This week's show is all about Punishment Season! This podcast was recorded a week after the historical Anthony Joshua versus Wladimir Klitschko fight at Wembley Stadium, and a few days before another Cinco de Mayo weekend with boxing as Saul "Canelo" Alvarez faces Julio Cesar Chavez Jr at Las Vegas' T-Mobile Arena.
PMNM gets you up to speed in the introduction with several entertainment updates as we near the release date of Alien: Covenant, SHOWTIME's Billions winds down S2, and maybe you get introduced to one the best series in the game - Amazon Original's Bosch (Season 3).
Sports-wise, let's talk about those ESPN layoffs, Beast Mode's return to NFL as a member of his hometown Raiders, and the NBA Playoffs.
With the monologue out of the way this week's first guest, Chris Young, an avid NFL fan makes his first visit to PMNM (starting @ 52:01) to break down the 2017 NFL Draft.
In slot number two (@1:09:49) out of Chicago is Premier Boxing Champions ring announcer and play-by-play commentator Ray Flores (@SBRFlores) with his reactions to Shawn Porter's stoppage win over Andre Berto. Flores also looks forward to Kell Brook's May 27 (SHOWTIME Boxing) IBF welterweight title defense against the USA's Errol Spence Jr, and then ranks his current best divisions in boxing.
The final guest is boxing's Punisher! The LBC's unbeaten Malcolm McAllister (9-0, 8 KOs) joined the show (@ 1:22:11) to describe his camp's reaction towards waiting to hear his first decision announced following a fight. McAllister (@malcolm_mac12) visited the canvas for the first time in the final round of his February 28th bout with Alejandro Torres. Click play and learn which former heavyweight world champion's brother got him prepared for being in that kind of trouble in a fight - and how to survive. Plus, The Punisher reveals which division he'll probably pop up in once he addresses a couple of nagging injuries. McAllister also shares his thoughts on Alvarez-Chavez.
That's right, it's early May and we are talking fantasy football! GoingFor2.com's lead fantasy football writer, Mike Kelley, comes on tonight to talk about all the NFL rookies.
He will give us his Top 10 rookies from this year's class as well as some guys you may have never even thought of.
We also talk a little bit of early redraft and what players he sees as being over drafted or under-drafted in this year's fantasy drafts.
Finally, we do a "live" fantasy mock draft using our mock draft tool found at GoingFor2.com/mockdraft powered by FantasyPros. We do a 10-team PPR league with the fourth overall pick.

A quick turnaround for this episode of Pay Me No Mind. More was planned this week until the decision was made that PMNM is headed to BKLN Saturday for #BertoPorter!
There's a feud growing in Indianapolis boxing circles, so I thought I'd get the talented light heavyweights together, in a way, to speak on it.
Indiana light heavyweight state champion Curtis "The Incredible" Hill, Jr. (10-0, 5 KOs) called in to the show (starting @ 49:10) to recap his stunning RD1 destruction of Cory Dulaney on the undercard of About Billions Promotions' Broner-Granados card February 18 at Xavier Univ's Cintas Center. Hill, joined by his trainer Cedric Johnson (CBA Promotions), also hinted at what's next for him inside the ring, and then addressed a recent blog article that proposed a Hoosier showdown with Indy's other "best" light heavyweight - Anthony Sims, Jr (14-0, 13 KOs).
Well, Hill and Sims being mentioned as Indy's "best" got Malcolm "KO King" Jones (7-0, 6 KOs) charged up on social media over the past weekend. Jones returned to PMNM (starting @ 1:12:55) to give out some serious reminders, recap his April 8th RD2 KO, share details on sparring with top 10 light heavyweight Artur Beterbiev, and break down the upcoming Ward-Kovalev rematch.
Beef aside, the two unbeaten fighters were invited on the podcast to shine some light on them in hopes that some TV opportunities arise for both sluggers in the near future. According to BoxRec Hill and Jones are the No. 36- and No. 51-ranked American light heavyweights, respectively.
Andre Berto-Shawn Porter talk... Eric Duran of 60 Minutes Boxing returned (@ 1:28:01) to quickly breakdown the Berto-Porter eliminator, as well as Jermell Charlo's title defense against Charles Hatley.
This episode's intro dealt with Aaron Hernandez's suicide, Serena Williams winning Slams while pregnant, reviews of Kendrick Lamar's DAMN., the NBA 'offs surprises, and Eric Fetterman (@broknowsmovies) checked in (@ 36:48) to share some thoughts on The Fate of The Furious...

No worries family! After some quick thoughts on Tony Romo's upcoming move to CBS' broadcast booth, and a brief review of the season finale of VH1's The Breaks the guests come.
Boxing/FightHype writer Caryn Tate (@carynatate) joined the show, for the first time, at 32:45 for the first time to talk Ward-Kovalev 2, and the need for women's boxing to quickly move to full 3-minute rounds.
Mayweather Promotions super lightweight prospect Richardson Hitchins (@ 46:30) discussed his experience as a member of the 2016 Olympic Haitian boxing team. He also talked about his gratitude for his first two fights happening at Barclays Center in his hometown Brooklyn, New York. Hitchins is back in the ring on the undercard of Porter-Berto on April 22nd.
Ringside Reporter host Eric Lorta (@Ringside73) called in (@ 1:04:07) to help sort through the fallout of the Adrien Broner-Gervonta Davis rift which briefly looked like another full-blown Mayweather Promotions-About Billions rift. Lorta weighs in on whether AB's social media activity is good or bad for business - the live gate. We get off the drama, and get in some thoughts on Shawn Porter versus Andre Berto, but hey... it's only so much to be said about that fight.
Accokeek, MD super welterweight prospect Justin "Slick" Hurd (@slick_justinhurd on IG) made his first visit to PMNM (@ 1:24:55) to speak on his fight tomorrow night on ShoBox's MGM National Harbor undercard. Slick also shares some interesting sacrifices the Hurd family made to allow him and his older brother, IBF world super welterweight champion Jarrett "Swift" Hurd, to chase big time boxing dreams.
Lightweight Jamel "Semper Fi" Herring (@JamelHerring) trains alongside several About Billions fighters daily. Check him out at the 1:38:08-mark to see what the word on AB and Tank is at the gym! Herring also speaks on Jamontay Clark's recent TKO win on PBC Boxing, the rapid rise of Vasyl Lomachenko, and hints at the timing for his next bout.
