“On The Ropes” Boxing Radio returns this week with host Jenna J to discuss all the latest fights and fight news going on in the sport. In this installment of the show, I will be recapping ‘The Moment,’ the SHOWTIME PPV event that took place last Saturday night at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. I will talk about Floyd Mayweather’s 46th pro win as he edged the hard hitting Marcos Maidana by majority decision, and what we can expect from him in the coming future.
I will also be giving my thoughts on the under card of the event, which saw Amir Khan defeat Luis Collazo by a wide unanimous decision in his welterweight debut, and saw Adrien Broner make his comeback as he outworked Carlos Molina. Just click on the audio player to listen to the show!
This week’s first guest is the undefeated interim WBA welterweight champion, Keith ‘One Time’ Thurman. Keith discusses his last ring appearance which saw him take out veteran Julio Diaz in round 3, and if he was truly satisfied with the way the fight transpired. ‘One Time’ also gives his views on the man on top of the welterweight division — Floyd Mayweather Jr. — and if he believes the p4p king has lost a step. Lastly, Thurman talks about his future plans and who he has on his radar.
The main guest on this weeks show is renowned trainer and father of the sport’s number one fighter, Floyd Joy Mayweather Sr, who now makes his 29th appearance to “On The Ropes.” Floyd gives his insight on his son’s recent victory over Marcos Maidana and if he was happy with Floyd Jr’s performance. Mayweather Sr. also talks about a potential rematch with Marcos Maidana and what would be different the second time out. Lastly, Floyd speaks about a possible Pacquiao-Mayweather fight and if he believe Pacquiao stands a better chance against his son now.
