Boxing GIF Spotlight: Conan O'Brien Tempts Fate While Clowning Andrew Golota

While discussing Golota's then-recent DQ loss to Riddick Bowe on low blows and another incident involving biting an opponent's neck, Conan O'Brien asks Andrew if they threw their neck and...jock area at him. This was on Late Night with Conan O'Brien in 1996. Awkward and great.

Mike Garcia VS Juan Carlos Burgos RBR/Live Update - Outcome

The fighters are in the ring.

Round 1:

Boy, does Burgos look big next to Garcia. He's flicking out jabs, trying to find his range on Mikey. Mikey is patiently letting him. Mikey lands the first good power shot, that sharp left hook. And again. Ward says he doesn't know if you can teah what Garcia does. He's talking about judging distance. Mikey is operating at a serious speed advantage from what I can tell. Those jabs and hooks are so sharp and quick. Slow round but Burgos was given something to think about. Gamboa is in the audience. Garcia round, no doubt.

Round 2:

Kellerman says he didn't really see anyone landing anything in round one. Odd. Garcia is really keeping Burgos outside of his zone with that sharp jab. Burgos lands a good right hand over the top. His first good power shot of the fight, I think. He lands another. Garcia still blocking most. Neither guy is giving any foolish shots to the other. No freebies. Garcia stunned on a counter left hook as he was stepping in with an aggressive right! Burgos round.

Round: 3:

Garcia's corner tells him he knows how to bring the pressure and to stay more active. Big right by Garcia buckles Burgos now! Burgos holds like a pro.  Burgos doing a probing jab, jab, jab, jab, jab, jab but can't find any place for a right or touch Garcia. Garcia's corner talks about pressure but he doesn't seem to want to do that. He wants to counter and he doesn't get all that much clear with Burgos' length and jab. Still a Garcia round for me, clearly having buckled Burgos. Little landing.

Round 4:

Weisfeld has Garcia up a round after three. Kellerman agrees with the score card. This is a very good outside fight. It's tactical and tense. A sense of danger from both guys but a chess game going on. Excellent left hook, straight right combo by Garcia. More probing jabs in the air by Burgos. Garcia round but Burgos' length and jab still keeping Garcia from doing what he does best in countering. Garcia round.

Round 5:

In the corner Robert Garcia tells Mikey Garcia that Burgos still has that strong left hook that he throws long and wide, and to watch out for it. Beautiful straight right lands for Mikey. Burgos lands some combinations to Garcia's gloves. Garcia starting to outmaneuver Burgos. Despite Burgos coming off so awkward so often, he is not a bad mover himself. Garcia round but very little landing here.

Round 6:

Weisfeld has Garcia well in the lead now. Garcia working that lead hand so well now, the jab and lead hook, so stiff. Garcia stalking, then jumping back when Burgos steps in, again and again. They both are very away of the other's power. Garcia round. Kovalev shown in between rounds. He's at a lot of these matches. He likes being seen when that camera comes on.

Round 7:

Burgos just can't seem to get his best on Garcia, round after round now. Still more probing with his jab in the air. He doesn't know what to do really. Garcia looks to have a lot of urgency, a lot of tense energy, but he's tempering it. I think he really wants to get a knockout but his better judgment is to still be careful. Garcia gets in several one-two's but Burgos is landing a bit as well, with Garcia getting more aggressive. Obvious Garcia round still.

Round 8:

WIDE left hook to the body from Burgos. Ref warns to keep them up. Burgos lands over top, Garcia answers harder and immediately. Mikey looking to feint Burgos a bit but decides not to follow up. He's still outmaneuvering Burgos, outpunching him and outmatching him overall. Burgos misses a combination by A MILE. Another hard one-two by Garcia. Ward talks about Garcia being relaxed. I have been thinking that he looks edgy. Here's to different view points! Garcia round, clear.

Round 9:

Burgos slings his left arm around Mikey and Garcia gets nasty trying to lay into him. He is really not having any of Burgos having success with anything, even holding. Big one-two for Garcia. Burgos looks whipped. Another, stalking ,stalking, stalking. Burgos is wearing out but using good footwork to get away. Garcia round by as clear a margin as you will get. Burgos doesn't seem to have much left.

