Great boxing chat

Highly recommend if you’re a boxing fan. Varied content from current issues to real life accounts of the sport.. from the boxers, to trainers, cornermen and managers to name a few.
Andy Clarke is without doubt the best in the business at what he does, nobody in the business articulates boxing topics so well and his dry sense of humour adds to his qualities. Irrelevant he’s never been a fighter, he understands way more about the game than many that have fought. A complete wealth of insightful knowledge.
Macklin is also brilliant and talks so well - been there and done it at all levels and gives great insight into the life of a fighter.
Both compliment each other so well, the best boxing podcast out there for me.

Fun and varied content

Great podcast with loads of great guests and so much boxing knowledge from everyone involved. Something for everyone in the episodes from the hardcore boxing fans to people who are looking for something that’s easy to listen to that’ll make them laugh. Favourite episodes include the Jon Pegg, Kalle Sauerland, Nate Campbell and Peter Fury ones
