"For the troops to get there. For the cavalry to arrive, but for him to be able to slow up the onslaught of pedraza. It was brilliant. It wasn't talked about. But it was instinctive. It was his innate intelligence to understand what he had to do. It just at that moment when he was faced with survival, with winning the losing. What he needed to do, how he needed to behave and react. And he did. And he held him off enough with for the rest of them. He lost some of those late rounds. That's what made it close. But he was able to also hold enough ground in those late rounds with delete that he built for the first 7 rounds to win a fight by two three points. And keep his title. That's what I saw. That's what I appreciate it. That's what I wanted to fans to make sure that they could see it and appreciate. All the dimensions that go into this great sport. You know, mentally, emotionally, you know, technically, physically. Everything. So that was a terrific fight, really. I applaud both guys. They both behave like champions, but rather behaved like a former champion and bob boss of behaved like a champion who's just not ready to be a former champion. He's just not ready to be a former one. Not yet. Not yet. I love that. I love that pod from the movie. Gladiator, where they got the guys that are the gladiators, right? And Russell Crowe, you know, who's the great general? What's his name, general arm that became a slave? Maximus. Maximus maximum. How can I get back from a great maximus? And so maximum is with these with all these other slaves now gladiators and one of them is having a conversation before they go into another one of these death matches basically. And the guy says, do you believe in the afterlife? And maxim is the great maximus says, yes, I do. Do you believe you'll be with your family in the afterlife? He goes, yes, I do. But not yet. I love that. He goes, but not yet. Not yet. Create diet today. We ate diet today. I love it. And that's kind of what it was with Barbosa that someday he will have to probably have his title taken away from him. Somebody had taken away from him, but not yet. Not yet. Well, in the, in the main event, Emanuel navarrete lamb lamb Smith, lamb Wilson, what an incredible fight this was back and forth back and forth, both guys were awesome, but you know who wasn't awesome was referee Chris Flores. I think for me, the biggest takeaway, the only thing I could look forward in that portfolio. I mean, teddy knocks him done. That boy at that point found that was rough, I know. Never read some questions. I mean, he was out. He got caught a good shot. I think it hit him like he was way too much. I think they added up it was like 27. They didn't even talk about it, which was able to watch. It was crazy. It's like watching a crime. It's like watching a banker, rob. And you just watching a bank robbed and you watch, you're watching something, somebody get robbed down the street and you just stand in it saying, hey, you know, what are you getting for lunch? Are you getting tuna again today? Or you're gonna switch over to the chicken salad. Hey, there's something going on over here. There's a vertical going on here. I've been using for us to watch and kind of dismiss as business as usual. But just think for a second, really think about this. If that's your son, brother, best friend, how pissed off are you sitting there watching ref, what are you doing? Let's go get back at it. I haven't too often. That was his chance, man. This kid was an 18 to one underdog. I had no dog in this fight. I don't care who wins. Yeah, I will say this. I will. I miss him. I'm with you. The kid had a chance to do something special and the ref did everything he could to help that kid again. Probably never have it again. Probably never have it against like seeing Hailey's comet. You missing your message, seeing the eclipse of the moon. The total eclipse of the seriously. If you're not there at 10 o'clock on Monday night on December 8th, if you're not out there on that date, that they tell you that it's happening. You ain't seen it again. It's gone. It's done. Well, a lot of times that's what this is. You're right. This is their one shot. Everything lined up perfect for them. I never met for the title. If they don't, if they don't get it done, that day they ain't getting it done ever again. Get into one underdog. He had the kid hurt very badly with time to finish him. Who knows? Maybe he doesn't at the end of just, but I mean, can you please be fair? Can you please just count because if the roles were reversed, they would have been like, that ref would have given him the frigging as soon as he hit 8. He'd be like, go ahead. As soon as he realized the guy could still stand up, but nope, not this time, they made sure that he was perfectly fine. They did what they could to make sure he was recovered, but man, you have to feel for Lim Smith. And like I said, I had no dog in the fight. I don't care either way. I didn't care who won. But I love a competitive fight and you just hate to see someone get cheated. This just blatant cheating on behalf of the ref. I don't care. You can sugarcoat it however you want. You have one job, dude. You're the ref. Give the guy an 8 count. Make sure he's okay to continue and let's go. Not 27 seconds while you messing around with malt pieces and everything. Man, it's just a heartbreaking for the kid lamb Smith. I hate to see it. Never Rhett ends up stopping him. I think what's at the 9th, I'm sorry. I should know this, but he stopped him later at night. He knocked him down a couple times. He hadn't heard about it. It was a good stop, and she was out, it was over. It took over the 7 to 8 to 9th. The night. Listen, welcome to my world friend. All right, buddy. Welcome to my world. Almost 30 years of watching this stuff calling the fights on ESPN scene it over and over and over and over and over again. I mean, really, it does something to you after a while. It's like a 100%. It really, you know, to the point where I was trying to put together a national commission to stop this stuff. You know, with the late senator John McCain, the late great senator McCain, who was a hero of this country, you know, in a war. And he was a POW. And it's interesting that I wonder what I wonder what power is working against it. But believe me, there were pals working against it and some of those powers were given money that was public domain. We were able to look it up as we were going down the road with this, they were given our campaign, they were getting put it this way. Those powers that stopped it from happening, you know, in the government that we needed not to stop it from happening. To do what McCain wanted to do, which was to get this national commission which I wanted with other people with me wanted. There were pals in a government that they were getting campaign contributions from certain promoters that you might recognize their names, okay?

"It did. And that's what fighters do when they use when they use the real, when they know how to use distance and range, where you control range where you separate yourself enough where the other guy has to come to you, he's got to get up that hill. You have an edge. That just doesn't last long, just last for two or three punches. Maybe one second where you get those punches off before you close the guy, then it's up to you to get up that hill again. To stay up there and keep that edge, so he never fully gets up the hill. I think that's a great analogy. That's what bob boser did for 8 rounds. 7 rounds, 7 full rounds he did, but then finally, I gave credit to Barbosa for following his game plan. I got to give credit to my man pedraza from following his, because his, it didn't look like it at the beginning because he was losing those rounds, but his was to keep pressure, keep it up, keep it up, keep it up until it finally. What do I say all the time? Pressure breaks pipes. Pressure breaks people. Pressures like on a July day. I wanted to use that dollar night. On a July day where you got a little puddle out there, Ken, right? Laying out there on the asphalt. You got a little water out there. And it's hot. And all of a sudden a puddle starts to evaporate. Right in front of the eyes. And then you come back 30 minutes later, there's no puddle. That's what pressure to fight does. And that's what pedras was hoping would happen. And he stuck to it. Does son of a gun he's a real pro. He's stuck to his plan. He kept the pressure on for 7 rounds, 8, and in the 8th round, the puddles started to evaporate. Yep, Barbosa started to crackle. He started to crack a little bit, and he started to get to him, and it became really, really interesting, but rather started to have his way a little bit. But what really made it a really interesting terrific fight was you gotta peek as I often say. You know, you want to look at the card to race cars, great. You know, you look at both like a car, the tires, everything looks great, you know, it's running good, you know, but you want to pick up the hood and you want to make sure that the carburetor and everything is there for the long haul. You'll want to make sure it's got the goods under the hood. Guess what? The hood got lifted in the 8th round and Barbosa showed that he's got the goods. He did what I often talk about again. Not just showed he knew how to fight like a champion. He knew how to behave like a champion. Even more important. He knew how to behave like a champion. And he did. He behaved like a champion. And what did he do? He lost that round there. You know, he started having trouble, but he made it decision. Very smart. Where in the commentators didn't really touch on this, but he made it decision and good. I'm just saying that for my viewpoint, I can only see it from my viewpoint. The comments that I would make is that he'd been boxing all night long, being on top of the hill, controlling range, catch and pedraza, before he could get close to him. Now he realized it was kind of like those old western movies. When the Indians started to come to the fort and you got to hold the fort and they're starting to come over the wall. You got a man a wall. You got a man to wall and you gotta have people on that wall. That's kind of what bother did. He said, they're coming to take the fort, but droughts is looking to really overrun this fight. I got to put men on the wall and instead of continuing to move backwards and retreat and give up ground. He would have got run over. He would have gotten run over. But instead, he meant the fort. He stood with him. He stood with him. A lot of people would have said, oh, I'm not so sure about that. He was sure about it. He behaved like a champion. Can he knew that he had to make a stand? If he kept moving, the way that for the first 7 rounds, he would have gotten caught because as it was going backwards, it was common with great confidence now, great speed now. And he would have caught him. He would have caught him going backwards and in spiral would have continued. The momentum would have continued and pedras his way and put browser would have started to dominate the fight. That's what would have happened. But he's stood. He locked in. He grabbed the floor and he stood there. And in front of, and that is one of fight for him. Then later on, he was able to go back and spot to a little bit of, you know, being on top of the hill separate himself, getting a little bit of distance and looking account. But he had to make enough of his stand,

