It’s reading and review day here in North Dakotaland and I plan to spend as much of it as possible reading and reviewing. In a perfect world, I might read and review all the way through the weekend.
In reality, I know myself well enough to realize that I probably can’t read and review all weekend. Fortunately, there is a remarkable weekend of boxing on tap. First, there is Anthony Joshua versus Kubrat Pulev for heavy weight championship of the world. Then in the evening, there is a full card of boxing from Bob Arum’s Top Rank stables including Shakur Stevenson, the first round knock out machine Edgar Berlanga, “The Dominican Kid” Elvis Rodriguez, and the former Cuban Olympia Robeisy Ramirez. It should be an entertaining enough day of boxing to make me forget that Ohio State won’t be playing Michigan this year for the first time in a century.
