The Weekend That Was Podcast (No. 10)

Time for your boxing recap podcast to put all the weekend’s major fights in perspective as Alden Chodash is joined by Adam Abramowitz to assess Oscar Valdez’s huge knockout win over Miguel Berchelt, as well as Gabriel Flores Jr vs Jayson Velez, and David Avanesyan vs Josh Kelly. And a special bonus for our loyal listeners: Alden and Adam take an in-depth look at the long-awaited and long overdue rematch between Juan Francisco Estrada and Roman Gonzalez, slated for March 13th. Check it out:

“After what Berchelt and his corner must have thought was an altogether too short minute, the fifth began with the champion on his bicycle, trying to regain his legs, and perhaps his wits. “Show me something,” exhorted Mora, while a patient Valdez stalked the shaky Berchelt. Valdez seemed to know that the left hook would be the punch to close the show sooner or later, looking to set it up off the straight right to the body, but also timing a lunging Berchelt with the right hand for good measure. But as the smoke cleared from each of these punishing attacks, “The Scorpion” still came forward like the stuff of nightmares.”        From “Fight Report: Berchelt vs Valdez” by Harry Meyerson
