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...
