TQBR Radio 8/5: Brandon Rios Vs. Diego Chaves Recap With Corey Erdman

The location pictured is potentially where boxing officials obtain their licenses, attend upper level certification meetings, shower, shave, and gather to plot the eventual demise of the sport (via).

Coincidentally, that “Shady Characters” picture just barely beat out a photo of referee Vic Drakulich being creepy as the featured image for this article.

Who would’ve thought that Jessie Vargas’ win over Anton Novikov would nearly be the saving grace of the HBO card headlined by Brandon Rios vs. Diego Chaves? But at least we got an entertaining, if not expected KO from Sergey Kovalev over Blake Caparello. Drakulich’s decision to pull the plug on Rios-Chaves when he did, resulting on a funky disqualification, set off many officiating watchdog alarms.

This week on Queensberry Rules Radio, Bad Left Hook‘s James Foley and Patrick Connor of TQBR welcome back Corey Erdman, analyst for The Fight Network and contributor to RingTV.
