Where am I? Home Columns Mike Sloan
 

Las Vegas-based columnist who also reports on all the goings-on in Sin City. Passionate about music and other sports as well, but the fightsports are his number-one priority aside from his family. Originally from Chicago’s South Side, Sloan has been a boxing junkie since he was a little kid and grew up on Mike Tyson, Marvin Hagler and Ray Leonard.

Sloan has been a boxing reporter for almost a decade and has covered/interviewed/featured the biggest (and smallest) names in the sport. He’s also the type of reporter who shows up early and catches every fight on the card and respects the sport to the fullest. He gets along with everybody, but if you don’t want to hear honesty or the truth, don’t ask him any questions. Sloan also covers mixed martial arts for Sherdog.com, the leading MMA news site and has been published in dozens of magazines.

SecondsOut Fight of the Year 2013: Bradley vs. Provodnikov

SecondsOut Fight of the Year 2013: Bradley vs. Provodnikov

By Mike Sloan: 2013 was a tremendous year for the sport of boxing. While it’ll unlikely go down in history ranked among the best calendar year ever – too many old dinosaurs holding on to the “glory days” will always scoff at anything that occurs past 1965 – this past year was remarkable.

Timothy Bradley: Mayweather AND Hall Of Fame?

Timothy Bradley: Mayweather AND Hall Of Fame?

By Mike Sloan: When Timothy Bradley was awarded a decision win over Manny Pacquiao last June, the overwhelming majority of the boxing world erupted into chaos. Most thought that Bradley won only a handful of rounds against the Filipino superstar; to give him the overall nod was deemed ludicrous. Timothy Bradley: Mayweather AND Hall Of Fame?
Mayweather vs. Garcia Next? Not So Fast.

Mayweather vs. Garcia Next? Not So Fast.

By Mike Sloan: Saturday night in Las Vegas was a sensational one for the sport of boxing, that part is unquestioned. The mega event between undisputed pound-for-pound king Floyd Mayweather and Mexican superstar Saul Alvarez smashed live gate revenue records and premature numbers suggest that the Showtime-televised card might set the all-time pay-per-view mark.

When Is Enough Finally Enough? Now

When Is Enough Finally Enough? Now

By Mike Sloan: Ever since Saturday’s mega event concluded, a sizeable chunk of the boxing buzz has not been about Floyd Mayweather’s masterful performance against Canelo Alvarez or Danny Garcia’s upset win over Lucas Matthysse. Because it’s the sport of boxing, one of the hottest topics has been a negative one: the absolutely dreadful and mind-numbing 114-114 score turned in by CJ Ross for the Mayweather-Canelo fight.

The Lowdown On… Mayweather vs. Canelo

The Lowdown On… Mayweather vs. Canelo

By Mike Sloan: To say that Saturday’s showdown between Floyd Mayweather and Saul Alvarez will be the biggest fight of the year would be a gross understatement. It’s a duel that virtually every sports show at least mentions, if not debates it outright. The Lowdown On… Mayweather vs. Canelo
The Lowdown on… Garcia vs. Matthysse

The Lowdown on… Garcia vs. Matthysse

By Mike Sloan: It’s a fight that can go a litany of ways, but the most likely scenario is that it’ll turn into an all-out war with both men’s beards being tested repeatedly; it’ll end via knockout. The Lowdown on… Garcia vs. Matthysse
The Lowdown On… Mayweather vs. Guerrero

The Lowdown On… Mayweather vs. Guerrero

By: Mike Sloan: Cinco de Mayo weekend is always the best weekend of the year because of two things: The Kentucky Derby and the biggest boxing event of the year (depending on what the September card will be). What’s even better is that the boxing event is always in Las Vegas and it always features at least one of the biggest stars in the entire sport. The Lowdown On… Mayweather vs. Guerrero
SecondsOut Fight of the Year: Pacquiao vs. Marquez IV

SecondsOut Fight of the Year: Pacquiao vs. Marquez IV

By Mike Sloan: In one of the tightest races in recent years, the winner of the Fight of the Year category was given the honors by the slimmest of margins: one vote. 2012 was flooded with plenty of terrific fights, but these past twelve months were anchored by two battles. SecondsOut Fight of the Year: Pacquiao vs. Marquez IV
The Lowdown on… Martinez vs. Chavez Jr.

The Lowdown on… Martinez vs. Chavez Jr.

By Mike Sloan in Las Vegas: The fight that has nabbed the majority of the attention in Las Vegas this week is the huge showdown between unbeaten Julio Cesar Chavez, Jr. and world middleweight champion Sergio Martinez at the Thomas & Mack Center. The HBO Pay Per View-televised bout has sold out the 19,000-seat venue and it’s expected to do very well in terms of television viewers. The Lowdown on… Martinez vs. Chavez Jr.
The Lowdown on… Canelo vs. Lopez

The Lowdown on… Canelo vs. Lopez

By Mike Sloan: The other major fight in Las Vegas on Saturday is the Golden Boy-promoted, Showtime-televised battle between Mexican sensation Saul “Canelo” Alvarez and streaking Josesito Lopez. The bout headlines a stacked card inside the MGM Grand Garden Arena and the victor could wind up hitting a jackpot in his next bout. The Lowdown on… Canelo vs. Lopez
