Episode 996: Ireland’s First Female World Boxing Champ, Italian International’s Off-Field Nightmare, Eoin’s Crime Podcast Spin-Off
When Italian international Fabio Quagliarella signed for his boyhood club Napoli, he was welcomed like a hero. But he only lasted one season, and his lacklustre displays ensured the fans turned on him viciously… but they weren’t to know the absolute madness of his personal life at that time.
Intrigued? Well that’s all you’re getting, because Eoin seems determined to launch a ‘Serial’-style Second Captains crime podcast spin-off… listen to our chat with Kelly Naqi, who has written a brilliant piece for Bleacher Report on that crazy year in Naples for Quagliarella, to get the full story.

We also talk to Deirdre Gogarty, the Irish female boxer who became a world champion in the 1990s, and who blazed a trail for a young 11 year old girl in Bray who was her biggest fan, on the eve of Katie Taylor’s world title fight in Cardiff tomorrow night.
Plus there’s the Mystery Man, the meatpacking district, and the chance for you the listener to name our new crime podcast.
