Shhh. Do you hear it? Do you feel it? That’s right: It’s an actual big fight week!

We’re back with another episode of Prophets of Goom this week and we’ve got a LOT on the plate, as we preview Oleksandr Usyk’s rematch with Anthony Joshua and more weekend action, discuss Adrien Broner’s withdrawal from Saturday’s Showtime card, plus Teofimo Lopez’s return this past weekend and more!

As always, thank you so much for listening! Tell your friends who don’t care about boxing and will wonder why you’re bothering them!

A quick rundown of the topics:

  • 0:20:50 Preview: Figueroa vs Lipinets, plus discussion of Adrien Broner’s withdrawal and the undercard bouts (Note: We recorded this before Figueroa vs Lipinets was official, and this section might sound a little choppy because I tried to edit it to where it wasn’t laborious to get through all the “I hear Lipinets, but I dunno!” stuff, which was just a mistake on our end, in hindsight we should have just talked about it as we knew it was going to be)
