Today, Earnie Shavers makes his home in Las Vegas, Nevada. Recently, he has been making appearances at Caesars Palace and Planet Hollywood on behalf of the autograph company Inscriptagraphs, on the Las Vegas Strip. You can see my picture with the boxing legend above.

Known for his fights with Muhammad Ali, Ken Norton and Larry Holmes among others, his boxing record included 74 wins, 68 of them coming by way of knockout, 14 losses and 1 draw. Today, at age 73, Mr. Shavers says he is in good health. He says his eyesight has been repaired through a medical procedure.

When it comes to his prodigious punching ability, Earnie says, “I had that punch from day one.” It was not something he developed over time. Growing up on a farm, chopping wood and other hard labor was what helped developed his strength and power, which served him well in the ring.

Earnie recently joined us to talk about some of his career highlights, as well as his life today. Featured columnist Jay Bildstein joined me for this segment. You can listen to the entire CYInterview below:

Mighty Coach Leach is Back: Talks His Cougars’ Chances at Bringing Home the Gravy in the Apple Cup, Will They Beat Washington? http://www.cyinterview.com/mighty-coach-leach-is-back-talks-his-cougars-chances-at-bringing-home-the-gravy-in-the-apple-cup-will-they-beat-washington/ http://www.cyinterview.com/mighty-coach-leach-is-back-talks-his-cougars-chances-at-bringing-home-the-gravy-in-the-apple-cup-will-they-beat-washington/#respond Tue, 21 Nov 2017 08:07:39 +0000 http://www.cyinterview.com/?p=20172 Continue reading "Mighty Coach Leach is Back: Talks His Cougars’ Chances at Bringing Home the Gravy in the Apple Cup, Will They Beat Washington?" ]]> After a 35-27 win over Utah on November 11th, the stage is set for Washington State to move forward. The Cougars enjoyed a bye week before arguably their biggest game of the Mike Leach coaching era. If they are able to defeat their state rival Washington this week on the road in the annual Apple Cup, it would be the Cougars’ first Pac 12 North Division Championship in the program’s history. They would then continue on to the Pac 12 Championship.

Washington State head football coach, NY Times bestselling author Mike Leach told us what he thinks is most important going into the game against their arch rival, “The biggest thing is and probably the most important thing is, is don’t get distracted by them. Worry about what, just worry about what we can do. You know, worry about being the best team we can be. And, you know, it takes a certain amount of discipline to do that, but I think we need to continually reinforce that.”

Our 15 minute CYInterview touched on many topics for the upcoming game against Washington and what is at stake this week. Coach Leach also reviewed his team’s progress, his quarterback Luke Falk breaking the Pac 12 touchdown passing record, what he did during the bye week and how he makes a great gravy to go with a Thanksgiving dinner.

The changes have taken the book to a whole new level. A great hangout and one of the nicest sportsbooks in town has now become a must see destination for any sports fan visiting Las Vegas.

Wynn Las Vegas sportsbook manager John Avello had input on the renovations. He says so far there has been nothing but positive reactions to the changes. On why people should come see the new sportsbook and Wynn Las Vegas, he told us, “Because there’s nothing like it in the world. It’s the eighth wonder of the world.” A veteran of Las Vegas’s gaming industry, the oddsmaker catches us up on a variety of topics.

In this, our latest CYInterview with Mr. Avello, we discussed favorites to the win Super Bowl and College Football Playoff, the Oakland Raiders moving to Las Vegas, how the Las Vegas Golden Knights have impacted hockey wagering in the town, what it will mean to have a Super Bowl in Las Vegas one day and many other topics.

