Episode number 200 of Enswell Boxing and it couldn't be any more special. Al is joined again by friend of the show - Irish heavyweight boxer Niall Kennedy.Its no secret that boxing is the most uncompromising, unrelenting and sometimes unfulfilling crucibles of all.Indeed, its no secret you need to be disciplined, dedicated and sometimes deranged to want to be knocked down, trodden on, kicked, cut and bruised. Beaten and battered to the point where every ounce of your being pleads, screams...'ENOUGH'.And it's definitely no secret how dark the boxing world can be, with a cast of characters and bad actors lurking in the shadows willing, waiting and wanting to feed off boxers given half the chance.What may come as a surprise to some, is that amongst all of that you will find some oof the most genuine, honest, kind-hearted and REAL: people - of which no 2 are the same.Most will mask and hide all of those qualities to play the role of the Good, The Bad and the Ugly. Its what they have to do to survive.And then.........you meet Niall Kennedy!Have a listen as Niall's coach Pascal Collins and stablemates Spike O'Sullivan, Stephen Ormoind and Ray Moylette regale fond memories from the big man's career that saw him win an Irish Title, Massachusetts Title & New England Titl and in 2020 the WBC Hero of The World award for frontline services throughout the pandemic. We're also joined on this episode by former opponent Allen 'The Savage' Babic AND Niall's former teacher Grainne Mulcahy.🟥 Off The Ball: https://tinyurl.com/djkwamab🥊 enswellpod.com/🟪 Donate4Daithí: tinyurl.com/dsbhp2vySponsored by:🎩 VIOLENT GENTLEMAN: violentgent20.com/☘️🥫 Irish Power Energy Drink: tinyurl.com/fc3cjbd5🥊 Top PRO Boxing: tinyurl.com/ac45p3fa Hosted on Acast.

Barely minutes after her titanic battle with Amanda Serrano. Still bleeding, still taking huge gulps of air with adrenaline still coursing through her body - Katie Taylor seemed to be the only one able to find words to sum up what we had just witnessed. Boxing fans have a tendency to over hype, off allowing hopes & expectations to become unrealistic big fights.Not this time! Not this fight!This one reset the bar!At a time when the reputation of boxing & Irish boxing truly needed somebody to remind the world that its not all bad, Along comes Katie Taylor….AGAIN! In this episode Al looks back over an unforgettable night & tries to find his own words & is joined by Joining ‘the Mammy of Irish boxing’ Anna Moore. Almost every young Irish boxer who has worn the green vest will know Anna, who was team manager for many of Katie’s biggest and best days in the Irish vest (including 3 world championships). And listen to one of the most informative, straight talking & real boxing pods out there: https://tinyurl.com/ye24jk3x for some interesting Team Serrano facts that got ‘lost’ in the hype.AND listen to Wymac, daughter of Al’s great pal & mentor Wayne McCullough as she performed at the NFL Draft recently: https://tinyurl.com/43bbnrd7🥊 http://enswellpod.com/Sponsored by:  🎩 VIOLENT GENTLEMAN: https://violentgent20.com/☘️🥫 Irish Power Energy Drink:https://tinyurl.com/fc3cjbd5🥊 Top PRO Boxing: https://tinyurl.com/ac45p3fa Hosted on Acast.

Podcast Update & Best of Irish Luck and Love for Katie Taylor
It's rare that boxing can make the back pages of reputable news papers around the world, its even more rare when it stretches across the front AND back pages multiple days in a row. Sadly, on this occasion it hasn't been for the reasons the great sport of boxing wants or deserves.This podcast has purposely and intentionally maintained radio silence over this time to allow the dust to settle and indeed to spend time researching to find out the who, what and wherefor's in this whole debacle. Believe it when I say - the tentacles of this story will stretch into areas and places that go WAY WAY beyond boxers and boxing and will open many eyes if not shock.For now, I wanted to take a moment to ensure all the loyal and good people who have followed my boxing podcast journey that I will be back with full length and detailed episodes in the coming days where we will review the recent fights and no doubt celebrate the one true bastion of Irish boxing that is left standing tall - Katie Taylor.🛑 In the meantime please take a moment to click this link: https://tinyurl.com/2p8ek5c7 Subscribe to the YouTube Channel where we will also be bringing you new and vibrant content in the very near future,🥊 And no matter what happens - wherever you arte, NEVER forget: "ALL's WELL THAT ENSWELL..."Sponsored by:  🎩 VIOLENT GENTLEMAN: https://violentgent20.com/☘️🥫 Irish Power Energy Drink:https://tinyurl.com/fc3cjbd5🥊 Top PRO Boxing: https://tinyurl.com/ac45p3fa Hosted on Acast.
