Ringside: 6pm, Thu, Sky Sports 1

This week we show our respect to one of boxing's biggest chracters, Mickey Duff.

The legendary promoter passed away last week at the age of 84 so not only will we look back on his career but also talk to some of the boxers he guided to glory.

Jim Watt admits that Duff played a huge part in his world title success while our own historian Bob Mee helped the man write his own life story, so who better to reflect on boxing's sad loss.

Looking forward, we have two of Britain's brightest young things in the studio along with their trainer, and one of our best who is also looking after two of the biggest names in the game.

He and his young guns will discuss their careers and their style, while our own up-and-coming trainer Jamie Moore will give us another angle on it all.

And we also look at the growing trend of white collar boxing and find out why an increasing number of people use it to embark on their own personal fitness.

The following stars will be in the studio...

DUKE McKENZIE - Britain's most decorated boxer and former three-weight world champion was one who stuck with Duff throughout his career and will look back at their success

TONY SIMS - He might be training Anthony Joshua and Kevin Mitchell but the Londoner also looks after some young guns, so will show us how two of them are shaping up

JOHN RYDER - He might have been beaten by Billy Joe Saunders but he is already back to winning ways and will show us how he is progressing under Sims

MARTIN J WARD - Was an integral part of Team GB from 2007-12 and is now unbeaten as a professional under the guidance of Sims, so let's see what he's got
