If you've followed the Knuckles and Gloves Boxing Radio podcast for a while, you're familiar with our boxing history-themed shows. Now we delve into true crime and mystery territory as we investigate the death of professional fighter and Connecticut inmate Charles Newell.

On this special episode of the pod, boxing historians Aris Pina and Patrick Connor join forces to talk about welterweight Charles Newell, who died in 1980 after fighting future champion Marlon Starling. From a life of escalating crime and incarceration to being largely a forgotten footnote, Charles Newell deserves to be remembered better than that.
