Sunday, November 26th, presents a special "What's happened to HBO Boxing" edition of "Gogue's Ringside Report", featuring three decade fight trainer James Gogue and boxing writer and ring announcer Joseph Herron.
To kick off this evening's live program, Gogue and Herron will analyze HBO's latest "night of mismatches" from the theater of Madison Square Garden!

- Kovalev TKO2 over Shabranskyy
- Barrera UD10 over Valera
- Gamboa MD10 over Sosa
- Why didn't Kovalev fight for the vacant WBO 175 title against Barrera?
- Does HBO and Main Events really believe this fight between two non-ticket sellers can get any bigger financially?

The FightSaga Radio team will also discuss next weekend's "farewell" bout for four division world titlist Miguel Angel Cotto!!

- Why did Golden Boy Promotions and HBO invest so much money in this fight of little to no consequence?
- Why did so many fighters balk at the chance to face a legend like Cotto on the HBO platform in his apparent final fight?

Gogue and Herron will also discuss Pacquiao and De la Hoya's recent public declaration of their respective willingness to face Conor McGregor in 2018.

- Is this a good look for the sport of boxing?

All of this and more on the latest edition of FightSaga Radio!!
