We hook up this week with Showtime Championship Boxing analyst Al Bernstein, who addresses 15 smoking-hot boxing questions for us in a 20-minute interview. This is a fun, fast-moving conversation with an International Boxing Hall of Famer. Fasten your seat belts.
Before that, expert analysts Travis Hartman, Rizwaan Zahid, and John J. Raspanti marvel at the rarely-seen skills and ring generalship of Oleksandr Usyk, the Ukrainian who turned a potential Fight of the Year against Murat Gassiev into his own, personal showcase in the WBSS cruiserweight finale. They also weigh in on the sky’s-the-limit potential of 21-year-old super welterweight world champion Jaime Munguia, the mouthwatering brackets for the WBSS bantamweight and super lightweight tournaments, and Manny Pacquiao’s decision to fight Lucas Matthysse after being diagnosed with a congenital heart condition that had caused breathing difficulties during his training camp.
And our British correspondent, Paul McLaughlin, brings us another insider’s peek at the dynamic boxing scene in the United Kingdom.
