"Up because the red sox not only were in san diego now they're in anaheim got me thinking about that franchise do you buy the notion that boston could have a legitimate chance of picking up shohei otani given whatever up it would take i use the cop of the hershel walker trade from the nfl going all in to get him to come to new england tell me which john henry is going to show up if you look at the changes in the red sox over the last five years you know people focus a lot of energy on high and blue we took over from damn david drosky but henry has changed as much as anybody for a long time the red sox ran top five payrolls if you look at the red sox in 2004 to about 2019 they had a top five role in almost every year henry was willing to go over the luxury tax threshold and pay that penalty as well and henry in the last four years has treated the luxury tax threshold as a bit of a limit something that he wants to try to get under so i don't think the current iteration of john henry wants to add a 50 million dollar player and that's what we're talking about with otani a 50 million dollar player to the payroll uh like i say if that changes if the red sox win this year puts more money in the coffers you know you know depending on whether the sinway sports group is involved with liverpool so there's issues there i have to say brian though i don't think the red sox are in my top five landing spots for otani okay good so i can throw that back in my friend's faces because you know they're convinced the red sox are getting everybody hey finally just to prove i'm comprehensive and you know all my references are back in the day how about the buckos now i have no delusion that pittsburgh is going to somehow become a powerhouse again but here's a team that hasn't made the playoff since 2015 positive story back at top along with milwaukee the standings in the central brian reynolds they're going to pay him they brought mccutcheon back to the steel city even if it's not sustainable is there at least hope finally in pittsburgh oh absolutely good good yes the record ends up being this year you know maybe they end up around 500 but you look at the young players they've brought through g1 bay and castro they committed in addition to reynolds the cabrian haze the jesse lincey off to a good start louis ortiz with the start last night against the rangers it's not about whether we make the playoffs this year it's are we putting the pieces in place to be the core of a very good team in the middle of the decade let's not forget too they have two top catching prospects and endy rodriguez and henry davis who was the top pick and draft a couple years ago got some pitching down there as well the pirates are really pulling it together and to tie these two together ben charrington in boston was a big part of building the team that ended up winning the 2018 world series he's now building that same kind of farm system led team in pittsburgh joe you're the best i love the connection plus you've given me an excuse in the final hour of the program to run through the entire starting lineup of the 79 pirates omar moreno's walking through that door tinfoil no omar moreno didn't walk anywhere so madlock willie sargeal bill robinson come on we ready candy the man and i love the hats too late 70s joe this is why you and i need a podcast keep working on that arcane references as if you're not busy enough thank you my friend and because rich is off today that means vacation season's coming up we will be in touch when we get to later june and july okay sounds good brian thank you joe sheehan the joe sheehan baseball newsletter joe sheehan .com please do check out all his great work and consider subscribing right now let me spend two minutes on the situation of now former oakland a's announcer glenn kiper if you know who i am and you don't need to but i got my broadcasting start in the san francisco bay area i worked for a company that was sports channel pacific at the time which is now mbc sports area who made the announcement that they were terminating glenn for what he said on the year in kansas city a few weeks ago a audible a undeniable racial slur to be totally transparent i've not spoken to glenn in 20 years there's no animus we work together but lives are different and i'm now based in southern california i can tell you this and anybody that knows him nor common friends or anything this is just me opining i work with glenn for a long time i saw nothing to indicate behavior or a mindset that would reflect anything more than a colossal mistake on the year however we are responsible for every word we say especially in this job and it's not about intent the apology is terrific i think he could have helped himself in the moment obviously he was stunned if you saw when he came back on camera in the sixth inning it was a clumsy apology it was clunky i can also say this can sound critical i'm just being again up front glenn is not the most articulate guy in the world he's a nice guy whose older brother was star and played in the big leagues one of the most popular announcers in the san francisco bay area glenn got some help because of that but he's not the most articulate fella in the world no excuses i understand

"Which often isn't in my sport, it had his performance had as much to do with what Romero wasn't doing with what he was doing. Is that fair can? Take a note to the wave from me. He did good things. But also it had a lot to do with what Romero was not doing. As well as what he was doing. Because Romero was, I mean, he was, he was, I mean, he was adding to his own demise. Obviously, he was an accomplice to his own demise, if you will. You know, where he just wasn't doing anything. Well, we've got a ton of other fights to touch on, but real quick before that in the co main rancid Bartholomew, gets a win over Omar Suarez, one judge had it a draw two judge two judges had it for barthelemy, crowd was booing him right out of the right out of the ring when this fight was over. I had a hard time watching this fight. It was boring to me. What did you think? What day lit from its 38? All I can tell you is ten years ago, 15 years ago, no, no, no. Ten years ago, 15 years ago, whatever it was. I was calling his