Ringside Boxing Show (6-22-14) Part I

June 23rd, 2014

Our expert analysts, Rizwaan Zahid and John J. Raspanti, give us their take on the spectacular brawl between Guerrero and Yamegai, as well as the impressive victories of Vasyl Lomachenko and Devon Alexander. Riz makes in intriguing prediction about Pacquiao's next opponent. Raspanti, who was ringside in Carson, also gives us an interesting observation of the crowd at StubHub.

This is the first half of our June 22, 2014 show, which features a remarkable, two-part interview after the commercial break with Trisha Harding Morrison, widow of Tommy "The Duke" Morrison. Great stuff here

Trisha Harding, Widow of Tommy Morrison

June 23rd, 2014

Tommy "The Duke" Morrison was a movie star ("Rocky V") when he was 18, and a two-time world heavyweight champion by the time he was 24. Three years later, he was holding a press conference to announce that he had tested positive for the HIV virus.

 It wasn't long before Morrison became convinced that the diagnosis had been wrong, and he spent the rest of his life trying to prove it and restart his boxing career. He died at age 44, but the medical examiner found no trace of HIV in his blood, according to his death certificate.

 Our featured guest on June 22 was Trisha Harding Morrison -- Tommy's wife -- who continues his crusade to prove the original HIV test was bogus. Her evidence is compelling, and she might just change any opinions you might have about the life and death of "The Duke."

Ringside Boxing Show (6-8-14) Part I

June 8th, 2014

Expert analysts Travis Hartman and John J. Raspanti deconstruct Cotto's brilliance against Sergio, tell us whether Puerto Rico's first four-division world champ can beat Mayweather, Canelo, or Golovkin, all  rumored to be under consideration.

As always, their analysis is superb.

This is the first half of our June 8, 2014 show, featuring an excellent interview with undefeated Mike "Yes Indeed" Reed after the midshow commercial break.

In Depth: Mike “Yes Indeed” Reed

June 8th, 2014

Mike Reed hated boxing after his first day in the gym, and lost the first five fights of hs amateur career. Think of him as a slow starter.

The Maryland native and D.C. adoptee became on of the top amateurs of his class, winning four national championships and reaching the semifinals of the 2012 Olympic Trials.

"Yes Indeed" Reed (9-0, 6 KOs)  joined us just six days before his next fight -- a six-rounder Saturday night at Bally's Atlantic City -- to discuss his feats as a 105-pound tight end, how he suffers without sweets, how he and his trainer/manager father make it all work, and his ultimate dream ... to become a certified accountant. Well, that, and winning a world boxing crown somewhere between 135 and 147 pounds.

He's just 21, but he interviews like a veteran. Don't miss this lively conversation with one of the sport's young meteorites.

Ringside Boxing Show (6-1-14) Part 1

June 1st, 2014

Pro boxer Travis Hartman wonders aloud how a ring walk must feel with 80,000 people in the the seats, and tells us about being on the receiving end of an eye-splitting headbutt. He's joined by our other two expert analysts, Rizwaan Zahid and John J. Raspanti, who break down Froch-Groves and Donaire-Vetyeka, among other topics.

Trainer Max Garcia then joins us to discuss what it's like to train an injured fighter for a fight that hasn't been scheduled.
