This week’s show features special guest, super welterweight contender Julian “J Rock” Williams (22-1-1, 14 KOs) from the City of Brotherly Love. J Rock makes his televised 2017 debut Friday, June 30th in a bout versus once-beaten Joshua Conley (14-1-1, 9 KOs) as part of the Premier Boxing Champions on Bounce telecast headlined by Robert Easter Jr’s mandatory title defense against Denis Shafikov. All the action takes place at Toledo, Ohio’s Huntington Center, and the broadcast starts at 9:00 PM ET/6:00 PT.
Williams is coming off his first professional loss – a fifth round stoppage by former super welterweight champion Jermall Charlo – but he’s put that setback behind him, and he’s ready to get back to work. J Rock discusses the key lesson he learned from the Charlo fight, and shares what he’s been up to during boxing’s hot start to 2017. We also got into some Williams’ interests outside of boxing.
The 2017 NBA Finals are also going on so we discussed Game 3, and on the entertainment side we took a look at the movie that saved this year’s blockbuster season – Wonder Woman. Some great guests returned to the show delve into this week’s topics which also included the Stanley Cup Finals and the upcoming HBO Pay Per View Andre Ward versus Sergey Kovalev.
Cincinnati promoter Brian Hughes, head of Hughes Promotions, made his first appearance on the show to talk about his Friday, July 7th Rumble at the Radisson card. RatR features 12 exciting bouts ranging from heavyweights to welterweights. Hughes runs down his action-packed line-up of boxers, as well as Hughes Promotions’ aim with its series of upcoming shows in Covington, Kentucky, which is just across the bridge from Cincinnati.
