“Bad” Brad Berkwitt retired from the US Navy (September 2006) with his 20 years of Honorable Service to our country, and was honored in a Retirement Ceremony held in the Pentagon.
During his childhood, he fought as an amateur boxer for three years (80-83) out of North Miami Beach, Florida. He also is the successful Author of the boxing book: Boxing Interviews of a Lifetime. Brad’s passion for boxing which he credits his late Father Alvin Berkwitt, started in 1975, and to this day, is just as strong.
On top of his CEO duties, “Bad” Brad has appeared many times over the last 12 years on News Channel 8 Sports Talk TV Show with Host Glenn Harris, that is viewed in Virginia, West Virginia, Maryland and the District of Columbia.
Over the last four years, “Bad” Brad is now doing one show a month on Sports Talk because it has become a very popular segment when he appears to talk about the boxing world. He also has been a guest on ESPN Radio and various other radio shows throughout the country.
His nickname “Bad” came from fellow Author and Boxing Ring Announcer, Henry “Dis-com-bob-u-lating” Jones in 2000 and has stuck ever since. In Henry’s words, “I gave him that nickname because he always stands up for what he believes in, and the fighters truly respect him for being so positive in all of his interviews.”
In 2013, “Bad” Brad followed in the footsteps of his late father, Alvin, starting an acting career that has already seen a level of success. Brad has done a reading for a play and is auditioning for television, movie and stage work.
Outside of boxing, he is an old time movie and music buff who was probably born in the wrong generation. His love of the classic singers along with the newer ones such as Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Nat King Cole, Dame Shirley Bassey, Chuck Brown, Rick James, Al Martino, Dean Martin, and French Diva “The Little Sparrow” Edith Piaf to name just a few, truly do set him back in a time where singers really sang some great standards.

Geno resides in New England and began covering boxing in 2004. In 2005, he was hired at Ringside Report and has been there ever since. Moving up from Lead Writer to Managing Editor, Geno has made the most of his stay. He hosted a popular mailbag, created “The Boxing Show,” an Internet TV Show with former 3-Time Champion, Jose Antonio Rivera, and has been featured in many publications. He was interviewed on Fox News, featured in USA Today, and assisted a filmmaker to create a documentary on Mike Tyson.
In 2007, Geno began his own horror site called “Scaredstiffreviews.com,” covering the obscure as well as the popular films of the genre. Geno, a filmmaker, was able to make his way into the horror world through his website, achieving distribution for his first two movies: EVIL AWAKEING (2002) and RISE OF THE SCARECROWS (2004), both released through Tempe Entertainment from 2008 through 2009.
Through the success of his first two films, both selling incredibly well and establishing himself in the film business, McGahee got investors for FAMILY SECRET (2011), a suspense/mystery/slasher filmed in the summer/fall of 2009, featuring established actors, professional equipment, and a talented crew of people, released in 2011 worldwide.
McGahee was recently invited to be part of the MADMAN (1982) re-release DVD, being interviewed about the impact the film had on him as a filmmaker. He was interviewed in May of 2010 and it will be featured on the DVD.
Geno has had a busy couple of years, filming SCARY TALES, an anthology in 2010, SICKLE in 2011, and being hired to direct a western drama “THE COWBOY AND THE TAVERN” filming in 2012. McGahee has been in high demand in the indy film world, and hopes to make it to that next level in the near future.
McGahee got into boxing when Mike Tyson came onto the scene in the mid 1980s and has been hooked ever since. He wishes that championship bouts were 15 rounds again and that the heavyweight division will get interesting again.
