Zab Is Back! (Yet Again)

For those who missed Zab's win over Vernon Paris on Saturday (which ran concurrently with HBO's Morales-Garcia fight), here's the footage of the 9th round TKO:

Zab looked great ruining Paris's 26-0 record coming into the fight. Afterwards, Zab said he would consider fighting Lamont Peterson, Amir Khan again, or Danny Garcia. He also mentioned he had a friendly bet with Kendall Holt over who would defeat their most recent opponent quicker -- Kendall won with his 2nd round TKO over Tim Coleman a couple weeks ago.

Could You Fight in a Skirt?

Men have been boxing in Olympic Games since as early as 688 BC according to Wikipedia. Centuries later—this summer—women's boxing will appear for the first time as an Olympic event in London.

The International Boxing Association has announced that the uniform will potentially be, wait for it, skirts. The AIBA says: "...skirts help differentiate" the women from the men. Fans can't tell the difference? The long hair and sports bras up top aren't enough?

Before deciding it's all too silly to pay attention to, take a moment and imagine fighters urged to wear something that marked them by race instead.
