The two-hour New England Ringside Boxing Radio Show – hosted by Ted Bodenrader, Anthony Pepe, Rick Brutti and Joe Bills -- airs every Thursday night between 6-8 pm (ET) on Boston’s Boxing Station, The Zone (1510 AM), and also may be heard live on the Internet by going to www.newenglandringside.com.
Ruiz-Toney will be fought at Madison Square Garden in New York City. Ruiz (45-5-1, 28 KOs), the first and only Hispanic heavyweight champion, feels an impressive victory against Toney finally will give him the respect he deserves in addition to increasing his popularity and forcing a showdown against one of the other heavyweight champions later this year
Toney (68-4-2, 43), one of boxing’s most outspoken and controversial figures, is a three-time world champion in three different divisions -- middleweight, super middleweight and cruiserweight. “Lights Out” has only had two fights as a heavyweight, but he’s 10-1-1 in world title fights.
“Stoney” and Toney already had to be restrained at the recent New York City press conference announcing the fight. Their volatile personalities promise fireworks as well as a test for the station’s seven-second delay button.
New England Ringside also hosts a popular web site, publishes a monthly magazine, and owns Fightography (sells classic boxing pictures). For more information about New England Ringside call 617.835.9137 or go on line to www.newenglandringside.com.
