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!
The hits keep on coming on the Standing 8 Count. This week, Carlin and Shawn look back at the end of “Friday Night Fights”, look forward to Amir Khan vs. Chris Algieri and our classic fight of the week is Muhammad Ali vs. Sonny Liston 2, which celebrated it’s 50th anniversary. In addition, we are joined by Mark Turley, whose book “Journeymen” looks at one of the more unheralded aspects of the sport. Tune in for boxing banter and pugilistic prognostication!
