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.

 When Armando Muniz fought Carlos Palomino for the WBC welterweight championship in 1977, it marked the first time in the history of the sport that two college graduates had met for a world title.

 Muniz fought four times for the title, but never won -- unless you count the infamous robbery that took place in Guadalajara against defending champion Jose Napoles. That one still sticks in the craw of Muniz, whose list of opponents in an 18-year career also included Emile Griffith, Angel Espada, Ernie "Little Red" Lopez, Hedgemon Lewis, Pete Ranzany and Sugar Ray Leonard.

We did an unusually lengthy interview with Munoz -- 40 minutes -- discussing his life before and after boxing, his classic fights, his experience as a member of the 1968 U.S. Olympic Team in Mexico City, and much more. Enjoy an amazing conversation with "El Hombre" from the May 6, 2012 edition of the Ringside Boxing Show.
