Well they say. But i you get into the boxing ring a got ready to walk out of the dressing room and the only told me. Then they said the three knockdown rules have been waived and it broke my heart because if i knocked him down three times they can still say is he gets up and run. He can still go on and win the fight and so i went into the ring if i get him down he was going to have to stay because i come down twice. He just run and say he won on points. And so i got in the ring. And i lands some punches to the side in the side in the stomach and i use my job kept my sight and then finally about the tenth around things start to open up in orlando great hand and only then. I knew i could really get him. Hit him with a second right here and right on and dropped him he was out. It was a miracle. If i tell you i knew it was going to happen. I'd be lying. But i knew i was putting the punches in the right place to make something like that happen. How was that fighter different than when you fall frazier a this time. I have to be and think i didn't would ratio. I didn't have to think. All i did was just don't power but then when i thought degrade mohammed ali realized the power went out so i had a second chance to help power and thought that made it different. You remember loose.

Forty eight with him. He thought you were forty three. So he said if you look at george foreman's career his jab gets better with age.

Or since seen a boxer do what he did and he said that when he would spar with you you would bring guys in. They'd have ten of them and they just keep and they would run them in for a around these. He said i've never. He said he was in his forties. Michael and he was having these guys but he would stay there and fight final and he said he would fight until his body was relaxed and he said i've never seen a fighter so incredibly relaxed. How do you think you achieve. That was that conscious. I knew that if you If you dedicate your life to the conditioning took in boxing whatever someone would try to do to the ring and duty you entering. I would have already done to myself outside the ring and i realized been prepared for the worst can save me from the worst in the ring and i was prepared so when they brought it on. I was relaxed like here. It comes it's funny to use your words because that's what lou savary said. He said you were thinking man's fighter at the end because you fought with your head and you have to think after awhile you just no matter how tough you are there. Someone tougher everything. I read about you. Is that george foreman. The personality sort of changed when you came back in eighty seven eighty nine. People wanted your face on mufflers. They wanted your face on everything the early writings about you. The two words they use aloof and antisocial. I think that's even on your kapadia page aloof and antisocial. And they say that that. Was you being like sonny liston being a tough guy but then you became this lovable. George big george that everybody loved was that a conscious change or were you maturing or were you happier sunday. Listen was my role model. I'd seen the way he treated people. He acted this way. I'm gonna just to take the champ world. That's me and i mean i was definitely a bad guy. You and i tell people you saw the best of me and the ring. I was worse outside the ring but the second time to be dead and rescued. No one else believes you all year. Yeah but ours there to get a second chance to live and hug your mom and be with your children every morning you wake up boy i gotta got how some fun right and it changes you you. You're not putting on you love life and that's what happened to me. I love life and the greatest part of life people people. that's life. I love people long before the grill. People wanted you attach to their product because other people would buy a product if your face was attached to it. Why do you think that is. They trusted me. And i trusted him. And i'll tell my kids. Now you may not be the toughest tololo to strongest person in the world but you can be the candidate human being alive and when you are everybody wanted to be a part of it. And that's what i was. I had become kind because ten years out of boxing. I'd walk around. I thought you had to be famous and rich to get something people would give me on like a steward flight attendant. Say hey big. You'd have this big a seat. I can give you the meal but you can have it. They didn't know who i was. People would stop and give me a boost in my car. And i tried to get bigger and i found out the poor can and i didn't need to be rich for people to be kind to me. I had that opportunity. And then when i got the champ return the favor autographs. Whatever you want from me. I'm just getting back to what because they had given to me.

"Over. But joe continue. Our conversation with george foreman. What's your relationship. What was your relationship over the years with frazier on a personal level. What are the best friends out of the hat. And joe frazier. What you see is what you get. He wasn't three or four different fellows. He treated everyone the same. I love joe frazier. Maybe history was not as kind to him as it could have been well. It's only history doesn't have to be there can so long as i'll fem candice. We don't have to worry about anything. You really can't everyone you'll place in history. Hey it's it's one of those things you don't even get concerned with that. Make certain that you love your family your children your mother and your father if you can do that and didn't have a few grandkids a top it off. That's about all you need. And he had all of that and more. So i can quote you as saying rolls royces. We'll come and go. But i'm not sure who identify with that but really if you get a chance to have some family and when they come and visit your send you call you when you lose a world championship or something. That's about all you can expect to get out of this and then be kind to your fellow man so you can pass the baton on to the young ones to be as bad as well. I asked one of your family members series of email questions as you know what your father like on a personal level and one of the answers was that you might get your head beating on a saturday night but you still. The family still went to church on sunday. And you were told you know you may not can hug daddy quite as close. Because he's got two black eyes and hurts. That's not a story. Every boxer goes through. And they'll you know what about these open. The holidays some of us. Sometimes the box matches to kiss have open house at high school. And i had to go with dog glasses on. Because i couldn't go as george foreman. I told him i'd be there to listen to them. Sing and i had to sit and audience just like every other parent but that's a unique story. I don't think every professional athlete family has a father that is as attentive to the family because the career comes first but there are few had a championship career beforehand and know the failure of being success without being close to family. I had that opportunity to know. Most importantly is get close to your family. Be there for them because these things past they always pass. And you got to make certain that you your family is more important. What was your emotion when mohammed ali passed. I haven't still haven't gotten over. That still haven't gotten over that that's been my friend gracious. Remember i told you is. I'm in the job corps center. Cashes clay fighting floyd patterson and it's a big going on all the kids in the day room and they look at me. You think you're so tough. Why don't you become a boxer. That man came into my life and he's never left out with became friends. People misuse where it all the time but friends. He was part of my life. I loved that guy still love it. Larry holmes larry holmes a wonderful fellow wonderful box on. I look at him as that. Wonderful guy. wonderful box too bad. he had to be. The shadows of mohamed is louis talent now as a me because his family loves to. There's a really nice special on him. I think it's thirty for thirty. I don't know if you've seen it but it's him and his wife and he's kind of going through and he talks about kind of coming to peace with the fact that he was just a little bit later than you guys and that y'all were the golden era and he's comfortable now with his place in all of that. There was talk in at the end of your career. After your last fight that you and him you'd have kind of a birthday bash at the astrodome and it would be almost what happened. It just didn't come to promoters. Came hatheway and i'm still kind of a business guy wished that had happened not really. I didn't want to fight him. But it was one of those things that i couldn't say no to because of the business aspect but enhance item. Glad it didn't happen. i like him. You say you didn't want to fight him. Did you ever have well. I don't know because i'm not a boxer is it fear apprehension. Was there ever a moment. You're going into a boxing match. And you go. I can hit hard but that can hit hard to and to one term. I didn't have all of what you said. All the above. I've fought mohammed ali and africa. All fear all apprehension but a flat. Nothing i said this. I like this when into the fight for the first hand. Because i didn't have my baggage of fears with me. I think that not when i made my comeback to manufacture all those fears again to make certain i'd be ready. I didn't i walked into the ring without fear. And that's the only time you can lose so in seventy seven. You retire for the first time why i had to experience in puerto rico at died in split-second second that vision alive again i saw blurred my hand and four here. I start screaming. Jesus christ is coming alive in me. I didn't believe in those things. I'm telling you i didn't believe in it. They was screaming in the room kissing. Everybody telling them. I loved them and reciting the bible of all things i. They're scared for ten years. Not underdone not box. I didn't even make a fist. Stop preaching on the street corners. Anywhere that people would hear me about the life about god and the great love of jesus christ. I didn't believe in those things. I try to tell myself out of it. You got hit too hard. He canoe canoes to work. Whatever delusion. I wanted it to be all those that but the smell of death. You'll never forget even talking to you is still there. The smell of death is the worst thing up. I was dead and there was no more of me and i just said goodbye to everything. The saddest thing is to leave his life without saying goodbye to my mother. i didn't take about. I had a second chance to live. Tell everybody because you think it's going to happen again. So i started a pretty but after a while people say hey ray of a reverend foreman deigned set i think seventy eight as an because i wouldn't into prisons and hospitals. I didn't want this to happen. But it took over me and they're still in place now ten years later you thirty eight years old. why comeback. well. I'll call it this. Profound own phenomenon occurred again. I was broke. I looked up one day. I didn't have any money. My wife won't pass me pregnant. I said i said what she said. I'm pregnant i said don't you know i don't have any money. She said you'd better go get them. I wish i had been a golfer. I really don't the thing. I know how to do is box and i had to go back to the gym. Three hundred fifteen pounds and get myself ready to fight again. People laughed at me. And i left alone with them. I didn't want to be a boxer again. But i brought up. My jail was still in place right hand. And i hated it but i had to box. I realize god had given me a profession. I had looked at boxing as killian stink That's why that's the reason i quit. I love everybody. But i talked to kill that joy from houston or that never a punch in anger. Come on dude and in return. I learned myself. We're.

