Kieran Farrell & Ant Crolla was a 2012's fight of the year, but Kieran's fight was only starting

Description

Farrell and Crolla produced one of the fights of the year going the distance for the English lightweight title. Crolla got the verdict and Farrell, who still believes he should have won the fight, instead he slowly slid to the canvas and into a spinning dark void. Thankfully, the injuries sustained by the then 22-year-old did not take his life. They did put a premature halt to a promising boxing career. But his new purpose is to guide, train & mentor the kids in his community - “That gym never would have been there if I hadn’t had the injury” he repeatedly states. Kieran is one of those special characters who has an inate ability to connect with you. His work with children in his gym and his dedication to the community of Manchester has earned him royal recognition in 2013 with a British Empire Medal from Her Majesty the Queen. The recent Celtic Clash 8 announcement seems a long way from its start in 2016 and has grown steadily in just 3 years - so I spoke to Declan Trainor who topped the bill that night in the fight of the year against Stephen ‘Block’ Reynolds. Dec talks about that fight, the years since & announces EXCLUSUVELY that he is making a comeback!! Following the Rio Olympics there were dark clouds that hanging over team Ireland. But they went back to the drawing board and rebuilt and we’re now seeing the bright beginnings of this new Team Ireland, young, dynamic and more comfortable with the media than most of their predecessors. But Tony Browne would safely fit amongst the highest of those profiles. Articulate, cerebral, dedicated and hungry and very clearly focussed now on Tokyo 2020. He joins the pod as he & his co-pilot travel from an early morning pool seission to a mid morning track seission.
