International Boxing Hall of Famer did two separate terms as editor-in-chief of The Ring magazine, and also oversaw Boxing Illustrated, Ring Almanac, KO and World Boxing.

We tapped into Collins' rich history as a fight scribe and got him to reminisce about over-capacity fight nights at the Blue Horizon, gangster Blinky Palermo, Lou Duva, Muhammad Ali, and his own stormy departure from The Ring.

This is a candid and colorful conversation with a legend of boxing journalism.

Before our interview with Nigel Collins, John J. Raspanti catcches up with Sacramento-based junior welterweight Stan Martinyouk, who expects 2017 to be a breakout year.

And we lead off with rapid-fire postmortem of a spectacular boxing Saturday with Travis Hartman, Rizwaan Zahid, and John J. Raspanti, who break down Parker-Ruz, Charlo-Williams, Crawford-Molina, Whyte-Chisora, Joshua-Mollina, and Mares-Cuellar -- all in 20 minutes.

Front to back, this is one of our best shows of the year.

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.

The Brin-Jonathan Butler segment is preceded by our triple-threat of boxing expertise -- Travis Hartman, Rizwaan Zahid and John J. Raspanti -- who tell us whether any future world champs fought on the recent ShoBox/Mayweather tripleheader, whether the gloves will matter in Mayweather-Maidana II, the mouthwatering goodness of a Pacquiao-Garcia fight, and tons more.

Listen to us live every Sunday at www.ringsideboxingshow.com, beginning at 4 p.m. Pacific, 5 p.m. Mountain, 6 p.m. Central, 7 p.m. Eastern.

Discover us! Then, do us a solid and tell a friend.

 The first gold medal-winner on the greatest U.S. Olympic boxing team of all time was Leo Randolph, a 112-pound flyweight who was 18 years old (still the youngest gold medalist in Olympic boxing history) and still in high school.
  Randolph was followed to the podium by fellow gold medalists Howard Davis, Ray Leonard, and Michael and Leon Spinks.
  Randolph skipped the closing ceremonies to be home in time for church the following morning, then waited two years to turn pro -- something he never intended to do.
  In the pro ranks he won a world championship, lost it in his first title defense, and, at just 22, became the youngest retired world champ in history.
  Leo Randolph joined us for an outstanding, in-depth interview on the Dec.. 1, 2013 edition of The Ringside Boxing Show.
