced in the octagon ring from the former barroom brawlers now fighting as MMA stars.

The ringmaster Mayweather should have grabbed the microphone at the end of Round 5 and announce to the audience that the drama is now going to start as drum rolls played far off in the distance, like an Indian battle call.  But since this was a circus masquerading as a fight, Floyd probably did not want to appear too obvious that he may have been pulling off the biggest con job of all time.

In the sixth, Floyd started opening up with his fists and letting his opponent know that this was indeed a boxing match against a true and tried professional and not one of those UFC farces fighting the likes of moonlighting firemen and part time cab drivers.

From then on, McGregor’s energy dissipated as Mayweather’s punch rate accelerated. Soon it was apparent that McGregor’s once rising star was falling down to earth quicker than an old satellite.

In the ninth round, Conor’s punches were a complete joke. It reminded us at times during a circus performance when a clown goes to the audience to throw a bucket of water at the crowd, only to reveal that it is simply a pail containing confetti.  That was the same with the Irishman’s punches. They landed with the impact of a pail full of confetti. When he threw them they lacked any pop or power. It was as if he was waving a ostrich feather  at Floyd.

Like the seasoned veteran he is, Mayweather knowing the time was ripe to bring the curtain down, quickly buckled the Irishman’s knees on more than a few occasions with jarring blows to his bearded face. McGregor must have thought he was struck by hydrogen bombs compared to the shots that are usually dished out to him in MMA.

Surprisingly, McGregor did bravely stand up to Floyd’s firepower, but the Irishman was sadly entering the beginning of his end and and waving goodbye forever the end of his beginning where he must have blindly thought he had a chance of winning the bout.

The tenth saw McGregor retreat awkwardly and weakly to the ropes, where he offered as little resistance as the French in World War II. Seeing this,  Mayweather gladly waded in and punched and pounded McGregor’s face in until referee Robert Byrd came in to end the show.

“I thought it was close and I thought it was a bit of an early stoppage. I was just a little fatigued,” said the deluded McGregor who did not realize that the tent had just come crashing down on him. Hopefully, he will understand someday that he was never ever in Mayweather’s league as a fighter or a drawing card.

At the time of the bout’s end, Mayweather was ahead by scores of 87-83, 89-82 and 89-81. Even by coasting, Floyd was having little trouble winning.

Afterwards, Mayweather, who was guaranteed $100 million to McGregor’s $30 million (although after the PPV  revenue comes in, Floyd will earn over $200 million and Conor would pocket over $100 million), remarked with mock sincerity, “He [McGregor] was a lot better than I thought. But I was the better man. I guaranteed everybody that this would not go the distance. Boxing’s reputation was on the line.”

The only truth to his comment was that boxing’s reputation in this fiasco WAS certainly on the line.  The UFC and the other mixed martial arts organizations and fans have been tricked into thinking of the fallacy that their sport was superior to boxing. So it was important that Mayweather had to make the point that the UFC and their sort are not in the same league as the great sport of boxing. The UFC is strictly the bush and minor leagues compared the big leagues of professional boxing.

This is especially true when one considers the fact that a 40-year-old Mayweather, a fighter well past his prime, was able to easily dismantle the UFC’s best fighter in the history of their sport who happens to be presently in the prime of his career.

Though Conor McGregor was a clown and huckster, thankfully he never proved to be a magician. As a result, he could not pull any gloved rabbits out of his hat to pull off the victory.

As for Mayweather, he will add nearly a quarter billion to his already Fort Knox bank account after competing in the easiest fight of his career.

As an aside, McGregor was contemplating returning to the UFC, but maybe he should instead consider joining the cast of “Circus 1903” where he can entertain the audience as the merry-andrew and jester much the same as he did in this predictable spectacle.

For those who thought they were witnessing a real-life “Rocky” wound up being ripped off by “The Sting” instead.

  • – Pre-Fight View –


After the last performance of the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus was registered into the history books this past spring, it appeared that the final curtain had finally fallen down upon the legendary Circus. In fact, circuses, as a whole, seemed as dead as the television ratings for the sport of golf since the decline of Tiger Woods.

We both thought the same until we found ourselves walking down the Boulevard in Las Vegas today. To our surprise, we found that in “Sin City” the big top is actually still alive and flourishing. For instance, at the Paris Resort Hotel, “Circus 1903” is presently wowing the audience with thrilling acts of Yesteryear, mixed in with puppet elephants and other like attractions.

If that did not not leave you with the feeling of sawdust underneath your feet, in comes an even bigger circus to add to the fun – the Mayweather vs. McGregor “fight” that features Floyd Mayweather taking on the duties as Promoter, Ringmaster and Star. Just as in “Circus 1903” where puppets take the place of real elephants, Conor McGregor is the puppet here masquerading as a real boxer that has a genuine chance of winning the fight. In fact, the elephant puppets look more authentic as real elephants than McGregor does as a real fighter, much less one that has any chance of capturing a victory in the bout.

