Episode 132: Lomachenko Toys With Marriaga, ESPN Toys With Boxing

Episode Summary

Objective analysis and discussion of the latest topics in boxing. Full previews and recaps of global action. Occasional bickering, jokes, and heated conversations.

Episode Notes

We’re back to fully breakdown and discuss the Vasyl Lomachenko vs Miguel Marriaga beat down. We discuss why it was a ratings failure and who should really be held accountable for the disappointment. We somehow tie it to Adrien Broner and it will make sense. Also, how HBO divides the boxing community, delusional promoters, and the proposed plan for Bryant Jennings. Plus, Claressa Shields’s dominant performance and her future (yes, we discuss Ronda Rousey), the retirement of Juan Manuel Marquez and Tim Bradley, why we need to add Manny Pacquiao to the list, and Paulie Malignaggi’s sneaky plan. Plus quick hits on David Benavidez, Zou Shiming, Terence Crawford, Orlando Salido, and more!

And we cap it all off with a big discussion on Canelo vs Golovkin and some controversial takes there!
