    Yeah he's a guilty pleasure for me! Very offensive but funny and relatable.

    Surprised he went down the football route and didn't just start up his own boxing channel - given the contacts he'll have made in the game through IFL.

    Also, isn't it kinahan now that owns ifl. He bought them out and kept koogs on. Apparently he didn't like helder (bit of a cheek, i know) but kept koogs as the front man.
    Ibremeber hearing this when ifl went full throttle with the boycotting Irish media etc.

    possible mate i dont know. Kugan is clearly a public PR man for him, when it was wanted recently.

    He is extremely knowledgeable about football. I also think he has a son that he trains and hopes he becomes a professional.
    So I can see why.

    But I agree he would have done far better with a boxing channel than a football channel. Football is a saturated market for youtube.

    His youtube channel is Full Core Football 24

    Take Kugan for what he is, a numbers oriented interviewer with inside access you can't get elsewhere. Yes Kugan could press harder but it's one of those things where if he does it all the time he won't benefit from the exclusive access and we lose out it's a balancing act and an issue with news as a whole. There's a reason why people love the Eddie Hearn and Tyson Fury interviews, Kugan is clearly best mates with these guys and it translates to great moments at the expense of serious interviewing.

    With regards to Prince Patel mate Kugan was patient enough for at least the two interviews I watched where Patel was an outright ******* to him. If someone pisses you off constantly you eventually have to let him know, doesn't matter about how big he is.

    One thing that really reformed my opinion of Kugan was how he dealt with Umar after his old tweets emerged. Stuck by him at the risk of harming his reputation.

    Boxing Social is great for pressing certain matters and Seconds Out tends to have really high quality video especially when it comes to press conferences. Behind the gloves is a joke channel that is watched for one reason and one reason only. Rob Tebbutt left Behind the Gloves for Boxing Social because of the road he saw they were going down.
