Host T.J. Rives is ready to break down what the suit filed earlier this week in California Federal Court means for Canelo’s future, as he tries to divorce himself from promoter, Oscar De La Hoya, and the DAZN streaming service.
Things have gone from “war of words” to legal action and T.J. welcomes in a brand new sports law analyst/guest, Dan Lust, aka @SportsLawLust on social media to help understand what the legal filings mean? And, most importantly, how soon Alvarez could get his day in court or be back in the ring?
Dan has tremendous experience with sports law contracts and lawsuits and will shed more light on the legal strategies in play, including what maybe Alvarez should have done to try to break the contract quicker?
Then Sr. Writer at Big Fight Weekend, Marquis Johns, comes back on the podcast with his thoughts on what Canelo may be doing next and whether or not this lawsuit signals the end of the DAZN streaming service showing boxing at least in the United States?
Marquis also has thoughts on Top Rank Boxing out of Las Vegas announcing it’s October fight cards and several prominent world championship fight. Those include, the World Lightweight Unification lshowdown in mid-October between Vasiliy Lomachenko and Teofimo Lopez.
Finally, T.J. and Marquis preview the Saturday night Top Rank card being headlined by Lithuanian Welterweight contender “Mean Machine” Kavaliauskas and his opponent. They also take look at the English Light Heavyweight main event feature fight on Saturday night from London with 19 – 1, World Title Contender Anthony Yarde in action.
