“On The Ropes” Boxing Radio is back! This time the show brings an installment of the Spotlight Series, in which I shine the light on boxers, events and news that have been flying under the radar. During this show I break down the events that unfolded over in England, with Carl “The Cobra” Froch defending his title belts against George Groves in a fight that delivered exciting moments, drama and a whole lot of controversy in regards to it’s ending. I will also be previewing the upcoming December 6th unification match between WBA featherweight champion Chris John and IBO featherweight champion Simpiwe Vetyeka.
The spotlight series show will feature two boxing guests. First up is heavyweight, Jason Gavern. He will be on to discuss his recent upset win over future Hall of Fame boxer, James Toney. Gavern surprised a lot of boxing fans with his performance in the Prizefighter Tournament, and with his runner up finish he has brought new life to his career and he is looking for a big fight. Besides talking about his bout with Toney, he also talked about the possibility of fighting Antonio Tarver and also gave his thoughts on the recent return of Manny Pacquiao.
Also on the show, we have former cruiserweight title challenger and bare-knuckle boxing champion, Bobby Gunn, who makes his debut to “On The Ropes.” Gunn has been given a shot to face boxing legend Roy Jones Jr. Bobby lets the fans know what they can expect from the fight, and also gives Roy Jones a message on why this bout will be no tune up fight. Bobby also talks in detail about his experience as a bare-knuckle boxer, and if he plans to continue with it in the future.
