Championship Rounds is back this week with a “Fury” of stories this week. Craig aka CCV and Sean aka the Peanut Gallery address all the stories lately with WBA/WBO heavyweight champion Tyson Fury. The guys try to make sense of Fury’s “retirement,” his “comeback,” another postponement, and his reported positive drug test for cocaine.
With all the Fury news CCV states the obvious.
“We could have done this entire podcast from the headlines to low blows just on Fury this week”
Is Fury done as a fighter? Could Fury’s situation actually turn out to be a good thing for the heavyweight division in the long run? The guys have plenty to say as they answer these questions.
PG and CCV also discuss how a Canelo Alvarez broken bone could actually turn into making the end of 2016 quite memorable for the sport of boxing. The Peanut Gallery certainly believes it will be a great holiday season in boxing.
“Boxing has four million reasons to be thankful for that broken bone in Canelo’s hand. We now get to finish 2016 with some great boxing matchups”
Sean and Craig are also popping bottles this week as they find out they are going to Vegas for the Manny Pacquiao and Jessie Vargas fight. After the bottle popping the guys they talk about the interesting PPV broadcast team that was announced for that fight. Who’s Sean and Craig’s ultimate dream team boxing broadcast lineup? Well as usual the guys disagree on something and this week it’s on one particular broadcaster and his rank in the broadcasting elite.
As is with the case of all editions of Championship Rounds the guys finish up with their “Low Blows.” For Craig this week he focuses on a fighter who is no stranger to being talked about in this segment. Sean on the other hand discusses another scenario where boxing has missed its mark.
