Tuesday is upon us, and the latest episode of Prophets of Goom is here!

This week John and myself (I’m Scott) take a look at another busy weekend ahead, including a major sleeper matchup in Spain on DAZN, David Benavidez and Janibek Alimkhanuly fighting for interim belts on Showtime and ESPN, respectively, Buatsi-Richards, John’s insistence that Tevin Farmer vs Mickey Bey is a real fight on actual pay-per-view, and more.

We also take a look back on Jermell Charlo’s big win over Brian Castano, Jaron “Boots” Ennis smashing up another opponent real good, Zurdo Ramirez’s need for a relevant fight and maybe to not gain 30 lbs overnight next time, Triller’s latest mess, and Martin Bakole beating Tony Yoka.

As always, thank you for listening!
