What do they take us for? Manny Pacquiao and Freddie Roach are trying to convince us that Australian Jeff Horn (16-0-1, no A-list opponents) is an inspiring threat to the future Hall of Famer.

Meanwhile, Colin McGregor's promoter, UFC czar Dana White, says his fighter (0-0) is no joking matter for Floyd Mayweather (49-0).

Our expert analysts, Travis Hartman and John J. Raspanti, unpack both match-ups, psychoanalyze supporters of the underdogs, and also tell us what to expect from Broner vs. Mikey, and speculate about a possible Rigondeaux-Lomachenko collision.

This wide-reaching discussion is followed by an eye-opening interview with Adrian Clark, a 31-year-old boxing manager/agent (and author of Protect Yourself At All Times) who is on a quest to convince fighters that people who want 33 percent of their purses are ripping them off in a very big way.

This is a conversation guaranteed to enlighten fighters, managers, promoters and fans of "The Sweet Science."

Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. had everything to gain against Canelo Alvarez -- most of all, a chance to make the boxing public (especially Mexican fans) forgive him for past missteps. He's been lazy, uncommitted, often lackadaisical in the gym (even smoking dope in at least one training camp). He's lacked discipline with his diet, hasn't work well with with a Who's Who of boxing trainers, and he has failed to live up to the (unfair?) expectations of a bigger-than-life family name.

A leave-it-in-the-ring effort against Canelo, win or lose, would have clensed him forever. Instead, he turned in one of the worst performances of his career when the stakes were highest and his legacy was on the line.

Boxing experts Travis Hartman, Rizwaan Zahid, and John J. Raspanti review the fight, break down what happened, and try to explain how and why Chavez left his "A Game" in the gym. Their insightful explanations and analysis might surprise you.

The second half of our show is another treat as we replay a classic interview we did with 1950s boxing legend Tony DeMarco, a Hall of Famer who fought classic, toe-to-toe fights with Carmen Basilio, Johnny Saxton, Gasper Ortega, Don Jordan, and other greats from the "Golden Age of Boxing."

Canelo Alvarez and his promoter, Oscar De La Hoya, have become remarkably adroit at stacking barriers in the road to a long-awaited superfight with Gennady Golovkin -- the latest being the  claim (based on somewhat-valid evidence: only 177,000 recent PPV buys for the Jacobs fight) that the public doesn't care much about Golovkin.

On the other hand, most observers of the Sweet Science seem to agree that no fight seems as mouthwatering right now as Canelo-GGG ... so what's the deal? Our expert analysts discuss the possibility that De La Hoya and Canelo are waiting for Golovkin to age a bit more -- maybe until his flesh is decomposing -- before risking Golden Boy's meal ticket in a fight Golovkin would be favored to win.

We also talk about Canelo's more-immediate concern -- the upcoming clash with an unusually motivated Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. -- plus the youth-versus-experience showdown between Joshua and Klitschko, and, finally, who deserves to be No. 1 on the Pound 4 Pound list.

This rousing discussion sets the stage for our memorable and revealing conversation with Dicky Eklund (Micky Ward's brother and co-inspiration for "The Fighter.")

Mikey Garcia says 2 1/2 years in mothballs -- the result of a contract dispute with Top Rank --  have left him bigger, stronger and hungrier
as he prepares to return to the ring on July 30 against former world champ Elio Rojas in Brooklyn.

He'll bring a 34-0 record, with 28 KOs, into Barclays Arena, where, as a promotional free agent, he knows there's a lot at stake. But Garcia expects to impress, with minimal ring rust, and get back in the express lane toward a spot in the International Boxing Hall of Fame.

Our 30-minute interview with Mike Garcia is preceded by a fiery debate by expert analysts Travis Hartman, Rizwaan Zahid, and John J. Raspanti over the merits of the stunning Golovkin-Brook match-up.

A lively, quick-moving show, wall-to-wall.

Expert analysts Travis Hartman and Rizwaan Zahid go in depth on a spectacular night of boxing the previous evening, featuring Sergio Martinez's lopsided victory (which nearly became a KO loss) against Julio Cesar Chavez Jr., Canelo Alvarez's 5th-round TKO of Josesito Lopez, and the magnificent performance of a re-made Marcos Maidana.

 This is the first half of the September 16, 2012 edition of The Ringside Boxing Show, which features an in-depth interview with author Mark Kriegel ("The Good Son: The Life of Ray 'Boom Boom' Mancini") after the commercial break.
