Mark Breland watched Ali-Frazier I at Madison Square Garden as a 7-year-old Brooklynite, decided he wanted to be a fighter, too, and evolved into perhaps the greatest amateur in U.S. history.
The 6-foot-2 welterweight won the New York Golden Gloves five times, two national titles, a world amateur champ, and the Olympic gold medal during a career when he went 110-1. (Pernell Whitaker lost the same day.)
We spoke in-depth to Breland about training Deontay Wilder, winning two WBA welterweight titles as a pro, and acquiring a taste for catfish and fried okra as a part-time resident of Alabama and South Carolina.

Our interview with Mark Breland is preceded by a surprisingly lively conversation with expert analysts Travis Hartman (hung over from his birthday celebration), Rizwaan Zahid (fighting off laryngitis), and John J. Raspanti (interrupting a hot date) about Sen. Pacquiao's possible return, Canelo's lightweight excuse for not facing GGG this year, Crawford-Postol, Mikey's comeback, and more.

  Ruben Castillo was 22 years old and 46-0 when he went up in weight to fight for Alexis Arguello's super featherweight crown, the first of four world title fights in an 81 fight career. He lost to Arguello and two other all-time greats, the mythical Salvador Sanchez and "El Gran Campion," Julio Cesar Chavez, plus one more title bout against the formidable Juan Deporte.

  Castillo gave us a spectacular interview on April 7, 2013 about Howard Cosell, Don King, Sanchez/Arguello/Chavez, his four wives, and much, much more. The former ringside commentator was on fire, giving us one of the most-colorful and fascinating interviews we've ever had on The Ringside Boxing Show.
