"Into something that he's not. He can't humble himself down so I don't see him coming back. I don't think he needs to retire. I do think he needs to move back up and wait to super middleweight. I think we have seen and I know you disagree with this. But we have seen that guys cutting down in weight. It costs them something with the chin. Like it makes them more vulnerable to getting knocked out. And that's what I think we saw with Chris Ewan. I don't think he was hit with a lucky shot. I think he was hit with a good shot, a shot that Liam Smith planned to throw, and I think he just couldn't take it. And if he can't take a Liam Smith punch, how is he going to take like a Gennady Golovkin punch? Or even, we'll get to this later, but even a Connor Ben punch in that situation. So I think for starters, he should move up to one 68 and start fighting there. I also think he needs to reevaluate his style of fighting. I'm not saying, look, Roy Jones is one of the all time greats in boxing. And if they want to continue working together, they absolutely should. But whenever I watch Chris eubank fight, he fights like Roy Jones. And he tries to rise and guys can't do that surgeon. What made Roy Jones special? Was his reflexes were off the charts. He was one of the best reflexive fighters that anyone has ever seen. And when he got into trouble later in his career, is largely due to the fact that his reflexes started to erode. It wasn't because he changed his style. It's just that he couldn't be as twitchy in some of these fights. Chris eubank was never that twitchy. And yet I see him out there in the ring, he's got the arm dropped, he's swinging around, he's moving a little bit like Roy. It's like with Floyd Mayweather. Only Floyd can do the shoulder roll. Guys try to mimic it, they don't do it particularly well. Same thing with Roy Roy fights like Roy. And if you try to fight like him, you better be blessed with the same type of reflexes. So I like to see you bang go up to one 68. And start to tweak his style. He doesn't have to fight like Tim Bradley, but I think he does need to fight a little bit less like Roy Jones. Is reflective a word? It is. Just check in. Mister Boston grad. All right, well, look, Boston college. The reflexes, yes, what made Roy Jones junior great is his reflexes in the power and speed. That combination of the three, which is a rarity for a boxer to be gifted with, normally, gifted with one of these lucky two of his great, all three, that's athleticism. That's Superman right there. That's Superman type talent. So don't ever try to compare yourself to Superman. Freud Mayweather junior, another Superman. You can't compare the speed, the power that he added lightweight, the twitchy reflexes that you said, man, this is like, these are like Superman a box and when it comes to reflexes and you can't, you can't compare their speed and power to anyone else.

"Only other. The only other knockout I'd add to the list was no yeah, in a way is knock out of nonito Daenerys in the second in their rematch. You're right. Again, and over the whole done air that we call it as it is. And over the hill down there, over the whole guys, older guys veteran guys, great guys. Don't do well in rematches when they launched the first one to a young great fighter. They don't. I could point to a lot of examples. One of them is Rocky Marciano and the great Jersey Joe Walcott. Jersey Joe walker and there's a lot of them or guel and prior. There's a lotto. Was the tarver knockout of Roy Jones in their second fight? Yeah, that was yeah, that was the second one. That's a good point. Yeah, those second one, right? Yeah. Yeah, those are good point. There's a lot of them. Like I said, there's a disease to them. And Jersey Joe walked out in Marciano's a great one. 13 rounds, the great wall car who was heavyweight champion at the time. He's ahead on old school courts, you know, in the 13th round, the only way most piano can win is by not counting, was he out of knocks him out. You know, devastating. And the second fight, the rematch, some people think it's going to be another great one. Nope. Nope. The old Walcott. He can't do it. He only got one of those magical nights in you at that age. And he couldn't do it no more. You know, mentally or physically. And I'd say mentally first. You know, he figured he did everything he could. What's he going to do this time? He didn't win the first time. What's he going to do this time? And he gets knocked out in the first round by Walcott. I mean, by monse. And then same thing we're all quite own prior. Great fight were to go 14 rounds, whatever what great fight, unbelievable fight with the great old guillo. Then prior. But he does everything he can he still gets knocked out by prior the first 5 second fight. Nowhere near being competitive as the first one and of course prior knocks him out. And as you said, also in a way end on air. And as you also said, Jones Roy Jones junior was November of O three, Roy Jones gets a majority decision at Mandalay over Antonio tovar 6 months later in May of O four