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.
