Bad Left Hook Podcast #55 (April 18, 2016): Weekend recap

Scott recaps the weekend's action, including an impressive step forward from Errol Spence Jr, a not so impressive step sideways from Felix Verdejo, Soto Karass-Kamegai, Glowacki-Cunningham, Russell-Hyland, and much more.

Scott Christ is the managing editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2006.

Plenty of fights went down this past weekend, some good, some not so great, and there's a lot to talk about. Even flying solo this morning, I found I had about an hour's worth of stuff to say -- again, there were a lot of fights!

Topics include:

  • Full recaps and rundowns for ShoBox, PBC on NBC, Showtime Championship Boxing, Sky Sports boxing, the Solo Boxeo Tecate main event, and Golden Boy Live.
  • Errol Spence Jr's big showing against Chris Algieri, and his standing as perhaps the best single prospect in all of boxing.
  • Felix Verdejo's not so big showing on UniMás, and where he stands right now compared to a year ago, or even four months ago. Is he still the best lightweight prospect in boxing?
  • Was Jesus Soto Karass vs Yoshihiro Kamegai a great fight? Was Stuart Hall vs Rodrigo Guerrero almost as good as Soto Karass-Kamegai?
  • What was the name of the dumbo judge who gave Josh Warrington a shutout card against Hisashi Amagasa?
  • Who was I most annoyed with after the Marcus Browne-Radivoje Kaladjzic mess: two of the judges, the referee, or Kenny Rice?