Antonio tyrosine venue Mandalay bay Antonio tarver knocks him out cold for the first time Roy then went on to lose about 6 fights after that. Once they had chin got cracked, it was like the beginning of Glen called drugs and Glen called Johnson knocked him out after that. Yeah. Immediately after then Antonio beat him with a unanimous decision right after that. He lost three in a roll Roy Jones, who at the time of the first Antonio tower he looked unbeatable prior to that first Antonio to have her fight. He was just destroying everyone. There's probably an X Factor in there. We don't make no excuses, but we point out everything we x-ray everything over here. We do the cat scan. And you know, Jones had gone up to heavyweight to beat John Ruiz for one of those heavyweight belts. And then came back down and wait. Going up, says he later in your life. Going up and wait like that. And then, you know, putting on all that, not just wait for muscle. And then having to take it off and come back down to light heavyweight. That that could be a problem. That can be a physical problem. And you could almost connect his downward spiral a little bit. Also, when he got older, his reflexes won't the same. And he was a fighter like Ali, who depended on reflexes. That first however fight that he won by a majority decision was the first fight after John Ruiz, so he won a controversial decision, then got knocked out cold due to the probably having something to do with the weight. Gaining loss. And when you get older Ken and you're dependent like Allie and Jones, you're dependent on reflexes and speed, timing, you know, to get away from punches, you do things not technically correct. You just do them because of your greatness and those areas, you get away with it. And then you get a little old and you reflexes betray you. They betray you a little bit. And you're not getting away. Those pods that you went like this and you went like this, you like this, and they just missed now they land. Then now they land. And now the things you do wrong from a technical approach, you start to pay for a price because now you get caught. But anyway, those are great. That was a good conversation. Those were great examples. I don't see anybody arguing with those, but you know what? There'll be someone out there by the way. It's just going to say, are you crazy? They'll be a hundred people with their own fight of the year. They'll be caught in some amateur fight from the Polish golden gloves in Warsaw that we didn't see. But with that, let's talk about fighter of the year. There's a bunch of candidates here, but who do you like for fighter of the year? This one, I really do think that there's only one. I think it's got to be evil of bevel beeville. He pronounced in his name for the new column Dmitry beeville. Yeah, so people I don't see it being anyone else. I mean, he goes and he beats Canelo, you know, even though I convincingly convincingly he probably wins 11 out of 12 rounds and he wins by two points, so oh my God. But jeez, hopefully that could change in her new year, but don't hold your breath on it. I had a chance. But I can't see anyone else can vivo beating not only Canelo if that was a good enough he also beats the undefeated Gilberto Ramirez, who is a former super middleweight champion. Who moved up, maybe a runner up for me would be Devin Haiti, who kept bozos twice in a row. You know, not just that he can't bos who beat who did beat Lopez to your female Lopez who's in the downward spiral now. But not only that, but this is a guy I mean he had to go to Australia and his home twice. He had beat him back to back. Back to back, twice in the first time without his father was not allowed there to the last second was allowed there to train with him where he went over there because of a Visa situation. So I don't know. I got to consider haney up there runner up, but there's really only one winner. I can't see. I know people find anything to argue over and to disagree with over. But for me, as a sure, just the sure shot winner in that category, what do you think, Ken? I agree with you. I was going to say I had those two guys written down in the men's and in the women's I had clarissa shields and Katie Taylor and Amanda. Again, you stole my thunder, saw you so no, no, but it's good. It's good. It's good. But definitely definitely. Definitely I'm kissing and waving goodbye to my family that is going out. My son, one of the things I made it a great new year. Was I have my whole family here that he's been working, of course, an NFL with the radius of the last 14 years, 12 over there, two years for Cleveland. And this is the first year in many, many, many, many years. He got here for Christmas. They were here for Christmas and new year's. We had a whole family here, my three grandchildren, our three grandchildren, teddy del forth, Joseph and Mara,

