Steve Farhood has been around the Sweet Science for 34 years, most of which have been spent as editor-in-chief of “The Ring”
and “KO” magazines.

Farhood works as an on-air analyst for Showtime’s “ShoBox” series, “Showtime Championship Boxing,” and the syndicated
“Broadway Boxing” series. He also writes a column and features for “Boxing Monthly,” for which he serves as associate editor.

“My work on ShoBox has been so much fun,” Farhood said. “I love watching prospects develop, and since its inception in 2001,
the series has showcased a handful of future world champs. And besides, what else is ever going to bring me to places like Concho,
Oklahoma, and Lincoln City, Oregon?”

Farhood assumed command of “The Ring” in 1989, when London Publishing bought the title. “The Ring” subsequently regained much of
the luster that was lost during the magazine’s financial struggle in the ‘80s. Farhood resigned the position in September 1997 to pursue
other interests, specifically in the broadcasting industry.

In 1980, Farhood launched “KO” magazine.

A ringside fixture at big fights, Farhood has served as an on-air analyst for ESPN, SportsChannel, Top Rank Boxing,
and "Heavyweight Explosion," and regularly contributed to the USA Network’s “Tuesday Night Fights.” He also worked for five years as
CNN's boxing correspondent,and has contributed to boxing broadcasts on Fox and CBS.
