The Last Round and the start of a much bigger journey.
I hear a few roumours every now and again that Ronnie Green is a bouncer, looking at this photo I can see what people would think. But from where I was I didn't see that, what I saw was how big Joe Egan really is. I was so please and proud to be guest on stage with these two famous legends. I meet Joe previous when we went down to Birmingham to spend a day with his friends.
Randy Couture had invited Joe to travel and talk at his recent book shows and interviews. Randy is a great fan of western boxing and hopes that MMA athletes across the world learn and train like boxers and fight with those useful hand skills more in the cage.
I travelled with them from Manchester to Liverpool to see Chris Zorba. His Liverpool Olympia was the next stop off. Two champions, two heavyweights and two actors, both fighters and both having fun on stage sharing stories with the audience. Randy and Joe asked every question at both venues.
Randy just kept on asking for more questions and they all talked for over 90 mins to the audinence. What a treat for us all, yet again.
Thanks to Randy, Joe and the publishers for entertaining us all, you in inspire us all, I had a great day and more was to come.... Two giant gentlement and a life full of martial arts. Western Boxing is an Art.
The Last Round!
