In his up-and-coming years, Kermit Cintron was regarded as one of the hardest-hitting welterweights in the world, and that pop was a major factor in a 24-0 start that included 22 knockouts.
He lost his "0" by TKO to Antonio Margarito -- one of two KO losses to the Mexican, who not long afterward was caught plastering his hand wraps before a fight with Shane Mosley.
By the time he fought Margarito the first time, Cintron already was fighting with a badly injured right hand, a problem that has plagued him throughout his career.
Nine years and two surgeries later, Cintron is, at last, pain-free. He returned from a layoff of more than two years on May 6, winning a six-round decision, and has designs on re-establishing himself as a player in the welterweight and super welterweight divisions.
We had a terrific, in-depth conversation with the 36-year-old father of three on the May 22 edition of The Ringside Boxing Show.

Our conversation with Kermit Cintron is preceded by a breakdown of the weekend action by expert analysts Rizwaan Zahid and John J. Raspanti, who review the history-making performance of the Charlo Brothers, Erislandy Lara's victory over Vanes Martirosyan, and unpack Canelo Alvarez's reluctance to face Gennady Golovkin in 2016.

Former New York Daily News staff writer Mark Kriegel tells this riveting tale in a sensational new book, "The Good Son: The Life of Ray 'Boom Boom' Mancini," a masterpiece that seems destined to become his third book to reach the New York Times Bestseller list.

 The author of "Pistol: The Life of Pete Maravich" and "Namath: A Biography" takes readers down the amazing road that was Mancini's life and career, including the idolization of his father, once a No. 1-ranked lightweight contender himself until a war injury ended his career.

 Kriegel joined us on the Sept. 16, 2012 edition of The Ringside Boxing Show to discuss a fighter who, in the 1980s, became a towering example of The American Dream.
