Curry was damn good in his prime. He wasn’t the same after the Hunningun fight. But that’s the way it goes in boxing sometimes.

It always takes me a few days to catch the show, but I gotta say this was an enjoyable one. It was great to hear Donald Curry. He was a great fighter. I miss those good old days. The McCory fight was a great win and impressive win for Curry. I also agree with him on the Magic Man, Marlin Starling. He was a tricky fighter… Joeseph it would be real cool to hear how he’s doing as well..

LOL…you’re the man, Hidalgo!!

JK and I are all about respecting the sport and its fighters. I try to show that in my writing as well, which I plan on doing more of on ESB.

I just published a rare editorial on this site about the ongoing Floyd/Manny saga…even my editorials don’t really seem like editorials compared to most of my colleagues these days and really don’t reflect my personal views on the matter.

Concerning Radio Raheem, you hit the nail right on the head. The man is all about himself and nothing else. He’s a glorified fan who knows very little about boxing and the way the sport is run. He has no interest in learning more about the sport…his lack of humility prohibits an ability to learn more from anyone in the sport.

So-called reporters like him really get under my skin…he has so much access to knowledgeable fighters and trainers, yet shows no desire to really learn more and improve his understanding of the sport. He is a horrible representation of the media and the real fans of boxing.

Now that I”ve buttered your buns thoroughly Joseph, continue on. *Big fuggin’ guffaw*

Joe, I watched another Radio Raheemm interview yesterday. He was interviewing Freddie Roach after Pac got KOd by Marquez. Raheem’s style is the antipathy of yours. He makes his interviews too personal. He’s antagonistic. He’s too competitive. For example: You know how all the reporters and journalists are crowding around the boxers after a fight like that. Time is limited and they all want to interview him. Well, Raheem was glaring at one guy who was trying to get a word in edgewise. I mean, he literally stared him down because he was interrupting Raheem. But that’s the way it goes in the post-fight fiasco isn’t it? Everyone clamoring to do their job and get that interview?

Anyways, Raheem right off the bat asked Roach some very pointed questions and even though Roach thoughtfully listened before responding and then responded with humility, I just feel that Raheem is never on the right track in these interviews. He talks more like he’s interviewing politicians than he is boxers and trainers. For some reason Raheem thinks he needs to needle the people he’s interviewing. Seems to me one day he’s going to shoot his own foot off.

If you were having verbal conflicts on your show all the time, I wouldn’t listen to it. I can watch O’Reilly or some other tripe if I want to endure that. Your style is inviting and engaging and easy to listen to and appreciate. I want the people you have on your show to open up and share and enlighten and educate. Pissing them off by challenging them or putting them on the spot serves no purpose in the long run.

So, like brother Bustajay said, keep doing what your doing. Works for me, and I know damn well it works for you.

BUSTAJAY: “Joseph keep the format as is……never go to the slums as some suggest because you are the man……Learn to love it because it is the best thing going today……WOOOOOOOOOAH”

Thank you for the feedback, Bustajay…I really appreciate the idea that you really understand what we’re trying to do here on “The Pugilist KOrner”!!

Fighters, trainers, promoters, and managers really don’t have very many outlets to publicize their respective causes in boxing, so it’s imperative that we give them the full 20 minutes they feel they deserve to promote their own careers and events.

Like I always say on the program: the fighters take enough punishment in the gym and in the ring…they don’t deserve to take any on my show!!

Thanks for listening, Bustajay!!

Hidalgo: “And Joe, I gotta agree with Ronnie Shields–on your Sunday show he said Andy Lee didn’t have a chance in hell in the ring with GGG. Seems to me Abel would feel the same way and I’m surprised he’d even consider the match.”

In my opinion and with all due respect to my man Ronnie, he should ask his fighter Edwin Rodriguez about Andy’s chances against Triple G.

Edwin has been in the gym with Andy and realizes how tough he actually is. Andy Lee is one hard left hand away from being a world champion. But he needs to go back to Detroit or Florida and start training with Sugar Hill again if he ever has any chance of winning a championship fight.

Andy is not learning anything and will never get any further in his career while training with Adam Booth. But with Andy’s height, range, boxing ability, and power, he always has a chance to win the world title…he just needs the opportunity.

I knew Seattle was going to kill it this year. Pete Carroll is a great coach. He doesn’t really care what anyone thinks. The critics can all go suck camel butts according to him.

He likes a certain type of player. Somebody who really enjoys playing, doesn’t have a big fat ego, gets along well with all his team mates, has a good time, never gets discouraged, and expects to win.

If they were football players he would like Danny Garcia, Sergei Kovalev, Carl Frampton, and maybe Bryant Jennings. Of course none of them ever lost yet — but I don’t think it will be any different if they do.

I talked about this on last week’s super bowl preview…defense wins rings.

Oh well…I’m sure people are a bit wiser after this year’s boring bowl game.

But tune in tomorrow evening if you can…it’s a lot of fun. The show is a bit different from the other shows that we do.

same number…718-506-1506

“Give it a listen if you want to hear us go over the Super Bowl and Peyton Manning.”

LMAO! My wife and I both favored the Seahawks but didn’t make any bets. I know loads of people who bet on Denver though.

Joseph Herron

Thanks, Hidalgo!!

Your kind words mean a lot to me!! Thanks for recognizing how hard James works…at not only getting the guests on and off the program, but promoting the show through social media outlets as the show is going on and maintaining levels.

We both work very hard to manage all of the shows we do together.

If you guys are curious, I host a general sports show that covers football, basketball, and baseball called the Sports Krib…it’s our flagship show and it airs every Thursday night at 9PM EST.

Give it a listen if you want to hear us go over the Super Bowl and Peyton Manning.

BTW, Josepah, congrats to J.K. too because he’s working hard in the background. I envisioned him scurrying around the studio–so to speak. Great show!

“it was one of the most difficult shows I’ve ever had to conduct with the diverse guests we featured tonight.”

Joe, I have to commend you on your boxing knowledge and your ability to engage your guests. I also thought it was a difficult show and I was only a listener. But really, very nice job on your part. If it wasn’t for your overall knowledge of the sport, you couldn’t ask many of the questions that you do, or sustain discussion with such a diversified group.

A few years ago whilst in Las Vegas I met Don Curry, really nice guy to talk to.
I too avoided a conversation about Honeyghan, we talked about Colin Jones instead. but a nice guy and a great welter.

Joseph Herron

It was a real honor to chat with Donald Curry on tonight’s program…but I have to say, it was one of the most difficult shows I’ve ever had to conduct with the diverse guests we featured tonight.

It was anything but easy.

But thanks to everyone who took their personal time out to appear on the program!!

LOL Bustajay! I almost called in. I was going to bring up his fight with Honeyghan. But that may have been one that Donald didn’t want to think too much on. He was a great welterweight but once he moved up in weight he just didn’t do as well. He also suffered too many KOs. He was wise to retire when he did.

Posted February 5, 2014 12:36 am

Yeah that might not bring on a smile Hidalgo….LOL
IT WAS A TRIP TO TALK TO HIM….THE REAL CURRY
The advancement up in weight was a chance and as with any chance it is always 50/50

Ask him his insight on GGG defense when on back foot PLEASE

Posted February 5, 2014 12:04 am

GGG needs to step up and Wolfe with Kirland should be ready to step up or shut up
Wolfe can’t protect James…..put him out on front street and the size is the SIZE