For within moments of the sound of the opening bell, McGregor, like in “Circus 1903”,  will appear more like a puppet lion – one with a loud roar, but no bite. As for Floyd, he will take over the duties of a lion tamer, but instead of facing the king of the jungle in front of him, he will be handling a declawed and defanged “beast” in the squared circle, or in this case, the center ring.

McGregor wearing his fancy tailored suits and talking a lot of trash is nothing but a trumped up sideshow opponent, with the brashness of an Irish Innkeeper and the boxing acumen of a medieval marionette.

He is a paper tiger if there ever was one.

McGregor has simply no chance of winning the bout unless Floyd Mayweather turns a hundred years old when he enters the ring – covered in rust like a an old warship. This is unlikely and quite improbable.

UFC pundits claim that McGregor fists are like the Hammer of Thor, filled with powers beyond most mortals. Maybe against UFC and MMA featherweight opponents, whose sole form of defense consists of blocking blows with their chins and noses, then slamming their knees into their adversary’s midsection, McGregor looks to have dynamite in his hands.  Against Mayweather these same fists with appear more like feather nets better made for catching butterflies than hurting a professional fighter and ring legend like Floyd Mayweather.

In reality, the only semblance McGregor has to Thor with his Hammer is that both are comic book characters.

McGregor may be a fine MMA fighter and a credit to his heritage and sport – but he is no boxer or a prizefighter. He would need the powers of the sorcerer Merlin along with every Gypsy curse ever known to man to survive the bout, much less compete on a competitive level.

Not surprisingly, he will be exposed like the Wizard of Oz was when the curtain unveiled him to be nothing more than a Kansas vaudevillian.

Frankly, McGregor does not deserve to be in the same ring as Floyd Mayweather. He has accomplished virtually nothing in his career to warrant this challenge or the payday attached to it. To his credit, he has sold this fight like a true promoter and generated unbelievable interest in what will turn out to be a tragic mismatch. In the end, however, history will show that McGregor was nothing more than a carnival huckster and barker reeling in the crowd to watch chickens dance in a ring, while underneath stood a candle heating up the canvas where they stood.

While chomping down on their bag of peanuts, the audience will soon notice that the circus has turned into a bullfight between a crafty matador and an inept bull with all the gore that goes with it.

Unless Mayweather shows the compassion of a Saint Augustine, the Christian Saint of Mercy, McGregor will not be around standing to hear the bell ring for round three. They will take him out on a stretcher weaved from the same cloth as his fancy suits.

The legendary promoter P.T. Barnum is credited with coining the term, “There is a sucker born every minute!” Come tonight, the two of us will be watching the birth of a lot of suckers as Mayweather pockets over $200-$300 million by fighting a rank amateur. McGregor, on the other hand, is playing the part of Bailey to Floyd’s Barnum, as he is set to earn approximately $100 million for the spectacle, which is about a hundred times more than his last paycheck in the overrated UFC.

Tonight, the real P.T. Barnum will chuckling in his grave as Floyd pulls off the biggest Superfight of all time!

Besides providing fight coverage from all over the globe, The USA Boxing News also has an Editorial that “Pulls No Punches” called The Boxing Twins Viewpoint and in each issue has a Time Tunnel feature that takes its readers back in time and places them in a ringside seat at a historical and famous fight. The USA Boxing News also has Boxing Newsreel section that provides up to the minute fights news, fight gossip, and fight happenings from all over the world. Another interesting and original  feature is the Hitting The Road with Jack travel log,  as Hall of Fame writer Jack Obermayer provides special, unique stories of his travels throughout the United States, including fight coverage, along with tales of diners and dives that make small and large fight cards from off the beaten path Wyoming towns to big American Cities magically come to life to the delight and benefit of the reader.

Another one-of-a kind section is The USA Boxing News Puzzles and Comics Page. This includes Word Search, Crossword, and Ringside Quote Falls Puzzles, along with boxing comics that offer a new and exciting page for the true and informed boxing fan.USABN collage 3

Boxing Historian, Author, and Hall of Famer,  Bert Sugar once said of The USA Boxing News, “They demonstrate an enthusiasm for the sport that has not been seen in a boxing publication in a long time. The USA Boxing News has become what the Police Gazette was over 100 years ago – namely the most informative, original, and entertaining boxing publication of its generation.”

If you are a real boxing fan – The USA Boxing News is the publication you cannot live without.

This goes for boxing fans and to fighters and champions as well.  Recently,  former two-time boxing champion Bobby Czyz commented that, “All things considered, The USA Boxing News stands alone as the greatest boxing publication on the newsstands today.”

More champions, trainers, cut men, judges, cornermen, and promoters read The USA Boxing News than any other boxing publication, thereby making it one of the top sports periodicals in the world!
