Ringside Boxing Show (11-3-13) Part I

November 4th, 2013

 Professional boxer Travis Hartman, our expert analyst, speaks with emotion about Russian heavyweight Mago Abdusalamov, who, on the day of our show, lay in a medically induced coma, recovering from a blood clot in his brain, apparently the result of Saturday night's brutal fight with Mike Perez on HBO. Was Mago's corner culpable for showing too much valor on behalf of a courageous fighter -- should his trainers, the doctor, or the ref stopped the fight?

 Hartman also lauds the energetic and exciting (an exciting heavyweight?) performance of Perez, the Cuban defector now living in Ireland, he marvels at another overwhelming performance by Gennady Golovkin in his destruction of Curtis Stevens, and weighs in on the upcoming doubleheader featuring the Donaire-Darchinyan rematch and a battle of unbeatens, Vanes Martirosyan and Demetrius Andrade.

  Kathy Garcia then joined us to talk about her rising star, middleweight Paul Mendez, and take the blame for a sluggish performance (resulting in a draw) the previous Monday on Fox Sports 1 against Louis Hope.

  This is the first half of our Nov. 3, 2013, featuring an outstanding conversation with Spinks Brothers biographer John Florio after the commercial break.
