Richard Steele was a U.S. Marine Corps boxing teammate of Ken Norton. He was the ordained minister who presided over the funerals of Diego Corrales and Eddie Futch. And he was the third man in the ring for many of the greatest fights in the history of boxing, including the most-spectacular 8 minutes of all time—Hagler-Hearns.

The International Boxing Hall of Famer was Sunday’s featured guest on The Ringside Boxing Show for an in-depth conversation about his remarkable life and career. This is one of the most-colorful interviews we’ve ever done.

The Richard Steele interview is preceded by insight from analysts Travis Hartman, Rizwaan Zahid and John J. Raspanti into Roy Jones Jr.‘s new listing on the Ukraine’s “Enemies of State” list, the 130,000 cigarettes Mayorga has smoked since the first Mosley fight, the sanity of betting on Lemieux (a 16-1 underdog) to beat Golovkin, and the epic carnage that could be Rios-Provodnikov
