The Weekend That Was Podcast (No. 9)

We saw some very significant ring action the last several days, so we’ve got your recap podcast ready to go, thanks to Alden Chodash and Jeffrey Fuss, as they talk Kazuto Ioka’s outstanding victory over a courageous Kosei Tanaka, plus Garcia vs Campbell, the trial by fire of the young boxer they call “KingRy,” who had to get off the canvas to then give fight fans a most spectacular liver shot knockout win. Check it out:

“Ioka came back strong in the second, establishing his presence with strong left hook counter shots as well as crisp combinations in close. This didn’t discourage Tanaka, however, who continued taking the fight to the champion, digging some heavy leather to the ribcage. The fight exhibited excellent back-and-forth action in the early rounds, with the kind of momentum swings that would lead one to conclude that whoever could make better adjustments down the stretch would emerge victorious. It wasn’t until late in round five that we saw any separation between the two warriors, as Ioka beat Tanaka to the punch with a vicious left hook that sent the challenger to the deck.”            From “Fight Report: Ioka vs Tanaka” by Alden Chodash
