and it makes sense, the Gypsy King was made for Vegas.
It’s wild that it took this long for him to make his first Vegas appearance
(Putting on a show at the face off this week, came in all model posing, and Tom Schwarz had to follow suit)
speaking of suits, who wore it better
Melissa Villasenor on the red carpet this week or Tyson Fury at the press conference??
Anyway Tyson’s been having a lot of fun and good, this is prize fighting, this is show. “Big Drama Show” even sometimes.
Anyway great to see a little entertainment before Tyson picks apart Tom Schwarz.
Who’s Tom Schwarz?
I didn’t really know who he was either.
Here’s your tl;dr on the guy…
That’s all I got for you. Anyway it doesn’t matter cuz Saturday night it’s gonna be a Tyson Fury show on ESPN+
And what if I’m wrong… again? Well then everything in the division will be royally F’ed (more so) and well wouldn’t that be fun.
So here’s how to watch it:
Need to have ESPN+ (fyi I’m still looking for someone who wants to go halfsies with me, I got DAZN)
boom here’s the card
June 15: Las Vegas (ESPN+/undercard ESPN2)
- Tyson Fury vs. Tom Schwarz, 12 rounds, heavyweights
- Sullivan Barrera vs. Jesse Hart, 10 rounds, light heavyweights
- Mikaela Mayer 😍 vs. Lizbeth Crespo, 10 rounds, female junior lightweights
- Andy Vences vs. Albert Bell, 10 rounds, junior lightweights
Sullivan Barrera and Jesse Hart should be a good fight to watch. Mikaela Mayer is always a star. And take a look at Andy Vences, he’s a Top Rank product that they got big things planned for.
Sorry folks it’s a mostly ESPN+ weekend this time and June 15 is loaded. If you wanna binge, there’s this.
June 15: Leeds, England (ESPN+)
- Title fight: Josh Warrington vs. Kid Galahad, 12 rounds, for Warrington’s IBF featherweight title
- Jason Welborn vs. JJ Metcalf, 12 rounds, for vacant Commonwealth junior middleweight title
But hey maybe you’re new to boxing and you want to dip your toe in the water first.
Slow down Garrity, I don’t even have cable! You expect me to buy a subscription to a premium streaming service like ESPN+ when you already suggested I pay for DAZN too?!?
Well if you want to test it out there’s always the free.99 option.
There’s a show tonight on the web that us poors can tune into together. And if you wanna watch, cool
June 14: Ontario, Calif. (ThompsonBoxing.com)
- Angel Ruiz vs. Miguel Zamudio, 8 rounds, welterweights
- Richard Brewart vs. Antonio Duarte, 6 rounds, junior middleweights
- Mario Hernandez vs. Nester Ramos, 6 rounds, bantamweights
- Oscar Torrez vs. Siala Siligila, 4 rounds, heavyweights
That’s it dude, easy as that.
/card pitch over
I mentioned above that Mikaela Mayer is fighting here’s a story that Steve Kim did
tbh hell with Steve Kim though for that twitter fight he would pick with my favorite, the GWOAT, Claressa Shields.
She’s the GWOAT and I’m happy for her. Fighting in her hometown of Flint will be huge.
Don’t forget, Manny Pacquiao is back in a little over a month when he takes on the current “champ” (WBA “super”) Kieth Thurman on July 20th.
I think he beats Thurman but that doesn’t do too much for my hopes that we can start consolidating this division.
Would PacMan really want Bud Crawford smoke? or Spence? (WBO and IBF belts respectively)
Idk if it’s even necessary to put the man through that. But it’s so great to see the legend still putting out good work even in the twilight phase of his career as he is doing now.
