Listened to the Alex Arthur one earlier and It was brilliant, he goes on about how he was making weight for fights and it’s absoloute madness what he put his body through, he come across brilliant tho and very open about everything and eloquent with it!!
Yeah. I've just finished that one.

The weight making stories are scary. Seems like he was lucky he didn't get hurt at some point.

Good episode this one, however I did find Doug rather hectic to listen to at times , what he spoke about however was real intresting.
god I couldn’t listen to him when he was on I think top ranks Overseas broadcast team? Found him incredibly annoying!

Did you enjoy Andy Lee's book? I have been thinking of buying it.
Ye I did, some really interesting stuff in there about his days at the Kronk, Some really interesting characters in that gym and mentions a lot of insights into Manny Steward that are really interesting. I hadn't realized himself and Manny had actually fallen out at one point before patching things up. Some good stuff in there as well about his time in the amateurs doesn't pain the Irish setup in the best of lights.

I'll have a lpok for both.

I think Barry Jones is fucking ace. Didn't Barry Jones fight Acelino Freitas in Doncaster or did I dream that up?

BN had a good Popo interview last week.
Yup, Jones' only defeat and his last ever fight. Dropped Freitas in the 1st round too.

Shit. Doncaster Dome is pretty much walking distance from me. Just BoxRec it and I was here on that date too (15/1/2000). Missed a big one there.

Just a word of warning on the podcast with Tris, I found it a bit frustrating. They covered him losing his licence in depth and then he was just boxing again with nothing on how he regained it. Annoyed me a bit.

Thats going from memory though. Still defo worth a listen if you like Barry. And why wouldn't you tbf.

I only really know Barry by warming to him on BNation, how the fuck did he lose his license before I google it?
