I know I said we'd be releasing these on a biweekly basis, but I just couldn't resist getting my boxing mentor Luis Monda onto the show before the big fights this weekend. For those who don't know, Floyd Mayweather, the greatest boxer in the sport, is taking on Saul "Canelo" Alvarez this Saturday, possibly the greatest prospect in the sport. And in the co-main two of boxing's hardest pound-for-pound hitters face off, with undefeated Danny Garcia taking on should-be-undefeated Lucas Matthysse.
Luis shares with us his analysis of the matchups, but first we get into his general theories on boxing and combat sports training. Luis tells about how a fighter's personality determines his style, the basic fundamentals of boxing, and how he cultivates better people, not just better fighters.
I'm really proud of this interview, and I hope you'll give it a listen. Let me know what you think. Of course you can comment here, or hit me up on Twitter @ConnorRuebusch. And you can also send us some hatemail at firstname.lastname@example.org. I look forward to reading it.