"My scorecards are always perfect and everybody always agrees with me, so. Oh, me too. I wouldn't know the feeling. I wouldn't know the feeling on that. I never hear from his own watchers about the scorecards. All right, I want to jump into what's become a messy situation with a 140 pound title, at least the WBC's version of it. Just a couple of months ago, really one month ago now. We had Regis pro great win the WBC's version of the title becoming a two time 140 pound champion terrific performance in that fight against Jose pedraza. Excellent performance. And Jose. And he kind of looks, Jose is a penis, or I just saw pedraza. So looking at his future now, he was hoping to get a fight his next fight against José Ramírez. The WBC rules that the purse split is going to be 60 or 70, 30 originally in favor of Regis program. That was altered to be 65 35. Ramirez not happy with that. Has withdrawn from negotiations for that fight. The WBC has ruled that pro grade can take a voluntary defense, though I don't know who program would fight at this point. Nor do I think he wants a volunteer defense at this point. What do you make of Ramirez's decision to back out of this fight? It's disappointing. It's almost like they went into this conversation thinking 65 35, huh? Like they had no idea what was going on, which is just not true because the general consensus in the WBC mandatory fights is a 60. It is typically a 70 30 split. There are many occasions where they will amend the purse split and make it 65, 35. Occasionally they might boost it to 60 40 depending, but that's not the most common thing. And so people should, first of all, a couple of things about that, Chris. Number one, the purse split is just in the event that it goes to a person. There's nothing that says it has to be a certain percentage if the two sides during the course of their allowable time frame to do a private negotiation come up with whatever formula they come up with. So that was only in the event if the teams couldn't make the deal. So they had every opportunity to make a deal. As you mentioned, program I'm sure would be have been happy to negotiate with them and I feel like top rank, which is the promoter for José Ramírez would have been willing to negotiate a deal as well. So I kind of find that to be a cop out. They didn't go to a person. That doesn't feel like there was ever a true negotiation. Number one, number two, back before Regis progra got the opportunity to fight as a paid for the vacant title. The fight that had been ordered when Josh Taylor vacated was to fill that vacancy between José Ramírez and Jose zapata, which was which would have been a rematch of an extremely difficult fight that José Ramírez had when he was

"All right. Anybody have any guesses? The sounds like a large crowd of some kind of animal. I was going to say it has kind of like a South Park like rubble rubble rubble vibe to it. It's proud of something. Yeah, there's definitely a crowd of something. Sure. Well, Rick Wilson wrote in and said, you may want to smack me for saying this. But that sounds like a recording that Art Bell played on coast to coast supposedly some Russian group drilled several miles into the earth's crust sent out a microphone. Yes. Yes, it got back sounds of hell. That's a real news item. Yes, it is. I'm going to tell you rich. I think you're partially correct. Because the sounds of hell were obviously stolen from somewhere else because they didn't actually know no sound engineer put together this cool sound of what hell would sound like. They just found a noise and thought it was provocative and so let's use this. I'm pretty sure that's what happened. Anyway, none of this surname Ben wrote in and said, hi, Ben here from Japan. Is it the sound from the deepest borehole in Siberia allegedly recording the 70 series? People writing in about this hell sound. Cool. I got like 6 or 7 people that were keyed in on that. I love it. So thank you both. That was like a I like to remembering that because that was a long time ago. Another listener wrote in Shane hillier, AJ was this week about 10,000 flamingos. Oh neat. Yeah, that actually kind of does sound like a bunch of large bird type animals. That's not correct, but that's a really, that's a good guess. Another listener named George marchessini Marquez marques. My God. Marquess. Ennis, Marcellus. Thank you. George Marcellus. Hi Jay. I reckon I have it this time. I think this week's noisy is a colony of penguins in Antarctic. If I had to guess specifically, I guess emperor penguins. Another is a good guess, you know, a whole bunch what do you call a bunch of penguins, guys? Anybody know? Oh, a wattle. A lot of would be good. A huddle? We'll go with that for the night. A waddle of penguins. Let's go. It is not. I have a close guest this week. Max westmin ronin. Hi Jay, my guess for this week's episode 9 O one noisy is some kind of husky convention. It sounds like hundreds of disgruntled huskies in a big room. Love the show been listening for years. That's a really good guess. Max, because the actual answer is that this is a pack of Iberian wolves all howling together. Oh, cool. Yeah, so. A pack. So there was probably a dozen or so. And I got to interject for a second. So yeah, pack of wolves, Evan was right, waddle of penguins. And thank you. Flamboyance of flamingos. Oh, that's perfect. So what these wolves do, according to the Internet, is that what they do this right before they're about to start hunting to disorient and scare their prey. So it's very coordinated and they all just start doing it and it's pretty interesting and also a little bit terrifying if you heard this. I mean, imagine hearing that close to you while you were out camping as an example. That would not be a good sound. Right? Any campers out there? Clearly never camped in a national park in Africa. Yeah, you know what I'm talking about. There's lots of groups of animals making lots of sounds. So anyway, thank you so much, David for sending that in. That was a really fun noisy. I have a new noisy for you guys this week, and this noisy was sent in by a listener from Poland named John pedraza and I will say this. John says he's a 12 year listener. He was finally able to hear something that he thought it sounded cool enough. And then he said I am out in Poland feeding soldiers in the Ukrainian conflict. Oh wow. Which is very commendable, very, very awesome thing to do because the world needs people that are on the good side for crying out loud. And he says also for bob, my frigging birthday is Halloween. Ah, what a good question. Yeah. That's a cool, that's a great birthday. Okay, so let's do this. All right, I admit. This week's noisy is going to be very difficult to guess. It was such a cool, interesting sound. I wanted to play it. All right, ready? So if you think you know what the sound is, or you heard something really cool this week, you could email me directly. You could send files to this email address. You could attach files, you know, it better than going through the website, wtn at the skeptics guide dot org. Steve, we have some, we have some great stuff coming up. I have been working on the extravaganzas because these are holiday themed extravaganzas. These may very well be the very last holiday themed ones we do. And the very first, you know, because it just happens that we're doing this right before Christmas and this has never happened before. And I probably won't let it happen again just because it's complicated. But anyway, we're having fun, there's lots of things that are going into this that make this holiday themed. So please do join us. We also have two SGU podcast recordings, right? So each one of these, one of these is going to be happening in Phoenix and one is going to be happening in Tucson just like the extravaganza shows. And people ask while point out, these are two completely different shows. The SGU plus shows are different episodes. But also, you know, this is really an expanded show. We're doing not just a live recording of the show. We're going to be doing interactive stuff with the audience interactive games or segments or whatever. It's going to really be a much bigger thing than just watching the recording. And of course, we'll have plenty of time to hang out and sign books and take photographs and answer questions and do other stuff. So we really are trying to build this out into a much bigger thing. Just well beyond just the private recording. All right, thank you, Jay. So we have one email this week, this comes from Corey Meyer from Holland, Michigan. And Corey writes, I have seen reports of an increased rate of bell's palsy in people who have gotten a COVID vaccine or booster. I've also heard that COVID, the disease is a higher risk of causing bell's palsy and that it is only temporary if it occurs. Should I be concerned about this and if it were to happen, what is the prognosis, thanks, love the show. That's actually a great question, Cory. Yeah, this has been coming up a lot, these question of is there an association of correlation between bell's palsy and either COVID or the COVID vaccine? First for some background. So bell's palsy is paralysis of one of the facial nerves, which we did on the left side of your face or the right side of your face gets weak and it droops and it's both the forehead and the lower face both upper and lower. And technically it's anything that happens from the facial nerve nucleus in the brainstem outward like including the nerve, but most of the time it's in the nerve itself and it's specifically in the facial canal, which is a bony canal where the nerve exits through the skull. There is why it happens there is because there's no room for the nerve to expand, so if you get a viral infection that happens to affect the nerve at that point, the nerve swells, it gets crushed in the bony canal, and that's where the damage occurs. The prognosis for this is pretty good. Most people recover well, although recovery can be partial, meaning you get most of your strength back, but you may be left with a little bit of asymmetry. One side of the face is just a little bit weak. And we usually characterize it as like, is this something that a neurologist will notice on a very careful exquisite neurological exam? Is it something that the patient notices when they look at themselves in the mirror? Or is this something that another person would notice looking at them? And then beyond that, is there any functional limitation? Do people have trouble eating? Because they're drooling out that side of their face. Do they have trouble fully closing their eyes at night to their eyes or dry in the morning? Et cetera. So that's a rare cases people can have permanent severe paralysis. They really doesn't recover at all. And in most cases, people have pretty good recovery, but maybe left with some slight residual. So this is usually caused by a virus again about, I think, a third of the time or so it's a herpesvirus.