fights on ESPN Friday night fights. So if he's 37 or 38, you're giving the aids in a minute, I want to be accurate. Says he's 37. And he was in with Juarez 23. Okay, these dirty. All right, no problem. I'm 17. You and Louis Ortiz. All I can say is, look, who knows? Who knows? Because he escaped, I believe, from Cuba. A lot of those tremendous fighters escaped from Cuba from a haj regime to come to this great country to come to this great country. And be able to prosper. And he did. And they take peril. They take all kinds of risks, different kinds of risks. Some of them even get on a raft and they could drown or get eaten by sharks to come here to come to this country. To have a chance to have a free life, as I said, a good life for priceless life, and he did. But let me tell you something. When you're leaving a place the way that they have to leave can, you ain't put in documents like birth certificates into a FedEx container. You're not putting them into a filing cabinet and putting that on the raft for you. Adventure to guess a lot of them don't have. That's the point. That's the point. Who knows how old they really are because they come and leave in a regime like they're leaving to get here. Right? They're coming over here. Like I said, they're not coming over with documents put away in a filing cabinet. They're just coming over with what's on their back. The clothes on their back for the most part, to get here, to start a new life, a better life. So a lot of them don't even know and if they do know they can say whatever, you know, whatever's dead so I remember the great Yankee pitching from Cuba years ago. Al dukey, you remember him? He was a great money pitcher. They won the World Series with him. He was great. He was great. And he was 28 years old for about 42 years. No, no, no, seriously. He was 28 years old for at least ten years. At least ten years. Who knows how old el dookie was. He also escaped that haj regime in Q to the point I'm making is when you see some of these when you see some of these agents which come to fight as a come from these places. Really, you gotta be a little, maybe a little skeptical. I mean, it would be kind of like you trusting reading the inquirer to know what happened to JFK. Are you gonna read really? Are you gonna read that? To know what happened to Jaya or to know where Jimmy Hoffa's buried. Really? When we adopted my daughter, her birth mother, there was no official documentation. She wasn't born in a hospital. And she said, the birth mother told us, yeah, I know the date because it was the day of one of the World Cup finals, and I remember on July 14th, that was the date. So that's the date, that's her birth date. And we just went with that. But it was in the context. She was like four months old and we got her, but that was the only reference we had to a specific date when she may have been born. And I don't think that that's unusual for any country outside of the developed world where access to a hospital is a huge privilege. A 100%. And we should remember that privilege. We live here in this great car. We should remember that privilege that other people don't automatically get born with. So anyways, false breaking of fight down. But the. Look, it was what I always talk about, a battle of geography. He's longer, he's taller, and he looked a control the outside, which he did for some of the fight. And then what was the opponent again? Juarez. Juarez, all my Juarez. Was shorter short arms. And look to get inside to have the inside track the inside geography and he had his way in spots. They took turns having their chances

"But you watch Sarah Anderson, watch the skills. If you're bob Aaron, you just can't waste, I'm not saying wasting time with him, but he's ready. Yeah. And these cans, they're fun to watch him beat up, but even Jerry walked in that fight and he was like, I think this was a replacement opponent who was supposed to fight someone else. Whatever. You saw it in the Jared's face is like, all right. He was more hyped for the entrance than he's like, all right, I'm gonna beat his ass and then what? And we don't need to waste time giving him, I don't need to see a 37 in O record with Jared in it. No, let's go now. Like, again, feel of her Vince who got a 23. Right. He doesn't need that much season. He can season his ass by beating up everybody from 15 to carries all the way up. Again, her govich got a gift decision to get zang. Yeah. You got an absolute fucking gift. Maybe it was just not on that night. Maybe that's not the fight to make, but I looked at her and I looked at Jared Anderson, I'm like, he can beat him. Me too. Daniel Dubois, who lost the Joe Joyce, but is a hell of a fighter, but I look at somehow now the number one contender, and you got to take step aside for us. It's why. It's ridiculous. But Jerry could beat anybody in this weight class, except for the names that I mentioned at the top, but no need to waste time. He'll probably get another showcase fight. And then by the end of this year he needs to fight somebody. I think it's just a matter of paying someone. I think Ortiz was Louis Ortiz would be perfect. A good, a good fight for him. I think they're going to get him somebody, definitely. You got to. Andy Ruiz would be a good stylistic fight series out, but Andy, it looks like by all accounts. Yeah, he's lined up for a very wild, but I mean, I like that matchup because if wilder, supposedly wilder versus Ruiz, and wilder seems to be entertaining other things, he doesn't care about running it back for the WBC title right now. So if that's the case, Ruiz automatically just becomes no more contender. I guess, but Sofia. He's like, yeah, fuck it. I think that's the next fight. And then, I don't know, giving up on undisputed and everywhere. I don't think it's happening anymore. No, but you look at it and I mean, the top ranked core, those young guys, and they're all kind of like together. Top rank is deep, you're just not paying these guys. Make them stars pay them to keep them. And then they're in a good spot. You don't want to build them and have them go off and go to showtime or PVC. Oh, get them opponents. They're in a good spot. You know who's not in a good spot? Sebastian vendor. Timber. Listen.

