SecondsOut Radio: Acelino Freitas, Juan Diaz, Don King, Ronnie Shields, Oscar Suarez 

  • SecondsOut Radio with Eddie Goldman

  • On this week's edition of SecondsOut Radio, host Eddie Goldman previews the highly-anticipated title unification fight between WBO lightweight champion Acelino Freitas (38-1, 32 KOs), from Salvador, Brazil, and WBA lightweight champion Juan Diaz (31-0, 15 KOs), from Houston, Texas. This fight will take place this coming Saturday, April 28, at the Foxwoods Resort Casino in Mashantucket, Connecticut, and will be shown live in the U.S. on HBO.

    We spoke with both Freitas and Diaz at a recent New York news conference at the famed Friars Club. We also spoke with Don King, Diaz's promoter, about the controversy over whether the WBA would sanction this as a title unification bout. In addition, we spoke with the trainers, Ronnie Shields, who trains Diaz, and Oscar Suarez, who trains Freitas, about their approaches to this fight.

    Plus, we discuss how this latest episode of "Sanctioning Bodies Gone Wild" in the lightweight division once more highlights the need for the creation of an independent rankings poll by boxing journalists।
