PHILIP H. ANSELMO: “JUST HUNG UP WITH EMANUEL” PT. 2 BY PHILIP H. ANSELMO I speak with Emanuel Steward, Kronk guru and trainer of heavyweight champ Wladimir Klitschko before the champ’s every fight.

BY PHILIP H. ANSELMO I’ve read just about everything concerning Manny Pacquiao over the past many months; religious rants and gay marriage opinions galore etc. etc. etc. But I’ve read little about the strategy he will employ for his upcoming bout with undefeated WBO Jr. Welterweight Champ Tim Bradley.

By Philip H. Anselmo After watching Tyson Fury’s victory over Dereck Chisora, I had to let the fight sink in a bit before writing a single blurb. I re-watched it. I listened to the normally spot-on Al Bernstein’s detailed description of the action going on before my eyes, and I…

BY PHILIP H. ANSELMO Alright. If you’ve read my writing before, this is old news, but I am (or can be) a very biased writer. I love the great sport of boxing and it’s zany characters that define it. But when professional athletes cross the line, and hurt their chosen…

BY PHILIP H. ANSELMO There is a fight of interest in the heavyweight division on the horizon that does not contain the name “Klitschko”. On July 23rd, massive Tyson Fury (14-0, 10 KO’s) will be challenging Dereck Chisora (14-0, 9 KO’s) for Chisora’s BBB of C and Commonwealth Heavyweight laurels…
