Welcome to another edition of The Fight City podcast, hosted by Alden Chodash, who this week gets a welcome respite while Michael Carbert and Rafael Garcia discuss, among other things, the stacked Eye Of The Tiger card at the Montreal Casino; Jaime Munguia; Keith Thurman’s comeback and what may be in store for him in the near future, and Wilder vs Fury II which, according to the rumor mill is about to signed and sealed. Plus, an in-depth look at the rematch between Sergey Kovalev and Eleider Alvarez which goes down Saturday night, in Texas of all places. Check it out:
“And let’s be crystal clear on this point: Sergey Kovalev is still a very dangerous fighter; there is no reason to think otherwise. He gave Andre Ward two tough battles, many believing he deserved a better fate in their first clash, and he had since notched two knockout wins. The truth to be drawn from Kovalev vs Alvarez is that ‘Storm’ is a better boxer than almost anyone realized. At the Hard Rock he was focused, in excellent condition, not the least bit intimidated by ‘Krusher,’ and he executed his strategy to perfection.
“In other words, the stage is now set for another fistic renaissance in The Fight City, this time led by a Colombian boxer who, in addition to his ring skills, boasts truly admirable patience and allegiance and a backstory which, if brought to the attention of the mainstream sports fan, can only inspire further admiration and sympathy, not to mention singing turnstiles and crowded aisles.” From “The Wake Of The Storm” by Michael Carbert
