(Lack of substantial action in boxing has left a crater in our lives; via)
A dearth of high end boxing is like a full moon to fans, in that in brings out some sort of weird instinctual drama detector. We’ll find other ways to entertain ourselves, and sometimes it’s just not pretty.
Luckily, Benjamin Franklin and Al Gore (probably) helped invent podcasts, and a few of us will have stuff to do. For instance, this week on Queensberry Rules Radio, ESPN’s Brian Campbell joins James Foley of Bad Left Hook and TQBR’s Patrick Connor in just…talking about boxing. Likely on the agenda, however, will be the middling type of boxing cards from the last week or so, Zou Shiming’s return on another Macau card, Tyson Fury and Dereck Chisora’s co-headlining show, Saul “Canelo” Alvarez vs. Alfredo Angulo, and so forth.
