The light heavyweight title unification fight between Beterbiev and Smith Jr. is set for June 18. The two-part Blood, Sweat & Tears pre-fight documentary series will begin airing on ESPN platforms Sunday.
The conclusion of ESPN's Saturday report came true, but not the "is retiring" tense. Was Brady set to retire and then pulled back after that report, even lying about not making a decision yet on air Monday, or was the initial report not quite right? Both scenarios are possible.
