Joining the show first is long time Showtime analyst, Steve Farhood. I get Steve’s views on the Mayweather-McGregor bout and what he felt of the event as a whole. Farhood also discusses the possibility of Anthony Joshua meeting Deontay Wilder in the ring in 2018 and who he would favor in that heavyweight showdown. Additionally, Steve Farhood talks about Saul Alvarez’ controversial draw with Gennady Golovkin and who he feels would win the rematch.
