The sport of Boxing lost a number of very important figures in 2012. A special tribute to them is currently featured on The Boxing Channel. This tribute is more unique because it features Hall of Fame boxing announcer Al Bernstein revisiting his role as recording artist as he is the vocalist in the musical part of the feature.
The musical tribute honors the likes of Emanuel Steward, Johnny Tapia, Hector Camacho, Angelo Dundee and others who passed away in 2012. It is part of the Boxing Channel's year end review, which includes other features looking back on 2012.
Also on The Boxing Channel several well received features return in January of the new year. The discussion show "Hot Topics" features expert panelists discussing the hot boxing topics of the day. The show has featured Yahoo Sports Boxing Writer Kevin Iole, Broadcasters Steve Farhood, Dave Bontempo and Al Bernstein. 2013 will also bring with it new episodes of "Center Stage," an intimate look at a fighter or major boxing figure.
