It’s Tuesday, and it’s podcast day evening!

John and myself are back, just like boxing! And just like boxing, we’re only kinda back!

  • First Half: Artur Beterbiev returns to face Callum Smith this weekend! Is Father Time knocking on Beterbiev’s door? Plus a potential undercard sleeper (and world title fight)! ALSO: Anthony Joshua will face Francis Ngannou! Is this BAD or FINE?
  • Middle Segment: Concerts! First concerts, best concerts, and ranking the Traveling Wilburys!
  • Second Half: Vergil Ortiz Jr returned, but the story was all about referee Tony Weeks! Will Weeks officiate again? Is Vergil ready for a fight with Tim Tszyu? AND MORE! ALSO: Golden Boy is making moves and Ryan Garcia is faking moves!

As always, thank you for listening!
