No, these aren't military veterans we're talking with, these are veterans of the sweet science.

This week we've got over a century worth of boxing experience and stories to tell. HBO's Harold Lederman, legendary trainer Angelo Dundee and Florida Boxing Hall of Fame President Butch Flansberg

Thanks for all of the kind words on the blog and in your emails regarding my HBO debut on Saturday. It was an incredible experience. Most importantly, my hair was perfect.

Talk to you tomorrow.

On the Road Again

Good show this week. If you don't know Harry Joe Yorgey, you should. He is undefeated and this weekend takes on Alfredo Angulo. By the way, this fight is for the WBO Interim Junior Middleweight title. Forget the fact that Paul Williams is already the interim champion and Sergei Dzindziruk is the regular champion. I guess 2 champions weren't enough for the WBO, so they will have 3 champions in the division.

And don't forget, the same night Dawson and Johnson compete for the IBO and WBC Interim title. Forget the fact that Jean Pascal is the WBC regular champion and is active, so there's no reason for an interim title.

We'll also talk with Fightnews Publisher Karl Freitag. Karl is our resident expert on the European scene, so he'll break down Haye - Valuev for us.

I'll be in Hartford working as a ring announcer. This will be the third week in a row for me on the road.

Last week I was in Vegas doing the undercard of Agbeko - Perez, which was a sensational fight. If it looked good on TV, I promise you it looked better from the first row.

While in Vegas, I met Tyson, Tanya Tucker and a super model. The super model looked air brushed even in person.Just like Agbeko - Perez, you think it looks good on TV, a super model is even more impressive in person.

Talk to you tonight.
