On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman spoke with IBF welterweight champion Kell Brook and unbeaten challenger Errol Spence Jr., who fight this Saturday, May 27. We also comment on this past Saturday's full day of fights, and why the David Benavidez-Rogelio "Porky" Medina fight deserved the honor of being known as the televised fight of the night. Brook (36-1, 25 KOs) and Spence (21-0, 18 KOs) face each other in the main event of a card at the Bramall Lane football stadium in Sheffield, U.K., which will be shown live in the U.K. on Sky Sports Box Office and live in the U.S. on Showtime. The winner will likely be regarded as the top fighter in the talent-rich welterweight division. We spoke with both Kell Brook and Errol Spence Jr. on a recent media conference call, in which they both promised victory. This past Saturday, May 20, there were several important fights around the world. Gervonta Davis, Gary Russell Jr., and the masterful Terence Crawford all had dominating performances to retain their respective belts. There was also a disgraceful robbery, in which Rances Barthelemy was given a gift and undeserved decision win over Kiryl Relikh, and a riot in and outside the ring following Jose Uzcategui's disqualification loss against Andre Dirrell after he hit him after the bell sounded in the eighth round and Dirrell could not continue. The high point of the night took place in the main event of a PBC card on FS1 which many may have passed up hoping that for a change HBO, which had its telecast on at the same time, would present something noteworthy. The PBC on FS1 card was headlined by what turned out to be an eight-round, non-stop battle between budding star, the 20-year-old David Benadivez, and veteran Rogelio "Porky" Medina, who many remember last year gave IBF super middleweight champ James DeGale all he could handle. For Benavidez, this was his toughest opponent yet, and in what was billed as a 168-pound title eliminator, he established himself as both a legitimate contender and a must-see fighter. We discussed why the Benavidez-Medina fight was fight of the night, the need for this fight to be replayed both on TV and online, the need for PBC to set up its own online video service showing full fights, how HBO and his promoters have completely botched the marketing and promotion of Terence Crawford, and much more.

On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman spoke with unbeaten fighters Gervonta Davis and Liam Walsh, who face each other Saturday, May 20, and discussed the current situation regarding boxing on TV in the U.S. Making the first defense of his IBF 130-pound belt, the 22-year-old Gervonta Davis (17-0, 16 KOs) hits the road to face 31-year-old British challenger Liam Walsh (21-0, 14 KOs) at London's Copper Box Arena, the site of the 2012 Olympic boxing. This fight will be shown live in the U.K. on BT Sport on BoxNation, and live in the U.S. on Showtime. We spoke with both Gervonta Davis and Liam Walsh on their recent media conference call, in which both fighters confidently but respectfully predicted victory. May 20 is a busy day for boxing, as BoxNation, Showtime, HBO, and the PBC on FS1 will also have more televised fights. We discussed the ongoing decline of HBO's boxing program, the growth of Showtime's boxing program including its schedule of international fights such as Davis-Walsh, what might happen television-wise if there is a Joshua-Klitschko rematch, and much more.

On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman once again spoke with our colleague, correspondent, and award-winning boxing writer, Charles Farrell. We spoke with him in New York Wednesday at a book party for a new book in which he is one of the featured writers, The Bittersweet Science. His contribution is an essay called "Why I Fixed Fights", and that is the topic we discussed.

On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman discusses Saturday's stinkers involving Joseph Parker vs. Raz Cojanu and Canelo Alvarez vs. Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. Also discussed is the continuing tragedy involving Prichard Colon, who remains in a coma following a televised fight on October 17, 2015, and whose family has filed a $50 million lawsuit stemming from his treatment during and after that fight. We also examine, in light of boxing's ongoing history of purposeful mismatches and tragedies, why many people still follow it.

On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman once again spoke with our colleague, correspondent, and award-winning boxing writer, Charles Farrell. He is also one of the writers featured in the new book The Bittersweet Science. Our main topic was the April 29 heavyweight title unification fight between the 27-year-old IBF champion Anthony Joshua (18-0, 18 KOs) and the 41-year-old former champion Wladimir Klitschko (64-4, 53 KOs). This fight, which is also for a vacant WBA title, takes place at the sold-out 90,000-seat Wembley Stadium in London. It will be shown live in the U.K. on Sky Sports Box Office and in Germany on RTL, with record viewership likely on each. In the U.S., Showtime will telecast it live, with HBO later showing a replay. We spoke with Charles Farrell by phone Thursday. While both of us expect Joshua to defeat Klitschko by knockout, we see this fight as having far more significance than just a heavyweight title bout. "For one thing, it establishes the next dominant heavyweight champion of the world, at a time when there really hasn't been one for a period of time," Charles Farrell said. "But maybe more importantly than that, it will serve I think as the kind of coming out party for a fighter who has all of the attributes necessary to become one of the, certainly one of the most famous fighters in history, very conceivably the highest paid fighter in history. "And a guy who if he's promoted -- he barely has to be promoted in the U.K. They're waiting for him. This is a coronation of sorts. "But this is a kind of celebrity that can easily translate worldwide. "So I think that this fight, if it goes the way most people expect that it will go, heralds not only a new heavyweight champion, a significant new heavyweight champion, but a new era in terms of money-making possibility." We discussed how the U.K. has once again become a major place for boxing; why we expect this fight to be a decisive and likely quick knockout victory for Joshua; Klitschko's awful performance in his last fight in November 2015 against Tyson Fury; how Joshua is well-schooled as a fighter and has been prepared for his role as an international superstar; potential future opponents for Joshua including WBC heavyweight champ Deontay Wilder of the U.S. and a possible huge fight between them in New York or Las Vegas; what should happen if Tyson Fury returns to fighting; why Anthony Joshua is reminiscent of Joe Louis; the parochialism of much of the American boxing media and fan base in not recognizing Joshua's full potential; and much, much more.

