SecondsOut Radio: Diego Corrales, Jose Luis Castillo, Vic Darchinyan, George Foreman, O’Neil Bell, Steve Cunningham, Shannon Briggs, Steven Duval 

On this week’s packed edition of SecondsOut Radio, host Eddie Goldman discusses the present, the past, and the future of boxing.

We speak with the lightweight champion Diego Corrales (40-3, 33 KOs) and his nemesis, Jose Luis Castillo (54-7-1, 47 KOs), who had the 2005 Fight of the Year, have split their first two fights, and now will go at it for the third time on Sat., June 3, in Las Vegas and in a bout televised in the U.S. on Showtime. We also speak with undefeated flyweight titleholder Vic Darchinyan (25-0, 20 KOs), who defends his belt against fellow unbeaten fighter Luis Maldonado (33-0-1, 25 KOs) on that same show. Corrales, Castillo, and Darchinyan all help preview their bouts.

A new organization known as Superfighter is trying to play a major role in the future of boxing. They are planning a series of eight-man, one-day tournaments made up of four-round fights. The first of these is slated to take place in the fall in Australia, and in the heavyweight division. Plans for this group were unveiled at a New York media conference last week.

Former two-time heavyweight champion of the world George Foreman is part of this group, and we spoke with him both about this new tournament, what is ailing the heavyweight division today, and where Superfighter fits in to the present-day quest to crown a new heavyweight champion of the world.

We also spoke with two fighters who were at this media conference who plan to compete in Superfighter: cruiserweight champion O’Neil Bell (26-1-1, 24 KOs) and undefeated top cruiserweight contender Steve Cunningham (19-0, 10 KOs). Both Bell and Cunningham explain why they plan to compete at heavyweight in this tournament.

Superfighter CEO and founder Steven Duval of Australia also explained how he sees his brainchild going and what plans he has for his organization.

Another heavyweight announced as being part of this tournament but not at the media conference was former top heavyweight Shannon Briggs (47-4-1, 41 KOs). In a comeback effort, he has reeled off 11 straight wins by knockout or TKO, including a stoppage win at the end of the third round this past Wednesday in New York. At ringside right after his fight, we got Briggs’s comments both on that fight and his immediate future plans.
