Madison Square Garden is still a beloved East Coast boxing venue after over 120 years and several iterations. This weekend, Terence Crawford takes on Felix Diaz at the venue, reminding us that some of the biggest, most exciting and most memorable fights have taken place at The Garden.
Muhammad Ali's name was chanted through the building's rafters, while little guys like Kid Chocolate and Tony Canzoneri made regular appearances in the 1930s. Henry Armstrong, "Sugar" Ray Robinson and Jake LaMotta all shed blood in The Garden.
This week on Knuckles Gloves Boxing Radio, CompuBox operator Aris Pina and writer/historian Patrick Connor talk about the outrageous, important and unbelievable fights in Madison Square Garden history.
