Obenauf - who fought in three world title bouts during her career - held a 14-6 record and two World Boxing Federation international titles...

Including interest and various fees and expenses, the presidential candidate's brother now owes Boxer - the daughter of Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) - more than $158,000, the source said.

    Dadashev was placed in a medically induced coma following a 2-hour surgery early Saturday morning during which a portion of his skull was removed to reduce swelling caused by a brain bleed, ESPN reported.

    "In 1964, a young boxer named Cassius Clay ("the Louisville Lip") won an upset victory over Sonny Liston. Later that year, Clay changed his name from Cassius Marcellus Clay Jr. to Cassius X, then to Muhammad Ali. Ali initially joined the nation of Islam (promoting "the Honorable" Elijah Muhammad and Malcolm X) and refusing to be drafted into the Vietnam War. In interviews, Ali said that he changed his name because "Clay was a white name" and "a slave name," while "Muhammad" and "Ali" weren't. Ali eventually left the Nation of Islam and became an orthodox Sunni Muslim, though still...

    Capitol Police on October 3 arrested 27-year old congressional staffer Jackson Cosko for posting on Wikipedia the private addresses of three members of the Senate Judiciary Committee—what’s known as “doxxing” (a word derived from the shorthand for “document”).

Sheila Jackson-Lee (D-Texas) has denied she knew anything about Cosko’s activities....

    Franco, 25, sustained a head injury in a featherweight fight in Iowa Saturday. The fight was stopped in the 8th of 10 rounds. He took a blow to the head from Utah’s Jose Haro. Franco was heavily favored in the televised bout but after that punch in the 8th round, officials saw Franco clearly wobbling and stopped the fight. He was taken to the hospital where doctors discovered several brain bleeds. Before the devastating blow, Franco got knocked down in the ring and that can have an affect on a fighter a fellow boxer says. “That weakens you as a...

    Complete Headline: After 24 years working together, Feinstein and Boxer say goodbye to their 'Thelma and Louise' partnership In 1992, Dianne Feinstein and Barbara Boxer pitched themselves to California voters as the dynamic duo, as "Thelma and Louise," as "Cagney and Lacey." They were trying to convince voters to do something no state had ever done: Elect two women to represent them in the U.S. Senate.
