Derrick James, Errol Spence Jr. & Jermell Charlo's Trainer, Joins the Show + Bringing Back Big Fights, WBC "Orders" Alvarez-Yildirim & Loma-Lopez on ESPN

The Pug and Copp Boxing Show: A show about Boxing

In today's loaded episode, Mike and Lance examine a set of can't-miss bouts, the first of their kind since February, in Whyte-Povetkin, and Alvarez-Smith on ESPN (1:15). Will Whyte get Fury-Wilder winner by winning? Does Alvarez next get Artur Beterbiev, and who’s supposed to fight September 25th in Russia? It appears Canelo Alvarez may have his next fight set, though not of his own volition; the WBC has “ordered” the 30-year-old world champion to fight Avni Yildirim for the vacant 168 belt formerly belonging to David Benavidez (13:45). Can the WBC order Canelo to do anything now that he has Franchise status, and when will canelo fight given the behind-the-scenes battle with DAZN? The guys then welcome 2017 Trainer of the Year and mentor to Errol Spence Jr. and Jermell Charlo, Derrick James, to the program (18:45). James details Spence Jr.'s recovery and training since a late 2019 car wreck left him with various injuries. What conversations were had between James and Spence Jr. when deciding to fight Danny Garcia (21:15)? Is the best and, maybe, only way to gauge Spence Jr.'s progress since his accident is by him fighting in the ring (24:45)? What does being the main event on September 26th mean to Jermell Charlo, and what are the keys to his match up against Jeison Rosario (27:15)? Mike and Lance put a bow on today's show by discussing Loma-Lopez on ESPN (34:15).
