During the first thirty minute segment of the two hour program, The Pugilist KOrner team will discuss Floyd Mayweather Jr‘s trepidation in choosing an opponent for May 3rd. WBA Welterweight Champion Marcos Maidana and former IBF and WBA Junior Welterweight Champion Amir Khan are the leading candidates for the upcoming event, which is set to take place at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada.

James and Joseph will also talk about Tyson Fury and Derek Chisora’s respective victories in London, England, over the weekend, and their plight for a potential fight with universally recognized Heavyweight Champion Wladimir Klitschko.

At the half hour mark of the show, “The Pugilist KOrner’s: Weekend Wrap” is honored to feature elite level trainer Ronnie Shields!! The lifelong boxing mentor will discuss Middleweight Bryan Vera and his mammoth rematch with Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. on March 1st, as well as Junior Middleweight Jermall Charlo’s upcoming March 8th title opportunity against IBF title holder Carlos Molina. Mr. Shields will also discuss the future of the very avoided Erislandy Lara, and why the current WBA title holder has such a hard time getting a suitable opponent.

In the final segment of the evening, we’re proud to feature master strategist James Gogue on “The Pugilist KOrner‘s: Weekend Wrap”. The three decade boxing coach will talk about the entire Mayweather controversy, as well as the role of the “villain” historically in the sport of boxing. Mr. Gogue will examine why a great “bad guy” is so important for the health of the sweet science. The experienced fight trainer will also discuss the landscape of the Heavyweight division and why the big men are a hard sell in this era of boxing.

Tonight’s program will be hosted by radio producer and commentator James E. King III, and boxing writer and ring announcer Joseph Herron.
