Mat Whitecross, Director Of The Showtime Docuseries "The Kings" On Leonard, Duran, Hearns and Hagler. Plus, The State Of Boxing And The U.S. In The 1980's

If it’s a mid-week podcast, you know that I have a special guest on deck as Episode #204 relives a golden era in boxing (the 1980’s) with Mat Whitecross, director of the Showtime docuseries, The Kings. We delve into the lives and careers of boxing legends Sugar Ray Leonard, Roberto Duran, Thomas Hearns and Marvin Hagler. We get into their classic bouts, the state of America during the 80’s with Ronald Reagan at the helm, and how these fighters persevered and rose to fame during this time. This will surely take you down memory lane for those who lived it. Or you’ll learn quite a bit, and much more, if you haven’t had the opportunity to watch from afar and witness their greatness in the ring.
