The Fight City Podcast No. 22

Welcome to a brand new episode of The Fight City Podcast, hosted as always by Alden Chodash. This week he is joined by site founder and editor Michael Carbert as they talk about the latest boxing action including this past weekend’s DAZN show at the MGM National Harbor, recent developments on the Quebec boxing scene, as well as interviews with Shakur Stevenson and Gary Russell Jr., and then finally a discussion on the upcoming anniversary of the historic battle between all-time greats Barney Ross and Henry Armstrong. Check it out:

“Redemption was the name of the game for Gary Russell Jr., who bested a wily, powerful veteran in Gonzalez in impressive fashion. Before stepping up last year to face Lomachenko, Russell’s critics decried his mediocre level of opposition while his fans extolled his hand speed and natural talent. Last night in Las Vegas, the 26-year-old Russell showed not only that his hand speed can dazzle a champion, but that it can also disarm him entirely, thus signalling his arrival as a top featherweight. The new WBC champion went a long way towards validating the hype that followed him for so long, and gained more than a few fans at the same time.”   From “Fight Report: Gonzalez vs Russell Jr.” by Rafael Garcia
