View this episode’s trailer Listen on your favorite podcast network Apple Podcasts Spotify Podcasts Amazon Music Episode Description In the guest corner, from the Steel City Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania by way of Lviv, Ukraine, with a strong record of 14 wins against only three defeats with eight big wins by knockout,

The “Life’s Tough: Boxers Are TOUGHER!” podcast is hosted by Matthew M. Pomara—boxing devotee, amateur boxer, sportswriter, and CEO of Long Island Boxing Charitied. Pomara is committed to helping fighters battle their toughest opponent—life outside of the ring. Whether it is helping an aged fighter live with dignity or giving a young fighter a chance at opportunity, Pomara’s earnest mission is to share their profound stories and let them know that they are worthy and supported.

A respected authority on the “sweet science,” Matthew is involved with the sport of boxing in various capacities—from boxing writer to ring announcer to helming a boxing charity association.

In each episode Pomara—with his deep understanding of the boxing industry, love of the game, and natural empathy—discusses a specific challenge someone in the sport has had to face outside the ring and how they overcame those challenges to compete or excel in the sport. The iconic fictional boxer Rocky Balboa once said, “You, me or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain’t about how hard you hit. It’s about how hard you can get hit… and keep moving forward.” Every person who has had any modicum of success has had to understand that and live that. Sometimes your toughest opponent is life itself.
