1999 Boxing Talk



Back in the 90's I was a regular contributor to The Chicago Tribune's 24 news channel. Their sports show was called Sports Page, and it was a call in show. Whenever Boxing was in the news, they'd call me

Here's an episode where I was on for most of the hour. This was early 1999, when Tyson had assaulted 2 men breaking his probation, and was about to serve a 9 month prison sentence.

We talk about Roy Jones, Oscar De La Hoya, and even do a phone interview with former 130lb champion Angel Manfredy who had just lost to Floyd Mayweather in a  December 1998 unification match.