Round 10:

The ringside doctor looks interested in Burgos. Not a good sign as we get into the late rounds here. Garcia has such a hammering jab, it's very impressive, even kept in a long fight with a longer man. Hard left hook to be body by Garcia. Garcia lands a lead left uppercut. Burgos is still moving all over the place. Neither guy seems to be fighting the fight they're best at but Garcia is a hell of a lot more effective with his switch. He gets Burgos in the corner and more measured, careful, hard power shots come down on him. Another hard one-two by Garcia. The crowd gets excited as he sustains the attack a bit. Burgos is in deep, losing the round big again.

Round 11:

They trade hard rights. Garcia blistering Burgos with hard rights again. I sense if he hooked more around Burgos' gaurd as he just did we'd have a knockout by now. A hard right to the body by Garcia. A hard left hook. Burgos fires a good one-two and follows up with some keep-off-me jabs. Another hard right by Garcia. Some audience members are booing. Stupidly. Garcia round again. But Burgos had some moments. He's not given up. But he looks to be hurting.

Round 12:

Burgos' corner asks him what is wrong. He's getting punched by a puncher. Easy answer. Good right around the gaurd that I wanted. Burgos is coming forward a bit now. He's not sharp enough to be effective with it though. Another hard one-two by Garcia. Good left hooks by Garcia. Not huge but solid. Burgos is trying but it's just not happening for him. Garcia's seeing it well ahead. Another Garcia round and Burgos stays on his feet. Rough night for him.

Weisfeld has only one round to Burgos. Which is fair enough.

Wide official UD in the books for Garcia, as expected. Another tasteful, tempered, strong performance for Mike Garcia.

HBO's Bryant Jennings VS Artur Szpilka RBR/Live Update - Outcome Achieved

Round 1:

Jennings comes out using his long, long reach to keep Szpilka at bay. AS is the aggressor early. Jennings gets Szpilka on the ropes once but Szpilka had the round.

Round 2:

A lot of pawing with the lead hand by both men. Jennings seems like he may have briefly stunned Szpilka as Szpilka is knocked back to the ropes. Jennings is starting to land power shots much more frequently. Szpilka puts a few serious body shots into the bank. Jennings landed a leaping left hook. They start to clown each other a little bit toward the bell at the end of the round. GOOD round. Looks another Jennings round to me.

Round 3:

 The ref makes Jennings' corner wipe off an excess of presumably Vaseline before they start the action again. Steve Weisfeld has it even so far. He is the unofficial scorer for the night, not Harold Lederman. Szpilka still good at slipping in those sneaky body shot uppercuts, almost a Bute-type body shot-left uppercut. Szpilka's experience might be starting to take over a bit here. Jennings seems to sense the change in momentum and let his hands go more. Jennings always has a good sense of losing a round. They're both moving quite a bit through three rounds. Szpilka round, I feel.

Round 4:

Szpilka is getting a rhythm going now. Jennings tries to trap Szpilka on the ropes but can't do it. Jennings is looking a little bit lost right now to me. Szpilka looks quite comfortable. Szpilka round, for me.

Round 5:

Weisfeld has it even through four, as do I. Szpilka's movement is making it hard for Jennings here. He isn't getting pinned down like some of Bryant's opponents when he tries to assault them on the ropes. Jennings is risking himself by coming in more forcefully with power shots. He lands a very hard left hook. Jennings is doing a lot of stalking, it's very interesting. Szpilka wants to fight off the back foot and he's good at it. Very good round with both scoring serious shots. I edge it to Szpilka, but very close.

Round 6:

Szpilka takes a few punches on the ropes trying to clown Jennings. Very strange performance from Szpilka. He gets clocked again in the corner, looking like he deliberately let his hands down. Jennings gets AS on the romes again for a few body shots, tags him hard with a right as they come off. Szpilka seems to be slowing down. AS drops his hands again. Szpilka down on a body shot! Thirty second to go! AS backs up, lands a hard counter, Jennings trying to capitalise but they tie up. Jennings goes after Szpilka who tries to keep his hands down still. WHY?! 10-8 round for By-By!

