Relive ‘Action Heroes’ greatest hits while interacting with them online

How would you like to sit down with an elite boxer and discuss one of his classic fights while you watch it together on video?

You got it.

RingTV.com, in association with Yahoo! Sports, CraveOnline, UStream and Golden Boy Promotions, is providing a unique opportunity to interact with three “Action Heroes” online beginning at 11 a.m. PT / 2 p.m. ET Tuesday (April 5).

Robert Guerrero, Paulie Malignaggi and Michael Katsidis – all of whom are on the April 9 "Action Heroes" card in Las Vegas — will each watch one of their own signature fights with you and host Doug Fischer of RingTV.com and provide blow-by-blow commentary on a live stream.

The fighters also will take questions from fans during the process. Fischer will present questions through Twitter using the hashtag #GBstream on the live feed at ringtv.com/fightnight.

"This is one of my favorite new projects, and I wish technology like this was available back when I was a kid," said Oscar De La Hoya, President of Golden Boy Promotions.  "Can you imagine hearing Muhammad Ali or Roberto Duran talk about their greatest fights while you watched with them during a fight week?

“I'm very excited about the 'Classics' Live Web Stream and giving fans the opportunity to watch a fight while hearing commentary from their favorite fighters as well as interacting with them."

Here’s the schedule:

11 a.m. Tuesday (April 5): Guerrero will break down his unanimous-decision victory over Vicente        Escobedo last November.

11 a.m. Wednesday: Malignaggi will discuss his unanimous decision over Juan Diaz in their second fight, in 2009.

11 a.m. Thursday: Katsidis will talk about his decision victory over Czar Amonsot in 2007.

The “Action Heroes” card is on HBO Pay-Per-View television.
