On this week's edition of SecondsOut Radio, host Eddie Goldman begins by offering a commentary on several recent controversies related to health and safety issues for fighters. Discussed are fighters quitting in their bouts, open scoring, doping, boxing regulation, and the role of the boxing media.
We next begin to preview what will undoubtedly be the biggest fight of the year, the May 5 showdown in Las Vegas between the WBC 154-pound champion Oscar De La Hoya and Floyd Mayweather Jr., widely regarded as the best pound-for-pound fighter in boxing today. We got comments from both of them during the New York stop of their recent 11-city media tour.
