Boxing Podcast With Bob Yalen

My guest on this podcast is Connecticut Boxing Hall of Famer, six-time sports Emmy award-winner and new President of MTK Global Management, Bob Yalen.  We spoke about the future of MTK's top fighters Tyson Fury, Carl Frampton and Billy Joe Saunders.  We also spoke about MTK's broadcast deals with ESPN and IFL TV. 

We then got into Bob's rich experience in the sport as a researcher for Flash Gordon, The Ring Record Book and Fight Fax.  We also talked about his time as head of boxing programming at ABC and ESPN networks and as the Chairman of the WBC Ratings Committee.  We closed with a discussion of the state of televised boxing today.

It was a really informative conversation.  Enjoy!