So how do you raise your children. When your financials changed your financial condition and you could provide them everything. How do you balance that. And i told them. I was at oxford university in london the other day speaking and as i finished speaking said they were asking a question. I said one thing that frightens me most is that i wasn't able to give my kids my main my main ingredients and he would say hunger and i was hungry. I wanted it. And i'm afraid that some of them may have passed. I didn't pass on the hunger from them and that bothers me but they in this world you gotta find your own. It was my way i was hungry. You would you were discriminated against you hungry. I said that was the crowning. I was crowned hungry. All those things that happened to meet me something to want something. I wanted to be on television. My kids grew up on television a lot. When i was a kid but i leave it to beaver. Heaven zone bedroom. I wanted those things like that. Hunger is something that no one should take for granted. You need a little bit of it but you can't deprive your kids just to prove it. They should have the best schools they should have the best education joy to provide it to them. And and you can't be afraid to provide those things for your children you got just can't let them one. Life is enough george former life. That's enough jim. Foreman a gentleman. Jim brown was one of your heroes. How did you decide that. Boxing was your career and not running with the football. I wanted to be a football player. More than anything in the world. I went to the job corps with ideal. They said if you're looking for a second chance. And i did play while i was there. Well position. defensive tackler. I mean boy. You couldn't stop me when i started. A few of them stopped me. But i wanted to be a football player and there were even college is looking at me. But i'd had one boxing match before and and one season. And as i was getting down spread my fingers to attack. The coach said get those thing goes in. You don't want to hurt those hands. And they said you're going to be a good boxer so the football coach knew that you want to be assistant in the boxing. He said. Put those things in your passion at the time was football. Yeah so they took me in. Just push me into boxing and not just well. I didn't want. I just wanted to be a streetfighter. But that's what it was. But it was all about football all about football that jim brown when i saw that face. I said that's why. I want to be had his mustache scraping my face. So i could grow a moustache. I wanted to be him. Sideburns gone into boxing and you hadn't played football. What do you think at that moment. What would you have wanted to do. What were the passions. All i can say is thank god for sports without sports. I don't think i would have had a dream. I don't think so. So sixty eight you come back. You're a different george foreman. You went to the olympic village. So walk me through the next few years. Obviously the big fights in your mind what stands out or one fight. After another in the olympics i was only had twenty five bucks matches wanna go metal one twenty five and that's not enough experience to become a pro and i explained that to one amount first managers. Dick sadler he said. We're going to do exhibitions. I never i just wanted to exhibitions and keep my fame with ed. go metal. He decided to turn pro. And i said i don't have a lot of fights but one. He was school and winning. I said i wanted to be a great box. Like mohammed ali with the footwork. But he was sending me out there for a knockout like man. He didn't care. And i realized in hindsight. If i had gone for decision some of these hometowns they would have given it to the other guys. He knew that i didn't know that. So i ended up with all those knockouts and nobody thought i could fight because so many knockouts and that contributed to joe frazier given me a shot for the title on my whole life was dedicated over three and a half years to nothing but boxing. I couldn't i didn't date. I didn't do anything all i did was eat. Think about have you ever had that level of commitment again. yeah i had. That was some focus. I don't think anyone should have. You gotta put family in there like boxing boxing boxing. Nothing else occurred to be important at that time but then the second time around. It was all about family three words three times down. Goes frazier when you hear howard. Cosell's voice and you hear those words. What does what does that make you look back and hit a film dongola straightjacket see where it was shocked. Everyone else but thirty six thirty six. I've been knocking everybody. Us all idea was not people out. I was afraid of frazier. But i think there's fear was assisted me and getting back on our soil failure that get a knockout headway championship or the world. The impossible dream. Do you remember the moment when frazier actually did go down in. You're standing there the last man. Do you remember how you felt the first time we got knocked down. I remember thinking boy. He's gonna kill me now. Bob messed up now again. I know that after three times man he'd get back to corner he's gonna get refreshed. She's gonna kill me so i got. I was afraid. I'd knock them down at three more times then. Roughly stepped in. I think it is possible. It's possible i did. His campaign is over in the second round. George foreman heavyweight champion of the world. Oh you think is. I did it then. All of a sudden the world really changed because i started believing. I'm the best fighter ever live of this.

Our conversation with george foreman january twenty six thousand nine hundred sixty seven that i fight. It's only the guy who fought. But if you were watching as you are today the young man who you were. Tell me about that young man what was going through your mind. Well i was at the crossroads. I'd gone to the job corps. As a matter of fact i was in a job corps and the bullion gaz around the boxing match on mohammed ali fighting caches clayton fighting. Floyd patterson mckee look. Did you a big bully. You always picking on people. Why don't you become a boxer. I said okay. i'll show you. That was the reason. I was in the ring. I was a big bullet trying to prove that. I wasn't afraid to be a boxer that they all i was trying to do is show the world. I wasn't afraid. I'm not like that anymore. Why because i'm not afraid degraded. Fear that i have is that my life would be a washout. And i won't tell everybody that you can do whatever you want to do if you put your mind to it. Nineteen sixty eight olympics. What did that do for. You couldn't believe it. I've never had a dream come true. Never had a dream come to. I've heard about people dreaming and waking up one day could swim a boat Even have a horse. I've never a dream to come true. I won that olympic gold medal amend on the platform. You look around not heard a cousin. Tell me once you wanna be anything. Go to sleep. 'cause i was trying to cover up from her shooting hooky. She said don't worry about it. Nothing nobody in his family ever become anything that was on that platform and you could hear the national anthem in the background. I said i must be american. Would that be. And i could hear a voice back saying you never wanna be anything. That was the highlight of my whole athletic career to this day. Really i never had anything like that to happen to me. And i've never gotten over it. There's a story. Ooh that's there's a story about you winning that fight and running around the ring with a tiny american flag. What did that flag mean to you. Strange place olympic village. You wake up every day and you see this guy you walk right up to one guy you think he could be related to me. Speaks another language. Then it doesn't take you but a few days realize the only thing that differentiates you colors. You wear so after one that night. I wanted to make sure the world knew from. America thought took up the flag for good. Look i had in my pocket. Bow to the judge we got you. Then i'll wait. I'm from america. That's all. I wanted to do to make certain everyone knew wells from. Wow and when you wanted them to know where you were from. What did that country mean to you in. Nineteen sixty eight. Oh and i could actually say 'cause you you talk a lot about it Of what could happen to you once. I was put in a little head of the problem in the job corps center. They made me dig a hole. Because i kept fight. Four feet wide four deep. It was the flagpole and they say since you dug the hole you'll be the first one to raid the flag. I didn't even know what that meant. A raised the flag that they would've make certain it didn't hit the ground bone. That was the end. The beginning of the love affair with the flag and so we talked about america but then now on that thing america is the place the home where no one gives up on the underprivileged. That's what it meant to me. They truly said it. And i was the underprivileged going to bed without food down here. I was on the olympic stan representing my country. And they never give up here. This country never give up on his underprivileged. Take me back to you as a child. A young young boy. What's your fondest memory. Oh boy and talk about this all the time. I had among used to have a little bit when i get in trouble. She spanked me where we call it spanking now. Who else dates. But one day. I got in trouble. I said i'll i'll run her a took off. She'll never catch me to spank me. She caught up with me. And i got so afraid i ran up a tree so you never get me shook the tree. She was so strong she was faster and stronger. That's the greatest. Alabama have happened. A mother both strong and faster than i was loving you enough to chase you down. But i loved her. Love was no but that was fun day. Can you imagine some of the children are anyone who have a mother today. Who can bicycles with them. Turn flip swim with them. That's that's as good as it gets. I wanna talk a minute about the church in your your place in the church and the church place in your life but what was the role of the church in your life as a child no role at all as a matter of fact i would. I can remember that macoute. My sister's would invite me said joy you need to come to church with us and my mother would encourage go with your sisters and i didn't want to go. I went to play in once. They said they have food after church. I said what you how much food you can get. A plate took off. I went to church the church for me with the place that insert churches. They didn't even give you a play the afterward a food. That's all admit to me. No more no less. As i grew up i thought it was a shame that people really put themselves in church. Because what are you gonna get out of but more poor and even the songs say. As i didn't want that i didn't. I want to be rich and famous even even then anything about religion. Food is a constant theme throughout your life. Not having enough cooking it cleanly eating well. And that's why the success of the george foreman grill cause i could talk about food as well as the grill and so i figured i was deprived of a lot. I didn't have anything when i was young. It made me to make certain. I have a lot. How did you teach your children with regard to food. Because that's something. I think every parent struggles with the clean your plate club and i had that breed and for good reason. Because if i didn't finish applete get another plate and so i spoke to my kids a lot about that but at the same time i wanted to explain to them that you know you over eat. You can go to forward food. I wanted to let them know that they're not me. They're not going through what i went through. They don't need to even think like that in the mall. So i had to convert them from george foreman spill. But you've been hurt. You read it all. I didn't want to do that because that. That's where food can work against. Hear.