"One on one I honestly I don't talk about I don't talk you need you have to you have to hide on talk like that. We talk very basic, we talk about the strategy and we talk about sticking to the program because there's no, there's no road map to knocking this kid out. At least not yet. You know, there's nothing there's nothing to say. Okay, listen, you do this. I know you definitely can knock them out. So the goal is the goal is the win every round. Yeah, I agree with you. Round one, let's start let's start winning the rounds first and let him start going for him knockout. So we could put the pressure on him. That's reversing it. As we reverse, put the pressure on him, let him say, you know, let his corner see that that's the whole thing. When you got such a good fighter like him, if you were able to disrupt the corner, then you could get it in the fighter's head and force him to do something that he was initially ready to do at that point. And that's how you were able to get other things happening that you may want. I mean, I want to control what you can control, you can not control the judges. I wish we could, but you can't. So control. And to be clear, I disagree with the whole judging thing, but I just think that that's like an inevitability that almost has to be addressed, but from your perspective. You're right. But from his perspective from the trainer's perspective, his job is not to worry about that, not to touch on that. Just to get his fight of mentally and physically and technically, ready to do what he has to do to have the best chance to beat Canelo. Well, I know you got the right strength coach over there and Chris camacho. He's a good man. Now he is, and you got the right PR man over there, mister Jonathan. With Fred sternberg, where is he? Does he allow himself? Oh, he's working. We are always working. The best p.m. man in the business. Mister Fred sternberg. All right, Fred, did I say everything you asked me to? No, pay me later. Yeah, you know what? With all kidding aside Jonathan, you have nothing but good people in that camp. Fred and Chris and obviously golovkin and yourself Yahoo good people. I just wish nothing but good things for good people. I've always felt that way. And I'll continue to feel that until I'm not on this earth anymore. So unless Ken has anything else to say I will thank you for the people that are going to watch an interview Watson enjoy this interview. I will thank you from us for taking the time out of camp to talk to us and as I said to other great fighters like golovkin and others not only thanks for what you're doing or ring, but thanks for the way that you conduct yourself outside the ring. And thank you for the way you conduct yourself as a man. Outside of the ring. It means a lot to me, thank you. Thank you, Jonathan, appreciate your time and best of luck. And I would love to speak to you after you get the win in this next fight. Thank you, looking forward to it. Best of luck, best of luck. Thank you. Thank you guys. Appreciate the time. I want you so easy to stand up to the song hold up the middle of the gun

"Is obviously, it's a little bit of a focus because the counter the counter and with the right, the right hands over the top. It's not so much of a such a big influence that the whole we had a whole course on it. So therefore, for me, if he got his rhythm like he, like, I want him to. He doubled in that jab pulling back and triple in that job. That's going to stop the counter. So far, now he got to put his hands up and start coming. Because once he once he don't get that counter, once he thinks. But you don't get his way. The job get double, then he got to come with something else. Ken, please. Yeah, teddy touched on earlier about the first two fights in that he thought that triple G, one on both certainly the first, I think most people feel that does it enter your mind at all that you probably have to knock them down several times or out to get this win because I mean, look, Canelo is like the golden goose, right? If triple G's getting towards the end of his career, I think the establishment probably benefits more from Canelo getting a decision and we've seen every indication that that will be the case on any fight that's close with Canelo beeville, beat them almost in every round. They couldn't avoid that one. But is that something you guys think about and consider in the preparation for the fight? Think about all the scenarios about needing like I needed and I got needed to knock out, but when I talked to me and the fighter said one on one I honestly I don't talk about I don't talk you need you have to you have to hide on talk like that.

