Hear All About Artur Beterbiev + Alexis Rocha KO Wins
Off the weekend that saw unified light heavyweight champion Artur Beterbiev score another KO in a title fight, as he stopped Anthony Yarde Saturday in London, we are looking back on that fight and much more on the latest “Fight Freaks Unite Recap” podcast.
Insider Dan Rafael from BigFightWeekend.com joins me to go over the Russian’s latest defense and also, an entertaining Golden Boy Promotions card on DAZN Saturday headlined by welterweight Alexis Rocha’s big knockout of George Ashie.
Hear the podcast with analysis, news and even, some nostalgia on the near 30 year anniversary of Frankie Randall handing hall of fame legend Julio Cesar Chavez his first career loss back in 1994. Just click play below,
Here’s Dan’s description on what’s discussed
Full recap of Beterbiev’s action-packed slugfest with Yarde that ended in an eighth-round knockout victory and hopefully will set the stage for an undisputed title fight with Dmitry Bivol.
As outstanding as the main event was we had the grisly task of taking apart the sewage-like undercard that, among its failures, included having a 7-96-1 (you read that correctly) opponent in a televised bout two fights before the main event and an opponent in the “co-feature” who fell down in 23 seconds without being hit by a real punch.
The announcement (for the third time!) of the Jake Paul-Tommy Fury fight and their in-ring face off and interviews before the Beterbiev-Yarde bout.
Recap and thoughts on Rocha-Ashie and word from Golden Boy that it is talking to Terence Crawford about a deal and that Rocha might be his next opponent.
Discussion of the rest of the Rocha-Ashie card, including the up-and-coming lightweight blue-chip prospect Floyd Schofield’s win in the co-feature and the big KO win by Oscar Collazo in a strawweight eliminator.
Memories of Sunday’s 29th anniversary of Frankie Randall scoring one of the biggest upsets of the 1990s against Julio Cesar Chavez, who was the long-reigning WBC junior welterweight champion and 89-0-1 going into their fight that headlined the first-ever card at the MGM Grand Garden Arena. We chatted about the shock of that fight and the loaded PPV undercard, when it was normal to have deep PPV undercards and not the usual dreck we get these days.
