Boxing’s braintrusts: Trainers Abel Sanchez and Max Garcia

September 25th, 2016

When you've spent decades thinking deep thoughts about boxing, you tend to pick up a few things. We went deep for 30 minutes with West Coast trainers Abel Sanchez and Max Garcia, discussing a cornucopia of topics:
This is a rapid-paced, short-attention-span, interview that covers a dozen different topics that all fight fans wonder about.

This unusual dissection of the sport's mysteries is preceded by a check-in from expert analysts Travis Hartman and John J. Raspanti on the West Coast Boxing Hall of Fame, Tyson Fury's troubles, Anthony Joshua's rush down glory road, a health report on the sport, and more.

 

Rick Farris: West Coast boxing royalty

September 18th, 2016

Rick Farris was an amateur boxing champ who fought 19 times as a pro, was stablemates with Jerry Quarry, sparred with Roberto Duran, Alexis Arguello, Ruben Olivares, Carlos Ortiz, "Schoolboy" Bobby Chacon, Danny "Little Red" Lopez, met gangster Mickey Cohen, became a celebrated Hollywood lighting director, and founded the West Coast Boxing Hall of Fame.

Think he's got stories? You're right.

Armando Muniz and Orlando Del Valle

September 11th, 2016

Armando Muniz never won a world championship, but fought Hal of Famers for the welterweight crown four times -- twice against Carlos Palomino, two other tmes against Jose Napoles. He also went to war with most of the premiere 147-pound fighters of his time -- everybody from Emile Griffith to Sugar Ray Leonard -- and was impressive enough to gain induction into the now-defunct World Boxing Hall of Fame.

Muniz was the featured guest on Sunday's Ringside Boxing Show, preceded by determined Puerto Rican contender Orlando Del Valle, who discussed his upcoming Pay-Per-View date with Diego De La Hoya.

As always, our show opened with the expert analysis of Rizwaan Zahid and John J. Raspanti, who unpack the Golovkin-Brook and Chocolatito-Cuadras fights from the night before.
