As excuses go, this one might be a first-ballot hall-of-famer: Deontay Wilder claimed that the 40-pound costume he wore during his ring walk was at least partially responsible for the beatdown he endured against Tyson Fury two weekends ago, sapping his leg strength after just two rounds.
Expert analysts Travis Hartman, Rizwaan Zahid, and John J. Raspanti address this embarrassing dog-ate-my-homework tale, weigh Wilder’s wisdom of rushing back into the ring with Fury in July, and offer some insight into Mikey Garcia’s victory over Jessie Vargas and ‘Chocolatito’s’ return to form against Kal Yafai in the weekend’s top fights.
And then we talk to a bona fide all-time great, Larry Holmes, about his sensational 29-year, 75-fight pro career, and how today’s heavyweights would have fared against the legends he faced in his heyday.
