Ringside Boxing Show (8-11-13) Part I

August 12th, 2013

Expert analysts Travis Hartman and Rizwaan Zahid opine on a variety of hot topics, such as whether Don King deserves a place in anybody's hall of fame, how delectable a Thurman-Guerrero fight might be, if anybody wants a Darchinyan-Donaire rematch, and Deontay Wilder's chances of reviving the heavyweight division.

John J. Raspanti of doghouseboxing.com then joins us to talk about one of the greatest boxing movies ever made, Rod Serling's "Requiem for a Heavyweight."

This is the first half of our Aug. 11, 2013 show featuring and in-depth interview with trainer Abel Sanchez (14 world champions, including Gennady Golovkin) after the commercial break.

In Depth: Trainer Abel Sanchez

August 11th, 2013

  He has trained 13 other world champions, including Hall of Famer Terry Norris, but Abel Sanchez says the best fighter he's ever had during his 33-year career is Gennady Golovkin.

  Sanchez explained what makes "GGG" great, as a fighter and a person, during an outstanding, in-depth interview on The Ringside Boxing Show.

  This is the second half of our Aug. 11, 2013 show, which features Travis Hartman, Rizwaan Zahid and John J. Raspanti (discussing "Requiem for a Heavyweight") during the first half hour.

August 5th, 2013

 Our expert analysts, Travis Hartman and Rizwaan Zahid, try to decipher the strange mind of Julio Cesar Chavez Jr., who banned his famous father from his training camp (again), and then, a couple of days later, announced that "El Gran Campion Mexico" would become his head trainer for the upcoming fight with Brian Vera. Travis and Riz also tell us whether a fight between Chris Arreola and Seth Mitchell will be worth watching, if Deontay Wilder will earn a Klitschko shot with a win over Sergey Liakhovich, and if Miguel Cotto is, by choice, quietly riding into the sunset by fighting a solid-but-second tier opponent like Delvin Rodriguez.

 Trainer Max Garcia then joins us to talk about recent victories by his dynamic duo, middleweight Paul Mendez and junior welterweight Darwin Price, at Redwood City, Calif.

  This is the first half of our Aug. 4, 2013 show, featuring a fascinating, in-depth interview with "Iceman" John Scully after the midshow commercial break.

In Depth: “Iceman” John Scully

August 5th, 2013

 When he was 15, just months after be began sparring as an amateur boxer, John Scully began suffering from severe headaches. Though the problem tormented him for more than a year, Scully told nobody, understanding full well that he'd be forced to stop boxing if anyone found out.

 He went on to become a decorated amateur (he beat the reigning world champ en route to the '88 U.S. Olympic Trials) and a world-ranked pro who fought the likes of Michael Nunn and IBF light heavyweight king Henry Maske.

  Now a prominent trainer, he continues to spar regularly with his fighters at age 46.

  "The Iceman" joined us on the Aug. 4, 2013 edition of The Ringside Boxing Show to discuss his love affair with the sport -- an addiction, he calls it -- and explain why so many fighters stay in the ring long after their skills have diminished.

  This interview is a fascinating look into the mind of a fighter who understood the risks of the sport from his earliest days, but, even now, would rather be inside the ropes than anywhere else.
