Episode 37: Lou Duva

Lou Duva oversaw the career of 19 world champions in his boxing career that spanned 7 decades. Along with Bob Arum and Don King, he was perhaps the biggest name of boxing outside of the ring throughout the 1980s and 90s.

Duva was the hardworking son of Italian immigrants and he built a business dynasty from scratch. Famous for his tough, rugged exterior, Duva was never shy to hop in the ring during melees and brouhahas like he did in Mayweather - Paziena and Bowe - Golota.
