Hear More On Tyson-Douglas Anniversary And Fight Previews
On the latest edition of the “Big Fight Weekend Preview” our insider Dan Rafael and me took a look at the championship fight card in San Antonio, TX and a rising prospect headlining in the U.K. We also had to talk about the anniversary of boxing’s all-time biggest upset with Buster Douglas’ KO of “Iron” Mike Tyson.
You will get more on the two Saturday cards- Rey Vargas vs. O’Shaquie Foster for the vacant WBC junior lightweight title in the Showtime main event and Mario Barrios vs. Jovanie Santiago in the welterweight co-feature, as well as, hot-shot junior welterweight prospect Adam Azim vs. Santos Reyes, which headlines on Sky Sports in the United Kingdom (and is available via FITE in the United States).
We also covered plenty of news of the week, including the latest on the Gervonta Davis-Ryan Garcia contract soap opera and the announcement of the Matchroom Boxing/DAZN schedule through May, and looked back on the anniversary of the unforgettable Buster Douglas upset of Mike Tyson.
