“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!

This show kicks off with the return of heavyweight, Amir “Hardcore” Mansour, who is coming off an impressive stoppage victory over Kelvin Price. Amir talks about his latest win at age 41, and who he would like to face off with next, from potential fights with Tyson Fury, Deontay Wilder and Wladimir Klitschko.

The second guest is Floyd “Joy” Mayweather Sr. who makes his 26th appearance to “On the Ropes” to discuss the loss of Adrien Broner and expresses his desire to train the 24 year old and bring him back to the top. Mayweather also talks about his sons potential next opponent, as well as Pacquiao’s UD12 win over Brandon Rios.

The main guest on this episode is rising heavyweight contender, Tyson Fury. Tyson comes on to discuss Wladimir Klitschko’s recent interview on the 204th edition of “On The Ropes” and fires back a challenge to the reigning champ. Tyson also gives insight into the cancelled fights with David Haye, and lashes out at Haye for pulling out of the fight. Fury also gives his views on the now vacant WBC belt. Additionally, Tyson talks about boxing stars, Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Manny Pacquiao.

    Great program Jenna!

    I think it is silly to say that Vitali retired rather than fight Fury but Wlad is a different story. Tyson Fury would be a dangerous opponent for Wlad: Fury has a high work rate, he is too big for Wlad to lean on and more importantly he has a great inside game and that is the key to cracking the Wlad puzzle. Here is a quote from Wlad (and others) on Fury:

    Wladimir Klitschko (on Tyson Fury): “The new fighters are going to come up, look at Tyson Fury. I think he will make a lot of problems for a lot of guys in the top 10 to be honest. And understand he is at a certain age and he has certain qualities that he has to develop; and I think from fight to fight you will see how he will improve; But I think from fight to fight he is just going to get better”

    Kevin Johnson (on Tyson Fury): “I know it would be a beautiful fight [Vitali vs Fury] and on a scale of one to ten does he have a great chance of becoming the champion?; Yes, I’ll give him about a 7 ½ …and that’s better than I’ll give anybody.”

    Deontay Wilder (on Tyson Fury): “It only leaves Tyson Fury now…he’s been handling business, he keeps winning, and so now the best English heavyweight is Tyson Fury.”

    Naazim Richardson (on Tyson Fury): “This young man down the table, Mr. Fury, is a outstanding young fighter, is very big, has an exceptional reach…and I have a great deal of respect for him…and his history of boxing.” … “I just beg that you do not defang and declaw this young man, Fury is younger, he’s bigger, he’s taller, he’s stronger…all of these attributes, after the fight I don’t want to people to start saying things like he wasn’t real, he wasn’t this, he hasn’t done anything, he was a fraud. I don’t want to hear these things afterwards…”

    Steve Cunningham (on Tyson Fury): “Man, he [Fury] is just so big and he can fight, I thought that he was down for good when I dropped him but he just got up more determined.”