"Feel free is a Botanic based tonic. It's made with a kava amongst other ingredients and it creates almost like a euphoric feeling. It's advertised as an anxiety reducer. I find that it does reduce anxiety, but I also find that I get a burst of energy. I like to take them before I run. I always take them before I race, and I've had great results with them. So give them a shot, Botanic tonics dot com, use the promo code Atlas and get a couple cases of feel free Botanic tonic. So he got a Tang has had on that. He got to and that was important to him. Obviously. The other thing that I want to touch on because we like to x-rays, especially when we're in doctor, you know, in our doctor gear. We like to x-ray the whole thing. And. I touch on a judge in a little bit. Now, I've been done as well before. But it's a true road. It's a road that has been a proven road. To go down. It really is. If you've been in boxing for any lent to time. Now, a couple things happen here. A lot of people complain about how close it was. A lot of people. And but I'm not one of them. Because what I am going to point out is all facets of it though. What's going on there? First of all, he gave away as I said, he gave away Canelo, a lot of rounds late in the fight. So you can't, I don't know what that crying about. He gave away several rounds. All right, I will say a lot. Here you have four rounds, 5 rounds, three, four, 5, whatever. He gave away and there was some, like I said, at least around early. That was close. And with the judges did, what you have to not miss on this, and I say it again, clearly. There was only going to be one winner. There was no way these judges were ever, ever, ever. Going to allow triple G to win, because that wasn't their job. That's the promoter, the gods would be the powers that be have Canelo winning, because he's the guy that makes the money. He's the golden goose. So that was you can see it from the purse split. I think it was 45 million guaranteed to 20 million guarantee of a triple G 45. Listen, he's the money guy. Exactly. Exactly. Now, there was he's going to win a fight. But here's the thing. Judges are human, even if they're crooked, they're human. And they felt the pressure for this fight that triple G got robbed of her, which he did. He did. I don't care what you say. The second one was closer. Listen, he got robbed bullfights. He got robbed bull fights. The first fight he pressed to fight the way he usually did he got robbed. Sacrificed a box more on the outside than at the end, he pressed a little bit and he used his jab while most of the fight and he should have got that fight. But they wanted to scrutiny. And they knew they wanted to scrutiny the judges. And they knew that people were going to be watching close. About while they're going to rob them again if there's even a chance to rob them. And so they were very cognizant of that. Sensitive to it. And what they were doing was that guy got way ahead because that's what they do. They make sure that their guy, the promoters guy, the guy that has to win, gets that. So listen, Canelo got himself ahead too, so I'm not, I'm not begrudging that. I'm not arguing that. So he's way ahead. Now they can Chevy pick. Now they can play games. Now they can pick here and there to make it look like they're being fair. And they did some of it again. Triple G did it himself. He took rounds and said, we'll give it to him. So he deserved it, but they could cherry pick. At the end of the day, they wanted to look like they would be in fairer. But one thing you do not misjudge one thing. Do not let this escape you people. There's no way that they were going to go as far as giving it. No matter what, to triple J they always had enough of a space. Enough of a margin to protect that from happening. But again, triple G was given rounds, he took some rounds late in the fight. And I'm going to tell you there's a couple of things going on here that could be excuses because as a dark guy took an oath to care not only about the physical being of a patient, but the spiritual being of a patient. That part of a patient. Not just not just the body. But the soul and so I'm going to speak to that part where I understand a lot of people that are confused with Canelo and how this could happen. I'm going to give you an excuse. I'm going to put a few puzzle. The first thing is he's not a great fighter, okay? But here's another one. Maybe going up and down and wait. As he has to light heavyweight that back down, maybe that has impacted him physically. It impacted I believe it impacted a great fighter named Roy Jones years ago when he went up to heavyweight back down with John to beat John Ruiz and then back down. I believe that it did have a detrimental effect on Roy Jones. So maybe that's playing a little bit. A little bit out. In it. Also, he looked like he was gassing after 8 rounds, which was kind of amazing. Canelo. Now, maybe it's because he really wanted to get rid of him early. He didn't, and then he started matley and physically gassing a little bit. That, I mean, he started accepting clinches even initiating clinches. You don't do that if you say you're going to knock a guy out. Canelo said at teddy Atlas didn't say Canelo said I'm going to knock him out. I have no regard for this guy.

