A pattern is emerging: 2014 is quickly becoming “the year where unlikely bouts become memorable struggles.” In two months, we had three fights with unlikely Fight of the Year smoke trails following them in Matthysse-Molina and Guerrero-Kamegai. And then Terence Crawford (above, right; via) toppling unbeaten Cuban almost-star Yuriorkis Gamboa had our blood flowing.
As usual, things happen in boxing, then opinionated people share their views on them — often with too much enthusiasm and sarcasm. This week on Queensberry Rules Radio, regular co-host Patrick Connor is joined by TQBR founder and Transnational Boxing Rankings Board chair Tim Starks. Also likely on the show’s schedule: a Saul “Canelo” Alvarez vs. Erislandy Lara preview, endless Golden Boy Promotions/Top Rank vs. Richard Schaefer/Al Haymon discussion, and more.
