“On The Ropes” Boxing Radio returns this week with host Jenna J to cap off a great year for the sport of boxing. In this episode I talk about the SHOWTIME bout that took place this past weekend, which was headlined by a welterweight bout between Marcos Maidana and Adrien Broner. In one of the biggest upsets of all of 2013, Marcos Maidana got a unanimous decision victory over the previously unbeaten Broner. I discuss the set back that Adrien faces now, and the future of Maidana. I will also give my views on the undercard of that event which featured the return of Keith “One Time” Thurman in his very impressive performance against Jesus Sotto Karass. Lastly, I will give the year end awards to the best performing fighters of this calendar year. Just click on the link below to listen to the show!