"I agree that he should have won that fight. I thought he won both Facebook. Right. So going from there, I think, and another thing that you brought the people of, that's another thing that's going to make this therapy different. Because up until the B roll fight, every decision that was either closed or maybe a gap went Canelo's way. Yes. So now he got a decision that didn't go as well. So that's what's going to that's what's making this fight a little bit more intense because can that all now feels that he needs to knock out the win? Yeah. Yeah. So, but that's your question, we looking for, I want you to start off boxing. That's what I would like. Yeah, 'cause I think who's good at doing that. Are you influenced at all? This is part of it. Are you influenced at all? Forget about that golovkin. We talked about that already that is 40 years old now. But are you influenced in your strategy and prep for this fight? At all by the fact that Canelo is now the big a man. I don't know if it's Mexican beef or hamburgers or whoppers. I don't know what it is. I have no idea. But whatever. He has insisted that this fight go up to one 68. Golovkin spent his whole career obviously as one of the greatest middleweights of all time. And now he's got to go up to one 68. How does that play into your prep for this fight? Jonathan, that now you're no longer the bigger guy. It doesn't play much into it because the preparation is the same. Is that like 68 is going to make is going to make him that much of a stronger punching. Yeah. The player in a way does a play in the way that he's a different physical being person than he was before, that he's bigger. He's stronger because face a Canelo has muscles that he never had before. He's got, again, I don't know where the hell they came from, but they're there. Now, does that change a little bit of your strategy? Along the lines of what we've been talking about, that he is stronger now. It doesn't. It doesn't change. It doesn't change it

"I look at bull fights, not on the computer, but mentally because once I, once I recorded here, I play it over and over and over and over. And I go over every little thing, I'll go over everything. So I would like to take a lot of the box and he did in the first way. Yes. And I would like to add a little pressure to it that he didn't put it on in the second part. You know, 'cause I think it's like, doesn't matter who you are. Everybody reacts different to when you start putting pressure on them. Whether whether they whether you force them to become something else and they fight or whether they reveal who they really are, I don't know. But you have to make someone you have to make your opponent in somehow some way of comfortable and I think Canelo is a guy that you have to make uncomfortable. And if he starts, you start boxing, I'm putting pressure on him. If he starts missing, that makes him uncomfortable. You don't like the mist. That's why every fight, every punch is calculated. That's what he started walking guys down. He started walking guys down, and he says, you know if he keep taking, you gonna be there for him the last time. What would you just say, Jonathan? It sounds exactly what beeville did to him. You know? I mean, are you obviously you watched the brivo fight? Are you, what are you taking from that fight? It's hard to take a lot from that fight because I think what you all did, I honestly think G did the first one. You just didn't get the decision. No,

"And when you perform, sometimes when you perform in the stream, heat, you get tired faster. You don't put you don't punch his heart, or you don't go out the opponent as much. But once a year, once the heat, once you used to the heat, it's like a regular day to you now. Yes. And you can fire. You can fight your fight. You don't have to focus on the heat. Now you focus on your opponent. Makes sense. You know, so that the heat was like, it was just, it was something it was the first thing you had to overcome. And once you overcame that, everything else, everything else. It was just what they were called. It was just great in his waiting for you after that. Teddy, can I jump in here for one sec? Yeah, sure. I have some thoughts on the heat and heat training. I'm a competitive runner, Jonathan. And in running, they would always say that he and humidity is the poor man's altitude. And I would argue having trained it altitude and trained in the intense heat I live in Nashville. I'm running 90 to a hundred miles a week that the heat actually, when you get into a cooler climate, I feel is more of a benefit having trained in the heat than training it altitude when you get in that comfortable climate on Fight Night or race day. So I think that there's a lot of benefits to training in that heat. And like you said, if you can be comfortable being uncomfortable in that heat when you're out of it, it's like it's like you have another set of lungs. For me, at least, and it makes you focus on all the little things like staying hydrated, recovering, because if you don't, and you go back for another day after you lost ten, 15 pounds in the gym, you aren't going to be able to perform if you haven't done all the little things right. Exactly. Thank you, teddy. No, no problem. I'm glad you brought that up. In other words, I always talk Jonathan about this business. We understand the physicality of the talent. We understand that. But I always talk about it being 75% mental. Would you concur with that? And before you even answer it, a lot of people need to remember, you were a hell of a fighter. You yourself, you were really a good fighter. Yeah, you won. You were good, solid, technical, complete, fighter. And at Cruiserweight cruiser light, I really cruise, I believe, but as boxing 75 percent mental. I agree with you on that. I think it's 75% of men. I believe that. Once you realize all your obstacles are behind you and the only one is in front of you is your opponent. That makes it very easy. Yes. Because when we talk about the hotness in the gym, that was the obstacle, a lot of guys had to overcome. And once they overcame that, at that time, a lot of these big fights that was going on, they leaving from the basement, and they going over to Caesar's palace in Vegas. And fighting outside. Yes. That was a stream he and plus they had the TV lives. It made it even hotter. So therefore, they didn't that's the obstacle. They didn't have to worry about them. Because they were so used to fighting in the heat where they only had a focus on their opponent. So that was a mental obstacle that they overcame. And now they only got to focus on their opponents. So I a 100% agree with you. Learning to be learning to become comfortable in an uncomfortable and violent. Yes. That's all world. That's the world of the prize fighter. And golovkin's first fight with Canelo, Jonathan. He pressed the action. In the rematch, he boxed more. You know, as much as you can tell us, what his strategy and his third fight. Honestly, I'm looking at him and boxing them, yep. And impression him at the same time. Because I don't, I'm looking at, I'm very every night

"We've got Andy Ruiz versus the old war horse Lewis Ortiz, Ruiz a pretty big favorite here at minus minus three 50 plus two 35 on Ortiz personally. I like Ortiz at these odds. I think Rui should win, but Ortiz is a tough guy and I wouldn't be surprised if he gets the win over Ruiz. We'll see what kind of shape Ruiz comes in at. I think Ortiz is like 65 years old now. I'm just kidding, but he's one of those Cuban guys that come over and you don't really know what is. You don't actually know what his real age is, but we'll see. Also, of course, Canelo triple G three mega fight. This is when the golden goose Canelo is in action. The fans turn out myself included. This is going to be a great fight. Intriguing. Canelo -6 25 triple G plus three 50. A lot of wood to lay on the favorite. Over under ten and a half rounds over minus two 50 under plus one 70 personally, I think someone gets stopped in this fight. I don't know why. I mean, obviously they've gone the distance twice, but there's a lot of bad blood here and I think someone gets stopped, but we'll see.

Yes. Oh my goodness. Well, it was summer, winter, spring or fall. That gym stayed as hot as possible. And what was the reason? I know as a train I could guess.

