On this week's edition of SecondsOut Radio, host Eddie Goldman begins with a review of yet another of 2007's stellar fights: the stunning seventh-round stoppage by Kelly Pavlik (32-0, 29 KOs) of Jermain Taylor (27-1-1, 17 KOs) to capture the middleweight championship of the world. Pavlik won that title from Taylor Saturday, September 29, at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, New Jersey.
We spoke with a victorious Kelly Pavlik right after the postfight news conference to get his analysis of the fight itself and its significance. We also got a comment from promoter Bob Arum of Top Rank about what this fight means for boxing.
This coming Saturday, October 6, the super featherweight rematch between Manny Pacquiao (44-3-2, 35 KOs) and Marco Antonio Barrera (63-5, 42 KOs) also promises to be another memorable battle. This fight takes place at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino in Las Vegas and will be shown in the US on HBO Pay-Per-View.
We spoke with Marco Antonio Barrera on a media teleconference call about what to expect in what he has vowed will be the final fight of his storied career. We also spoke with Oscar De La Hoya of Golden Boy Promotions and Bob Arum about this fight and how boxing can better use the Internet.
We close with a comment about another important fight this Saturday when the newly-crowned WBC interim heavyweight champ Samuel Peter (28-1, 22 KOs) faces Jameel McCline (38-7-3, 23 KOs). This fight takes place at Madison Square Garden in New York and will be shown in the US on Showtime.
