Her dad, Javier "Baby Face" Gutierrez, was a California Boxing Hall of Famer who didn't think girls should play sports, let alone box, but Blanca Gutierrez fell hard for the sport anyway.

Gutierrez became a national-level kickboxer at 32 -- she even fought Carina Moreno on ESPN once -- and opened her own gym when she felt unwelcome at most men's gyms.

Nowadays, she's the promoter of the Beautiful Brawlers all-female boxing shows in the San Francisco Bay area, trying to kick the door open for women's boxers in the U.S.

We spoke to Gutierrez about her life, her dad, and her passion for the Sweet Science on the Nov. 27 edition of The Ringside Boxing Show.

Before Blanca, we break down Lomachenko's stunning domination of Nicholas Walters -- what the win did for Lomachanko, and what the defeat did to Walters -- with expert analysts Travis Hartman, Rizwaan Zahid, and John J. Raspanti.

Fidel La Barba was an Olympic gold medalist, a world champion boxer, a Hollywood screenwriter who wrote movies for Shirley Temple, Randolph Scott, Betty Grable and Victor Mature, and a Stanford University graduate who enjoyed a 10-year career as a sports writer after his boxing days were over.

He was also a father to John La Barba, who joined us Oct. 23 to tell stories about his legendary dad. Don't miss this sensational conversation about a boxer who won his first world title two years before Babe Ruth hit 60 home runs.

Our interview with John La Barba is preceded by John J. Raspanti's chat with Chicago-based super middleweight Mike "Hollywood" Jimenez (20-1-1, 14 KOs), as well as expert analysis by Raspanti and Rizwaan Zahid about David Lemieux's future, Oscar De La Hoya's revelation that he knew he was in for a beating the night he faced Manny Pacquiao, a breakdown of the Donaire-Magdaleno fight and the Frampton-Santa Cruz rematch, and more.

 The story of Joseph Diaz Jr's first week in a boxing gym is one of the most-remarkable father/son stories you'll ever  hear, and he told it in colorful detail on the March 6 edition of The Ringside Boxing Show.

 The undefeated 23-year-old, who makes his HBO debut March 26 against Jayson Velez (co-feature of the Andre Ward-Sullivan Barrera show) gave us one of the most-poignant and intelligent interviews we've ever had on the show, covering a wide range of topics.

  A conversation guaranteed to make you a JoJo Diaz fan.

  The JoJo Diaz interview is preceded by a high-spirited segment featuring expert analysts Travis Hartman and John J. Respanti, during which we decide whether Luis Ortiz is (as Max Kellerman believes) "possibly the best heavyweight in the world today" ... and break down Jessie Vargas' impressive TKO of Sadam Ali ... and pass harsh judgment on Antonio Margarito's (hopefully plaster-free) return to boxing.

When he was a boy growing up in the ruthless Brownsville section of Brooklyn, Eddie Mustafa Muhammad (then known as Eddie Lee Gregory) got a couple of valuable pieces of advice from his father:

"You make the money. Don't let the money make you," his dad said.

The other nugget of guidance: "Hands up, chin down, and keep your behind off the canvas."

The legendary light heavyweight, now a revered trainer, joined us Jan. 3 on The Ringside Boxing Show  to discuss his life and career, which included sensational fights with Victor Galindez, Marvin Johnson, Bennie Briscoe, Renaldo Snipes, Michael Spinks, and Matthew Saad Muhammad. As a trainer he has worked with Iran Barkley, Johnny Tapia, Zab Judah, Chad Dawson, and, nowadays, super middlweight belt-holder Badou Jack.

This is a wide-reaching and energitic conversation with a man who ruled the light heavyweight division during a renaissance era for that weight class, before becoming one of the most-respected trainers in the game.

The Eddie Mustafa Muhammad interview is preceded by a conversation with our expert analysts, Travis Hartman and John J. Raspanti, who tell us, among other things, whether they'd take those 33-1 odds currently being offered by a British sportsbook that Lennox Lewis will come out of retirement for a 2016 fight with Anthony Joshua.

Tony 'TNT' Tucker battled Mike Tyson, Lennox Lewis, Buster Douglas, and cocaine during a remarkable and mercurial life.

Tucker tells his whole stunning story in a new autobiography, "Fight the Good Fight: How to Get Back Up When Life Knocks You Down," and gives us a riveting preview on this edition of The Ringside Boxing Show.

Don't miss this candid interview with a colorful heavyweight from the not-so-distant past.

The Tony Tucker interview is preceeded by a conversation with trainer Max Garcia about "Sugar" Shane Mosley (training for a comeback fight), the potential of much-ballyhood Gilberto Ramirez ("a future superstar," Max says), and the expectations for Garcia Boxing's middleweight prospect, Paul Mendez (unbeaten in four years), who fights a hometown bout on Friday in Salinas, California.

And expert analyst John J. Raspanti leads off with his report from ringside at the Oracle Arena, where Andre Ward made his triumphant return on Saturday with a ninth-round TKO of British super middleweight Paul Smith.

Darnell Boone, who is 22-22-4, handed Adonis Stevenson the only loss of his career, a second-round knockout, with a friend working his corner who didn't know a spit bucket from a jump rope.

He's been in the ring with Ward (whom he knocked down), Pascal and Kovalev. 

He's fought 20 undefeated opponents and 10 others with only 1 loss.

In 2005-06, he fought five guys in seven months whose combined record was 131-9. And over a nine-month stretch in 2009-10, he fought five more who together were 55-1.

The first time he ever sparred as an amateur, his sparmate was a 22-0 fighter named Kelly Pavlik.

The guy sitting atop his bucket list has the initials GGG -- and he's willing to drop to 160 to fight him. 

He gets regular critiques -- and perceptive ones, at that -- from his wife.

And at 35, Boone is on a three-fight unbeaten streak.

Don't miss our in-depth interview with this colorful and persistent old-school warrior.

The Darnell Boone interview is preceded by a conversation with rising middleweight Paul Mendez (undefeated for nearly four years) about the good cop/bad cop routine of his trainers, Sam (good) and Max (bad) Garcia.

And we lead off, as always, with a thorough look at the big fights of the past two weeks, and the huge fight coming up on May 2, plus a live report from the West Coast Hall of Fame induction banquet, from expert analysts John J. Raspanti, Rizwaan Zahid, and Travis Hartman.

Springs Toledo earned a masters degree in criminology, but says he never really considered becoming a cop. Too many knew him too well.

The Scribe Laureate of the Sweet Science joined us Sunday, March 29, to own up to his wild childhood, his sparring sessions with Rodney Toney, bad luck with blondes, the mission of the Transnational Boxing Ratings Board, and his outstanding book, "The Gods of War." He also tells us how he came to be named "Springs Toledo." (Spoiler alert: He can't remember).

This outstanding interview is preceded by triple-team analysis by Travis Hartman, Rizwaan Zahid and John J. Raspanti of a menagerie ot hot topics, including Mayweather's vow to give fans their money's worth, Team Pacquiao's psychological warfare, Amir Khan's options, Miguel Cotto's waning ambition, and the impending explosion that is Matthysse-Provodnikov.

A great show, front to back.

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.
