|Watch Boxing TV Alert: “The Game 365: All-American Heavyweights”
By SecondsOut, special to Doghouse Boxing (July 30, 2012) Doghouse Boxing
By SecondsOut.com on Doghouse Boxing. In an all-new episode of “The Game 365,” which premieres tonight at
7:30 p.m. on MSG+, host Fran Healy sits down with Michael King, the
founder of King World Productions, which popularized syndicated
television programs such as “Wheel of Fortune” and “Jeopardy,” to talk
about his new venture “All-American Heavyweights.” “AAH” is a new
program designed to re-establish heavyweight boxing in the United States
by recruiting, educating and training America’s young athletes who
previously focused on other sports to become the next generation of
amateur, Olympic and professional heavyweight boxers.
“We’re not saying that if you’re an All-American football player or
basketball player, and you’re six-seven or six-eight, that you’re going
to be a great boxer,” King tells Healy. “Our thinking is, what a great
talent pool to work from.”
One of the program’s featured athletes, Dominic Breazeale, will
represent the United States at the London Olympics starting Wednesday
when he faces Magomed Omarov from the Russian Federation in the Super
Heavyweight division. Breazeale, a former quarterback at Northern
Colorado, talks to Healy in the episode about his transition from the
football field to the boxing ring.
“Being a quarterback and working in the pocket was great
(preparation),” Breazeale tells Healy. “In the ring, I’m always moving
my feet and I’m never in the same position, and being able to be aware
and alert about what is coming at me is a big help.”
The new episode also features an interview with Henry Tillman, a
trainer at All-American Heavyweights and the 1984 Heavyweight Gold
Medalist at the Olympic Games in Los Angeles – the last US boxer to take
home a Gold Medal in the heavyweight division.
