Matthew Macklin's podcast with Kal Yafai is a good listen.

Comes across as a really good bloke and certainly has his head screwed on. Huge fight for him this weekend against Chocolatito Gonzales too. Career defining and he said financially he will be setup for life after this one.
Puts the us money into perspective if 2nd (or 3rd?) on the bill on a non PPV fight is life changing. Good on him, always seemed like a good lad.

Really, really enjoy these, listen to most of them and will buy Tris' book on the back of them.

Sometimes feel as though a more standard approach would add something though. With some, Tris will skip how they got into boxing which is something I always enjoy.

Also, for the life of me I dont understand how he skipped how Barry Jones got his license back. That took a lot away from a great listen, for me.

I could quite easily sit and watch 3plus hour video interviews going into the full background of each fighter...

Will give this a listen later.

The second fight against Froch was one of those where I was absolutely certain of the winner despite it being tipped as 50/50. Kessler to me in every part of the build up looked like a fighter who's heart wasn't in it and seemed resigned to losing before a punch was thrown. I don't know but there didn't seem to be any fire in him.

Have loads of these to catch up with, no commute means I am listening to less podcasts.

Looking forward to the Kessler and Andy Lee ones. Both good guys.

Same. Loads of the BBC podcast with Bunce and Costello to catch up on too.
I just read that Bunce and Castello are doing a classic fight watch along with famous fighters.

First episode is SRL discussing the Hearn's fight, they are also going to have Hatton on to watch the Tsyzu fight.
