A highlight from The 'Wrestling on a Corner while Previewing WWE's Survivor Series 2022' Episode

"Corner podcast kell dansby here with the old man Andreas hell. Hopefully you guys listen to our previous wrestling podcast from earlier in the week. We broke down AW everything that happened at full gear. So today it's all about WWE Survivor Series a full week of wrestling. Look at us. Look at us. For a second. Who would have thought, right? Talking wrestling all Thanksgiving week. It's what we have to be thankful for amongst other things you having a crying baby. Me having all my teenage children in the house spend all my damn money. It's been a great time for the holidays. Nothing better though than sitting here talking pro wrestling with all of you. Make sure you guys check out all of our content on YouTube, Apple, Spotify, wherever you guys listen to podcasts or watch us shout out to everyone here. Blue art studios in the wind resort for making the show what it is, if you're just tuning in for the first time, yes, we're talking pro wrestling today, but we also talk boxing, MMA, a little bit of hip hop. Everything going on in pop culture, sprinkled in on top. So it's been a wild ride. We talk about a little bit of everything, but today we're narrowly focused. Just so if you got the crib, if you're making your pot of greens, if you have Mac and cheese for your Thanksgiving, you know, we talked about this before. Some households do not. I'll pray for y'all. But if you're out there making your tuna casserole or green bean casserole or whatever you guys eat on Thanksgiving as well. Then throw this on and enjoy. We appreciate you all, Dre. You've been watching Survivor Series all day and week. We're Survivor Series is like 92. There's an infamously bad Survivor Series. There's the one where everyone died. So that one's that one's horrible. Survivor Series is one of my favorite themed pay per views, but it's the one that goes wrong more often than any other. Well, yeah, I mean, it has some stinkers. The early formula was great, like the elimination matches, and then they kind of went away from it. Then it just became wrestling matches. It was like, why is it still cost Survivor Series? The brand split had somewhere like ultimates vir and it was like well, I just watched two crazy things. It was 2000 14 survivor series. There's one the Ziggler one. Just the authorities, seen his team versus the authority and the authority edit this band. I almost forgot. Sting. There's a reason why Dolph Ziggler won. And I was like, wow, what a shitty run for sting and WWE. That was horrible. It was awful. Worse because now we see what he's doing in age. Yeah, and I was like, damn, you blew it. Yeah. Jumping off his shit. There's like some really bad Survivor Series. And there's, but now you know, we get into war games, but like I was watching the old Survivor Series and they were fun. Like this is the rockers wearing a lot of them. There was one is you couldn't do today. It was Jerry Jerry Lawler in the tiny people against doink the clown in like dink and his clones. It was like, it was so fucking bad. I was like, what am I? I can't believe I'm watching this shit. It's so bad. You had Survivor Series teams that just did make any sense? No, but it's like what the enemy or the friend of my enemy is my friend. That's how it usually works. All right, my enemy is my friend. So there is one, oh, what year is this? 93? Okay, big boss man was a baby face. One of the worst baby faces ever. That sounds horrible. Tom county police department has never be a baby face in my book. But it's a big boss man versus nails. You remember nails? I do not know who nails is. So nails. This guy was a terrible promo. But he was locked up by the big boss man. And he gets out of jail. For whatever reason he's still wearing his jumpsuit everywhere he goes. Okay. But he's like, his angle is, I was wrongfully arrested and sent to jail because the big boss man, I want to get revenge. And people are like, boo, nails. And I was like, he's the baby. He's the baby face. And his promos are so bad. Like nails is like, he drools and spits and his teeth are terrible, and he's black? That is white. Oh. And he's got this orange jumpsuit on everywhere he goes. I think when he debuted at like handcuffs and big boss was, yeah, boy. Yeah, boy, and I was like, that's a heel. Big boss man is always been a heel in my book. This McMahon has done some wild shit in his life. He thought that was good shit. It was like, oh, cop county police, there's the heroes. And I was like, that's so bad. So that was one that I was like, this is bad. I think it was Jake's a snake. Bit by that snake? Yes. And I was watching it. And I remember how traumatized I was as a kid, 'cause I was like, yo, let's snake really bit macho man. It must have been was bleeding like for real. And I was like, who allowed this shit to happen? Elena watch that?

A highlight from Boxing with Chris Mannix - Tank Davis vs. Ryan Garcia, It's finally on

"Boxing with Chris Manning. How's somebody punch him in the face? Anthony Joshua is a composed and ferocious finisher. Watch this. Hosted by SI's Chris mannix. That was my moment. Now with interviews, analysis and everything going on in the world of boxing. When you have talent, you are given another chance. Here's Chris mannix. And we are back boxing with Chris Maddox part of the volume sports podcast network. Big show for you today. Regis prograde, the former 140 pound champion he joins the program a little bit later on. He is finally getting another opportunity to fight for 140 pound belt. Three years after he lost his title in a close match against Josh Taylor, talked about him about that. And several other things. But it's been a pretty busy week in boxing with a major event announced. Ryan García tank Davis terms have been agreed to. Network deals have been aligned and we are going to get Ryan García tank Davis. Assuming both of these guys get through interim fights, which are scheduled to take place in January. Talk about that in a lot of other topics. One of my good friends in this business, the co host of the disowned boxing show with aachen baraki is ak himself and he joins me on the show. I think that there's no better time to bring you back than when Giovanni Davis finally books a big fight because I know as an average of supporter. I know you were reaching your breaking point here. Like you were kind of on the brink of abandoning your javonte support if he had not booked this fight. I almost, first of all, thanks for having me on the show. I was mother jump on that Chris mannix band where I gave for a second, but I said, let me hold on something is gonna happen and it did. It did. And we are gonna get Garcia versus Davis, presumably in April, just to run through some of the deal points. The financial terms between javonte and Ryan have been agreed to for weeks now. I was reporting it back in late October that they had reached an agreement on the financial aspect. It took a couple more weeks for the networks to get aligned. This is going to be a showtime pay per view. Showtime will produce and distribute it to zone, will be paid some kind of 7 figure fee and retain the right to sell the pay per view on the disown app that is own platform, everything that dis zone does. So, you know, we were just, you know, just a couple of weeks after we lost out on Spence Crawford, we get tank versus Ryan. Give me a reaction to this deal being all but signed sealed and delivered. Yeah, well, I mean, that part alone always worries me just a tad bit. You know, unless fighters sign on the dotted line, I could never really take that to the bank. So, but you would, here's the benefit of having an interim fight, right? Those guys. So you build up more momentum, you know, guys get excited because you're watching a fight with the Apple card could be upset here. So it creates more anticipation for the showdown in April. So I like both guys fighting, but there's always a flip side today. There's always somebody can get hurt, but it's a cut, a headbutt. Somebody could lose. I mean, it's unlikely to happen, but it's a possibility, but I like the risk. I think risk is okay, both guys, even though javonte is interim fighters is no walk in the park. You know, that's a tough fight. That's a real fight. And those are the type of fights where I don't think you would give javonte a credit because of, you know, he's not fighting a household name. But Chris, be honest on this one. Is this fight that javonte is fighting in January 7th? Is that a risky fight? It's a risky fight because he's going up against Hector Garcia who is one of the hottest guys right now at one 30. He's going to be facing a physically smaller man, but javonte is not a big guy to begin with. But Hector Garcia is coming off a 2022 where he beat Chris Colbert and he beat roger Gutierrez. Those are two high quality wins. The point is if like if Hector Garcia had picked up one more win in December at a high level, he'd be in the conversation for fighter of the year. He wouldn't win it, but he would probably be top 5 top 7, whatever it may be because he'd have three quality wins. You would have kind of in a way a bam Rodriguez type of year. So this is a really good fight. And I give javonte a lot of credit. I mean, I don't, I don't love that there is an interim fight taking place. And this I was told was because Ryan García requested it. Ryan García did not want to fight on January 7th, didn't believe there was enough training time, didn't it be there was enough time to get his body down to one 36. So it's from what I understand. It's on Ryan García this fight is going to take place in April, but this is a real fight for javonte Davis, and I'm very curious to see who Ryan García takes on in his interim fight. I know Joe goosens a smart guy. He's going to have some ideas about who he should face. I mean, it's kind of amazingly Javier fortuna would have been the right guy for this, right? Because he's kind of a heavy ish handed southpaw, former title holder, I don't want to say javonte is a much better fighter than fortune. But he kind of resembles him a little bit. What do you think about Ryan? What should he be looking for? Look, he took care of business already. I mean, I like, now, I think that javonte set the bar. Javonte is not fighting a soft touch. He's fighting a real opponent. Undefeated fighter that like to your point, it's a smaller garbage. He's not a big guy. So I think he's putting a little pressure on Ryan now. Look, Ryan, you know, can't fight the Uber driver going to arena. He has to fight a real fight now because there's that measuring stick. A name that comes to mind and obviously he's tied up and talks in order to fight Shakur Stevenson. I'm talking about Pitbull crews. I mean, I know it's a tough risky fight. I know that wouldn't be an intro fight, but honestly, if that fight was announced for Ryan García, I wouldn't be upset. And I would have Ryan as a favorite in that fight. So that's the name that jumps at jumps out at me for right for Ryan García for January. But I don't see that fight happening. I think he has to be strategic. You know, you brought up earlier as a great experience trainer, Joe goose, and it's going to pick the right opponent, but I like him fighting a softball. I would like him to fight a guy that, you know, that nobody's going to resemble a guy like tech, but at least the stance, you know, get them all up and ready, but it has to be an exciting fight, man. I'm curious. I don't know what direction those guys are going. Yeah, I was talking to somebody in Garcia's camp on Monday. And they were just kind of beginning the process. I think January 21st is going to be the date for Ryan to come back in his tune up fight. And Ryan, he can't wait till April, like he just gets to antsy and to win to his own head that I think it's good that he's going to get out one more time before April. The name that I've been coming back to is someone that's not a household name, but fits the criteria for what you're looking for. Jezero Corrales is the name that I keep circling back to. He's a former 130 pound champion. He's a southpaw. He's riding a three fight winning streak coming off a pretty impressive win. His last time out. He's about 5 foot 6, which puts him in the range of height for javonte Davis. He's not powerful. He's only got ten knockouts on his resume, but that's good if you're Ryan García. You don't want to take on somebody with some real pop behind them. And I think corales, because it's yet another southpaw that Garcia would face because he has some of the same physical dimensions. I think a guy like him makes

