The guys from Championship Rounds are back from Birmingham, Alabama and it wouldn’t be a road trip without drama. So Craig Carlos-Valentino (A.K.A CCV) had to do all the driving because Sean Thompson (A.K.A too many to name) treats him like Morgan Freeman in Driving Miss Daisy. But they both did agree that PBC and Fox put together an action-filled card that had everything a boxing fan could want.
The main event did have the champion with some ring rust, but he still delivered a huge knockout and gave the hometown fans something to cheer about. What’s next for the champ? That’s still in the air, but Craig and Sean give their takes on who should be next for the WBC Heavyweight Champion.
Sean also talked about the big fight this weekend between Keith Thurman and Danny Garcia. How this fight is huge for the career of both fighters. Sean made the point that it seems like Garcia always shows up for the big fights. But this maybe too much for him. Craig says that Keith Thurman has told us in interviews that he wants to be the next Floyd Mayweather at 147 pounds. Well this is his time to shine.
And looking ahead to a couple fights down the road between Canelo Alvarez & Julio Ceasar Chavez Jr, GGG & Brandon Jacobs… who has the bigger chance at an upset? And of course Craig and Sean don’t agree. In the quick jabs segment it’s looking more like Pacquaio vs. Khan, GGG was drop weight to fight Floyd, and De La Hoya calls out McGregor vs. Mayweather.
