The tailspin of Andre Berto is another hot issue.

 Mike Weaver's career path changed one night in North Carolina when, as an 18-year-old U.S. Marine, he was pushed away from a jukebox, and pushed back. An exchange of punches left the other guy -- the Marine Corps heavyweight champion -- out cold on the floor.

  Weaver overcame a slow start to his pro career (six losses in his first 12 fights) and won the WBA heavyweight crown in 1980 with a dramatic knockout of unbeaten John Tate -- and he held the title for almost three years.

  "Hercules" joined us on the July 7, 2013 edition of The Ringside Boxing Show for a lively conversation about his life, his career, and his younger brothers -- Floyd, Lloyd and Troy -- the only identical triplets in pro boxing history.
