Boxingtalk recently caught up with former welterweight and middleweight champion Emile Griffith to discuss the highs and lows of his illustrious career and to talk about the debut of his documentary Ring of Fire: The Emile Griffith Story tonight at 9:00PM ET/PT on USA. A film about the importance of tolerance and the power of forgiveness, Ring of Fire chronicles the life of six-time world boxing champion Emile Griffith, who in 1962 killed the then champion Benny “kid” Paret in one of the most memorable boxing matches of all time. Griffith was crowned the champion, but at the cost of another man's life. The tragedy sent shockwaves throughout the sports world as it was the first ring death witnessed by millions on network television and nearly caused a permanent ban on boxing.
