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."

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.

As an ordained minister, Richard Steele presided over the funerals of Eddie Futch and Diego Corrales. He was a U.S. Marine Corps teammate of Ken Norton (and, like Norton, trined under Futch). As a Hall of Fame referee, he officiated many of the greatest fights in boxing history, including Hagler-Hearns, Hagler-Leonard, Arguello-Pryor, and, of course, Julio Cesar Chavez vs. Meldrick Taylor (which Steele infamously stopped 2 seconds before the bell with Chavez - 68-0 -- losing on two scorecards.)

Our time with this International Boxing Hall of Famer was far too short, but Steele used every minute to regale us with a sensational peek into boxing's inner sanctum. Don't miss this remarkable conversation with a bona fide boxing legend.

The Richard Steele interview is preceded by insight from analysts Travis Hartman, Rizwaan Zahid and John J. Raspanti into Roy Jones Jr's new listing on the Ukraine's "Enemies of State" list, the 130,000 cigarettes Mayorga has smoked since the first Mosley fight, the sanity of betting on Lemieux (a 16-1 underdog) to beat Golovkin, and the epic carnage that could be Rios-Provodnikov.

The world's most-meticulous boxing researcher, Christopher James Shelton, was our featured guest Oct. 26 to discuss the wild and often-frigid boxing world that was 1880s Canada, a time and place where boxing matches turned into actual fistfights, and fighters sometimes wore jackets in the ring -- which came in handy when (no kidding) one fighter knocked another through a window.

This was a jam-packed show that opens with expert breakdowns of big upcoming fights (Hopkins-Kovalev, Khan-Alexander & more) by Rizwaan Zahid and John J. Raspanti.

Then exciting middleweight Paul Mendez joins us to describe life as Gennady Golovkin's sparring partner, and update us on his next fight.

A full and fast-moving show!

Boxing's 2011 "Trainer of the Year" joined us to discuss a stable that includes Andre Ward, Amir Khan, Andre Berto and Alfredo Angulo, and offers fascinating takes on the passing of Dan Goossen, the force of nature that is Gennady Golovkin, Amir Khan's December plans, and whether he'd like to train boxers until he's old and grey, like Ray Arcel, Eddie Futch and Angelo Dundee.

The Virgil Hunter inverview is preceded by an enthusiastic analysis of the Golovkin-Rubio/Walters-Donaire doubleheader by Travis Hartman, Rizwaan Zahid and John J. Raspanti.

  Harvey Dock ranks among the best amateur boxers in the history of his home state, where he was New Jersey's 1994 "Fighter of the Year" and has been enshrined in the New Jersey Boxing Hall of Fame.
  He opted to stay in the sport as a professional referee, not a boxer, and in 2013 emerged as one of the go-to refs for big fights on the East Coast.
  We had a fun and enlightening conversation with Dock on the Nov. 24 edition of The Ringside Boxing Show.

The force of nature that is Gennady Golovkin was a big part of the conversation during the first half of our June 30, 2013 show, as John J. Raspanti sits in for Travis Hartman (still at Wimbledon) to bounce off expert analyst Rizwaan Zahid, "Irish" Joe O'Rourke, and Dennis Taylor.

Golovkin also is front and center in a chat with trainer Max Garcia, whose rising middlweight, Paul Mendez, was a Golovkin sparring partner.

This is the first half of our first "Rivals" show, which you'll hear after the midshow commercial break.
