Boxing Podcast With Russell Peltz

My guest on this podcast is legendary Philly promoter Russell Peltz.  It's Russell's 50th year as a promoter and we talked about his journey from being a sports reporter to promoting his first bout in 1969 at the age of 22. We discussed his amazing career as a promoter and focused on the decade of the 1970's when he promoted such greats as Bennie Briscoe, Marvin Hagler, Bobby "Boogaloo" Watts, Eugene "Cyclone" Hart, Matthew Saad Muhammad, Marvin Johnson, Roberto Duran, Bobby Chacon, Jeff Chandler and others.  We also got into how the sport and business of boxing have evolved and changed since Russell's first promotion in 1969.  It was a fascinating conversation - enjoy!
