Al Bernstein Becomes Al Burnstein For Teddy and Stephen (Social Media Spotlight)



ESPN's Teddy Atlas and Stephen A. Smith had another dramatic play, after ESPN nailed a mega p4p event in Vasyl Lomachenko VS Guillermo Rigondeaux. It was a play which I greatly enjoyed for its over-the-top absurdity. But the excellent Al Bernstein...not a fan of this style. At least, that is what I take away from his Twitter feed. 

Ya gotta love it.

Gym Humour: Vasyl Lomachenko Dresses For Success




In one of the best examples of gym humour I've seen recently, major Super Featherweight title holder Vasyl Lomachenko shows up as a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle. I spotted this on the Facebook channel "Only Full Fights" and had a laugh. Train seriously, dress less so.

BGB Quote Spotlight: Play it to the Bone




"Church music? It's too good for the church. Jesus was too good for the church, you ask me."

 ~Woody Harrelson as Vince Boudreau, in the rarely revisited boxing comedy Play it to the Bone (1999).


Putting together a long list of big names and a longer list of lines falling flat, it wasn't all bad. Subjectively speaking.

GIF Spotlight: BHOP Starts Push-Up Contest!







In 2011, The great Bernard Hopkins, not long after doing push-ups during the fight, decides to show again how daisy-fresh he is. This time, his opponent, Jean Pascal, refuses to make concessions and dives to the canvas in the background. In the lead-up, Hopkins taunted Pascal for being a "four-round fighter" to insult his stamina. Hopkins defeated a man 18 years' his junior that night. With respect to Pascal, he won the push-up contest too.
