Atlas Not Part Of Ringside Team
In an interesting move by ESPN, longtime trainer and analyst Teddy Atlas will not be part of the broadcast team for this weekend’s big fight between Vasyl Lomachenko and Guillermo Rigondeaux. Atlas has been involved in all the other broadcast since Top Rank joined ESPN earlier this year.
Atlas has had some controversial moments to say the least on a couple of the shows. He is expected to have a part in a feature for the show.
It is unclear at this time why Atlas isn’t on the broadcast but Atlas has been suspended by the network twice in the past. Once for threatening a crew member and once for after accusing a program director of showing favoritism to certain promoters and matchmakers. Both incidents occured in 2008.