I read it over and over and say renting really as dorma third party a second part. I just can't believe things can happen to a young man like that so you didn't go to high school much less college and i see all these stories of people who are highly successful and i know you don't want to encourage somebody take that track but do you think in some ways that drove you harder like an insecurity or a desire. Because you didn't do that doesn't it this funny story. I'm in the ring fighting for the championship or the world africa zaire fighting mohammed ali. We hadn't spoke with a press conference. You cannot find a photograph of us ever together in africa. We just didn't do it so we meet for the first time in the ring and i'm staring them down if and someone told him to tell me this he said george. You don't need to be here. You are just a kid in high school. When i beat sunny. Listen and i laughed going back to the ring. 'cause i've never spend an hour in high school. You got the wrong with sunny list. Yeah sunday listened was my stablemate. I learned a lot from him. But as you say nothing courage discourage encourage anyone to drop out of school if you look back at my life and say the worst thing i ever did one thing. I've never recovered from as been a high school dropout. Of course i went back. And i got my ged and they were about to go to college and just box and took over. I love someone make it through high school. I realized that something that i admire january. Twenty six thousand nine hundred sixty seven your first amateur fight fifty one years ago. Who was the guy that walked into that room. It was a really been betting a guy who's in the job corps with me. I got him into ring. And i totally got into boxing trainer. You're gonna easily win. I got into ring. And i couldn't believe one hand on the hitting me with something. Mysterious call left jab boom and try to pick him up. I try to throw him out. I tried everything. They left me at the gym. I said i'll never do this again. I lost but doug boras encourage me. Don't give up you stop fighting in the street. You can become a good fighter. But i thought it wasn't for me income that easy where you find in the streets i would. I would streetfight. As a matter of fact. I took up boxing for so purpose of coming back to houston really win in fights without having to hit anyone. 'cause they'd say he's a boxer and they'd run that's all. I wanted boxing for the become a better streets. Later in your autobiographies say you were a troubled youth. What were you troubled about. Well does a lot of things you can be trouble with and you don't even know it in hindsight you know you look back and you sat man my mom. She had to work skin me half to death to make certain that i'd be alive when she got back on. Never was enough to eat not talked about the church the other day we move into house and sometimes the electricity would be on for a couple of days before they cut it off and you cut the light boom. Don't you keep looking at the lights going on and off then all of a sudden. They cut the electricity off. That's the closer that come to electrity in those days. That troubles you because everyone else talked about a television. I can peep through windows in west television. What kids eat and leave food on their plate. That troubles you still bothers. It bothers me only if it came off the george foreman grill. I would look at and i saw a company. A local will the national company arby's and they said take this and posted reposted as many as reposted will be able to get give kids a free lunch. I don't even know anything about the company. I said free lunches for children are automatically get into it and had collected a lot of. I don't even know them but it troubles me. Now that a kid may be hungry. Everyone these at one sandwich. More.

"And after that the irony is you know we did become friends later on and we got to where we could talk on the phone. I could never have them around. That could ever happen around kids in my family. But we did repair sort of reconciling. We did reconcile and so it was ironic. Because this will be the first time. I sit. And i'll try not to cry but the first time i said so. I got a phone call. One day i was in the store. And i answered it and they go. Hello agra hello and he goes. Yeah this is so and so from the corners. Stop stop stop. Stop stop. I'm in public. You will hold on a second. And i start dancing around. I don't know what to do. I'm like wanting to go well. We found your father what happened and they said well you father. Your father's passed away. He died in a fire. And i'm like oh man. I jumped up on my my. I don't know what my wife she's like and people would line is starting to watch for base. Get out and i was like okay. So it's gov and the irony the reason why tell. That story is the reason why they called me. Because i was the only number. He had his phone while because he and i. We went full circle. Man where you know in the beginning we didn't have it was discrimination towards one day. I'm documentaries toward the documentaries. Baked where there was forgiveness where we were talking to win. He passed away and they found the phone. And i was the only phone number he goes. I know who you are. You know. I know the situation but this is the only had while and that was the phone of. I know i never thought this anybody tell right now that is heavy. It's it just. Goes back to forgiveness. Glad that he and i were able to have those conversations. And i'm glad that we i listen to talk to my son. You know on the phone and stuff like that and just the whole reason. I could never be around. It was people that drink he was blackout drunk and he can get really real fast. You can never figured out how it happens. Couldn't have him around. My wife and kids. Because i told him you're bringing back to that as creator and i go this as good or now control down berry. I wouldn't even be and stay for you or me but we did have that conference. We did have that we were talking and he can call me whenever he wanted to always picked it up and talk to them and you know what i mean and and that's what this this this show is about. I mean obviously people being able to find peace people find out i'm finding peace within their selves when they've had tough lives as is really important. You've obviously done that.

There's no way to move PS5 games off the SSD
"See what we discuss first. Let's just go down the list for ps five. So i do want to say if you are somebody who is easily offended please. Just don't stick around. Because i that's not how i work and i get it that we have people that come into the channel for these guys and who maybe are accustomed to the way i talk which is like a lot of jockstrap humor and shit. But i'm not going to sit here and lie to you about any system or at least what i consider lies just going to tell you exactly what i think of them. And what. I what i like dislike and that doesn't mean you will feel the same way. It's just exactly what i think about these things. So just wanna prepare people. Because i said this in the video my thoughts are very divergent. Compared to a lot of other people and i'm not saying they're wrong and i'm not saying i'm right but i'm almost saying that and i do. I wanna talk about this and see if you guys believe a couple of things that were seen is just what we've seen in the past in reflection of hyperbole or if i'm wrong so we'll begin first thing i'm gonna talk about you. Get this system. Ps five we're going to talk about for secret ps five. I'm going to do a video on this if you don't wanna be spoiled about the ps five. Looks like which would be weird. You can wait for the video but we're going to talk about this. I get this thing home. And first of all i just have to say man. I don't care what anybody says. It's fucking ugly the. Ps five is horrendous. It's like a kid who worth fire. Bridgeton could ruin at a router company and then watch lord of the rings like ten times in a. That's just the way it is. Do i care no. I don't care at all. it's it's funny. We can tease it. But i played the dreamcast played. The game cube game cube was a fucking cube. Like that's all it was. It's not these things for an artistic representation. I don't want it to look like a flower bouquet. So i got this thing at home and i opened up massive. It's ugly as fuck. It's got these huge gulf wing kind of things off the top. And i gotta tell you. It doesn't look good no matter where i put it in my house anywhere i. It was bad enough that my wife was looking at it and just being like damn son that is fucking ugly and my wife is. She married me like she's used. She's accustomed right. You're talking to somebody who wakes up in the morning. Fuck and goes into. My boxer takes his pissed. She's had to see that she's had to see ugly. She seen in probably lived through the sins of man just by knowing for a year and even she looks at this fucking thing. And it's like god damn. Can you hide it so i have hit it. That is not a ding on the. Ps five. i don't care. Because i don't think the. Ps four or the ps three. George foreman grill edition. Looked fucking awesome right and the xbox original with its sort of boxing look wasn't necessarily You know awesome so you get this thing home you look at it. You got usb on the front. You have the on the back usb on the fronts usb see as well as which is nice to have a ac- that's where you plug in your dax which by the way people were wondering if digital audio or digital analog converters work. I've plugged in a couple and the have worked on the. Ps five guess on the ps four Was a little little heggie so those worked so you get this thing home you plug it in transferring your old. Ps four stuff to your. Ps is definitely a little bit more cumbersome than the xbox so i don't know why but they have a lot of and this is something you'll see in the overall they have a lot of nested and bouncing menus where you're like over here then you're all the way over here that kind of stuff but got it set up and i moved my stuff over. And it's like you can take your ps four hard-drive plug it into your ps five. And i'm like that's awesome. I plug it in. My aren't showing games are showing saves. Aren't showing. I realize the only way to transfer it the way i want to is to plug it back into the. Ps four sign into that use gamertag. Then plug it into the ps five then. Transfer the stuff that. Ps five then go back to the ps four then plug it in then reload the other gamertag so some some of mine which have nda's on him some of my Games i have to play on a particular gamertag. That's like you know. Just jargon right it's like not me. It's not when i share with these guys because you'll be playing an nba game. That was a little rough. I got it figured out but it was just a little bit weird and just a word of warning man. Don't throw your. Ps four hard drive on your ps five and like reformatted or something because you might reformat another profile that's got some saves on there that you might wanna try transfer over but you get it up and running you look at this and i gotta say man. We've seen this you i. We've seen the videos. It's just a you. I don't care again it's just you i but it's not it's not great it is also missing some things like themes and stuff which i thought was weird because that was a big thing for sony. Those are missing currently But it's it's overall about the same really. I mean like you go up and then it's the same thing you see on the ps four. Your tiles right. The only thing is is they've now got two lines of like they've basically got two lines of tiles. You've got your top tiles and then when you open up game you've got your bottom tiles which includes a thing called a switcher which somebody else's mentioned so i don't want to talk about because i don't there's some stuff we can't cover right now but it allows for you to switch between games not quick resume by the way there's no such thing jumping in there playing it using that. Ui stuff you've seen. It's pretty much what it is if you like that kind of stuff that's great if you don't you're not gonna be able to get away from it but i just don't see a lot of people i don't know about you guys. I don't spend a lot of people in the. Us like a lot of time in the us. It's not something that i'm gonna. I'm gonna fred over so getting this all set up and going i another thing. It's cool to the touch like it's it's pretty much like the ps or like the xbox series. I saw some people say in both were overheating or both were hot and i saw some video. Ps five possibly on a shelf store shelf somewhere where maybe they had sort of contained it on purpose to see what would happen and basically says ups was hot. Turn you know like at adequate ventilation

You know we're don't okay you know it's it's been a little It's a challenge. I can tell you that you know it's hard to be. Kinda hold up in a in a place for as long as we have been and not not getting back to normal. Not traveling been difficult but you know what I tried to get. Things in a bright side and families healthy work. Were doing well so I thought before. Absolutely and that's what matters Do you actually think there's going to be an NFL season this year and if they actually do have an NFL season how do you think that they should launch it? I think they will have either I need for them. I think timing was was pretty good because you know the virus. Everything happened which is kind of walk up for them it happen. I think January February February March. And so they kind of dodged that would happen to Super Bowl They had a draft Digital wasn't obviously Las Vegas but I think it was. It was pretty successful so I I just think right now the teams they have because we're starting to see more cities opened up states. Open up We're seeing NBA talking about resuming their season. We're starting to hear. Mlb In their talk so the NFL. I think they have a little bit more time than he's leagues. Do and I still believe that they will start the season on time. I I really do. I haven't seen anything or heard anything that would suggest that they won't start the regular season on time there may be some pushback on preseason games maybe shortening preseason games but I fully expect the NFL to a fool season right absolutely and as a die hard. Chicago BEARS FAN. I WANNA know. Do you think there's going to be fans in the stands when the season starts because I wanna I WANNA be there? You want to be there. One I mean. We heard the dolphins come out. I think they've made about about fifteen thousand fans what they're kind of disappointing trying to do So you know.

