The Bad Left Hook preview is back, and do we have a humdinger of a card to break down today.
2015 has not impressed so far in terms of high-level, relevant boxing matchups, but that's all about to change. The rest of the spring is dotted with compelling bouts such as Garcia-Peterson, Kovalev-Pascal, and some potential fight between two popular old guys--Merryweather and Parkio, or something? But in just one week's time we have what may be the gem of them all, another gradual step up in competitoni for fan-favorite Gennady Golovkin, who faces the durable and surprisingly crafty Martin Murray this Saturday, at 5:45 PM (EST) on HBO.
Kyle McLachlan and Connor Ruebusch of Bad Left Hook are here to preview that fight, as well as the trio of worthwhile bouts taking place on the undercard which, while it won't be broadcast on HBO, is certainly worth seeking out. Those fights are: #1 strawweight Hekkie Budler vs Jesus Silvestre, fan-friendly bantamweight Lee Haskins vs Omar Lamiri, and heavyweight prospect Hughie Fury vs tough gatekeeper Andriy Rudenko, who last year went the distance with the undefeated Lucas Browne. The undercard begins at 2:30 PM (EST).