"He's a vision world champion. Loman check mom and shackle gave him a pounding. A pounding. The great heart, the great heart of Comey kept a minute. But it was close, very close to the referee early on. Stopping that fight. After four or 5 rounds, whatever it was. But you got to be cognizant of that. That a human head can only take so many blows. And he was back in the ring pretty fast in this fight. You know, in another tough fight. Comey's going to be an old tough fight. Said face it. That's what he's going to be. And Pedro two. And now he's in another tough fight. I'm just saying that his people have to be pleased. And the commissions for once earn your freaking money. You know, once in a while, if you see, even a guy don't get knocked out, but like an old man shackle 5, you see a guy takes a lot of punches. And inordinate amount of punches. Please do your freaking job and say, you know what? We want him to stay out of the ring for X amount of time. Give him a little longer rest. This way if the people around them don't know how to do it or are inclined to do it, whatever reason, then at least let a commission who's supposed to look out for the welfare of the fighter. It's supposed to be part of their responsibility. Let them do it. Again, you got to keep an eye on a guy on all fighters. But suppose that guy who fights like call me with his heart with his soul who takes punches to give punches at times and it took a lot in the long circle fight. He was in another tough freaking fight he had ten rounds. He doesn't get any easy ones, but now at this point in his career, watch him. You people out there that the commissions, the people that, again, are mandated with this responsibility, supposedly, and of course, also his people, come on, watch them. Give them a rest. He's had two tough fights back to back. Give him a rest before he gets back in that squared circle. Yeah, I couldn't agree more. I mean, you described it perfectly. Like you said earlier, very slow weekend this past weekend, but one of the fights that we touched on a little bit last week, but just revisit Andy Ruiz back in action against an aging Louis Ortiz lying on this one, teddy for the guys at my bookie, Ruiz is a huge favorite here, minus three 85 plus two 40 on Ortiz, I think that I think that maybe, you know, I've seen a lot of people say that Ortiz may be a live dog in this fight, but I also think that people may be underestimating the degree at which he is sliding. He's old. I mean, you know, with these Cuban fighters it's hard to get an idea of what their real age is. And I don't know, I'm going to look and see what they have Ortiz listed as, but what are your thoughts on that line and the fight in general? What's the line? Give it to me again. Ruiz minus three 85 or T's plus two 40. Well, T's has a punch was shot. He's experienced, oh, by the way, I'd be remiss if I didn't say guys stay on here after we're done with this. This is going to be a fairly short one. Stay all we got Jonathan banks to train up the great triple J in training camp. We got him coming up in a great insightful interview coming up right after this. So please, you're going to enjoy it. You're going to enjoy it. But getting back to that. Ortiz has a bunch of changes to southport. This one I'm positive about. He's a southpaw. He can bang with the left hand, he is 40 or maybe 41 or whatever. List it as listed as 43. 43. Okay. On box rec, but there are people that claim he's much older than that. Whatever is about to get the great Cuban pitcher for the Yankees that came over. You know, he defected from Cuba. Nobody ever knew how old he was. I think he pitched his last game, he was 85. But so he went to high school with me. Yes. So I just, I think that he has a bunch of shots still. Obviously, the line is probably right. I would favor Ruiz. Ruiz looked horrible and his last fight with Chris Arreola, an older Chris at 40 year old areola who heard him several times in a very game. Ariel is one of my favorite guys. He's a tough, tough, tough son of a you know what. But he's taken a lot of punishment. He's been around a long time. And he caught Ruiz buoys to look good. He caught him a lot. He heard him a lot. Maybe Ruiz lost too much weight was no trainer. Canelo's trainer maybe lost too much weight. But whatever the reason, he got hit a lot. And if Ortiz can hit him like that, as easily as that. He's got a chance. He's got a chance. I would go with the yonder, would stay under now one. Do they have one? Yep. Yep, so over 9 and a half at plus one O 5 under 9 and a half minus one 50. Yeah, all right, so they're not that dumb. They know what they're doing. Yeah, I would probably go with the under. So you laying, hey, if you're going to bed go with the under maybe. Make sure you can bet. You make sure you got that extra box, don't bet your responsibly was serious about that. You're only better if you have obviously you have to extra money. But I would say that you don't have to lay the heavy wood on one side of the other if you take in a favored. I mean, if you like the underdog, take them. Go ahead. But I would lean more towards laying a little bit the one 50 and going with the under probably gives you, you know, give you a little bit maybe of a better shot. And that kind of way. The one thing I wanted to say about the pedras fight before we finish up over here, unless you have something else, is that pedraza and Comey quadratic did some and I tweeted about this. I say he's got to use his jab and he's got to go to the body. He went to the body, put water in a basement like I used to say over ESPN when I was caught on a face. He went to the body of call me. He was getting older. He was smart, really smart to go to the body. And it really paid dividends. I always would say going to the body in boxing is like putting money in a bank. You put money in your own private vault. I know that. And you have gods that are around it. But for the average person that puts money in the bank, you're going to get interest. If you leave it in there, you're going to get interest. And that's what body punching is for me. Where you go to the body early in the fight you stay there. You're going to get paid interest dividends later in the fight. And you know what? But draws a guy paid dividends. Call me who is very aggressive. I know they had butt came in too. But call me who was very aggressive, slowed down. He slowed down later in the fight, Ken. And the reason he slowed down the body worked. The water in the basement. It took something that it took some starch at him. It took a little petrol out of the gas tank. And for those young aspiring fighters out there, it's so it's not glitzy. It's not the sizzle, but it's so important. It's so important to go to the bias. What I hate sometimes about the amateur programs is they don't teach the body work enough because it's a dream round fight, whatever it is nowadays. And it goes fast and it's all about throwing a lot of punches. Sometimes they forget about defense. It's just about score, score, score. Instead of learning all the prop elements of the sweet science, all the dimensions of the Swedish defense kind of punch and everything and body work.

"I know he was because I was watching him throw a right hand to jab. It's just that I never liked to make mistakes. So I'm always, I'm always making sure. But in the meantime, pedraza came out showing that dimension to him, you know, where he could do more trousers on pedraza on box rec as listed as an orthodox fighter. All right, then maybe I wonder if let's see. I wonder if I want the switching back to be switched. Yeah, he may have slippers. They're both listed as orthodox center. I'm pretty sure. Yeah, I'm pretty sure that he switched. But I'm almost positively switched southpaw. And the fans will right away will they will send messages to you, Ken, and say, yeah, teddy was right. He did swear, or teddy was wrong. But either way, we, he was, he was able to do as I said, he's got more in his toolbox. So he could do more. But Comey is a game strong, and he had the physical edge. More physicality, better punch a more explosive. And he turned it around. Early on, he took a little control that fight called me, where he timed some beautiful love talks. The commentators were talking right here, right there, right? And listen, rightfully so, the right hander called me as well known. He does damage with that. But he did damage with the love talk. Maybe that was smart because he knew what drugs would be looking for the right hand tool. And sure enough to experience call me he went in a time of good love talks, he shook up, put drasa. He took control of the fight. And quite frankly, Ken pedras call me was fighting with more urgency, like early, like he knew this was life and death for him like you said for bob fighters. They had the windows fight to get back to another title fight. And he really showed it. Comey was fighting with that urgency. And then something happened. I don't remember what round to 6 rounds somewhere around there. There was a head clash. And it changed the temple. It changed the temple dramatically. We all of a sudden put brazza, who had been boxing and having his spots back and forth, but all of a sudden he took control. The temple went his way. The rhythm of the fight when his way after the head clash will call me got a cut over his left eye. And it was bleeding into the eye a little bit distracted with a little bit and he took advantage of it. And he started to take control. And he took control of the fight and to the 8th round. And then call me. That's what made it such a good fight, though. Ebbs and flows back and forth. Call me came back and call me to control the 8th. Then the night round draws and came back and puts her took back control. And I don't put crowds who took that control to the Ted Brown and then call me the game game call me. They're both game. But call me made a run at him and what a gentleman call me is. They both are. They both conduct themselves the way you want fighters to conduct themselves in and outside the ring as gentlemen as well as fighters. And at the end of the round towards the end of the round, call me made a run. And he tightened it up a little bit. I thought pedrosa is still wondering around. I had pedraza, probably with an edge in a fight, but you know what? It turned out to be a draw. I'm not arguing. You hear me argue a lot of times about the decisions. And I say it passionately. I say with my heart and soul, you know, because it matters. It matters when they robbed these freaking kids. But this one, I also say, I don't, I don't really have a problem with a draw. Like I said, maybe a little edge to put draws up, but the way the fight had ebbs and flows back and forth, I'm comfortable with the draw in that fight. And both fighters probably are because they got to they got to stay execution of your will. You know, I'm just like, it was a must win for both. And now they get another shot. Maybe at a rematch or whatever. The one thing I want to add to this. I've been in this business 50 years and obviously I love the business and I love what it's all about. I just don't love the administration of the business, the people who run it outside. But the fight is, I love my respect for my caring about them. I think we ought to, and ESPN. That's why I used to call ballistic when they rob a kid because I knew the dangers that they face. I knew like I used to say that every time they got to ring, they were getting out of the ring with Muslims themselves. And along those lines can I want to say that Comey took a real big beating in his last fight with lomachenko. He really did. I know lowman cycle don't punch like tank Davis, but he's a hell of a fighter, however technician, a hell of a busy fighter. He hits you cleaning. It's just solid he's a two time gold

