My name is Matt Ward and I am a boxing writer and historian from the Greater Philadelphia area. Every two weeks, my producer Peter Lloyd and I will give you an inside look into the world of boxing. Our new podcast will air on Wednesday, February 1, 2017. The Weigh-In Boxing Podcast will feature interviews that focus on the sport of boxing both past and present.
Our first episode will feature my interview with former super middleweight boxing contender Frank Savannah. Frank fought professionally from 1991-1997, and retired with an impressive record of 15 wins, 1 loss, and 1 draw. On December 14, 1994, Savannah fought Dana Rosenblatt for the WBC Continental Americas Middleweight Title. This bout was the only defeat in Savannah’s six year boxing career. Frank is currently a boxing coach and trainer at Nick Catone MMA & Fitness in Brick, New Jersey.
