The month of October is closing out and we are ready to preview the final fight weekend of it with hosts TJ Rives and guests on “The Big Fight Weekend podcast.”
TJ welcomes Marquis Johns, senior writer of BigFightWeekend.com and special guests Keith idec, senior writer columnist for Boxingscene.com to go over the news the week and preview the fight cards this weekend.
The guys discuss first the impressive win by unbeaten Shakur Stevenson to capture the WBO Jr. Lightweight title in Atlanta last Saturday by stoppage over Jamel Herring. Just how good was Stevenson and what’s his future, etc.?
Next, it’s the cancellation of the Heavyweight Contender bout that had been scheduled for London Saturday night as British WBC top contender Dillian Whyte, (above) who mysteriously has a “shoulder injury” prior to fighting Sweden’s Otto Wallin. Of course everyone knows that the real motivation is that white wants to fight WBC Heavyweight champion, Tyson Fury, next and get a much bigger publicity/payday bout.
Keith has great insight, including if the WBC might allow Fury to bypass fighting Whyte and fight someone else in early 2022?
Then the discussion turns to the Welterweight fights that will headline the Showtime Networks / PBC Fight Card Saturday night from Las Vegas. Keith is on hand as unbeaten Philadelphia Welterweight Jaron “Boots” Ennis is in action in the co-feature. Then, WBA top ranked Jamal James will fight unbeaten Radzhab Butaev in the main event. What is the future for both Ennis and James, if they are victorious?
Finally, TJ and Marquis come back in to give their predictions and fight picks on all the cards this weekend, from London to New York and Vegas, including a little gambling advice.
