By Jenna J – “On The Ropes” Boxing Radio is back this week with host Jenna J to celebrate the show’s 200th installment. In this special episode I will be covering all the action that has been going on in boxing, starting with a recap of Saturday’s HBO card which featured the return of Julio Cesar Chavez Jr, as he fought tough contender, Brian Vera. After 10 hard fought rounds, Chavez Jr. was awarded a wide unanimous decision win, a decision that most boxing analysts and fans strongly disagreed with.
I will also be giving my thoughts on the fight between Adonis Stevenson and Tavoris Cloud in which Cloud was stopped at the end of the 7th round after being dominated from the opening bell. Aside from this I will talk about Alex Ariza’s move to the Robert Garcia Boxing Academy and what this means for fighters like Brandon Rios and Mikey Garcia. Finally I will talk about the rumors about the possibility of Amir Khan being Floyd Mayweather’s next opponent. Just click on the audio player to listen to the show!
The first guest to kick off this show is Brian Vera. Now being a few days removed from the event, Brian gives his thoughts on his bout with Chavez Jr. and if he still believes he was robbed of a victory. Vera also talks about Chavez as a fighter and what he hopes to do in the future.
The second guest of this show is Alex Ariza, the former strength and conditioning coach of Manny Pacquiao who is now working with Pacquiao’s next opponent, Brandon Rios. Ariza talks about the things that ended his stay at the Wildcard gym and what it’s like to work with a new stable of fighters.
Lastly this show features one of the most popular guest of “On The Ropes” radio, Floyd “Joy” Mayweather Sr. The renowned trainer makes his 25th appearance to the show to talk about his son, Floyd Mayweather Jr. and his recent bout with Canelo Alvarez.
