SI’s Richard Hoffer, author of Ali/Frazier/Foreman book

July 27th, 2014

 Richard Hoffer cut his teeth on boxing as a young writer for the Los Angeles Times, where he chronicled the astonishing era of Little Red Lopez, Bobby Chacon, Carlos Palomino, Art Aragon and others.
  That led to the gig to which al sportswriters aspire -- Sports Illustrated -- where he's a senior writer on the staff.

  Hoffer was the featured guest on our July 27, 2014 Ringside Boxing Show to talk about his newest book, "Bouts of Mania: Ali, Frazier, Foreman and an America on the Ropes."

  Setting the stage for Hoffer is a lively postmortem of Golovkin's sensational KO of Geale, along with Jennings' narrow conquest of Perez, and the controversial point deduction that made the difference.
