The Fight City Podcast No. 27

Brand new edition of our podcast right here as host Alden Chodash is joined by Seamus McNally of Stiff for an in-depth breakdown of Pacquiao vs Thurman and a remarkable performance by the 40-year-old Filipino legend. It’s an historic victory which raises all kinds of implications and questions for both fighters and Chodash and McNally fearlessly delve into these for your listening pleasure, as well as a look at the major undercard results including Yordenis Ugas defeating Omar Figueroa Jr., plus wins by Luis Nery and Caleb Plant. Plus, also up for discussion is Teofimo Lopez’s tougher-than-expected battle with Masayoshi Nakatani. Check it out:

“But Pac made Thurman pay for his bad habits of backing straight up and squaring up, not to mention the obvious stamina and strength deficits in the later rounds. Thurman looked spent at the end of the ninth and badly hurt in the tenth and Pac had an easy time of rounds eleven and twelve, though Thurman still looked dangerous in spurts. These issues can be corrected only if Thurman still has the heart of a warrior and is willing to do the hard work of getting back to championship form.”       From “The Look In The PacMan’s Eyes” by Ralph M.
