I liked the 30 stone criminal who murdered policemen with his own bare hands. In my head I was picturing Kingpin from Marvel comics. A big bald, white guy in a cravat and blazer.
Ha ha that might have been my highlight too. Having checked the list of UK police officers murdered on duty, it’s amazing it never made the papers?!

Breaking both his arms and legs!

Talking of murdered policeman I remember when I went to watch Millwall v Bristol City at the den and the Millwall supporters were singing a song about Harry Roberts

That’s the only time I recall 3 coppers getting killed. Millwall fans are a classy bunch aren’t they?

Has anyone else listened to the Macklin’s Take podcast? Finding it really enjoyable, rate Andy Clarke and of course Macklin is a class act.

Had a listen to the Adam Harper pod the other day. Found it really interesting. Feel sorry for him though. Hope he has nothing to worry about in later life but you never know.

The Kevin Mitchell one is pretty decent I enjoyed it, he seems pretty honest about not preparing properly at all which helped contribute to his losses!

Part two of jackonory with Richard Towers next week however and I’m wandering what he’s gonna come up with!!!

Oh god, really? That’ll be comedy gold.

He’s “not about that life anymore” yet absolutely loved telling Tris about all the violence he’d apparently committed.

Mitchell's was good. But like so many before him he was full of excuses for his losses. Whether they are accurate or just his way of dealing with losing a few fights I guess we can never be sure.

Thing is I guess as a sportsman looking back in hindsight at a bad performance you can identify where you could of prepared better and what went wrong a lot easier. Doesn’t change the result however

Kevin Mitchell staying up watching Only Fools and Horses after the Johanneson fight is just what I expected of him.

I bet he was tucking into jellied eels with a whippet on his lap too.

Mitchell was interesting. Didn't make much money, and what he did make he blew on booze and women.

Wishes he hadn't taken the Burns or Katsidis fights, but thinks he should have taken the Khan fight even though it was a poor payday. (speaks highly of Khan and Burns as fighters).

Turned down Brandon Rios as the money was terrible. (John Murray ended up taking the fight, and he said it was shocking in his interview).

Injured his eye in the Prescott fight which caused him vision and balance problems for a lot of his career afterwards.

Just rewatched Mitchell vs Katsidis.

Stacey Solomon, (from X Factor, Loose Women and all that reality nonsense), butchers the national anthem before the fight.
