We haven’t seen Wladimir Klitschko since his loss to Anthony Joshua in 2017, but rumor has it that he’s regained his appetite for the sport.

Klitschko now sounds serious about challenging Dillian Whyte at Wembley Stadium in April. He’s a class act and an easy guy to root for, but does anybody really want to see the heavyweight division back in the hands of a Klitschko? That’s one of multiple topics we discuss on this week’s show, along with Crawford-Khan, Pacquiao-Broner, Canelo-GGG III, the high ceilings of Devin Haney and Ruben Villa IV, and Kelly Pavlik’s flirtation with returning after a six-year layoff — as a cruiserweight!.

Our British correspondent, Paul McLaughlin, chimes in with updates on Tyson Fury, Dereck Chisora, and Liam Smith.

And we bring it home with an outstanding, in-depth interview with referee Vic Drakulich, who discusses his 31-year career that has included 560 fights (51 for world championship belts), plus the $22.6 million judgment he won for a client as a Reno, Nev., attorney.

Dennis Taylor is host of The Ringside Boxing Show, editor/publisher of www.ringsideboxingshow.com, and co-author (with John J. Raspanti) of “Intimate Warfare: The True Story of the Arturo Gatti and Micky Ward Boxing Trilogy,” an Amazon bestseller.
