On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman previews the Claressa Shields-Christina Hammer women's middleweight unification fight. On Saturday, April 13, the 24-year-old Shields (8-0, 2 KOs) of Flint, Michigan, USA, who holds the IBF, WBA, and WBC belts, faces the 28-year-old Hammer (24-0, 11 KOs) of Dortmund, Nordrhein-Westfalen, Germany, who holds the WBO belt and is the WBC "Champion in Recess", never having lost that belt. The winner will be recognized as the undisputed women's middleweight champion of the world. Shields has also held the IBF and WBC super middleweight belts, and is a two-time Olympic gold medalist. This fight will headline a card taking place at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, New Jersey, and will be the main event of that card televised live in the U.S. on Showtime. We spoke with both Claressa Shields and Christina Hammer at a February 26 news conference in New York. Both gave their views on what they each see as their advantages in this fight. We also spoke with Jill Diamond of the WBC and World Boxing Cares on the advancement in recent years of women's boxing. And we discussed why this is an important fight and what to expect in it with our colleague Kristal Hart, who was shooting video for her show, the Kristal Hart Show.

On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman spoke with former MMA fighter and pro wrestler Angel Amoroso. We spoke with her Sunday in New York. This is the first of a two-part interview. Angel Amoroso is one of first people I interviewed in person, sometime in the early 1990s at a time neither of us can recall. She was then performing in ECW pro wrestling, but it was not long after that both of us exited that scene. She would then continue as a mixed martial arts fighter, as well as running her own business in what is sometimes known as apartment wrestling. In part one of this interview, we discussed moving over from pro wrestling to MMA, changes in MMA over the years, the important roles played by John Perretti and Phyllis Lee in MMA, Angel's crazy experience in her 1998 MMA fight with Yumiko Hotta in L-1 in Japan, the issue of trans fighters in MMA, the devolution of today's MMA into "junior boxing", the use of MMA and martial arts techniques as self-defense, and much more, with much more to come in part two.

On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman discussed the upcoming fights with WBA welterweight champion Keith Thurman, and Bellator Heavyweight Grand Prix finalists Ryan Bader and Fedor Emelianenko. Also discussed is the latest development in the Russian state-sponsored doping scandal and how the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) is handling it. For an analysis of Saturday's Manny Pacquiao-Adrien Broner fight, make sure to read my debut article on Hannibal Boxing, called The Long Con: Manny Pacquiao and Adrien Broner. Keith Thurman (28-0, 22 KOs) returns to action Saturday, January 26, after a 22-month layoff due to injuries, against journeyman Josesito Lopez (36-7, 19 KOs), on a PBC card at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. It will be televised live in the U.S. on Fox and in Spanish on Fox Deportes, and in the U.K. on ITV4. We spoke with Keith Thurman on Tuesday's media conference call. Also on Saturday, January 26, Bellator MMA has a card at The Forum in Inglewood, California, which will be shown in the U.S. live on TV on the Paramount Network and streamed on DAZN. We spoke with both heavyweight tournament finalists, the legendary Fedor Emelianenko, and current Bellator light heavyweight champion Ryan Bader, on last week's media conference call. Last not far from least, we got a question in on the WADA media conference call announcing the next steps in dealing with the Russian state-sponsored doping program.

On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman once again spoke with Raul Ramirez of the Catch Wrestling Alliance. It was just announced that they are starting a new interactive, online venture, the Catch Wrestling Alliance Academy. We spoke with him by phone Friday. "For the longest time now, people comment on our videos. They send emails. They're asking for DVDs or places that they can learn. I'm sure that's the most common thing, where someone in some remote part of the planet, they're saying, of course there's hardly any kind of martial arts instruction nearby, and they definitely love catch wrestling. So they just need the training to be more accessible," he said. "So I thought that maybe to serve the majority of people, regardless of your location, we should probably go online, but also not just put out DVDs. "We have to make this a little bit more interactive, where the students that can be learning online from videos and from PDFs that we make, but we have to put it in a format where they can also ask questions, if they have any misunderstandings, so that they can actually just get the best level of instruction without having to be present in a class. That is probably the best we really can do." So while, obviously, training in person in catch wrestling is invaluable, where that is not possible, this is "the next best thing." The first of these online interactive course is called "Catch Wrestling Fundamentals: Stand Up." Upcoming courses will include mat wrestling, controlling and restraining opponents both in sport and self-defense situations, integrating striking into wrestling and grappling, and psychological and mental aspects of sports performance. We discussed more of the details on how to access this training, who some of the instructors will be, plans for catch wrestling competition in the Los Angeles area, the growth of interest in catch wrestling in China, and much more.

