As many of you know, one of the goals of Through the Ropes is to give boxers and their compelling stories exposure. This week we kick off what I hope will be a regular segment leading up to the Beijing Olympics. Going for Gold will introduce listeners to the members of the U.S. Olympic boxing team.
Our first Olympian will be Sadam Ali, a Brooklyn based lightweight that a lot of people are talking about.
For our other segments, we've got calls out to some A list people. We'll keep you posted.
