Boxing involves two muscular people wailing away on each other's faces. But other than that, is it funny? Following up on the smashing success (pun intended) of our MMA episode from a few weeks back, we're chatting with boxing writer Tim Starks about comedy and the sweet science. In a jam-packed interview, we talk about funny fighters, how humor can sell a bout and hilarious things (intentional and unintentional) that have happened in the ring.
Tim is the founder of The Queensberry Rules (queensberry-rules.com), a tremendous blog about boxing. How tremendous? In 2013, Time named Tim one of the 25 best bloggers on ANY subject, period. He's also an accomplished reporter who has covered Capitol Hill, the defense sector and the intelligence community.
