It’s Tuesday, so the latest episode of Prophets of Goom has arrived, and boy howdy it’s a big’un with John Hansen and myself, Scott Christ, with a lot to talk about following Dmitry Bivol’s upset win over Canelo Alvarez.

Will they do the rematch right away? Should Canelo do the rematch right away, or fight Gennadiy Golovkin in September as originally planned? Can Canelo solve the Bivol puzzle if and when they do fight again? And if it’s not Canelo next for Bivol, what does he do after a career-altering victory?

We get into all that, I get mad at DAZN, and we look ahead to a buuuunch of fights coming this weekend, with a particular focus of course on the undisputed championship rematch between Jermell Charlo and Brian Castano.

As always, thank you for listening!