A highlight from The 'Wrestling on a Corner reviewing AEW's Full Gear 2022' Episode

"On the corner what up everybody. Welcome to another episode of the corner podcast. Kel Dan's been here with the old man Andreas hell. Thanksgiving week. We are recording this on Tuesday because we're gonna chill with our families, eat a bunch of food, hang out this weekend, but we didn't want to leave you guys without a show. So two pro wrestling shows this week. This one today we'll be talking about AW recapping full gear that happened over the weekend. What's going to be the fallout? We're going to make our predictions going into whatever they name their December mini show. There's too many names. Winter. Winter is coming. All right, cool. Game of Thrones is three years ago, bro. I get it. Cool. Winter is coming is the show in December. We're going to preview everything going there. Some of the fallout from full gear. And our second wrestling show later on in the week, we are talking WWE and we're going to preview Survivor Series. One of our favorite pay per views every year. I'm sure the old man has started his watch of every Survivor Series. I have ever. It's just going currently on loop on his television. So we'll talk about Survivor Series. Future Past, a little bit of everything when we get to that show later on in the week. It's your first time listening. Here we talk pro wrestling, like we're going to do this week. MMA and boxing with a little hip hop current events, all that good stuff, sprinkled in along the way. Make sure you guys check out our YouTube for our shows to see our pretty faces here. That blue wire studios in the wind resort Trey. It's all wrestling. None of that other stuff this week. All wrestling AW had the week into itself, Saturday night, had it on the big TV. I put the influencer boxing on the side TVs. What a shit show that was. Entertaining though. Had a blast. KSI's gonna fight Dylan dadis. Is he? Is going to show up? It's going to show up. Is he? Yeah, I don't think he knows how to fight. He doesn't know the fight, man. You practitioner, they're putting in a boxing ring. Man, it's a faucet, it's 2019. He said two pro MMA fights. When both of them buy a submission. Yeah. In case I was like, yeah, I'll fight you. I'm box him. Man has no hands. Being Connor's friend is his biggest claim to fame. Yeah, he used to get the break speed off of him. That's not going to be good. Anyway. So, that took the side for the moment on Saturday night. It was all about AEW, full gear. How we start all of these off, what is your grade since you're the hardest greater in the world? What is your grade for the full paper read? I'd give it a B plus. I thought this was a really good pay per view. There was only there was one match that wasn't good. Some of the results were surprising. But I think everything worked for different reasons. One of my least favorite messages was the main event. But everything else I thought, as we go through this card, I give it a B plus. It wasn't their best show. I think they got to where the destination that they've been planning to go for like the past 6 months by putting the title on MJF, who gave it phenomenal media scrum. Basically just went off on the median left. But other than that, yeah, there was not a lot to complain about on this show. Is that because level of expectations or because it was a great show? No. It was a great show. This was a, this was a really good show because the expectation, I never had a low expectation. I just thought the build kind of sucked. Yeah. Would lower some people's expectations. Yeah, I never doubted the match quality. And some matches were way better than I expected them to be. Okay. So B plus. Yeah, I give it a B plus. What about you? I'm teetering between a and a minus. Mine is based off an expectation level.

A highlight from UFC Vegas | Munguia Coria Mismatch | Corruption w/ Cortes Lopez | Ryan Garcia Tank Davis Announced

"Fresh off the doctor Atlas foundation dinner in Staten Island, a huge sold out success. Teddy great to see you. Yeah, it's good seeing you, Ken, you and rob we're there. Appreciate very much and a thousand people were there, and about 40 celebrities were there. And I was as you said it was 26 annual Atlas foundation dinner del. Our main fundraiser to help raise money to take care of the people that fall through the cracks and all, and our world sometimes, you know, whether it's to get a handicap at one for a single mom that struggling in a apartment, she can't get something like that done to cause of it. Obviously it's not covered by any insurance. So we step in, we do it. She has an invalid child, you know, whatever the situation put an handicap. So flying people out of state to get a better treatment program when their program locally doesn't take care of it properly. We'll do that. We also put them up in our hotel to find out of the eligible while they're out of state. You know, whatever it takes social programs going into areas where there's a need to help these kids where we're telling them, hey, you know, if you improve your conduct, if you start cannabis who you are, that's all, I'm not asking phase and B it's just because if you camp out who you are, then you're going to get better marks. If you start to take ownership over your own behavior, you're going to do better. It's going to show itself in a better way everywhere. And what people need to know, it's going to help us. It's going to help people say, oh, you're helping people. I'm helping us. I'm helping my family because the better the communities are, the better that these kids are, the better everyone is. You know, because that trickles down everywhere. I don't want to kids anywhere, struggling and, you know, being involved in violence and those kind of things, if we can have a little say about it and help in the way we help with those social programs that Doc that social programs, you know, we tell the kids, okay, StuG can about who you are, take ownership over who you all make the right choices each day. How are you going to behave? When you come into school, when you leave your house and we're going to drop off 200 tickets to a Yankee game tour meds came to a next game to a nets game. You know, whatever this season is, we're going to do that and we're going to supply buses and you're going to go to the game. You teach going to put you on a list if you're one of those kids who have shown that kind of improvement in cad to improve. Otherwise you're not going. And a lot of these kids obviously one of the big problems, one of the elephants in a room can is that they don't have fathers. There's no fathers. I'm not afraid to say that. I'm not afraid of vanilla freaking room because I'm out there. We're out there. I'm doing a tiny little something I get it. There's plenty of people doing more than me. But we are doing a little tiny something. And we're out there seeing what the problems are, where there are no fathers at home, for the most part. And a lot of the heaviest where we're out there trying to do what we're doing. And bring a need to and what was it doing mental health programs going into these neighborhoods where we're bringing psychiatrists, psychologists, we're bringing therapists to these at risk schools where there's a lot of violence where there's teen suicide with this bullying where there's drug problems. These things are needed. These things are needed. So anyway, we can't do it without the resources. And the resources means that we have to get people to come to our events and give us the money to do such programs. And to take care of people in a way that we want to take care of them. So and I always tell people, it's a collective effort. You know, people say, oh, thank you, teddy. Now don't take me. Well, who do I think, Ted? Thank thousands of people you probably never going to meet. That give me the ability, trust me, by giving me the ability to get it to the right places. That's who you think. Say a prayer tonight, thank them. Not me. Not this guy with a flat nose. So I appreciate the heck out of everybody. I appreciate the heck out of you guys. We had we had to celebrities like New York Giants, great and Hall of Famer Harry Carson, Super Bowl MVP, Phil Simms, Max Kellerman, the greatest basketball commentator, probably one of the maybe the greatest commentator period full-time Marv Albert, you know, and then the great and funny Tracy Morgan, another former New York giant Super Bowl MVP on Ken, OJ Anderson was there. You know, like I said, Phil Simms, Larry Michael is the great commentator, real common data. Brian Kenney talked about real commentator bob papa. Again, Sid Rosenberg has a great radio show. The great singer. I know you must have loved him, Ken, from the phantom of the opera. Kieran Sheehan. I mean, he's got a voice. Only God could have allowed him to have that voice. I mean, it's when he opens his mouth. What I like, but I get a kick out of now, is when he opens up his mouth and starts to sing, I look around the room, and this is what I see. I see people's jaw drop like, oh my God, is that coming from that man? And then former Yankee grade Mike pegs, paglia ruler you saw him, I think he was Sydney. And then of course you and rob were good enough to be there. Again, it means a lot to me. I'm glad you two came into my life. Thank you, teddy. No, let's not forget the two toughest guys there at chuck zito and I didn't get there. I didn't get that. I didn't get to. And one of the biggest truck seater was there. But one of the biggest receptions in a room was for dozen Poirier. You actually thought I could forget this man. Who simply put and I want to, I want to put this into what I think is proper context. By coming there, after he had an incredible fight, 5 days earlier, and Madison Square Garden could have been easy to just go home to Louisiana. He stayed here. No, no, no. He did go home. He flew back. Well, even better. And he flies back, I didn't realize that. He flies back after that top 5 with Chandler. And he showed for me, and this is another one of those teaching moments, I think. What his greatest talent and ability is and always has been. You know, not as great punching power, obviously he's got that. Or his great chin, obviously he's got that. Well, his great heart obviously he's got that. Well, it's great finishing ability or his great wrestling or jiu-jitsu, as he said after the fight, I know judson, you know, even like I said, his great toughness. It's his character. You know, as a person, that's his true cause strength. I think that's all our truth caused right really if you get down to it. His strength is a human being to be to just be decent. You know, and unwilling to submit tomorrow weakness. Outside of the ring, what I mean by this is, you know, he's got an unyielding

