Expect the unexpected in boxing: Canelo KOs Kovalev with a brutal left-right combo in the 11th round in a fight that ended long after most East Coast boxing fans had gone to bed.
Expert analysts Travis Hartman, Rizwaan Zahid, and John J. Raspanti dissect a fascinating fight between a pound-for-pound superstar and a much-feared defending champ two weight divisions heavier. They break down why Canelo was able to stop a much-larger man, what it means for his legacy, and the multiple options awaiting a three-division world champion.
They also examine DAZN’s confounding decision to delay this high-profile main event until a competing UFC show had ended … and then made fans wait an additional 90 minutes for the opening bell.
In our own main event, we talk in-depth with one of the P4P personalities in the sport, Teofimo Lopez Jr., who puts his perfect record on the line Dec. 14 at Madison Square Garden when he challenges fellow knockout artist Richard Commey for the IBF’s 135-pound world title belt.
Teofimo, a human fireworks show in and out of the ring, delivers another scintillating interview to The Ringside Boxing Show.
