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
Without pointing at Mitchell in particular, I think there is much more to fighters not being able to accept their losses.

I have enjoyed every one l have listened to so far. But l am not interested in listening to Towers ll. There were enough tall tales in the first episode for this lifetime.

The fact he’s been asked to do a second one seems to have validated it all in his head and he’s turned up the gangster bullshit to 11.

It’s cringe as fuck.

Won't be going there.

Just started listening to the Yaqui Lopez pod. There's a few laughs in it. Tris is pissing himself laughing at one stage and so was I.

The Steve Collins pod was a good listen. His comments on Freddie Roach were particularly interesting.
What did you think about his comments on the Camara and Morgan fights? (Think I have the right fights).

He won both by ko in the third, but said he feels bad because neither guy got a fair shot. Wouldn't say more in case he ended up in court?

Pressured into taking a dive maybe?

Yeah, good question. That he didn't seem to want to elaborate made me wonder all sorts of things.

Perhaps the answer can be found in his book?

Don't think so. I am sure he joked he was going to release another one when he dies with all the real scandal.

I’ve mentioned it before in the thread but I’d really recommend the Macklin’s Take podcast.

Macklin & Andy Clarke make a good team and they’ve had some great guests. Latest one is Peter Buckley, which is well worth a listen.

Will need to check it out.

I listen to the TKO one with Carl Frampton. It's pretty good, not as in - depth as Tris Dixon, more lightweight. Fun though, with good guests and insight.

Really enjoyed this episode, one of the best episodes in a while,
Just listened. Was very good, a likeable guy, with some good stories.

I always thought Chisora must have some kind of "issues" and it sounds like that's the case. Even if he doesn't specify what exactly.

All the Klitschko stuff is interesting.

Oh, and if big Don reckons he can take Haye in a boxing match then I say get it made. Maybe Haye is so shot Charles gets the win. :stir

The Don Charles one is great. Halfway thought Colin Hart now. Really top class, covers every big name basically and amazing anecdotes with them.

Charles has some respect for David Haye but no love. Said something along the lines of "one day I'll get him."
