Ward made the International Boxing Hall of Fame and recently Showtime platformed his auto-bio pic.

Tim Bradley emerged in the last couple years as an analyst more in keeping with the ESPN preferred talent style, he’s more brash with opinions than is the more measured and sometimes guarded Ward.

Founder/editor Michael Woods got addicted to boxing in 1990, when Buster Douglas shocked the world with his demolition of the then-impregnable Mike Tyson. The Brooklyn-based journalist has covered the sport since for ESPN The Magazine,, Bad Left Hook and RING. His journalism career started with NY Newsday in 1999. Michael Woods is also an accomplished blow by blow and color man, having done work for Top Rank, DiBella Entertainment, EPIX, and for Facebook Fightnight Live, since 2017.