"This will be worse. Because if you can't touch the target and you just keep getting hit, at least Devin was there to get hit, even though you couldn't hit him, scoring and be there for you to hit him. No. And he's going to make you pay. Three years from now, corby the number one pound for pound fighter in the world. I can't see anybody beating him right now. I just can't see it. Me either. The stats on that and I posted on ringside. Crazy. He landed 50% of his punches. That's not fair. 60% of his power punch. That's even worse. And the stats defensively are what's crazy. Yoshino landed 11% of his punch he threw 332. Landed 11%, 36 punches all fight. 28 of those punches were body punch. Yeah, where Shakur gave it to him. He landed 8 head punches all fight. He landed 2% of the jabs throne. It is a jab. Yeah. It's the easiest punch in boxing. Landed two jabs out of 89. 2%. That's really like 1.6 something stupid. They rounded up to 2%. That's stupid. A man landed two jabs in 6 rounds. But the key is he tried. He threw 300 bucks. He tried. Yeah. He tried. He just got beat up. He got beat up. He did everything in his power to try to make this a fight. And I can't see George Campbell's making it any better, right? Of course, he was just the truth, man. And I hope he's in Vegas for the Ryan García tank fight. I'll be so much fun. All right, you keep talking about Devin. What about me? Always in Vegas for both of those fights. I hope he's at every fight. Just be the buggy man. Him sitting next to Jay prince with a big smile on his face. Oh my God. Counting money. Dollar signs in his eye. He's a problem. You know what else is a problem? Keyshawn Davis? The amount of people sleep on keyshawn. Because he is, I am not diminishing him, but he is the Robin to Shakur's Batman. For now, yeah. Like he was training partner once your car was in Olympics, that's how he got found. That's how he made the Olympic team and everything. But Shakur knew he had something. And he has that bud Crawford kind of quality? Yep, where he's just nasty. Like he wants to hurt you. He wants to shit talking. He wants to prove you wrong. And he's not going to fight your career. But it's one of those things where for everyone else, he's a problem. And the people, child demar kriegel, who ran a great video essay about Shakur's the new boogeyman. No one's calling out his name. Everyone calls keyshawn's name. Because you're like, I don't want to fight Shakur. It's like, I gotta call somebody out and they call him out. And that is going to be the wrong move. Yeah, for a lot of fighters. Keyshawn's a problem. He's 24 years old, he's only 8 no, but against he get, he just pulverized him. And then he starts talking shit to him. And keyshawn's like, are you serious? You want me to beat you up? Sure. The body punch. The slip underneath to the body was filthy. It sounded like he hit an empty spark less water jug. Boom. And it was like, yo, your insides are fucked. Keyshawn Davis, unfortunately for him, nobody's in a rush to fight him. No, like nobody, even if they'll say, oh, I'd rather fight, you're not. Because the payoff ain't there. Keyshawn, he'll even wait Sakura move up and he'll start collecting and people will be like, he'll be 15 to no before. With the notion of going down. He says he can make it. I believe it when I see it. I'm not saying he can't. It's unnecessary right now. He went to one 30s, cleaning up. He's cleaning up anyway. This is a matter of time, right? Like the three of them will talk about Jared Anderson in a second, the three of them are paired perfectly on these cards to showcase each other. And keyshawn is not even all he has to do. Your best bud is Shakur Stevenson. He's just kind of away from him. It's like, all right, you done with 35? Can I have that now? And I think shakara be at 35 for a while, but I think once he gets all the titles, he'll probably just drop vacate and then keyshawn will start belt collecting the other ones that it looks like Devin Haney will top out at 47. I don't know if he can make 50. Sounds about right. Tang, same thing. Tank, tank and 40 might be his time. 44. He'll fight in 47 because his body, like he's big. Yeah, but I know he doesn't want to. His body's not going to allow him to see other measurables though. He's a pterodactyl. He's got a little good. But tank tank he will end up at 47 like Adrian bronner did when he shouldn't be at 40. Yeah. Ryan García will be at 47. Sakura. See, there might be 54. He could be he's about 5 ten. I mean, Devin. Devin could get close to 54 as well. Shakur is like Floyd. He's not going to get much bigger. No. 47 will probably be the max Floyd picking shows that one 54. Yeah, well, he was very clear. He despised, weight drained his opponents. He held all the cards by that point. But I think Shakur, 40 will probably be his home for a while, then it'll be like, he'll look at you because Terence has got to be gone. Arrow's got to be gone. So be gone. Boots is Virgil will be long gone. Might be gone tomorrow. They'll be gone, and then he can settle into 47 and try to take surgery whatever his ailment. Now, and he has to keep pulling out a fight. He's big. It's like, yeah, maybe you shouldn't wait cut anymore. Maybe that could help. He's big, he's a big 47. Boost Ennis is big 47 as well. But sure he'll settle like, right? Nicely into 40. He'll watch and because what he'll do is probably beat him up and see him