Episode 939: The Fight We Deserve, Mayweather’s Long Term View, Old White NFL Men, Spartacus Learnings
It’s the greatest combat sports event in history… so why are people saying Conor McGregor’s won already by getting this fight off the ground, regardless of what happens in the ring – surely that doesn’t sound like winning talk?
The final rev of the engine on the @mcgregorsfast conditioning program tonight!

Andy Lee joins us in studio for a reasonably brutal summation of the likely outcome of Floyd Mayweather vs Conor McGregor in Las Vegas, Nevada on Sunday morning, and Ken, Murph and Mark all wrestle with the idea that we’ve fallen victim to the hype.

Ken will be reporting from Vegas for the rest of this week, but until he arrives stateside we must yield all further ‘Merica updates to the man himself, US Murph, who joins us to talk about the blackballing of Colin Kaepernick by the perfidious money-men of the NFL and how the former 49er may have helped to start a movement in US sport.

Plus there’s Frankie Boyle becoming the world’s best boxing analyst, Paulie Malignaggi getting what he deserved, Spartacus learnings, and we answer the question – how loud is the sound of one person seething?
Don’t get me wrong, I think someone trying to beat possibly history’s best defensive boxer purely by being a mad cunt is actually beautiful