"And now he. He invited you to four weeks to stay with him and he had to compensation talking all about could have huge hay into this media. Circus hate Israel could have been huge. That's what makes a huge brother that the media is what makes a huge. Let's remember when Mohammed Ali went to God damn it. I had it in my head for this whole time What heavyweight fight was it where Muhammad Ali he hadn't been seen for like years and then he came out and he went to somebody's camp was a heavyweights camp. What fight was it anyway? Look look look quickness batmobile. Listen the point. I'm trying to make with that and I'll think of the fighting a little bit. The point I'm trying to make with that is that that was turned into something completely different. This was a man who just went to see and pay homage like Yo real recognize real. I respect what you doing and this turned into like this whole thing. Like mom and Ali's backing so and so oh he's GonNa show him all the tricks of the trade like shut the fuck up now. He's not even this. Is it what he's came to do? Like with four men. That's what I'm trying to say. Whatever help he can give him for from from From a mental perspective. That's something deep. That's something that they gotta do between themselves. That that nobody else will understand. I agree with what you're saying. The problem is is. It's going about in the wrong in the wrong way. This man wants to be in the camp it needs to be in the camp. He needs to be talking to them. You don't hear conversations. It Deonte is having with his own personal Team you don't have cure conversations between him and s s might give something that Deontay allowed him to give but nobody's out here talking about. Oh a rumble in the Bagley Bro. Not This is and this isn't rumble in the jungle. Okay Man. This is a celebrity. Form is a legend in boxing. So forming goners this attention. You just hate him right now. But it's all right. Everybody sees it. Look signing my ness on a flare. Wait for two weeks. And then we'll see what the comments on the flipside. I want to know what the cash Abbas and will mario things on the flip side Tyson. Fury was on a British show talking about. He won't do it again easily. Easily figured out Wilder from I fight will makes you think that another fighter in wild can't figure out tasting fear reading their fate. I didn't say he got a rubber match about no well first of all. It's not like that kind of rubber match because the first fight was a draw in most people thought fury one but I. I understand what you're saying but I'm sorry fuck which I'll go ahead go ahead. I'm still a rubber match. Still Trilogy and it's still discharged. Gps implemented and now you have George Foreman and you're not on Victory but on mindset on on strategy mentally and how to approach things which your corner which ahead of High Pri- food now down y'all so low in the Five O. Four Sir Bs Ness you blasted. Aj and fury for changing up. And he's talking about WH-. Agm Fury changed it up in terms of their training camps and I blasted them. Both of them were successful in their change and everyone else was happy with their change. I blasted them so because I blast him. Wilder isn't allowed to do the same or he should not do the same. Because I have a connection with while the he needs to you know I don't know see. Make his decision based off of my opinions. No that's not. How yes. That's the crazy part. Seeing Mario necessarily say I blasted him. So you're blasting then turn it into immediate thing so are you blasting or you just like sharing ideas that everybody else has struck in from this conversation teams. It's a little bit of that. It's a little bit of that. I'M NOT GONNA lie. You're right it's a little bit of the of the ladder. But I will say this though. I want to be very clear. I'm not blasting the idea form and wilder communicating or whatever level via phone via skype in person. Whatever blessing that what I'm blasting is the way that it's perceived what it's turned into and when you give them the media soundbites that these journalists want that. I want that we try to get from these interviews all the time. It's it's it doesn't help the situation at all in could negatively impacted by bringing even more attention and more is now how many. How many sixty seventy year olds are out there? That didn't know wilder before that stopped watching. Boxing I remember Mohammed Ali. I'm going to watch this like it. Brings this unnecessary pressure onto deontay to say. Yo I gotta come out and I gotta I gotta I gotTa do this for the sake of rumble in the jungle. Thrilla in Manila. There's already rush. What are you can always be added. He said now. Focus Georgia's made a phone call. He's gotta live up to the pressure through Manila. Nasa said that you want to get out on on his tell the tape like we'll give his height. We'll give weight. We'll give ormond made him a phone. Call Your let me get a get a thought out right so I will say that the George former went up there without some kind of publicity plan. You know what I'm saying. He went up de. We all say all the time. Good and bad publicity is still publicity up where they called him. Jesus is I'm sure but it was wasn't like. Hey George George picks up his skype call. Hey what's up teams often? He wrote. Then you don't matter. No no no I gotTA KEEP. It erupted is. I'm the one scheduled interview so if I'm Texan Guy and I'm like Yo what's going on George how you've been on good and everything I'm like. Hey whatever happened with that while the actually we had to compensate really. Let me. Let me face Tom Real quick. That's how it went down and then go down. Oh let me know I my article. Why would I just face the voice? So there's another logical perspective. He could also tax wilder and say hey while the TMZ reaching out is it. Okay I talk vaguely about what went on boom. Hey Yeah no problem that could happen. You know what I'm saying but I put it like this again based on site based off of based off of I duNno Steve. My Monica and Monica knows position again but he was somebody high impact maybe even like a CFO whatever says we got tmz in line. We're about to make superstars. Tmz plays a big part on spreading the news. And that's why I believe that there was more than just like a guy on TV. Hey George cannot facetime you right now. Skype boom. Let's do this bigger. Listen you gotta think from a content creator standpoint. You know what I mean off Jewish form but now you are. Tmz level argue. I'm not yes I do. I'm not saying I'm on day level. I'm not saying on day level in terms of popularity. I'm on day level in terms of thought process and thinking. And why would I want to get George on the show from TMZ? I WANNA get him on this show. That makes no sense. Yeah you're not thinking clearly. I'm thinking real clever but we knew station if we put yourself in deontay wilder shoes. Now because you're thinking from Nestor Gibbs who books we on ninetieth holds the here. We're not supposed to think about while the situation because this is tmz content this is TMC's article shirts video. So why are we allowed? We thinking about the content that we got from TMZ. And what it uncovered. What did it uncover for us something that we didn't know yesterday? What is that wilder and George may contact. It's not just social media anymore. It's not just George wants to willing. They spoke you are mad that it's no longer propaganda that it's real now and that's why you've taken the stance because before today it was just would if now we're closer to what can be and you guys are afraid a whole lot. Now you guys I gave you. He's talking US schedule and my feelings. You say your feelings and you shared your fill. The World Mario was saying his feelings could relate to about eighty five percent boxing public. Yeah listen I it's funny. Bro. It's funny I mean. Yeah no no you know what I. I'M MR agreeable right. I always agree. So let me agree. Let me agree mayor right Bro. George Foreman he won the fight for wilder. Now it's over if you're just retire then because obviously the phone call made all the difference in the world so you know what I'm saying. It's it's clear to me No that's worship. Look at the end of the day this is a phone call that we have no idea what transpired. We have no idea what else this could turn into. All we know for sure that it turned into is this media sound bite. That's it look the title. The interview has rumble in the jungle in it. That's just fucking clowns stuttle. You're you're mad today. Are trying to capitalize on on or maximize on the reach of this particular article in video. That's what you're jealous of. You know. Don't even wilder can do this magical potion. You're you're jealous. They got George Foreman. You jealously wilder got the speak to Jordan. Enjoy a free loop got we grant. Who's actually a former champion? He knows the thing or two about being a champion. Unlike yourself and we'll get his opinion on a situation rob. How're you good morning? Thank you first and foremost I know. Believe you guys are living in Vegas these days hopefully in Texas and you just in Vegas for training. But we didn't make way too early. Good morning how are you brother? Thanks for the call. Thank you brother. Thank you in a long time. Fan of the show. I know I brag all the time how you're a Patriot man. One of the first boxes to sign into patrons so we always are going to appreciate that man. We want to thank you. Obviously for coming on. We're going to talk a little. Bit of everything obviously The topic of the discussion. Today is George Foreman. And while they're making some contact they've actually Shared a phone call and we got the resident hater. Wiry Oh Aka. Mario here says that this means nothing. It's all propaganda. This is just George forming capitalizing. Why did he publicized this phone call? Wow the TMZ. He just wants media clicks What do you think a guy like George brings to the camp for deontay wilder on the top? Two Samuel. A lot of it has to do with like the rapport between the fighter. And the in the coach I I don't see it being like the best match in the world but again I'm not I'm not in the training sessions with them so it's tough to say but I don't see George Miller bring a whole lot of the table for for Dante Wilder.

