Showed some ring rust on this episode… This episode of Pay Me No Mind was put together with the arrival of Kendrick Lamar’s latest album, DAMN., in mind. Unfortunately, my DAMN. guest had to postpone.
No worries family! After some quick thoughts on Tony Romo’s upcoming move to CBS’ broadcast booth, and a brief review of the season finale of VH1’s The Breaks the guests come.
Boxing/FightHype writer Caryn Tate (@carynatate) joined the show, for the first time, at 32:45 for the first time to talk Ward-Kovalev 2, and the need for women’s boxing to quickly move to full 3-minute rounds.
Mayweather Promotions super lightweight prospect Richardson Hitchins (@ 46:30) discussed his experience as a member of the 2016 Olympic Haitian boxing team. He also talked about his gratitude for his first two fights happening at Barclays Center in his hometown Brooklyn, New York. Hitchins is back in the ring on the undercard of Porter-Berto on April 22nd.
Ringside Reporter host Eric Lorta (@Ringside73) called in (@ 1:04:07) to help sort through the fallout of the Adrien Broner-Gervonta Davis rift which briefly looked like another full-blown Mayweather Promotions-About Billions rift. Lorta weighs in on whether AB’s social media activity is good or bad for business – the live gate. We get off the drama, and get in some thoughts on Shawn Porter versus Andre Berto, but hey… it’s only so much to be said about that fight.
Accokeek, MD super welterweight prospect Justin “Slick” Hurd (@slick_justinhurd on IG) made his first visit to PMNM (@ 1:24:55) to speak on his fight tomorrow night on ShoBox‘s MGM National Harbor undercard. Slick also shares some interesting sacrifices the Hurd family made to allow him and his older brother, IBF world super welterweight champion Jarrett “Swift” Hurd, to chase big time boxing dreams.
Lightweight Jamel “Semper Fi” Herring (@JamelHerring) trains alongside several About Billions fighters daily. Check him out at the 1:38:08-mark to see what the word on AB and Tank is at the gym! Herring also speaks on Jamontay Clark’s recent TKO win on PBC Boxing, the rapid rise of Vasyl Lomachenko, and hints at the timing for his next bout.
