Episode 1334: Heavyweight Picture, Fury’s Redemption Road, Eamon McGee Still Kicking It With Gweedore
Deontay Wilder was the champ, and the favourite going into this weekend’s World heavyweight title bout, but Tyson Fury emerged with the plaudits and the praise, if not the victory, after their heavily disputed draw in Los Angeles.
Legendary boxing commentator ‘Colonel’ Bob Sheridan joins Eoin and the42.ie’s boxing correspondent Gavan Casey to discuss just how ‘disputed’ this draw was, Fury’s outrageous comeback from drugs, PED busts and humongous weight gain, and what fight they want to see next in the Fury-Wilder-Joshua triumvirate.
Had Fury winning 115-111, but if you score two unanswered knockdowns you’ve every chance of pinching a draw — fecking maths. Judge who gave Wilder the nod should be brought out back and shot. Fury’s Undertaker moment in the 12th a fitting metaphor for his last three years.

If it’s December then it must be Ulster club football final time, and yesterday we were given a doozy, as Gaoth Dobhair became the first club from Donegal to win their provincial title in over 40 years. The most heartwarming thing in all of club GAA is the old county-man proving he can still kick it at club level, and Eamon McGee tells us just how good being that man is.
Plus there’s the super-mario-kartification of football, lazy west Clare cattle farmers, and unbelievable comebacks.

City’s form puts all the challengers under unbearable pressure. Do Liverpool have the nerves of steel to respond? And does there come a point at which repeated doses of luck crystallises into something more durable? https://t.co/WTOjGk39Es pic.twitter.com/9cv26JHx6Z
