Bad Left Hook Radio for June 30, 2011: Klitschko vs Haye Preview Show

We are less than a mere 48 hours away from three years of talk and hype coming to a head, as Wladimir Klitschko defends the world heavyweight championship in Hamburg, Germany, against David Haye on Saturday. That fight is the basis of this week's show and the closing segment is my preview and prediction for the fight, but there's plenty of other talk on the show, which runs just a hair or two over an hour this week. Topics!

  • Scoring for Felix Sturm vs Matthew Macklin and Devon Alexander vs Lucas Matthysse
  • Floyd Mayweather Jr vs Victor Ortiz -- Mayweather's tactics at this week's press conferences in both New York and Los Angeles, plus I try to just come fully clean with how I feel about Victor Ortiz as a boxing fan, and the reasons he bugs me, and also the reasons I like him and constantly fight myself trying to see the bright side of the young star, and believe it or not, I really do try to get there. Hopefully that will clear up any confusion, and make a bit clearer that I don't "hate" him, I just find him to be a little weird.
  • The fall PPV lineup and how each show could impact the rest, business-wise.

Sorry the show's a day late this week, but it's here. Enjoy and thanks as always for listening.
