Liked the part where Welch said to spoke to Holyfield, as Evenader gloved up for Tyson 1, and Holyfield raised his fist said "I will prevail" and Welch thought, "he's mad he's going to get knocked out."

Holyfield's self belief was amazing.

The Groves one was excellent. Groves has always been a good talker, and he and Tris had a very good rapport.

Really liked the extra length, (no homo) as well.
Tris Dixon is an excellent journalist. His podcasts are so good.

If you haven't read his The Road to Nowhere book then I strongly urge you to do so. Absolutely legendary. I could just read that over and over again.

Definitely. Super nice fella.

All Matt Christie's stuff is fine too. He just waxes lyrically, there's no wonder that Boxing News get £130 of my money each year, is there? Boxing News has gone from strength since Tris and Matt were at the helm.

I listened to the Barry Hearn one the other day.

At the Start Tris was saying something about having issues with his YouTube channel. Some people not turning up, and lots of abuse in the comments towards the people he was interviewing.

The people that comment on YouTube are weirdos. Even weirder than us lot. Would he a shame if it was causing him problems, but he should just disable them.
