Oh, boxing. Oh, controversy. Funky happenings seem to follow boxing around like some type of Remora, feeding off the crumbs that fall by the wayside, sometimes consuming it whole. By the way, a Remora is one of those fish that kicks it with sharks all the time. That said, we have a new WBO junior welterweight belt-holder, and discussion of the fight that produced it is in order. Some can't seem to grasp the injustice of Chris Algieri's split decision win over Ruslan Provodnikov, others feel it was a close fight and the decision went the correct way. Bad Left Hook's James Foley and Patrick Connor of Queensberry Rules will weigh in with their absolute final, totally legit and 100% dead on opinions, which are certified awesome by minutes of sobriety. Also up for grabs: Demetrius Andrade's win over Brian Rose, and this coming weekend's card which includes Robert Guerrero vs Yoshihiro Kamegai, Gary Russell Jr vs Vasyl Lomachenko and Devon Alexander vs Jesus Soto Karass. Thanks for tuning in!