On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman spoke with welterweight contenders Shawn Porter and Andre Berto, and WBC 154-pound champion Jermell Charlo and challenger Charles Hatley, who fight Saturday, April 22, at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, on Showtime Championship Boxing, presented by Premier Boxing Champions. We spoke with these fighters on recent media conference calls. We also discuss the plague of fake boxing news, especially in America, which seeks to favor the dying HBO boxing shows, disparage the growing Premier Boxing Champions series, and also spread propaganda aimed at promoting some fighters, explicitly or implicitly, as "great white hopes".

On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman spoke with the unbeaten heavyweight who is the most avoided fighter in that division, Luis "King Kong" Ortiz. With a record of 27-0 and 23 KOs, his next fight will be April 22 when he faces journeyman Derric Rossy (31-12, 15 KOs) at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn as part of the card headlined by the Shawn Porter vs. Andre Berto fight. Exact TV details will be announced soon, but it will either be shown on Showtime or Showtime Extreme in the U.S. We spoke with Luis Ortiz at a press conference in New York on March 30. He had just days before signed with advisor/manager Al Haymon and was still working out his plans, although he did repeatedly challenge the various heavyweight beltholders including Anthony Joshua, Deontay Wilder, and Joseph Parker. We open with an analysis of why Luis Ortiz has been so avoided over his career including the stagnated state of the heavyweight division, how the promoters he has previously worked with have failed to market him and move him to a title fight, his sparring with MMA fighter "King" Mo Lawal, the surreal atmosphere at this New York press conference, and more.

On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman spoke with Tricia Arcaro Turton, the owner and head coach of Arcaro Boxing. A former pro and amateur boxer as well as a rugby player, the gym she now runs in Seattle, Washington, is known not only for training boxers of many ages and levels of experience, but also as a cultural center for the community. "I just tend to interact in my community. Whether it be a person on the street or the grocery store clerk or a business owner, I just tend to really enjoy people and what they do," she said by phone Friday. "And I wanted my gym to kind of be a barbershop kind of feeling. I wanted people to come here and be able to chill out and relax and be themselves, no matter what their background was, whether they were a high-level corporate person, or whether they were a struggling person just trying to make ends meet. "I felt like, boxing gyms are the place where everything's equal. You get in the ring and it doesn't matter who your dad or mom is. It's just you in there and you have to defend yourself, they have to defend themselves, and you get to push each other." Interacting with the community has meant that the gym has also held events featuring spoken-word poets, who perform their works in a boxing ring. Both the arts of poetry and boxing are interrelated, she said, since they both allow people to express themselves. In addition, these events have brought to the gym "a different group of people", thus exposing each group to the other's art. It has long been known that boxing is a metaphor for life, but again new ground is being broken here. One person who trains at the gym, Nikkita Oliver, is a political activist, teacher, and attorney, who has worked with Black Lives Matter. She has announced that she is running for mayor of Seattle representing the newly-formed Peoples Party of Seattle. Tricia Arcaro Turton is actively supporting Nikkita Oliver's campaign, which has its official mayoral launch party April 2. We also discussed how she got involved with boxing, the role of many trailblazers in women's boxing, the importance of boxing for self-defense, why "boxing is a sport that transcends all labels", boxing and the LGBTQ community, and much more. The PodOmatic Podcast Player app is available for free, both for Android at Google Play, and for iOS on the App Store.

On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman reports from Tuesday's Bellator MMA news conference at Madison Square Garden previewing the June 24 Bellator pay-per-view at MSG in New York. We also preview the main event of the Bellator 175 card, which takes place this Friday, March 31, at the Allstate Arena in Rosemont, Illinois, a rematch between "King" Mo Lawal and Quinton "Rampage" Jackson, which will also be shown live in the U.S. on Spike TV. At the news conference, we spoke with the legend, the greatest MMA fighter of all time, Fedor Emelianenko. He fights former UFC brawler Matt Mitrione in the co-main event. We spoke with the 40-year-old Fedor about this fight and his plans. Also at the news conference was Spike SVP Sports & Specials Jon Slusser. Viacom is the parent company of both Spike and Bellator, and we spoke with him about the future of both Bellator and the PBC (Premier Boxing Champions) as Spike is rebranded and repositioned next year. On the media conference call of March 22, we spoke with both "King" Mo and "Rampage" about their rematch this Friday. And we open with a commentary on the state of MMA today, its history, and this Bellator pay-per-view. (Photos by Kristal Hart.)

On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman discusses this past Thursday's Golden Boy debut show on ESPN2, the preposterous scoring in the Jason Quigley-Glen Tapia fight, the tanking number of buys for HBO boxing pay-per-views such as the March 18 Golovkin-Jacobs card, Saturday's Jorge Linares-Anthony Crolla masterpiece, the despicable state of boxing announcing in the U.S., and what appears to be likely plans for a U.S. telecast of the April 29 Anthony Joshua-Wladimir Klitschko heavyweight title unification fight in London. We also have commentary on two deaths in the past week of boxers, and the innovative role of the community-based Arcaro Boxing Gym in Seattle, Washington.
