Episode 1638: Big Punchers And Big Upsets, The McGregor Phenomenon And The Culture That Created Him, Woodward Churn

#MomentOfTheMonth: June 2019 — @Andy_destroyer1 shocked the boxing world with a 7th RD TKO of Anthony Joshua to become the first Heavyweight World Champion of Mexican descent on June 1 at @TheGarden in New York. #JoshuaRuiz #TeamRuiz
