The Sports Bash ON DEMAND gives you the chance to go back and hear what you missed. Its the Sports Bash with Mike Gill and Todd Ranck.
Here is today’s show: Monday June 11th, 2012.
Pac vs. Bradley
Mike Gill and Todd Ranck open up today's show with the debacle that was the Manny Pacquiao vs. Timothy Bradley fight Saturday night. Todd likens it to the fiascoes of the WWE, calling promoter Bob Arum "a better actor than Vince McMahon." The main question is: how can 3 judges make one decision and the rest of the boxing world make the complete opposite decision if we all watched the same fight? Either way, there will be an "investigation" and come November 10th, we will see Pacquiao vs. Bradley II.
More on the fight...
Mike and Todd continue to talk about the awful decision by three judges over the weekend. Todd wonders why there are arent any former boxers or commentators as judges, rather we see (or don't see) three people we've never heard of judging these fights. Todd also says that Dana White must be one of the happiest men in America after this result.
Teddy Atlas calls in
Legendary trainer turned commentator Teddy Atlas called in and gave his thoughts on Saturday nights fight. He called into Mike and Mike In The Morning and brought some strong and passionate thoughts to the table. With our interview, the same remained. A summary here will not do any justice to the passion coming from Teddy Atlas here. Teddy Atlas has been in boxing for 40+ years and is currently a boxing analyst for ESPN.
