When the fight ends, the boxing fan is just getting started.
That’s when the debate between friends begin, when the blog wars escalate and the news forums go crazy.
Two weeks ago, ESPN Deportes debuted A Los Golpes (Rolling with the Punches), a weekly primetime boxing news and analysis show that serves as a post-fight arena filled with expert opinion, debate, analysis and boxing tips. Now airing every Monday (7:30 p.m. ET), the show’s concept was developed to offer fans a broader analysis and review of the main bouts that happened over the weekend.
Produced from Los Angeles, the show is also highlighted by the participation of the Mexican boxing champion and International Boxing Hall Of Fame inductee Julio Cesar Chavez. For the first time, he sits on a set as a regular analyst to share his boxing knowledge.
He is joined by hosts David Faitelson and Bernardo Osuna, two of the most respected boxing experts in the industry. The combination of these three personalities promises a unique perspective of what is happening in the world of boxing, a sport that is ingrained in the Hispanic culture.
In a career that spanned over 25 years, Chávez won six world titles. For several years, he was considered the best pound-for-pound boxer in the world. He is the father of current WBC Middleweight Champion Julio César Chávez, Jr.
A Los Golpes includes fun and interactive segments such as:
The Punch of the Week – In which the most powerful news of the week will be a knockdown by the contenders.
Face to Face – High profile boxing personalities interviewed in a casual atmosphere.
The Champion’s Corner – Julio César Chávez Sr. gives tips on how to win a fight or knock down an opponent.
