The best super flyweight showcase in recent boxing history lived up to its hype, with Juan Francisco Estrada squeaking out a one-point decision over Carlos Cuadras, a brutal stoppage by “The Monster,” and Sisraket Sor Rungisai’s stunning lights-out KO of Chocolatito. Our expert analysts, Travis Hartman, Rizwaan Zahid, and John J. Raspanti unwrap the whole package.
We also introduce you to “Dracula” — 15-time national amateur champion Ruben Villa IV — an undefeated 20-year-old who figures to make a major splash in the featherweight division.
And we get another report from the exciting boxing scene in the United Kingdom from our British correspondent, Paul McLaughlin.
All of that is a warmup to one of the best interviews we’ve ever had on The Ringside Boxing Show, a one-hour conversation with Grammy- and Golden Globe-nominated singer/songwriter Frank Stallone — Sly’s younger brother — who also turns out to be an astonishing boxing historian.
Stallone regales us with amazing stories from the entertainment industry, the boxing world, and the process of growing up with his big brother in boxing-rich Philadelphia.

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 vs. Micky Ward Boxing Trilogy,” currently on Amazon’s Bestsellers list.

London native Frank Buglioni first tugged on a pair of boxing gloves at age 12, got roughed up in sparring, and has been smitten with the sport ever since.

He won two national championships and the Commonwealth Games as an amateur, and has captured the Euro super middleweight and British light heavyweight championships as a pro.

He's only suffered two setbacks, but says he came away from both losses with a higher education that served him later. His 2016 win over Hosea Burton, a victory, was regarded by many as a Fight of the Year candidate.

This is a fascinating conversation with an articulate Brit with plans to make waves on the international stage.

Our interview with Frank Buglioni is preceded by a thorough breakdown by Raspanti, Travis Hartman and Rizwaan Zahid on multiple subjects, including Saturday's upcoming superfight between Golovkin and Jacobs, what's next for Pacquiao now that the Amir Khan fight is up in smoke, the stunning announcement of a $50 million, two-division World Boxing Super Series tournament, Tyson Fury's 350-pound body as he resumes training, and the future of David Lemieux after sending Curtis Stevens out of the arena asleep on a gurney over the weekend.
