Badou Jack is Gambian and Swedish -- not the typical genetic recipe for a prizefighter -- but he stunned previously unbeaten Anthony Dirrell in April to win the WBC super middleweight crown.

Jack "The Ripper" joined us Aug. 30 to discuss his win over Dirrell, his upcoming fight with George Groves (Sept. 12 at the MGM Grand), his relationship with promoter Floyd Mayweather Jr., and how his wife took the news that he had to cut their honeymoon short to get back to the gym.

Our interview with Badou is preceded by a conversation with expert analysts Travis Hartman, Rizwaan Zahid, and John J. Raspanti about Leo Santa Cruz's star-making performance against a worthy Abner Mares, Shane Mosley's weird decision to fight a rematch with (a predictably flabby) Ricardo Mayorga, and Floyd Mayweather's new stalker -- Ronda Rousey.

Andre Dirrell was clearly one of the best super middleweights in the world when he fought Carl Froch and Arthur Abraham in the Super Six Tournament.

He lost to Froch by split decision in England, and was ahead on all scorecards when Abraham got DQ'd for throwing a sucker punch while Dirrell was already down.

 That shot from Abraham rendered Dirrell unconscious and left him with neurological damage that put him on the sidelines for almost three years.

At long last, "The Matrix" is back and looking to finish what he started with the best super middleweights in the world. He says he used his time off wisely -- not only staying in shape, but learning new techniques in the gym -- and is happier today than he's ever been.

This is a terrific interview with a fighter who (like his cancer-surviving world champion brother) is very easy to root for..

The Dirrell interview is preceded by analysis by Travis Hartman and John J. Raspanti of Showtime's tripleheader, including evaluations of Omar Figueroa Jr, Anthony Dirrell, and the Brook-Porter main event.

Boxing trainer Sam Garcia also joins us during the first half of the show to discuss his middleweight, Paul Mendez.
