The Fight City Podcast No. 9

Welcome to another edition of The Fight City podcast. As usual, Alden Chodash is at the helm, with site founder and editor Michael Carbert in the first officer’s chair. This week the primary topic of discussion is the DAZN show at Madison Square Garden, a stacked card with some notable performances, including Lamont Roach Jr, Katie Taylor, Ryan Garcia, Yves Ulysse Jr and Tevin Farmer. Chodash and Carbert give their takes on the action before casting a discerning eye at a rather suspect main event, that being Canelo Alvarez’s largely pointless blowout of Rocky Fielding. Carbert then makes an impassioned plea for a third chapter of the Canelo vs GGG rivalry, before Chodash draws everyone’s attention to the big Frampton vs Warrington match happening this coming Saturday. Check it out:

“The only way to be a truly great boxer, one destined for the Hall Of Fame and the history books, is to face and vanquish other great fighters. Until last week, Gennady Golovkin was undefeated and had owned some version of the middleweight world title for six years or more. But the most prominent characteristic of his reign was how so many of his rivals managed to avoid him and thus he was denied the matches which would have likely cemented his legacy. How many pundits would have picked Canelo or Miguel Cottoto defeat Golovkin back in 2015 when the Kazakh was clearly overdue for a chance at undisputed domination? Precious few, no doubt. Certainly neither liked their chances very much at the time. Thus both ducked Golovkin, and thus the best fighter in the division had to wait and wait, and then wait some more, for a showdown with the lineal and undisputed championship on the line.”    From “Canelo vs Golovkin: The Last Word”
