The Fight City Podcast No. 33

Welcome back to a new edition of our podcast, hosted as always by Alden Chodash! This week he and site founder and editor Michael Carbert discuss the big knockout win from Deontay Wilder over Luis Ortiz and give their takes on Wilder vs Fury II, before moving on to reminisce about the amazing heavyweight slugfest that was Holyfield vs Cooper. Then another exclusive interview for The Fight City Podcast, this time with Montreal super middleweight Shakeel Phinn, the NABF and IBF North American champion, with a record of 21-2 and 15 knockouts. Phinn is back in action against Mateusz Tryc (8-0) this Saturday in Zakopane, Poland. He’s looking for a big fight and he’s calling out Caleb Plant and Anthony Dirrell! Check it out:

“He’s learned some lessons and he understands better how the boxing business really works. If you’re going to be successful, you have to be totally dedicated; you can never get comfortable, never be complacent. And I see it in the gym; Shak just keeps getting sharper. And one of the things I really like is that, as good as he competes in sparring, he raises his game in the ring, which is the opposite of a lot of boxers. And honestly, he’s only going to get better. Because while most fighters have one or two dangerous weapons to rely on, Shak has a full tool set. He’s still learning, still a work-in-progress, but now he has a truly world-class jab, a terrific right hand, and a dangerous uppercut. So when he puts it all together, he’s going to be extremely hard to beat. He’s just got too many weapons.”    –From “Back In The Win Column” by Michael Carbert
