Keith Thurman could pave his path to a first-ballot election into the International Hall of Fame by taking the "0" away from Errol Spence and Terence Crawford, the way he spoiled the perfect record of Danny Garcia. But it's not that easy, says the undefeated WBA and WBC welterweight champion of the world, who goes on to explain why facilitating that kind of showdown can be complicated business.
Thurman granted us a broad, in-depth interview on this edition of The Ringside Boxing Show, covering multiple topics, including his recent wedding, the painstaking process of recovering from elbow surgery, and how the talent-laden welterweight division compares to the era of "The Four Kings" -- Leonard, Hearns, Duran, Hagler (and don't forget Benitez).
This exceptional interview -- a are glimpse into the inside world of Keith "One Time" Thurman -- is preceded by British correspondent Paul McLaughlin's update on the UK boxing world, and expert analysts Travis Hartman, Rizwaan Zahid and John J. Raspanti, who unpack Miguel Cotto's surprising loss to Sadam Ali in his farewell fight, and look ahead to Saturday's Lomachenko-Rigondeaux showdown.
Dennis Taylor is host of The Ringside Boxing Show, editor/publisher of www.ringsideboxingshow.com, and co-author (with John J. Raspanti) of the West Coast Boxing Hall of Fame's 2017 Book of the Year, "Intimate Warfare: The True Story of the Arturo Gatti and Micky Ward Boxing Trilogy," currently on Amazon's Bestsellers list.

In addition to raising the kind of kid any parent would be proud to claim -- as a single father -- Kenny Porter evolved into a world-class trainer whose main charge is that very same kid.

Porter joined us on The Ringside Boxing Show to talk about Shawn's March 12 WBA welterweight title bout against undefeated Keith Thurman, tell amazing tales about his son's best high school football games, and give us the inside story of that Pacquiao sparring misadventure a few years back.

We also spend a few minutes with Chicago heavyweight Mike Mollo, who has made some money pounding on Polish people -- Andrew Galota, Art Binkowski, and Artur Szpilka (twice) -- and is headed to Poland to fight undefeated Krysztof Zimnoch on Feb. 12.

The Mollo and Porter interviews are preceded by commentary from our expert analysts, Rizwaan Zahid and John J. Raspanti, who dissect Danny Garcia's win over Robert Guerrero, psychoanalyze their volatile trainer/dads, and discuss a Mexican columnist's claim that Julio Cesar Chavez Sr. has been laundering money for drug cartels.

A lively edition of The Ringside Boxing Show, front to back.

How good is the official boxing historian of The Ringside Boxing Show? Christopher James Shelton is being recruited by The Smithsonian Institute to help validate the history of African-American boxing in the 1800s. Talk about street cred.

The always-fascinating Shelton regaled us again Oct. 11, 2015 to describe what "The Sweet Science" looked like in the U.S. in the 19th century, a theme of his newest book, "American Slave-Boxer Sylvie Dubois," available now at Amazon.com.

Our interview with Christopher Shelton is preceded by our expert analysts, Travis Hartman, Rizwaan Zahid and John J. Raspanti to evaluate a spectacular lineup of upcoming fights, including Golovkin-Lemeiux, Jacobs-Quillin, and Porter-Thurman, and discuss "The Bleeder," a Hollywood movie that will star Liev Schreiber as Chuck Wepner.

Keith Thuman (23-0, 21 KOs) is the mandatory challenger for Floyd Mayweather's WBA welterweight title belt, but few will be surprised if "Money" doesn't dump the strap rather than face "One Time."

The Clearwater, Florida native joined us Sunday to talk boxing and -- no kidding -- philosophy in a remarkable and memorable conversation on The Ringside Boxing Show.

The Thurman interview is preceded by insight from Travis Hartman and John J. Raspanti on the passing of Dan Goossen, the Ward-Goossen relationship, the startling demise of Chad Dawson, and more.
