Mark Breland watched Ali-Frazier I at Madison Square Garden as a 7-year-old Brooklynite, decided he wanted to be a fighter, too, and evolved into perhaps the greatest amateur in U.S. history.
The 6-foot-2 welterweight won the New York Golden Gloves five times, two national titles, a world amateur champ, and the Olympic gold medal during a career when he went 110-1. (Pernell Whitaker lost the same day.)
We spoke in-depth to Breland about training Deontay Wilder, winning two WBA welterweight titles as a pro, and acquiring a taste for catfish and fried okra as a part-time resident of Alabama and South Carolina.

Our interview with Mark Breland is preceded by a surprisingly lively conversation with expert analysts Travis Hartman (hung over from his birthday celebration), Rizwaan Zahid (fighting off laryngitis), and John J. Raspanti (interrupting a hot date) about Sen. Pacquiao's possible return, Canelo's lightweight excuse for not facing GGG this year, Crawford-Postol, Mikey's comeback, and more.

 Expert analysts Rizwaan Zahid and John J. Raspanti (subbing again this week for Travis Hartman) break down a sensational weekend of boxing, highlighted by the Battle of Brooklyn between Paulie Malignaggi and Zab Judah. Has Malignaggi found a "Fountain of Youth?" Does Judah (5 world titles, 2 weight divisions, 18 years of relevance) belong in the Hall of Fame? They also reconstruct Shawn Porter's remarkable win over Devon Alexander, those talented (but boring?) Cubans, and other topics.

  Max Garcia then gives us a progress report on his undefeated light welterweight prospect, Darwin Price, a former All-America miler at Grambling, and his hard-hitting middleweight Paul Mendez.

  This is the first half of our Dec. 8, 2013 show, featuring a rare interview with two-time world champion Marlon Starling (never down in 52 fights), conquerer of Lloyd Honeyghan, Simon Brown, and Mark Breland.

 Marlon Starling was a two-time welterweight champion during an era when the 147-pound division was loaded. The original "Magic Man" fought Donald Curry (twice), Floyd Mayweather Sr. (twice), Mark Breland (twice), Johnny Bumphus, Lloyd Honeyghan, Maurice Blocker and Michael Nunn in a 52-fight career -- and was never knocked down.
  The Hartford, Conn. native joined us on the Dec. 8, 2013 edition of The Ringside Boxing Show for a lively interview that was much too short.