Round 7:

Jennings STORMS out for this round. AS ready to fight back but Jennings, as Andre Ward points out, seems to smell blood big time. Things slow down again. Jennings might realise that Szpilka isn't as vulnerable as he seemed and doesn't want to blow his load, so to speak. Szpilka landing with Jennings but he's no longer comfortable or in a rythm at all, I don't think. I think AS landed a pretty low blow with about a minute left. Jennings didn't react to it.  He's got AS on the ropes again. They are landing some serious leather on each other toward the end of the round. It's not a brawl exactly but they're teeing off. Szpilka lands a big straight left that knocks Jennings back to the ropes a bit, right at the end of the round. Still a Jennings round for me.

Round 8:

Jennings corner tells him he's got to be a work horse. Andre Ward says the "break down process is taking place" for Jennings. They're both firing in combination but AS looks tired. AS lets himself lean back on the ropes again and Jennings takes advantage. Szpilka again with his back to the ropes, hands dropped, trying to use his hand movement. Not smart so far. Jennings loves it when he gets a guy on the ropes. There's just so much of Szpilka dropping his hands, it's very puzzling. He's throwing though. He's throwing some big shots but Jennings takes the round again. It's away from Szpilka at this point. He needs to hurt Jennings and do it soon.

Round 9:

Nine of ten, Weisfeld has it 78-73 for Jennings. Szpilka seems to fire those straight lefts so far away that Jennings has all the time in the world to lean back with his earmuffs on and block him. Szpilka eats those straights whenever Jennings wants to step in with a lead. Szpilka fiting on Jennings gloves a lot. Jennings knocks sweat off of AS's head and the crowd reacts. They trade hard at the end of the round. Szpilka, again, dropping his hands, trying to move his head out of the way, eating some punches. Jennings round.

Round 10:

Jenkins tells Jennings in the corner they'll steal it if he doesn't stop Szpilka. Hard to believe but we've seen some awful ones. Maybe he's right to say that. Maybe not. AS starts landing some big combos at the beginning of the round. I think it's too little too late but it's hard telling in this sport. Szpilka having an excellent round through the first minute and thirty. BAM! Jennings puts Szpilka down on a big left hook just as Szpilka was trying to take it. Jennings starts knocking him around and the ref waves it off! Jennings by knockout! He doesn't let judges in! Bryant Jennings, in the final stanza gets a TKO! VERY good performance. Szpilka is ended on his feet. I don't know if that was a great stoppage or a better case for not phasing out a standing 8 but he was getting hurt, no doubt about it.

Seahawks Dominate Boxing On ESPN: Referee Bobby Howard & Audience Have Their Priorities!

In an amusing aside to the boxing news this Friday night on ESPN, in Little Creek Casino Resort, Shelton, Washington, USA, the Seattle Seahawks were more on the minds of the crowd than the boxing! Former major world titlist Rico Ramos was fighting and the audience only had eyes for American football. The referee helped. Bobby Howard gave his pre-fight referee spiel with the added flare: "You talk about honour, fight that way. Shake 'em up and get it on. Go hawks." and a big cheer erupts from the audience. This amuses and animates Joe Tessitore. Teddy Atlas seems to write it off as an attention hound moment, unimpressed. The announcer behind Howard had a very large smile on his face. During the fight, the audience's enthusiasm did not die down as they chanted "Sea-hawks! Sea-hawks! Sea-hawks!" to the California native fighters in the ring.

Fight Night Boxing Weights: A List Of Unofficial Weigh-in Weights After Rehydration

The following is a resource page for all the publicly issued "rehydration" weights of the sub-heavyweight boxing divisions. Please, bookmark for future reference. I will be updating this page with regularity. I also urge all channels broadcasting boxing to do this as HBO tends to do, when they can. It is a matter of great interest amongst boxing's most hardcore fan base and one of the things HBO gets very right. The official weigh-ins are only to ensure that boxers make their requirements for maximum weight, as opposed to actually telling what their weights are when they enter the ring. Because there can be such drastic differences in such a short period of time, this is very, very relevant to the perception of the matches, both before and after. Fans see two guys weighing in at 139 and 140 pounds, then they come in the next day, dehydrated and rehydrated, and they're 144 and 151, but you'll never know to look at their page, at this time.