A highlight from The 'Wrestling on a Corner going Full Gear toward a Confusing PPV' Episode

"You know what that means. It means it's pro wrestling on the show today. We told you earlier in the week. It's all about AW full gear. We're going to preview the entire card today, give our predictions, talk about AW dynamite that happened earlier in the week. A little bit weird there. But if you guys are first tuning into our show on the quarter podcast we talk boxing pro wrestling and MMA mixed with a little bit of hip hop and current events, whatever crosses our timeline, but today is all pro wrestling. All about the wrestling all about full gear. Cold baby. You look like the ultimate heel, you would not fit in an AW right now because we don't know who our heels who are faces who are tweeners, what is going on in this promotion, Dre, you once sat in this chair, Tony Kahn sat where I'm at right here. It was all sunshine and rainbows, hour long conversation. Turns out, that was the last night of happiness. This man may have had. That literally all went to shit after our interview. After that, damn. Cole cursed him. It was cold small. Yeah, sorry, guys. Sorry, Tony. Yeah, I mean, literally that was the last interview that he did. The last major interview before the world went to shit. Yep. And we were there and watched the shit start to burn. You wouldn't call backstage for like four hours. Yep, me and Cole, like, huh? And he's like, oh, I got you guys. In a second, I don't have a meeting real quick. Oh, hey, there goes MJF. Next thing we know all these damn dirt seats pop up and MJF is leaving and it hasn't been the same since. So when double or nothing is here next year, it'll be the one year anniversary of bringing Tony back. Boy, what a conversation we're about to have with him. Lot changes in the year and pro wrestling. Especially there. Yeah, I mean, stuff changes in a couple of weeks. One of the things that's changed a lot for AEW, the number of injuries. Weekly TV lends itself to a large amount of injuries. They're going through it. I don't think because people say, well, WWE injuries. Yeah, they did, but this is, I was looking at the list of injuries over the past year, this is bad. Hey man, I don't page. CM Punk obviously. Multiple times. Several. You had Kenny Omega. You can't forget Kenny was hurt. Adam Cole. Scorpio sky. Chris stat lander, red velvet, Layla hearse. Christian cage, ruby Riott. Ruby Soho Ho. That's ten. Ricky stars didn't get cleared last week so he could wrestle the Lance archer. So he's coming back on Friday. One of FTR with her, but they battled through it. Dex. No, both of them got hurt. Yeah, but Dax went on like his solo run at first. Yeah, 'cause cash got her. Because cash got hurt and they were like, just trying to space it out and let him get some time to heal. Everybody in that company that has been in a major angle. Phoenix got her. Yeah, Ralph, yes. And they don't even do house shows. Like WWE has injuries at house shows when Seth Rollins blew his knee out. It was a house show with Kane, trying to apologize. Kevin Owens just got hurt at a house show. But they don't even do house shows. It's just a Danielson got hurt. Like you go through the list, it's like, yeah, we're gonna be critical of the booking, but fuck. It's like doing a TV show and you have to do the show, but all the actors are gone. Yeah. And it's like, we just gotta do a new story. Yeah, like one person, like doing Mary with children and everybody's out except for Kelly Bundy. It's like, what are we gonna do here? There's worse people to be left around. Cole. I asked you this then. To jump on Dre's train of thought. Is this a sustainable model for AW on television? Is this wrestling style maintainable for television? Weekly TV. Did the WWE dumb down style of wrestling? Is that a necessity? Because maybe you can't do all this crazy shit weekend and week

If you're first time listening on the corner podcast we talk MMA boxing pro wrestling and a sprinkle of hip hop pop culture, whatever's going on in the world. From right here, blue wire studios in the wind resort Las Vegas, Dre, that sprinkle of pop culture today. Is we're taking a shot, you're lucky, I'm not pouring one out. We got to take a shot. For Twitter, man. It might be over. It might be the end of it, so let's grab our shots. Here we go. All right. What is this a shadow before I drink this? You'll be all right. That's all that's all you need. To Twitter, we ain't pour one out. You don't got no bald liquor. But we're taking a shot. And I was what? I was born in a shot. Yeah, yeah, yeah, it was a little bit much. Yeah, I should have warned you about that. What was that? Some type of whisky. Whisky, you sip whisky, I don't know that. That's a burger whisky. Yeah, listen man, it's tough. I grabbed the first bottle I saw. This is tear my eye Dre, 'cause Twitter may be gone. $200 dates. 20 Twitter ain't gone. Listen, man. It could be if it shuts down over the weekend. 200 dollar dates at. It's not gonna shut down over the weekend. Look, at everybody was broke back then. That was like the best topic on Twitter. Black Twitter history. Zola, Black Lives Matter, deaths were shared on Twitter before anywhere else. Oh, yeah. The way information is disseminated, it's not going to die. People are maybe leaving, I give it about a year because something else, 75% of staff in a day. Yeah, but I guarantee you there's people that are out there that want money. I will take that job. Yeah. It's not going to die, but I think we're seeing the final days, just like when you saw MySpace was going down, you were like, yeah. You started watching the ship, and then it was like, hey, there's this thing called Twitter. Everybody was like, we gotta take all your pictures down and shit. Like, I need all these. Yeah, I don't think it's gonna die, but yeah. Boy, Elon Musk is just, he just knows how to fuck up a ship. Quick. This man jumped on the Titanic and just tried to drive it into an iceberg. He's like, this is a cool ship. We're gonna go. Crazy. What's your favorite moment? I would say, for me, it's specifically like black Twitter moment, but we go open this up. What's your favorite Twitter moment? And I have a sports moment though. Maddie Pacquiao got knocked out by Mark. That was my first fight. When did you join Twitter? 2009? You were in the O 9. Okay. My Twitter tells me, I think it was like October 2009. Yeah. There's people there like January 2009 or like 2008. I wasn't there then. But I mean, I remember the officially ices who blew up from there with Joe budden is crew with amani and they were throwing fucking pool parties and everything wild. It was lawless back then. I've been on Twitter since November of 2008. Oh, yeah. I told you after that. I can tell you the day that I joined. I was working to BET and me in low key were at a party. Your low key got Twitter famous. Yeah. Blew up. Me, low key, we're at a party. This is when we're all there. Me low key, Chris Fox. I don't think kaz was there. We were at no, we're at his election day, I think. We ended up at Q tips Obama party. And I can't remember who said it. It might have been Q tip. It's like, oh, there's this new thing where you can just kind of talk about whatever in real time. And me and lo signed up that day. And we were like, oh, this Twitter thing, and we didn't have any followers. But when you asked about some of my favorite Twitter moments, I bring up Chris Fox, anybody knows Fox and it was on Twitter early. Chris Fox was famous for getting into a verbal war with diddy on Twitter. It was the first time that we realized he said he was going to slap him. No, I can't remember what it was. Fox was already Disney said he was gonna slap far. It might have been that. Pretty sure that's how it played out. And we're at the same place that Fox was like, man, fuck, did he? And he was like, tweet. And this before we understood the reach of Twitter, like, shit, when I left BT, that blew up on Twitter. I think I got like 8000 followers in a day off of that shit. But it was like, he would go ahead, diddy and did he respond to her? Like, oh. They can see this. The world is closer. And that's one of my favorite moments Temecula, obviously. Oh, meet me in Temecula was golden. Not one of my favorite moments, but you saw a movement start. It was literally Black Lives Matter, which ray von Martin passed watching that shit happen in real time. Well, Michael Jackson died. Yes. Twitter broke. I'll never remember the whale. If there was too much traffic, I was working at BET. And I had the information I couldn't put it out there.

A highlight from Boxing with Chris Mannix - The latest with Tank Davis and Ryan Garcia