Pro Wrestling Legend/WWE Hall of Famer Jake “The Snake” Roberts Sits Down at His Vegas Home and Talks: Sobriety, A Book about His Life, Working to Feel Good about Himself, Reaching Out to Ric Flair, More http://www.cyinterview.com/pro-wrestling-legendwwe-hall-of-famer-jake-the-snake-roberts-sits-down-at-his-vegas-home-and-talks-sobriety-a-book-about-his-life-working-to-feel-good-about-himself-reaching-out/ http://www.cyinterview.com/pro-wrestling-legendwwe-hall-of-famer-jake-the-snake-roberts-sits-down-at-his-vegas-home-and-talks-sobriety-a-book-about-his-life-working-to-feel-good-about-himself-reaching-out/#respond Wed, 08 Nov 2017 04:17:27 +0000 http://www.cyinterview.com/?p=20128 Continue reading "Pro Wrestling Legend/WWE Hall of Famer Jake “The Snake” Roberts Sits Down at His Vegas Home and Talks: Sobriety, A Book about His Life, Working to Feel Good about Himself, Reaching Out to Ric Flair, More" ]]> In his home in Las Vegas, Nevada, pro wrestling legend and WWE Hall of Famer Jake “The Snake” Roberts sat down with me for the first time in eight years. The last time I saw Jake was August 8, 2009. It was the day I graduated from the University of Florida. The wrestling superstar came to my graduation. See our photo above at his home this week.

Today, Jake says he has been sober for six years and has a new outlook on life. Almost a decade ago, the master of ring psychology had spoken about a doing a book on his life. Now, he says he has written 600 pages for a book covering the first half of his life. He plans to write a second book that would take us from there to the present.

Speaking candidly about his life, Jake talks about living in Las Vegas, how he avoids temptations in Sin City, his new pro wrestling school and why he wished he would have pursued sobriety sooner, among other topics.

With the Ric Flair documentary on ESPN, titled Nature Boy, debuting this week, Jake reveals to us that he and Diamond Dallas Page tried to reach out to Flair after his health scare earlier this year. He said they were interested in assisting him with his sobriety. Jake says Ric was not interested in receiving help from either him or Mr. Page.

Conversations with Jake Roberts are always a must to listen to. Our latest segment with him is no different. You can read the highlights and listen to the entire CYInterview below:

On his life today, Jake said this:

“I still struggle with, you know, not really feeling good about myself at times and I certainly give myself a reason to, but you know, enough’s enough and you gotta move on and where I’m at these days, man I just want to reach out and help as many people as I can, because I know that each time I do that I’m closer to getting my dream come true and that’s just to continue to live sober, you know, and to enjoy life.”

The pro wrestling legend does not have a publisher yet, but he says he has written 600 pages for a book covering the first half of his career. He wants to write a second book as well:

“We’ve got about 600 pages ready to go and right now I’m doing my last read. I’ve done about four last reads, but this is my last read for sure. I’m gonna go through it one last time and just check some things out and release it.”

Looking back: With Jake Roberts at my college graduation in 2009

After Ric Flair’s health scare in August, Jake says he reached out to the “Nature Boy” to help with his sobriety, but Flair was not interested in his or Diamond Dallas Page’s help:

“I even tried to help Mr. Flair and I hope Ric can do it. He’s sure going at it with the wrong attitude. He thinks he snapped his fingers, that he can just beat it. There’s a lot more to it. … He’s in the hospital and he’s made that decision to quit drinking. My God I made that decision a million times and he thinks that’s all there is to it. There’s a lot more to it because you know why he’s in that hospital, that disease we call alcoholism is outside doing pushups getting ready for him to come out of the hospital. You’re in a guarded position in the hospital. You know, there’s not a lot of alcohol around.”

Who Does He Think is Playoff Bound? More" ]]> A little more than halfway through the college football season, questions remain to be answered. Is Alabama the best team? What teams still have a chance to make the four team College Football Playoff? Which programs are delivering surprises? And finally, which programs are disappointing?

To answer all these questions, we welcome back college football expert Phil Steele. Phil is the editor of a long running college football preview magazine.

The teams we discussed, that still have a chance to play for the national title, include Alabama, Penn State, Ohio State, Georgia, Miami, Notre Dame, Clemson, Oklahoma, Wisconsin, Washington and Washington State. The ESPN analyst also tells us about two surprise teams, Central Florida and South Florida, who remain undefeated.

Mayweather/McGregor: The League of Extraordinary Fight Commentators Weighs In http://www.cyinterview.com/mayweathermcgregor-the-league-of-extraordinary-fight-commentators-weighs-in/ http://www.cyinterview.com/mayweathermcgregor-the-league-of-extraordinary-fight-commentators-weighs-in/#respond Sat, 19 Aug 2017 06:21:05 +0000 http://www.cyinterview.com/?p=20012 Continue reading "Mayweather/McGregor: The League of Extraordinary Fight Commentators Weighs In" ]]> Panem et circenses Latin for bread and circuses, a concept old as Rome, older I suspect. The notion being that the general public can be mollified through entertainment; think junk food and some kind of spectacle. As an example, this happens for millions of us on weekends in the Fall, when we watch football, while feasting on cheese laden nachos and pizzas or burgers and beer or cookies, cakes, puddings and pies or all of the aforementioned. This while immobilized in perfect passivity on our couches and reclining chairs.

