    Saul Canelo Alvarez vs. Amir Khan For WBC Middleweight Crown

    in Sports

    Tonight, we discuss the bombshell fight announcement from earlier today when we learned that WBC/Lineal middleweight champion of the world Saul “Canelo” Alvarez will be defending his title against Amir Khan at a catch weight of 155lbs. Even fresh off of one of the biggest fights of his career – a win over Miguel Cotto last year – Canelo is determined to prove he is willing to make the biggest matchups possible. 


    Canelo and Khan will take place in Las Vegas, likely at the new T-Mobile arena scheduled to open in April, but the site is not yet determined. However, we do know that the mega showdown will happen May 7th on HBO PPV. The announcement sent shockwaves through the boxing world, specifically through social media. Now, we attempt to bring together and discuss all the excitement, all the concerns and all of the speculation that makes this fight so important. And, of course, we will be taking live calls on air from you the voice of the people. From Alumni to first-time callers, we encourage everyone to call 646-478-3068 to voice your opinion.

    Canelo Alvarez vs Amir Khan Official, Kovalev-Pascal II Recap with Matthew Swain

    in Sports

    Well that Saul "Canelo" Alvarez vs Amir Khan announcement sure came out of nowhere. How are we even supposed to react to news like this? A welterweight and big junior middleweight fighting for the middleweight title at a catchweight? It's weird. Some like it. Some don't. Patrick Connor of The Fight City is joined by Matthew Swain of The Queensberry Rules in dissecting the matchup and figuring out just how hard we should roll our collective eyes, if at all.


    Also a likely topic is last weekend's sacrificial offering of Jean Pascal upon the altar of Sergey Kovalev. Was the rematch productive at all?

    Miguel Cotto vs Saul "Canelo" Alvarez Preview with Brin-Jonathan Butler

    in Sports

    2015 has been a strange year, boxing fans. The disappointments have often out-weighed the good we could take from fights, but it would take more than that to scare us hardcore types away. Also, if we'd have walked away, we would have missed one of this year's biggest matchups in Miguel Cotto vs Saul "Canelo" Alvarez.


    And that's exactly the big fight we're previewing this week on the show. James Foley of Bad Left Hook and The Fight City's Patrick Connor welcome back to the show writer and filmmaker Brin-Jonathan Butler to dissect what could be another great Mexico vs. Puerto Rico matchup.


    On the Pay-Per-View undercard, Takashi Miura risks his 130 lb belt in taking on unbeaten Mexican Olympian Francisco Vargas, bantamweight titlist Randy Caballero takes on UK native Lee Haskins, and Guillermo Rigondeaux makes his first appearance of 2015 as a recent addition to the card.


    Get ready with all your beers, cocktails and bon-... Accoutrement.
