The world's most-unique boxing historian, Christopher James Shelton, paints a fascinating factual portrait of the boxing history of Tombstone, Arizona and the Wild West, where Wyatt Earp, Doc Holiday, and a future sportswriter named Bat Masterson were slinging guns, straddling both sides of the law, and ushering the Sweet Science through the 1880s and '90s.

The Wild West boxing history segment is preceded by our expert analysts, Travis Hartman, Rizwaan Zahid and John J. Raspanti, who take a peek into the strange minds of Adrien Broner, Shannon Briggs, Mike Alvarado and Kelly Pavlik, applaud the comeback of fighter-turned-trainer Paul "The Punisher" Williams, and tell us whether Teddy Atlas will be a difference-maker in Pacquiao Bradley, among other topics.

The Ringside Boxing Show can be heard live every Sunday at www.radiomonterey.com at 4 p.m. Pacific, 5 Mountain, 6 Central, 7 Eastern.
