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."

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.