"See this on video. Keep just flex. What's up, Keith? Oh, it's a big, big game this week. Gonna beat up on your past a little bit with oh, come on. Yeah, okay. That's how it often works out with jets patriots. Tom Brady's long gone, man. Glory days are over my friend. All right, there's a lot I want to get into this week. I want to talk about Jaime mongeau's upcoming fight in air quotes. I'm using that. I want to talk about the negotiation tank Davis and Ryan García, but I want to begin Keith with what we saw last weekend. Jenna Beck, whose name I've decided on this podcast, I will not try to pronounce because I'll just screw it up. The wbo middleweight champion. He defended his title over the weekend, didn't look great in a decision win performance. He has been a guy Keith that is being touted as the boogeyman. We've had buddy mcgirt saying he could beat every middleweight in boxing right now. He has shown real power throughout the early stages of his career, but when you watch that fight this past weekend, did we see any part of Janet Beckett exposed? Did we learn anything new about Janet Beck? Look, I don't think he's a one punch knockout puncher. He has shown some power and he did knock out the opponent that Jaime mongi is going to fight on Saturday in the second round like face first. It was a picture perfect knockout two years ago. But I think he's more of an accumulation puncher. I don't think he's a one punch knockout artist, per se. I was surprised and I think a lot of people virtually everyone who watched it was surprised that Denzel Bentley was still standing in the 5th round. I think maybe to some degree, Denzel Bentley might have been a little bit surprised that he was still standing in the 5th round. And that's when he gained the confidence to start letting his hands go, realizing that he could take John of X power, and then it turned into a real fight. You know, I thought over the last 8 rounds of the fight, you could certainly argue that Denzel Bentley won half of those rounds, maybe 5 of those rounds, but he gave away the first four rounds. So I thought that Janet Beck and it's Chris somehow it's pronounced. Alejandro. I don't really get that the way that it's spelled, but what do I know? I butchered a couple times and once I started talking about him last week, I'm like, I'm just going to go with you. Top rank is going with Jenna back. That's his name on the poster. And they changed the way they spell his first name because they thought zano Beck would be mispronounced, which it would be. It's like golovkin's last name. Exactly. All of a sudden our first name. Gennady, all the son had an eye on it two years ago. We find that out often. Dimitri even has changed the spelling of his name apparently, but anyway, you know, Jedi Beck is, he's a good fighter, man. And I want to see him tested more than he's been tested so far. That's going to take some cooperation from the right guy, of course, but I don't know if exposed is the right word because he definitively won the fight, but you know these pre fight narratives. We write with bob arum says and whomever is saying before the fight and they're laying it on a little thick. I mean, he's the boogeyman. He's this, he's that. People have been reluctant to fight him primarily because he's not well known even among boxing fans. I mean, boxing fans are aware of who he is, of course. He's the wbo middleweight champion, but he's not a high profile fighter. So the way some guys might look at it, including Jaime mongeau, well, what is the upside of fighting him? I'm not going to make an enormous amount of money. Now, of course, now you can get your hands on one of the middleweight titles, which is valuable and gives you some leverage. But he's not the highest profile guy. So if you're a middleweight with options, you know, you might want to fight drama Charlotte if he ever fights again. You might want to fight gennady. Of course, can I go into a big star? You would want to fight him. So I get it from that perspective. Someone's going to have to fight him eventually, or he's going to be in a position where he continues fighting British fighters who are willing to take the fight. And kudos to Denzel Bentley and poor Dan and poor Danny dignam, who was destroyed in the second round of their fight, but give the guy credit at least ten other guys turned it down and he said, yeah, I'll go fight them. He was in over his head and he got knocked out in the second round, but he took the fight. So you have to give those guys credit particularly Bentley because I think he really changed the course of his career by fighting the way that he did. He's going to get another payday, particularly domestically. He's going to get another payday off for this. And he should. Look, I think Denzel Bentley can win some fights at middleweight. He shocked me. I thought he'd be down and out third, fourth round. That'd be the end of it, but he hung in there and as you said, he did win some of those later rounds of the fight. I got to get to work on my conditioning because I thought he wore down in the second half of that fight. I mean, you've got to accept that when you get to higher levels, you're not going to knock these guys out. I mean, you're going to have to go ten, 11, 12 rounds in a lot of these big time fights. And I think he's still incredibly talented and fighting a hard hitting southpaw is nobody wants to do that. Nobody wants is going to volunteer to fight that guy. But I think he is going to have to work in his conditioning as his career moves forward. You mentioned golovkin and there are some parallels there because golovkin couldn't get anybody to fight him for a number of years. Do we know what he's going to do? Like at this point, he's got a couple of mandatories that are in the process or have been ordered. And they're not very lucrative fights Keith, like golovkin's kind of in a position where he's either going to have to vacate one of his two major titles or take a fight for probably considerably less money, right? I mean unless you can get like the Middle East or a foreign country involved, I don't know where the kind of revenue he's been used to getting is going to come from here. Well, that's the interesting thing with golovkin Chris because he was seemingly very happy to announce that he was separating from the zone after his third fight with Canelo Álvarez. And what I was thinking when he was saying that, I understand it from a personal perspective, he feels wronged by them in some way. Look, we should all be wronged and paid that kind of money, I guess. But, you know, he feels that he's been wronged by his own. So he wants to go out and test the market and try to fight. Don't you hate it when guys feel wrong when they're paid millions, don't you? Well, that's what I'm saying. I mean, we should all be wrong in that way, right? I mean, I want to be wrong. Sign me up for it. I don't like to getting punched in the face part, but yeah, sign me up for that. But what I would say about the love can is I think he's going to get a reality check in some sense because he's going to go out onto the open market with maybe a false sense of what his value actually is based on what he's been paid and which fights are unavailable for him. People are not going to be tripping over themselves to overpay for Gennady Golovkin mandatory defenses when he's 40 years old coming off a loss. He looked, he was competitive with Canelo. He didn't get embarrassed in that fight by any stretch, but he lost.

"This is your first time listening on this show we talk MMA boxing and pro wrestling sprinkled in with a little hip hop and pop culture to kick off the shows. This week we are starting with MMA though because we had UFC two 80 one over the weekend, amazing card, tons of finishes, a title change to two title changes to be correct in that one. So so much going on in that fight. Every fight was just amazing for different reasons. We're going to talk about the entire card on this show. We also have a guest from the UFC fighting this upcoming weekend. You guys will find out who that is. Shortly. So it is an amazing, amazing show today. But Dre to start off, I know you saw this Daniel Cormier list. The top 5 fighters of all time for D.C.. I thought she was going to talk about Nas. We got to talk about goddamn. No, we're talking about Nas on boxing. All right, all right, that's fine. So again, our boxing show is later this week. If you guys are wondering, it'll be next up pro wrestling to finish the week off. You just had to bring up D.C. and D.C.. Top 5 fighters list of all time. So first off, they set my boy D.C. up for failure. How do you ask the man for a list that includes boxers? And MMA fighters. Yes, silly. That's ridiculous. It's apples and oranges. It's like, yo, what's your favorite sports player all time? Like you can choose MLB and NFL. How are you supposed to compare those two things? I mean, you know, they try to say a fight to fight, but it's not. It is two different disciplines. Like fighters in one sport, especially makes martial arts being so young and boxing having so much lineage and legacy. It's not fair to compare those. That being said, what does D.C. go out there and do? His list wasn't great. I ain't gonna lie. Run down his list for those who haven't. Number one, Floyd Mayweather. Man, just like undefeated records. Yeah. He just likes them to feed her. You know, it wasn't in the undefeated? Daniel Cormier. Of course. So, I mean, two, Habib Nurmagomedov. I smell some home cooking. That is definitely some home cooking. That's like my brother. He has to be up on the list. Three, Muhammad Ali. He's a boxer. Behind Habib, which is second box, I guess Floyd. I forgot he does exhibition now. So it's hard to slip my mind sometimes. So Muhammad Ali is three. Four. Georges St-Pierre. I mean, all right. No Sugar Ray Robinson. 5 Amanda Nunez. I see. Isn't clarissa shields? No. To her sport. As great as Amanda Nunes is chain clear. I can see D.C. having a slanted view of MMA and then being like, throw on some boxers, and he's like, who's undefeated? And he's like, all right, what do you mean? But Muhammad like Floyd Mayweather number one, it's subjective, obviously, because Floyd retired undefeated. We're going to talk about this more in detail about how Floyd has made this undefeated record such a special thing. And where people like Canelo and Adesanya, which I'm going to draw this comparison to those two because they are the same person. The same person. Whereas Floyd Mayweather is like, nah, I'm going to pick and choose my spots. Because no matter what, at the end of the day, my record's my record. So when somebody like Cormier picks it up and goes, oh, he's 50 and no. He's number one. Doesn't matter when he didn't fight Pacquiao on his prime. There's a lot of fights about the old Mandela Hoya. But when you lay it out there, it's easy for D.C. to go that guy's number one. Whereas Muhammad Ali fought everybody, lost three years of his career, came back, big George Foreman, who nobody thought he'd be. But they didn't even mention Sugar Ray Robinson. No. Didn't mention, I mean, you mentioned Leonard. No, Sugar Ray Leonard. I mean, there's a lot of boxers that you could mention that were not mentioned in Floyd's number one. And for most people who cover boxing long-term, they only have Floyd in the top 5. Yeah, maybe in my top ten. Yeah. I mean, for most people, it's like top ten is objective. Yeah. Top ten is perfectly fine. He's probably one of the greatest fighters we've ever seen, right? Period. But the resume is not necessarily the same. Now, when you put Habib over Muhammad Ali, a fuck are we doing here? Like, what are we doing? He really values being undefeated. So he thinks Habib is the best MMA fighter ever. Yeah. It's tough. It's funny because you didn't put the guy who kicked your head off. Yes. Feature you twice. Who for all purposes is undefeated. Yeah. But you didn't put him on the list. There's a grudge here. His resume is way better than abuse. Yes. Habib, like we said, about a year ago when he'd be retired or two years ago after he'd be Connor. I was like, I can see your argument to say he's the best fighter of all time, because he was so dominant. You retire after gate to your Connor. Yeah. Yeah. But I could see the argument because he mowed everybody down. However, it was a 16 fight. Or 19. The commute has to be on our own. It was under 20%. So when you retire with so little fights and you didn't really start fighting the best of the best until the end of your career, it's really difficult to say that you're the greatest fighter of all time. To put them on the list. Yeah, he's dominant, but Roy Jones was fucking dominant. Roy Jones is arguably the most dominant athlete we've ever seen in a boxing ring. B was 29 and no. He was 29, he got 29. Yeah. Not all in the UFC, obviously. Number of fights were Jesus Christ. Where a lot smaller.

