In his up-and-coming years, Kermit Cintron was regarded as one of the hardest-hitting welterweights in the world, and that pop was a major factor in a 24-0 start that included 22 knockouts.
He lost his "0" by TKO to Antonio Margarito -- one of two KO losses to the Mexican, who not long afterward was caught plastering his hand wraps before a fight with Shane Mosley.
By the time he fought Margarito the first time, Cintron already was fighting with a badly injured right hand, a problem that has plagued him throughout his career.
Nine years and two surgeries later, Cintron is, at last, pain-free. He returned from a layoff of more than two years on May 6, winning a six-round decision, and has designs on re-establishing himself as a player in the welterweight and super welterweight divisions.
We had a terrific, in-depth conversation with the 36-year-old father of three on the May 22 edition of The Ringside Boxing Show.

Our conversation with Kermit Cintron is preceded by a breakdown of the weekend action by expert analysts Rizwaan Zahid and John J. Raspanti, who review the history-making performance of the Charlo Brothers, Erislandy Lara's victory over Vanes Martirosyan, and unpack Canelo Alvarez's reluctance to face Gennady Golovkin in 2016.
