The Fight City Podcast No. 39

Life goes on, fight freaks! Even with this scary plague they call COVID-19. And if life goes on, then that means Alden Chodash is more than happy to whip up a brand new podcast to entertain you during your self-quarantine. For this newest edition he and site editor Michael Carbert discuss some of the fallout from the corona virus outbreak and the long list of big fights that have been cancelled or postponed. They also reminisce about former champion Roger Mayweather who died this past week, and they share their views on the emerging possibility of a third Gennadiy Golovkin vs Canelo Alvarez superfight this coming fall. Finally, we have an exclusive interview with former super lightweight champion Regis Prograis, the pride of New Orleans, who is looking to rebound after his close loss to Josh Taylor in one of last year’s best fights. Check it out:

“But that would be Roger’s last defeat for some time as he went on to win the WBC junior welterweight belt and then notch four successful defenses. At the same time Chavez had continued his march of dominance, including huge wins over lightweight champions Edwin Rosario and Jose Luis Ramirez. Mayweather had racked up eight straight victories and with six of those coming against Mexican pugilists, “The Black Mamba” was now also known as “The Mexican Assassin.” His new title belt and new moniker made Roger an attractive opponent for Julio and thus, in a development that no one would have predicted four years earlier, Chavez vs Mayweather II was on.”         From Chavez vs Mayweather II by Jamie Rebner
