WOBURN, Mass.(September 6, 2005) – The action remains hot and heavy this week on the New England Ringside Radio Network. Thursday night’s special guests on the two-hour New England Ringside Boxing Radio Show, airing 6-8 PM/ET on Boston’s Boxing Station, The Zone (1510 AM), include IBF super featherweight champion Robbie “Bomber” Peden (25-2, 14 KOs), NABF featherweight title-holder Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero (15-0-1) and Irish super middleweight Paschal “Packie” Collins (13-2-1, 4 KOs).
Thursday night’s hosts Ted Bodenrader, Anthony Pepe, Rick Brutti and Joe Bills will be getting up close and personal with their special guests.
Peden will discuss his September 17 unification fight against Marco Antonio Barrera (60-4), the WBC super featherweight champion; his experience as a two-time Australian Olympian; and memories of a frightening attack in his sleep by a deranged intruder in 1999 that left Robbie with a broken kneecap, fractured hand, cuts on his face that required 55 stitches.
Guerrero talks about his meteoric rise in the featherweight division, his Sept. 16 title defense in California, as well as his relationship with manager Shelly Finkel.
Collins gets into what’s behind his first fight in six years Sept. 17 in “Mayhem in Mansfield” (see below), what it was like training Kevin “The Clones Colossus” McBride for his upset of Mike Tyson this past June, and his older brother, former world champion Steve Collins.
New England Ringside Promotions, a division of New England Ringside, in association with Irish Ropes and Cedric Kushner Productions is promoting “Mayhem in Mansfield,” September 17 at the Dana Barros Sports Complex (MA). Irish middleweight sensation John Duddy (11-0, 10 KOs) is headlining against Joe “The Assassin” Brady (13-4-1, 6 KOs).
