Undercard announced for “Mayweather VS Pacquiao”

Filed under: News — Tags: , , , — The Fight Nerd @ 1:00 PM

A full lineup of present and future boxing stars is set to entertain the MGM Grand Garden Arena crowd in pay-per-view and non-televised action before the history-making welterweight showdown between Floyd “Money” Mayweather and Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao on Saturday, May 2.

The pay-per-view undercard is topped by a pair of fights featuring two of boxing’s most talented and exciting stars as WBC Super Bantamweight World Champion Leo “El Terremoto” Santa Cruz (29-0-1, 17 KOs) faces Mexican brawler Jose Cayetano (17-3, 8 KOs) and WBO Featherweight World Champion Vasyl Lomachenko (3-1, 1 KO) takes on Puerto Rican contender Gamalier Rodriguez (25-2-3, 17 KOs).

The pay-per-view telecast will be co-produced and co-distributed by HBO Pay-Per-View® and SHOWTIME PPV® beginning at 9 p.m. ET/ 6 p.m. PT.

Exciting non-televised bouts round out the action in the arena as top undefeated prospects look to keep their perfect records intact.

The slick and undefeated Chris “Sweet” Pearson (11-0, 9 KOs) meets Said El Harrak (12-2, 7 KOs) in a 10-round middleweight bout and heavy-fisted Jesse Hart (16-0, 13 KOs) takes on fellow unbeaten Mike Jimenez (17-0, 11 KOs) in a 10-rounder or the NABO, USBA and NABF Super Middleweight titles.

An undefeated knockout artist looking to make it 10-for-10, Andrew “The Beast” Tabiti (9-0, 9 KOs) faces Anthony Caputo Smith (15-4, 10 KOs) in an eight- rounds cruiserweight match.

Kicking off the night of fights is undefeated contender Brad Solomon (24-0, 9 KOs), who’ll be opposed by Adrian Rene Granados (13-3, 9 KOs) in a 10-round super middleweight bout.

“Mayweather Promotions is looking forward to bringing some of boxing’s most exciting current and future stars to the fans on the biggest night in our sport’s history,” said Leonard Ellerbe, CEO of Mayweather Promotions. “Whether you are watching on pay-per-view or in the arena, you are in store for an electric night of fights.”

“Each undercard match could be a main event on another card,” said Hall of Fame promoter Bob Arum of Top Rank. “Fans can watch the exciting action as a warm-up to the most anticipated fight in decades.”

As previously announced, 26-year-old Santa Cruz will be making his second appearance on a Floyd Mayweather pay-per-view undercard. The fan-friendly two-division world champion has defended his super bantamweight title numerous times in impressive fashion on his way to earning a reputation as one of the most exciting fighters in the world. Born in Huetamo, Michoaca de Ocampo, Mexico but fighting out of Los Angeles, Santa Cruz won his first world title in 2012. In 2013 he won his super bantamweight title.

Fighting out of Tijuana, Baja California, Mexico, Cayetano turned pro in 2009 and sprinted to a 10-0 record before dropping a narrow split decision to Ruben Tamayo in 2011. He most recently dropped a decision to Enrique Bernache in February after defeating Dennis Contreras and Eden Marquez in his previous two starts. He hopes to make a grand impression in his U.S. debut on May 2.

Arguably the greatest amateur boxer of all-time, with two Olympic gold medals and two Amateur National Championships, 27-year-old Lomachenko has already made a great impact in the professional ranks. He won his world title with a majority decision over Gary Russell Jr. last year. Making the second defense of his 126-pound title, the fighter out of Bilhorod-Dnistrovskyi, Ukraine will be going for his third straight win overall when he battles Rodriguez.

An accomplished veteran from Bayamon, Puerto Rico, Rodriguez gets an opportunity on boxing’s biggest stage when he battles Lomachenko. The 28-year-old has not lost a fight since 2009 and has 17 consecutive victories since a technical draw in 2010. He won twice in 2014, picking up a unanimous decision victory over Orlando Cruz and a second round TKO over Martin Cardona.

Fighting out of Philadelphia, Hart was an accomplished amateur who was a 2012 U.S. Olympic alternate after earning a U.S. National Championship and a National Golden Gloves Championship. The 25-year-old will fight at the MGM Grand Garden Arena for the first time since his professional debut in 2005 when he stopped Manuel Eastman in the first round. This time, he will look to remain undefeated and catapult himself to contender status.

Undefeated and facing the biggest challenge of his career, the 27-year-old Jimenez will make his Las Vegas debut on May 2. Having already delivered a second round knockout over Kevin Engel in 2015 the fighter out of Chicago will look to impress on the biggest stage of his career against Hart.

A three-time National Golden Gloves Champion, Solomon fights out of Lafayette, Louisiana and is aiming to maintain his perfect record.. The 31-year-old picked up victories in 2014 over Eduardo Flores, Freddy Hernandez and Arman Ovsepyan. Solomon takes on the 25-year-old Granados out of Cicero, Illinois.