being 47. Yeah, so it'll be interesting to watch what your core does and keyshawn will be right behind him. And we'll see over the next few years now, Jared Anderson on the other hand, listen, I need to see him get someone like tomorrow. Well, that's what I was about to say. This fight was a joke. Jared looked at it as a joke, he fought it like a joke. He finished him like he was supposed to. He's not a top 15 heavyweight yet. He's 11. There's put him at 11. I don't have him in the top 15 heavyweights because he hasn't fought anybody. No, that's fair. I feel like Philip perkovich, I was still feeling like Joseph Parker, I still feel like there's plenty of heavyweights, not plenty. I think Jared is like right outside. There's a lot of heavyweights where he can get that step up. Dating a white, looking for a check. Fight Louis Ortiz. Fight Luis Ortiz, if I Joseph Parker, fight Philip hokus, I mean, you know, I mean, Big Bang Zhang is about to get knocked out by George George probably. This weekend. Good chance of it. It's a good chance, but I feel like Jared is like right on that cusp of being a top 15 heavyweight. But he has to fight somebody. Frank Sanchez. That's what I was thinking. Frank in fighting them. Like Frank is on the same path with Jared. He's just moving along a little bit faster. But Jared Jared probably have to fight effie a job book because he's in-house. Anybody in the top 15, he's a problem for right now. Anybody outside of Tyson Fury, old Santa usic, Beyoncé wilder. He could even give Anthony Joshua problem right. I would love that fight, but there's nothing in it for John. You know, not right now. But Dylan white, you go down the list again, Joseph Parker, I will see Joe Joyce's 37 fucking years old. He has got to hurry and get a title fight. Jared won't be those two won't fight. They won't cross fast. Daniel Dubois,

"And he means one of the organizations. Are you saying that, are you saying that Delia white won't would be a hard fight for Anthony Joshua? I say he should go like what Eddie says. Top 15 guy, then go to a dealing in white or something like that. You let him build his confidence to even get to Dylan white. The guy just lost twice. That's usually the normal procedure of a guy who loses once. He lost twice. You know, and then he had like a breakdown in the ring afterwards. He's like, yo, he's pissed off at him so. He needs that. So I say, don't throw him in there a while. You know, while the might have lost a couple of times, but he's super while the lost twice too. There was stuff. And look who he fought. I mean, he just coming off a big window. And look who he fought. He fought one of the top 15 guys. Which was a perfect. I mean, that Robert Lennon was perfect for one. Because he was incredible, given the com ski wins. But we all knew coming in that he didn't have a lot left. That's exactly the type of guy Eddie needs. He needs someone with some credibility coming off at least one reasonable win, but also not exceptionally dangerous. Those guys are hard to come by. I mean, I'm thinking like, you can even do that might even be too dangerous for them. I don't know. I mean, who's that? And he's coming off the loss, too. So it's tough. I still think Eddie wants to get J Lee Jong a couple of wins that do Joshua fight in Macau or somewhere in Beijing. I still think that's part of the plan. But you look at you almost wish Charles Martin was more active after the lost to Louis Ortiz. Rematch. I mean, I like the for Joshua like Norris Ortiz and I know he's older, but look, he gave a good effort in the Ruiz fight, you know, ended that fight strong. I think it was competitive. And he's older, but I like that fight because he's still all the guy who has skills and has power. I would shoot for that guy if I could if I was Eddie, I'm not a promoter, but I like that fight to start off the name is big and I just don't think he would I don't think that he can beat Joshua. I think he'll hurt Joshua. I think he's well past his prime. So there was a top name that I would pick with. I feel like he doesn't need a name for this particular first fight. Yeah, I agree. No, but why not? He does it, but why not? What would it hurt? If he had a name. Nah, I don't see it. I don't see it. No, I think you got to be real. If he doesn't do that, then why do it? Why not? No, the question is why do it? Because he doesn't need it. So why do it? Because it looks good. Hey, I'm coming off a two losses, but guess what? I'm hopping right

"Deontay Wilder who's back October 15th and a pretty intriguing fight against Robert Lenny. He did an interview recently where he said he's in the Hall of Fame, no question about it. Deontay Wilder is one of the biggest punchers in the heavyweight division, but again, something I talk about a lot resume. What is the resume of Deontay Wilder? He has got two high level wins. Those are both over Luis Ortiz. He pushed Tyson Fury to a draw in their first fight, but was knocked out into very entertaining subsequent fights by fury. So I don't know, you tell me first is Deontay Wilder if you retired tomorrow Hall of Famer. No. No. You just mentioned it. What remains to Verne is the only champion he's beaten. Yeah. And other than that, he's had good names, good solid title challengers. Chris areola, you know, that's one of them. Louis Ortiz, there's another one. The thing that makes him exceptional is that he's a power puncher