I'm so glad you're wrong because I have been earlier. I'm right here okay. There you go there seconds. I wonder what we're talking about. The Tiger and Kim Carr said Kim Kardashian came on talking about the tiger. That's where we left off because What I mean to say by that is that she posted it and it became news because she's a celebrity. Her PULSE WAS. I'm getting all these the M.'s Texas because people were telling me they believe Carol killed her husband. What do you think? So that caused a reaction throughout the media world because she's so popular. You can't not hey on. Tmz FOR CONTACTING. A legendary boxer. That obviously gone through the same thing you don't want to associate were happening in. Zaire to what happens awhile too. And that's fine. That is your opinion but other people see the familiarity. In the situation generalities in the situation. There are definitely some generalities in the situation. But to but to me the situation gets blown out of proportion to me. The situation gets put on a pedestal. When when it when it gets spoken into you know I it into the media into the open world you know what I mean and so two place that kind of pressure. On whatever sort of relationship they may or may not figure out together is just. It's unwarranted it's unnecessary. You're just needs to do. Put HIS HEAD DOWN. Keep his same team together and do his best to show up on fight night. The same cocky dude that he was before your going to win the fight. Not George Foreman special sauce Michael Jordan. You want Michael Jordan. Namik some some some some special stuff into a bottle on space jam and then Deonte is gonNA drink in turn to a cartoon character. What do you think happened? What what what is warming up for him. Listen you know what form and got he? Put the theory regarding you. You're afraid you're afraid of what it is Forming can do. That's what's going on here. People are nervous. You are the representation of the fury fandom. And you're showing their panic. You're showing that they are nervous. And I know it's hard not to be nervous about a fight where You know the guys lost conceivably every round Ten that's why it was fighters he's doing with fury did that's why he's doing to see. That's the funny thing. Aj and fury change it up and they get blessed they get they get put on on the level now. Wilders stinking possibly he may change. We don't know for sure because this is George. This is George saying what he wants he is the one like Lennox wanted to help. Aj George wants to help wilder and you are jealous. I can see them. You want it to be George helping someone else not. Wow Yes lenox makes us go ahead. An- recap sorry. Go ahead right yeah you. Tmz and George Foreman. But Steve What was his name from impact my Ciano mentions tmz to gain and build a superstar. This is all part of the formula of boxing period. You want good light on boxing. Tmz and George. Foreman is good light on boxing. I'm correct myself. I said Manila. It was desire that George Foreman compared fury and while the two and I really agree that would George Foreman going in his corner and being a mental support is a not putting your head. Down is probably saying you'll keep your corner together. You can easily beat them like this because this I thought it was going to happen and they impo employees Put put a plan together a strategy for for Tyson fury. He sees his style. George Foreman Sees Tyson Fury Style and he knows Deontay Wilder Style and what he has beat him and I agree with George Foreman. I'm not mad. I'm not mad at TMZ covered this or broke this. I'M NOT GONNA lie. It would have been nice for the friend of the show to let us know that they spo- but I'm not mad at that. You know what I'm mad. I'm mad that that you know That we do a show show a day right a we're in the situation we're in and TMZ got these guys again. I'm not hating these. These people get their their their Assignments you know the same way. I used to get my signs from newspapers and websites and stuff right but this do does not understand the intricacies of boxing. You know what I'm saying. That's why Nestor Gibbs would be better on. Tmz You know what I'm saying but but but not everybody can get an answer gives so this turns into so what happens when a casual turn Gets this interview. It gets the scoop. He turns it into something that it's not. He turns it into as many talking points as he can. And that's what's been done here is is perhaps a beautiful intricate conversation between two people has has been sullied in my opinion. It's ugly it's money now. You know what I'm saying. We're all about it. We're all gossiping. What did they think they talked about? The Tiger King. Yo you think they talked about a prince. Charles Getting Corona virus. What do you think they talked about? They talked about today. It's boxing and how not who you know. Keep yourself down in your depression. How not to you know? Stay in the freaking out of the lowest of the lows. He probably gave him the right pep. Talk the right motivation to let them know. It's not over a multimillionaire. You still are the biggest puncher in boxing history and if you make the right changes and you give yourself the right attitude you giving yourself a fighting chance. I just don't get. Why is this so much negativity to George? Who's alleging ain't never done nothing to nobody. Everybody bought his George Foreman Grill. Why are you so mad that he's connecting with wilder? I was mad that there while you're with that connection out in front of million facilities at a time where you don't go Z Z. He put it out. He said I'm scared so that I'm getting nervous but in reality what it really is. Is You're clinging to anything that you can that you think will turn this by different. All George Foreman. Oh you know what? Let's bring a vendor Holyfield in it you know. What is there any duplicate Mohammed Ali? Mind and put it into some like you know westworld computer and then he could give him some some advice. To who else do you want to bring in? Mario Mario. That's what your problem is. You're trying to hold on to everything you can't but I'm sorry brother I'm sorry listen to me. Format is not the answer that you're looking for us to say it's not I don't know brother. I'm unlisted. I know. I've been watching boxing long time but I don't know everything about boxing and I never will. That is way above my pay grade on what he needs to do. It's probably it's probably right or wrong. Whatever there was a key. Word that you just said Invoked something inside of me you said. That is a difference. There's a difference. There's something different on the west side with that little they lose an Internet but real quick. We got a cash out from but it on him again. Let me get to this crash from Trenton Jones. Who SAYS A disk cache aptness? Mario has never been a heavyweight champ but he know wow wow the needs to do more than one of the goats. Mix Shut up expect opinion. I think what he's saying is like how could I even for a second? Believe that a heavyweight. How what did he say? I'm reaching I don't even what the fuck I don't even read every side. How isn't this a good thing that a legend con? He'll be what you need it to your haters. Yala right now turning our combat thing. It Ain't training essay. He didn't say anything about come train for two or three weeks. Come hang out why. Why is it become like yo him hanging out with Tyson few hanging out with George? Foreman is going to make him a better fighter. But it's not nothing to do with fighting so we talked about it so many think it's all meant to but isn't that turned him as well that fighter it's about my said we had A. We had a person of female in here. I can't remember her name. Forgive me girl. She said it's a mindset fight in my life is mindset. You go outside of work you have my say and your day is better than yesterday. You know so George forming on TMZ and has invited him and speaking on the phone. That's changing as mine. Us On head down his. Hey hold your head high. Don't put your head down. Let me quote. Let me quote. He said we talk because I was in that position where I lost unexpectedly with the title in Africa. Only you know what he's going through right he says I just said Oh he's related narratives loss UNESCO. Okay so I I'm trying to say this This quote here where he said. We talk because I was in a position where I lost unexpectedly with the title in Africa. Only I know what he's going through he's GonNa have to live with the fury laws but I can show them how to live with that and how to come back better. We talked a lot on those lines so mario said he heard this. Mario said he would read the quotes but obviously he didn't because what they talk about. Are they going to get some salsa? They're gonNA be good from chicken all his when he's not James said he also goes back he also goes on to say not only beat him while the can easily do it. Give him another chance. He'll show you but that's years now. That quote right there is what has fury fans and Mario Shaken in a boots. Give another. He'll show you and and another quo and I'm I'm I'm not gonNA say not verbatim. He says he says something along the lines of like Yo when you go into that rain the titles vacant. It's not your fight is built. Yes back a vacant title. So again these are like meant to things e Sham Woodham. We don't have that. I never lost a big ass. Thrilla in Manila Zaire Fighting Africa come on. He's eighty nine forty-five troy probably overslept. Again this is the second Listen Mario is trying to minimize everything. That's happening marginalize is what I said He. He's trying to. Let's just let's just brush it off or so say someone who's George. He's not relevant. That's what he's doing but we know as boxing fans. This is huge. This is huge. GotTa Legendary Dude that. When the same thing you went through..
The unsinkable Tyson Fury took America for a night. Can he keep it?
"Tyson. Very deontay wilder both had unique entrances to the ring on Saturday night but the advantage at once the bell rang was all furious. Wilder was knocked down twice once in the third and once in the fifth round while there was able to extend the fight to the seventh round but fury was too much. Wilders corner threw in the towel giving fury the win by Technical Knockout Fox sports analysts and huge boxing Fan Christopher starred with us. Now good to have you on this one. How surprised were you by the outcome will pick wild during the tenth round? Tko So obviously. I thought he'd win. I was surprised he lost. I would not have been surprised. If fury had one in a decision it was a close fifty fifty. A lot of people are saying. It's a fifty fifty fight. I wouldn't have been surprised at off. He just outboxed him for trail round right but for him to march forward the way he did and knock him out. That's the problem. He was saying he was GONNA do it. You know in the premiums fight and I thought he was just talking noise right right and I thought he may be trying to throw wilder off. But here's something I have said since. Wilders become champion and been this prominent fighter and this is why despite his all time high knockout percentage despite his record no one really has ever put him in the class of Tyson Ali. Form and frazier any rocky Marciano. Any of the really great heavyweights. Because the fact is he can't box. He cannot box he has this. That's you his fight against Louis Ortiz. Recently he was getting shut out every round he knocked him out. May One St Right. And so what? What fury did there were so great when he took the fight to wilder and he had wilder backing up like around one. I was watching a fight with some guys. And we're like the body language or walters. Now he's backing up all of a sudden he's never nobody knew that right and he lunges with throws the right he steps for with his left and then lunges. You can't do that if you're backing up. And he wants. He took a fury. Took that away from him. He had no answer no he doesn't jive with a as a weapon. He does it to measure so I get the right right. He can't dance. I was even saying it may be equilibrium. Was just off but once after the third round. He looked out on his feet. I was saying run. Just move until you can get your wits about you or whole you wits about you. And he didn't even know how to do that. Look he showed a lot of heart. He showed tremendous heart because a punch drunk for the last four. But and I'll say this finally. I hope I'm wrong. I don't think he can bounce back. I don't think I think the best chance. He has the balance about that. Furio bounce back thinking fury. I think his best chance of bouncing back is to fight Joshua and maybe beat him but here you know you're the bully and then you get bullied and we've seen it. George Forman it's a religious conversion and fifteen. Here's a preaching to become when he became when he was a whole different person that one Tyson was never quite the same age. Because you're not the same in your own mind nor do you have that intimidation opponents and Roy Jones. Junior wasn't a bully but he was dominant you. Once he got beat he was never this guy. I just mentally. It's GonNa be so hard for him to bounce back I again. I don't think he could be fury. I definitely don't think it'd be fury but I have trouble in general so going back in history. This is what me very late on Saturday night. I picked wilder in a second round knockout because I thought after Tyson fury had all week predicted. I'm going to knock him out in the second round that he would get a little careless and be vulnerable to the one punch. That deontay did have in that. That Punch you could argue is about as lethal as any punch. We've seen in the history of boxing. I don't know if I've ever seen him more savage right than that one in all it takes is one. Is You know and that? Big trees going to topple. But you have to catch him flush and he wasn't able to catch him with it so we're my head. Went back to a fight. That I wrote about was that I watched. I didn't go to just watched it here. That was the rumble in the jungle. I haven't been more shocked by the strategy and the unfolding of a fight than than I have since I sat watching Ali something that I thought was impossible to the beast. Who Was George Foreman and remember in those days George? Foreman weighed two hundred and fifty pounds. He didn't wait to seventy three. And I thought that was beyond massive and Ali Wade to twenty for that fight so he was given up thirty pounds but he wound but he games he had gained. Wait to find out by hand by. I totally agree but I did not see rope adult coming. Because I don't think he's corner. Saw Rope it upcoming. He didn't tell anybody and he goes and lays against the ropes and let he had worked on his core all through his camp and he just put his gloves on and he just said is that all you got champ. Is that all you got and you just kept trying to chop wood until he just chopped himself down