*Please note, all weights are listed in pounds.

*For a list of tales of the tapes which did NOT feature their unofficial weights, please visit this list:

*Most of these come from HBO's broadcasts, with several newer listings from Showtime, as I've never seen them done for ESPN, FS1 or NBC Sports matches. Let's hope they follow suit.

*We are updating to include names hyperlinked to the fighters' Boxrec pages and showing their official weights on the left and rehydration weights on the right. Thanks for referencing our page, and to anyone who links to us. We hope we are useful to you and thank you if you are helpful to us or even interested enough in the sport to stop by.



Viktor Postol VS Lucas Matthysse - Contested at Light Welterweight

Postol: Official: 139.5 - Unofficial: 148
Matthysse: Official: 139.5 - Unofficial: 151

Humberto Soto VS Antonio Orozco - Contested at Light Welterweight: I don't know what the specifics of this billed Light Welterweight/140-pound bout were but Soto weighed in right on the limit and Orozco weighed in within a pound. This was also slightly fuzzy as HBO's TOTT had Orozco weighing 140.5 and Boxrec had him listed at 140.75.

Soto: Official: 140 - Unofficial: 154
Orozco: Official: 140.5 - Unofficial: 154


Sergey Kovalev VS Nadjib Mohammedi - Contested at Light Heavyweight

Kovalev: Official: 174.5 - Unofficial: 183.5
Mohammedi: Official: 173 - Unofficial: 180.5

Jean Pascal VS Yunieski Gonzalez - Contested at Cruiserweight, but both considered to be campaigning at light heavyweight but it's my understanding that there was a catch-weight agreement for 178 pounds.

Pascal: Official: 178 - Unofficial: 188
Gonzalez: Official: 177.5 - Unofficial: 189

Source for catch-weight agreement: ProBoxing Fans


Oscar Valdez VS Ruben Tamayo - Contested at Super Featherweight
Oscar Valdez: Official: 127.5 - Unofficial: 135.5
Ruben Tamayo: Official: 128 - Unofficial: 138

Miguel Cotto VS Daniel Geale - Contested at the Middleweight class, but limited to a catch-weight of 158 pounds, as requested by Miguel Cotto's camp.

Cotto: Official: 153.6 - Unofficial: HBO could not get Cotto's weight, which is normal for Cotto.
Geale: Official: 157 - Unofficial: 182 - This is a noteworthy gain and Jim Lampley made special note that it was with Geale's street clothes on, but obviously still massive.  Lampley guesses it's more like 175 in boxing gear but that seems a little low for the difference, to me.
Errol Spence Junior VS Phil Lo Greco - Contested technically at Light Middleweight. Spence is assumed to be a welterweight prospect though often fights just above the limit. Lo Greco is thought to be a Light Middleweight fighter, but was called on short notice (3 days). This was a PBC broadcast TOTT.

Spence: Official: 149 - Unofficial: 162
Lo Greco: Official: 152 - Unofficial: 164

Terrell Gausha VS Luis Grajeda - Contested at Light Middleweight: While Gausha came in technically at light middleweight, Grajeda was technically two pounds into the middleweight range, and is listed as a middleweight fighter.
(PBC on NBC Broadcast)
Gausha: Official: 154 - Unofficial: 169
Grajeda: Official: 156 - Unofficial: 167
Alfredo Angulo VS Delray Raines - Contested at (unknown agreement on the limit, Raines coming in at the Middleweight limit, Angulo coming in a few pounds over it)
(PBC card, NBC+NBC Sports split broadcast)

Angulo: Official: 162.2 - Unofficial: 176.4
Raines: Official: 160 - Unofficial: 172.8 

Robert Guerrero VS Aaron Martinez - Contested at Welterweight
(TOTT from PBC, on NBC)

Guerrero Official: 145.6 - Unofficial: 156

Roman Gonzalez VS Edgar Sosa - Contested at Flyweight

Gonzalez: Official: 111 - Unofficial: 124

Ali: Official: 146.75 - Unofficial: 153
Santana: Official: 146.5 - Unofficial: 167

Danny Garcia VS Lamont Peters - Contested at Welterweight, with a catch-weight limit imposed, 143 pounds, although BOTH fighters were holding major Light Welterweight titles, neither of which could be on the line, unfortunately. While Peterson held a major title at 140/Light Welterweight, Garcia was regarded to be the lineal champion of the division. The rehydration weights were said by commentator Kenny Rice to be "with clothes" so I am assuming this means in full street clothes, as opposed to how they'd be walking to the ring, shirtless, in trunks, etc.

