On the latest edition of the show, it's time for T.J. and his guests to get a little nostalgic, as two huge fight anniversaries happened four decades ago this week with Muhammad Ali and Sugar Ray Leonard. T.J. welcomes Marquis Johns, Sr. Writer of Big Fightweekend.com, and historian Lee Groves of RingTV.com and his own boxing history books to the show. The guys discuss "The Greatest" Muhammad Ali recapturing the Heavyweight title for a second time, when he defeated Leon Spinks in a rematch in the Louisiana Superdome in 1978. Lee gives great perspective on how Ali got "the magic back" for one more night. They also go over the anniversary of Leonard's epic World Welterweight title win over unbeaten Thomas "Hit man" Hearns the same week but three years later in 1981 in Las Vegas. It was part of the "Four Kings" who ruled the middle divisions of boxing in the late 70s through the early 90s with Robert Duran and Marvin Hagler. And, they became the wealthiest non-Heavyweights ever in doing so. Finally, T.J. and Marquis go over the limited fight cards for the weekend that was supposed to have Canelo Alvarez going for Super Middleweight supremacy but its delayed until November. Still, there are a couple of Premier Boxing Champions cards on back to back nights in Bakersfield, CA that Marquis has insight on for fans.

On today's episode, Jason kicks things off with a deep dive into the Simone Biles situation that took place this week at the Olympics. Say what you want about her mental health an anxiety, but in a word, Biles quit. Period. But that doesn't mean it has to hold a negative connotation or disqualify her from any larger conversation about her place in gymnastics history. There's no perfect comparison for Biles in sports history but one that comes close is Robert Duran's famous ‘No Mas' fight against Sugar Ray Leonard. At the time, Duran was widely criticized for throwing in the towel. But years later, Mike Tyson said he admired the courage it took for Duran to recognize he didn't have it and quit. The same logic can be applied to Biles. Moreover, anybody who thinks that Biles can no longer be considered the GOAT of women's gymnastics because of this is asinine. Should LeBron James be eliminated from basketball GOAT consideration because he melted down in the 2011 NBA Finals? Of course not. Later, Jason shares a few thoughts on Aaron Rodgers' ‘senatorial' address to the media detailing everything that's gone wrong with the Packers organization for the past few years; Rodgers gave the organization a verbal spanking for the world to see. Maybe next time the Packers - or any other NFL franchise - will take their superstar's feelings and thoughts into consideration the next time they decide to make wholesale changes. That's not to say that NFL teams should bow down to their stars, but they'd be foolish not to at least consult them from time to time. Finally, Jason closes the show with a quick note on Quinn Ewers' decision to forego his senior year of high school so he can immediately capitalize on his Name Image and Likeness at Ohio State. Is this going to become the norm for college sports? Only time will tell. Click here to subscribe, rate and review all of the latest Straight Fire with Jason McIntyre podcasts!

This discussion was prompted by the following question from the Fight Site discord patron Smesh: "How much does a person's personality affect their fighting style and are there any clear examples of someone fighting entirely against who they are?" Connor introduces his pet theory that all fighters are secretly driven by their insecurities, and both Iggy and Connor do their best to examine this idea from multiple angles, pointing out the dangers of engaging in too much armchair psychology, and the inherent impossibility of being 100% objective when evaluating fighters.

Host T.J. Rives is back and has the conversation with Mat Whitecross, who spent over two years on "The Kings" and now the episodes are airing this month on the premium cable network and their app. The guys discuss all the particulars on how Whitecross became involved in the project, his compiling of hundreds of hours of footage and interviews and how its all come together in theses episodes. If you love the history of not just boxing, but sports, you will want to hear much more and see these episodes through Showtime. T.J. also welcomes Marquis Johns, Sr. Writer of BigFightWeekend.com, to discuss less weekend's much hyped exhibition fight between Floyd "Money" Mayweather and Logan Paul. This includes the guys playing some "I told you so," at the outcry that the bout wasn't really a fight in the boxing sense, but more of a money grab for all involved. And, is there really a future left for the former 5 division champ Mayweather and are the Paul brothers a social media fad/con that the boxing public have now figured out and won't be buying PPV's with them any longer? T.J. and Marquis also discuss more details on the upcoming massive Heavyweight Title bout in July between WBC champ, Tyson Fury and former champ, Deontay Wilder. This includes on update on how and why the fight will likely be in an arena with less crowd than Allegiant Stadium, the home of the Las Vegas Raiders, with bigger capacity. Finally, they discuss the fights this weekend in Vegas and also earlier in the day, U.S. time in England.