"Your point. It's a responsible point. Someone's going to get hurt. But the executives football baseball players, many of the other major points. They'd notice. But you know what the problem is. First of all, it takes up a slide of TV time. It fills the sleight of TV time. They have to fill programming, right? Everyone needs programming if you own a network. So it is cheap compared to the hockey and basketball baseball and football boy, even though it's 90,000 they got to pay on top 5 a year or 90 million upside 90 million, a year or whatever. That's what it was at the beginning. And they had a four year deal that they extended to 7 years. It's still small compared to the other major sports that finds what they have to pay for programming. But what the problem is, if it was the other sports, the executives would notice, and they would watch. They don't watch. They don't give a damn. They don't watch boxing. And they don't know boxing. It's the truth. They know something about baseball. Something about bears pose some about hockey. Some about football, of course. You know, you're familiar. You brought up with it. But boxing, no. They really don't know. So they don't know really what's good or bad. And you get a con artist like Aaron, who's really, really good. 70 years in a business of bringing guys along of conning people of knowing how to make how to make this thing like that movie years ago, the sting with Robert Redford and Paul Newman. It was a great movie, just think of one another Academy Award. Where he knows how to do the hustle. You know what I mean? He knows how to schmooze. He knows how to talk to these guys. Even when it comes to the commentary. Again, if they heard some of the commentary once in a while, I'm not necessarily saying to them. I'm saying across the board. But because you got a couple of X fight instead ESPN know what the hell did they do a good job? But then some of the other guys, and again, with some of the other networks too, if you heard some of these things, sometimes you scratch your head. What the freak is he talking about? What fight is it called? Now, again, if an executive was even up watching, would stand not for boxing. They all for baseball football basketball, but not for this. But if they were, they would say, wait, that don't sound right. But when they hear something that's a little bit ridiculous, they don't know it's ridiculous. Again, enough familiar with the sport of pugilism. So they don't know. They don't know if it's David's good, bad and different. They don't know. And that's the problem. That's why they're going to burn it up again. They're going to burn it up again, you watch. Mark my words mark this date down that on this day, teddy Atlas said that ESPN is going down the same route that they went down in the 70s and 80s and I don't know how long it's going to take against at least 7 years because they got a 7 year contract. But eventually they're going to realize that they're going to wise up and they're going to see the bottom line and they're going to say, oh my God, all we do is put on one sided fights. So top leg can build up that fight. So they can have a stable fighters of champions and we're being used. And you know what? The public. You guys, you're being used to. I mean, some of you are smart enough to get off the train. Get off the track before you get run over by the train. The train that's going to put you to sleep to try and cause some. That's the name of his salmon eggs to express, by the way. Yeah, you're smart enough to see and say, hey, I ain't painted to this. I'm not buying into this. But a lot of fans go along. They love to spot. They go along, it takes them a long time to wise up. But they make it suck 'cause really. They've been done as well. They're good at it. They're making suckers out of everybody. They really are. And again, you get a bone. You get the bone every once, okay. Appreciate it, I wish there was a little more meat on the bone, but hey, it's nice to get a bone. Every once in a while. But I had to say that, you know, it's the truth. It's one of the reasons why I'm not commenting or commentating anymore. Obviously there. But now we'll get to the pedraza. Comey fight can it was a solid fight. It was a good fight. It was well matched. We always give bravos to the UFC matchmaker, makes a lot of good matches. Well, they made a good match here. It was a real good solid fight, two former champions, and a bit of a crossroads fight, like you just said appropriately, where a fighter urgency for both guys career and I thought I thought from the outset the way I handicapped it the way I tweeted on the fight. So I said a lot of this stuff early. The problem was I was tweeting, I was tweeting and sending them out to Italy and rob was sleeping already. So I and Ian Mackey, the Grady and Mackey. He was helping. He's Stanford. Yeah, Stanford guy. He's a genius, that's beyond us. He should be at Nassau, not working with teddy Atlas and can write out. But anyway, he got him up, but he was going out to dinner too. So he got him up afterwards, so I did them live to the fight, but then he put them up a little bit afterwards. And listen, it wasn't a million people watching this, but again, we're doing this show because every fan out there, we want to satisfy everyone. We want to consider everyone. We want to respect everyone. So we know there's going to be fans out there that are going to talk about this fight, even if it's not as many as last week when we got 300,000 views. But we still value that we bring you the information that data to the fights that you guys look for. So we were doing this fight again. It was just like I tweeted it was a well matched fight. I gave Pedro to the edge and be integrity better more rounded more dimensional. He had legs, he could use the ring. The other guy called me was more one dimensional, but being also a southpaw had that dimension to him too. And he is the South Pole. I want to be sure. Just verify that for me, Ken, as I'm talking.

"As always by the voice of combat sports, the great teddy Atlas. Teddy, how you doing? Good, good. Good to see you. You look groomed. Getting down to middleweight. Yeah, I've lost 28 pounds. So I can see a huge difference now. I'm not in middleweight. You know, unless the people that control the scales and the WBC or the WBA are managing the scales, then maybe. Maybe if I paid my Cormier or Daniel Cormier is holding your top. Well, if I paid my sanctioned fees, I might be able to make middleweight for the W for the right price. You'd be feather. Paperweight public. You know, the world of technology is amazing. I still have a fax machine. A lot of people can see it in the background sometimes. But I'll produce a robbers in Italy on his belated honeymoon, helping to coordinate this show. So I hope that he's having a great time and doing this is not creating his first marital dispute with his wife mala, so I just wanted to give a quick mention to rob. We got Sam here. We got you. I'm here. We're ready to go. I'd like to start by saying something to the fans out there. First of all, thank you. This last week we did the we did the Uzi Joshua reimagine oseman, Edwards you have seen fight in the undercard of that of that UFC caught. We got over 300,000 views when you add up the episode and the clips to that episode all said and done over 300,000 views. That's pretty damn good. That is not too many podcasts out there. There's a few months out there like Joe Rogan. He's Godzilla. But aside from him in a few other monsters, not too many podcasts can say they do that. So I want to really take a minute of gratitude to thank all our fans because upon here, domestically, everywhere that come and believe in this show, they believe in the truth, they believe in us, all opinions, and again, being the x-ray, the cat scan of boxing, where we're going to break it all down, and we're not going to have agendas. All the agenda is to tell the truth. And that's a good agenda. The only thing I want to add to that and I'm sure you will too can is that I would ask and again, I'm so grateful and that's why I'm saying this. I would ask for you to please subscribe. Please tell your Friends also to subscribe besides just viewing. We had 270,000 subscribers. Again, a hell of a number.

