August 13th marks the day that Peter Allen was hanged at Walton Prison for his part in murdering John Alan West. Allen and accomplice Gwynne Evans were the last two state executions in 1964.
More importantly, August 13th will also come to be significant as the day that Queensberry Rules Radio made an epic comeback following a week off! Some wept, some trembled, most vomited, and James Foley of Bad Left Hook and TQBR’s own Patrick Connor are back to stem that tide.
This week on TQBR Radio, James and Patrick recap last week’s ShoBox card — especially the awful KO scored by Deontay Wilder over Siarhei Liakhovich — and preview this weekend’s Friday Night Fights action, as well as the HBO Boxing After Dark card headlined by Nathan Cleverly vs. Sergey Kovalev. No guests, no rules… NO MERCY.
