About

Boxing is life, and if I'm lucky it always will be.

I once attempted to lace up the gloves myself. It was in my living room, as a teenager, but my career was cut tragically short when I realized that I didn't much care for being hit.

Since then I've had to settle for writing about boxing and boxers. I consider it my passion in life.

In my career at Bleacher Report, I've been lucky enough to cover several big fights live, including the huge pay-per-view event between Floyd Mayweather and Canelo Alvarez last September in Las Vegas. In the process, I've been fortunate enough to interview fighters like Mayweather, Alvarez, Manny Pacquiao, Timothy Bradley, Bernard Hopkins and Miguel Cotto. Not bad for someone who happened upon BR when it was still in its nascent stages, and said, why not me?

My work has also been featured on CNN, HBO Boxing and Doghouse Boxing.

In addition to my boxing responsibilities, I have also been part of BR's coverage teams for NASCAR, NCAA Basketball, the NHL and PGA Tour.

    Kevin - I currently write for B/R's World Soccer team but I have a contact who represents Scott Cardle (new lightweight title holder), Big Joe Egan (ex-boxer, friend of Mike Tyson, Sugar Ray Leonard and many other ex-pros) and also Rob Reid. My contact would like to get interviews published for one or all of them and I thought that you would be the best person to ask. Of interest to you sir?

    If Mayweather was this supposed best ever he would have faced Pacquiao 5 years ago when it matter most. Instead he weak competition over his last five fights unlike Pacqiuao who gave two fighter their first professional losses. Before Manny the last true threat was Miguel Cotto. And I find it odd that Mayweather pretty much demands fighters fight him within 6 months of their last fight while he pretty much waits a year or more before he fights. Greatest ever? Not even close. Greatest in his generation not even close If he was he would have faced Timothy Bradley Jr., Amir Khan, Kell Brook, or Keith Thurman. He wouldn't even last 6 rounds against Thurman. He fights people he knows will not hurt him. Manny is not a cut throat fighter and Mayweather knows that. Plus let's get the fact straight about Manny's injury. He was injured before that fight but it was aggravated after the 3rd round.

    Your statement about Marquez coming up 2 weight classes to fight Floyd is wrong. Marquez fought at 135 in his last fight before he fought Floyd and weighed in at 142 for the Floyd fight. That's only 7 pounds man. That's not 2 full weight classes. You give ammunition to ignorant ass Manny fans with that shit dude. Do your homework.

    Manny Pacquiao has been documented by LA Times that he's taken 4 drug test so far for this up coming fight on May 2. Each time they take his blood there taking 4 viles. There are absolutely no reports from Floyds camp about receiving a visit from USADA. Where's the level playing field Floyd was talking about cleaning up the sport? What's your take?

    Kevin, c'mon really!! Gene Haas is not trying to get his Indy Car Team off the ground.
    He is in the process of putting together a Formula 1 Team. for a person who writes about motor sports you think you would know the difference. How does it feel to be stupid.?
    by the way Gene Haas has been working on this for nearly two years already. Time for you to start drinking a better brand of coffee!! Wake up!
