Oy Vay are you going to hear it today…Sorry for my absence as of late RSR readers, but my darling Sadie (Queen of all Bagel Breakers) has had me doing Honey Do’s and if my putz worked anymore, trust me, she would have enlisted him to do some major work too.

Beibut Shumenov PISSED OFF About Recent Move by the WBA (World Bogus Association) – Breaking Boxing News
Team Shumenov believes it is worth reviewing recent history enlight of the recent announcement that WBA Super/IBF cruiserweight world champion Denis Lebedev will defend against Murat Gassiev in late November or early December in Russia: A condition for allowing Lebedev to fight IBF cruiserweight champion Victor Emilio Ramirez on May 21, 2016 was that Lebedev had to fight WBA cruiserweight world champion Beibut Shumenov within 120 days. (Lebedev hasn’t made a mandatory defense since April 10, 2015.) Shumenov has done everything to make that fight, while Lebedev has done nothing but run from his mandatory title fight. When it first became obvious in June that Lebedev was trying to avoid his mandated WBA title fight, Shumenov repeatedly requested that the WBA order a purse bid.
Desc: Demian Maia versus Carlos Condit will headline UFC on Fox 21 on August 27th at Rogers Arena in Vancouver, a clash of two former welterweight champs.
It was announced about a month ago, but it may have gotten lost in the UFC 202 shuffle: Demian Maia versus Carlos Condit will headline UFC on Fox 21 on August 27th at Rogers Arena in Vancouver. The match between a former WEC Welterweight Champion and former interim UFC Welterweight Champion and a former UFC Middleweight Championship challenger, was originally scheduled for UFC 202, but was deemed worthy of being a main event in and of itself, and got pushed back a week. Condit appears as the favorite, according to MMA betting odds, but Maia should not be ruled out offhand.
Just one month after his successful title defense against Chris Arreola on July 16, WBC world heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder (37-0, 36 KOs) is on the fast track to recovery following injuries suffered during the bout to his right hand and biceps.
Making the fourth defense of his title, Wilder dominated Arreola for eight one-sided rounds to earn his 36th stoppage victory in front of nearly 12,000 fans at the Legacy Arena, in Birmingham, AL. Wilder set out to hurt Arreola early on, staggering him in round two with a powerful straight right. Wearing him down further in the third, Wilder dropped Arreola hard in round four with a jab-straight right combination, then wobbled the challenger again as the bell sounded.

The Olympic journey for Capitol Heights, MD’s Gary Antuanne Russell is over. Earlier today, Russell lost a tough split decision to Fazliddin Gaibnazarov of Uzbekistan in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil.
Russell fought what looked like a quality first round, as he put the pressure on Gaibnazarov. However, the judges scored the first round in favor of Gaibnazarov. During the second round, Gaibnazarov began to move side-to-side to avoid Russell’s forward attack. The referee repeatedly asked the boxer from Uzbekistan to come forward and box but did not take away any points. Russell also suffered a cut over the right eye in the second.
Undefeated Mykal Fox will make his 2nd headlining appearance this Friday night when he takes on Somner Martin in a junior welterweight bout scheduled for eight rounds from the Crystal City Hilton in Crystal City, Virginia.

The 20 year-old will be making his 3rd appearance in 2016, and is coming off a six-round unanimous decision over Jose Valderrama on June 28th in Bethlehem, PA.
I know you’ve all has seen those Oscar and Grammy post shows that ask the question: Who wore it best? The “fashionistas” sit in a gaggle and compare the dress choices and styles of all the A-list celebrities as if it’s a matter of national security or it’s going to produce world peace. This has prompted me to ask the question after seeing half of the 31st Olympiad and some of the most dominant performances in history; Who dominated best?
Undefeated prospect Caleb “Sweet Hands” Plant,13-0, 10 KO’s, will square off against hard-hitting Colombian Juan De Angel ,18-4-1, 17 KO’s in a 10-round middleweight matchup that serves as the main event of Premier Boxing Champions Tuesday, August 23rd from Sands Bethlehem Events Center in Bethlehem, Pa. The 6-foot-1 Plant won the 2011 National Golden Gloves championship and turned pro in 2014. Last year, the 24-year-old picked up six victories including hard fought triumphs over Jamar Freeman,14-5-2, 7 KO’s in September and Tyrone Brunson, 23-6-1, 22 KO’s in October. Fighting out of Nashville, he began his 2016 campaign by stopping Adasat Rodriguez,13-5-2, 9 KO’s in January and delivered a fourth-round knockout of Carlos Galvan,12-5-1,11 KO’s in June. This should be a great match featuring two heavy-handed punchers with tremendous power.
Cam Newton, the Carolina Panthers quarterback, is equally talented and skillful at spewing tones of ignorance as he is in evading pass-pushers. In an interview conducted recently, his response to whether he would allow his children play football both tone-deaf as well as perilous. In his reply, Newton who has an 8-month old son named Chosen, said he would let his boy play the game without hesitation. He wondered why parents would think otherwise in allowing their kids to play football. This leaves a lot of speculation on the impact of his words on the NFL Sport-book betting if people are going to take his words at their face value.
Time to lift the over turned apple cart, and sift through the debris and stench of Andre Ward’s no show at last week’s Los Angeles press conference announcing his November 19 challenge of light heavyweight champ Sergey Kovalev. Shooting from the hip sports fans, it’s easy to take aim at Ward and his camp, and not miss the target. It’s bad enough he was hand fed a hundred to one underdog as a tune pre-quill to the fall extravaganza, but allowing it to be called a title fight for the vacated WBO title belt left a touch of audacity and an air of arrogance in its wake.
UFC, the world’s premier MMA organization, has announced its main event for UFC FIGHT NIGHT® Manila.

Danny “Swift” Garcia, 32-0, 18 KO’s is the current WBC welterweight champion, having previously held the WBA (Super), WBC, The Ring magazine and lineal light welterweight titles. According to Ring TV, Garcia has been rumored to be in the beginning stages of negotiating a fight with former three-time world champion Andre Berto, 31-4, 24 KO’s. Also, earlier this past week, Terence Crawford, current unified WBC, WBO, Ring magazine and lineal light welterweight champion, exchanged some bitter words on Twitter with the welterweight champion and talked about a possible clash between the two in the future. One thing is certain, Danny Garcia is thought of by a number of top contenders and other reigning champions as a soft and vulnerable champion. Garcia claims that he has ended other fighter’s careers; however, this seems to be an exaggeration by the champion.

The passing of Muhammad Ali brought with it the type of grief and outpouring of memories the like of which we have not seen since Nelson Mandela slipped from our grasp. It was always, I suppose, going to be thus as people gave us their recollections, unedited and without the crowning glories of spin. This was Trump telling but with a genuine filter.

Conor McGregor is in full promotional/trashtalk mode ahead of his UFC 202 fight versus Nate Diaz. McGregor had nothing nice to say to the pro-wrestling community last week which got a mighty backlash of responses from signficant people of the pro-westling community, however this week, McGregor did clarify that he has respect for the old school of pro-wrestling:
