Our expert analysts, Travis Hartman, Rizwaan Zahid, and John J. Raspanti noticed tweets last week from infamous PED expert Victor Conte, who claims Errol Spence Jr. is ducking VADA scrutiny once again as he prepares for his March 16 clash with Mikey Garcia. How come nobody’s investigating this except The Ringside Boxing Show? Spence and Crawford engaged in a smackfest Saturday in Oklahoma that culminated in a $1 million bet … what are the odds that the loser will pay up? How much difference could Freddie Roach make for Tyson Fury on Dec. 1 against Deontay Wilder? Whassup with PBC’s disappointing lineup of fights in 2019 on the Fox Network? And what about Maurice Hooker and “Big Baby” Miller … are they the truth at 140 and heavyweight?

We lead off this week’s show with a lively, wide-ranging conversation about those topics and others, and then British correspondent Paul McLaughlin updates us on the high-octane boxing scene in the United Kingdom.

It all precedes a fabulous, in-depth interview with New York Boxing Hall of Famer Harold Weston Jr., who fought Thomas Hearns, Pipino Cuevas, Wilfredo Benitez (twice), Vito Antuofermo, Saoul Mamby, and other top-drawer opponents during a spectacular era of the welterweight division. His stories are abundant, and they’re sensational. Don’t miss this one.
