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."

NOTE TO LISTENERS: The Ringside Boxing Show is now a proud member of thegruelingtruth.net sports network. Please check us out there!

Sonny Liston may have been the most-feared, least-understood heavyweight boxer in history, an ex-con and street thug who worked as a thumb-breaker for the mob, and whose boxing contract was owned by gangsters Frankie Carbo and Blinky Palermo of Murder Inc.

But author Paul Gallender, through 40 years of research, has uncovered a different side of Liston, a story he tells in his two biographies, "Sonny LIston: The Real Story Behind the Ali-Liston Fights," and the recently published "Sonny Liston: In a New Light."

Gallender joined us on The Ringside Boxing Show to paint a picture of a man with two very different personalities -- sullen, glowering, and frightening in the boxing world, and warm, generous, and affectionate when few were watching.

Our interview with Paul Gallender is preceded by expert analysts Travis Hartman and John J. Raspanti, who discuss Ward vs. Kovalev, Pacquiao's future, Froch's humiliating experience at the Joshua-Klitschko box office, the dark secret of Julio Cesar Chavez Jr., and more.

We open this show with a lively 30-minute discussion of Bernard Hopkins' brutal exit from the ring, the coming-out party of Joe Smith Jr., Alexander Povetkin's future after a second-straight dirty drug test, Golovkin vs. Jacobs, Terence Crawford's 50-day jail sentence, Canelo-Chavez Jr., Andre Ward retirement romors, and the WBC's strange decisoni to ban dad's as chief seconds for their boxing sons.

And then, when a scheduled guest cancels, we replay a classic interview with Australian legend Jeff Fenech, whose life was as colorful as his career was great.

Henry Armstrong became the undisputed featherweight champion of the world in Oct. 1937, moved up 21 pounds to take the welterweight crown from all-time great Barney Ross the following May, and then, three months later, dropped to 135 to beat Hall of Fame lightweight king Lou Ambers.
Edward Scott Jr., the grandson of "Homicide Hank," was our featured guest on this edition of The Ringside Boxing Show to discuss the life and legend of Henry Armstrong, who became a Baptist minister and created the Henry Armstrong Foundation to serve at-risk youth. Scott has made the foundation his life's work in his grandfather's memory.
Our interview with Edward Scott Jr. is preceded by a colorful conversation with unbeaten heavyweight David Latoria, who, in his other job, is a Chicago Police officer.
And, as always, expert analysts Travis Hartman, Rizwaan Zahid and John J. Raspanti lead off, breaking down Tyson Fury's cocaine mess, Manny Pacquiao's inexplicable political alignment with a Philippines president who admires Hitler, the mouthwatering Walters-Lomachenko fight, and more.

Armando Muniz never won a world championship, but fought Hal of Famers for the welterweight crown four times -- twice against Carlos Palomino, two other tmes against Jose Napoles. He also went to war with most of the premiere 147-pound fighters of his time -- everybody from Emile Griffith to Sugar Ray Leonard -- and was impressive enough to gain induction into the now-defunct World Boxing Hall of Fame.

Muniz was the featured guest on Sunday's Ringside Boxing Show, preceded by determined Puerto Rican contender Orlando Del Valle, who discussed his upcoming Pay-Per-View date with Diego De La Hoya.

As always, our show opened with the expert analysis of Rizwaan Zahid and John J. Raspanti, who unpack the Golovkin-Brook and Chocolatito-Cuadras fights from the night before.

Jace McTier grew up in the shadow of Augusta National, home of the Masters, but he's first love as a sports fan and as an artist has always been boxing.

He was just 16 years old when he was commissioned to create his first commercial painting, and since then his work has been displayed all over the world, including The International Boxing Hall of Fame and (currently) the "I Am The Greatest" Muhammad Ali exhibit at London's 02 Arena.

We spoke in-depth with McTier (with a special cameo appearance by George Foreman IV) on the July 17 edition of the Ringside Boxing Show, during which he shared sensational stories about the experiences his artwork has created for him in the world of boxing.

Our interview with Jace McTier -- which includes a surprise appearance from George Foreman IV -- is preceded by a passionate round-table dissection by expert analysts  Travis Hartman, Rizwaan Zahid and John J. Raspanti of the gutsy culture of professional boxing, including Deontay Wilder's choice to fight eight rounds with a torn biceps and a broken hand, Israel Vazquez's announcement that he'll have his damaged right eye surgically removed, and other recollections of gain-before-pain performances from boxing history.

The sixth-greatest heavyweight in boxing history (Ring Magazine), George Foreman, joined us Sunday for a spectacular retrospective on a big, amazing life.

Foreman told us what it was like to face machine guns at a Venezuelan airport when he tried to leave after the Norton fight, and also talked about ... reading to Sonny Liston ... the lightning combination Ali used to put him down in Zaire ... knocking out undefeated world champions Joe Frazier and Michael Moorer 21 years apart .. what it was like to watch his daughter box ...the Svengali talents of Angelo Dundee ... the come-to-Jesus moment that turned him from puncher to preacher after the Jimmy Young loss ... and (believe it or not) much, much more.

This was a pretty special conversation with a member of boxing's Mount Olympus.

The George Foreman interview is preceded by a thorough breakdown of the Pacquiao-Bradley weekend by expert analysts Travis Hartman, Rizwaan Zahid and John J. Raspanti.

As kids, walking home through the vicious, gang-infested streets of Spanish Harlem, Joe Cortez and his brother, Mike, would dangle their boxing gloves outside their gym bags. The result, he says, is that nobody messed with them, even though Cortez won his first Golden Gloves titles as a flyweight.

The Hall of Fame referee joined us for his second appearance on The Ringside Boxing Show to tell Easter Sunday stories about the biggest fights of multiple eras -- Whitaker-Chavez, Holyfield-Bowe, Mosley-De La Hoya, Duran-Barkley, Barrera-Hamed -- all of which he officiated.

This is a sensational stroll through a big piece of boxing history, with Cortez as guide, telling you how it all looked from three feet away.

Our Joe Cortez interview is preceded by a thorough unpacking of the Ward-Barrera and JoJo Diaz-Jayson Velez fights, and a look at what lies ahead for the winners, by John J. Raspanti, Travis Hartman and Rizwaan Zahid.

Before he became host of "In This Corner," America's only weekly, syndicated TV boxing interview show, James "Smitty" Smith became the 11-year-old buddy of heavyweight champion Muhammad Ali, worked as a bal boy for the unbeaten '72 MIami Dolphins, played wide receiver at Minnesota Tech, and fought four times as a pro with no amateur experience.

The colorful broadcast journalist joined us  on Sept. 27, 2015 to regale our audience with colorful stories from a "blessed" life, and discuss his unique TV show, which frequently has included sparring sessions against the likes of Bernard Hopkins, Alexis Arguello, Joe Calzaghe, Sugar Ray Leonard, Mike Tyson and (most recently) Amir Khan.

   Can anybody else on earth claim to have traded punches with a lineup like that?

Our interview with "Smitty" is preceded by John J. Raspanti's analysis of Deontay Wilder's beatdown of Johann Duhaupas, Tyson Fury's reaction to Klitschko's postponement, Freddie Roach's declaration that Golovkin (not Pacquiao?) is Mayweather's successor as No. 1 P4P, and more.

A fun and interesting show, wall to wall.
