Boxing writer Anson Wainwright of The Ring Magazine and RingTV.com joined us to discuss the increasingly relevant boxing scene in the United Kingdom, with it's fascinating personalities (the Fury cousins, the Eubanks, Haye and Bellew) and exciting upcoming matchups, like Joshua-Klitschko and Brook-Spence.

This is a unique perspective you won't hear everyday, an insider's look at a region of the world enjoying a renaissance period in The Sweet Science.

Our interview with Anson is preceeded by a breakdown of a sensational Saturday -- Thurman-Garcia, Haye-Bellew, and more -- by expert analysts Travis Hartman, Rizwaan Zahid and John J. Raspanti.

 Tony DeMarco won the welterweight championship of the world in 1955, beating Johnny Saxton by TKO in the 14th round of a fight whose brutality typified the career of the "Boston Bomber."

  His 14-year career included spectacular battles with Carmen Basilio, Virgil Aikens, Gaspar Ortega and Kid Gavilan, among others, during The Golden Age of Boxing.

 In his heyday, during one 18 month stretch, DeMarco fought 10 times against the toughest opposition in the division.

 On Jan. 14, 2017, DeMarco celebrated his 85th birthday in Boston. This interview, conducted by Dennis Taylor, "Irish" Joe O'Rourke, and David Duenez of "Leave It In The Ring," took place in 2012, five days before his 80th birthday.

 Our Tony DeMarco replay is preceded by our expect analysts, Rizwaan Zahid and John J. Raspanti, who dissect Saturday's spectacular super middleweight unification brawl between Badou Jack and James DeGale, the coming-out party of Gervonta Davis in the semi-main event, Julio Cesar Chavez Jr's challenge of making weight against Canelo or paying a $1 million-per-pound fine, and a look forward at Frampton-Santa Cruz II, Garcia-Thurman, and Cotto-Kirkland.

Is British boxing going through a renaissance, or has the Internet simply made the world a smaller place for fight fans?

That's a question we posed on Sunday's Ringside Boxing Show to The Ring Magazine's Anson Wainwright, born and reared in the UK, where he finds himself covering Amir Khan, Kell Brook, Carl Frampton, the Fury cousins, Scott Quigg, Anthony Joshua, Billy Joe Saunders, James DeGale, Chris Eubank Jr., and, whether you realize it or not, a whole bunch of other top-drawer fighters. Was the talent pool in Jolly Old England this deep in 'Enry Cooper's day?

During a wide-ranging, 30-minute interview, Wainwright handicaps Tyson Fury's chances of pulling the upset over Wladimir Klitschko, speculates whether Khan and Brook would sell every seat at Wembley Stadium, considers who would have prevailed in a fight between Calzaghe and Froch (both in the ring, and in a dark alley after a few pints), and much more.

Prepare for an insightful education from a deep-thinking international boxing writer.

Our interview with Anson Wainwright is preceded by a check on current events by two of our expert analysts. John J. Raspanti and Rizwaan Zahid, who, among other topics, try to explain why old fighters (Mosley, Mayorga, Tarver, Freitas, Briggs, Jones, Ruddock ... will Jake LaMotta be next?) just keep hanging on.

Listen to The Ringside Boxing Show live every Sunday at www.radiomonterey.com, beginning at 4 p.m. Pacific, 5 Mountain, 6 Central, 7 Eastern. Visit www.ringsideboxingshow.com for worldwide times.
Dennis Taylor is editor/publisher of www.ringsideboxingshow.com and host of The Ringside Boxing Show.

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.

The United Kingdom's lively boxing scene was the topic of conversation with Sunday's featured guest, Welsh boxing writer Anson Wainwright, who stayed up late (after midnight in Wales) for a live conversation about Calzaghe, Cleverly, Prince Naz, Henry Cooper and others. The Ring Magazine correspondent also theorized about the whereabouts of all those lager-fueled songbirds who followed Ricky Hatton everywhere he went..

 This is a great show that opens with expert analysis by Rizwaan Zahid and John J. Raspanti of Klitschko-Pulev, the Shannon Briggs' Stalk-a-Thon, Algieri's chances against Pacquiao, and more. Fun stuff, wall to wall.
