Just a few days after PJ Washington joined the show, we have another very special Aaron Torres Sports Podcast for you on this Monday. Aaron recaps a wild weekend at the Kentucky Derby and discusses the NCAA looking into Arizona’s basketball program. Then, as promised, Aaron is joined by former heavyweight champ Michael Bentt, for a long look at his career and his new show on Netflix “Losers.” Here’s today’s rundown:

Kentucky Derby Controversy: Aaron recorded today’s show immediately after the Kentucky Derby and discusses the controversy with Country House winning this race after Maximum Security was disqualified. Aaron feels bad for Maximum Security bettors and admits he didn’t know there was replay review in horse racing. Also, did the stewards get the call right?

Arizona is Being Investigated by the NCAA: In what is essentially the only college hoops news of recent days, Aaron discusses the NCAA investigating Arizona basketball and why honestly, it isn’t as big a deal as it sounds. Aaron also asks the question: If the FBI couldn’t find proof that Sean Miller was cheating, and the NCAA cleared both DeAndre Ayton and Jahvon Quinerly (the recruit who accepted money) how much trouble can they get in?

Former heavyweight champ Michael Bentt joins the show: Finally, Aaron is joined by former heavyweight champ Michael Bentt to discuss his long, winding career, and his new show on Netflix “Losers.” They discuss the highs of his career, which included being the heavyweight champion of the world, and the lows of getting knocked out in front of millions of people. Bentt’s complicated relationship with his dad, and his new life as a boxing trainer to Hollywood stars like Will Smith and Clint Eastwood. This episode is unlike anything Aaron has done in the past!
