After a 3-week hiatus, The neutral nook boxing podcast returned with episode 246. Host Michael Montero opined on united states of america Boxing’s resolution to delay the 2020 national Championships to next year over COVID issues, and the upcoming December combat time table. DAZN in specific has a loaded lineup featuring the ring returns of Anthony Joshua (Dec 12), Gennady Golovkin (Dec 18) and Canelo Alvarez (Dec 19).

overview and Preview:

On Saturday, November 14 in Las Vegas, Terence Crawford scored a TKO4 win over Kell Brook, whereas Joshua Franco and Andrew Moloney fought to a No resolution. The Nevada State Athletic commission (NSAC) ruled that an accidental headbutt caused hurt to Franco’s eye, which led to the stoppage of their super flyweight rematch. Montero, along with many others in the media, felt the damage turned into due to punches landed by means of Moloney (fifty one in keeping with CompuBox).

In London, Katie Taylor defeated Miriam Gutierrez to protect her undisputed lightweight title, prompting the Ring rankings Committee to stream Taylor into the desirable spot on the ladies’s pound for pound checklist. This determination angered some in the boxing community, who think Claressa Shields may still be #1. Montero argues that Taylor has fought the tons more advantageous opposition, together with victories over two opponents at the moment rated on the pound for pound record, and the latest undisputed welterweight champ. meanwhile, six of the eight world titles that Shields has received had been vacant, combating in divisions with very restrained talent.

On Friday, November 27, Panya Pradabsri scored an upset unanimous decision win over Chayaphon Moonsri in Thailand, taking the in the past undefeated Moonsri’s “0” within the manner. French heavyweight prospect Tony Yoka beat Christian Hammer, and Daniel Jacobs squeaked through Gabriel Rosado in Florida.

On Saturday, November 28, Joe Joyce stopped Daniel Dubois in a combat of undefeated heavyweight potentialities in London. Many fanatics, media and even some opponents themselves criticized Dubois for retiring after struggling an orbital bone fracture and nerve hurt to his left eye. Montero feels that criticism changed into unfair and hypocritical, especially from boxing lovers who complain about warring parties now not taking challenges and padding their statistics.

Later that evening in los angeles, Mike Tyson and Roy Jones fought an exhibition suit that resulted in a draw. within the co-characteristic, YouTube celebrity Jake Paul brutally knocked out former NBA megastar Nate Robinson. In an speedy, social media became bombarded with hilarious memes of the knockout, as well as complaints about Paul’s colossal battle purse. once once more, Montero called these complaints hypocritical, citing simple economics and the legislations of provide and demand. lots of those ranting about Paul’s exorbitant purse don’t appear to intellect when a mediocre heavyweight gets paid more than a world champion flyweight. The same goes for superstars like Floyd Mayweather, who ranked in tens of thousands and thousands of bucks while a couple of of his opponents were paid around 5% of the purse break up.

This Friday, December four, Billy Joe Saunders fights Martin Murray in London. On Saturday just backyard of Dallas, Texas, it’s the return of Errol Spence Jr. The unified welterweight titleholder faces former junior welterweight champion on Fox PPV. final October, Spence survived a horrible car accident. Many fans questions if he’ll ever be the equal. regardless of all of the uncertainty, Montero favors Spence to beat Garcia by using determination.

charges from the Callers:

the first caller spoke about Mike Tyson’s big name vigour, his accomplishments as a young fighter, and the way it’s all still significant today.

“Mike Tyson’s legacy because the youngest man to ever win the heavyweight title, will go down in boxing historical past as likely the toughest list to ever obtain. And we saw it this weekend when Dubois fought Joyce. which you could’t simply throw young guys to the lions, especially at heavyweight.”

Hamed from the united kingdom felt that Daniel Dubois’ administration failed him with poor matchmaking in advance of his fight with Joe Joyce.

“When the battle become first made, i used to be picked Dubois. all through battle week my heart became asserting Dubois but my head turned into announcing Joyce. for those who appear at the guys Dubois had fought, there become no person in the opposite corner that people felt would supply him hindrance. I consider he could have been matched up enhanced. seem at the guys Joyce has fought, like Jennings and Stiverne, perhaps not the highest quality opposition however at the least they have been seasoned professionals or former champions.”

One caller didn’t understand one of the most criticism over Jake Paul’s big purse for his fight towards Nate Robinson on the Tyson-Jones PPV card.

“people may still chill out man, it become just a fun little gimmicky combat. every person has to get so worked up. all of the boxing snobs complained, asserting that combat shouldn’t be on the cardboard, but they have been bringing in lots of the enthusiasts. That’s why Paul got the huge paycheck and bought loads of the headlines. That’s simply the fact of the situation.”
