We knew a while ago that Al Haymon would be entering the boxing fray with a pocket full of cash and television dates. Ever since, the debate has been about whether or not that’s a good thing, and how good the product would even be once it got here. And now it’s here.
Some may like to playfully call this headfirst leap the “Al Haymon Takeover,” or maybe even the “Haymonopoly.” On TQBR Radio, we respectfully refer to it as the “Al Haymon Death March Boxing-Killer Juxtaposition.” To be honest, we don’t know what that last word means, but without it, the phrase sounded childish.
This week on Queensberry Rules Radio, James Foley of Bad Left Hook and TQBR’s Patrick Connor welcome Compubox operator and historian Aris Pina to the show. From the Keith Thurman vs. Robert Guerrero card on NBC, to the Amnat Ruenroeng vs. Zou Shiming hardcore matchup on HBO2, and even to some boxing history, we just might scratch that itch for you.
