WE CELEBRATE LARRY MERCHANT’S BIRTHDAY WITH FEMALES
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.
LISTEN & SEE WHY “RING TALK RADIO” HAS BEEN ON 27 YEARS!
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.
