Re: Teddy Atlas Calling Fights On ESPN…

Viewers who tuned in to ESPN on Thursday evening, and readied themselves for some boxing put together by Golden Boy Promotions were not met with the sight and sound of analyst Teddy Atlas, as had been custom.

The scraps, topped by a main event, were called by Bernardo Osuna and Joel Diaz, for the record.

I asked around and learned that Teddy fans can rest easier.

No, Atlas wasn’t bounced from his slot of anything a GB person told me.

But yes, he will be working Golden Boy/ESPN cards on a selective basis, I was told.

Still putting that lime in the coconut, then…

Editor/publisher Michael Woods got addicted to boxing in 1990, when Buster Douglas shocked the world with his demolition of the thought to be impregnable Mike Tyson. The Brooklyn-based journalist Woods has covered the sport since then, for ESPN The Magazine, ESPN.com, ESPN New York, RING, and he was editor of TheSweetScience.com from 2007-2015. Woods is also an accomplished blow by blow and color man, having done work for Top Rank, DiBella Entertainment, EPIX, and for Facebook Fightnight Live since 2017. He now does work for PROBOX TV, the first truly global boxing network.
