On this week's edition of SecondsOut Radio, host Eddie Goldman speaks with the legendary matchmaker and boxing personality Johnny Bos.
We open with a discussion of what has been the biggest sporting disgrace of the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games: the boxing competition. Besides the almost universally condemned scoring system utilized in Olympic boxing, there has been a general decline of boxing in the Olympics, and in particular a sharp decline in the amateur boxing program in the U.S.
All that and more is examined in this lengthy and fascinating interview.
Plus, Johnny offers his bleak assessment of the future of professional boxing, and ends by giving his advice to those already in boxing.