Tommy Davidson started his career as a stand-up comedian in Washington DC, earning an ardent following with sheer hard work in various comedy clubs. As one of the cutting-edge, young stand-ups, he was spotted by major concert promoters, who booked him as the opening act for A-list touring acts, including Patti LaBelle, Kenny G and Luther Vandross. It wasn't long before he came to Hollywood and was performing stand-up at a number of clubs, including the Comedy Act Theatre, where he met Robert Townsend. This led to his first national television appearance, with a starring role in Partners in Crime (2005) and was the conduit to Keenen Ivory Wayans, who proved instrumental in Davidson's career by offering him an opportunity to audition and join the uniquely talented cast of the most adventurous prime-time variety show of its day, In Living Color (1990). He, Jamie Foxx, Jim Carrey and Damon Wayans made TV history with their originality.in this revealing memoir, Tommy Davidson shares his unique perspective on making it in Hollywood, being an integral part of television history, on fame and family, and on living a life that has never been black and white—just funny and true . . . Abandoned as an infant on the streets of Greenville, Mississippi, and rescued by a loving white family, Tommy Davidson spent most of his childhood unaware that he was different from his brother and sister. All that changed as he came of age in a society of racial barriers—ones that he was soon to help break. On a fledgling network, Tommy joined the cast of In Living Color, alongside other relative newcomers all united by an ingenious throng of Wayans siblings, poised to break new ground. Now Tommy gives readers the never-before-told behind-the-scenes story of the first show born of the Hip Hop Nation: from its incredible rise, to his own creation of such unforgettable characters as Sweet Tooth Jones and dead-on impressions of Sammy Davis, Jr., Michael Jackson, M.C. Hammer and Sugar Ray Leonard, and appearing in such classic sketches as “Homie The Clown,” the “Hey Mon, family,” and the “Ugly Woman,” through guest-star skirmishes (and black eyes) to backstage tensions and the eventual fall of this pop-culture touchstone. He reveals his own nascent career on the stand-up circuit, as well as reflections on working with Spike Lee, Halle Berry, Chris Rock, and Jada Pinkett Smith. He also shares his very personal story of living with—and being inspired and empowered by—two distinct family histories. Told with humor and hard-won honesty, Living in Color is a bracing, illuminating, and remarkable success story.

T.J interviews Brian Doogan from the U.K. about writing his book about the Middleweight title fight that captivated boxing in the late 80s and “broke the bank” for non-Heavyweights! Leonard came out of a three year retirement to dethrone the menacing Hagler, who had defended the Undisputed Middleweight title 12 times prior to that April 1987 night. Get all the sub-plots about these two Hall of Fame fighters and their battle from Brian and his book, which is out now. Then, Marquis Johns, Sr. Writer of BigFightWeekend.com, comes in to discuss the important fight cards. This includes: the WBO World Title bout at Light Heavyweight in Oklahoma for American Joe Smith Jr. and Russian Maxim Vlasov on Saturday night. Smith is looking to take advantage of a second chance to win a world title in the ESPN main event from Tulsa. Smith is currently slightly favored at -330 to beat the Russian.

And, the guys talk about Philly’s, unbeaten (26-0, 24 KOs) Jaron “Boots” Ennis headlining in a Welterweight main event for Showtime Boxing at the Mohegan Sun Casino in Connecticut, too. Ennis is ticketed to be a world title challenger potentially later this year or early 2022, but Lipinets is a former title holder at 140 lb. Ennis is -1000 to get the win and -275 for the KO.

Welcome to the 6th Round Retro Post-Fight Show. This is the show that digs into the archives and gives you a comprehensive review of classic MMA events, that span as far back as UFC 1. Join Victor Rodriguez & Mookie Alexander as they deviate from the normal format of the show and rather than delving into an MMA event of yesteryear they are covering the FIGHT ZONE PPV (pay-per-view) event which aired on the “Action Pay-Per-View-Channel” in May 1995. The event was produced by boxing phenom Sugar Ray Leonard. Notable to pro wrestling fans would be the appearance of Tony Hale, who appeared in the WWF as Ludvig Borga in 1993. So let’s take a trip back to the mid-90s this week and check out this strange hybrid of mixed martial arts and pro wrestling tactics, complete with results, analysis, and of course a few laughs. As mentioned, this week we feature the May, 1995 ‘FIGHT ZONE’ PPV event, (last episode we covered BELLATOR 58: ‘Michael Chandler vs Eddie Alvarez’). This event can be viewed while we delve into the show on YouTube at: https://youtu.be/kH2VODfVmGI We start off the program with a totally nineties hype-train opener: “If raw, bare-fisted combat is what you crave – then enter the FIGHT ZONE! The most dangerous place on Earth!!!” The show went down from the “world famous Hollywood Palladium Arena” in California. Your ‘commentators’ were Danny Martinez and Cameron Fedder (a self-described underground fight devotee and fan of violence). The big name host of the show was none other than Eric Estrada (of television hit show C.H.I.P.S. fame), along with co-host Ray Leonard, Jr.. Their ‘Reporter on the Floor’ was Brad Fuller and their ‘Technical Advisor’ & Former World Karate Champion, Michael Jai White was on the scene for ‘fight insights’. They had a lengthy cast lined up for the event which included: Willie Anderson Jr aka: ‘Pit Fighter’, Adam Avoledo aka: ‘Badd Karma’, Clayton J.