Mayweather vs. Pacquiao is a 12-round welterweight world championship unification bout promoted by Mayweather Promotions and Top Rank Inc., and is sponsored by Tecate con caracter, Paramount Pictures and Skydance Productions –Terminator Genisys, in theaters July 1st, Paramount Pictures & Skydance Productions present MISSION IMPOSSIBLE: ROGUE NATION, in theaters & IMAX July 31st, The Weinstein Company and the new movie Southpaw, starring Jake Gyllenhaal, in theaters everywhere July 24 and Mexico, Live it to Believe it.

There’s Only One: The Rise of Twitch.TV

Filed under: Uncategorized — The Fight Nerd @ 1:25 PM

BY SEAN EDMUNDSON

If you need a place where you can show off your gaming talents, stream your latest video game playthrough or simply need somewhere to vent you frustrations with the gaming world then look no further than Twitch.tv, the fastest growing video platform streaming service.

Every week brings new and interesting channels to the proceedings, from amateurs looking to show off their skills to all round professionals in the gaming biz taking part in some of the biggest competitions and esport tournaments. Anyone can sign up for an account and set up their very own channel and are pretty much free to stream whatever game-related content they wish. There are chat shows, speedruns, hints and tips and literally hours upon hours of great gaming goodness to enjoy.

Whilst only a very miniscule number of members and subscribers actually monetize their channels and unlike YouTube users it does seem that gamers simply want to show off their gaming and appreciate the simplicity in doing so on the ever-growing Twitch platform.

These unique broadcasters aren’t looking to earn a quick buck or over exploit their passion for gameplay; they want to share it with friends, family members and the rest of the gaming community across the globe.

But not everything is as black and white as it might seem. Let’s not forget that one of the biggest dreams for amateur gamers is to down the line become experienced and talented enough to go professional, and that is where the big bucks will start pouring in. For some gamers to stream their online experiences could simply be another stepping stone nearer to having a proper paid career within the industry. So do these players and their broadcasting exploits have ulterior motives in the long run?

The service caters for all gaming tastes whether you’re simply an all out guns blazing shoot ‘em up fan or someone who enjoys playing and watching live poker games like you can on your smartphone using the Euro Casino app. For whatever reason viewers or broadcasters use the service Twitch.tv has allowed the gaming community to congregate together and admire each other’s broadcasting output. Like a number of standard social networks and online content streaming services, Twitch gives you the ability to post and stream but more importantly follow, comment and communicate with each other in environment keeping the gaming world as connected as ever.

GLORY 21 FULL FIGHT CARD ANNOUNCED

Filed under: News — Tags: — The Fight Nerd @ 12:54 PM

glory21

GLORY, the world’s premier kickboxing league, today announced the full fight card for its first visit to San Diego as Valley View Casino Center hosts GLORY 21 on Friday, May 8. The event airs live on Spike TV at 11/10c.

GLORY’s middleweight title is on the line in the headline bout as reigning champion Artem “The Lion” Levin (50-4-1, 33 KOs) of Russia defends his belt against Canadian muay thai world champion Simon “Bad Bwoy” Marcus (42-2-1, 24 KOs). The challenger Marcus earned his title shot in April at GLORY 20 by defeating Wayne Barrett and Jason Wilnis on the same night to win the Middleweight Contender Tournament. Having met once before under muay thai rules, Marcus earned a unanimous decision nod over Levin in March of 2013.

In the co-headline bout, American karate world champion and human highlight reel Raymond “The Real Deal” Daniels (26-2, 16 KOs) squares off with veteran MMA welterweight Justin “Raw Deal” Baesman (16-7, 4 KOs in MMA) under GLORY rules.

In association with Veteran Operation Wellness (VOW), GLORY will host its second armed forces exhibition bout featuring Devin Goodale of the US Navy competing against US Marine Corps veteran Kyle Stewart at middleweight.

VOW is a Spike campaign created to inspire veterans to make the same commitment to their health and wellness that they made to their country.

Originally announced as an All-American Heavyweight Qualification Tournament, GLORY’s one-night, four-man spectacle has received a British infusion as “Chopper” Chi Lewis-Parry (5-0, 1 KO) steps in for Cody East to face American Everett “Wolverine” Sims (0-1) in the first of two semi-final match-ups. On the other side of the bracket, heavy handed Xavier “X-Man” Vigney (6-1, 6 KOs) battles Maurice “The Gorilla” Jackson (31-0, 23 KOs).

After meeting and defeating two opponents in a single night, the tournament winner will be granted entry into GLORY’s Heavyweight Contender Tournament later this year.

