San Francisco, CA- Larry Merchant, the HBO broadcasting Godfather was humbled when we sung “Happy Birthday” to the 39-year old (wink-wink) legend of sports television. He is actually a tad older than 39, but I’ll let him explain that to you on “Ring Talk Radio.” Ava Grant, the IBF flyweight (112 lb.) female champion talked about her career and womens boxing as a whole.


Publicist Mary Ann Owen was kind enough to spend some time discussing the female side of pugilism. We disagreed on Leila Ali and Ann Wolfe, but that’s what talk radio is all about. I take you through the history of female boxing from the 1800s to 1904, when two women fought for a “butter dish” and the first televised female fight featuring Barbara Buttrick.

  2. Sal, Robert is fighting Floyd and the other big names everyday, in the press. I think he’s ready to call it a day and all he needs is a big pay day to retire. So in a way he’s looking for a way out.

  3. Pedro, any way you guys could optimize the site for HTML5? iOS (iPad & the rest of the mobile platforms) are already there. Flash is history, dead. These days I and lots of people I know are on the iPad/iPhone all day.

  4. Kevin Perry will look into this.

  5. Todaline, you are so full of Pac s*it. Pac is inferior as a boxer. Look at the fact that he needed a “KO to win” before round 12, so said Freddie Roach vs. JM Marquez. Floyd never lost a minute against JMM.

  6. Pedro, are you confusing me with someone else? I am one who believes that Pac is 1 and 2 against JMM. Perhaps you meant another name. KP will tell you that I’m a Pac hater.

  7. As far as I know the site works fine on iphone, don’t know much about the ipad.Shoot the info to and Pete will forward that to me.

  8. KP, I’m able to play some videos, but the problem is mainly with the radio shows. Impossible to listen to those and that is why I thought that Flash might be the reason. Tx.

  9. Todaline, try the RSS feed for the shows. I have a buddy who listens from his phone that way.

    KP on February 14th, 2012 at 12:29 PM
  10. Tx KP, I’ll try that.

    todaline on February 14th, 2012 at 4:57 PM
  11. Hooray, it works. Didn’t think about that. Thanks again.

  12. @ todaline, what makes a man to HATE another man…… ? hmmmm…..

    martillo on February 15th, 2012 at 10:50 PM
  13. What do you mean “hate?”

    Pedro Fernandez on February 16th, 2012 at 12:32 AM
  14. @martillo, usually ignorance. But I do not hate anyone. Please re-read my sentence above and you’ll understand. Besides, I believe that on this and other forums, you can equate hate with DISLIKE.
