The Fight City Podcast No. 16

Welcome back to a new edition of The Fight City Podcast, hosted as always by Alden Chodash. This week he and site contributor Jamie Rebner discuss the past weekend’s major action, which included important victories for Dmitry Bivol and Maurice Hooker, as well as a controversial points win for Shawn Porter over Yordenis Ugas. Then site founder and editor Michael Carbert chats with Alden about the big Eye Of The Tiger double-header at the Montreal Casino on Saturday, as well as some upcoming posts, including an exclusive interview with Michael Conlan and a profile of the late, great “Barbados Demon.” Check it out:

‘While the fight was very close through 12, Porter looked disappointed in himself when the bell to conclude the contest rang, in direct contrast to an upbeat Ugas who celebrated prematurely. However, when the scores were announced by Jimmy Lennon, Porter was fortunate to escape with a split decision win, the cards reading 117-111 for Ugas, and 116-112 and 115-113 for “Showtime” Shawn.’    From “The Weekend That Was” by Alden Chodash
