When you interview people on a daily basis such as we do on Fight Network Radio and Ariel Helwani does on Jarry Park and MMARated.com, you’re going to have some gems, you’re going to have some duds and you’re going to have ones that are just insane!
This week, I take a look at some of the stranger guests in Fight Network Radio’s one-year history!
And I’ll throw it out to the Jarry Park nation: What is the strangest combat sports-related interview you have ever heard?
To the surprise of no one (including his family), Steve Forbes did not throw a wrench into the plans of Oscar De La Hoya for a rematch with Floyd Mayweather Jr. later this year as he lost to the Golden Boy Saturday night via unanimous decision.
With “2 pounds” out of the way, De La Hoya now sets his sights on the “147 pound” WBC Welterweight champion, Floyd Mayweather Jr., for a September rematch.
One year ago today, the two were responsible for generating the biggest business in the history of boxing on Pay-Per-View with 2.4 million buys as well as the largest gate in the history of Nevada.
Can these two repeat the kind business that HBO is hoping for in 2008? And, while we’re at it, do people even want to see a rematch?
(By the way, the above photo of Kelly Kelly has nothing to do with any of these issues but she was Knox’s “girlfriend” for a while on ECW so I thought it would be a propos and more interesting than a photo of Mr. Ole Anderson Jr. What a weird pairing that was. Sort of like Lita with Essa Rios way back when.)
I interrupt your day to let you know that I will be a guest during the “Insider” segment on Fight Network Radio today to discuss a little MMA and wrestling.
While my appearance will come at 3:15 p.m. EST, The show airs on Sirius channel 186 or via the Hardcore Sports Radio site from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. EST. I suggest listening to the whole show – it’s quality fight programming.
Fight Network Radio and Live Audio Wrestling producer, John Pollock, tackles a couple of heavy duty topics this week.
First off, he weighs in on another “is pro wrestling responsible for this death” story. The incident in question is the death of a two-year-old boy in East St. Louis, IL. It appears as though the boy’s brother was responsible for the killing after strangling his brother with a part of their curtain. Their mother claims that her son learned this maneuver while watching World Wrestling Entertainment programming.
