 The first gold medal-winner on the greatest U.S. Olympic boxing team of all time was Leo Randolph, a 112-pound flyweight who was 18 years old (still the youngest gold medalist in Olympic boxing history) and still in high school.
  Randolph was followed to the podium by fellow gold medalists Howard Davis, Ray Leonard, and Michael and Leon Spinks.
  Randolph skipped the closing ceremonies to be home in time for church the following morning, then waited two years to turn pro -- something he never intended to do.
  In the pro ranks he won a world championship, lost it in his first title defense, and, at just 22, became the youngest retired world champ in history.
  Leo Randolph joined us for an outstanding, in-depth interview on the Dec.. 1, 2013 edition of The Ringside Boxing Show.

 In the annals of boxing history, Aaron "The Hawk" Pryor ranks among the greatest 140-pound fighters ever, capturing his title from the legendary "Kid Pambele," Antonio Cervantes, then defending it 11 times, during which he KO'd Alexis Arguello twice.

 Pryor's personal story is even more compelling. He was addicted to crack, he was shot twice, he went to prison, and overcame all of that to straighten out his life and become an ordained deacon in his Baptist church.

 Enjoy this astonishing conversation with a legendary Hall of Fame boxer and remarkable personality.

 In 1976, in an Olympics that included Mike McCallum, Colin Jones, Leon and Michael Spinks, John Tate, and Sugar Ray Leonard, the Outstanding Boxer award went to Howard Davis Jr., who won the gold medal at lightweight only days after his mother had died of a heart attack. Davis says he heard the voice of his mother repeatedly as he fought his way to glory in Montreal.

 This is an interview you don't want to miss from May 8, 2011 -- ironically, Mother's Day.
