I always enter the week with a plan of who I'd like to have on the show. The list usually is 4 or 5 names deep. On weeks, such as this, where I can't get my A list names, I'm often left scrambling to find guests. Even when they're not the biggest stars in the sport, the guests are usually very good.
As of early Thursday afternoon, I still hadn't filled one of the slots with a top name guest. As I was going through my contact list, my phone rang. Could we put Bernard Hopkins on tonight? Umm, yeah I think I can squeeze him in.
So tonight we've got B-Hop and Fighnews/Fightwriter's Graham Houston.
Also, I'm going to talk about my harrowing experience announcing the Spinks - Latimore fight.
Tune in tonight.
