The world's most-diligent boxing historian has researched boxers from ancient Greece, boxers who walked the earth at the same time as Christ, boxers who were refereed by famous Wild West gunslingers, a female slave/boxer, all the way up to modern-day fighters.

Now Christopher James Shelton has written a memoir about his life and, of course, boxing, rife with all of the aforementioned true stories.

We spoke at length with the author about "My Life Before Death: A Boxing HIstorian Memoir," a brand-new release available at Amazon.com. Check it out here: https://www.amazon.com/Before-DEATH-boxing-historian-memoir-ebook/dp/B06WWRKNNY/ref=sr_1_4?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1489973598&sr=1-4&refinements=p_n_publication_date%3A1250227011

Our conversation with Chris Shelton is preceded by a thorough unpacking of the Golovkin-Jacobs and Chocolatito-Rungvisai fights by our expert analysts, Travis Hartman, Rizwaan Zahid and John J. Raspanti.

Believe it or not, prizefighting was a popular sport 3,000 years ago in the Middle East, and, in fact, Jesus Christ, himself, most likely was as familiar with the name of the most-famous boxer of his era as most of us are today with names like Pacquiao, Mayweather, even Ali.

This bit of boxing history could only have been recovered by Christopher James Shelton, the world's most-eclectic boxing historian.

Chris regaled us on the Aug. 24, 2014 show with colorful and amazing tales of what "The Sweet Science" looked like, way back to the days before the birth of Christ, including the aura and mythology that often surrounded the champions of the day. (Spoiler alert: One pugilist was believed to have transformed himself into a wolf for nine years ... another fought and defeated a "ghost.")

As always, Christopher Shelton is on fire during this remarkable 30-minute conversation.

Our interview with Chris is preceded by the insight of our expert analysts, Rizwaan Zahid and John J. Raspanti, who evaluate the impact of Austin Trout's victory, Mike Jones' stunning loss, 50 Cent's relentless taunting of Floyd Mayweather, JayZ's surprising kneecapping of Golden Boy and Top Rank in a recent purse bid, and more.
