In Depth: Leo Randolph, Olympic & World Champ

December 1st, 2013

 The first gold medal-winner on the greatest U.S. Olympic boxing team of all time was Leo Randolph, a 112-pound flyweight who was 18 years old (still the youngest gold medalist in Olympic boxing history) and still in high school.
  Randolph was followed to the podium by fellow gold medalists Howard Davis, Ray Leonard, and Michael and Leon Spinks.
  Randolph skipped the closing ceremonies to be home in time for church the following morning, then waited two years to turn pro -- something he never intended to do.
  In the pro ranks he won a world championship, lost it in his first title defense, and, at just 22, became the youngest retired world champ in history.
  Leo Randolph joined us for an outstanding, in-depth interview on the Dec.. 1, 2013 edition of The Ringside Boxing Show.
