Where was this guy when you were in college? Randy Roberts teaches a course in boxing history at Purdue University -- yes, there's a waiting list -- and he also has authored biographies of Jack Dempsey, Jack Johnson and Joe Louis, as well as a book on the rape trial of Mike Tyson.
The professor made his second appearance on our show on Sept. 18, 2011, for an animated and colorful tour of The Sweet Science. Enjoy this fascinating interview.
Hello Randy : Just wanted to thank you for attending my presentation at Purdue University. You are a great person and a man full of knowlege in the sport of boxing. I would like to work hand and hand with your classes, I think that we should talk later on in the week to try and work something out. This would be the frosting on the cake for my retirement in the very near future. Let me know what you think. I could work things out going to Indiana on a regular basis to teach refereeing and judging on a professinal level.
Best regards Joe Cortez