and he knocks everyone out. He has the highest knockout one of the highest knockout ratios in boxing, but that you don't get into the Hall of Fame for being a huge puncher. Or else Ernie shavers will be in the Hall of Fame. That's why I compare wilder two. Ernie shavers went the distance with Muhammad Ali. He went the distance with what Larry Holmes, he fought, he put homes down. Remember that shot and he put all of them. I'm saying is Ernie shavers is pound for one Hall of Fame material of punchers, but as far as skill goes, no. That's where I put Deontay Wilder. He made a big splash he made a whole lot of money. He's entertaining with his right hand, but he lacked a lot of skills. He's not polished enough to be in the Hall of Fame so no. You don't already shaver his record was? Yeah, about 90 fights, I think, 75, 14 and one.

"That gets all the opportunities that I had, if not more, she started boxing when she was 18. Chris, okay, I didn't walk into oxygen dials 17 years old first by the 8. Sorry, when she was 8, she was 8. I walked in the gym at 17, took my first box and fight at 18. There were no opportunities for any of us, but we hustled and we made sure we showed up to those national tournaments in that we won. Because that was what was gonna get you to where you wanted to be, which was on an Olympic team on a national team. So that's what I did. I hustled my grind and I put everything into it. There was no opportunity. I don't know what her excuse is. She wants to make an excuse. I got to where I got out of some luck or some privilege. But I didn't. I grinded my ass to where I am right now. And she fell short. Opportunity now. But everyone and women's boxing had to grind, especially when you came, I mean, it wasn't what it was in 2016 when you came out the Olympics. There was no support for pros at that point. Nothing. When I first started boxing, there was no one was allowing us to compete in the Olympics and pros weren't signed in this. I don't even know what the hell I was thinking. I was just crazy, just in love with the sport and figuring out, I figured out along the way. And that's what I did. Last couple of things. You've studied your obviously. Do you look at this as a difficult fight for you? Every fight for me coming up to this point is difficult in a big fight. I'm not looking past anybody. I've told everybody that I have trained for a very, very tough, strong version of baumgartner. But ultimately, my confidence level, I do believe I'm the greater, more complete fighter, and I do feel like I'm going to overwhelm her. If she does have the power that everyone's talking about, then I got to be careful that I don't get counted and caught with that right hand. And I'm realistic about that. And I've come up with a strategy to try to avoid that. But we'll see when I get in there with her. You've said first few rounds is when she's dangerous. Like, how do you have to fight in those first few rounds? Is this going on before the fight or after the fight? How careful do you have to be, I guess? This will be before the fight so I want to give away too much, but I'll say this. I know my style. Yeah. I end up at some point in the fight. I take it to my fighter, and I back them up, and that's my style, and that's what Coachella has always instilled in me because he wants me to be excited. And he wants me to shut it out. So it's going to get to that point eventually. But it feels like she wants to reverse into a dogfight. Like she wants to lure you into like a Street Fighter. I don't think so. That's what she keeps talking like, you guys, but she doesn't. She's not a dog like fighter. She does not lure people into street fights. This girl wants to stay at her perfect space encounter and catch you. Even this is the perfect example if you watch her last fight with Matisse. Matisse was levels below her, right? She should have gotten her out of there. But her plan is to catch you encounter you and land that perfect shot. And when she doesn't do that, she doesn't have that third fourth gear. She doesn't put you on your back foot and back you up and get you up against the rope. She doesn't have that dog in her that I don't know where people are getting this. Where did you get it from? I mean, her? Yeah. She doesn't. Everybody. And I think I was part of the broadcast of the Terry Harper fight. Everybody looks at that and the knockout was spectacular. It was a knockout of the year or one of anyway. And I think that's where a lot of it. If it does not where it comes from, it's why a lot of people believe it because that punch put Terry Harper out on her feet. Yeah, I mean, she's got to land that she's got to land it. She's got to be set to land it. She tells the type like a hamadouche type who's going to push me back and overwhelm me with shots. That's more me. That was a tough fight. Yeah, that's what she really has to get ready for for me because if she can't land that right hand, she does have to go into a tough ten round fight, which she's only been in one full ten rounder, by the way. Then she's in foreign territory. Well, good luck, Michaela. And it's like a 6 or 7 hour flight to get back. Would you please watch a couple of rocky movies? Find the best ones. Like one, at least, and then don't watch 5, 5 is terrible. Oh my God, there's 5. There's like ten now. Oh my God. And there's one Michael B. Jordan and all that stuff. Now you're graduating.

