An interview for the ages with all-time great Carlos Palomino

Carlos Palomino's first amateur fight was against an inmate at Chino State Prison. He won the WBC welterweight championship from England's John H. Stracey in front of a sold-out crowd (with 10,000 more waiting outside) at the famed Olympic Auditorium in L.A. He fought one of the greatest fights in history against Armando Muniz, battled Jose Napoles, Hedgemon Lewis, Roberto Duran, Wilfredo Benitez. He was inducted into the World Boxing Hall of Fame, the International Boxing Hall of Fame, the California Boxing Hall of Fame, and the West Coast Boxing Hall of Fame. He became an actor with roles on "Taxi," "The White Shadow," "Star Trek: Voyager" and some of the most-beloved beer commercials of all time.

We share a story-packed hour with this iconic superstar, who reminisces about his life and career, and also talks candidly about the modern-day boxing scene.

Hall of Fame-bound referee has seen some of the greatest fights of all time from an arm's length away, including Corrales-Castillo (perhaps the most-spectacular 10-round fight in history), the Rios-Alvarado rematch, Pacquiao-Marquez III, Pacquiao-Barrera II, Hopkins-Jones II, Mayweather-Marquez, and, most recently, Tyson Fury's upset of Wladimir Klitschko and Vasyl Lomachenko's systematic dismantling of Nicholas Walters.

We picked his brain about being where the blood, sweat, saliva, and snot flies, and the descriptions were epic. Don't miss this conversation with one of the best refs of our generation.

Our Tony Weeks interview is preceeded by our expert analysts, Travis Hartman, Rizwaan Zahid, and John J. Raspanti, who dissect Jorge Linares' domination of Anthony Crolla (and his probably ill-fated desire to take on Mikey or Lomachenko), Andre Ward's level of interest in a Kovalev rematch, Golovkin's disappointing PPV numbers, and more.

   Carlos Palomino dreamed of playing second base for the Dodgers, learned to box in the army, and had his first amateur fight -- an "away game" -- at Chino State Prison.

   The welterweight legend joined us for his third appearance on The Ringside Boxing Show to talk about an occupation he never really liked all that much.

 But thanks to boxing, he not only gets into Hall of Fame parties free, he also gets to sit at one of the best tables.

 Our interview with this boxing legend is preceded by a thorough breakdown of the previous night's Mayweather-Pacquiao fight from expert analysts John J. Raspanti (who was in Las Vegas for the event) and Rizwaan Zahid.