"No his shift that cut. You know what you have a point Because I do remember him being a commentator on. Hbo He was really good. You're right Troy Dublin. Bag Boomerang status. Yes Sir John David Jackson that he wants to if he wants to train. That's the one he should look into good with tall guys. He's a he focuses on the fundamentals. Georgia's a hall of Famer. Yes when he does not never known for his fundamentals and he's never trained anybody and please stop talking about things you know nothing about like Ali in history because you would have one who gleefully quotes. I don't study history because I don't see me for it. So why the hell he talking about history? When you don't know about it. Please stop troy of doing embarrassed royal. Yes Sir is there another fighter? Tyson fury that when he fights resembles Ali in the ring. No fighter alive resembles Eileen rain. All right well then you just you just being thick-headed I'm being knowledgeable because I'm not trying to push you're trying to watch you. Keep me on the show to help you out. Because you need a lifeline. Keep you on this view on this. Yeah you don't even watch boxing. I know boxing. I don't really know why I wanted to watch all the Times up you've done Kentucky would up first time caller yet. I I what's your name brother. My Name's Ernie Ernie. Talk to us. They man I really love your show. First and foremost Actually I'm from southern India just had been talking number but what I wanted to say is Maybe you can talk to George Foreman but I don't WanNa see George Foreman as a trainer. I want Barry Hunter for deontay wilder. So what other show our I? I was just going so quick now. Yeah I was just going to say why Berry outside of Lamont saying not not not to say anything against Barry like you know what I'm saying. Yeah I see what you're saying but I know very hundred has also worked with Shaun border and he's a favorite of mine as well and I think that may be buried under and Give you off the water a little bit more defense positioning right. I mean you know for me. In my opinion thing Barry Hunters like a body attacker know what I mean. He's do the trains the cavs guys right. Daniel Grill and letting hands go. And if you're not ready for that that's not the train and right now it don't look like wild is going to be the more active fighter. Even though I watch interviews where you know fury said that was the whole purpose. He was training and throw more punches. That Marco's Vega interview was crazy. It was like him not caring and just telling everything it was a tell all before the fight insane on Alonzo's Irving Texas see where he's at the on skype now so numbers get buried there. Go Damn he just jumped on seven minutes ago. I hope I hope I'm right about that. Let's go out to mastermind and Texas minimum of modules DOT COM. What what am I gonNA hang fight right now? After had roy teen years since O two for Barton you off the chain but anyways you know what I think. You're both right in a sense about this whole I'm gonNA use my boomerang this whole foreman and and turning things. I don't think he's trying to be full time trainer but did about informative ticker belong talked about back in the last ten years came back to the belt. He's offered his services to an wilder. A lot of people don't think. Aj look the same after that loss which he did in that fight. We don't know how back maybe big Georgia's there. Hey come with me for a minute I can help you reconnect regress. That because if you don't know how to properly do it can take a long time to come back to something like that. I think he wants to see these guys who good so I think I think. That's what is posted a couple of weeks of me. Let me let me You know let me give you a rebirth. Let me help you reconnect. Get through this loss. Get the understanding what happened because a lot of people say it's a big thing. Psychologically because When you think Jordan he thing again you think of the of the tongue being stuck in dachshund the shoes we harley you think of like The suppose over Sonny Liston and you think of of which call it they my main. What's my name when he made them made him when he came into how Mohammed Ali? So when you think of theory if you're GonNa go there you hit what you think of him clicking while his neck and he's going to be more known for you big doctors but I'm not confident.

Muhammad Ali vs George Foreman: The Rumble in the Jungle
"Here's Monte coming across the Robe Muhammad Ali war while he trained for his famous rumble in the jungle against George Foreman. The Robe is a reminder of the political and cultural context of the Times made this one of the most important sporting and entertainment events of the Twentieth Century Tree back in Smithsonian storage would looks like an unassuming. Terry cloth training rogue with simple black lettering says Muhammad Alley and above is his signature so little frayed at the edges here a little yellow represents an icon and a legend who was the greatest that sports has ever produced here comes early. You can see in their very calm. It's age against you. They've got these two American African American boxers George Foreman Muhammad Ali is he lost his title Losses Bertel. Yes he was trying to jump to the current heavyweight boxing champion. The odds were stacked against L. E. Right out of gate because he was older form and had was undefeated formidable opponent Yasser when I'm meet this man if you think the world was surprised when when Nixon resigned wait allow with forms and in terms of the actual the fight in Zaire how did that come about it was with Don King I think they had connections with the people in Zaire and thought this would be like this great news sort of mass spectacle that would elevate interest just in not only the fight but also the nation of Zaire and also like a you know they had this big concert and James Brown in addition tend to be a major sporting event. The rumble in the jungle was also a major musical event James Brown. was there be king was there. The spinners were there this global spectacle well that was none other than legendary boxing promoter. Don King Jitney Super John's they come into one fold and do one thing six thousand miles from home that was blackness that was distributed to accept blackness to help platelets trust practice and into associated separate blackness. We all citizens of the world. It ain't about us being we WANNA be against. Nobody cares about us saying that we for each other so that there was this celebration aberration connecting African culture with African American poultry that both celebrated and exploited in some ways in order to get people excited about the fight by the time that was kind of a new concept but in terms of rumble in the jungle considered one of the most important sporting events at twentieth century. Why do you think that was no long run. There's a lot of big events but they don't always hold up so you have this huge audience championship fight that was like incredible years the Ali Lee story itself and I'll ease rope widow finish to that fight where you got let himself get punched basically and tricked form in and new yet one shot right and was able to accomplish it and that was huge. Ali's rope a dope finish was the key to his victory. He let himself get backed up against the ropes then used his arms to block as many a forms punches as he could once foreman was worn out. Ali made his move. We'll get into rope-a-dope put up a few minutes but just no it was all about outsmarting his younger opponent. Mohammed Ali dancing around the national anthem. I mean I know that like for myself growing up in a Muslim family and my parents grabbing India in the sixties and you know all the fact that he was this outspoken black Muslim. I think there are a lot of Muslims around on wall who sort of took ownership of him in some ways you know like he's one of us and I just remember as a kid the idea of sort of giving giving the middle finger to colonialism and the oppression by not going fighting in Vietnam. Why should I go and fight the White Man's man's war. What have they done for me as a black American so I think there was a real resonance about this fight being in Africa of all places right. I I think if it had been in America I don't think it would have had the same impact sure right yeah. The international scope of it was important and you know he won three lost at one three times james the belt so like that kind of like just adds to this kind of legacy stature that he had also so smart and funny he we know how to use his controversy to kind of help his bank account as well as the bugles fighting so. I think all around just like really is remarkable the term that he's worth remarking upon because he so

