Veteran boxing trainers Abel Sanchez and Max Garcia joined us on the Feb. 28 edition to explain how they try to get a boxer's head screwed on properly before a fight. We ask them whether great fighters feel fear, why some glare into their opponent's eyes while others avert their gaze, where the line falls between confidence and overconfidence, whether smack talk is effective, how sparring partners are selected, why some boxers get cold feet when the spotlight gets bright ... and much more.

This remarkable conversation with two outstanding corner men is an education for even hardcore boxing fans.

Our conversation with Abel Sanchez and Max Garcia is preceded by analysis by John J. Raspanti and Travis Hartman of the weekend's big fighters --  Frampton-Quigg, Santa Cruz-Kiko, Crawford-Lundy -- plus opinions about the movement to make pro fighters eligible to compete in the Olympics.

The remarkable thing about Tino Avila's perfect win-loss record is that he never really had a true training camp until his most-recent fight.

The Ring Magazine's 10th-ranked bantamweight has signed on with Garcia Boxing, where he's the only fighter in the stable, and therefore the center of attention.

We spoke to Avila about his new situation with the Garcia family, and the fancy footwork and new ring strategies he unveiled in his most-recent victory, and his upcoming Dec. 18 fight, which most likely will be in Mexico.

We also spoke with the No. 1-ranked amateur 123-pounder in America, 15-time national champion Ruben "Dracula" Villa, who is the favorite to win next month's U.S. Olympic Trials and represent the USA at the Olympics in Rio.

Our feature interviews are preceded by predictions from Travis Hartman, Rizwaan Zahid and John J. Raspanti for Saturday's Cotto-Canelo showdown, a review of Holly Holm's stunning upset of Ronda Rousey and what it says about boxing, and a look at the war of words between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Oscar De La Hoya.

This Sunday, Nov. 22: Orlando Del Valle and Amir Mansour on The Ringside Boxing Show. Listen live every Sunday at www.radiomonterey.com at 4 p.m. Pacific, 5 Mountain, 6 Central, 7 Eastern.
