CCV & PG went to Birmingham last weekend and still made it back this week to hit you with another “Championship Rounds.”
“We Made It Back from Birmingham….Alive!” a very happy Peanut Gallery starts the show with. The guys recap the good, bad, and ugly of their road trip to Birmingham and Deontay Wilder’s TKO victory over Chris Arreola last Saturday night. A lot of the “Good” the guys have came from Wilder’s performance though some of the “Bad” came from him breaking his right hand during the fight.
As Craig points out, “It sucks for Wilder. He’s perfect person in terms of personality for boxing and the heavyweight division.” The guys think it’s going to unfortunately be quite a while before we see Wilder back in the ring against a top level opponent because of the injuries he suffered.
Manny Pacquiao has a home for his first fight since he came out of “retirement” and the guys agree the it’s happening the right state, but wrong location for the fight.
“The UNLV Running Rebels don’t want to play there,” the PG chimes in on the home of Pacquiao’s next fight. “That place hasn’t been hot since ’88.”
Unlike Pacquiao, Canelo Alvarez actually has the perfect place for his next fight and the guys give him his credit for that. Though the guys still won’t give Canelo credit for his next opponent.
The guys then get you ready for one of the biggest fights of the summer as they preview the Terrence Crawford and Victor Postol championship fight on Saturday night. Both guys expect a good fight and have the same prediction. Though Craig’s outcome has a scent of a conspiracy in the air. “Someone needs to check his bank account on Monday to see if there is any extra money in there!”
And of course no edition of “Championship Rounds” is complete without the guys giving you their low blows. A regular victim of the segment makes another appearance this week and CCV is all over him for that. Meanwhile PG has to address something he couldn’t believe he saw in Birmingham last weekend.
