SecondsOut Radio: Drs. Goodman & Homansky on Fighter Safety & Luis Collazo, Edgar Santana, Gary Stark, Emmanuel Clottey, Jerson Ravelo & Juan Cabrera 

This week we have a special two-part edition of SecondsOut Radio.

In the first part, host Eddie Goldman speaks with several of the boxers who fought and were victorious this past Friday, May 19, on the "Broadway Boxing" card at the Manhattan Center in New York. We spoke with rising junior welterweight Edgar Santana (18-2, 13 KOs), fighting in his first main event at “Broadway Boxing”; unbeaten featherweight Gary Stark Jr. (16-0, 8 KOs); former title contender and comebacking junior welterweight Emmanuel Clottey (24-6, 14 KOs); and unbeaten middleweight prospect Juan Cabrera. We also spoke with two top fighters who were attending the show: now-former WBA welterweight champ Luis Collazo (26-2, 12 KOs), fresh off a controversial loss to Ricky Hatton; and returning super middleweight Jerson Ravelo (17-1, 12 KOs), who has had three straight first-round knockouts following a 17-month layoff.

In the second part of our show, we speak with Association of Boxing Commissions Vice President and former Nevada State Athletic Commissioner and emergency physician, Dr. Flip Homansky, and Nevada State Athletic Commission Medical Advisory Board Chairman, former Chief Ringside Physician, and Neurologist, Dr. Margaret Goodman. Drs. Homansky and Goodman are currently working with the newly-formed Combat Sports Center for Safety and Research (CSCSR), which aims to promote safety and awareness in sports such as boxing and mixed martial arts. In a lengthy discussion, they explained what studies this new center will undertake to further the cause of fighter safety, as well as what changes are needed in the regulation of the combat sports. We also touched on such issues as the prevalence of steroids and other dangerous supposedly performance-enhancing drugs in the combat sports. For more information about this center, contact Dr. Greg H. Bledsoe at
