“On The Ropes” Boxing Radio return this week with host Jenna J to talk about all the latest news and stories in the sport of boxing. In this episode, I will be discussing the on going Mayweather-Pacquiao negotiations and the likelihood of the fight taking place on May 2nd. After weeks of talks, Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao appeared to be on the cusp of making what would be the biggest fight in the sport, but network deals and promotional issues appear to be delaying the deal and have left the fans with a lot of uncertainty. I also will be talking about the recently announced Spike TV Premier Boxing champions card, and the fights that will appear on that network.
