We here at the Mas are proud to announce a new partnership with Pound 4 Pound Radio, the only boxing show on Sirius XM. We’ll be cross-promoting with them and they will be taking part and drawing participants to our “call-the-round” t-shirt contests for the big fights. The next such contest will be for the Bradley/Campbell fight on August 1st, and let me tell you something, Masians – gonna be a lot more action on that one than there has been in the past, so you better get your thinking caps on right now.
Also, starting next week, I will be making regular appearances on their radio show, which airs on Thursday nights at 7 p.m. EST at Sirius/XM 98. I urge you to check it out, because it’s really an excellent show with a regular roster of top-notch guests. Take tonight, for instance, which is a special Arturo Gatti tribute show. They’ll be talking Gatti with Ross Greenburg, Ivan Robinson, Micky Ward and Buddy McGirt.
Quite a lineup. And that’s not at all the “Mas on the Radio” news I have up my sleeve. The one and only Chief Executive Masian (he’s like Oscar, I’m like Richard Schaefer… or maybe I’m Bernard… that’s a bad thought, actually), the I-berglar, Chris Isenberg, will be making an appearance on a show called “Under Score” on the same station (Sirius/XM 98) at 3 p.m. tomorrow. Under Score is a show that focuses on the intersection of sports with society at large, art, culture, whatnot, obviously fertile terrain for I-berglary.
I’ve included below a few links to both shows for you to sample below, and also a link to a piece of mine from over at The Sporting Blog, which gives my thoughts on Showtime’s Super Six tournament, which I gather will be one of my primary topics of conversation on Pound 4 Pound next week.

Showtime’s Boxing Tournament Doomed Early
“Therein lies the most glaring problem with their tournament, a problem not unfamiliar to those schools left out in the cold come Selection Sunday for March Madness. And this is no 64-team field. Showtime has six fighters locked up for this tournament, and they are indeed six worthy names. But not among those six is the current champion of the IBF (one of the three major sanctioning organizations), the Romanian by way of Montreal, Lucian Bute (pronounced, to my great delight, ‘boo-TAYâ€).”
