Boxing historian Tony Triem is also the son of a boxing historian, a distinction that afforded him a youth spent in the company of some of the most famous fight people of all time — legends the rest of us only learned about from boxing lore.
The Las Vegas oracle joined us on The Ringside Boxing Show to reminisce about Sugar Ray Robinson, Sonny Liston, Willie Pep, Muhammad Ali, Henry Armstrong, Willie Pastrano, Lou Ambers, Beau Jack and a long list of other all-time greats who crossed his path during 56 years in the sport.
This is an exceptionally colorful and educational conversation, not to be missed by any true fan of The Sweet Science.
We also talk to our expert analysts, Travis Hartman, Rizwaan Zahid, and John J. Raspanti about Saturday’s fights — Usyk vs. Breidis in the World Boxing Super Series, Linares vs. Gesta, and Matthysse vs. Kiram — plus Andre Ward’s cryptic and suggestive “selfie,” the Pacquiao vs. Mike Alvarado rumor, and more.
And we get our weekly update on that dynamic boxing scene in the United Kingdom from our British correspondent, Paul McLaughlin.
