Fernando Quiles - February 12, 2024

Mike Tyson isn’t afraid to admit he often cried before his bouts began. During his prime, Tyson was the most feared heavyweight in all of boxing. What he didn’t have in size, “Iron” Mike made up for it with his speed, his agility, his timing, and of course, his punching power. While Tyson was an all-time great inside the ring, he doesn’t like that version of himself because of the problems he was causing in his life.

Fernando Quiles - February 9, 2024

The father of Teofimo Lopez wasn’t thrilled with the strategy put forth by “The Takeover’s” opponent Jamaine Ortiz. Lopez and Ortiz had a lackluster fight inside the Michelob Ultra Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada this past Thursday night. There wasn’t much offense in this one, as Ortiz was on his bicycle and Lopez couldn’t cut off the ring. This made for a bout that very few fight fans will want to remember. In the end, this one went the distance and Lopez was awarded the unanimous decision win, retaining his WBO junior welterweight gold in the process.
