A Fight Week Conversation with Joe Tessitore

Joe Tessitore joins the podcast this week. We discuss Fury-Wilder II and the insane presser, how big this fight will be, and the pressure of calling it.

I also argue that it's the biggest moment of Tessitore's career and we dive into the impact of a blow-by-blow broadcaster, the most powerful person in boxing, the current state of the sport, and ESPN and FOX working together.

Finally, I ask if he expects to be back calling Monday Night Football next season.
