This week’s BronxTalk on BronxNet features an interview with Bronx boxer Iran ‘The Blade’ Barkley, who has an amazing personal story about winning boxing championships and then living for years on the streets.

Barkley opened up to host Gary Axelbank, explaining how he became homeless, how it felt to win the Light Heavyweight title in an upset of Thomas Hearns in 1988, what it means to him to be named to the Bronx Walk of Fame, and more.
