Saul Alvarez aka ‘La Flama Roja’ fights on HBO tomorrow night…

Actually I made that nickname up. He’s really internationally knows as “Canelo.” But last time I checked cinnamon was brown. But he’s a redheaded Mexican. So his alias from this point on is La Flama Roja. You heard it here first. In all seriousness, Alvarez is a tough bastard. He fights like a bully and takes punishment as well as he gives it. Based on his looks and his fighting style, I’m pretty sure Micky Ward knocked up some Mexican puta and out popped this dude. He looks to improve his flawless 36-0 record tomorrow night on HBO. Tune in. He’s one of the most entertaining middleweights in boxing.

HBO documentary from The Fighter – “High on Crack Street”

A few years ago I was searching for old Micky Ward videotape on Youtube. High On Crack St. popped up in the results and I had no clue what it was until I read some of the description. I favorited it in hopes of watching it down the road, but the youtube user promptly took it down before I got a chance. No one uploaded it  until recently, so here it is in six parts.  It’s the actual HBO special that inspired part of Christian Bale’s role in The Fighter. It follows a handful of crack fiends from Lowell, MA, one of them being Micky Ward’s brother/trainer Dicky Eklund portrayed by Christian Bale in the Oscar nominated The Fighter. Enjoy.
