Now that the Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor event has a full card, the attention now turns to analyzing the quality of the card, and there is plenty to talk about. However, that hasn’t happened as the latest chapter in the McGregor vs. Paulie Malignaggi saga saw the release of a couple of short videos that seem to put Malignaggi, and his claims that he was never knocked down by McGregor, in doubt.
But before we dive into the circus the August 26 fight, quite possibly the biggest junior welterweight fight in boxing history is set to take place this Saturday with Terence Crawford vs. Julius Indongo with all four world titles on the line, a first in the division’s history. We will provide a deep preview at the fight, as well as looking at the rest of the card, which is a surprisingly deep card.
Also on tap on this week’s newsletter is the 35th anniversary of former featherweight world champion Salvador Sanchez’s untimely death due to a massive car accident. Sanchez was widely regarded as one of the greatest boxers of the early 1980s, with some pundits and historians believing Sanchez could have been the greatest featherweight boxer of all time.
