May 7th, 2020

Ashton "H20" Sylve isn't a regular 16 year old. He's not just a boxing prospect, he is THE boxing prospect. Don't confuse the young man's humbleness and quietness for a lack of confidence. A quick look at his Instagram shows why he's being called the next Floyd Mayweather. A 10X National 2X International Champion, Sylve plans to be around for a long time.

Oh, and did we mention his uncle is Snoop Dogg?

Byrd-brain scorecard mars a memorable fight … plus Randy Shields

September 17th, 2017

The Canelo-Golovkin collision lived up to it’s substantial hype, diminished only by judge Adelaide Byrd’s weird scorecard, which awarded 10 of the 12 rounds to Canelo in a split-draw. Our expert analysts, Travis Hartman, Rizwaan Zahid and John J. Raspanti, dissect a scintillating fight, psychoanalyze Byrd’s strange affection for Canelo, and wonder aloud if there’s a better place for a rematch than Canelo-infatuated Las Vegas.

We also get another report from the UK from British correspondent Paul McLaughlin, and we have an in-depth conversation with West Coast boxing legend Randy Shields, who went to war with Sugar Ray Leonard, Thomas Hearns, Pipino Cuevas, Wilfredo Benitez, Pete Ranzany, Johnny Bumphus, and Milton McCrory during a renaissance era of the welterweight division. Shields, who will be inducted into the West Coast Boxing Hall of Fame, also worked as a celebrity bodyguard, an actor, and a Hollywood screenwriter.

Dennis Taylor is host of The Ringside Boxing Show, editor/publisher of www.ringsideboxingshow.com, and co-author (with John J. Raspanti) of “Intimate Warfare: The True Story of the Arturo Gatti and Micky Ward Boxing Trilogy,” currently on Amazon’s Bestsellers list.

Floyd and Manny: Farce times two?

June 25th, 2017

What do they take us for? Manny Pacquiao and Freddie Roach are trying to convince us that Australian Jeff Horn (16-0-1, no A-list opponents) is an inspiring threat to the future Hall of Famer.

Meanwhile, Colin McGregor's promoter, UFC czar Dana White, says his fighter (0-0) is no joking matter for Floyd Mayweather (49-0).

Our expert analysts, Travis Hartman and John J. Raspanti, unpack both match-ups, psychoanalyze supporters of the underdogs, and also tell us what to expect from Broner vs. Mikey, and speculate about a possible Rigondeaux-Lomachenko collision.

This wide-reaching discussion is followed by an eye-opening interview with Adrian Clark, a 31-year-old boxing manager/agent (and author of Protect Yourself At All Times) who is on a quest to convince fighters that people who want 33 percent of their purses are ripping them off in a very big way.

This is a conversation guaranteed to enlighten fighters, managers, promoters and fans of "The Sweet Science."

Canelo vs. Chavez Jr: What happened and why?

May 7th, 2017

Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. had everything to gain against Canelo Alvarez -- most of all, a chance to make the boxing public (especially Mexican fans) forgive him for past missteps. He's been lazy, uncommitted, often lackadaisical in the gym (even smoking dope in at least one training camp). He's lacked discipline with his diet, hasn't work well with with a Who's Who of boxing trainers, and he has failed to live up to the (unfair?) expectations of a bigger-than-life family name.

A leave-it-in-the-ring effort against Canelo, win or lose, would have clensed him forever. Instead, he turned in one of the worst performances of his career when the stakes were highest and his legacy was on the line.

Boxing experts Travis Hartman, Rizwaan Zahid, and John J. Raspanti review the fight, break down what happened, and try to explain how and why Chavez left his "A Game" in the gym. Their insightful explanations and analysis might surprise you.

The second half of our show is another treat as we replay a classic interview we did with 1950s boxing legend Tony DeMarco, a Hall of Famer who fought classic, toe-to-toe fights with Carmen Basilio, Johnny Saxton, Gasper Ortega, Don Jordan, and other greats from the "Golden Age of Boxing."

 

 

 

 

The Canelo Conundrum: Do they really want Golovkin?

April 2nd, 2017

Canelo Alvarez and his promoter, Oscar De La Hoya, have become remarkably adroit at stacking barriers in the road to a long-awaited superfight with Gennady Golovkin -- the latest being the  claim (based on somewhat-valid evidence: only 177,000 recent PPV buys for the Jacobs fight) that the public doesn't care much about Golovkin.

On the other hand, most observers of the Sweet Science seem to agree that no fight seems as mouthwatering right now as Canelo-GGG ... so what's the deal? Our expert analysts discuss the possibility that De La Hoya and Canelo are waiting for Golovkin to age a bit more -- maybe until his flesh is decomposing -- before risking Golden Boy's meal ticket in a fight Golovkin would be favored to win.

We also talk about Canelo's more-immediate concern -- the upcoming clash with an unusually motivated Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. -- plus the youth-versus-experience showdown between Joshua and Klitschko, and, finally, who deserves to be No. 1 on the Pound 4 Pound list.

This rousing discussion sets the stage for our memorable and revealing conversation with Dicky Eklund (Micky Ward's brother and co-inspiration for "The Fighter.")

Mikey Garcia: Bigger, badder, hungier than before

July 10th, 2016

Mikey Garcia says 2 1/2 years in mothballs -- the result of a contract dispute with Top Rank --  have left him bigger, stronger and hungrier
as he prepares to return to the ring on July 30 against former world champ Elio Rojas in Brooklyn.

He'll bring a 34-0 record, with 28 KOs, into Barclays Arena, where, as a promotional free agent, he knows there's a lot at stake. But Garcia expects to impress, with minimal ring rust, and get back in the express lane toward a spot in the International Boxing Hall of Fame.

Our 30-minute interview with Mike Garcia is preceded by a fiery debate by expert analysts Travis Hartman, Rizwaan Zahid, and John J. Raspanti over the merits of the stunning Golovkin-Brook match-up.

A lively, quick-moving show, wall-to-wall.
