December 27th, 2010

He was one of the most-successful amateur boxers of his era as a teenager, but succumbed to the lure of the street life, got busted for cocaine trafficking, and spent five years in a penitentiary.

When Wilkins Santiago was released, he was a better person and a vastly different fighter -- qualities he plans to use to propel him to a world championship.

In this amazing, in-depth interview, Santiago talks about the street, the penitentiary, the gym, and the future. Enjoy this astonishing conversation from our Dec. 26, 2010 editon of The Ringside Boxing Show.
