25 APRIL 2014

 

Jason Pribila "Pribs" is based out of Bethlehem, USA. My first feature article on the Sweet Science was published on Secondsout.com on Christmas Day 2007. Since receiving that gift I have been able to cover several fight cards in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. Like many people in their 30's, I fell in love with the sport of boxing as Mike Tyson was terrorizing the Heavyweight Division. Thankfully fighters like Arturo Gatti and Sugar Shane Mosley were there to mend my broken heart. I'm looking forward to continue to grow as a writer and storyteller; while providing the fans in the $50 seats a view from Press Row.

“Boxing: Funny the Way It Is”

By Jason Pribila: Due to some scheduling conflicts and a battle with the worst cold I’ve experienced since the “Blizzard of ‘94”, I have been away from live boxing and more importantly my laptop for too long.

Andre Ward Looking For Respect at Homecoming

Andre Ward Looking For Respect at Homecoming

By Jason Pribila: At one time an Olympic Gold Medal was an American fighter’s introduction to the world. The moment when a camera zoomed on a fighter’s face when the medal was placed around his neck was often the equivalent of being handed a blank check. Andre Ward is the only American to capture gold during the last two Olympic Games, but it has yet to translate to gold around his waist or in his bank account.
