The best referee in boxing today might be Harvey Dock, who regularly pops up as the third man in the ring in nationally televised main events from Madison Square Garden, Barclays Center, and Atlantic City.
The New Jersey native joins us for an intriguing in-depth conversation about his life, his career, and other topics, including what those punches sound like when you’re standing right next to them.
Our interview with Harvey Dock is preceded by another report from British correspondent Paul McLaughlin on the fascinating UK boxing scene, and a look at the week’s boxing news with expert analysts Travis Hartman, Rizwaan Zahid, and John J. Raspanti, including the Wilder/Joshua/Povetkin triangle, Josh Taylor’s decision to join the already-packed WBSS 140-pound tournament, a preview of the spectacular under-the-radar cruiserweight collision between undefeated Oleksandr Usyk and Murat Gassiev, and anticipation of the long-awaited U.S. arrival of “El Inca,” the big-screen story of the legendary Edwin Valero.
Dennis Taylor is host of The Ringside Boxing Show, editor/publisher of www.ringsideboxingshow.com, and co-author (with John J. Raspani) of “Intimate Warfare: The True Story of the Arturo Gatti and Micky Ward Boxing Trilogy,” an Amazon bestseller.
