Look: Anthony Davis is Beefing Up In Off-season Training

It’s apparently not enough that Anthony Davis is honing his three-point shot this summer. He’s Hulking up as well. Per Jim Eichenhofer of Pelicans.com (h/t Bleacher Report), Davis, who is listed at 220 pounds, has packed on 12 pounds of muscle this offseason. And Eichenhofer posted the pictures to prove it: Through diet/lifting, Anthony Davis […]

When Prizefighting Borrows From Pro Wrestling: Shane Mosley vs. Ricardo Mayorga

As everybody expected, the final press conference for this weekend’s PPV rematch between Shane Mosley and Ricardo Mayorga featured the compulsory scuffle and shoving match. For those who missed it, Mosley’s wife, for some strange reason, decided to stand directly in front of Mayorga and then bend over. Mayorga gave her a pat on the […]

Petition to Keep Vick Off Steelers Tops 15,000 Names

It’s 2015 and people still aren’t willing to forgive Mike Vick for his previous transgressions. Even though he has served his time, approaching a decade ago, people cannot forgive and forget. Well, at least not the people in Pittsburgh who have started a petition to keep Vick off the Steelers given his recent visit with […]

Verlander Loses No-Hit Bid in Ninth Inning

Justin Verlander has two no-hitters to his credit in his career and flirted with a third this evening vs. the Angels. It’s one thing to lose a no-hitter and it’s another thing entirely to lose one in the ninth inning. Heartbreaking. He had to settle for a complete game shutout. Justin Verlander lost a bid […]

Mike Vick to Meet with Steelers

There are quite a few big names from yesteryear still on the free agent market. Michael Vick tops that list. If he finds a team, he definitely won’t be a starter, but he would be a more than serviceable backup at this stage in his career. Might that be the case for him and the […]

John Thompson and Liam Smith to Meet for the Vacant WBO Belt

Earlier this week, the announcements went out that John Thompson (17-1, 6 KOs) and Liam Smith (20-0-1, 10 KOs) will meet for the vacant WBO junior middleweight title on October 10 in Manchester, England.

Report: Lakers Interested in Bringing Back Metta World Peace

A very familiar face could be headed back to the NBA. Metta World Peace has been spending most of his time overseas, playing in China and Italy over the past two seasons. The last time we saw him play in the NBA was with the New York Knicks in 2014, during which he averaged 4.8 […]

Abner Mares vs. Leo Santa Cruz Highlights the Excitement at Featherweight

While there is no world title on the line when Abner Mares and Leo Santa Cruz face off this Saturday night in Los Angeles, this fight is extremely relevant for the top of the featherweight division. The WBC “Diamond” belt will be up for grabs, so this matchup has the feel of being an eliminator […]

J.R. Smith Announces He Is Returning to the Cavaliers

The J.R. Smith era will continue in Cleveland. Smith has been twisting in the wind after opting out of the last year of his previous deal, leaving roughly $6.4 million on the table. Though there have been reports that he’s fielded lucrative offers from other teams while also keeping in contact with the Cavaliers, the […]

Exciting Boxing Documentary in the Works on Kickstarter

Boxing has always been a natural subject for the movies, whether as fiction or documentary. The natural drama of two athletes putting everything on the line to compete head-to-head creates compelling conflict. Beyond that, the preparation a prizefighter goes through to become ready for battle perfectly mirrors the mythic archetype of the hero’s quest. Every […]

Panthers’ Kelvin Benjamin Suffers Torn ACL

As if the wide receiver situation couldn’t get any worse in Carolina, the Panthers were dealt a devastating blow today. Kelvin Benjamin will be sidelined for the entire 2015 season with a torn ACL. He was one of the few bright spots last year, putting up an impressive rookie campaign but now the options will […]

Phillies Trade Chase Utley to Dodgers

Chase Utley has been one of the key faces of the recent Philadelphia Phillies core, but age has caught up to him. The 36 year old is not what he used to be, but was a tremendous player in his day. Deciding that they’ve gotten all they can get out of Utley, the Phillies have […]

Fan Follows Steph Curry For 30 Miles Seeking Autograph

Fan is short for fanatic and we sometimes lose sight of that. The NBA boasts the league with the most recognizable individual players, and that’s not really arguable. This can be good and bad, however. In the case of Steph Curry, this was less than desirable, as a car apparently followed him and his family […]

Tim Duncan Should Win The Nicest Opponent Ever Award

So we’ve already established that Tim Duncan is super generous by NBA standards. But, as it turns out, his friendliness extends to his opponents. Duncan won the Twyman-Stokes Teammate of the Year Award on Wednesday, a distinction that recognizes preeminent leaders, serial selflessness and phenomenal mentors And, from a San Antonio Spurs perspective, it’s easy […]

5 Star SG Terrance “2K” Ferguson Signs With New Coach Avery Johnson At Alabama

Longtime veteran NBA point guard Avery Johnson, who won an NBA Title with the San Antonio Spurs in 1999, and new head coach of the Alabama Crimson Tide has made his first big splash in recruiting, luring electric shooting guard Terrence Ferguson to commit to the Tide for the ’16-’17 season. The 6-foot-7 wing that […]

Sullivan Barrera Calls Out Jean Pascal

In a press release issued last week by Round One Media, undefeated light heavyweight contender Sullivan Barrera called out former champion Jean Pascal. “Pascal, I’m waiting for you, papa. Glove up,” the release quotes Barrera as saying. Barrera also makes reference to Pascal’s hotly disputed unanimous decision victory on July 25 over Barrera’s fellow Cuban, […]

Eli Manning Wants to be the Highest Paid QB in the League

Not only is Eli Manning the only QB to beat Tom Brady in a Super Bowl, but he has done it twice. He probably doesn’t get the credit he deserves and being Peyton Manning’s younger brother doesn’t help either. But don’t tell Eli that. He feels as if he should be the highest paid QB […]

CC Sabathia Nearly Involved in Toronto Street Fight

The Yankees were in Toronto for a set against the Blue Jays and CC Sabathia went out for a night on the town. Following his departure from a nightclub, Sabathia found himself nearly getting involved in a street fight of sorts. He doesn’t appear to have gotten injured, but he was definitely in the throws […]

Jadaveon Clowney Returns to Practice

Jadaveon Clowney’s career has gotten off to a rough start. Injuries have had him in street clothes more so than a Texans uniform thus far. And he also underwent the dreaded microfracture knee surgery. But he’s back on the field practicing at least. Only time will tell if he’s still the player he was in […]

On This Day in Boxing History: Sam Langford Defeated Jack Blackburn

On this date in 1905, Sam Langford defeated Jack Blackburn by decision in Leiperville Pennsylvania, in a meeting between two of the legends of the early gloved era.
