Bad Left Hook Radio For This Week (and Sherdog Radio From Last Night)

We're just a couple of days away from the next episode of Bad Left Hook Radio, so if you would like to send in a question or topic for the show, just email me. It's in my profile. I'm tired of editing that mailto: stuff in. Antiquated, it is, this emailing.

It'll be a show built around fight previews this week, as I'll be talking about Jean Pascal vs Bernard Hopkins 2, Chad Dawson vs Adrian Diaconu, Juergen Braehmer vs Nathan Cleverly, and James DeGale vs George Groves, and of course some more news and all that.

I was also a guest last night on Sherdog Radio's Rewind with Lutfi Sariahmed talking about Jeff Lacy vs Nick Diaz. You can listen to that by clicking here. It's about a 10-minute segment that starts about 93 minutes into the show, and I'd like to thank Lutfi and Sherdog Radio Network for having me on.

Manny Pacquiao Back Home

Manny Pacquiao is back home in the Philippines and back to his job as a Congressman. Here's some video via the Telegraph:

As usual, watching politicians speak bores me, but at least this is short. It is mildly interesting to see Manny off the clock from the fight game and on the clock talking about health bills and the like.

Chuck Wepner Biopic to Star "24/7" Voice Liev Schreiber

The narrating voice of HBO's "24/7" series will star as Chuck Wepner in the upcoming biopic The Bleeder, with Naomi Watts and Christina Hendricks of "Mad Men" fame up for the role of his wife, Linda. Over his career, Wepner fought the likes of Muhammad Ali, George Foreman, Sonny Liston, Joe Bugner, and others, and inspired the script for Rocky. He was a colorful character and I hope the movie does him justice.
