The streets where Brian McIntyre grew up, were ferocious in those days, and they’re worse today, which is why “BoMac” fulfilled a lifelong goal in 2013 by opening a boxing gym snack-dam in the middle of Omaha’s most-dangerous war zone.
BoMac’s thriving B&B Sports Academy has provided a sanctuary for nieghborhood kids, some of whom (like Crawford, himself) have evolved into top pros.
McIntyre joins us this week for an in-depth interview about his life, his academy, and his relationship with the undefeated, three-division world champion, Terence Crawford, among other topics.
We also talk with expert analysts Rizwaan Zahid and John J. Raspanti about a leaked video showing Teofimo Lopez getting decked hard by a sparring partner, the festering feud between Team Canelo and the DAZN streaming network that gave him $365 million for a five-year, 11-fight commitment, Canelo’s ambiguity on choosing an opponent, which has paralyzed four weight divisions, Billy Joe Saunders’ call-out of GGG, Luke Campbell’s chances against Vasyl Lomachenko, Manny Pacquiao’s sudden status as the betting favorite over Keith Thurman, and Tyson Fury’s gleeful announcement that a Wilder rematch is set for Feb. 22.
