Hear About Jake Paul’s First Loss And Matias Becomes World Champ

Off the final weekend in February, we are back with a recap of Tommy Fury’s decision win over Jake Paul in Saudi Arabia Sunday night, as well as, the Saturday IBF vacant 140 lb. title victory for Subriel Matias over Jeremias Ponce in Minnesota.

It’s all part of the latest edition of the “Fight Freaks Unite Recap” podcast, as Dan Rafael joined me for the show out on Monday. Checkout the reaction to those two fight cards, some fight news and also some nostalgia involving late February anniversaries, including Mike Tyson.

From Dan’s description:

Here’s what we discussed on this episode (in order):

Matias’ all-out slugfest with Ponce, including discussion of Ponce’s corner with the surprising corner stoppage after the fifth round

The other Showtime bouts: welterweight Jamal James’ rout of Alberto Palmetta and where he stacks up in the division, and junior welterweight Elvis Rodriguez’s two-knockdown decision win over Joseph Adorno in a battle of one-time top prospects.

Everything you need to know about Fury’s split decision win over Paul in their 185-pound bout. Did it live up to the hype? Did it prove anything? Was the PPV worth it? Will there be a rematch?

Badou Jack’s 12th-round knockout of Ilunga Makabu to win the WBC cruiserweight title at age 39 in the entertaining co-feature.
