    Former WBC world champion Montel Griffin appeared on my podcast.
    He gave some fascinating insight into his career.

    He is a former WBC world champion.

    He talked about his life and career and beating Roy Jones Jr and some controversial goings on behind the scenes for the rematch which he lost in the first round here is the link to the full thing I'll post some clips of him talking about Jones Jr and Toney fights later.

    Can't wait to hear about that Toney fight. They robbed Toney twice and Jones once.

    Antonio Tarver was mate. Nate Campbell and Steve Cunningham have probably been the best ones.

    Got a few good guys lined up in the near future. Buddy McGirt says he will this weekend.

    Jones wasn't robbed he hot Montell twice on the ground. As for Toney fight they were close especially first one but not robberies. I thought second in particular was well earned.
    As Montell said in 4 years he had come from nothing to having 30 amateurs been to the Olympics and beat James Toney.

    Thanks a lot mate. If you give my videos a like on YouTube and few comments be a big boost.

    I haven't spoken with any of them but I could have a fairly recent former middleweight champion on soon.

    Good stuff bro enjoy your interviews....

    If you have Buddy McGirt on I used to train at the same gym with him in Jersey City near the end of his career. His trainer also was mine and taught me how to fight, the late Al Certo.... ask Buddy his memories of working with Al and I bet he’ll have some funny stories.... Al was a real character. I remember Buddy cutting weight using plastic wrap and plastic suits and watching him I actually learned about Albolene which closes the pours and promotes sweating. Buddy’s a really nice guy and he’ll have some great stories.
