When he remembers his razor-thin losses to Keith Thurman and Kell Brook, former IBF welterweight champ Shawn Porter says the only rounds he remembers are the close ones -- and he dwells on what he might have done to swing them the other way.

With a couple of well-timed punches or flurries, Porter might still be an undefeated world champion at this point, rather than a guy waiting for another shot at glory.

The 29-year-old joined us Sunday, alongside his father/trainer, Kenny Porter, for an in-depth discussion about the talent-stacked 147-pound weight division, a conversation rife with speculation about Thurman, Brook, Jeff Horn, Manny Pacquiao, Danny Garcia, and Terence Crawford.

They're ready to take on any of the above in their quest to exit the sport at the top of the heap.

Our interview with the Porters is preceded by our brand-new segment featuring British boxing oracle Paul McLaughlin, who unpacks part of the fascinating boxing scene in the United Kingdom in his lively, 4-minute segment. And we lead off, as always, with expert analysts Rizwaan Zahid and John J. Raspanti, who weigh in on the Mayweather-McGregor phenomenon/farce, among other topics.

Front to back, this is an informative and action-packed episode.

Dennis Taylor is host of The Ringside Boxing Show, editor/publisher of www.ringsideboxingshow.com, and co-author (with John J. Raspanti) of "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.