"Meteorology careers adapt. I used to be able to handle cold. 70 pounds heavier. I used to be able to handle the two and I don't know what happened, but I hate it now. Is there anything less than 60? I'm out. 60s my limit. I'm trying to find the perfect locale for that. Shouldn't they get you like a hater underneath? Well, not it's funny. My madri asked Laura, if she wanted a heater for tomorrow morning, meanwhile, I'm sitting here turning into a cadaver. Y'all talking about me shaven. I picked a stupid time to do. Let's get that this is obviously not a hillbilly headline here, but what's the deal? We got home from Knoxville and my beard was itchy. And so I was like, you know, it's been a while. I'm going to turn it down so I trimmed it way down with like a tremor. And then I was in the shower and I was like, you know what? It's probably been 8, 6, 7, 8 years since I had a clean shaven face, and I wanted to look like Paul found ball. So I busted out the bacon went to work and it's the most polarizing thing we got here this morning. There's already a lot of public discourse on them. Yes, it's been great unrest. And work for like your Luke combs crew. One thing about me though, man, I'm like a chia pet. I can have a beard and two or three days. So don't worry. It will be back. I would I had one for a long time. How'd that go? Why did you shave it off? I'd rather not admit this, but I was on trial. You had heard from some people. It's true. We were working in a newspaper, not too far from here. And we were sued by someone and they had me shave for the trial. And then one of the lawyers tried to be a smart alley. He said, mister fehn bomb, you look a little different than you did, but we saw you at your deposition. I said, yes. He said, you had a beard. I said, I think you did too. And lawyers like, don't start. Just don't talk. Don't be a smart out. Only speak when spoken to me. I got ream for that afterwards. We did win the case, by the way, but that's all that matter. But yeah, I never go one back after that. I think I lost ten. I think aesthetically, I lost ten years. I still have a lot of gray hair, but you do look like you're younger. Yeah. I might keep it like looking younger. A 30 year old now. I'll take it. 30 better and 45. They're giving me a Cal down here. I don't even remember what we were talking about, but what's our count? Where are we? Where we got two and a half minutes. Two and a half minutes. Okay. Well, I can tell you. I was in Athens on Wednesday. Doing a big feature on Jordan Davis for the SEC championship here in a couple weeks. But while I was down there I sat down instead some Ben. Oh great. And had a conversation with him about, you know, his path is so interesting. And he's played so well this year. And I'm going to tell you some of you. Have you interviewed him on this show? I don't think so. You've interviewed everybody. I'mma tell you something. When this interview airs on SEC, SEC nation tomorrow, you guys are going to be taking aback at his honesty. I was about I'm trying not to give away too much, but basically when you ask him about where this season would live in his wildest dreams as a kid who grew up dreaming of being the Georgia bulldogs quarterback. He said, look, you wouldn't. You wouldn't pick me at YMCA. I mean, look, basically, we're almost the same size. So that's an enemy. We're not that different. I mean, he's probably more muscular. Maybe just a but we got our joy. You were not that different. He was just so honest about his positioning and his self confidence, his self confidence abounds, and then when you talk to his teammates about him, they would follow that dude into the fire. And it's palpable throughout the entire program. You know, he sat behind from him, went to juco came back, JT Daniel shows up. He said, you know, and all he has done is won. Undefeated SEC slate and a team that looks like it's certainly capable of winning the national championship. And he's grown his skill set. He talked about that. Why he's a better player now? It was just really fascinating to me to get to spend the time with him and learn from him in a very direct way about the season that he's had and kind of what that looks like. So I can't wait for you guys to see that. Tomorrow morning on SEC nation, I can not wait to, well, thanks. That was worth getting a prelude to Marty. Thank you, beardless, the beardless Marty Smith joining us here. And our podcast ESPN daily, we ask questions that reveal the deeper side of sports. Did you hear from a certain former president? That's what I'm here to ask you. Did you ever have any sense that baseball was eating away at drew? So what inspired that name across sports and society? Did you kill Lorenzen Wright Chara?

