The astonishing career of Hall-of-Fame boxing publicist Bill Caplan dates back to the 1960s, and includes the time he laid down in front of Lupe Pintor's station wagon to keep him from leaving a press conference, an incident at the Venezuelan airport where he and George Foreman faced down machine-gun wielding soldiers, his trip to Zaire for "The Rumble in the Jungle," and his memorable confrontation with gangster Blinky Palermo of "Murder Inc." And that's just a little part of it.

Our conversation with Caplan happened in 2012, and we took the opportunity to replay it Sunday after missing connections with our scheduled guest, Paul "The Punisher" Williams.

This sensational interview with a master storyteller is preceded by expert analysts Travis Hartman, Rizwaan Zahid and John J. Raspanti, who unpack one of the best fight weekends in recent memory, topped by the Thurman-Porter spectacular.

Muhammad Ali not only was the greatest heavyweight fighter of all time, he was a crusader for the oppressed, a transcendental entertainer, and the conscience of a nation.

We devoted our full hour to remembering Ali, who died Friday, with insight from expert analysts Travis Hartman, Rizwaan Zahid and John J. Raspanti, boxing historian Christopher James Shelton, and host Dennis Taylor.

The memories, the stories, and the opinions are wall-to-wall in this eulogy of one of the best-known people in history. RIP, Champ.

The sixth-greatest heavyweight in boxing history (Ring Magazine), George Foreman, joined us Sunday for a spectacular retrospective on a big, amazing life.

Foreman told us what it was like to face machine guns at a Venezuelan airport when he tried to leave after the Norton fight, and also talked about ... reading to Sonny Liston ... the lightning combination Ali used to put him down in Zaire ... knocking out undefeated world champions Joe Frazier and Michael Moorer 21 years apart .. what it was like to watch his daughter box ...the Svengali talents of Angelo Dundee ... the come-to-Jesus moment that turned him from puncher to preacher after the Jimmy Young loss ... and (believe it or not) much, much more.

This was a pretty special conversation with a member of boxing's Mount Olympus.

The George Foreman interview is preceded by a thorough breakdown of the Pacquiao-Bradley weekend by expert analysts Travis Hartman, Rizwaan Zahid and John J. Raspanti.

On our most-recent edition of The Ringside Boxing Show, expert analysts John J. Raspanti and Rizwaan Zahid discuss a stroke of brilliance by 50 Cent -- (1) file for bankruptcy, (2) Instagram yourself rolling in a big pile of money, and (3) get your butt summoned to explain yourself to the bankruptcy judge -- and also religious rant by Manny Pacquiao, who managed to insult all gays and the entire animal kingdom with the same statement. We also break down Frampton vs. Quigg, Broner-Theophane, Joshua-Martin, and the rumor that Miguel Cotto will fight Ruslan Provodnikov.

This is the first half of a show in which we replay a classic interview with late, great light heavyweight Bob Foster, one of our best ever.
