DragonKing Dark Podcast - Assault in the Ring - Episode 271



Two people end up charged with assault for being in a professionally sanctioned boxing match. How can this happen? This is the seedy story of Luis Resto and Billy Collins, Jr. Resto and his manager conspired not only to remove padding from his gloves but also to wear casts underneath. Collins never fought again and ended up dead less than a year later. Resto's life was destroyed and the manager who helped him? Well... this is their story which was documented in the award winning documentary Assault in the Ring. It's one of our 100 darkest moments in pop culture history.
