The Fight City Podcast No. 50

Time for a new edition of our podcast, hosted as always by Alden Chodash, who is joined by author and site contributor Glen Sharp as they recap the first fight in almost a year-and-a-half for Artur Beterbiev. Is he still the best light heavyweight in the world? And site editor Michael Carbert pays tribute to the late, great Marvelous Marvin Hagler and breaks down why the doubters have no case when they question the greatness of “The Marvelous One.” Check it out:

“If the unexamined life is not worth living, surely such examination is only as valid as the degree to which it is pursued with humility and honesty. Sharp is acutely aware that nothing but the truth will do if he is to arrive at a satisfying explanation for his relationship with prizefighting. ‘I hope… you find me to be a pretty good storyteller, because I sure wasn’t much of a fighter,’ he writes in the preface, in a phrase that first strikes one as little more than a self-deprecating jab, but which in hindsight is a perfect representation of his book: truthful, unambiguous, self-querying. Moreover, it evidences Sharp’s belief that we can only know who we are by honestly telling our own story: not one that pleases or comforts us, but one that satisfies our craving for understanding.”       From “Punching From The Shadows” by Rafael Garcia
