The Barbershop – August 14, 2014

By Allan Scotto

Happy Thursday fans!


Welcome to this week’s edition of “The Barbershop,” a column designed to give you a forum to speak your mind about our question(s) of the week or any boxing-related issue you would like to comment on. We welcome and appreciate your participation, so take a minute; scroll down and leave your comment below.

Now on to today’s question(s):


Well, last Saturday, Danny Garcia made short work out of Rod Salka, a game but totally mismatched opponent, knocking him out in the 2nd round. Now, many people are stating that fight and mismatches like it, should never have happened and that Showtime, looking for a while like they were going to be the network that would broadcast quality boxing matches has lost it. Do you agree?


You pay the bills fans, so what do YOU think?


And don’t forget to join the fun on Friday nights as I join Randy Gordon and Gerry Cooney on their “Friday Night at the Fights” satellite radio show on Sirius/XM Sports Zone Channel 92.


We’ll discuss the “Barbershop” question of the week and anything boxing-related you’d like to share or talk about.


The show runs from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., ET, and you can call in and let us know what you think by dialing 1-866-522-2846.


We look forward to hearing from you!
