This week me and Matt make British podcast history and bring together two of the most agile boxing brains in the country.Do you remember that scene in Heat when DeNiro and Pacino come face to face for the first time? Well it’s exactly like that only with much less hair and much more nonsense.On one side of the table we have the Birmingham Scorsese, aka Jon Pegg, and opposite him the Cardiff Philosopher King, also known as Barry Jones. A number of topics were covered, some serious, some not so, but all 100% boxing.
