Since we last spoke, 4 teams have put their name in the NCAA bracket and tonight 4 more will do the same. Their have been some upsets like Indiana State getting in over Missouri State and Wichita State; and their have been favorites like St. Mary’s and Gonzaga getting to the WCC final for what feels like the bazillionth time.
Well, here’s how it looks going into Monday.

If there are any boxing fans still left out there or you want to give boxing another chance. I suggest you tune into HBO on Saturday night for the Bantamweight title fight between Fernando Montiel and Nonito Donaire. It isn’t just for the WBC and WBO belts, but it is also for supremacy in the division.

Friday 3-Pointer Three points to consider, for Friday’s show, and/or general water cooler debate. The departure of Terps defensive coordinator Don Brown last week seemed to come and go without a lot of fanfare. In this case it would seem that Terps fans have conceded the fact that turnabout is fair play. Given [...]

As I’ve talked about in my previous posts on the sweet science, I think one of the biggest problems in the sport is the gaggle of so called champions. So it is a little ironic that I added my LBF (Lambert Boxing Federation) title to the mix in 2003. But, of course mine isn’t real so I don’t have to deal with promoters and silly rules. That makes mine better since I don’t strip fighters and haggle over fees. My brother and I picked the most deserving champs when we started and now it follows the “beat the man that beat the man, etc.” philosophy as closely as possible. Sometimes that means my champion isn’t even the guy that I think is the best in the division. but at least I have a concrete reason to call him champ. So, I am providing this ranking system for all the boxing fans out there who can’t keep track of the alphabet boys and don’t subscribe to Ring Magazine.

Today at 5 o’clock Wladimir Klitschko (52-3) fights Ruslan Chagaev (25-0-1) for what I consider to be the real heavyweight championship of the world. I think Wladimir, based on the recent history is the true heavyweight champ. Even if you don’t buy that, the fact that the holders of 3 of the 4 major belts are in this fight, should make it a big deal.

I am a huge boxing fan. I don’t particularly enjoy MMA. I am devastated by the decline of boxing. One of the biggest problems is the numerous champions in each division. With 4 or more no one can keep track. The Ring does a good job of sifting through the nonsense, but they leave too many titles vacant. So I began rating the fighters myself and now as far as I’m concerned I only recognize one champ per division

On Saturday night there is a Super Middleweight fight between undefeated Andre Ward and big-time puncher Edison Miranda. Miranda has only lost to Kelly Pavlik and Arthur Abraham, far and away the two best fighters in the middleweight division. Ward has been brought along slowly and his two biggest wins are against mediocre opposition in Jerson Ravelo and local prospect Henry Buchanan, but he has shown the skills to be a force in this division.
