Rabbit Punches podcast 17: Joshua-Wilder, anyone?


Anthony Joshua vs. Deontay Wilder seems inevitable, but when? RING Magazine Editor Michael Rosenthal and U.K. Correspondent/Editor Tom Gray rake through the latest trash talk to extract an answer to that, and discuss the WBC’s proposals for open scoring and a new weight class for really, really big people. Also: more!

    Great news about the pod getting on Apple! Will the Fight Facts podcast be on there also?

    • Tom Gray

      Good question. Will try and get that looked into for you.

      • Dan Glozier

        Great, cheers Tom, appreciate it! Enjoyed the pod today, totally agree with yours and Mike’s take in regards to the changes the WBC proposed at the convention. Both think they’ll be detrimental more so than serve any good.

    Suleiman cares about money, and how much he can bring in to his sanctioning body.
    He sees dollar signs above the heads of the fighters he has ranked.
    Another division, more diamond, emerald, indian belts. It’s not about fighter safety.

    I love the idea of a Heavyweight division between 200-225lbs and then the Super Heavy Division above that. It used to be that the larger fighters often lacked the coordination and athleticism that a smaller man did. Now, there are too many really large guys that have both traits in abundance.

    Next time Tom – I dare you to ask Wilder if he keeps getting dressed in the dark 😉