All right, time now for this week's picks brought to you by our friends over at FanDuel. I really hope you have been betting with me consistently. Last week, I gave you two more winners. I said Andy Ruiz to win, that was not a difficult pick. Andy Ruiz to win by decision. That one was those were good odds. Hope you got rich, betting on 80 Ruiz had some shaky moments there. Ruiz, where it looked like he was gonna pick up a knockout, I guess not really shaky, but he was about to put Louis Ortiz down early in that fight, but that one ended in a decision and for Andy Ruiz and Ruiz picks up the win and hopefully you picked up a win as well. This week, the focus is on women's boxing, claressa shields, Savannah Marshall, undisputed, middleweight championship, a grudge match between shields and the only women's boxer who has ever beaten her Savannah Marshall top shields in the amateur ranks about ten years to go. Now this fight is very close, oddsmakers have gone back and forth. Right now shields is a slight favorite over at FanDuel, but I think she's going to win. I like her a lot in this fight. It's been a Marshall is a big puncher, but I think claressa shields is the better boxer here and should win a decision. That is my pick. For method of victory as well. And that's where you can make a little bit of money. Clara shields by points or decision is plus one ten. So it's not the greatest of odds, the best odds right now are shields by knockout, but I don't think the rest of shields has great power at one 60. Certainly not enough to stop someone, the caliber of samana Marshall. I do think she wins something like a 7 three 8 two type of decision because I think she is the better boxer. So this week, take Clara sheels to win, take her to win by decision, those are my picks, brought to you by

"I expected him to come back and fight. Because there's a lot of money to be made for him, frankly. The question is, is which type of opponent is he going to fight in his comeback fight? Is it? Because he's going to want to be paid at a certain level where you can't just pay him to fight whoever, right? I mean, he needs to fight someone reasonably well known and reasonably dangerous to get paid what he's expecting to be paid. So I'm not all the really all that surprised that he's coming back. I know there were some talk from internally from his camp that it was a brutal knockout loss to Tyson Fury. He has made a lot of money, so maybe he would not come back. But just from a pride standpoint, I don't think he's going to want to go out. He's not going to want his now oftentimes they're fighters careers, particularly the heavyweight division, don't end in the best ways. But he wasn't going to want his career to end with a brutal knockout loss to Tyson Fury. He's going to want to come back. And get in some meaningful fights and make a lot of money. I think those opportunities are there for him. It's just a matter of who he's going to fight. You know, because Tyson Fury, I don't think Tyson Fury is retired by any by any means. So I think he's going to try to fight the winner of the usic Joshua rematch. And then it's just a matter of which types of fights you can find for Deontay Wilde to quote unquote keep him busy while he tries to work his way back toward getting a shot at once all of that unfolds and whoever's left standing. Well, there's not going to be any demand for him to fight Tyson Fury a fourth time after what happened in the last two fights that they had, but if for some reason usic win comes out of that emerges out of that or Anthony Joshua emerges out of that, you know, those fights would be viable for Deontay Wilder. So Andy Ruiz and Luis Ortiz are going to fight, I believe, on August 13th, you know, there's not going to be a call for him to fight Luis Ortiz a third time either, but a fan of Ruiz wins that fight. He's a former world champion. He also was affiliated with PBC. Maybe that's a viable fight for Deontay Wilder. I spoke to Dmitry salita the other day, and he said that Otto wallin, who gave Tyson Fury a tough fight a few years ago, would certainly be willing to fight Deontay Wilder. That's not a bad thing. Keith. Not autos always available. Ready to fight. He is, but I don't think he doesn't belong in that type of fight. I mean, you'll give Tyson Fury a tough fight. It's his only loss. And he's just not a, you know, he's not affiliated with PBC and he's not affiliated with Eddie Hearn, so he's not getting these types of fights. And frankly, he really got screwed last year when he was supposed to fight Billy and white, Billy and white pulled out of the fight, said he had a shoulder injury. And then you can't blame him for going to make an enormous payday against Tyson Fury, but then I don't want lean was not really made whole after that. He would just kind of, oh, you trained the whole time for the fight and take your training expenses and shove it. And so I would like to see him get an opportunity. I wouldn't mind seeing him fight Deontay Wilder because it's a reasonable opponent for him to