Our conversation with Johnathon Banks who trains Wladimir Klitschko. Wladimir Klitschko fights
2012 - Banks stopped undefeated top contender Seth Mitchell, 25-1-1 (19KO’s), on Saturday, November 17, 2012 in the second round at the Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, New Jersey on HBO World Championship Boxing.
Dropping Mitchell three times in the second round, referee Eddie Cotton called a halt to the destruction at the 2:37 mark of the second stanza.
Wrote ESPN’s Dan Rafael, “Maybe some things are just meant to be. The script couldn’t have been better written for Banks in his major upset if a screenwriter had taken on the task.
He was supposed to fight Mitchell in July, but the fight was postponed when Mitchell suffered a hand injury in his exciting third-round knockout win against Chazz Witherspoon in April and couldn’t be ready in time.
It was around the time that the fight was postponed that the late Emanuel Steward, the Hall of Fame trainer and HBO announcer, first became ill.
Steward had taken Banks under his wing when he was a 15-year-old amateur. Banks learned to box from Steward, spent time living with him and considered him a father figure. When Steward died in late October, his No. 1 fighter, heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko, needed a trainer for his Sept. 10 title defense against Mariusz Wach and he turned to Banks, who had been in Klitschko’s training camps for years with Steward.”
“So Banks was training Klitschko for his eventual win against Wach at the same time that he was preparing to fight Mitchell. While in Klitschko’s camp in Austria, Banks, 30, of Detroit, was doing four training sessions ...
Wladimir Klitschko has successfully defended his undisputed heavyweight championship of the world tonight in Hamburg, Germany. After a tense and entertaining fight, Klitschko knocked Kubrat Pulev out in the fifth round with a sensational left hook.
The fight turned out to be completely different than the usual Klitschko fight. While there was some holding, it didn’t overshadow the fight. Pulev was able to have more success offensively in the fight than most of the champion’s former opponents had. But his offensive style and his unwillingness to keep his hands up played right into Klitschko’s hands.
Pulev started strong. He did a lot of work on the inside and it looked like he stunned the 38-year old Ukranian halfway through the first round. Just as we were figuring out whether Klitschko was hurt or not, the champion landed a crushing left hook sending Pulev to the canvas.

Sports is often viewed from the past and present perspectives. We debate past histories and present records on a constant basis. However, when the FUTURE perspective is addressed, we often disagree about what is the unknown. With athletes retiring at an early age and moving from team to team, their future is UP 4 DISCUSSION.
Tonight, we also have the privelage to be joined by ex-NFLer and current entrepreneur, Jovan Haye, to gain perspective on retirement.
- From your perspective, is it possible for an athlete to become burned out from playing their favorite sport for so many years?
- Is it's worth doing something, even though you are no longer passionate about it?
- Do you think some athletes, that retire early, come off as crazy or ungrateful to walk away from the opportunity to be a professional athlete?
- Why do you think sports fans overreact over free agent signings?
- What top free agent signing do you think was not worth signing?

Since early childhood, William David Spencer has been in love with books and, particularly with mysteries and adventure stories. Captivated as a small child by the ingenious tales of Joe Pooh, Teddy Bear Detective, spun out by his endlessly inventive older sister, the young boy was left bereft of sister and story at her untimely death when he was only six years old. Books, poems, music and lyrics were his solace and he has been deeply immersed in creating them ever since.
Born and reared in urban central New Jersey, his life was changed by two events; his encounter with Jesus through Inter-Varsity Christian Fellowship after a thought-provoking hospitalization in the summer between his final year in high school and first year in college, due to cutting too much weight as co-captain of his high school wrestling team; and the impact of a riot in his birth city, Plainfield, N.J., during the racial upheavals in the late 1960s. The second event propelled him into a lifetime of urban ministry taking the healing message he’d learned from the first event to the streets of Plainfield, then to Newark, Philadelphia, back to Newark/New York/Jersey City, Trenton, Louisville, Kentucky, and today to Boston, where he trains ministers, as professor of theology and the arts, with Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary’s Center for Urban Ministerial Education. Along the way he played in a band during the Jesus Movement, performing at coffee houses and festivals, helped establish a school for store front pastors, planted a storefront church he continues to co-pastor, helped create an academic journal and a book line and has had many adventures himself in city ministry.

Author David Robert joins me this week to talk about his book: Wanderlush.
When David, a self-proclaimed anxiety-ridden introvert, convinces himself he’s dying of cancer, he invites his delightfully unpredictable, -popping, chardonnay-swilling mother on a series of international good-bye vacations. By doing so, he unwittingly opens a Pandora’s Box of hilarious and humiliating events that will test just how far they are willing to go to get a laugh.
David knows the trips will be anything but boring because he and his mom have been causing a scene for as long as he can remember. He describes her as a cross between Bea Arthur and Karen Walker from Will and Grace, and she is notorious for bending the rules.
But nothing can prepare him for escapades that include digging his mom out of a rain gutter in Costa Rica and being dragged across the Arabian Desert by a psychotic camel named Forrest Hump. As the vacations unfold, David discovers that although he and his mom are having the time of their life, she is ready to share a secret that will change everything.