"I'm good. Listen, before somebody, I know that people scrutinize his show, they look really deep. They appreciate them. Looking quick, looking long, look and deep, looking. Whatever, as long as you're there looking, we appreciate you all. And you like my southern y'all. And. Before people have to start guessing, no, I didn't make a comeback. No, I didn't get popped in the eye. You didn't have a fight with bob Aaron, are you sure? Well, I avoid those. The birthday. Yeah, I would have liked that. But no, I got popped. I got popped because at the fights I was covering a UFC fight the other night at the garden. And for years, and it was a pleasure that you guys were there. I was really nice to have few and robbed there with me. And then Ken was getting really kind of surrounded by so many fans. And more, it was getting a little out of hand. It was getting a little crazy. So I jumped in and stuff started flying. I got caught a little bit trying to get kid out of there. Listen, I'm kidding. It could be possible. That could be very possible, but no. I had a procedure done. This morning, an eye procedure, no big deal. They removed the sty, great doctor, doctor ray, Mustafa, did a great job, I wanted to have an open eye by Thursday when I have a big foundation fundraiser dinner. So he took care of it this morning. And I said, we're here. We like the melman. Maybe even more so sometimes. Neither snow nor rain or dark of night or any of that stuff will stop us from delivering a show. You know, I didn't need a box for everywhere, teddy. Yeah. Europe, we've recorded in the way. Sunday. We're not going to be stopped by this. We're not going to be stopped by trivial stuff. You know, it's odd choice. And we make a choice to do it. And listen, I had a father. Forget about the boxing part of my life. I had a father that was, he didn't need to be a boxer to teach you what professionalism and toughness was. He got surgery in his 70s, major surgery, and the next day he doesn't stay in our hospital. He goes to the office. Don't eat things. The only concession he made to the surgery was that he had to lay on a couch to take care of the patients for that one day. One day, so a stupid I think wasn't going to slow us down. And again, I had a special guy a good man in ray Mustafi, who did it. And I was so happy to have you guys with me at the garden. It really was. It really was really, we'll talk about it, we'll break it all down, but it was a great night. It was extra great avenue guys there. And haven't Dustin when and again, we'll break his fight downward through the whole x-ray that we do, but to have him there and then have him on the air would be afterwards breaking his fight down in some of the other fights. It was really great. He's a friend of us, but he's just a good person because he's staying to go to the dinner Thursday night. And I got to tell a little funny story. I was thinking about and I always tell rob, get these clips up and I know I love to make comparisons with some movie stuff when it fits and from rocky to that scene. It was a great scene. He's gone to the fate, right? The rematch and on his way to the fight Balboa pulls into the church and he yells up a father come on. A rocky, what are you doing right in Italian? No, he's talking about what are you doing over here? He goes, don't you have a fight? Yeah, yeah, but I just wanted to stop by maybe that you could kind of like grow me down a blessing to make sure like I didn't get too beat up tonight. You know, so I was thinking, I was saying impress for Dustin that I prayed for all my family and all my Friends anyway and I pray for this country to be quite especially lately. That we're going to be okay. But I was praying and that he's going to be okay. Because of the person he is, because of the person he is because of the kind of fight that he was in. These guys always in tough fights because of the kind of fight with another monster, just like him, he's a savage, and so is Chandler. And you know, obviously knowing that he was going to come to the dinner and show that other side to him, you know, the fighter outside the ring. The champion outside the ring, where he's going to help us raise money to help. A lot of people in tough situations. So I was thinking about that and saying, God, please make sure, you know, he's okay. And thank God he's okay. And thank goodness who won. You know, you know, win or lose. He was going to leave it all in that case. That's what Dustin does. That's what a lot of these guys do. What a fight. What around, again, we're x-ray the whole thing. And the last thing I want to say, I was just so special night to have my Sunday. He came in from Vegas, everybody knows he was with the Raiders for 14 years and directors scouting out there towards the end. And to have him fly and he's here for the dinner of course, but to have him fly in and come to the show with me and be there. It was just great. And then to see all the just all the special people that, you know, that are part of the UFC makeup. That to the broadcast, there were just all good people. I mean, they're all competent. They're all real professionals. Tremendous of what they do, Paul Felder, Megan olivi, Brett kamado uncle motto, okamoto. But whatever you want to pronounce it, that's okay. He knows that he's great. And Brian Custer now is a new man over there. He left show time and he's now he's with ESPN. Sounds like showtime wheels are off. Yeah, Anthony Smith, that's true, it does. They have problems. And Antony Smith, people leaving a boat over showtime. But Anthony Smith, all of them, just they're special. Look, we know about Joe Rogan and D.C. and John attic, but the guys that I work with afterwards to do the post fight breakdown. They're just the way you would want everybody to be in any profession.

A highlight from The 'Wrestling on a Corner over a Crown Jewel because This is My House' Episode

"So if you're fans of the other sports, make sure you check out our other episodes that dropped earlier in the week. We had a great boxing show. We had MMA joined by the champ Carla Esparza as she heads into UFC two 81 to defend her title, plus sprinkled in with a little hip hop. We talked about Drake's album, other stuff going on in the world. So make sure you guys check out those episodes. Like I alluded to to start this. All pro wrestling today, always nice to have some wrestling going on. Dre is how we start every wrestling episode after a pay per view. You are the hardest greater in the history of graders. I'm glad you did not become a professor instead of going into journalism. Well, I would have made you people better. No, I held out and never took your class. I would have dropped your class so fast. Good. I don't want people like you. I want people that want to be tested. I would have been on Reddit, just crushing you. Don't take this great bearded man's class. And then the people that got through my class would have been successful human beings because you got to be difficult. They would have got through your class with a 73%. Yeah. And then somebody would have got an a and that a would have meant something. That's why I'm a tough grader. You would have given out one a in like 5 years. It's like your wrestling is like 5 star wrestling matches. It's like one every 5 years. You're like, you know what? That's pretty good. You're great. It's got to mean something. You can't get everything's not a classic. Everything's not album of the year. Every match isn't matched of the year, we gotta stop that shit. It's too much hyperbole, especially in social media. Does everybody wants to be the best? Did you get straight a's in school? No. Okay, you speak as though one of the people I imagine got traded. No, I got bored in school. So did I was a horrible student. I got bored in school and I, yeah, like I did enough to go to college. I was like, oh, I want to go to morehouse. I'm going to do enough to go to college. I'm going to do well on SATs and I'm going to go to school. And hey, we're more alike than I thought. Yeah, and my parents didn't necessarily think about my grades. So the moment they stopped caring about how well I did school, the moment I stopped caring. So I was like, I'd rather go play dominoes. And I'd leave school and go play dominoes. I go to sleep in class, and I pass the test, and then I get like bad citizenship, but high grades, and it was weird. Citizenships, the Crockett shit, by the way. It is. It was like, he doesn't engage in class. It was like at the test answers, right? Yes. There was plenty of times in school where I would be like, I remember I can't remember what class it might have been. Algebra is some shit like that. There was a test and I slept through everything. 'cause I would like go home and do my homework, but I slept through everything. And the test happened, I was the first one done and I got it right. My teacher was like, stop. Who would you cheat off of? And I was like, I got to test her. I'm the first one done. And she was like, do it on the board and show your work. I was like, you're going to make the other students do this? And she was like, no, because you sleep in my class. I was like, because I'm smart. She sent me to the principal's office. And when's the principal's office? And they were like, are you cheating? I was like, no, I was like, she was like, why didn't you show your work? Because I didn't feel like it. I was like, do I have the answer right? Yes, leave me alone. And it was like this whole thing called my grandmother's school. It was like, Andres is not engaging in class, and I was like, so? You've been an old curmudgeon. My whole life, it's always been that way. So I put an effort where effort was needed. Now I know, you know, preparations key to everything. And when I got to college, I was like, oh, shit. I have to be I have to be awake. No, yeah. I learned that. I was way better college student than I was high school student. But I've always been critical of everything, and I everything harsh. And yeah, so as we talk about pro wrestling and match of the year and all that stuff, I'm not that guy that's just there and watch something that's the first person on social media. It was like, that's the best match I ever. I can't do that. I can't. It devalues what my opinion means. What if it's the best match at that point in time? Like, what if you feel that way? And then you have room to be like, yeah, that was all right. I don't do that. Because everything social media like, it's weird. Last forever. So if I say this is the greatest thing I've ever seen ever, that's a strong statement. And somebody will go back and find that tweet just my luck. It's like, what did you say about that? And I was like, ah, damn. Maybe it wasn't. But a lot of people go, that album is a classic. When to come out, 9 hours ago. How this shit works, man. That movie's the greatest movie I've ever seen. No, it's not. This is what you just saw right then and there. I'm not, I've never been that guy. I can't do it. So I'm anticipating a very mediocre grade for this WWE crown jewel paper. It was a stylish show. It wasn't not a pluses? No. No way. Absolutely not. It's our greatest shit. Exporting news. No, man. No. No. No. They look at you as the editor, like, is he on right now? He's sneaking this a plus grade. I'm critical of everything. I watch everything with a critical lot because I want what I say to mean something. And if people say you're too harsh of a greater, too fucking

A highlight from Boxing with Chris Mannix - Should Canelo Avoid Bivol?

