Day off work so I'm checking out the new Max Kellerman boxing show in ESPN2 "Max on Boxing" named after his super old NYC public access show back when he was a teenager. A bit short at half an hour but it's alright for shoulder programming I guess

Also a couple of pods to add to the OP

State of Combat - Comes in boxing, MMA and pro wrestling varieties all hosted by CBS's Brian Campbell. The boxing edition is co-hosted by journalist/author Rafe Bartholemew in a reunion of the old "The Ropes" podcast which used to be Grantland a few years ago.

https://www.cbssports.com/podcasts/in-this-corner-with-brian-campbell/

Showtime Boxing - Hosted by the former HBO Boxing podcast crew of Eric Raskin and Kieran Mulvaney. If you liked the HBO pod you'll like this too since they haven't lost their touch and seem to have even a bit more latitude than before

https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/showtime-boxing-with-raskin-mulvaney/id1443915777?mt=2

SI Boxing with Chris Mannix - Another podcast continued on from another platform as Mannix returned to Sports Illustrated from Yahoo late last year. Don't care for a lot Mannix's opinions but he is a good host and has the most important guests on week to week

https://art19.com/shows/boxing-mannix

Fistianados with Evan Rutkowski - Rutkowski is a former HBO executive so the primary focus is the boxing business but by far the best regular podcast for that type of thing which admittedly I enjoy way too much. Recently switched platforms so there might not be new episodes for a bit but Evan's twitter is very active in the meantime.

https://twitter.com/fistianadospod?lang=en

BBC 5 Live Boxing with Costello and Bunce - If you're in North America and have ever streamed a show you're likely all too familiar with BoxNation host Steve Bunce desparately trying to keep himself from falling asleep for cards that being at around 3 AM GMT. Seems to be the best podcast on that side of the pond

Joyce/Stiverne is apparently for the WBA eliminator for Manuel Charr? Maybe the biggest joke for a "title eliminator" ever.

At this point I just have to hand it to the WBA for being able to somehow get 3% of the purse of every fight that takes place anywhere in the world.

Also apparently Canelo is thinking of maybe moving up to 175 at some point. A 5'7" light heavyweight? Why not

Canelo via BoxingScene posted:

"We do not rule out the possibility (of fighting at 175 pounds)," said Canelo to ESPN Deportes. "At this moment we have other things in mind, but the possibility exists. It's a huge challenge, but it's the type of things that I like, I know (Sergey) Kovalev since I was 20 years old, and why not, we could make a fight between us and I like those challenges, there is the possibility of making that fight."

I'm disappointed we're not getting the immediate rematch but I am happy to know my OP should remain relevant for a while. Fury joining ESPN locks up the Battle of the Brands with each of the three major networks having one piece of the heavyweight championship.

I agree with Arum that both fighters will benefit from a showcase fight before they have a rematch. Fury and Wilder probably gained some fans in their PPV fight but probably not a lot of people saw it numbers wise. If a larger audience sees a Fury tune-up on ESPN that will translate into a lot of people learning about Wilder. Demand for them to fight each other again will build pretty quickly and eventually there will be too much money here for the networks and promoters to ignore.

My hot take: this is actually good for the sport. It's good that Fury and Wilder are on competing networks with competing promotional companies. That means Fury and Wilder together will reach a larger audience than they would if they both fought on just one platform. ESPN reaches a sports audience that Showtime doesn't, and Fury's a guy who will draw fan interest to the sport. Having the heavyweight championship split up across all three networks also means this era of heavyweight boxing is reaching a larger audience than ever. If fans tune in for heavyweight boxing and see exciting fights no matter what network they're watching, that's going to do wonders for interest in boxing's smaller weight classes.

To end with some good news it's been rumored that GGG is signing up with DAZN.

I'm inclined to agree with this too. Linear TV isn't what is once was but it's hard to underestimate the amount to which this can be built up with ESPN showing Fury and Wilder (fight and press conference) highlights every day for 2 weeks leading into the fight.

Just by nature of his style and not having real big power Porter will never be not in a close fight unless he's fighting against someone who's washed or a scrub but he'll probably never get clearly beat until he's way over the hill either.

ESPN's £80m deal with Fury doesn't look so good

Yes, if Deontay Wilder were to sign with DAZN then all of the recongnized heavyweight titles would belong to fighters aligned with that platform. On the plus side for Fury it seems as if Dillian Whyte may be nearing a deal with Top Rank/ESPN so at least he has an opponent to build into.

DAZN is making some pricing changes.

Current users are grandfathered into $9.99/month for another year.

Kind of disappointing, especially since the free trial month is apparently going away but not unexpected with the GGG signing and throwing around huge sums to anyone with a boxrec. For those already in the annual plan is a good option to have. Hopefully they can lock down some major sports rights in the US soon.
