 Expert analysts Travis Hartman and Rizwaan Zahid explore the strange mind of Julio Cesar Chavez Jr, who risks losing a $3 million purse after testing positive for marijuana after his loss to Sergio Martinez. They also address Freddie Roach's ever-changing landscape now that Amir Khan has jumped ship, and Chavez also probably is moving on.

Mancini biographer Mark Kriegel

September 16th, 2012

The biography of former lightweight champion Ray "Boom Boom" Mancini is more compelling as a true story than Sylvester Stallone's "Rocky" fable.

Former New York Daily News staff writer Mark Kriegel tells this riveting tale in a sensational new book, "The Good Son: The Life of Ray 'Boom Boom' Mancini," a masterpiece that seems destined to become his third book to reach the New York Times Bestseller list.

 The author of "Pistol: The Life of Pete Maravich" and "Namath: A Biography" takes readers down the amazing road that was Mancini's life and career, including the idolization of his father, once a No. 1-ranked lightweight contender himself until a war injury ended his career.

 Kriegel joined us on the Sept. 16, 2012 edition of The Ringside Boxing Show to discuss a fighter who, in the 1980s, became a towering example of The American Dream.