Stunts performed by J.D. Rifkin with an on-site Stunt Coordinator, Jan Washburn. A popular television gimmick at the time was phone-in viewer interactivity, so the program invited the viewers to call their hotline after the show and vote for who they wanted to be the Champion, regardless them winning their bout or not. _______________________________ If you enjoy our show, "heart" us here on SC, or "like" & share over on whichever BE Presents Podcast Channel happens to be your listening platform of choice.

THE HEART OF A CHAMPIONLegendary sports icon, Olympic champion and Hall of Famer, philanthropist, bestselling author, television personality, ringside analyst and longtime face of Skechers' popular Relaxed Fit collections, Sugar Ray Leonard has established a legacy that epitomizes boxing and invokes the reverence of a champion. Leonard's illustrious career outside of the ring merits like admiration, as a vanguard in the cultural movement that has brought the sport of boxing front and center today; Leonard also helms the Sugar Ray Leonard Foundation which celebrates its 12th anniversary this May, committed to funding life changing research for pediatric type 1 & type 2 diabetes, and helping children build early healthy habits.  Having learned to box at the young age of 14, Leonard's celebrated career includes three National Golden Gloves titles, two Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) championships and the 1975 Pan-American Games crown. After winning a gold medal in boxing at the 1976 Olympic games, he turned professional as a last ditch effort to help his family defer mounting medical bills incurred from father's illness. Blinding speed, tremendous power and palpable charm quickly made Leonard a media favorite, dubbed early on by the late Howard Cosell as the “new Muhammed Ali.” At the age of 20 (1977), Leonard won his first professional fight, only setting the stage for a collection of the most memorable fights in all of boxing history. He went on to defeat some of the greatest boxers of the modern era, from Wilfred Benetiz to Roberto Duran, Thomas Hearns and Marvelous Marvin Hagler, from whom Leonard won the world middleweight title. During his 20-year professional career, Leonard also won world titles in the welterweight, junior middleweight, super middleweight, and light heavyweight divisions— the first boxer to win world titles in five different weight classes.In 2011, Leonard published his first autobiography (Viking Books) THE BIG FIGHT: My Life In and Out of the Ring. In the inspiring autobiography, the boxing legend vulnerably confronts his greatest competitor: himself. Sugar Ray Leonard's raw and uplifting memoir reveals in intimate detail for the first time the complex human who waged his own personal battle with depression, rage, addiction and greed, that lay behind the champion.  Leonard's charismatic personality and expert ring knowledge led to a successful career as a television broadcaster for NBC, ABC, FOX, HBO and ESPN, also featured as the international commentator for the record-breaking Mayweather vs. McGregor fight. Other television credits include three consecutive seasons as host and mentor in the Emmy-nominated “The Contender,” and a fan-favorite contestant on ABC's still reigning competition series, “Dancing with the Stars.” Now, Leonard joins the DAZN broadcast team, the live and on-demand sports streaming platform, providing ringside analysis for Matchroom Boxing. On the silver screen, Leonard appeared in the critically-acclaimed Paramount Pictures film The Fighter, also expertly consulting for DreamWorks and Walt Disney Pictures' on Hugh Jackman's Real Steel. Perhaps most importantly, some of Leonard's most impactful work is yet to be done. With a deep calling towards and passion for humanity, Leonard has always been devoted to his community and to helping those in need. In establishing The Sugar Ray Leonard Foundation in 2009, Leonard and his wife, Bernadette took changing the world into their own capable hands. Since its inception a decade ago, the foundation has funded countless research projects and offered life changing patient care for children living with type 1 and type 2 diabetes. Furthermore, the foundation is also committed to helping children lead healthier lives through diet and exercise, equipping them with the tools to be successful in health later on. Leonard also lends his time to Habitat for Humanity, serves as co-chair for the Ambassadors of Children's Hospital Los Angeles (CHLA) and remains the international chairman of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation Walk for a Cure.  Leonard has four children and lives in Southern California with his wife, Bernadette. Connect with Ray: Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/sugarrayleonard/Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/SugarRayLeonard6/?ref=page_internalFollow The Story Box on Social MediaInstagram - https://www.instagram.com/thestoryboxpodcast/ Facebook Page - https://www.facebook.com/thestoryboxpodcast Website - https://thestoryboxpodcast.com/The Story Box on Podcast Platforms & Subscribe for more! Apple Podcast - https://podcasts.apple.com/au/podcast/the-story-box/id1486295252 Spotify - https://open.spotify.com/show/7h8Qv3r2ZV29f7ktJOwmgM?si=FXxYC1JFSHesBv7_d1WtNQ Watch The Full Episode Here: YouTube - https://www.youtube.com/c/TheStoryBox If you enjoyed this episode please subscribe to YouTube & Apple Podcasts, and leave a 5-star positive rating and review over on Apple Podcasts.
