Paul Thorn has shared a stage with John Prine and Bonnie Raitt, and he shared an ambulance with Roberto Duran on the way to a hospital, where both were stitched up after a bloody fight when the celebrated singer-songwriter was a professional boxer.

We missed connections Sunday with our scheduled guest, which turned into an opportunity to replay one of the most-colorful interviews we've ever done on The Ringside Boxing Show.

Enjoy this lively conversation with the Tupelo, Mississippi performer whose songbook includes, "It's a great day for me to whup somebody's ass."

The Paul Thorn interview is preceded by an analysis of the 85-second Jacobs-Quillin fight by Travis Hartman, Rizwaan Zahid and John J. Raspanti, who also psychoanalyze Tyson Fury, and debate Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry's assessment that Fury has some vocal chops.

Before Paul Thorn became a well-known singer/songwriter, he was a professional fighter good enough to fight Roberto Duran in 1988, a nationally televised bout that ended after Round 6 when Thorn's lip got badly split.

The other half of that story is that Duran also was a bloody mess at the end, and he and Thorn rode to the hospital together in the same ambulance.

The Tupelo, Mississippi troubadour joined us July 20, 2014, to spin colorful yarns about his life as the son of a preacher and the nephew of a pimp (who became his trainer for a 16-3 boxing career) ... and we even got him to talk a little bit about his music.

This is a lively, humorous, dead-honest conversation guaranteed to make a Paul Thorn fan out of anybody who hears it.

In the first half of this lively show, expert analysts Travis Hartman, Rizwaan Zahid and John J. Raspanti were on fire with their thorough postmortem of Canelo-Lara, enlightening previews of Brook-Porter, Algieri-Pacquiao, and insight on Hopkins-Kovalev, Cotto-Canelo, Cotto-Golovkin, and other hot rumors.
