Call in # (646) 716-5404) - “On The Ropes” Radio returns with host Jenna J aka Boxing Girl and co-hosts Mark Messer, Nick Powers & weekly guest Rumsfeld in recapping a spectacular American victory overseas, and a showcase of some of the best male and female prospects in the sport today. In some cases, boxing is notorious for having fighters “returning to the scene of the crime” so to speak. This past weekend, one of America’s best Heavyweights “Fast” Eddie Chambers did just that, arriving at the site of his only professional loss in Germany to take on up-and-comer Alexander Dimitrenko for a mandatory shot at IBF, WBO and Ring Magazine Heavyweight Champion Wladimir Klitschko.. Chambers, who has been criticized in the past for letting fights slip away, won a decision over Dimitrenko in spectacular fashion, perhaps looking the best he ever has in the ring. We will review the upset, analyze Chambers’ status among today’s Heavyweights and a possible match-up between he and Klitschko down the line should Wladimir make it past mandatory challenger Alexander Povetkin in September. However, should Povetkin pull off a massive upset, it would set up a rematch for Chambers, and give him the chance to avenge his only defeat against Povetkin.

In addition, “On The Ropes” radio will bring you dual interviews with up-and-coming fighters NY Heavyweight Champion Darrel Madison, currently being guided through the ranks by Winky Promotions, and female fighter Lorissa Rivas with former/current trainer Jeff Mayweather. For the first time in two years, Jeff will be training Lorissa preceding their appearance on the program, as Jeff’s brother, Roger Mayweather, has recently trained her. Both fighters will be live to discuss their plans for establishing names in the sport of boxing, as well as outside activities used to establish their name value and raise awareness of their fighting careers.
Finally, OTR’s resident staff will preview the upcoming fights this weekend, the first of which is the return of former OTR guest Shaun George to Friday Night Fights, as he takes on Chris Henry in a 10 round Light Heavyweight contest. Then, Saturday July 11th features Steve “USS” Cunningham vs. Wayne “Big Truck” Braithwaite. Should the fight pan out the way most envision, it will possibly set up a rematch of Cunningham and Adamek’s 12 round Fight of the Year Candidate from last December. Also, Vic “Raging Bull” Darchinyan makes his debut in the Bantamweight division against IBF Champion Joseph “King Kong” Agbeko, hoping to win a world championship in his third weight class.
