Call this our WTF Edition of The Ringside Boxing Show, as expert analysts Travis Hartman, Rizwaan Zahid, and John J. Raspanti dissect Golden Boy’s utterly weird fib about Canelo’s surgery, Pacquiao’s decision to dump Freddie Roach and put his life and career in the hands of longtime camp mascot Buboy Fernandez, the chaos surrounding Golovkin’s May 5 fight, and Eddie Hearn’s robber-baron offer to Deontay Wilder for the Joshua fight.
We also break down Pacquiao vs. Lucas Matthysse, Broner vs. Jessie Vargas, Jermall Charlo vs. Hugo Centeno, Gervonta Davis vs. Jesus Cuellar, and Amir Khan vs. Phil Lo Greco — all scheduled Saturday.
Our British correspondent, Paul McLaughlin, updates us on the boxing scene in the UK, including the latest shenanigans of Tyson Fury.
And our inimitable boxing historian, Christopher James Shelton, reminisces about the ominous life, career, and death of former heavyweight champ Sonny Liston.
