Author Jeffrey Sussman trained as a 12-year-old at Stillman's Gym, met Rocky Graziano, who was walking his toy poodle, and wrote a bestselling book about two of the great Jewish boxing heroes. "Max Baer and Barney Ross: Jewish Heroes of Boxing," is the story of two exceptionally colorful fighters.

Baer knocked out Max Schmeling long before Joe Louis did it. He had a remarkable Hollywood career, both on the Silver Screen and in the beds of a long line of actresses, including Greta Garbo and Jean Harlow.

Ross was a teenage chum of Jack Ruby (who later killed Lee Harvey Oswald) when they were both employees of Chicago gangster Al Capone. He became the first boxer ever to win titles at three weights. He single-handedly killed almost two dozen Japanese soldiers in an all-night battle at Guadalcanal.

This outstanding interview with a terrific story teller is preceded by our weekly discussion with expect analysts Travis Hartman, Rizwaan Zahid and John J. Raspanti, who tell us what Deontay Wilder means in today's heavyweight division, where Eleider Alvarez stands as a light heavyweight, whether Chavez Jr. and Canelo were nuts to make a winner-take-all bet on their fight, and what's going to happen in Angel Garcia's showdown with NYSAC in his fight to work Danny's corner against Keith Thurman.

A great show!

The last time Abel Sanchez was on The Ringside Boxing Show, he told us Gennady Golovkin -- a rising star at the time -- was already the whole package, and the best fighter he'd ever worked with. (This, from the guy who trained Hall of Famer Terry Norris.)

Nowadays Golovkin is as much myth as man, but Sanchez says he's still a humble person ... and the funniest guy in the gym.

This insightful conversation is preceded by an update from Paul Mendez's trainer, Sam Garcia, on an upcoming fight for "El Gallo Negro." And we lead off, as always, with expert analysts Rizwaan Zahid and John J. Raspanti to talk about the beheading of James Kirkland, Cotto-Canelo, and a little bit of Pacquiao.

   Carlos Palomino dreamed of playing second base for the Dodgers, learned to box in the army, and had his first amateur fight -- an "away game" -- at Chino State Prison.

   The welterweight legend joined us for his third appearance on The Ringside Boxing Show to talk about an occupation he never really liked all that much.

 But thanks to boxing, he not only gets into Hall of Fame parties free, he also gets to sit at one of the best tables.

 Our interview with this boxing legend is preceded by a thorough breakdown of the previous night's Mayweather-Pacquiao fight from expert analysts John J. Raspanti (who was in Las Vegas for the event) and Rizwaan Zahid.
