The Fight City Podcast No. 34

Brand new podcast dropping for all you fight freaks, hosted as always by Alden Chodash, just in time for the big heavyweight rematch between Andy Ruiz Jr. and Anthony Joshua. A range of opinions and picks are on offer here, including an exclusive interview with former world champion Otis Grant, plus opinions from heavyweights Simon Kean and Arslanbek Makhmudov. Site founder and editor Michael Carbert offers some thoughts on the troubling circumstances of the location of this event, thoughts which echo (literally) those of columnist Ralph M. Semien, who recently declared on this site that “Eddie Hearn Has No Morals.” Will Joshua redeem himself? Will Andy Ruiz Jr. prove to be the second coming of James “Buster” Douglas? Or does boxing’s first Mexican-American heavyweight champion just have Joshua’s number? Check it out:

“But if there are questions regarding Joshua’s mental focus and ability to adjust, there are also questions for Ruiz, the biggest one being whether there exists the same fire to hold on to the belts as there was to win them. Since dethroning Joshua, Ruiz has embraced the moment, buying a mansion in California with plenty of lavish accessories, in the midst of a perpetual fiesta for Mexico’s first heavyweight champion of the world. But after the smoke clears and Ruiz finds himself in the ring again, fans and pundits want to know whether he’ll once again be fighting like a man with something to prove.”      From “Andy Ruiz Jr: Just Another Cinderella Man?” by Alden Chodash
