As temperatures heat up, we hope the action in boxing does too. This year has been kind to us, though, so we'll try to be a little kind in our discussion.
Last weekend, Mikey Garcia outclassed Adrien Broner over the distance on Showtime, while Jermall Charlo dispatched a clearly handicapped Jorge Sebastian Heiland. This Friday, again on Showtime, unbeaten Olympic gold medalist Claressa Shields continues her professional march by stepping in with Nikki Adler, also undefeated.
Also on Friday, welterweight Mauricio Herrera steps in with Jesus Soto Karass on ESPN. The sports network again shows boxing on Saturday, however, when it airs the card featuring Vasyl Lomachenko vs Miguel Marriaga.
Basically there's a little something for everyone on this episode of Knuckles and Gloves Boxing Radio, and Brin-Jonathan Butler and Patrick Connor will guide you through it.