Mike Perez VS Carlos Takam: Takam Enters An Opponent, Finishes A Contender?

Mike Perez, having become one of the heavyweight division's hottest prospects after one of its best fights late last year (and most tragic outcomes) with Magomed Abdusalamov had his first fight in the aftermath Saturday night. He reportedly said he'd donate part of his purse to the Abdusalamov family. What happened? He was set up with a man sold as "an opponent" with a nice record on paper without much substance to it. That man entered the ring and started the match seemingly as just that. A safe, lackluster opponent for what might be a mentally damaged Mike Perez is every bit what Takam seemed to me in the first part of the fight.

The first half played out with Perez controlling and stalking slowly from the outside, with wide right hooks and straight lefts. The second half of this ten-rounder is Takam waging an inside fighting war the likes of which the heavyweight division virtually never sees anymore in the upper levels and getting the better of it with strength, volume and surprisingly good skill, for what he was advertised to be. This fight ended in a draw and while I actually narrowly scored it for Takam, there was nothing controversial here, beyond your typical outcry for the underdog in a close fight from underdog blind fans.

What does this mean for the division? 

For Takam: While Perez hopefuls have calmed down, wondering if Perez is the same fighter and probably forgotten that he blows hot and cold anyway, Takam is now a player in the division, having waged this war on the glory boxing network. While not much taller than Perez, he's got the weight of a true super heavyweight and this man can fight. If not a rematch? Takam and Dereck Chisora could enter into the best inside fighting heavyweight match of 2014! Takam made a fan out of me. I would not have predicted it after the first five rounds but he did. Congratulations to him for an HBO coming out party. Getting an opportunity to shine can be a matter of luck, but actually shining is most often a matter of will. Takam willfully forced himself into the real name heavyweight ranks against the odds.

For Perez: With all the letting go of Perez's chances in the division, I'm not at all convinced that he's got anything wrong with him and think he actually put on a good fight. For the time being, I am going to rate Takam higher more than Perez lower. But I am in the minority. Many are unwilling to consider him a standout contender after Saturday night. The favourite doesn't always perform like the favourite, but it doesn't mean they aren't performing. Perez and Takam both showed an awful lot of grit in the second half of the fight. For ten-rounders, that's two very grueling matches in a row for Perez, and in only a few months' time. I say we should give the man a break and let him regroup. That said, what this means for Perez is that he goes into the category of likely Klitschko domination opponents until further notice with the fan majority. Again, I am not personally convinced that there's been a great change in him stemming from the Abdusalamov fight, and that fight alone, but I am convinced that there are contenders a plenty who have unexpectedly difficult nights after looking spectacular and many of them have gone on to become champions, some of which get there immediately afterward. Perez could be in that group.

Broadcast Quotes:

During the 6th round:

Jim Lampley: I don't see any sign whatsoever that Perez is in some way affected by the mental hangover from the Abdusalamov thing. He's got a whole different problem in front of him and that's Carlos Takam.
Roy Jones Junior: None! A Whole different problem and a whole different type of a problem because he's fighting the same fight that they want Mike Perez to fight.

Other Broadcast Notes:

*Harold Lederman's card had Takam winning it, 96-94, broken down as:
Perez Rounds: 1,2,4 &5
Takam Rounds: 3 & 6-10

*Max Kellerman saw it as many fans and two of the three judges, five rounds to five. 

*Light Heavyweight Champion Adonis Stevenson was in attendance.

*HBO gives a link to donate to Magomed Abdusalamov and his family in their very difficult struggle, in the aftermath of his medical trauma, and all the expenses and uncertainty that have followed. That link is:

*Mike Perez's ring walk/entrance music is I'm Shipping Up To Boston, by Dropkick Murphys
