Knuckles and Gloves Podcast

Latest Episodes

The year is young, but we've already had a few fights that were far better than anticipated. In fact, the words "fight of the year contender" have already been uttered. 

History is jammed full of fights that turned out way better than expected, and on this episode of the Knuckles and Gloves podcast, Patrick Connor and Aris Pina remember several of them.

If there's one thing we love on the Knuckles and Gloves podcast, it's boxing history. We couldn't help but relive a bit more early 90s heavyweight action, this time between Mike Tyson and Donovan "Razor" Ruddock. 

It was a funky time for the heavyweight division. And in the middle of all that, a post-championship Tyson battled Ruddock twice. Join us for some detailed Tyson-Ruddock action!

You wouldn't know it now, but in the late 1990s and going into 2001, "Prince" Naseem Hamed was a superstar in the U.K. and on the verge of really breaking into the U.S. boxing scene.

Then Marco Antonio Barrera happened.

On this episode of the Knuckles and Gloves podcast, Patrick Connor and Brin-Jonathan Butler remember the looming mega-stardom of Hamed and the night he ran into Barrera. 

The mid- and late-1990s brought on some hard-charging culture in the U.S., and boxing wasn't exempt. The heavyweight division went through plenty of changes throughout the 90s, until finally it seemed Riddick Bowe stood alone as likely the best around. Then the Andrew Golota fights happened in 1996. 

There were brawls in the ring, melees outside of it, fouls, historic moments and more. Two fights acted as a sort of mirror for boxing and its fans, and many couldn't turn away. 

Let's revisit the Riddick Bowe vs Andrew Golota fights!
