Was Jesus Christ a boxing fan?

April 22nd, 2020

 Was Jesus Christ a boxing fan? 

Jesus of Nazareth walked the Earth at the same time, in the same general region, as the greatest boxer of that era, Demokrates, who won the Olympia (now known as the Olympics) three times and was one of the most-famous men alive.

Did Demokrates know about Jesus? Not likely. Is it possible that Jesus knew about Demokrates? There's little doubt.

Our extraordinary boxing historian, Christopher James Shelton, shares some astonishing information about what boxing was like in the First Century, AD, the fighter who was the Muhammad Ali of his time, and other remarkable facts that he's uncovered through dedicated research. (Is boxing mentioned in the bible? Yep.)

Enjoy this incredible interview with Chris Shelton on a very special edition of The Ringside Boxing Show.

We do a deep dive on this week’s show into the life and career of six-time
world champion Michael Carbajal, the International Boxing Hall of Famer who
began boxing in a tin chicken coop (in Phoenix’s 120-degree heat).
He evolved into a three-time national amateur champion, an Olympic silver
medalist, and one of the greatest fighters who ever lived, compiling a
record of 49-4, with 33 KOs, in a career that spanned from 1989-99. For a
time, he was regarded by many as the No. 1 fighter in the world
pound-for-pound. Don’t miss this story-filled interview with a true legend
of the sport.

Floyd and Manny: Farce times two?

June 25th, 2017

What do they take us for? Manny Pacquiao and Freddie Roach are trying to convince us that Australian Jeff Horn (16-0-1, no A-list opponents) is an inspiring threat to the future Hall of Famer.

Meanwhile, Colin McGregor's promoter, UFC czar Dana White, says his fighter (0-0) is no joking matter for Floyd Mayweather (49-0).

Our expert analysts, Travis Hartman and John J. Raspanti, unpack both match-ups, psychoanalyze supporters of the underdogs, and also tell us what to expect from Broner vs. Mikey, and speculate about a possible Rigondeaux-Lomachenko collision.

This wide-reaching discussion is followed by an eye-opening interview with Adrian Clark, a 31-year-old boxing manager/agent (and author of Protect Yourself At All Times) who is on a quest to convince fighters that people who want 33 percent of their purses are ripping them off in a very big way.

This is a conversation guaranteed to enlighten fighters, managers, promoters and fans of "The Sweet Science."

The Secret Life of Sonny Liston

April 16th, 2017

Sonny Liston may have been the most-feared, least-understood heavyweight boxer in history, an ex-con and street thug who worked as a thumb-breaker for the mob, and whose boxing contract was owned by gangsters Frankie Carbo and Blinky Palermo of Murder Inc.

But author Paul Gallender, through 40 years of research, has uncovered a different side of Liston, a story he tells in his two biographies, "Sonny LIston: The Real Story Behind the Ali-Liston Fights," and the recently published "Sonny Liston: In a New Light."

Gallender joined us on The Ringside Boxing Show to paint a picture of a man with two very different personalities -- sullen, glowering, and frightening in the boxing world, and warm, generous, and affectionate when few were watching.

Our interview with Paul Gallender is preceded by expert analysts Travis Hartman and John J. Raspanti, who discuss Ward vs. Kovalev, Pacquiao's future, Froch's humiliating experience at the Joshua-Klitschko box office, the dark secret of Julio Cesar Chavez Jr., and more.

Ringside Classic: Jeff Fenech

December 18th, 2016

We open this show with a lively 30-minute discussion of Bernard Hopkins' brutal exit from the ring, the coming-out party of Joe Smith Jr., Alexander Povetkin's future after a second-straight dirty drug test, Golovkin vs. Jacobs, Terence Crawford's 50-day jail sentence, Canelo-Chavez Jr., Andre Ward retirement romors, and the WBC's strange decisoni to ban dad's as chief seconds for their boxing sons.

And then, when a scheduled guest cancels, we replay a classic interview with Australian legend Jeff Fenech, whose life was as colorful as his career was great.

The remarkable tale of ‘Homicide Hank,’ No. 2 all-time P4P

October 2nd, 2016

Henry Armstrong became the undisputed featherweight champion of the world in Oct. 1937, moved up 21 pounds to take the welterweight crown from all-time great Barney Ross the following May, and then, three months later, dropped to 135 to beat Hall of Fame lightweight king Lou Ambers.
Edward Scott Jr., the grandson of "Homicide Hank," was our featured guest on this edition of The Ringside Boxing Show to discuss the life and legend of Henry Armstrong, who became a Baptist minister and created the Henry Armstrong Foundation to serve at-risk youth. Scott has made the foundation his life's work in his grandfather's memory.
Our interview with Edward Scott Jr. is preceded by a colorful conversation with unbeaten heavyweight David Latoria, who, in his other job, is a Chicago Police officer.
And, as always, expert analysts Travis Hartman, Rizwaan Zahid and John J. Raspanti lead off, breaking down Tyson Fury's cocaine mess, Manny Pacquiao's inexplicable political alignment with a Philippines president who admires Hitler, the mouthwatering Walters-Lomachenko fight, and more.
