Ray Mercer, one of the most underappreciated heavyweights of his era, fought Larry Holmes, Evander Holyfield, Wladimir Klitschko, Lennox Lewis, Tommy Morrison, Bert Cooper, and multiple other big-time head-bangers in a career that spanned two decades. He won an Olympic gold medal, knocked out two-time UFC heavyweight king Tim Sylvia in 9 seconds of an MMA bout, and ultimately found his way into four different boxing halls of fame.

A dust-up in a hotel lobby two years ago left a simmering grudge between Deontay Wilder and Dominic Breazeale, who will settle their differences May 18 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

The Bronze Bomber joined us Sunday for his fourth appearance on The Ringside Boxing Show to discuss the feud, Fury, Joshua, and why he walked away from a $100 million to fight for DAZN.

Wilder, always one of the best interviews in boxing, brings the heat, as usual, in this lively, in-depth interview.

He was The Ring Magazine’s Prospect of the Year in 2013, one of the most-feared up-and-comers in the sport, until he walked into a monstrous uppercut in the opening round of his world title fight with Jermell Charlo.

Erickson Lubin has stopped two opponents since then, and is teeming with confidence about his chances of beating everybody else in the 154-pound weight division — a cast of characters that includes Tony Harrison (who just took Charlo’s belt), Jaime Munguia, Jarrett Hurd, Brian Castano, Julian Williams, and Kell Brook.

“The Hammer” recently put his career in the hands of Kevin Cunningham, best known training Adrien Broner, and for taking two other southpaws (Devon Alexander and Corey Spinks) to the top of the mountain.

Don’t miss this in-depth interview with a 22-year-old force of nature who has a legitimate shot at becoming a superstar in the sport.
