It’s a privilege to welcome elite level trainer Virgil Hunter back to the Pugilist KOrner.

The highly touted boxer/puncher will talk about sparring with a virtual who’s who of boxing, Canelo Alvarez, Devon Alexander, Ruslan Provodnikov, Paulie Malignaggi, and Sugar Shane Mosley, and how it’s helped his progression as a prizefighter.

It’s always an honor to feature former WBA Junior Middleweight Champion Austin “No Doubt” Trout (26-1, 14 KOs) to the Pugilist KOrner. The slick southpaw will discuss his upcoming title opportunity on December 7th, against interim champ Erislandy Lara. Mr. Trout will also talk about the bad blood between him and the Cuban exile.
