The Undisputed Champions of Podcasting

September 2019:
Great podcast last week boys, your podcast is still the highlight of my week.

I enjoy you ranking Vasiliy Lomachenko amongst the postwar elite lightweights. Let’s be honest though, Vasiliy Lomachenko is more a natural super bantamweight/ featherweight. Do you feel comfortable ranking Lomachenko amongst the great postwar featherweights? People like Argello, Nelson, Sanchez, Pedroza, Hamed, Morales, Barrera, Pac-Man, etc.
looking at those names it would be a hard night for Lomachenko, he may lose some there. That’s a weird statement as, outside of Roy Jones, Vasiliy Lomachenko is the best I’ve ever seen.

Keep up the excellent work.

Thank you for keeping me company tonight as I climbed Storm King Mountain in Colorado. I was feeling tired and needed some motivation. You gave a heartfelt opinion on the dangers of boxing. As Buncey knows I was ringside when Michael Watson was injured. I know the BBB of C changed the rules to be 24 hours so fighters could rehydrate, I know boxers STILL take risks dropping weight too late in the preparation, yet a weigh-in just before the fight may interfere with the rehydration process and effect the fighters mindset. I’m not saying it’s s bad move to have weigh-ins again just before the fight, I’m just saying tread vary cautiously in this area. I’m confident that the BBB of C will make the right decision. thanks for another epic podcast, you made the climb more enjoyable. Cheers Mike Hills, Aspen, Colorado. USA
