Actor/boxer Paul Le Mat: American Graffiti’s ‘John Milner’

August 28th, 2016

Before he won the first of his two Golden Globe Awards for portraying small-town tough guy "John Milner" in the iconic film, "American Graffiti," actor Paul Le Mat was an amateur boxing star in Los Angeles. In fact, right before he got that role, Le Mat won the Los Angeles Diamond Belt championship, the same tournament that crowned future world champions Mike Weaver, Bobby Chacon and Alberto Davila.

Le Mat joined us on The Ringside Boxing Show to discuss boxing, Hollywood, and the five novels he's written.

This fun conversation about wild times with Harrison Ford, Richard Dreyfus, and Sugar Ray Robinson is preceded by a breakdown of Robert Guerrero's stunning loss to Argentine cab driver David Peralta, the downward spiral of Ricky Hatton, and other intriguing topics by our expert analysts, Rizwaan Zahid and John J. Raspanti.