fight. As is Andy Ruiz, I think. So, but in the PBC universe, there aren't many fights that you could make for Deontay Wilder that people would be interested in. Andy Ruiz would certainly qualify as one of those fights because he's beaten Anthony Joshua, the former heavyweight champion. He's still in the heart of his physical prime. I could see that, you know, but then when would that fight happen? Because if Andy Ruiz is going to fight Luis Ortiz in two and a half months, what Mandy Ruiz isn't going to show up three months later to fight the anti wilder and Deontay Wilder there's not going to wait forever to return to the ring. So do you see him fight just a guy? I mean, it's the guy to keep him busy and to get in there and build his confidence back and get a knockout win. You could see that, but he'd have to be reasonable in terms of what he expects from his purse to make that type of fight happen. Yeah, Charles Martin came to mind when you're thinking about a comeback fight. Martin, of course, was knocked out by Louis Ortiz in January, but if you're just talking about kind of a shake off the rust type of fight, you can quasi cell Martin, the ex heavyweight title holder, and Martin's the kind of guy that he's been stopped and two of his losses. So you can expect if while there's in any kind of shape that he would do the same to Martin. And this one, I like the wallen fight as well. It just makes sense. Well, it's good, but not great. He's also continues to win. He beat Dominic Brazil of whatever that's worth and continues to rack up. He's not just staying idle waiting for his opportunities, taking fights and collecting wins. So yeah, wallen makes a lot of sense. And then you're right again. Next year, let's say Anthony Joshua comes out of this Joshua fury usuk stuff as the undisputed champion at heavyweight. Joshua wilder would still be massive. It might be massive even if Joshua loses. You know, next year. I mean, it's still a big fight between two big punchers. That will always have a marketplace for it. So yeah, it's good that while it's come back. I think he has one more run left in him. As long as that run stays out of the lane of Tyson Fury. Like there's no reason to see him in fury ultimately go at it again. So we'll see. Good for what are you getting your statue in Jersey? Is that coming soon? That's a good question. That's a good question. Where would your statue be? Like mine would be outside like the Dunkin Donuts in Boston. I would have a statue there. Isn't there a Dunkin Donuts like every 5 feet in Boston pretty much correct? There's also fun fact, fun fact, Keith there's also the original Dunkin Donuts in my hometown. The first ever Dunkin Donuts. Is that right in my hometown? Yes. Well, there's a lot of I would like a statue there. There's a lot of Dunkin Donuts in New Jersey too, and I've obviously been prone to eating donuts. So maybe outside of a Dunkin Donuts might be my spot too. Who knows? That's great. Every boxing writer should have a statue outside of a Dunkin Donuts. That should be that should be a thing. I like all right, this podcast has gone off the rails at this point. I would say officially. So Keith, good to talk to you, man. I always appreciate time. Always, Chris, I'll talk to you soon. When we come back, my conversation with Devin Haney.

"A quiet moment, he'd be like, thank God, I don't have to figure out how to pay him because you can't keep putting Andy Ruiz and pay per view fights that are going to fail. I mean, for the obvious, so and look, if you're Andy Ruiz, you did beat Anthony Joshua a few years ago, so you feel like you deserve to be paid X the market might not necessarily dictate that. And if your triller we take our shots at triller and they deserve a lot of it, whether they like it or not for the most part. But if you're them, that's a get for them, right? If you get Andy Ruiz to fight on your platform, he's a former heavyweight champion of the world. I guess. I don't know how well it's going to do on their platform, but it's better than some of the fights that they've made. I was fascinated that it's going to be on a pay per view. I'm not sure what kind of numbers should be expected for Andy Ruiz against Tyrone spong. Well, listen, listen, we just saw Charles Martin and Luis Ortiz on pay per view. So I don't know. I guess anything's possible. As you can sell that two time title challenger versus former 5 minute heavyweight champion. And it was an entertaining. I'm not the fight. It was entertaining. I didn't know how Tyrone spong was before. I knew he was the guy that was supposed to I do sick and then he said something. I did that, I don't know. I don't know. I'd assumed a reason Louis Ortiz were headed for something, but that must have just been too pricey for anybody. And Andrew Ruiz Luis Ortiz on pay per view is not going to sell either. So I don't know what their what happened. Yeah, I don't know what you do with a guy with like Ruiz, maybe you just let him go fight on other platforms, which appears to be what's happening in this case..
