On the Ropes is back in action with our blissful host, the stunning Miss Jenna J, along with her co-hosts, Mark Messer and Nick Powers, and her special weekly guest, none other than yours truly (aka-Rumsfeld). Tune in as we discuss the latest news in boxing, including recaps of last weekend's fights underscored by Amir Khan's impressive victory against Andriy Kotelnik and Enzo Maccarinelli's crushing defeat at the hands of undefeated Denis Lebedev.. We will also touch on the latest news in the upcoming mega-bout between former pound for pound King, Floyd Mayweather Junior and Mexican warrior Juan Manuel Marquez. What is the big secret behind Floyd's rib injury and why the mystery behind the contractually agreed upon weight?
We also have three outstanding guests lined up for this edition:
Furst up will be undefeated cruiserweight/ESPN analyst, BJ Flores. Tune in to get Flores' unique perspective on the boxing business and his opinions on the current boxing landscape. We will also touch on his future and discuss his aspirations inside the ring and his thoughts pertaining to where he fits into the cruiserweight title picture.
Then we have heavyweight contender Fres Oquendo who is currently preparing for a July 24 showdown with former heavyweight champion, Bruce 'The Atlantic City Express' Seldon. Oquendo is trying to work his way back into the title picture after two failed attempts earlier in his career, including an extremely controversial loss against then IBF champion, Chris Byrd. Oquendo also recently suffered another disputable loss last December against James “Lights Out” Toney.
Finally, we will also be discussing the recent injury suffered by 'The Son of The Legend', Julio Cesar Chavez Junior which has forced Chavez to pull out of the upcoming “Latin Fury 10” fight card. Additionally, we will talk about 'Sugar' Shane Mosley's willingness to move all the way down to 140 pounds for the opportunity to face Manny Pacquiao. We will also briefly discuss other upcoming contests and any breaking news that might be revealed.
