The 2016 Olympics aren't over yet, but we have a pretty good grasp on how this year's boxing went in Rio. Would you call this year's Games a success for boxing? Will any of the medal winners this year emerge as stars?

Over the years there have been a ton of great stories about boxing in the Olympics. The teams, the characters, the controversial incidents... This week on Top Men Boxing Radio, that's what the show is all about. The 1976 and 1984 U.S. Boxing teams, the origin of boxing in the Olympics, countries that seem to dominate the sport at that level, and much more -- all on the menu for this week. So listen in as Compubox operator and historian Aris Pina and boxing writer/historian Patrick Connor of The Fight City guide you through it all.
