Before he became one of the best-known refs on the East Coast, New Jersey native Randy Neumann was a world-ranked heavyweight who fought Jerry Quarry, Jimmy Young, Duane Bobick, and Chuck Wepner three times. He trained at Gleason's Gym under the legendary Freddie Brown, and fought at The Garden 13 times.

As a ref, he's gotten the closest possible view of Pernell Whitaker, Roy Jones Jr., Mike Tyson, Evander Holyfield, Nigel Benn, and Miguel Cotto. The New Jersey native saw Sinatra's dad in the ring. And ... did Randy Neumann really posed for PlayGirl Magazine?

Our Randy Neumann interview is preceded by a roundtable discussion of Floyd Mayweather Jr.'s "racism in boxing" comments by our expert analysts, Travis Hartman, Rizwaan Zahid and John J. Raspanti.

They also discuss whether Golovkin might go to England to fight Billy Joe Saunders, break down the impending war between Robert Guerrero and Danny Garcia, and analyze Al Haymon's business plan, among other topics.

  Harvey Dock ranks among the best amateur boxers in the history of his home state, where he was New Jersey's 1994 "Fighter of the Year" and has been enshrined in the New Jersey Boxing Hall of Fame.
  He opted to stay in the sport as a professional referee, not a boxer, and in 2013 emerged as one of the go-to refs for big fights on the East Coast.
  We had a fun and enlightening conversation with Dock on the Nov. 24 edition of The Ringside Boxing Show.
