The Boxing Writers Association of America's Trainer of the Year Award winner discusses Spence-Crawford, his growing clientele and more.
Reigning BWAA Trainer of the Year Derrick James and top super welterweight contender Carlos Ocampo are this week's guests on a stacked PBC Podcast. Arguably the best trainer in the sport, James discusses the highly anticipated undisputed battle between his fighter, unbeaten WBC/WBA/IBF Welterweight World Champion Errol Spence Jr., and unbeaten WBO Champion Terence Crawford taking place Saturday, July 29, in a Premier Boxing Champions main event from T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, live on SHOWTIME Pay-Per-View. James also updates fans on the rest of his stable, including the latest addition, Ryan Garcia.
Ocampo shares his thoughts on his upcoming showdown versus unbeaten hard-hitter Tim Tszyu and a potential dream bout versus the division king, undisputed world champion Jermell Charlo. Plus, hosts Kenneth Bouhairie and Michael Rosenthal break down the Spence-Crawford matchup and, in this week's Toe to toe, list five fights they hope to see in 2023.