I am no stranger to such gluttony and spectacle. I have participated in both. I still do on occasion, though I partake in less of those questionable distractions/void fillers with each passing year. I grow evermore ambivalent about their value, particularly in our current social setting, which finds us often unable to discern appearance from reality.

That said, I still like a good circus and if that circus takes place in a squared circle so be it. And we certainly have a circus coming up on August 26th when 40 year old, previously retired, undefeated, boxing multi-champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. – the elusive man of the mighty shoulder roll – steps into the ring against 29 year old UFC champion, mixed martial arts phenom, not-a-boxer, Conor McGregor.

The two principals of this matchup have given us a circus already. However, it is not the variety I enjoy. They went on a trash talking tour – performed at a new low level – which seems to speak to the general social entropy we currently find ourselves mired in.

Yes, 2017 is an annus horribilis. It is a year when technological innovations continue at a breakneck pace while courtesy, dignity, self-respect and the ability to trash talk with wit – think the late, great Muhammad Ali – seem headed to history’s ash heap. Perhaps I overstate just a bit, yet I do not believe the manner of promotion for Mayweather/McGregor will prove to be positive for boxing, at least not in the long run.

Anyway, enough with all the sociocultural lamenting and philosophical handwringing. After all, the point of bread and circuses is to provide us with an escape from the quotidian.

To gain insight into what we are about to see and who will win, we assembled a group of individuals who are no strangers to mano a mano combat. In fact, I believe, fairly, we could call them The League of Extraordinary Fight Commentators. They are:

Dan Severn – UFC Hall of famer and Superfight Champion, NWA (National Wrestling Alliance) World Champion, amateur wrestling All-American. Dan has one of the most impressive grappling resumes on earth, spanning MMA, amateur wrestling and professional wrestling. His book, The Realest Guy in the Room, sports a title that says it all. [Photo Above: Top Left]

Gary Stretch – Former British Super Welterweight titleholder. Super welterweight/light middleweight boxer who fought for the WBO middleweight championship in London. Did some modeling then transitioned to acting. Now, a producer/director/writer. Has done a documentary on Ronda Rousey titled, Through My Father’s Eyes. Helped train Rousey in striking in the beginning of her MMA career. Truly a man of many talents. [Photo Above: Bottom Right]

Ric Drasin – Former professional wrestler, professional wrestling teacher and golden age bodybuilder. Was one of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s training partners at the original Gold’s Gym in Venice, California. He has also acted and currently hosts Ric’s Corner on YouTube. Ric has keen insights on training and the art of promotion. [Photo Above: Top Right]

Bobby Rooney – Former professional boxer, current boxing trainer. Bobby was born into the boxing game. His father, Bob Rooney, was also a professional boxer and boxing trainer, who helped Chuck Wepner prepare for his fight with Ali. Bobby is a consummate student of the boxing game, someone who brings ring experience and deep knowledge to any boxing discussion. [Photo Above: Middle Right]

Scott McGimpsey – Has amateur boxing experience, a past filled with athletic endeavors and currently enjoys his passion for one on one competition by playing tennis at a high level. Scott is particularly knowledgeable when it comes combat sports. He is a fan’s fan, not just talking the talk but having walked the walk. [Photo Above: Lower Middle]

Chris Yandek – CYInterview’s editor in chief. Chris has interviewed Art Davie, Dana White, Chuck Liddell, Randy Couture, George Foreman, Evander Holyfield, Lenox Lewis, Don King, Steve Austin, Freddie Blassie and the list goes on and on. His interviews, spanning more than a decade and a half include a who’s who of professional wrestlers, mixed martial artists and boxers. [Photo Above: Bottom Left]

What did our panel, our League of Extraordinary Fight Commentators, have to say about Mayweather/McGregor? You will have to listen to this CYInterview to find out. All I can say is the individuals on this panel are not only knowledgeable but also true gentlemen. I believe any fan will want to listen to this CYInterview in its entirety.
