On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman once again spoke with our colleagues Chris Baldwin of Angry Afro Radio
and Malissa Smith of Girlboxing
on the WAAR Room. A video of this discussion has also been posted on the Angry Afro Radio YouTube page
Our discussion took place Sunday, September 5.
We discussed the death of 18-year-old Jeanette Zacarias Zapata, who passed this week from injuries sustained in a bout in Montreal. We also discussed how WBC super featherweight champ Oscar Valdez, who failed a doping test for the WBC's Clean Boxing Program conducted by the Voluntary Anti-Doping Association, will still be allowed to fight and defend his WBC belt on September 10. And we addressed the startling controversy involving Amanda and Cindy Serrano and their trainer/manager Jordan Maldonado.
All this is part of our in-depth coverage of the corrupt world of boxing and sports governance in general.