Middleweight Title Headline Bout: Artem Levin vs. Simon Marcus

Court Dismisses UFC’s lawsuit against NY

Filed under: News — The Fight Nerd @ 7:59 PM

Judge Kimba Wood of the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York ruled on UFC and other Plaintiffs’ claim that New York’s mixed martial arts (MMA) law is so vaguely written that reasonable people could not understand what it prohibited.

While avoiding ruling on the legality of New York’s MMA statute on technical grounds, the judge advised UFC to “consider filing new vagueness claims.” She said that the Attorney General’s “recent statements that the Ban prohibits sanctioned MMA” were made “despite [the law’s] plain language to the contrary.”

The Court’s decision confirms that New York law allows sanctioned professional MMA and that the AG is wrong in prohibiting it. UFC is a responsible corporate citizen and has chosen not to act contrary to the AG’s position, even though that position is legally unsustainable.

UFC, through the legislative process, has worked for years to have professional MMA legalized in New York, as it is in every other state in the nation. New York’s law was passed in 1997, when MMA was in its infancy and lacked the safety regulations that the UFC has introduced over the last decade.

The poorly written law, as interpreted by the State Athletic Commission, prohibits professional MMA, but allows (without State regulation) martial arts events that combine martial arts styles, like K-1 and Muay Thai. Also the law – which the AG conceded in this lawsuit does not prohibit amateur MMA – leaves amateur MMA wholly unregulated, a fact the Association Boxing Commissioners have condemned.

UFC and the Plaintiffs are considering all options, including an appeal of the decision and the Court’s suggestion that they file new claims challenging the law.

The plaintiffs are being represented in this action by Barry Friedman, the Jacob D. Fuchsberg Professor of Law at New York University School of Law, and Jamie A. Levitt of Morrison & Foerster LLP in New York.

“PowerHandz” Training Gloves Review

Filed under: Product Reviews — The Fight Nerd @ 3:11 PM

Did you know there are other sports out there besides MMA? I just learned this recently, it’s kind of confusing. They all use balls of various sizes and shapes, and you have to throw them into holes, or hit them into nets, or carry them across absurdly long distances. However, you can not kick someone in the head in these sports to take the ball away from someone else, nor can you slam them, armbar them, or do any of the fun stuff we do in MMA, but to each his own.

Today, we look at a new training tool that is meant for more of these mainstream sports, but also has some uses for the combat sports athlete. Specifically, the PowerHandz training gloves. PowerHandz are, according to their official website, “an athletic training product designed to strengthen hand and arm muscles and intensify players’ dexterity. The glove combines weight strategically placed around flex points on the top side and sheepskin leather on the palm.”

I am reviewing the “Pure Grip” glove, but they also come in the anti-grip style, which has an anti-friction material on them to make it more difficult to grip the ball, and therefore make you train harder to maintain control of the ball. There is also a version of this glove for holding golf clubs and the “extreme” one, which is meant for “extreme conditions”. The company also makes anti-grip wraps for basketballs and footballs, both priced at $20.

Screen Shot 2015-03-25 at 3.10.23 PM

The purpose of the grip glove is to enhance your ability to hold and maintain control of whatever ball you are using in your game, or holding a bat, stick or club. The palm is made from skeep skin, combined with a durable, stretchy nylon and lycra gussets to give you more flexibility as your hands move. Along the fingers and on the back of the hand, there are small pounches of iron sand to add mass and weight to the gloves. Velcro wraps around your wrists like a motorcycle glove to keep your hands nice and tight inside them.

Made for both kids and adults from sizes small to XXL, the gloves are easy to wear and use. The difference is like night and day when it comes to catching balls without them, but since this is a site that focuses on martial arts, I found some other applications for the PowerHandz gloves. For the traditional martial artist, these gloves would be good for training with weapons, like Kendo, to add more weight to your hands as well as making it easier to grip your sword (likewise for nunchuks, tonfas, bo staffs, and most other weapons).

For coaches, these gloves could be good to use on students in self-defense training, especially for breaking grips and holds. I could also see wrestlers wearing these, but not sure about BJJ or other submission grappling arts, since the iron sand finger pouches might make things more arduous in a negative way, giving an advantage to the person not wearing the gloves when it comes to escaping submissions, while making it easier for the person wearing the gloves to hold the other persons limbs.

The best use of these gloves for martial artists and combat sports athletes is general training. These are the perfect way to increase the difficulty in general exercise and crossfit routines. You can also wear these gloves underneath boxing gloves to add more weight to your hands. There are other weighted gloves that you can use when you train, but the mass is usually centered on just the back of the hand. The PowerHandz gloves have the weight spread out more evenly, which is a plus for training.

The PowerHandz gloves cost $70 for a pair in any style or size. If you are a serious ball player or into fitness, these are the gloves for you. For any sport with a ball or stick, PowerHandz are a good way to train more efficiently and play better. When it comes to martial arts, the same can be said, it just takes a little creativity.
