Family Feud

On tonight's show, we'll talk with super middleweight prospect Dyah Davis.

Dyah is the son of 1976 Olympic gold medalist Howard Davis. Friday night, Dyah takes on Aaron Pryor, Jr. In 1976, Howard Davis, upset Aaron Pryor, Sr. twice to win a spot on the Olympic team. At the time, Pryor was a big favorite and was expected to win gold in Montreal.

Instead, Davis not only won gold, but was named the Outstanding Boxer in the games. Not only that, Davis' story is one that fans of the Olympics will remember for a long time. Howard's mother passed away while he was at the games, before he had his first fight. He decided to stay as his mother's last words to him were, "You bring home that gold."

So Friday's fight between Davis and Pryor, Jr. is an interesting story line. Pryor insists he has no sights on revenge and this is about his career, not his dad's. Tune in tonight to hear what Davis has to say.

Also, tonight, I'll reveal why Manny Pacquiao is the most overrated fighter in recent memory.

You can listen to tonight's show live at 9 ET/ 6 PT at or download the podcast tomorrow on iTunes.
