Boxing Podcast With James "Buddy" McGirt and Michael Woods

My guests on this podcast are Hall of Famer Buddy McGirt and boxing writer Michael Woods.  I spoke with McGirt about the upcoming Light Heavyweight title fight between his champion Sergey Kovalev and Middleweight Champion Canelo Alvarez.  We also spoke about the ring passing of Patrick Day and what safety measures the sport can take to prevent future deaths.

I spoke to Woods about Woods' upbringing in Massachusetts and what brought him to New York to become a boxing writer.  We also spoke about the state of the boxing press today and how it differs from when Woods started.

Great conversations - enjoy!
