I told y’all this past weekend was a busy one for me. During my previous blog post I shared a post-fight video I took part of with Zaire from Big Gamers Small Talk podcast breaking down Andre Ward’s 8th round stoppage over Sergey Kovalev this past Saturday in Las Vegas. Well in this video, I took part in another discussion of Ward – Kovalev II w/Bo* and the folks from Truth & Facts Boxing. Bo is pretty much a regular now on the Pound 4 Pound Boxing Report podcast and given that I had some time on my hands, I was more than glad to take part on his show and discuss Ward’s win over Kovalev in their rematch. My first discussion with Zaire was fun and this video right here… just as much fun. Bottom, we got down!!!

 

*Bo is former amateur boxer and the host of Truth & Facts Boxing podcast/YouTube show as well as a regular on Da Muvement Boxing Podcast.

Talking #WardKovalev2 w/Zaire

As all boxing fans know the showcase fight of the weekend was the rematch between Andre Ward and Sergey Kovalev. Their first fight last November in Las Vegas was controversial to many. While Ward won a razor-thin unanimous decision (by one point on all three judges scorecards) to capture the WBA, WBO, and IBF Lt. Heavyweight titles, many felt that Kovalev deserved the verdict. In the aftermath there were screams of robbery and a demand for a rematch of one of the best fights of 2016.

Ward and Kovalev fought their highly anticipated rematch Saturday night once again in Las Vegas with Ward winning once again, this time by 8th round stoppage to retain his Lt. Heavyweight titles. However the controversy many felt was part of the first fight extended to the rematch as in the aftermath with a lot of people feeling that this time Ward (32-0, 16 KO’s) got away with low blows on Kovalev (30-2-1, 26 KO’s) that aided him en route to his victory.

Given a fight of this significance of this bout I was a busy brotha this weekend participating in two post-fight discussion of this rematch. This video is first of my post-fight discussions of the Ward – Kovalev rematch with Zaire*. While Zaire usually talks about all thing’s gaming, he is also a big boxing enthusiast (a former amateur boxing). Zaire and yours truly broke down Ward’s stoppage over Kovalev, discussed whether the bout was really controversial, talked whether Kovalev exposed as well as talked the future for Ward, the fighter known as “SOG” (Son On God).

Boxing fans are still buzzing over Anthony Joshua’s exciting and dramatic win over Wladimir Klitscho last night in front of 90,000 fans at Wembley Stadium in London to retain the IBF Heavyweight and capture the WBA (Super) Heavyweight titles. Immediately following the bout I hosted a YouTube forum to recap the bout. We also talked about the state of Heavyweight division, will we see a Joshua – Klitschko rematch and is Anthony Joshua now “the man” in the Heavyweight division?

What Defines Elite?

I always try to find time to talk about “The Sweet Science” and willing to have a dialogue with just about anyone. Last night I took part of a hangout/panel hosted by Bo from Truth & Facts About Boxing to discuss what defines elite in boxing and what separates it from being just great. We also talked about haters, stans, fanboys/fangirls and how they are often problematic. This was a fun, informative and interesting conversation that I took part in. I love the fact that I was able to engage in a conversation with some new folks that share a like-minded love of boxing, please take time out to listen.
