Raspanti, and British correspondent Paul McLaughlin, reminisce about an astounding year in boxing that included stunning upsets, spectacular slugfests, emerging superstars, sad and valiant exits … and, as always, plenty ofstrangeness from guys who get punched in the head for a living.

The Mayweather-McGregor circus exceeded its (low) expectations. Floyd became an aggressor for the first time in his career. McGregor survived into the 10th round. Pay-Per-View really did exceed Mayweather-Pacquiao (even if 5,000 seats were empty at T-Mobile Arena.
Our expert analysts, Travis Hartman, Rizwaan Zahid and John J. Raspanti unpack the positives and negatives of what somehow became the biggest event of the year in combat sports. They also talk about Gervonta Davis losing his world title on the scales, review Miguel Cotto's slugfest victory over Yoshihiro Kamegai, and breathe a sigh of relief that we can all look forward to Canelo-Golovkin.
That all sets the stage for British correspondent Paul McLaughlin, who updates us on the UK boxing scene, and our extraordinary boxing historian, Christopher James Shelton, who gives us an in-depth view at the life and legend of America's first boxing superstar, John L. Sullivan.

  Amir Mansour almost celebrates the only loss of his career, to Steve Cunningham, because Cunningham was fighting for his baby daughter, who needed a heart transplant.

For the record, Mansour believes he deserved the decision in that fight, but his focus in postfight press conferences was helping Cunningham raise money for the medical procedure. His efforts led to more than $20,000 in contributions.

We talked boxing, prison (Mansour did 8 1/2 years on drug charges), redemption, aging, and the relationship between ISIS and real Muslims with the heavyweight contender on The Ringside Boxing Show.

The Amir Mansour interview is preceded by a thorough breakdown of Saturday's Cotto-Canelo fight and undercard by expert analysts Travis Hartman, Rizwaan Zahid and John J. Raspanti.
