It seems that boxing podcasts are ubiquitous these days. Wherever you turn, it pops up a podcast, never heard of before. These broadcasts, for the uninitiated, tend to be largely opinion media outlets, with hosts often telling listeners “how it was”. To be fair, some of these efforts are quite good, while others leave something to be desired. The Inside The Ring The podcast is unique in that it essentially offers high-profile boxing discussions that brave fighting fans can appreciate. Think of it as an advanced math version of boxing. Those who love fighting games will love it Inside The Ring.

All of this is mainly due to host Lucas Ketelle, being a wool connoisseur of sweet science. “I live sports,” he told me in a fascinating phone interview. And, as if to demonstrate how dedicated he is to boxing, this man is now a published author. Ketelle’s new book, Inside The Ropes Boxing, was made the round between the fans approved. “A lot of my books are about delegation of power,” he told me. The book is certainly a work that focuses on a unique aspect of the world of fighting, but then Ketelle approaches the sport of boxing through a unique perspective. “I am inspired by people who make their own way,” he says.

And boxers make a path for themselves as few others do. A hard day at work for a boxer is a VERY hard day at work. Indeed, a bad day for a boxer could be his last on earth. It’s a serious business, one that Ketelle takes really seriously. “I was boxing in my twenties to get something out of life,” he said of entering his fighting game. Realizing that he did not want to be professional, the young man sought out himself, as well as many people. “I wanted to get my hands on something,” he said, “but I didn’t know what to do.”

The answer came, as answers are often due, unexpectedly. The match between Bernard Hopkins-Chad Dawson is about to end. Ketelle thought “I’ll buy this.” The controversy stemming from that duel got Ketelle engrossed in blogging. And, in a sense, the provoking incident that the man was looking for. “Maybe,” he thought, “I could be a boxing writer.” Now, with a successful book along with her successful podcast, Ketelle no longer has to wonder. As he himself said, he loved boxing from a young age, but hated business. Thus, a job that could prove to be beneficial for those who want to enter the sweet science field on their own.

After all, boxing is much more than what happens in the ring. That’s something Ketelle can personally attest to.
