On this week's edition of SecondsOut Radio, host Eddie Goldman speaks with some of the top pound-for-pound boxers in the world today.
The unbeaten Floyd Mayweather Jr. (35-0, 24 KOs) is regarded by many observers as standing atop boxing's mythical pound-for-pound rankings. His next fight will be against the welterweight champion of the world, Carlos Baldomir (43-9-6, 13 KOs), November 4 in Las Vegas. At a recent news conference at New York's Tavern on the Green, we spoke with both Mayweather and Baldomir, as well as Mayweather’s new promoter, the President of Goossen Tutor Promotions, Dan Goossen.
The unbeaten Laila Ali (22-0, 19 KOs) is also regarded by many observers as being the best female boxer in the world today. On November 11, she will be having her debut fight at New York's historic Madison Square Garden, where her legendary father, Muhammad Ali, had fought. While at this time her opponent has not yet been signed, we did speak with Laila Ali at a prefight news conference at the Garden last week to announce this event.
