The complete audio from the May 16, 2021, edition of the WAAR Room on Angry Afro Radio, with DJ Tribal AKA Chris Baldwin and Eddie Goldman
is now up on the No Holds Barred Patreon page.
On May 16, Tyson Fury posted a short video confirming that he has agreed to fight Anthony Joshua for the undisputed heavyweight championship of the world on August 14 in Saudi Arabia. While some details remain to be finalized, it now appears that it is very likely that this fight will proceed and be officially announced shortly.
We discussed what this means for the heavyweight division, what could possibly go wrong with this fight, why undisputed world championships usually don't last long in boxing, some of the problems that may have been holding up the completion of these negotiations, political problems that may occur including opposition to this fight taking place in a country with such an abysmal human rights record, and much more.
In addition, we discussed the major fights that took place this weekend, including the significance of Brandon Figueroa's seventh-round knockout of Luis Nery in their super bantamweight title unification fight, the bizarre circumstances around the heavyweight "title" fight between Mahmoud "Manuel" Charr and Christopher Lovejoy, and much more.
