Few people can talk boxing and boxing history with the authority of Doug Fischer (writer for The Ring magazine and RingTV.com) and Dave Schwartz (Southern California boxing aficionado since the 1950s), who joined us for an all-encompassing conversation on everything from how Golovkin compares to the all-time greats to a look back at the heyday of the Olympic Auditorium.

This lively and wide-reaching conversation is preceded by an interview with boxing trainer Max Garcia (whose blue-chip prospect, Ruben Villa IV, improved to 6-0 on Friday), and a breakdown of a sensational fight weekend by expert analysts Rizwaan Zahid and John J. Raspanti.

You'll learn plenty from this one, guaranteed.

The Don George interview is preceded by stellar analysis by Rizwaan Zahid and John J. Raspanti of Kovalev-Caparello, Kovalev-Hopkins, Rios-Chaves, and the decisions of ref Vic Drakulich.

  John J. Raspanti of doghouseboxing.com breaks down Pascal's stunningly lopsided win over Bute, analyses Mike Perez's lackluster draw with Carlos Takam, considers why Canadian boxing rings are the same color as ice-hockey rinks, and more.

  Don George then joins us for a quick but lively conversation about his wild youth (which landed him in notorious Cook County Jail for a year) and his sometimes spectacular, other times not kind of career. "The Bomb" is a big personality and he pulls no punches. A must listen interview.

  This is the first half of our Jan. 19, 2014 show featuring an in-depth interview with "The Filipino Flash," Nonito Donaire, after the commercial break.
