William Joppy: Three-time champ helps the homeless, mentors kids

February 12th, 2017

He won the WBA middleweight championship three times, and fought the likes of Felix Trinidad, Roberto Duran, and Bernard Hopkins, but William Joppy is enjoying the most-rewarding part of his life right now, counseling troubled kids in the Washington D.C. area and helping the homeless through his nonprofit organization, "Breakfast With Boxers."

We went deep with this humble boxing legend on the Feb. 12 edition of The Ringside Boxing Show, talking about the ups and downs of his amazing life. This one is not to be missed.

Our interview with William Joppy is preceded by a conversation with expert analysts Travis Hartman and John J. Raspanti about Andre Ward's subtle moves toward retirement, Julio Cesar Chavez's serious surprisingly serious aproach to making 164.5 pounds to fight Canelo, the upcoming fight between Hughie Fury and Joseph Parker, a dream matchup between Vasyl Lomachenko and Mikey Garcia, and the silly plan for Mayweather to fight McGregor.
