We here at Last Word on Sports are always looking for the latest way to bring our fans the best sports analysis and commentary in the industry. Today we bring good news to boxing fans. We have partnered with a boxing podcast with a uniquely Canadian flavour. Hosted by Canuckleheads Carlin Bardsley & Shawn W. Smith, each week, The Standing 8 Count will bring you plenty of boxing banter, commentary, and pugilistic prognostication!
This edition of the Standing 8 Count features a look back at the latest “Big Drama Show” from Gennady Golovkin, a star-making performance from Ramon “Chocolatito” Gonzalez, our classic fight of the week is Arturo Gatti-Micky Ward 1, and an interview with Tyson Cave who became a star after Teddy Atlas lost his mind on commentary when Cave was robbed of a decision in his December 2014 fight with Oscar Escandon. We have tons of fun on this week’s edition, so tune in for our unique brand of boxing banter and pugilistic prognostication!
