It’s Tuesday, so it’s podcast day!

  • First Half: Anthony Joshua is back, sure, and he may face Deontay Wilder finally, but is it STILL GOOD, or is it terrible and not even worth bothering? Navarrete vs Valdez delivered, but would a rematch be GOOD, or terrible and not even worth bothering? Richard Torrez Jr continues to fight guys who can’t possibly make him any better than he is, while the lower-ceiling Johnny Fisher had an undercard show stealer! Also John watched Showtime and was riveted.
  • Middle Segment: It’s mostly about Jimmy Buffett.
  • Second Half: Listen, there isn’t “F” all to talk about in this week’s boxing — Galal Yafai has a main event, YAY — so we spend a lot of time discussing Redneck Brawl 3: Hillbillies Get Wild! from the great state of West Virginia. And also the Yafai card and Friday’s OTX bill.
