Spence and Taylor dominate, Charlie Edwards, and UFC lessons
There were strong performances over the weekend from Errol Spence jr, who shut out Mikey Garcia; Katie Taylor, who added another world title to her flawless professional record; and Luke Campbell, who joins the podcast following his win over Adrian Yung. It was a different kind of fight night on Saturday, though, for Mike and Steve - they watched the UFC in London, and picked up some ideas for what the sport of boxing can learn from their set up.
This coming weekend, Charlie Edwards is back in the ring making the first defence of the WBC flyweight title he won on an emotional night in London just before Christmas. As an amateur teammate of Anthony Joshua, do fighters like Edwards at the lighter end of the scale get the attention they deserve?
