Thankfully this fight is still going ahead on Saturday night because until only a couple of days ago it was looking like Jose Zepeda (who fights on the under-card) was going to have to step in and replace the Argentinian Diego Chaves (23-1, 19 KOs), who was having some much publicized visa issues. After losing his last two fights by clear unanimous decisions against Mike Alvarado and Manny Pacquiao, this is a must win fight for Brandon Rios (31-2-1, 23 KOs) ,the former Light Welterweight champion hasn’t won since October 2012. Expect a war, with the hard hitting Argentinian putting “Bam Bams” granite chin to the test. We will with out a shadow of a doubt be taking live calls on air from you the voice of the people.

and more. Show goes LIVE at 7PM PT with Jeandra LeBeauf and Ryan Bivins aka SweetBoxin
Heavyweight Pro Boxer Antonio Tarver (30-6, 21 KOs) joins the broadcast tonight to talk about his illustrious career. Tarver has key wins over Roy Jones Jr., Clinton Woods, Danny Santiago, Glen Johnson, and Reggie Johnson, among many others. Tarver is also famous for playing "Mason Dixon" in Rocky Balboa. The Florida-based southpaw was also an impressive amateur standout who won a bronze medal at light heavyweight in the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta. He is a three-time World Light Heavyweight Champion, and he is now campaigning at heavyweight. Tom, Tony, and Rich also discuss the week in combat sports news and events. We'll be analyzing the upcoming bout between Bernard Hopkins and Sergey Kovalev in particular.
So. Sergey Kovalev knocked someone out. What else is new??? It's like saying, "A lot of people watch The Walking Dead." Or, "Sofia Vergara is attractive." These things are known, and more or less accepted now. What needs to be discussed is the manner in which Kovalev tackled relatively unknown opponent Cedric Agnew. James Foley of Bad Left Hook and TQBR's Patrick Connor can do exactly that, ad nauseum. Also to be pondered: Thomas Dulorme's win over Karim Mayfield, ESPN's Boxcino Tournament, and the bulljive surrounding the failed Adonis Stevenson vs Kovalev bout. There may be more, but that's most of it. Thanks for tuning in!
On this episode we pose the question, Does Rios Vs Chaves need to happen again? Or did Chaves upset you with his dirty fighting or was it Rios with his non stop crying? Many had Chaves ahead on the score cards. we will find out tonight as we break down this past weekends fights we had a lot of strange results from Friday Night Fights to HBO Boxing after dark. of course we will talk about Sergi Kovalev Knoukout out and his new fight contract to fight the living legend Bernard Hopkins. We will with out a shadow of a doubt be taking live calls on air from you the voice of the people.

From yelling at two men in a clinch to wonky disqualifications, badly-yelled commands and taking points with impunity, all sorts of things happen when referee Vic Drakulich is involved -- and that's before he even gets into the ring! Brandon Rios' DQ win over Diego Chaves was disappointing, to say the least, but at least we had a fun stoppage from Sergey Kovalev over Blake Caparello, and a solid fight between Jessie Vargas and Anton Novikov. Wait, no...that was dumbed down by idiot judges too. This week on TQBR Radio, Bad Left Hook's James Foley and Patrick Connor of Queensberry Rules are joined by Corey Erdman, analyst for The Fight Network and contributor to RingTV. Also up, a preview of Danny Garcia vs Rod Salka, and various musings and ridiculosities. Thanks for tuning in!
We have a special treat for TTT fans this week. BKB director Bruce Binkow (formerly with Golden Boy Promotions) joins us to discuss the August 16th PPV card which is headlined by Brian Vera vs Gab Rosado. Joining Bruce will be Chicago fighter Dimar Ortuz who is 10-0-1 as a professional. Ortuz will be fighting Anthony Johnson, who is also undefeated for a BKB title.
