TSL Sports Talk- Henry “Discombobulating” Jones And Racism In Boxing

How many Black ring announcers do you know? Exactly.

Henry “Discombobulating” Jones is a Black ring announcer who hasn’t been able to call a main event despite over 30 years in the game. He shares a fascinating story on the racism he, and other Black announcers, face as they try to get to where Jimmy Lennon, Jr. and Michael Buffer are in the fight scene. Listen in as Mark and Henry discuss a topic that is rarely addressed, yet holds great significance, in a game dominated by fighters of color but only feature a few notable ring announcers of a lighter persuasion.

This is an in-depth, no holds barred discussion about the shady negotiations behind the scenes that consistently mars the great sport of pugilism.
