Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. had everything to gain against Canelo Alvarez -- most of all, a chance to make the boxing public (especially Mexican fans) forgive him for past missteps. He's been lazy, uncommitted, often lackadaisical in the gym (even smoking dope in at least one training camp). He's lacked discipline with his diet, hasn't work well with with a Who's Who of boxing trainers, and he has failed to live up to the (unfair?) expectations of a bigger-than-life family name.

A leave-it-in-the-ring effort against Canelo, win or lose, would have clensed him forever. Instead, he turned in one of the worst performances of his career when the stakes were highest and his legacy was on the line.

Boxing experts Travis Hartman, Rizwaan Zahid, and John J. Raspanti review the fight, break down what happened, and try to explain how and why Chavez left his "A Game" in the gym. Their insightful explanations and analysis might surprise you.

The second half of our show is another treat as we replay a classic interview we did with 1950s boxing legend Tony DeMarco, a Hall of Famer who fought classic, toe-to-toe fights with Carmen Basilio, Johnny Saxton, Gasper Ortega, Don Jordan, and other greats from the "Golden Age of Boxing."

The heavyweight championship fight between 41-year-old Wladimir Klitschko, who ruled the division for more than a decade, and Anthony Joshua, his 27-year-old heir, was highly anticipated -- true enough. What few of us expected, though, was an event we'll probably still be talking about when we're old and grey. Boxing oracles Travis Hartman, Rizwaan Zahid, and John J. Raspanti review one of the most-memorable heavyweight tussles since Evander Holyfield's prime, reminisce about the instant-classic fifth and sixth rounds, and speculate about the futures of both fighters on this edition of The Ringside Boxing Show. We also tell you who will win the upcoming Mexican mega-collision between Canelo Alvarez and Julio Cesar Chavez Jr., a clash that feels a lot more intriguing today than it did a few weeks ago.

And then Amir Mansour joins John Raspanti for a thorough discussion of Joshua-Klitschko, Deontay Wilder, the heavyweight division, and his recent victory over Travis Kauffman, which he hopes puts him in the conversation for a long-awaited world title shot.

 Tony DeMarco won the welterweight championship of the world in 1955, beating Johnny Saxton by TKO in the 14th round of a fight whose brutality typified the career of the "Boston Bomber."

  His 14-year career included spectacular battles with Carmen Basilio, Virgil Aikens, Gaspar Ortega and Kid Gavilan, among others, during The Golden Age of Boxing.

 In his heyday, during one 18 month stretch, DeMarco fought 10 times against the toughest opposition in the division.

 On Jan. 14, 2017, DeMarco celebrated his 85th birthday in Boston. This interview, conducted by Dennis Taylor, "Irish" Joe O'Rourke, and David Duenez of "Leave It In The Ring," took place in 2012, five days before his 80th birthday.

 Our Tony DeMarco replay is preceded by our expect analysts, Rizwaan Zahid and John J. Raspanti, who dissect Saturday's spectacular super middleweight unification brawl between Badou Jack and James DeGale, the coming-out party of Gervonta Davis in the semi-main event, Julio Cesar Chavez Jr's challenge of making weight against Canelo or paying a $1 million-per-pound fine, and a look forward at Frampton-Santa Cruz II, Garcia-Thurman, and Cotto-Kirkland.
