Gennady Golovkin and Sergiy Derevyanchenko reminded us Saturday night of what the Sweet Science is all about with a savage battle at Madison Square Garden — just 24 hours after somebody from Claressa Shields’ entourage sent her opponent’s 69-year-old trainer to a hospital for facial surgery with a sucker punch.
Expert analysts Travis Hartman, Rizwaan Zahid, and John J. Raspanti dissect the two biggest boxing news stories of the week, and also talk about impressive up-and-comers Israil Madrimov and “Boots” Ennis, and a roster of International Boxing Hall of Famer nominees that is much too good to whittle down.
British correspondent Paul McLaughlin then brings us up to date on the latest happenings on the United Kingdom boxing scene.
And then we go all the way to Sweden to interview Otto Wallin, the Swedish heavyweight who nearly defied 30-1 underdog status, almost upsetting Tyson Fury in Las Vegas on Sept. 14.
Wallin talks in-depth about his life and career, and also tells us what it’s like to trade punches with the sport’s undefeated, 6-foot 9-inch behemoth in the biggest fight of his life.
