Welsh boxing writer Anson Wainwright sat ringside in exotic Monte Carlo on Saturday for Golovkin-Murray, flew home to England, then stayed up late to talk to us on Sunday's Ringside Boxing Show about Froch, the Furys, Khan, Mayweather-Pacquiao, and, of course, Golovkin Murray. Another colorful interview with the Ring Magazine/RingTV.com scribe.

The Anson Wainwright conversation is preceded by Travis Hartman's triumphant return to The Ringside Boxing Show (after six weeks in Australia as a women's tennis groupie) to rejoin Rizwaan Zahid and John J. Raspanti for a breakdown of Golovkin-Murray, Pacquiao-Mayweather, and more. A fun and fascinating hour.

John J. Raspanti, chief lead writer for doghouseboxing.com and maxboxing.com, joined us Sunday to discuss the circus that is boxing, including the latest from the Mayweather-Pacquiao front, and whether Tyson Fury honestly believes what he told police during a roadside traffic stop for alleged reckless driving: Namely, that he's a "superstar" who planned to report the cops to their superiors for "jealousy."

Raspanti also weighs in on the odds (slim) that Martin Murray can survive 12 rounds with Gennady Golovkin, the nerve (and sincerity) of David Lemieux and Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. in calling out GGG, Al Haymon's decision to protect Leo Santa Cruz from Guillermo Rigondeaux, Juan Manuel Marquez's temptation to fight on at age 41, and Jermain Taylor's apparent mental-health issues.

The plan for  the second half of Sunday's show -- a live interview with Robert Guerrero -- evaporated when the "Ghost" was MIA, so a classic 2010 interview with Kronk Gym legend Milton McCrory fills the rest of the hour.

One of the most-memorable interviews we've ever done on The Ringside Boxing Show was a conversation with Milton McCrory, who grew up tough (with little brother Steve) in Detroit, walked into Kronk Gym one day, and became part of a legendary boxing stable.

McCrory spoke in depth about Kronk, Emanuel Steward, Tommy Hearns, his late, great brother Steve (Olympic gold medalist, world champion), and the thrill of winning his own world title belt in the welterweight division.

If you're among those legions of boxing fans who think Tommy Morrison died of AIDS, Sunday's riveting interview on the Ringside Boxing Show might abruptly change your opinion.

Trisha Morrison laid out a compelling, comprehensive and (dare we say) convincing case that "The Duke" got a raw deal from a lot of different people (she's naming names) before he died too young in 2013.

The Trisha Morrison interview is preceded by typically great insight from our expert analysts, Rizwaan Zahid and John J. Raspanti, on Canelo, Cotto, Khan and Kirkland (all one conversation), Gary Shaw's three-week romance with Roc Nation, Andre Ward's HBO problem, and the potential pyrotechnics of Keith Thurman vs. Robert Guerrero, and Terence Crawford vs. Mikey Garcia.
