Chuck Wepner, 'The Bayonne Bleeder,' inspired Sylvester Stallone to create 'Rocky' when he knocked down Muhammad Ali in their 1975 fight.

His colorful life story is now a new feature film, 'Chuck,' opening in theaters May 5 starring Liev Schreiber in the title role.

We interviewed both Chuck Wepner and Liev Schreiber ('Ray Donovan,' 'Wolverine') on our most recent Ringside Boxing Show.

This spectacular doubleheader interview is preceded by our expert analysts, Travis Hartman, Rizwaan Zahid, and John J. Raspanti, who review Shawn Porter's mauling conquest of Andre Berto, give us the inside scoop on the sensational Charlo twins, discuss Tyson Fury's offer to provide stud services to any woman willing to pay $64,000 (US), speculate whether Adrien Broner will make it to age 30 without going to jail, and tell us who's going to win the Klitschko-Joshua fight.

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 world's most-unique boxing historian, Christopher James Shelton, paints a fascinating factual portrait of the boxing history of Tombstone, Arizona and the Wild West, where Wyatt Earp, Doc Holiday, and a future sportswriter named Bat Masterson were slinging guns, straddling both sides of the law, and ushering the Sweet Science through the 1880s and '90s.

The Wild West boxing history segment is preceded by our expert analysts, Travis Hartman, Rizwaan Zahid and John J. Raspanti, who take a peek into the strange minds of Adrien Broner, Shannon Briggs, Mike Alvarado and Kelly Pavlik, applaud the comeback of fighter-turned-trainer Paul "The Punisher" Williams, and tell us whether Teddy Atlas will be a difference-maker in Pacquiao Bradley, among other topics.

The Ringside Boxing Show can be heard live every Sunday at www.radiomonterey.com at 4 p.m. Pacific, 5 Mountain, 6 Central, 7 Eastern.
