Amir Mansour almost celebrates the
only loss of his career, to Steve Cunningham, because Cunningham was fighting
for his baby daughter, who needed a heart transplant.
For the record, Mansour believes he deserved the decision in that fight, but his
focus in postfight press conferences was helping Cunningham raise money for the
medical procedure. His efforts led to more than $20,000 in contributions.
We talked boxing, prison (Mansour did 8 1/2 years on drug charges), redemption,
aging, and the relationship between ISIS and real Muslims with the heavyweight
contender on The Ringside Boxing Show.
The Amir Mansour interview is preceded by a thorough breakdown of Saturday's
Cotto-Canelo fight and undercard by expert analysts Travis Hartman, Rizwaan
Zahid and John J. Raspanti.