On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman discussed the prospects in 2019 for a heavyweight title unification fight between WBA-IBF-WBO champ Anthony Joshua (22-0, 21 KOs) and WBC champ Deontay Wilder (40-0-1, 39 KOs), as well as a rematch between Wilder and Fury (27-0-1, 19 KOs), who fought December 1 to a highly criticized split draw decision. That fight is analyzed, options and obstacles facing all three fighters' next fights are discussed, and much more. (Photo of Wilder vs. Fury by Esther Lin/Showtime.)

On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman discussed the heavyweight title fight coming up this Saturday, December 1, between WBC heavyweight champ Deontay Wilder, with a record of 40-0 and 39 KOs, and former unified champion Tyson Fury, with a record of 27-0 and 19 KOs. This takes place at the Staples Center in Los Angeles and will be shown on Showtime pay-per-view in the U.S. and BT Sport Box Office in the U.K. and Ireland. In reality, this fight is overhyped, overrated, and overpriced. Many of these issues were explained in "The Sporting News" piece called Fury-Wilder And The Road To Undisputed Heavyweight Championship Of The World. This show will add to and update that discussion about the lack of interest in this fight.

On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman spoke Lavell Marshall. While proficient in many types of martial arts, he mainly focuses as a trainer and competitor in Shuai Jiao, the Chinese traditional style of wrestling. We spoke with him Sunday, right after a seminar he conducted in New York. There are several different styles and rulesets of Shuai Jiao, although in general it is all standup wrestling with no groundwork or par terre. Although some styles include striking and joint locks, they are all done from the from standing position. Though not well-known in the U.S., interest in Shuai Jiao is slowly starting to grow around the world. "Shuai Jiao is something that in China, it's gaining a lot of popularity, in places like Mongolia and Europe, especially in Russia," he said. "But in the West in general, especially in the USA, it's still kind of low-key. It's unknown. It's kind of behind sambo when it comes to just recognition. But it's growing in popularity and it's something I think is going to blow up in the next ten years." While Shuai Jiao is "my main style that I study and compete in," when he does compete in other competitions such as jiu-jitsu, he said he represents Shuai Jiao to show its effectiveness. We discussed the differences between combat and sport Shuai Jiao; why he decided to focus on Shuai Jiao; some of its history and development in China; how schools there are now training students in Shuai Jiao; governance and organization of the sport, including the recent establishment of one governing body in China; the need to amp up the level of competition and attract more athletes; and how the small U.S. community is divided by "politics" and the need to work together. In about two months, Lavell Marshall will be moving to China. His goals there are to train to become "one of the best there is in Shuai Jiao." That would also facilitate him helping him spread it widely in Europe and America. Getting Shuai Jiao out to the West is essential because he said that in China, many in the Shuai Jiao community don't care about showing it to the West. "if we don't spread it, it dies," he insisted. We also discussed Shuai Jiao as self-defense, especially combat Shuai Jiao; how in the U.S., Shuai Jiao needs more money, more competitions, and may require changing the existing rulesets; how already in China, some competitions are allowing the wrestlers to go to the ground; the importance of getting more exposure for Shuai Jiao by competing in multi-style events like the World Nomad Games; and much more. "Stay tuned for Shuai Jiao, because I promise you, great things are coming and it is worth it," he said.
