Sports Talk

DAPHNE, Ala. – Sports fans, set your online-viewing alerts to 11:30 a.m. Wednesday for the next edition of the United States Sports Academy’s Sports Talk program.

This week Sports Talk moderator Dr. Arthur Ogden welcomes Drs. Fred Cromartie and Stephen Butler to the show, where they will discuss life for the sport following the aftermath of the latest “Fight of the Century”  letdown, particularly with the likes of Alabama’s Deontay Wilder, the reigning WBC heavyweight champ. Both Cromartie, the Director of Doctoral Studies at the Academy, and Butler, the Dean of Academic Affairs, hail from cities well known for their pugilistic history; Cromartie is a Chicago native and Butler is from Miami. Each was raised at a time and in an environment that placed a major value on the sporting world’s sweet science. To view the program live, visit the Academy’s Google Plus page at

Sports Talk features commentary on a wide range of current events in the sporting world, usually in a panel-discussion forum with Ogden, Chair of Sports Management at the Academy, serving as moderator. That is the format for this episode after back-to-back weeks of one-on-one interviews.

In addition to being available live, the program will be available for viewing afterwards at the USSA’s YouTube site at
