Expert analysts Travis Hartman, Rizwaan Zahid, and John J. Raspanti weigh in on the notion that Spence vs. Porter was a fight for the time capsule, wonder what Terence Crawford must be thinking about Spence, and speculate about how other contenders will view Porter, a dangerous and painful test for everybody he’s ever faced.
They also evaluate Ray Mancini’s opinion that Canelo Alvarez will be considered an all-time great if he beats Sergey Kovalev, and Billy Joe Saunders’ chances of ruining Cinco de Mayo for Canelo.
Our British correspondent, Paul McLaughlin, joins us next to talk more about the prospects for a Saunders-Canelo clash, Nigel Benn’s decision to come out of retirement at age 55 against Sakio Bika, and he takes us inside Joseph Parker’s training camp, where sparring partners are being instructed to deliberately and repeatedly foul Parker to prepare him for Derek Chisora.
Finally, we replay one of our all-time greatest interviews, an in-depth conversation from 2011 with legendary trainer Angelo Dundee, who tells amazing stories about Ali, Sugar Ray Leonard, Willie Pastrano, George Foreman, Joe Frazier, Ray Arcel, ducking bullets during the Cuban Revolution, and much more.
Dundee died four months later. This may well have been the final in-depth interview of Angelo Dundee’s illustrious life, and we were proud to have been a part of it.
