On the Ropes is back in action! Join me Jenna J, the Hostess, along with my Co-Host Nick Powers and my dynamic Producer/ Weekly Guest, the amazing Geoffrey Ciani (aka-Rumsfeld). This week’s episode will kick off with a discussion about the tougher than expected victory Juan Manuel Lopez had against the very game Rogers Mtagwa. We will share our thoughts on the potential fight of the year candidate and talk about where each fighter goes from here. We will also touch on the heavyweight contest which saw the undefeated Olandier Solis stop ring veteran Monte Barrett in two rounds as well as the long awaited return of Israel Vasquez who stopped Angel Antonio Priolo in the ninth..
Next up, we will have an exclusive live interview with former heavyweight contender “Baby” Joe Mesi. The undefeated heavyweight had an interesting career with many twists and turns. We will ask Joe about his career and talk about various moments from his experiences as a professional prize fighter. We will also be asking Joe about the various endeavors he has pursued outside the ring and get his opinion about the current heavyweight landscape.
Following that, we have another special interview with Super Six participant and reigning WBC super middleweight champion Carl Froch. We were recently afforded the opportunity to have a discussion with the busy pugilist as he was closing up preparations for his first round tournament match-up against Andre Dirrell. We got Froch’s opinions for his upcoming fight and asked him to discuss his views on the landscape of the very intriguing super middleweight tournament. We also discussed future plans with Froch and made many inquiries about various moments of his boxing career. Be sure to tune in for this pre-recorded interview to hear what Froch had to say.
Finally, we will be discussing some upcoming fights and the latest news on boxing. Obviously, this news will be highlighted with the upcoming first round matches in the super middleweight tournament. In addition to the Froch-Dirrell WBC Championship showdown, we will also be discussing the other contest slated to take place between former middleweight champions Jermain Taylor and Arthur Abraham. We will provide detailed analysis and predictions for these upcoming fights. We will also discuss the latest breaking news, highlighted by the signed Dec. 2 fight between Bernard Hopkins and Enrique Ornelas which will serve as a tune-up bout as Bernard prepared for his long awaited rematch with Roy Jones Junior.
