Chuck Wepner, 'The Bayonne Bleeder,' inspired Sylvester Stallone to create 'Rocky' when he knocked down Muhammad Ali in their 1975 fight.

His colorful life story is now a new feature film, 'Chuck,' opening in theaters May 5 starring Liev Schreiber in the title role.

We interviewed both Chuck Wepner and Liev Schreiber ('Ray Donovan,' 'Wolverine') on our most recent Ringside Boxing Show.

This spectacular doubleheader interview is preceded by our expert analysts, Travis Hartman, Rizwaan Zahid, and John J. Raspanti, who review Shawn Porter's mauling conquest of Andre Berto, give us the inside scoop on the sensational Charlo twins, discuss Tyson Fury's offer to provide stud services to any woman willing to pay $64,000 (US), speculate whether Adrien Broner will make it to age 30 without going to jail, and tell us who's going to win the Klitschko-Joshua fight.

Brin-Jonathan Butler was 20 when he became enamored with Cuba and ventured over there to have a look for himself. He wandered into a boxing gym where, standing in the shadows, he found a disgraced two-time Olympic champion, Guillermo Rigondeaux, a leper on the island after a failed attempt to defect.

What sprang from that chance meeting was a documentary (directed by Butler) and a biography (written by Butler), not to mention well-earned street cred as an authority on the topic of Cuban boxing.

The New York City journalist joined us on the Aug. 31, 2014 show to paint a vivid picture of Cuban culture and a strange and remarkable boxing world.

Just 23 years old, unbeaten, world-ranked welterweight Shawn Porter already is a familiar face to boxing fans, having fought half of his 18 professional fights on either ESPN or ShoBox. Porter (18-0, 13 KOs) also has jacked up his profile and his skill level as a favorite sparring partner of Manny Pacquiao in the champ's three most-recent training camps. A two-time national champ and Golden Gloves world champion, "Showtime" Shawn was one of the best amateur fighters of his era at 165 pounds. Now, as a pro, he's emerging as a force at 147. Enjoy our in-depth interview with a compelling personality and, quite possibly, a future superstar in the sport, from our April 17, 2011 edition of The Ringside Boxing Show.
