In depth: Amir Mansour, heavyweight contender

May 26th, 2013

Amir Mansour grew up on some mean streets and fell into the drug culture in the 1980s, a decision that landed him in prison for 8 1/2 years (plus another six-month stint later) and interrupted a 9-0 boxing career.

Since his release, Mansour, 40, has boosted his record to 18-0, with 14 KOs, with an explosiveness that reminds some of Mike Tyson's heyday. More important, he's also turned his life around.

Mansour gave us a deeply honest and candid interview on the May 25, 2013 edition of The Ringside Boxing Show, one of the most-fascinating conversations we've had in a long time. Don't miss this one.