"This is boxing with Chris Manning. Now somebody punch him in the face. Anthony Joshua is a composed and ferocious finisher. Watch this. Hosted by SI's Chris mannix. That was my moment. Now with interviews, analysis and everything going on in the world of boxing. When you have talent, you are given another chance. Here's Chris mannix. All right, Kevin aioli is here, senior combat sportswriter, boxing writer over at Yahoo sports. He is joining me from Las Vegas, but from I'm sure Kevin is going to be boarding a flight for Dubai soon to check out the Floyd Mayweather desi showdown. No doubt, out in the United Arab Emirates. I'll give this to Floyd Kevin. He was masterful as a businessman during his active years and he is masterful as a businessman during his retired years. He keeps taking on these no hopers making 7 figures. Who knows what to believe and how much this he's making 7 figures and just like getting workouts in and seeing the world. It's the greatest retirement story that's ever been written, I think. Or at least in boxing. There's a lot of people that said, oh, when Floyd retires, he's going to be broke, and he's not going to have any money. And I'll tell you what, you got to give the man credit. I mean, you know, he's I don't like these fights, of course. But you got to give him credit. He's found a way to make an income. Keep his name in the news. And I think that that's going to help him with other things endorsements and things down the road. Business opportunities because he's just out there so much. And this guy that he's fighting lost to Jake Paul. I mean, it's not like he's actually if you include exhibitions. I think he's one in three as a boxer. He's the brother of KSI, is what he's best known as at this point. And look, if there's a market for it, it's going to be streamed in the KSI known. I've been cast I was known in the UK for sure. He's got an audience there. He's got a huge social media following. I always think a KSI is a radio station, you know, but it just shows how old I am. It's going to be on his own pay per view. He's going to make a lot of money. I'm sure some people watch it. I'm actually more intrigued to see Tommy Fury on the undercard just to see kind of as he has a potential opponent for Jake Paul down the line. And does he slap Jake Paul, as you said he was going to do? they know what they're doing. If Tommy Fury slaps Jake Paul, it's not going to be looking to hurt him. It's going to be looking to build up buzz for a future fight. Well, what he's going to do is he's going to turn around and look at the cameras pointing at me or everybody looking. And once he sees that they are, then he will slap. Well, there was a scene, I don't know if you remember this in Cleveland where they had kind of an interaction in the hallway after Jake's fight. And one member, I think it was Tommy's team, kind of got serious in the middle of it. And Tom and Jake, we're looking. What are you doing? No, no, no, no, no. We need the camera. We need this moment for social media to build up our fight. They're masters at that. And I think that'll be behind it. But look, to spin it back to Floyd, good for him. He has no interest in taking a real fight. He has no interest. And why should he? No, nor should he if you're making 7 figures to travel the world and beat up on these, you know, first it was a couple of guys over in Japan. Now it's a social media influencer like desi, says it's going to be back in February in the UK. He can do this three times a year and clear more than virtually everybody in boxing at this point. No, I mean, it's masterful. You know, it's amazing the chain because I was around, you know, I covered in person 43 of Floyd 50 fight. And I was around when he was not a draw. And we used the right story. Floyd Mayweather can not sell tickets. And that was the truth back in the day. And the change that he made, you know, he's a genius now. I mean, and he figured out how to make money in that character still works now, and there's still people that are into him and I've had people ask me, hey do you think you'll give Logan Paul reimagine? Who cares? Who cares? I wonder now that I think of it. You're right. He wasn't a draw early on. He had to go to Jersey to fight Gotti to get God's audience to follow him. And I'll tell you this just real quick story. I was the first person to talk to him when he changed to the money may character. And it was in the buffet at Caesars Atlantic City. And we're sitting next to the buffet and the workers were getting ready to open it up, and there's all the ice that they put in the salad bar. And he's eating the ice as we're sitting there. And I had a great relationship with him. I had covered him actually in the amateurs at the Olympics. And so we know we had a good working relationship and he had been pretty boy Floyd always easygoing. All of a sudden, when I first asked him a question, he started, you know, with the money may stuff and like really going off and I'm like, what the hell is going on here? And Lee Samuels from top ranked the Hall of Fame publicist was going to have a connection. I mean, he was sitting off to the side and he didn't know what Floyd was doing.

"Cal dance we hear with the old men Andreas Hale coming at you guys for blue wire studios here at the wind resort in Las Vegas. Hopefully by now you guys checked out our MMA episode from earlier in the week. UFC champion Carla Esparza was a guest. It was amazing. Everything UFC two 81 in that show, make sure you guys go check it out. We have pro wrestling still to come this week as well. But you felt like giving you a mid week boxing episode, so today we are talking to sweet science, Dre, we're gonna speed through it, but there's some good stuff in boxing. We had one hell of a fight last weekend Dmitry bevel. We have a fight this weekend as well. Kazakhstan here in Vegas, which is a pretty good fight and I was a full as middleweight champion. So defending the real middleweight crown this weekend, but really the fights this weekend. Floyd Mayweather versus deji. YouTuber. And in Dubai, Tommy Fury on the undercard of that fight as well. So we have some YouTubers slash celebrity boxing going on, which I know is your favorite. More old timers coming back. We have Ricky Hatton fighting this weekend. So it's like anything goes, man. Anything goes, we got to talk about all of that as well. Before we get into any of that though, people, if you've been listening for a long time, you know, sometimes we talk stuff outside of combat sports. Today is one of those days. Because before Floyd Mayweather before everything else, you know what has happened this week, Dre? The new Drizzy. Uh oh. That's your boy. Yeah, new Drake. Not techno house music Drake? No. Real rapping Drake. 21 savage. It's been a while since we talked hip hop to open the show. Kanye aside. It's so it's nice to actually talk and dive into that before we get into boxing. I like this album. Everyone's shitting on it. The fan people of your ilk, the journalists of the world. Why? It's toxic masculinity. It's highest point, right? A lot of people have destroyed the Meg thee stallion bar. Sure. We're not like that. Listen, listen, man. There are people like, I was like, look, Drake thought he was too clever. Flus asked a little bit too close to the sound on this one. Double entendre, but leave that one alone. Yeah, a little much. You know, got shots, but you still sit stallion. All right, don't do that. Don't do that. But I think it's fine. I mean, personally, I still like, honestly, never mind better. That's just. What? I love to drink it. I love it. It is what it is. It's one of my favorite albums this year. It is what it is. This I enjoy it. Is it how many years that is? No. No, it's really, it's really good for a Drake out. It's a fun Drake out. That's how they all should be. Well, they're not. You know, Drake is in the spot where he is still rapping about the same shit. That's all I want. He does it very well. Yes, he does. 21 savage was really good. Middle of the ocean is fantastic. That song an album. Yeah, but to me by far. And it's all Drake. Yeah. It's Aldrich. There's some other shit that's like really good too, but yeah, that's the best song. Yeah. And I mean, 20 one's fine. I'm not a big 20 one savage guy. So when he comes on, I'm just like, ah. Me either, but he did his thing on this. Spin values like the second best song. Spin value is though. But yeah, it's one of those Drake albums to me that we're gonna be hype about it for a few weeks and it will just forget about it. Nah, this guy a little bit of legs. We're gonna move on. Trust me. Nah, I got some joints. We've been waiting for rapidly rap ash Drake. Yeah, but look, I'm pulling it up right now. Shout out to the cover, though, which is also incredible. I just found out that that's like a Miami stripper. Yes. Jumbo transcript pop is though. Come on, I'm trying to think of what my broke boys is called privileged rappers. It feels like a Drake album. And it's been a long time. It doesn't feel like a Drake. It doesn't feel like a Drake out. It feels like an in the moment out. It feels like it's an album that kind of is not like groundbreaking in any way. Is anything, it does? Well, Drake pioneers a lot of sounds in hip hop. Your favorite rappers taking a lot from Drake. So I would argue Drake takes a lot from lesser known rappers. Drake takes a lot, but he takes a lot from other genres as well. Sure. This is basically an in the moment. This is what sounds good in hip hop right now album. There's nothing wrong with that, but that's what it is. It's not a risky album, it's not, it's just, I'm gonna rap, he's gonna rap too. We're gonna have some hooks, talk about these women, drag them. And then we're out. And it's fine. I'm Serena's husband a couple bars. That was a silly line, by the way. Drake calling anybody a groupie. An age well. You've hugged a lot of men during stop. Yes. You've been a groupie for a lot of teams. Like, real. Yeah, everybody. Real hugging. But it won't be, it's not in the conversation I

"Joined as always by the voice of combat sports, the great teddy Atlas. Teddy, how you doing? Good, I'm doing. I'm doing as we say. Good times. Thank you. So, you know, still hovering around 30 pounds. I lost, I get my mind to it. I'm going to go to 35, but I got to give my mind to it. When the WBC caused me to make way that I will, you know, then I'll do that.

So if they're not drinking athletic greens, they're running marathons, marathons so I want to, I want to congratulate our producer rob, who I know he ran a half balaton in the Malibu Malibu, have marathon. And I know there was some real monsters you would speak to a better than me, but there was some real monsters in there evident of that times that they ran and he came in fourth in a, again, to me, it's kind of like looking at the record of a fighter. It's not the record. It's who you fought. You know, it's not the place of one, two, three, or four, it's who was in a race, and considering that I thought I should congratulate him. But mostly for this reason, that he was in the front setting the pace with two other guys who both ended up running a one O 9 15. Again, you could speak to what that kind of time is for. I have private on. It sounds pretty incredible to me. A one O 9 15. And he was hoping that they would, you know, that they would give in a little bit that they would not be able to maintain that kind of pace. And he knew going in that he shouldn't set that kind of pace, but

A highlight from The 'Fighting on a Corner Against the Fake Geniuses and Loud Mouths' Episode feat, UFC's Daniel Rodriguez

