Just about every boxing fan feels strongly about what happened in the Andre Ward vs Sergey Kovalev fight. Even those who believe it was a close fight seem to believe it with conviction. Maybe all the controversy isn't as bad as we think. Maybe -- just maybe -- the fact that boxing fans are emotionally invested in this fight is an encouraging sign for the future of the sport.
Or we could just be completely making that up.
But looking toward the immediate future, HBO hosts what should be an entertaining super featherweight bout this weekened between Vasyl Lomachenko and Nicholas Walters. It's a fight that's helping 2016 close a lot stronger than it opened.
This week on the show, author and filmmaker Brin-Jonathan Butler again joins writer and boxing historian Patrick Connor in discussing it all.