But he was also a jerk. There were a lot of stories about this. He was rude to fans who wouldn't give kids high fives or sign autographs. He had his caddy yell at people who was a notoriously bad Tipper. He was a sullen guide to play with. He was robotic with the media, and none of those things mattered because he was the greatest until he wasn't just after two on Friday morning. Thirty three year old Tiger Woods. Drove out of his house alone. His car I hit a fire hydrant then a tree police after that crash. His wife left him. It turned out he'd been cheating on her with dozens of women across the country. His sponsors dropped him. Almost as fast as she. Did Ben details of his affairs came out, and they were humiliating. I want to say to each of you simply and directly. I am deeply sorry for my irresponsible and selfish behavior. I engaged in his knee gave out and then his back and even when he felt good enough to play golf. He was bad at it. And then despite surgeries his backup worse and worse until he could barely sit down without pain. He needed a spinal fusion surgery he had it just so he would be able to play with his children in his old age. He said but afterwards he felt better. So about two years ago, he picked up a club and tried to play again, and he could and he started getting better at it on the rest. Well, we'll tell you the rest, but you probably know how this ends. Then he doubted we'd ever see it. But here it is. Turn to glory. So it's Tiger Woods. Now. Redeemed? What is it about him that compels so many of us to root for him despite his flaws? What does the way we cheer for tiger tell us, but the kind of stories that were drawn to and about the kind of heroes. We prefer. I'm jordan. He's rawlings. And this is the big story. Stephen Brent from sports net is one of our favorite guests to talk to you. Whenever sports gets bigger than the games on the field. Why did everybody I know even with people on my production team who don't care about sports watch golf on Sunday? Well, let's see because the greatest golfer of all time came back under what seemed like impossible circumstances in rows right to the top of the sport in a after being written off for really good reasons over the last several years, especially over the last five or six years because he because Tiger Woods is a ground-breaking figure culturally. The people who don't know the wouldn't know Jordan Spieth of walked up their driveway know, who he is the he's he's an icon and a groundbreaker. So we has significance beyond the game. He plays. And because we all love a good redemption story, whether it's true or not we all want to believe that if you turn your life around if you do the right things instead of the wrong things if you follow the rules. You will be rewarded somehow in the cosmic sense. And for a lot of people. I think that's what it felt like I I'm not sure if the greatest I'm trying to think is this. Latest comeback story in sports history. That's a big one. Right. And I have a personal bias on that. Because I saw George Foreman. When the heavyweight championship at age forty six having been away for eleven years, and then come back as a big fat guy had people laugh Ataman lose nine rounds of a fight Nakagawa the tenth. So that was pretty good. But this that probably just me, but otherwise yet may potentially the greatest comeback story in the history of sport, a nostalgia moment for some people. I yeah, I get creeped out thinking of nineties style. Just somebody my age at doesn't nineties is like yesterday. But there's it's an established a moment, you know, this kind of the big three right there. Right. So within the sport historical greatest of all time, and the redemption narrative, and the and the style jet for a certain generation who remember remember when way way back in those nineteen nineties tell me about that. Because that was something that everybody was talking about right after he won is that moment twenty something years ago. Now when the world saw Tiger Woods for the first time. Do you? Remember the first time you saw Tiger Woods. That's good. I know not specifically. I certainly remember the first master's I remember talking about him in the US amateur. I remember him being out. You know, what I know? I take that back. You know, when I saw him the first time, I was at home as a teenager, a young teenager. Maybe not even a teenager yet. And after school. My parents watched the Mike Douglas show, which was a talk show that was on every day like five o'clock in the afternoon, and that's the famous show where they were L. Whereas whereas all man brought him out as a six year old and he had calls. I saw that show. Do you remember when Tiger Woods became I guess the Tiger Woods that we talk about? When we talk about the beginning of this story. When is lapping the field at the masters. I'm one of those moments when he just did something that when he seemed on another planet when he seemed different from all of the rest when he separated himself and that puts him on a very short list with Jordan and alley and what was it like watching him in the late nineties and early two thousands. Well, the guy so I'm not a golf guy. I have to. So is this I read like, I quit playing golf is fourteen. I walked off the course on the second hole. I hated hated the people here that the clothing, I did everything. So I just laughed. I literally just walked off in the middle of the game. And that's why we're talking you. Because this story is golf, so I hate golf and everything about it. But no, he was he was like a he was a superman, right? He was this. And and again, the nontraditional nature in terms of golf the whitest of sports. Yeah. Those days more so than now. But the idea that you could be, you know, someone other than a rich white kid, and and take on the sports or the way they're with Williams sisters and tennis the same that you could you could kind of just going to throw this back through all of that back in people's faces planned courses that were segregated up. You know within my lifetime. Yeah. There were courses that I remember remember the commercial? I think that Nike did about that. He was the first black person to ever play on some of these courses that he'd been playing. Yeah. I do remember that. And that was you know, again, that's a very so you felt like this was righteous to that that he was kicking down those doors and breaking those barriers and thumbing. Knows that the racist and the racist traditions and golf news, you know, total package now that that said the other side of them was completely unknowable. You know, we saw him. He was again public use a public figure, and he's a six year old to a degree. And he was kind of a brand Ike on it was like, Jordan. He was universal. Right. You could you could show that picture in any continent on earth and people say, oh, that's him. But he was impenetrable. He still is I have no idea who that guy is I really don't you know, has left people try to figure it out. And a lot of very fine writers have taken a crack at it. But I have no idea who what's inside them. Do you think we know him better now than we did ten twelve years ago? I think we would like to think we do again, I think under pretending that we know these people is important to us because it gives meaning to something that's otherwise meaningless which guy just put myself out of out of a job here. But you know, it doesn't really matter this stuff. Right. It doesn't. It's funny. You're like putting a little white ball and a hauler Gorna touchdown or scoring a winning goal and overtime and hockey game. Then add up a whole lot. You know, it doesn't even add up to what your doesn't add up art adds up to you know, with art. You can say the the art is the is what's important. So we will forgive people when number one you don't need to know the personality of the person producing yard you. Appreciate the art as a separate thing from them. And number two, you forgive them their sins. Right. Doesn't matter miles Davis horrible person. Right. Like one of the worst people ever, but produced sublime transcendent, revolutionary, art. And that's enough. You don't have to care about him. But but fleet was that's the thing. It's different. Because this no one's I. Yeah. I know it's you can argue make the argument that it's art, but you know, games come and goes Gore's, come and go somebody wins somebody loses. Like I've been doing. I've been writing about this stuff for a long time. It it. It doesn't add up to a la- beans, but if we can give it meaning, you know, if you can kind of imbue it with meeting and say, there's a human lesson here. And there's a human involved in this. Then I think it kinda justifies it. So I think that's part of we want to turn this into a parable. We wanna turn sports into a parable. That's how we understand the world is, you know, through parable as someone who. Who tries to do that and turn sports into those lessons for us. What did you think when I guess when Tigers false started when the news broke of the car crash and the details of that came out any stepped away? I you know, I felt like Klay like the rest of us. You know, it was it was interesting because it was kind of a flash of humanity in there he'd been so packaged and so protected in so manufactured, and, you know, both as a player, you know, by his father, and then certainly by Nike and everybody else who were in the image business image management business to to to be around tiger. I was a couple of times golf tournaments. And you know, there's no, you know, sense of what was behind this thing. And so, you know, I think that there is well, it's what the gossip industries built on right that they're kind of the Makarius thrill of oh, they're like us, aren't they? They're just like us. As a real under the Nike. Yeah. But especially on a flawed Cuban, right? So yeah, he may be rich, and he may be handsome, and he may be may have this beautiful wife. And but really he's like, you know, the the bad guy down the block, you not like you because you would never know that he was like the bad guy down the block. He has flaws. He's he's he's human in a so, but I I think there's a little bit of glee that goes without sometimes kinda, you know, the the whole shot and Freud thing, right? That you're you're you. I think a lot of people kind of were excited about it. You know, in some ways and said there, you go, you know, you may have thought you were something else. But here's what you really are. But I think it would it mostly revealed was a guy who I again, I'm not going to I wouldn't try and put a framework aunt and say, he was you know, all about golf and then never developed the other dimensions of his humanity. I have no idea. Like, I I don't know who the guy is. I don't pretend. But I think the impulse there is to say, yeah, he's he's a he's he's a flawed human being like the rest of us. And again weirdly to take some satisfaction from it. Well, there is that narrative that we probably like to put on. Sports stars because they're bigger and faster and better and richer than us that they are missing out on an essential part of humanity because they had to focus on this game since they were three years old. And they missed the whole rich tapestry of life that we got. Yes. No. And that's a great point. Right. That is a great point that, you know, the those character lessons you learned by being a really crappy little league player, right? For instance, or how to sit on a bench or being dumped by various girlfriends or ignored by others or just understanding failure that these guys were believed they were impervious to it. But in fact, you know, everybody gets their come up at some point. But again, that's that's kind of a religious theme. Isn't it? It really is. Yeah. Well, it's the it's the new idea of the human experience. Right. And that we all kind of go through the worst valleys in our lives. And it's what comes after that makes it worthwhile. Theoretically, you're radically. Yeah. Theoretically, or you know, it could be just all pointless, which would be another another more bleak way to look at it. We'll how unlikely was the next peak after that Val. Because it wasn't just the personal life scandal. It was like I mean you cover lots of athletes who try to come back from Steph. If I asked you five years ago, Steven what's the chance that I see? Tiger Woods win another green jacket snow slim two years ago. Right. Look, it's not about and it's not about the personal life stuff in this sense. Because look he was quite capable of winning golf tournaments while his personal life was apparently you're Radyr chaotic he managed to keep those things separate as when it was the physical stuff. It's one is back when you know, this guy who could barely bender bent over to pick something up off the floor two years ago the back. You can't swing a golf club with with that. You know, I think physically that idea that no matter how hard he worked his body at broken. And that's you know, way that it was not it did not appear to be able. So he could try as hard as he wanted to and he can live as clean life as you want to do and all of those things, but it didn't matter because this machine was broken. So I I don't think anybody hearing those stories from twenty sixteen twenty seventeen about his back kind of whispers because. It wasn't very public thought. You know this. No, there's no chance right? He can't go out there and compete. We can week out. And then he kind of comes back, I guess about a little over a year ago now and starts playing golf and laying. All right. And even then I don't know about you. But it was like watching an older athlete play out his years with some semblance of what he used to be. But not the same person, certainly the British the British Open right in the open championship. Right. Where you come thought. You know, he's he's not that far off and it's not like, but it's a different year. Right. It's a different vibe was a different vibe in at the masters because you know, the the old vibe is the, you know, I'm going to I'm going to destroy you. I'm going to destroy the golf course, which is what really I'm going to destroy the rest of you in this tournament. And that kind of Uber confidence that he had. I thought the most interesting thing watching that last round was watching him play the eighteenth hole, so carefully so super carefully. Right. Because you know, again, I would have been it would have been just insane you up there and hit a driver at that point, you know, because God knows and and but just. Kind of watching him play a really safe bogey to win that tournament. That's that's not in some ways. That's the anti-tiger. Right. It's just but it was it was smart. It was the right thing to do. And really the way he won that the way you try in that last round was by being kind of dog it and watching and consistent and then watching other people fail around him. It wasn't like he just sees them by the throat they had to fail. So that's a little different. If we're going to do the metaphor thing. Again, he humbled himself in front of the eighteenth hole. And is that can we read into that anything about his new life? I mean, a lot of people talked even before this tournament about how he just wanted to win for his children. Right. And he wanted his kids to see daddy win. And that's not the old tiger. Yeah. And who knows who knows who knows this guy enough to actually say that. I have no idea. I think he probably likes being tiger. Yeah. And I thought the and the chance to be tiger one more time at forty-three. That'd be pretty cool. Right. That'd that'd be an yes, it'd be great to have it. Do it in front of your children? Who'd never really got to experience it in to shut up the nose of everybody who ever said anything about you, there'd be a lot of things that you would take satisfaction from. But again, this is a guy who has programmed to be that that thing that character that kind of golf playing robot from the time he was a toddler, and you know to have that. It's right Thompsons got a new book about kind of greatest the kind of the the nature of some of the greatest of all time athletes him Jordan criminal for the other two are, but is his take on tiger is among his takes on tiger. Now, he's a great writer of golf and a Greg. I was around the sport is you know, that he thinks tiger hated the sport that whole first phase that he he was incredibly good at it and hated every minute of it because it had been forced and imposed upon him. So again, if I'm going to play amateur shrink here, I could talk about them being liberated in this second half and doing it for himself and for his own reasons rather than someone else's reasons and not having the daddy figure hovering over in them and being the daddy himself. And but like now, I'm a sports I'm being a sports writer here. Just extrapol-. I saw that column come into view. I just don't know if it's true, right? I honestly don't I have no idea. I I've no idea we know what lies in his soul. But I don't have any idea. What lies in most people souls? Right. It's we, but we go seeking it. We go seeking that story. Yeah. We're trying to find the meaning we're trying to find the meaning. Yeah. It's and you know, and then tomorrow, we'll try and find the meaning and something else. But this one looked the one thing as a sports writer sports writers people. I was asked to do cheer. We cheer for stories. Yeah. I've been lots of press boxes. Lots of press rooms everybody. Cheers for the story. Everybody got what they were cheering for and you'll end fan through the really that's what fans want you wanna. Yeah. You support your team and you support the uniform. But man, there's nothing like a story is there. Well, here's the question. Then how come I was and probably you were certainly millions and millions of people were cheering so hard for a guy who objectively from the little that we do know about him, isn't that great guy at least hasn't been and cheering form as a huge underdog went objectively. He's one more majors than anybody. But one person and he's one hundreds of millions of dollars because we're flexible. We as a species are very flexible, I wanna feel like we shoot for a real underdog. But we can you know, you can turn it. You know, think about watching the March madness if you have no real rooting interest. And so there's two schools on there. You have no idea who they are. You have no idea who those players are. But you can construct something around that game where when you know, east west North Dakota state beat somebody you go. That's the greatest thing I've ever seen your route informant that basket goes in. And then you go onto the next thing we we do construct stuff like that. And you know, he's like that the idea of the fightback that's really fight back from adversity fight back against the impossible. And the character stuff as I said, it's tricky we could because sport has been a place where we've confused being good at something having great motor skills or winning the genetic lottery, or, you know, working hard or all this up at everybody works hard. Right. We we do confuse I with character. Sometimes those things are blurred might that. You know that he's a character guy. You know? That's that's why that's why he succeeded. Not because you know, he was born this way. A or had some advantages or because there's something else inside. We got we go for that. And a lot of time and the flip side of his we're we're quite willing to ignore the opposite with where somebody could be like Michael Jordan's. Not a nice guy. Right. There's not really any suggestion. That Michael Jordan's a nice go. No there's like with tiger. There's plenty of stories to the contract. And you know, Allie was a terrible husband and a crappy fodder by and large. Now, there's also a political social components rally. So that's you know, it's a little bit different. But as I was saying before about, you know, the separating the art from the artist you can do that with our, you know, Pablo Picasso is bad guy. Right. Really bad guy. But it didn't stop anyone from treating him as Picasso during his work that way. Well, you don't have to cheer for Picasso. You don't and you can see you know, it. It gets tricky with the, you know, the Woody Allens of the world, you know, it gets it gets into some dicey territory there. Maybe I'm not sure anybody's going to listen to a Bill Cosby monologue the same way anymore. But but sport, the two things are connected. The two things are connected, and we'd like to you know, we want to kind of link those two things. Say this guy triumphed or this woman triumphed. Because a yes, they were very compact because they worked harder because they had more of that grit and character in, you know, Royal jelly, we we really we seek that. And I'm not saying, it's not true. But I think it's more that we needed to be true. Or we want it to be true sometime like it's a chicken or the egg did tiger win again because he became a better person or because he's winning again. Do we just think he became a better person Ingo? Yeah. And his backup better. Yeah. That to actually could swing a golf club dad like he may he may be a great guy now and totally, you know, Saint Paul on the road to Damascus had a moment where hang on when everything's clear down. And I'm not going to do all those terrible things anymore or maybe just got healthy. I don't know. We'll never know. But the, but the, but the former is way more compelling than the lab.