And all the sponsors we work with, my book, you feel free, like all that support helps us greatly, you know, there's a lot of expenses associated with recording the show and we really appreciate the fans for sticking with us because like you say all the time, if the fans weren't there, there'd be no need for us or no use for us to keep doing it. So that's a good way to show us that you listen and continue to support its effortless, to subscribe, leave a comment, all those metrics help us. Increase our relevance and let people know that we have this show that is a staple in the combat sports arena. So thank you to everyone. Give those 5 star reviews where you guys 5 stars, baby. Go ahead, take us away that can because there was only one fighter slowed down and slowed down his pairs weekend. But we slow weekend as the summer winds down, but pedraza and Richard Jose pedraza, Richard Comey had a very competitive fight, but before we get into that fight, both guys basically fighting for their careers, I would think they both needed the win. But before we go to the main event, we got to take a trip to the slaughter farm and watch a bunch of sacrificial lambs get fed to the lions essentially. These fights were so non competitive. It's so non competitive that to the point like I'm thinking, does anyone these promoters are not concerned about getting someone hurt here? You put in an inexperienced, unqualified prose with legitimate fighters in some cases. And you're going to get someone hurt. I mean, what's the kid's name, Richard Torres? You're going to have a death on your hands if you keep letting people get in there with a heavyweight that can punch like that. That was insane. It was scary. The guy's face down on the canvas. I mean, guys, you got to get someone in there that's competitive with the kid at least competitive, not one sided, complete sacrifice of a lamb. It was sad to see, but what were your thoughts on that undercard? Yeah, well, it's what they always saw. They're doing what they want to do. The top rank to promote is to do what they can get away with. They do what they did in the 70s and 80s. If we're going to be quite honest and that's where we all are honest with transparent about it, we have no agendas. We don't have for meals. I don't give a damn if people like it or don't like it. I just care that it needs to be said. It hurts how sport at the end of the day there's a price to pay to the networks. They don't realize it, but there is because back in the sonys and 80s top break was with ESPN and after 20 years, they turned it into a pharma system like that doing now, the same formula. It's no different and they signed up their averages. They told them you could be on TV. They used the money from TV to sign them. They told them that early in your career, you're going to be on TV, signed with us. And what they do. They went about putting them in with non competitive, even worse, like you said. It's like watching a lion get raw meat. I mean, if you want to watch a lion track down a gazelle out in the wilderness and slaughter it, put on a nature channel. You know what I mean? But not on ESPN or boxing. But like I said, they did it in the 70s and 80s. Finally, it ran its route. It chased the audience completely away. The executives, they finally woke up and they saw the bottom line and they got rid of them. And then they went with a new program called Friday night fights, which I was part of. And you know what? We excelled. We excelled for 18 years. For 18 years and the formula that was used even promoters every week. You know, so there's competitiveness that they don't get comfortable. It's not one promoter that has a deal for 20 years. And it doesn't matter what it gives you. What crappy gives you. You have to put good fights on. So every week a different promoter would put a show on and if it was up, wasn't up to snuff, he wouldn't get another shot at it. Some of the promoter would get a shot to step in there and do it. And what they do and what they're doing, if you haven't noticed by now, yeah, they sign up to these Olympic kids. Again, they tell them they're going to be on TV. They use the money that they get from ESPN. They sign them up and then for the next two to three years, that's about what it takes to develop a young kid. They just, they feed them raw meat, okay? To build up their records of 14, 15, 16, 17, and all. And then they go and get them a title fight, hope they win a title, and then they can tell the executive sea we got champions. But again, there's a price to pay. Because you're scorching earth, your scorching earth, because you're going to do the same damn thing you did necessarily 70 80s. The same thing. Yeah, you throw bone. You put a good main event on once in a while. But boy, oh boy, those other fights.

"Historic clash the week <Speech_Male> before Canelo, <Speech_Male> then you're into May <Speech_Male> with Canelo and then you're <Speech_Male> into the summer <Speech_Male> with our broader <Speech_Male> roster than gears <Speech_Male> and the Diaz is <Speech_Male> in the Garcia's <Speech_Male> again. <Speech_Male> You're talking about <Speech_Male> a very, very strong <Speech_Male> 5 or 6 month <Speech_Male> play here. So <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> I'm going to take <Speech_Male> the opportunities <Speech_Male> to sleep and rest <Speech_Male> where I can. I don't think there's going to be <Speech_Male> much of that over the summer <Speech_Male> months. Well, Joe, <Speech_Male> I appreciate that <Speech_Male> out for me. Appreciate <Speech_Music_Male> it. Thanks, Chris. <Speech_Music_Female> <SpeakerChange> <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> All right, time <Speech_Male> now for this week's <Speech_Male> picks brought to you <Speech_Male> by FanDuel <Speech_Male> if you have been betting <Speech_Male> with me <Speech_Male> since I <Speech_Male> started doing this in <Speech_Male> January, <Speech_Male> you have probably won <Speech_Male> a decent <Speech_Male> amount of money. Last <Speech_Male> week, I <Speech_Male> told you to take Josh <Speech_Male> Taylor by <Speech_Male> decision over <Speech_Male> Jack Cadillac. <Speech_Male> What happened? <Speech_Male> Josh Taylor <Speech_Male> won <Speech_Male> by decision. This <Speech_Male> week, I'm <Speech_Male> locked in <Speech_Male> on the José Ramírez <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> Jose pedraza <Speech_Male> fight. That is Friday <Speech_Male> night <Speech_Male> in Fresno, <Speech_Male> California, <Speech_Male> 140 <Speech_Male> pound fight between <Speech_Male> Ramirez, a former <Speech_Male> champion at one <Speech_Male> 40 in pedraza, <Speech_Male> one of the more well-known <Speech_Male> names <Speech_Male> in multiple <Speech_Male> weight classes. So, <Silence> ordinarily, <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> I would lean heavily <Speech_Male> towards José <Speech_Male> Ramírez. But I <Speech_Male> have some questions here. <Speech_Male> Ramirez <Speech_Male> has not <Speech_Male> fought since <Speech_Male> May of <Speech_Male> 2021. Now pedraza <Speech_Male> last fought <Speech_Male> in June of <Speech_Male> 2021. So <Speech_Male> he has been <Speech_Male> just as inactive, <Speech_Male> but Ramirez's <Speech_Male> last fight was <Speech_Male> against Taylor. <Speech_Male> He lost a <Speech_Male> big fight, a <Speech_Male> undisputed <Speech_Male> championship fight. <Speech_Male> And I thought in that <Speech_Male> moment, <Speech_Male> that José Ramírez was <Speech_Male> a pretty big guy for a <Speech_Male> 140 pounds. <Speech_Male> Would take that <Speech_Male> opportunity <Speech_Male> to move up and wait. <Speech_Male> He decided to <Speech_Male> stay at one <Speech_Male> 40 and it's going to try to <Speech_Male> get one or <Speech_Male> more of his <Speech_Male> titles back. That <Speech_Male> worries me <Speech_Male> a little bit. Pedraza, <Speech_Male> he has been <Speech_Male> at a 140 <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> plus pounds <Speech_Male> for his <Speech_Male> last four fights. So I think <Speech_Male> he's more comfortable <Speech_Male> at <Speech_Male> this weight. And I think pedraza, <Speech_Male> who's <Speech_Male> losses have <Speech_Male> largely come <Speech_Male> at the highest level <Speech_Male> he was stopped <Speech_Male> by Giovanni Davis, <Speech_Male> he went the distance <Speech_Male> with Vasily lomachenko, <Speech_Male> and he lost. <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> These are <Speech_Male> not bad losses. So <Speech_Male> I <Speech_Male> am going to take <Speech_Male> the underdog <Speech_Male> in this flight. <Speech_Male> That is Jose pedraza <Speech_Male> plus three <Speech_Male> 90 <Speech_Male> over at FanDuel <Speech_Male> right now. And I'm going to take <Speech_Male> him by <Speech_Male> decision, which is at <Speech_Male> plus 5 50. <Silence> Now, one other <Speech_Male> thing here, <Speech_Male> the location <Speech_Male> worries me as <Speech_Male> I make this bet. I <Speech_Male> agonized over this bet <Speech_Male> because of where <Speech_Male> this fight is. Fresno, <Speech_Male> California, <Speech_Male> the home <Speech_Male> region <Speech_Male> of José <Speech_Male> Ramírez. And we <Speech_Male> saw with <Speech_Male> Taylor against catarau <Speech_Male> in Glasgow, Taylor's <Speech_Male> backyard. <Speech_Male> That <Speech_Male> location matters, <Speech_Male> that beating a guy <Speech_Male> on his home <Speech_Male> turf is <Speech_Male> really difficult. But I think pedras <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> got one <Speech_Male> last <Speech_Male> signature <Speech_Male> performance <Speech_Male> in him and I am <Speech_Male> concerned <Speech_Male> about José Ramírez <Speech_Male> getting back down to <Speech_Male> one 40 <Speech_Male> to make the <Speech_Male> wait for <Speech_Male> this fight. So <Speech_Male> I'm going underdog <Speech_Male> here. Pedraza <Speech_Male> by decision <Speech_Male> over Ramirez, <Speech_Male> that's my picks, <Speech_Music_Male> brought to you <Speech_Male> by FanDuel. <Speech_Male> That's it for this <Speech_Male> week's episode. My <Speech_Male> thanks to Sergio Moro, <Speech_Male> Eddie Hearn <Speech_Male> and Joe markovsky <Speech_Male> who joined the show, <Speech_Male> as always, subscribe, <Speech_Male> rate, review <Speech_Male> this podcast on Apple <Speech_Male> podcasts, <Speech_Male> Spotify, wherever <Speech_Music_Male> you