"If you guys haven't already check out our pro wrestling episode from earlier in the week, our boxing episode that just dropped not too long ago as well. And today, that means we're talking MMA on the show. A little bit of a quiet, the quiet before the storm in the UFC with a huge pay per view next weekend in New York. But a good card ahead of us coming this week as well. Also, we have a guest is nice to have a guest and let the record show. We're back on a winning streak. Last week, it was the tight close decision victory, but we are back on a winning streak. So make sure you guys stick around for a great guest today. Daniel Rodriguez co main event from this weekend's fight, I'll be chopping it up with him later, but Dre. MMA is a weird space. We talk about this all the time. And Dana breeds this culture of he doesn't want to silence or mute whoever the person is. You have a lot of leeway to say and do as you please, as long as you're not physically harming some sure. John Jones antics aside. You might even have leeway to do that. Other leagues should not follow this model. And how do you UFC operate? And by this, we're starting our show because we got to talk about fake smart people. Like hire your galaxy brain. The NBA finally, you know, got kind of like some common sense in this situation where now Kyrie has been suspended. A report says, a minimum of 5 games. Yippee. Brooklyn sucks any. But Kyrie is suspended now and it took very long to get there. Because for a while, they went full UFC on this. I'm like, he said it. What can we do? And that's so weird to the NBA, and Kyrie doubled down on some. He offered an apology, but it really wasn't apology, it was like kind of weird. It was like, yeah, I don't know me. I don't say, you know, I love everybody, but he didn't apologize for if people don't know, tweeting a link that led to a video with a lot of anti semitic messaging. Where shall we start? All right. The reason why I took so long for suspensions because the NBA has never dealt with something like this before. And what I mean by that is Kyrie didn't say anything. Yes, he tweeted a link. And it becomes a slippery slope when you try to suspend a player for tweeting a link. The problem with this link is it starts off with a quote from Adolf Hitler, ADO, LPH, Hitler. That's not how you fucking spill it off. Hitler. It should be right there, should have said, hey, this documentary is full of shit, right? Right foot right from that. Hitler. You couldn't spell it right. And the quote that they attributed to Hitler doesn't exist. Oh, well, it's a fake quote. For those and I've watched like a pieces documentary, but then I was like, oh my God, I'm aware of this. The documentary is about basically the black Hebrew, Israelites, black people with the original hebrews. I'm not going to go down this whole path. But the quote that Hitler says is basically I got to kill all the white Jews because the help the black Jews. That didn't happen. It's not real. All right? So Kyrie posted this link and for the people that looked at it, they were like, oh my God. If you want to compartmentalize this and say, your message is that Jewish people were black. You need to say that. But the moment you share something that says, Jewish people are saying worshipers. The Holocaust is fabricated. And they need to die, basically. I don't know what part of this you're sharing with the world. But Kyrie refused to tell anybody. Share any of them. Well, because Kyrie wants to be the smartest guy in the room. And Kyrie believes that there is useful information in this documentary. All you have to do is separate the bullshit. Now, I'm not playing a game with three lies in one truth. I'm not doing that with you, Kyrie. I'm not watching doctor menary and saying, I gotta figure out which one's the truth. Now, listen, this is where it starts to divide our community. Because I have plenty of people on Facebook saying, oh, Kyrie, we have to defend Kyrie's freedom of speech. No, no, no, no. Freedom of speech means you don't go to jail for it. He's paid handsomely. He makes $37 million. He's fine. He's suspended for 5 games without pay. Big fucking deal. To be fair, that's like $3 million. He's not going to miss it. Okay. He's not going to miss it. But he has the freedom to do what he wants, but there are consequences for what you do because in a capitalist society, you have businesses that sell to certain people. And if you alienate that group, well, yeah, I have every right to say you're useless to me. I can't sell sneakers to people because of this because of your beliefs. And ultimately, it's a religious belief. Now, I love Muhammad Ali. Muhammad is my favorite athlete. I will be remiss to say that Muhammad Ali did not say wild shit during his day. I did not agree with everything in the Muhammad Ali said. However, it was a time and a place in explained a lot of his positions.

A highlight from Boxing with Chris Mannix - Less Talking, More Fighting

"Is boxing with Chris Manning. How's somebody punch him in the face? Anthony Joshua is a composed and ferocious finisher. Watch this. Hosted by SI's Chris mannix. That was my moment. Now with interviews, analysis and everything going on in the world of boxing. When you have talent, you are given another chance. Here's Chris mannix. All right, welcome back to boxing with Chris mannix part of the volume sports podcast network. We've got a great show for you this week. I am coming to you from Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates. I am here as part of the broadcast team for the zone fight. Dmitry beeville Gilberto Ramirez terrific fight. I'm going to get into that and much more with my guest this week. Ali Oladipo, a broadcaster with the zone. There's a lot of other media over in the UK. He's going to join me. Eddie Hearn, the promoter of this event, he's going to join me to run through a whole bunch of topics. So we've got a lot to get to on this show. But I did want to start off the top. By bringing attention to something I saw last week. Last week, on the undercard of the show headlined by William zapata and JoJo Diaz, you had a super bantamweight fight between two undefeated prospects. Hector Valdez, who was the golden boy promoted prospect, and max or nelas, who is a free agent prospect. Also undefeated, both 15 and O, they fought in the first fight of that telecast. And look, I'm not going to sit here and say it was a great fight, but this was a fight that max or Nas clearly won. He controlled the ring with his movement. He landed more punches, his combination punching was effective. The eyeball test just told you that he won the fight. Yet at the end of the fight, two of the three judges scored the fight for Valdez 97 to 93. They effectively gave Hector Valdez 7 of the ten rounds. That's lunacy. We're going to name these judges too. Ryu Kai has senior was the judge Alejandro rossin was the other judge. Two scorecards, 97 93, outrageous, in my opinion, sitting there. I bring this up because this happens way too much in boxing. And when this happens, you've got the lives of fighters that are screwed, negatively impacted. I spent some time talking to max Ronnie lost her in the week. He knew how big a moment this was for him. He knew that if he won this fight, he was probably going to get signed by golden boy. He would be ranked in the top ten in the 122 pound rankings, and he would have some structure to his career after operating without much over the last few years. Now he doesn't have it. He's not going to get signed by golden boy. He's probably not going to get a rematch. I give the WBA credit. They're one of the sanctioning bodies I criticize a lot. But in the aftermath of this fight, they actually ranked or nalos in the top ten. Because they saw what everybody else saw in that max won that fight. I just bring this up because we can't forget when stuff like this happens because this is the true awfulness of boxing because at the main event level, if a guy loses a fight and the scorecards are iffy, more likely than not, if a guy's fighting in a main event, he's going to get other opportunities. It sucks for him. Don't get me wrong, but he's going to get other opportunities. Max ronas may not get opportunities like that again. He might not. Hopefully he does because I hope other promoters watching saw that he's a talent at one 22 and deserves to be signed and promoted the proper way. But there are countless examples of fighters like ornelas who have been robbed by judges and wind up losing tens of thousands. Hundreds of thousands of dollars. Some case millions of dollars in long-term earnings because of poor judging. Max or realist won the fight last weekend. He did. I'm not saying this to criticize Valdez, who's a good fighter. He just didn't know what to do with Rene loss in that fight.

A highlight from The 'Boxing on a Corner Watching Paul Drop a Spider during a Sad Weekend' Episode

"On the corner what up, everybody. Welcome to another episode of the corner podcast kell dansby here with the old man Andreas Hale coming at you from blue art studios, the wind resorts in Las Vegas. If you guys are first tuning in to the corner podcast, it's been 8 years, but we appreciate you joining when you did. We talk pro wrestling boxing and MMA mixed with a little bit of pop culture as well. Whatever's coming across our Twitter timelines and as timely. So thank you guys for listening, joining us for the ride that is a corner podcast. Today, we are talking boxing. If you haven't already, check out our pro wrestling podcast was dropped earlier in the week. Still have an MMA podcast coming up later on this week preview on the weekend in the UFC. So make sure you guys check that out as well. Today, those to sweet science kicking it off, Dre, we're not even jumping right into boxing, not into the breaking news that broke today, where we have Caleb Plant, David Benavidez, finding contracts to fight each other. We don't have an exact date, but we'll talk about what that means for 2023 and how boxing starts off there. And maybe it has ripple effects going further than that for the entire year next year. So we'll talk about that and use those reported a little bit earlier today before we recorded this. Also, we have a fight to preview Dmitry boval. Zero fighting this weekend, a zerto is really good golden boy. That's going to be a tough task for buffalo and bava's looking for this clearing out a mandatory to really take him to new heights, even bigger and better than the first Canelo fight because he's looking at undisputed and maybe a Canelo rematch. It's a lot of money in his future if he can handle business this weekend. So we'll break down that fight as well. But we're starting with, which is crazy. It's also a boxing story. As unfortunate as story as it is, but the unfortunate murder and shooting of take off from the Migos 28 years old, Houston, the Halloween slash birthday party, it was shocking. It always is shocking. And we'll discuss this from a hip hop side first before we dive into the boxing side and the many aspects and effects it has in boxing and will connect the dots, but in terms of hip hop, which we often talk in, you cover extensively for two decades now, like I'd like to aid you. But I'm not sure if we're seeing more young hip hop acts die, but it feels that way. Understand we're in the social media age where technology is better. We have video of a lot of this, so it may be feels like that. But I remember this happening in the 90s. Early 2000s, these kids, because that's what a lot of them are, kids are dying at a rapid clip for no reason. We understand we have the big L's, we had biggie park, jam master J these things they hit. They hurt. Big pun to a degree, even though that was health issues. There's always these people 2000 stack bundles. Dies that kind of hit the mixtape scene real tough. We have these names and they stick out. Jam master Jay, because it didn't seem like it was happening every day. I saw a list on Twitter, it's like ten, ten rappers this year. Calendar year, gone. Am I crazy for thinking that like, yo, there's a problem in the culture right now. Yeah, there is. This one's tough because unlike the P and V rocks or even XXX, they were robbery hits, right? Some of them were robbery hits. Pop Smoke. Yeah, Pop Smoke. Robbery hits. You know, some people use social media to trace where they were, what have you? This was completely out of the blue. This was, we got to end the misconception. It was not over a dice game. It was over an argument that happened at a dice game. And it was an era where we live in is where social media gives you an opportunity to get embarrassed by people. And our culture doesn't like to be embarrassed. So if something was going to happen and there was a physical altercation, somebody doesn't want to get embarrassed, instead of fighting these shoot. And that's the culture that we live in today. And this came completely out of the blue from all accounts. It seems like takeoff had nothing to do with it. He just called it straight, essentially. Quavo is arguing with somebody. And you know, they try to things happen in our culture. They have nothing to do with what like mainstream media says. Shot them over a dice game. Whatever it is, but it was, it was some macho man shit. We have a gun problem in this country. Just flat out, we have a gun problem. If nobody had a gun, that shit wouldn't have happened. In our community, we have a fear problem, instead of fighting rather shoot. Right? And it happens so fast that there was no taking into consideration who you're aiming at. Right? It's not like even when nipsey passed. You're shooting somebody who was a staple in the community. Yeah. Right? You can argue that the Migos are one of the biggest acts that changed culture over the last decade. They changed how music sounded. Changed rap styles, influenced so many people. The fact that take off is not even 30. It was crazy to me.

