From high school football to the highest peaks of professional sport, cross-town rivalries drive ticket sales and pique interest. There's just something about a town that happens to only be big enough for one sheriff having two of them that makes people choose sides and root accordingly. Sometimes it's geographical, other times ideological, but there's no question cross-town rivalries are popular.
In boxing, New York City alone has had countless rivalries and grudges held between boroughs, ethnicities and so forth. But they're all over in boxing. Some of the participants included Johnny Tapia, Osca de la Hoya, Benny Bass, Rinty Monaghan and more.
If you're ready to explore these various rivalries and hear about the stories behind them, quotes from the fighters and those involved, let Compubox operator/historian Aris Pina and writer/historian Patrick Connor of The Fight City walk you through the best boxing history podcast around.

A Wedding at The Paragraph Ranch ~
Can she piece together a dream on a shoestring?
As new owner of the falling-apart family homestead in West Texas, Dee Bennett is wrangling ways to earn a living, mend fences with farm and family, and manifest her dreams as a writer—all while nurturing the budding relationship with her beau, outdoorsy photographer Max Miller. But when a drop-dead-gorgeous, high-powered handler for a candidate in a key statewide election blows into Claxton, rivalries bigger than politics and football develop.
With stakes running high on the campaign trail, as well as in publishing dreams and love lives, a Bennett family wedding must be attended to. And Dr. Dee, with the assistance of her motley writing-group protégés, must search her soul and fend off a host of challenges to live the life she just might learn to love.
