For all of you taking part in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge….Here’s a bit of comic relief to reward your efforts!
Thompson Boxing Promotions returns to the Omega Products Outdoor Arena on Friday, Aug. 22, with a stacked “New Blood” card featuring free-swinging featherweight Juan Reyes (10-1-3, 1 KO) of Riverside meeting Victor Capaceta (4-6-3, 2 KOs) of Tijuana in a 6-round fight. Reyes is no stranger to the Omega Products Outdoor Arena, having put on an all-action brawl against Jonathan Arellano last August that ended in a highly competitive draw. Various media sitting ringside opined that the Reyes-Arellano scrap would have made a great main event for ESPN’s “Friday Night Fights” telecast. But before Reyes heads into the Omega Products Outdoor Arena he headed in Studio with Stu, Tiffany and Jimbo!
This Sports Anchor paid homage to the late, great comedian by name-dropping 22 Robin Williams movies during his short broadcast!
Catch Efrain Esquivias, as he looks to get back on track after a rare defeat, on Friday July 25th, at the Doubletree in Ontario as part of Thompsons Boxing Promotions “Locked ‘N Loaded”. But, before Efrain heads into the ring, he hung out with Stu, Tiffany & Jimbo!
This is epic! Way to go dude!
Last Saturday I had the pleasure of doing photos at what many considered the most stacked fight card in kickboxing history. The Forum was the location for Glory 17 – Last Man Standing. First of all, I have to give props to Glory for choosing LA as the spot for such a great event. The night started with five undercard fights, and then was simulcast on Spike TV for the Glory 17 portion of the night. After that, it switched to PPV for the Last Man Standing 8 man tournament. That tournament was crazy. Three fights in one night to win it, and these guys brought it!
The undercard was great. A number of the fighters have also fought locally for Dennis Warner’s WCK, and to watch them on this kind of stage was exciting…

I never personally knew Tony Gwynn, but somehow he still seemed like a friend. Perhaps this is because I grew up in San Diego and I idolized him. Pretending I was him when I played little league or throwing pop flies to myself in the backyard while doing my best Jerry Coleman impression as I announced; “Oh Doctor! What a play by Tony Gwynn!” I even wore #19 because of him.
In the video above Keith Olbermann does a fundamental job painting the picture of who Tony really was. RIP friend, there will never be another one like you.
