Championship Rounds w/ Craig Carlos-Valentino & Sean Thompson- ' I watched UFC 202 and boxing can learn one thing from the UFC'Craig AKA CCV and Sean AKA Peanut Gallery and 20 other AKA’s we are not listing here are back. Apparently they have not been fired yet and were let in the building again to do another edition of “Championship Rounds.” On this week’s show the guys discuss how impressed they were with Errol Spence Jr’s dominating performance and knockout of Leonard Bundu last week. CCV talks about how he was impressed more than what he saw in the ring from Spence Jr. “It was the complete package. From Al Haymon, to PBC, to putting Spence’s fight on right after the USA Olympic basketball team’s gold medal win was perfect.” However did Spence Jr’s performance have the guys vault him to the top of the 147 pound division as one of the best right now? The guys like with most things do not really see eye to eye on this question. For one of the guys on the show it’s a no brainer that he should be in the top 3. The argument from the other co-host that takes the opposite stance is. “You don’t rank on potential. You need to have quality wins. He’s extremely talented, but right now his best win is against Chris Algeri. That does not get you ranked near the top of the division right now.” When the guys aren’t arguing they are in agreement that USA Olympic boxing needs some changes to make it more popular and more successful. Props were definitely given to Shakur Stevenson, Nico Hernandez, and Clareesa Shields for their performances in Rio. However both guys are reminded how long it has actually been since the USA Olympic team has won a gold medal in men’s Olympic boxing (2004) and multiple gold medals (1988). Both CCV and PG think that Olympic boxing needs some serious changes, but offer some real simple solutions that if the USA boxing folks are listening they might want to implement to help grow the sport to what it once was in the 1980’s. Finally in “Low Blows” this week has Craig calling out the city of Phoenix for a recent event that happened this week. Sean’s low blow comes after admitting the UFC does do one thing better than boxing, but says where the one place is that he doesn’t want to see UFC and boxing fighters together.
Championship Boxing w/ Craig Carlos-Valentino & Sean Thompson- Pacquiao is about making money and not making fightsIt’s been almost a month, but Championship Rounds is back! Not a moment too soon as Craig and the Peanut Gallery have lots to catch up on. Lots of big fights to catch up on for the guys. Who’s had the best month and win since the last edition of Championship Rounds? Crawford? Frampton? Ward? The Peanut Gallery leans toward the one guy who pulled not only won, but made the biggest statement in his win. CCV says his pick is based solely on the money. Manny Pacquiao has an opponent for his comeback fight in November and PG and CCV tell you why they aren’t that happy with the opponent selection. For the PG the decision for Pac Man’s next opponent is just another case to him of Politics as usual. While CCV takes it a step further, “Here’s another example of us not getting the fights that we want to see.” Quick jabs this week discusses a fighter saying goodbye, another fighter missing out on a big money opportunity, and another who is very lucky to have to still have any opportunities inside the ring. The guys cap off this week’s Championship Rounds the same way they always do with a few Low Blows. The Peanut Gallery acknowledges he originally wanted to talk about Antonio Margarito and Roy Jones fighting way past their primes again recently, but they were trumped by a decision made by the WBC earlier this week. To say he was a little angry would be an understatement. CCV takes UFC fighter Connor McGregor on and hits him with a few low blows this week.

Championship Rounds w/ Craig Carlos-Valentino & Sean Thompson-'We survived Alabama'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.
Championship Rounds w/ Craig Carlos-Valentino & Sean Thompson- 'I'm leaving Alabama with the Belt'PG & CCV are back with another edition of “Championship Rounds.” Speaking of being back Manny Pacquiao is back from one of the shortest retirements in history and the guys definitely have something to say about that. Pacquiao retired in April, but now plans on coming back to the ring in November. The Peanut Gallery of course chimes in on the Pacquiao news, “If he hadn’t announced his retirement in April he would have been fighting in November anyway.” Craig says, “That politician money clearly isn’t as big as that fighter money.” The guys now know they are going to be making the drive this weekend to Birmingham to see the heavyweight title fight between undefeated WBC Champion Deontay Wilder and challenger Chris Arreola. So what better way to get ready for it than to talk to Arreola as the guys do this week. Nicknamed “The Nightmare” Arreola is hoping to be just that to Wilder and shock the world Saturday night. “This is my third shot at a heavyweight championship and probably my last shot if I don’t win Saturday night. I’m motivated to come to Birmingham and stop Deontay Wilder.” Did Arreola convince the guys enough during the interview that they will pick him to pull off the upset? The guys give their predictions on the fight and one thing remains certain for PG. “This fight is ending with someone getting put to sleep.” The guys wrap up this week’s Championship Rounds with a few “Low Blows.” CCV talks about how there needs to be more fighters thinking like Keith Thurman while PG discusses another example of where nepotism has failed.
