KGB Radio: Badou Jack vs James DeGale Preview

Knuckles and Gloves Boxing Radio

Now we can officially say that 2017’s fights have begun. Badou Jack and James DeGale will meet this weekend on Showtime, kicking off what we all hope will be a much-improved year in boxing.

Has Jack sufficiently righted the ship since getting ousted in under one round a few years ago? Will DeGale — the U.K.’s first Olympic gold medalist and world champion — be able to follow up his sleepy 2016 with a much bigger year? It’s not a perfect fight, not precisely 50-50 in odds, but it should hold us over for a while.

Apart from previewing #JackDeGale, this week author and filmmaker Brin-Jonathan Butler and historian Patrick Connor also relived some of their favorite heavyweight knockouts, slugfests and memorable moments from the 1990s.
