Terence Crawford, a 9-1 betting favorite, put the expected beatdown on Pacquiao conqueror Jeff Horn on Saturday, finishing him in nine rounds, solidifying his position as one of boxing’s pound-for-pound best. But how premature is Bob Arum’s declaration that Crawford is now on equal ground with Sugar Ray Leonard?
Expert analysts Rizwaan Zahid and John J. Raspanti weigh in on that topic, Tyson Fury’s chubby comeback, the Santa Cruz-Mares slugfest, and Jermell Charlo’s win over Austin Trout, as well as the never-ending dog-and-pony show involving the Canelo-Golovkin negotiations.
All of this precedes Paul McLaughlin’s report from the United Kingdom, and our own main event — an in-depth interview with two of boxing’s living legends, 90-year-old promoter-matchmaker Don Chargin, and 83-year-old PR specialist Bill Caplan (both Hall of Famers, both still very active in the sport).
Dennis Taylor is host of The Ringside Boxing Show, editor-publisher of www.ringsideboxingshow.com, and co-author (with John J. Raspanti) of the Amazon bestseller, “Intimate Warfare: The True Story of the Arturo Gatti and Micky Ward Boxing Trilogy.”