"And from the listeners of KQED, San Francisco. Okay. QB I North Highland Sacramento. It's 4 36. This is all things considered from NPR news. I'm also change in Los Angeles and I'm Ari Shapiro in Washington. There is an unusual amount of optimism in Washington about bipartisan work on policing legislation. President Biden is urging lawmakers to pass a bill named for George Floyd by the first anniversary of Floyd's murder on May 25th. That's less than three weeks away. NPR political reporter Juana Summers is here with an update on where these talks stand. Hey, Juana! Either. Three guilty verdict in the murder of George Floyd has injected new momentum into these efforts, especially around the bill named after him. Tell us First of all, what the bill would do. So the bill would bar the use of choke holds and banned most no knock warrants. It would also create a national database to track police misconduct. It contains several provisions aimed at making it easier to hold officers accountable for misconduct in civil and criminal court. Including changing qualified immunity, the legal doctrine that shields officers from lawsuits by lowering the bar to sue officers for alleged civil rights violations Now, right now, there are bipartisan negotiations with lawmakers, including Congresswoman Karen Bass of California. Was the lead sponsor of that bill in the House, and Senator Tim Scott of South Carolina, who's leading Republican efforts. He had previously introduced his own bill this week, he told CBS there had been progress, working out many of the differences. We have literally been able to bring these two bills very close together. And if you remember the goal isn't for Republicans or Democrats to win before our communities to feel safer and our officers to feel respected if we get accomplished those two major goals The rest will be history. If that's a big if so, wanna one of the main sticking points right now. One of the biggest is qualified immunity. Critics say it allows officers to use excessive force without accountability and that it prevents victims from getting justice Supporters, though, say it allows law enforcement officers to make split second decisions without having a way whether they could be held civilly responsible for the results. Tim Scott has proposed a compromise that civil suits could be brought against entire police departments instead of individuals, he says that would help improve police culture and that he's found some democratic support. But that also risked losing progressives like Missouri Congresswoman Cori Bush, who has already said she would not support a bill that included a compromise on that issue. One other related sticking point has been over whether to change the federal code to make criminal prosecution of individual officers easier. What else you hearing from some of the progressives who have been at the forefront of this debate over the past year? Earlier today, I talked with Maurice Mitchell of the Movement for Black Lives. Now the movement does not support the Floyd Bill Mitchell told me and I'm quoting here that nobody should be running any victory laps if it passes. If we want to be a different society that we need to make transformative changes. We can't just nibble around the edges. I think the Justice and policing act Provides. Some marginal, modest reforms that will not ultimately shift the paradigm. We need to shift the paradigm. Mitchell is also the national director of the Working Families Party. And he says that the movement wants to see political leaders and acted different piece of legislation. The Breathe act, which would completely overhaul the nation's criminal justice system and shift funding towards communities, and that kind of mindset is something we hear from some progressives on Capitol Hill, including Congresswoman Alexandria, a Casio Cortez of New York. And probably speaking, I do think that all of this highlights the fundamental difference and how most Democrats and Republicans think about issues at the intersection of race and policing. Any moves to make the kind of sweeping abroad changes that Aaron the breathe back that Mitchell and some progressive support would almost certainly repels some Republicans and perhaps even some Democrats, and that would make it really difficult to get a bill passed now. NPR's Juana Summers. Thanks a lot. You're welcome. During the pandemic. A new divide has emerged between those who have to show up to work and those who can log in to zoom now, companies are looking ahead to life after the pandemic. And as NPR's Camilla Domina ski reports, This split may be here to stay before the pandemic. Nearly all American workers commuted by luxury car or gelati by bicycle or bus to a factory or an office or a studio. The vast majority of us had to physically show up for work. Then came the pandemic. So in 24 hours, we went from Listen, 1000 employees working remotely to around 80,000 Kiersten Robinson is the chief people officer at Ford Motor Company, and it turns out a lot of the work of making cars like designing engineering and marketing can be done from home. So how quickly we were able to pivot And adjust to remote work really surprised me. I would never have anticipated that, Of course, one place where it's impossible to make that pivot is a factory floor. Cars have got to be built. You got to do that in person. Marcie Pedraza is an electrician's at a Ford plant in Chicago, and last month when Ford announced it would make remote work of permanent option. She had one reaction. I remember reading about that. Hi. I thought Oh, must be nice for them. The driver says that actually, some of her work could be done remotely. She handles a lot of paperwork. And as a single parent, she'd love that flexibility. She's always juggling childcare. But her boss said hourly workers weren't eligible. So we don't have those same I guess. Wait. Hold on. The same, uh, luxuries at the salary. Do not everyone loves working from home. But having the option really is a luxury and it can be life transforming Henry Ford famously transformed factories with his moving assembly line and the rise of the automobile reshaped American cities and our commutes. Now Ford and rival GM are leaning into this new remote work revolution. But unlike say, tech companies, they have a huge pool of workers who have to show up in person. Robinson for its head of HR. Says the company is trying to think of what they can offer. So.
