The December 3 hangout will preview the weekend boxing cards and will feature Yahoo sportswriter Kevin Iole as a special guest. “I have enjoyed participating in various forms of the social media and now these boxing hangouts give me a chance to provide programming for and interact with boxing fans around the globe,” Bernstein said. He added, “I can share my conversations with top boxing guests with a wide audience, offer my comments on boxing events and news stories and get reactions from boxing fans. This is an exciting project.”
Social media expert and combat sports blogger Dan Parks is the producer of the hangouts and Bernstein said, “Dan’s expertise and hard work have opened the doors to this emerging platform in social media for me and he is a central figure in bringing boxing fans this content. This is the beginning of a fun journey.”
