Pay Me No Mind: Don’t Blink Returns & Brooklyn Fights’ Xavier Porter

Sorry family, I'm still finding my way with recording and editing this joint!!! 

So, I'm keeping it pretty straightforward. I open up with a couple of NBA thoughts on the Toronto Raptors firing their Coach of the Year coach, and LeBron James being down 0-1 to Brad Stevens and the young Boston Celtics. 

I was in the building - the Mecca k/a Madison Square Garden - for last weekend's Top Rank on ESPN's lightweight world championship showdown Jorge Linares vs Vasiliy Lomachenko card. Xavier Porter of Brooklyn Fights joined the show (starting at 41:28) to help break the card down, as well as to provide some input on young lightweight Devin Haney's dominant performance on Friday's ShoBox: The New Generation. 

This week's featured guest is Chicago bantamweight Joshua "Don't Blink" Greer Jr (starting at 55:26), discussing his explosive KO8 win versus Glenn Dezurn on last Friday's ShoBox quadruple-header. Was he disrespectful to coach Barry Hunter during the fight? After just a couple fights, how is his relationship with trainer John Pullman so effective? Does his performance Friday night merit a berth in the World Boxing Super Series' bantamweight tournament that's taking form?
