    He's just interviewed Froch and when The Cobra said the word Texas, McCart can be heard saying "yee-haw" in the background. The man's a buffoon. Worthless interviews.

    "Would a prime Carl Froch in his prime beat Canelo". Actual question from him.

    What don't you like about McCart? I've tried to view him as more of a source of comedy in order to cope.

    He's just a brown-nosing suck-up who never asks anything good, just asks moronic stuff. "So Tommy Fury, are you backing Tyson to beat Anthony Joshua?"

    There's an element of brown-nosing to all these youtube channels but he takes the biscuit.

    I agree. His "questions" are often not even questions. They're long-winded, rambling statements that normally conform to the status quo of the moment, so they rarely elicit anything worth listening to.

    Let's be honest. Interviewing boxers is a ridiculously easy job and it doesn't take much to be good at it, but so many fail in doing so. There's never any accountability, though, so they get off. I would say that Andy Purewal from Boxing Social is who I consider the best. He's straight to the point, doesn't stutter and doesn't try to make it about him. There's none of that cringeworthy banter. There's also a mutual respect between himself and the interviewee, which doesn't cross over into that fake pals territory.

    If he wants to present himself as being a big shot could at least smoke a cigar with a band on it, that one in the video looks like a $2 cheapy from the petrol station

    He thinks he's the coolest cat that's ever existed when quite clearly he's not. Certain people have 'it', that natural charisma that you can't learn, Diamante is trying to hard to attain something he fundamentally lacks.

    Boxing Social are the only ones that seem to have given the matter some thought and decided to actually be sports journalists rather than fans with microphones. Far better questions and you are spot on with the mutual respect but maintaining a distance aspect as well.

    He reminds me of one of those extinction rebellion nutjobs.

    White guy with dreadlocks, looking for a police car so he can super glue his nuts to it because the sun is coming up, and we will all frazzle before mid-day!!

    Imagine being that much of a gimp that when getting to the airport you say to someone, 'Get down on your knees & photograph me as I gurn looking into the distance'
    What a cretin

    Don’t quote me ,but I’m sure I’ve read it somewhere. He could still be smoking a cheap shitty cigar.
    Even so he really needs to take those awful extensions out off his hair

    I’d still much prefer Craig Stevens getting the work and it happens he’s a good man who doesn’t need a haircut
