Coming up tonight in Glendale, AZ it’s a Top Rank Boxing main event as current WBO featherweight champ Emanuel Navarrete moves up to 130 lb. and will fight Australian Liam Wilson for the WBO’s vacant title in that division. And, we talked all about it on the most recent “Big Fight Weekend Preview” podcast.

We previewed Navarrete-Wilson, including Wilson’s wild travel schedule to assure him of the fight and discussion of the controversy of Wilson coming in nearly four pounds under the limit and claiming a rigged scale to assist Navarrete.

We chatted about the quality co-feature between junior welterweights Arnold Barboza and Jose Pedraza and others you’ll see on the undercard.

A preview of doubleheader of Amanda Serrano-Erika Cruz for the undisputed women’s world featherweight belts and the co-feature of Alycia Baumgardner vs. Elhem Mekhaled for the undisputed women’s junior lightweight title and how impressive it is to have two undisputed title bouts on the same show and where the winners may go.

My interview with Berlanga. We discussed his free agency, what he’s looking for in a promoter, his view of the break up with Top Rank, the end of his KO streak, his recent performances, his desire to fight Canelo Alvarez and why he thinks it’s possible as well as other possible opponents, including his interest in Jaime Munguia and John Ryder, and more.

The David Benavidez-Caleb Plant kickoff news conference to promote their Showtime PPV fight on Thursday and why the presser was so disappointing.

The announcement of WBO interim heavyweight titlist Joe Joyce’s fight with Zhang Zhilei.
Showtime’s announcement of the Brandon Figueroa-Mark Magsayo tripleheader for March 4 and thoughts on the card.

A detailed discussion on what we think the announcement that Showtime will merge with Paramount+ might mean for its boxing franchise.

Memories on the 27th anniversary of the debut of the landmark HBO “Boxing After Dark” series that featured an all-time great main event between the young future Hall of Famer Marco Antonio Barrera and Kennedy McKinney in one of the best fights of the 1990s and one of the best I have ever seen.
