Boxer kisses Boxer!


Boxer kisses her opponent during very intimate faceoff


Boxing faceoffs are all about mind games. Fighters try to look intimidating, they talk trash, and they get up in each other’s grills all in the name of mind games.
Swedish professional boxer Mikaela Laurén took the theatrics to a whole other place during a press conference on Monday when she stood toe-to-toe with undefeated champion Cecilia Braekhus.
As cameras clicked away, Lauren approached Braekhus, stared deeply into her eyes and planted a kiss on her lips. At first, Braekhus reacted in horror and half slapped, half pushed Laurén away. But Braekhus soon started laughing at the absurdity of it all.
“I haven’t got that in a while,” Braekhus joked as Lauren exited stage left.


Thirty-six-year-old welterweight Braekhus (31-0) is the pound-for-pound queen of Norwegian boxing and currently holds the female WBA, WBC, IBF, and WBO titles. She will fight 41-year-old Laurén (29-4) in Norway on Oct. 21.

Severn vs Shamrock 3: Who Cares?

Dan Severn responds to Ken Shamrock: ‘Am I gonna stick around forever for a turd like him?’
Dan Severn still wants to fight Ken Shamrock but doesn’t see it happening. by Nick Baldwin at bloodyelbow.com
Dan Severn and Ken Shamrock both want to fight each other, but it seems the bout probably won’t happen. If you ask Shamrock why, he will tell you he is about to have his knee replaced, and any sort of competition is out of the picture for now. If you ask Severn why, it’s because Shamrock is full of excuses. Severn and Shamrock were scheduled to meet for the third time at UR Fight 1 in March 2016 — nearly 20 years after their rematch at UFC 9. But just over a week before the event, Shamrock was forced off the card. He first cited an injury as the cause for the bout cancellation. In reality, he was suspended 90 days by the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation (TDLR) after testing positive for a steroid and an opioid in a drug test related to his Bellator 149 loss to…

Jack Swagger to MMA: Will He Succeed?

Jack Swagger to MMA:  Will He Succeed?
By:  Mad Dog Gil Guillory 
Excerpts from article by Jonathan Snowden who covers combat sports for Bleacher Report.

Jack Swagger/Jake Hager can still remember the roar of the crowd, more than 80,000 strong, when he challenged Alberto Del Rio for the WWE championship at WrestleMania 29. As Jack Swagger, he had polarized the WWE audience with his strong anti-immigration views, employing the catchphrase "we the people" and eventually ending up in a brief online feud with political commentator Glenn Beck.         

Unfortunately for Hager, that was back in 2013 and, in the world of wrestling, four years might as well be an eon. He'd spent most of his time since in seemingly pointless feuds or, worse in his mind, aimlessly drifting on WWE's B-programming, present but not taking part.

It was time for something new. But what? While trading wins back and forth on the deep undercard (Jack Swagger compiled a record of 63-62 in 2016, according to…

Bullet Club sold 400,000 shirts? WTF!?

The Bullet Club claim they have sold over 400,000 t-shirtsBy Tommy Messanoon November 30, 2017 7:30 pm Wow, that deal with Hot Topic is just too.....you know what never mind. Thanks to their recent announcement of a planned 10,000 seat arena show in 2018, The Bullet Club and Cody Rhodes are back in the crosshairs of the pro wrestling community at-large. A big stick pointing of the tentatively scheduled indie wrestling Super Bowl is who would finance the event? Well if you believe The Bullet Club themselves, their t-shirt deal with Hot Topic is doing very good and at this rate maybe the “All In” supershow may be financed on the backs of Rhodes, Bucks, Omega, Scurll and Page’s t-shirt sale. I can't see them selling 400,000 t-shirts in a 4 month period, but who am i?
