We Recap E3 and AwesomeCon
We give our predictions for WWE Money in the Bank 2017
This week's show features special guest, super welterweight contender Julian "J Rock" Williams (22-1-1, 14 KOs) from the City of Brotherly Love. J Rock makes his televised 2017 debut Friday, June 30th in a bout versus once-beaten Joshua Conley (14-1-1, 9 KOs) as part of the Premier Boxing Champions on Bounce telecast headlined by Robert Easter Jr's mandatory title defense against Denis Shafikov. All the action takes place at Toledo, Ohio's Huntington Center, and the broadcast starts at 9:00 PM ET/6:00 PT.
Williams is coming off his first professional loss - a fifth round stoppage by former super welterweight champion Jermall Charlo - but he's put that setback behind him, and he's ready to get back to work. J Rock discusses the key lesson he learned from the Charlo fight, and shares what he's been up to during boxing's hot start to 2017. We also got into some Williams' interests outside of boxing.
The 2017 NBA Finals are also going on so we discussed Game 3, and on the entertainment side we took a look at the movie that saved this year's blockbuster season - Wonder Woman. Some great guests returned to the show delve into this week's topics which also included the Stanley Cup Finals and the upcoming HBO Pay Per View Andre Ward versus Sergey Kovalev.
Cincinnati promoter Brian Hughes, head of Hughes Promotions, made his first appearance on the show to talk about his Friday, July 7th Rumble at the Radisson card. RatR features 12 exciting bouts ranging from heavyweights to welterweights. Hughes runs down his action-packed line-up of boxers, as well as Hughes Promotions' aim with its series of upcoming shows in Covington, Kentucky, which is just across the bridge from Cincinnati.

Far Cry 5 controversy
Overwatch lootbox skins (reddit has worked-out that it would take 27 hours of playing to earn all of the legendary skins for the current anniversary event) Is that fair?

Time's up fight fans - IBF world welterweight champion Kell Brook defends his title against Errol Spence Jr at Bramall Lane in Sheffield, England today on SHOWTIME Championship Boxing (live at 5:15 PM ET/2:15 PT).
Time's up NBA fans - the Cleveland Cavaliers and Golden State Warriors will face each other for the third straight time in The Finals.
I work hard to load these podcasts up family! This week's special guests... plural... I have on-location interviews with former two-time world champion and SHOWTIME Boxing analyst Paulie Malignnagi (@PaulMalignaggi) and current IBF world junior middleweight champion Jarrett "Swift" Hurd (@Swift_JHurd). Malignnagi talks Brook-Spence, gives a prediction on Mayweather-McGregor, and discusses whether he feels slighted never getting a shot to face Floyd "Money May" Mayweather. New, undefeated champ Swift responds to being looked at as the weakest link among the 154-pound champions, he names his top choice for a unification fight, weighs in on Brook-Spence and lays out a possible timeline for his move to a new division.
This week's guests include writer Peter Nieves of Round By Round Boxing, Joe Habeeb of Beating The Odds With Beeb and Ringside Reporter, and boxing promoter "Big" Bern Valenzuela out of California.
Nieves (@pnieves90) covers boxing for RBR Boxing, primarily in the Texas area, and spent some time Errol Spence Jr's camp during his preparations for Brook.
Habeeb (@jhabeeb1) breaks down tons of boxing action at his Beating the Odds With Beeb YouTube channel, as well as each Sunday night live on the Ringside Reporter show. Habeeb takes a second look at the controversial Andre Dirrell-Jose Uzcategui ending last week, and then weighs in Brook-Spence and June's Andre Ward-Sergey Kovalev 2. Beeb has the keys!
"Big" Bern Valenzuela joined the show to talk about some Mexican boxing. Valenzuela recaps the disappointing Alvarez-Chavez megafight, and points out a silver lining for Golden Boy Promotions. Bern also talks about some of his fighters' upcoming bouts (he gets a second crack at Philly's Hank Lundy next week with Daniel Evangelista Jr), and he warns the boxing world of the coming of his prospect "El Azteca."
