Taylor v Serrano - What a fight

One of the best fights I have ever had the pleasure to watch! Incredible skills and fitness levels! I’m usually a doubter of rematches but I’d watch these two fight again anytime! In fact I’d go to it for sure!!

The absolute best

I am American (born raised and live in Philadelphia). I listen to several boxing podcast including multiple British and multiple American ones. Steve Bunce is the best of the bunch by a landslide. He is the most inclusive, meaning he covers a good mix of British, American , European South American, doesn’t matter he covers it all even more obscure bouts. And more so then just covering them all, he actually has knowledge of the most obscure boxers and one of the best boxing memory’s, Steve remembers details from fights from decades ago and is information is also spot on. Other podcast really don’t compare, and I’m not being biased. He’s also great to listen to and far mor entertaining of a speaker then other podcast host.

Conclusion: Steve Bunce is one of a kind and so is this podcast. Every episode is 5 stars.

Mike and Steve.
I’m a Glaswegian now living in Nashville, Tennessee. Been here 16 years now. I enjoy listening to the show and both your knowledgeable unbiased opinions. US boxing fans for the most part are very casual and most wouldn’t know a Froch from a Fury.😝
With regards to last weeks big fight I predicted an 8 round KO for Canelo and was proved right. I’m a BJS fan though and traveled to Canada back in 2016 to see his masterclass versus David Lemieux. There I met Kell Brook and Kid Galahad as well as Sadam Ali. Big Tyson Fury escaped me but I saw him walking about.
Tell Buncy to stop bashing Caleb Plant’s fan base. I’m hoping they bring the Canelo fight to Nashville and I know at least 2 fans he has.🤣