"On the corner what up everybody. Welcome to another episode of the corner podcast Kel dansby here with the old man Andreas hell from blue wire studios in the wind resort in Vegas. It is nice to be back. We were on the road last week, went to Arizona, went to the Jake Paul fight, so you guys would get a full boxing episode later in the week, kind of weird. We're not opening with boxing this week. Well, that's because we didn't get a pro wrestling episode last week. So we got to really catch up on two weeks of pro wrestling. We have AW to talk about on this show. We have WWE crown jewel preview. I want to talk about CM Punk. What is CM Punk's future? In the wrestling business as a whole. So a lot of pro wrestling to get you today. All pro wrestling to open up this week of the corner podcast. But don't worry, 'cause on this show, if you are new, we talk boxing MMA and pro wrestling. So we'll have an MMA show for you in the middle of the week as well as the UFC prepares for a good UFC apex card. And then prepares to go to New York for another pay per view. It feels like the last pay per view is just a week ago. So it feels like this is back to back. We have a full episode about MMA coming in the middle of the week.

But as I mentioned before, all pro wrestling, all pro wrestling, all pro wrestling. I feel like AW is the perfect starting point for today. And not AW in the ring. I feel like, AW in the locker room is the perfect starting point for today. Everything's good, Dre. People say the locker room's good. It's all smiles. They have leaders now. All's forgiven. No one's eating cupcakes, a press conferences. Tony Khan might be back to giving hugs. It's all sunshine and rainbows because reports are saying

I don't know that I could handle that my psyche could handle such an honor as being in GQ, but do you know that I don't even know if we can talk about this, but I was in esquire magazine in 2004, my friend Tom Brown, who's a famous fashion designer when Bergdahl has started carrying his line. He's since been become huge. He's dressed LeBron James, Michelle Obama for the inauguration. When he first started to get big, I was buying his suits before anyone even knew who he was and esquire said. I was in the right place at the right time. So they said, hey, we want to write a profile and we want to do a story of you and some of your customers at the old four seasons restaurant, not the hotel, but the four seasons restaurant in New York was like a media power player place. And so I have a big two page spread here in my office called the all American man of style, where I'm standing there with my friend Tom Brown suit on. I was like, my most proudest. I do never. If I didn't steal you over to podcasting, who knows? I mean, you'd be walking runways in Paris somewhere. I'll tell you this. It's possible. I mean, has any of the television show like the late night shows? Has anybody because you're going to that next level of stardom? If they call, they're going to have to book tickets for two because you know you're coming with me and you should know and everyone should know that I love you and I credit you with introducing me to the world and I will be here I wouldn't be here without you and I hope everyone knows that. I hope you know that and I'll be there for the show. Hey thanks. Listen, we have fun with this. I'm happy for you. I'm happy for you being noticed and being recognized and the only way I'm going on a TV show is if it's The Ed Sullivan Show. I don't think he's doing something more at least. So I'm a little tired. You might have to carry me today because by the time the fights ended last night, we, I mean, we're working on a Sunday today, usually we do it on a Monday. But we'll still be up on Tuesday, our regular day, but to stay consistent with our fans. So they know where we are. But by the time the fights ended, 1 o'clock a.m., I got to work. I actually put work into this. You know, I do my notes. I put my thoughts on paper and it took to three 30 in the morning. So I'm feeling a little, you know, a little tight, but you know what? You're going to be proud of me. I grabbed my athletic greens. And not a boy. You know, it helps. It helps. And then I see you, and oh, you know, it picks me up. It picks me up. To see a good face. And somebody that I enjoy seeing. People ask me, what's it going to take to get you to come out of retirement again to train another fighter? You know what? Pretty simple. A good person. But teddy's got to be dead. Yeah, of course. I mean, I think I earned the right to have that's going to be a decent fight and make sense. Eventually. And all that stuff, you know, it's not like I'm going to be teaching peewee Harmon out of trouble. But. It's got to be really the criteria for me. It's got to be a guy I want to be around. It's got to be a decent person. Well, teddy, with all these. With all these reality stars fighting, I just want to put it out there that if someone wants to pay us enough money, I will fight anyone for the right price. And teddy, you can train me. We'll challenge anyone. Well, we'll have to have to be right. Talk about that. I mean, it's one thing being your friend and supporting you. It's another thing getting in a freaking corner and having to be responsible for coming back to me. That's a big responsibility. Please. All right. I know I'll tell you one thing. The show is going to be fueled today by our friends at Ollie pop. Check out their new crisp fall flavor. Crisp Apple, there it is. Ollie pop for the win.

A highlight from Boxing with Chris Mannix - Jake Paul and the State of Boxing

"Corner. This is boxing with Chris Manning. Now somebody punch him in the face. Anthony Joshua is a composed and ferocious finisher. Watch this. Hosted by SI's Chris mannix. That was my moment. Now with interviews, analysis and everything going on in the world of boxing. When you have talent, you are given another chance. Here's Chris mannix. All right, bonus podcast time. It was a busy weekend in boxing that was highlighted by Jake Paul. The novice boxer taking on Anderson Silva in Arizona. Jake Paul wins a decision over the former MMA star to improve at 6, you know, and I want to talk about it a little bit because Jake is all obviously a polarizing guy in this sport. He thought was ringside for Jake Paul Anderson Silva. Keith, I guess start here general thoughts about Jake's performance. You know, you'd have to walk away from an impressed, right? Because Anderson Silva is a much better boxer than Tyron Woodley or anyone else that he has fought while he's not a boxer by trade. He's very good. You know, he's obviously he beat Julio César Chávez junior very convincingly, the split decision was just a reflection of the fight being in Mexico. He dominated Chavez in that fight. So it's a very credible win for Jake Paul. The one thing I would say about the scoring is I thought it was a closer fight than two of the judges had at 78, 73. I did not think it was a 6 two type of fight. I would, you know, of course there are a couple of close rounds and everything. So 6 two is not all that different than 5, three, but if the judges would have had the knockdown as the difference on the scorecards, I would not have had a problem with that because the punch that's which can be misleading sometimes I thought were pretty accurate in this case and it reflected a very, very competitive fight. I think there was only there were only four punches separating them on the compy box final tally. So I thought it was a competitive fight. I was impressed with Jake Paul stamina. I thought his stamina and this fight was much better than his 8 round fight against Taiwan woodley, so they've clearly worked on that. And he's only 6 fights into his career, dies as you well know, Chris guys typically don't fight 8 rounds, and he's an anomaly in many ways, but they don't fight 8 round fights. Lomachenko and guys like that elite elite level guys do. But for the most part, prospects with no boxing background don't fight 8 round fights, you know, four fights in 6 fights in. So is endurance was impressive. He's got real power, you know, Chad Dawson had talked about that before the fight. I mean, he does have some real pop in his right hand, which Anderson Silva clearly felt in the beginning of the 8th round. Silva said he wasn't all that hurt by it. He was more in a bad position in terms of his footwork and got knocked off balance and everything. And he did get right up and he made the rest of the round competitive, I thought. But, you know, you saw you walk away from it impressed by Jake Paul beating Anderson Silva. Again, I just thought the scoring should have been a little closer. And, you know, he is 47 years old, so that's certainly part of this narrative as well. Yeah, I thought Jake Paul did enough to win. I agree with you. I don't think it should have been as wide. It felt more like a 5 three type of fight with the knockdown thrown in there. But you mentioned the conditioning and the stamina of Jake Paul. When I was down in Puerto Rico a couple of weeks ago, that was a real point of emphasis for Jake and the people around him. He's had BJ Flores with him since pretty much the very beginning he was a sparring partner for that first fight and then took over as the lead trainer for the second. They brought in Danny Smith to that team and Danny is an experienced trainer trained BJ. He worked with Fernando Vargas. He's worked with Diego corales in some capacity in the past and he's done a lot of work with Jake on the defensive part of his game. And I think you saw a little bit of that in the fight on Saturday. But being able to go 8 rounds, I do think that is a feather in the cap for Jake Paul because you're right. You look back at the top top guys, the great fighters. Like, sometimes they're ten fights in before they go 8 rounds. I mean, maybe they're in that 6 round range when they're at the ten fight march. Jake Paul going 8 rounds. Even against a guy like Anderson Silva, that was impressive to me. And still, but yeah, he's 47, but he's crafty in there. Like he knows what he's doing when he's in the ring. He knows how to set some traps and try to get Jake to fall for him and I didn't think he did that.
