May-Mac: Can we get back to boxing now?

August 27th, 2017

By Dennis Taylor
The Mayweather-McGregor circus exceeded its (low) expectations. Floyd became an aggressor for the first time in his career. McGregor survived into the 10th round. Pay-Per-View really did exceed Mayweather-Pacquiao (even if 5,000 seats were empty at T-Mobile Arena.
Our expert analysts, Travis Hartman, Rizwaan Zahid and John J. Raspanti unpack the positives and negatives of what somehow became the biggest event of the year in combat sports. They also talk about Gervonta Davis losing his world title on the scales, review Miguel Cotto's slugfest victory over Yoshihiro Kamegai, and breathe a sigh of relief that we can all look forward to Canelo-Golovkin.
That all sets the stage for British correspondent Paul McLaughlin, who updates us on the UK boxing scene, and our extraordinary boxing historian, Christopher James Shelton, who gives us an in-depth view at the life and legend of America's first boxing superstar, John L. Sullivan.

Remembering Ali: An all-encompassing eulogy

June 5th, 2016

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.

George Foreman: Good times, hard times, awakenings

April 5th, 2016

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.

Big, bad, unbeaten: Heavyweights you need to know

July 19th, 2015

Boxing fans already know about Deontay Wilder, the Fury cousins, and maybe Anthony Joshua and Joseph Parker  -- unbeaten predators pursuing Wladimir Klitscko's throne as King of the Jungle. But, believe it or not, there are at least 20 formidable heavyweights out there who are still unbeaten ... and some have superstar potential.
.
Pod Index founder/WBA consultant Matt Podgorski and Bleacher Report boxing writer Brian Mazique joined us Sunday for a mind-blowing seminar on the up-and-comers of boxing's glamour division -- guys like Erkan Teper, Lucas Browne, Gary Cornish and (pay attention now) Jarrell Miller.

This fascinating and educational segment is preceded by our expert analysts, Rizwaan Zahid and John J. Raspanti, who talk up the little guys -- Frampton, Mares, Santa Cruz, Quigg, Donaire m among others, chew the fat about the chubster known as Chavez Jr., cast a suspicious eye upon those Mayweather-Berto rumors, and back away from any predictions if Floyd ever steps into an octogon with Ronda Rousey.

Tony ‘TNT’ Tucker on getting back up

June 21st, 2015

Tony 'TNT' Tucker battled Mike Tyson, Lennox Lewis, Buster Douglas, and cocaine during a remarkable and mercurial life.

Tucker tells his whole stunning story in a new autobiography, "Fight the Good Fight: How to Get Back Up When Life Knocks You Down," and gives us a riveting preview on this edition of The Ringside Boxing Show.

Don't miss this candid interview with a colorful heavyweight from the not-so-distant past.

The Tony Tucker interview is preceeded by a conversation with trainer Max Garcia about "Sugar" Shane Mosley (training for a comeback fight), the potential of much-ballyhood Gilberto Ramirez ("a future superstar," Max says), and the expectations for Garcia Boxing's middleweight prospect, Paul Mendez (unbeaten in four years), who fights a hometown bout on Friday in Salinas, California.

And expert analyst John J. Raspanti leads off with his report from ringside at the Oracle Arena, where Andre Ward made his triumphant return on Saturday with a ninth-round TKO of British super middleweight Paul Smith.

Lou Savarese: Fighter, actor, promoter, comedian

November 9th, 2014

The native New Yorker was a heavyweight contender who won his first 36 fights, most by knockout, and fought the likes of Evander Holyfield, Mike Tyson and George Foreman.

He's an actor whose credits include The Sopranos, Damages, and ESPN's documentary version of 'Cinderella Man,' in which he portrayed Max Baer.

And he's the CEO of Houston-based Savarese Promotions, with a Nov. 21 show to hype. This was a lively, colorful interview -- not to be missed.

The Lou Savarese interview is preceded by expert analysts Travis Hartman and John J. Raspanti, and their breakdown of Kovalev's dominance of Hopkins and Sadam Ali's destruction of Carlos Abregu.

‘Rumble in the Jungle’ special

November 2nd, 2014

This show was recorded 40 years and 3 days after Muhammad Ali, an 8-1 betting dog,  knocked out undefeated heavyweight king George Foreman in the eighth round of "The Rumble in the Jungle" in Zaire, South Africa.

Expert analyst John J. Raspanti and host Dennis Taylor reminisce about one of the most stunning events in the annals of sports in this special edition of The Ringside Boxing Show, which features a classic interview with Dr. Ferdie Pacheco -- Ali's personal physician -- during the second half of the program.
