This week, I'm pleased to welcome to the show for the first time Vitali Klitschko. We've had Wlad on, but never Vitali. Long time listeners know that I think the Brothers Klitschko represent everything the heavyweight championship should be about. They are truly global champions, are excellent ambassadors of the sport and do tons of charitable work. And while some fans will criticize their performance or style in the ring, you never -- and I mean never - see them come in out of shape and phoning it in.
We'll also talk with Jim Carney, whose book Ultimate Tough Guy is a good look at a forgotten heavyweight champ, Jim Jeffries. Today's boxing fans might be surprised to know that Jeffries was Mike Tyson and Sonny Liston, decades before those guys were born. While he wasn't a thug, he was considered indestructible in the ring.
We'll give a copy of the book away, so start studying your Jim Jeffries trivia.
It's going to be a great night. Tune in.
