In his last fight against Chris Arreola, Deontay Wilder not only broke his right hand, but he also tore his right biceps muscle. Recovering from those two injuries required both surgery and time, but Wilder sees a blessing: Like Larry Holmes, he returned to the gym early -- even before he was healed -- working exclusively with the left. The result, he says, has been the development of a new level of skill with his jab -- exactly what happened to Holmes, who became one of the legendary jabbers in heavyweight history.

That new weopon will be on display Feb.25 in Wilder's hometown of Birmingham, Ala.

This high-energy conversation also delves into Wilder's opinion of boxers who use Performance Enhancing Drugs, including two-time abuser Alexander Povetkin, whose fight with Wilder before he tested dirty in 2015.

Our interview with the undefeated WBC heavyweight champ is preceded by John J. Raspanti and Rizwaan Zahid's breakdown of the sensational rematch between Leo Santa Cruz and Carl Frampton, and Mikey Garcia's spectacular knockout victory over previously unbeaten world champion Dejan Zlatichinan, in Showtime's Saturday telecast.

A lively and enlightening show, front to back.

 Paulie Malignaggi grew up on Brooklyn's mean streets with an abusive stepfather, but recognized boxing as an alternative to vice and crime. Since turning pro, he's had a rocky road and more than one rise to the top, but he may well be at this career peak right now: He's popular, relevant, a reigning world champ and, maybe best of all, a rising star as a ringside analyst for Showtime.

 "The Magic Man" granted us an extra-long interview, talking about his life, his career, and his future. This one started our year with a bang.
