20 Submitted by on Sat, 11 January 2014, 14:24

“On The Ropes” Boxing Radio returns this week with the first official show of 2014 to discuss all the recent news and stories in boxing. In this episode I will talk about all the headlines coming out of the heavyweight division. The division has been garnering attention ever since Vitali Klitschko vacated the WBC title and left a window open for the top contenders to fight for the belt. I will also talk about the possibility of Tyson Fury fighting Deontay Wilder and Dereck Chisora later this year. Lastly I will be giving my thoughts on what boxing needs to really go forward in 2014. Just click on the audio player to listen to the show!


The first guest on this weeks show is heavyweight contender, Dereck “Del Boy” Chisora. Chisora makes his return to the show to talk about the 4 TKO wins he got in 2013, and his desires to fight for a title in 2014. Dereck also talks about potentially having a rematch with fellow British fighter, Tyson Fury. Aside from this, Chisora talks about his diet and new found focus which he credits for his recent run of success.

The second fighter on this episode is Jean Pascal, who makes his 9th appearance to “On The Ropes.” Pascal discusses the preparation for his January 18th bout with Lucian Bute, which take place in Quebec, Canada, and is for the NABF light heavyweight title. Jean talks about the amount of attention that this fight has received in Canada what he hopes to accomplish after fighting Bute.

The main guest is former IBO and current IBF champ, Bernard “The Alien” Hopkins. Hopkins talks about still being successful at the age of 48 and what he tributes to his current run as a champion in the light heavyweight division. Bernard gives his views on the opponents he faced in 2013 and talks about potentially fighting Beibut Shumenov in his next bout. Lastly, Bernard Hopkins discusses the possibility of unifying the light heavyweight titles and if he thinks it is possible to accomplish despite the HBO and SHOWTIME rivalry.