The unsinkable Tyson Fury took America for a night. Can he keep it?
"Tyson. Very deontay wilder both had unique entrances to the ring on Saturday night but the advantage at once the bell rang was all furious. Wilder was knocked down twice once in the third and once in the fifth round while there was able to extend the fight to the seventh round but fury was too much. Wilders corner threw in the towel giving fury the win by Technical Knockout Fox sports analysts and huge boxing Fan Christopher starred with us. Now good to have you on this one. How surprised were you by the outcome will pick wild during the tenth round? Tko So obviously. I thought he'd win. I was surprised he lost. I would not have been surprised. If fury had one in a decision it was a close fifty fifty. A lot of people are saying. It's a fifty fifty fight. I wouldn't have been surprised at off. He just outboxed him for trail round right but for him to march forward the way he did and knock him out. That's the problem. He was saying he was GONNA do it. You know in the premiums fight and I thought he was just talking noise right right and I thought he may be trying to throw wilder off. But here's something I have said since. Wilders become champion and been this prominent fighter and this is why despite his all time high knockout percentage despite his record no one really has ever put him in the class of Tyson Ali. Form and frazier any rocky Marciano. Any of the really great heavyweights. Because the fact is he can't box. He cannot box he has this. That's you his fight against Louis Ortiz. Recently he was getting shut out every round he knocked him out. May One St Right. And so what? What fury did there were so great when he took the fight to wilder and he had wilder backing up like around one. I was watching a fight with some guys. And we're like the body language or walters. Now he's backing up all of a sudden he's never nobody knew that right and he lunges with throws the right he steps for with his left and then lunges. You can't do that if you're backing up. And he wants. He took a fury. Took that away from him. He had no answer no he doesn't jive with a as a weapon. He does it to measure so I get the right right. He can't dance. I was even saying it may be equilibrium. Was just off but once after the third round. He looked out on his feet. I was saying run. Just move until you can get your wits about you or whole you wits about you. And he didn't even know how to do that. Look he showed a lot of heart. He showed tremendous heart because a punch drunk for the last four. But and I'll say this finally. I hope I'm wrong. I don't think he can bounce back. I don't think I think the best chance. He has the balance about that. Furio bounce back thinking fury. I think his best chance of bouncing back is to fight Joshua and maybe beat him but here you know you're the bully and then you get bullied and we've seen it. George Forman it's a religious conversion and fifteen. Here's a preaching to become when he became when he was a whole different person that one Tyson was never quite the same age. Because you're not the same in your own mind nor do you have that intimidation opponents and Roy Jones. Junior wasn't a bully but he was dominant you. Once he got beat he was never this guy. I just mentally. It's GonNa be so hard for him to bounce back I again. I don't think he could be fury. I definitely don't think it'd be fury but I have trouble in general so going back in history. This is what me very late on Saturday night. I picked wilder in a second round knockout because I thought after Tyson fury had all week predicted. I'm going to knock him out in the second round that he would get a little careless and be vulnerable to the one punch. That deontay did have in that. That Punch you could argue is about as lethal as any punch. We've seen in the history of boxing. I don't know if I've ever seen him more savage right than that one in all it takes is one. Is You know and that? Big trees going to topple. But you have to catch him flush and he wasn't able to catch him with it so we're my head. Went back to a fight. That I wrote about was that I watched. I didn't go to just watched it here. That was the rumble in the jungle. I haven't been more shocked by the strategy and the unfolding of a fight than than I have since I sat watching Ali something that I thought was impossible to the beast. Who Was George Foreman and remember in those days George? Foreman weighed two hundred and fifty pounds. He didn't wait to seventy three. And I thought that was beyond massive and Ali Wade to twenty for that fight so he was given up thirty pounds but he wound but he games he had gained. Wait to find out by hand by. I totally agree but I did not see rope adult coming. Because I don't think he's corner. Saw Rope it upcoming. He didn't tell anybody and he goes and lays against the ropes and let he had worked on his core all through his camp and he just put his gloves on and he just said is that all you got champ. Is that all you got and you just kept trying to chop wood until he just chopped himself down
