    It starts around 18 minute mark.
    He is so right on a lot of things he said. Great interview. He talk about Klitschko and that pretender of a trainer - Johnathon Banks.
    He talk about Malik as a trainer as well. He talks about Fury vs Usyk. He talks about Joshua as well.

    Bashir is right, Fury cannot lean and bully Usyk like he would any other fighter.

    And he is also right, that Wilder defense is to block punches with his head, and that he can't box a ****, and that he is just a fighter, not a boxer.

    Poor guy, I feel bad for him... He's praising the fighter that fired him.. Ali Bashir was his first coach in the Pros and brought him up in his first 11 fights... he was fired for no reason.. Usyk didn't even give him an explanation... just kind of pushed him out.

    nah, if Chisora could do it, Fury can definitely do it.. Fury's reach is insane.. all he needs to do is take 1 step forward reach out his arms and he will be smothing Usyk... Like an octopus

    Bashir and Ingram have been talking some shite for years.

    Ingram was a huge Fury fanboy until some sort of fallout happened - potentially related to losing access as most of it seemed to be through Peter Fury. Predicted Wilder to smash Fury to pieces several times and that Wilder is a real fighter because he goes in there to do damage - totally contradicting all he used to say about Fury's great boxing skills.

    Bashir thinks Michael Hunter is the best in the division ffs.

    Chisora lean on Usyk ?

    You sound like a guy who said that AJ was "too big too strong" for Usyk

    yeah he had the right strategy... I'm saying Fury will do that, but he is way smarter than Chisora, so he will be able to utilize his size and reach much better.

    Bash been around for a while… I remember him back in Jersey City in the 90’s selling classic fight tapes he’d record on VHS for you to make a few extra bucks. I actually still have some of them in my garage. Was always a nice guy.
