Pre-Vacation Podcast
Andrew has a lot of news to go over before heading on a vacation (From the rest of his life, not just the podcast). Artur Beterbiev is the unified light-heavyweight champion after demolishing Joe Smith Jr. Is a fight with Dmitry Bivol in the future? After such an intense competitive fight the first time, how did Naoya Inoue brutalize Nonito Doniare in only two rounds in the rematch? With this victory does it make Inoue the best fighter Pound-For-Pound in the world and if it's not him, who is? Anthony Joshua has made some changes to his corner for his rematch with Oleksander Usyk but is Robert Garcia up to the job? All this and more.

Bivol vs Canelo Aftermath
Andrew returns with another podcast. Two legendary boxers have made headlines for the wrong reasons, but is one really to blame for the bad behavior of other people and is another avoiding acknowledgement of his own?

Down but Not Out
Andrew returns from a lengthy hiatus to give his thoughts on the Russian invasion of Ukraine and the courage of Ukranian boxers staying to fight; can Oleksander Usyk carry the weight of a whole nation and possibly continent into a rematch with Anthony Joshua later this year?  With Errol Spence and Yordenis Ugas, slated to unify the welterweight title, will the winner actually get to face Terence Crawford?  What listener mail sends our host back into the depths of depression? And how do you pronounce the leader of Russia's surname?  Andrew has the answer you've been dying to learn.   PLEASE leave a review and rating on iTunes for the BOXING 4 FREE podcast!

Conspiracy Theory
Andrew examines the dark web weaved by Tyson Fury to cheat Deontay Wilder out of the heavyweight championship of the world.  How do all these threads connect to one another and how do they relate to work of William Shakespeare?   Terence Crawford is one of the best fighters in the world and perhaps the best welterweight in the world.  So why does Bob Arum NOT want to promote him?  Is he just a grumpy old man or does our host find some sense in his words?   And the highly anticipated fight between Mike Tyson & Roy Jones Jr. is this weekend.  Andrew admits it IS something to look forward to, but are people getting too excited about something that might not live up to expectations?   PLEASE leave a review and rating on iTunes for the BOXING 4 FREE podcast!
