The summer heat is still blazing as we enter the first full week of August, and you know what that means. 

In baseball they call these the dog days. But for boxing fans, when the calendar shifts from July to August you know that it's only a matter of time before you get to the fall—one of the peak times of year for the sport. And that means we are just a few weeks from the biggest fight of the year.
