Rank #2: Macklin's Take #20 with Peter Buckley

Podcast cover
Read more

Peter Buckley is the original King of the Journeymen. He had 300 fights but there's barely a scratch on him. He'd have it with anyone, anywhere, at any notice, only ever turning down one fight and that was because he was injured from a street fight he'd had earlier that day! Naz, Acelino Freitas, he wasn't bothered, names meant nothing to The Professor. And as a 2 weight Area champion he could box a bit too. He keeps a low profile these days but still follows the sport closely and was happy to sit down with me and Matt Macklin and treat us to a very entertaining hour.

Whilst in NYC me and Matt Macklin were absolutely determined to get legendary boxing journalist Thomas Hauser onto the podcast and luckily for us he agreed. The hour we had with him was one of the most illuminating we've experienced on Macklin's Take. Thomas pulls no punches, cares deeply about the sport and its future and bows in the face of no governing body, promoter, manager, fighter or fellow journalist. Plenty claim to "say it as it is" but nobody says it quite like Hauser.