Breaking news out of the world to the USC USC to thirty four tonight in Melbourne Australia on pay per view, Robert Wood. It covers coming gasping for the middleweight title cancelled that flight has been canceled because Robert Whitaker is going under the knife. In a matter of moments in Australia for a hernia certainly wish him the best. I'm curious Ali is Kelvin going to get paid. How's this gonna work because you just went through a training camp? What's the deal? I'm certain UFC has told you what they're gonna do. Can you? Tell us. Yeah. Always come through for me, you know. And he said he was going to kick out. You know, I understand you know, he went to a camp. And and you put a lot of money into it investment. A lot of money into it. And at the end of the day. This is. You know, I'm not worried about him. I know he will be paid. Thanks for doing this Ali very sorry about the news our best to to Kelvin as well. Speak for everyone. Everyone is bummed out about this. We're looking forward to it. I appreciate you coming on for a few minutes. He will take care. He was. And I have no doubt in my mind. Dana white and you'll see them because they're taking care of my guys sounds good. Thank you Ellie. Let's go back to the phone lines. Now talk to more fans. Breaking news again Robert Whitaker out of tonight's made event. Ernie a- surgery scheduled for Madame moments from now in Melbourne devastating news, not only for the UFC. But for Robert Whitaker who continues to get all these freaking bad breaks time. And again, he had shingles. Prior to the last time that they were in Melbourne with him headlining that card was supposed to be against Luke rock hold now. Just hours before the event he has to pull out and is going under the knife Joseph Detroit. How are you? Good. How about you area? I'm doing okay. Good. I just got a few questions for you that I think they should let the winner of tonight. And Calvin fight for the official title Whitaker should be stripped. It's just my opinion. Well, I wanna see how long he's out for this is definitely a bad break. But I typically like to subscribe to the rule that if you don't defend your title or you're not scheduled to fight within a year. Then you should be stripped in this case he last fought in June. So let's see how far he's out. Let's see how long he's out for. I should say let's see how long of a recovery this is needed. And then let's talk about stripping in. But I think right now, it's a little premature to talk about stripping. Because he pulled out last year knee injury. I think it's better for him. You don't have to take some time off. But my second question is not question opinion. True. They're gonna make McGregor verse Copley for the I think it should be Tony Emporia for the interim. Yeah, that's Donald Surani just talking right now from what I'm hearing the interim belt isn't being discussed. I don't think a belt is needed for that kind of fight. I don't think a belt elevates that kind of fight certainly not an interim title. So at this juncture, I think that's just cowboy talking and look he's going to get the fight. It seems like that's the front runner. I don't think you need to push for an interim thing anyone wants it, quite frankly, I think the interim belt would would almost like soil that that fight. I don't think anyone wants to see an interim belt online. I don't think either guys should be fighting for an interim belt when you have guys like Tony dust emporium ally. Doing what they've done as of late. Let's go back to the phone lines and say Hello to Corey in California, Corey how are you? Hey, I'm good. How you doing? I'm doing. Okay. Some some disappointing news, but we still have a car tonight. But yeah, it's it's a bummer. These things happen from time to time in in mixed martial arts and. I mean, this is a big one especially because it's the Australian who's now out of the card. Yeah. Honestly, like you said before man, I don't know how these injuries happened the day of the fight. How much are you actually doing? Such a serious injury. But I don't know it's fight game. And it happens. But. So my original copies I called about it. Now trying to shake up. I was gonna say do you think that Anderson is? His own legacy a little bit by taking these bigger fights with the much younger guys are like the fights with whatever, obviously, they're bigger fights. And he's a big name. And do you think that you have tarnished by throwing them into a fight with Israel, just because if Anderson, but then it turns around and now Anderson is card having a big name for Israel to fight. So do you think that enersen should lay off he's bigger fights? Or do you think he's finer you think his legacy Jenner hurt in the end after all this look if we're talking about tarnishing legacies? The only thing that's maybe tarnished his legacy. So to speak is the fact that he was caught with PD's twice other than that. I mean, I don't think opponents will tarnish anyone's like seeing fact to meet on the elevates your legacy because you're finding the toughest guys even as you're in your swansong so to speak. I like the fact that he's taken this fight. Everyone thought it was a mistake. It's an opponent that he thinks he could beat he's fourteen years older. He feels like maybe he's not as experiences him. Maybe he hasn't fought the kind of competition that he's. So I don't think this is. I mean, imagine he pulls it off great story George Foreman. It's like Randy tour all over again. So I honestly don't think that he's tarnishing his legacy on this one. Let's go to one quick call before we take another break Hamilton, Ohio. What's up man areas? A pleasure speaking with you. I want to go back to the UC days, or so I started hearing your voice. Boy that was handled by the UFC. I am so proud that you've come to where you had with the hard work. You've done to put yourself in today's position. Thank you know, as far as what's happening transplanted melborn sad.
