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.

Veteran boxing trainers Abel Sanchez and Max Garcia joined us on the Feb. 28 edition to explain how they try to get a boxer's head screwed on properly before a fight. We ask them whether great fighters feel fear, why some glare into their opponent's eyes while others avert their gaze, where the line falls between confidence and overconfidence, whether smack talk is effective, how sparring partners are selected, why some boxers get cold feet when the spotlight gets bright ... and much more.

This remarkable conversation with two outstanding corner men is an education for even hardcore boxing fans.

Our conversation with Abel Sanchez and Max Garcia is preceded by analysis by John J. Raspanti and Travis Hartman of the weekend's big fighters --  Frampton-Quigg, Santa Cruz-Kiko, Crawford-Lundy -- plus opinions about the movement to make pro fighters eligible to compete in the Olympics.

The last time Abel Sanchez was on The Ringside Boxing Show, he told us Gennady Golovkin -- a rising star at the time -- was already the whole package, and the best fighter he'd ever worked with. (This, from the guy who trained Hall of Famer Terry Norris.)

Nowadays Golovkin is as much myth as man, but Sanchez says he's still a humble person ... and the funniest guy in the gym.

This insightful conversation is preceded by an update from Paul Mendez's trainer, Sam Garcia, on an upcoming fight for "El Gallo Negro." And we lead off, as always, with expert analysts Rizwaan Zahid and John J. Raspanti to talk about the beheading of James Kirkland, Cotto-Canelo, and a little bit of Pacquiao.

  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.
