On this week's edition of SecondsOut Radio, host Eddie Goldman begins by commenting on some aspects of Ricky Hatton's impressive fourth-round knockout of Jose Luis Castillo this past Saturday in Las Vegas which others have overlooked.
We next focus on what should be a Super Saturday for boxing, July 7.
On that day, in Cologne Germany, IBF heavyweight champ Wladimir Klitschko will try to avenge his April 2004 loss to challenger Lamon Brewster in a title fight scheduled for 12 rounds. That fight will be screened in most countries as a live Internet pay-per-view on SecondsOut.tv, at http://www.secondsout.com/ppv. (The Internet pay-per-view will not be available in North America, Germany, and Russia.)
That same day, July 7, will see a clash of unbeaten fighters as WBA super welterweight champion Travis Simms (25-0, 19 KOs) puts his belt on the line against Joachim Alcine (28-0, 18 KOs). This fight headlines a card at the Arena at Harbor Yard in Bridgeport, Connecticut, not far from Simms's hometown of Norwalk, Connecticut. It will be shown live in the US on Showtime, and is promoted by Don King Productions.
This past Thursday there was a press conference in Bridgeport to kick off the promotion of this card. We were there and got a chance to speak with Travis Simms, Don King, and Scot X. Esdaile of the Connecticut NAACP, which is involved in supporting this event.