"When you just did that promo there, it made me think, I think you should host desi. I fit so much gumption behind that. I don't see if I hosted SEC nation. It would require me getting here early, going to meetings and actually paying attention. Guys, true story. Paul got a haircut during our meeting earlier. All of a sudden, we're in the middle of the meeting, you know, we're going through, all right, this that and the other playoff scenario and then all of a sudden you hear. Oh. And then, you know what I mean? There's the joke that's been played out like, oh, just trim up the sides and whatever. I gotta get one before. I get annoyed by that because I just feel like we should celebrate your hair rather than talking about another one. I don't mean to be this way, but I think he's just should celebrate me be here period. We should, right? Hey, listen, there's a lot of people celebrating. I like it. That guy's back of his phone says hi mom. That's so cute. Oh, that's the front of his phone. I was talking to some Friends of mine from the school communication, had some students over it. I was visiting with so I would come into the meeting and every time I went in there, it was just like, I thought I was listening to the fine bomb show. Are you implying that those of us on SEC nation are basically like fine bumpers? The committee and I catch you guys later. Paul had no time for it. He's like, now's a good time to go to the bathroom and go do that. I'm going to maybe take a little sip of my smoothie. And then, you know what? Gonna go get a haircut. Let's do that as we prepare for our SEC nation. And by the way, the show is going to be great. We're all going to be on point as a result. You do your best work when there's no planning behind it. So we'll be in good position. By the way, I brought you a gift. Oh, you did. I felt like in order to earn my keep on this show. I needed to bring you something. So this is from Nacho, who's been out here. I don't know where he went, but he was out here. He's the guy that has the yellow hammer. But there you go. Thank you, Nacho. That's really good. It's really nice. I love nachos. So one of my favorite movies. We had a lot of people here, and then the temperature started dipping into the 30s and everybody left. All of a sudden it was like, it got really cold, which as we continue to say. I appreciate all of you being here, bob. Yeah, you guys are the real ones. We get the OGs back here, you don't care. But yeah, I'm glad you have a jacket poll. I started leaving with some of the people earlier. Can I FaceTime the rest of the show? Is that possible? A local pub? Yeah, anybody have you ever been to a pub? I happened to a pub in England before. Oh, wow, so real pub. That's of course you would do the original. Paul, what do you think is going to happen with Alabama and the playoff? I feel like you haven't answered that question enough this week. So I'm really good at apologize. You asked me that question this meeting. I said, I don't know, everybody has. Here's what's going on right now. I'm trying to actually have the meeting right here right now, so I hope you guys don't mind since Paul was busy earlier. Can I email you back to the answer? You don't email. Your emails are like your texts. You just delete them. So there's nothing there. Let me see if I have any text here. Yeah. We've done this before. Yeah, that bit's old. But I'm just getting rid of all the text by the way. Here's what I want to know from you is do you think this committee would put a two loss Alabama in? And that second loss being in this case, I would say a loss in the SEC championship because if you view it through the prism of constitutional law, yes, because they have shown the precedent for that. Right. But this committee is not constitutional scholars. They are a collection of 13 people from all walks of life, who need some help when it comes to shaping their message. Yeah. You know, I believe you're talking about what Gary barta said on Tuesday night. I'm not playing devil's advocate here. But the one thing I do think is interesting is a lot of times the committee chair is in position to be making cases for what the committee has done and they may not have voted that way. Exactly. So it becomes it becomes very interesting when you think about them trying to justify something that maybe they didn't want to happen. We don't know what barda wanted to happen in some of these people will not forget. I'll translate it. He basically said, other than other than what happens in the games, we feel like Michigan is a better team than Michigan. Say, and by the way, I now agree with him that Michigan probably is better than Michigan state. But you can wait till maybe the final week to determine that. Yeah, that's been the interesting thing about this year with this committee is I feel like more than any other committee, they've just every week they've said, you know what? We're going to just say this is how we almost wanted to end up as opposed to saying, all right, let's rank them based on head to head or whatever we think throughout. And then at the end, we'll sort it all out and have our four teams that we want to be in the playoff. If for some reason, Alabama plays Georgia and loses a close game and gets in. That is when this committee will be roasted like a marshmallow at your little daughter's birthday party. Well, yeah, well, I was gonna say we are gonna roast marshmallows tomorrow on SEC nation. That is a real thing. And you're just going to have to tune in to understand exactly what I'm talking about. So tune in to nation tomorrow for that Paul is going to have to eat us some more, and then do the rest of the show with marshmallow all over his lips. But nothing he hasn't done before. But I think you bring up an interesting point because that is where I believe this committee is trending toward based on let's say it is a close loss by Alabama in the SEC championship game. At that point, if Alabama is still the number two team, are you really going to say and maybe some carnage happens in the Big Ten? Are you really going to say? It's not that far fetched. It's not that far fetched. And that's where, of course, everyone's going to come out and say, well, this has to expand, and why do they keep putting these same four teams in? And it's going to be that whole that whole thing. But to me, a lot of that conversation could be avoided by the way that they're ranking the teams even at this point and that's where that's where I would put the questions right now. What I really want for this committee to do, I want to Alabama, Georgia, Ohio State and Clemson. Back in there. If question beats.

"Can't be that strong anymore. Wrong again. Give me the chance to feel like a horse they keep me. I see a holy smoke. Wow. He must have done a lot of trading training during those hangover movies. He had to because he wouldn't hug all of that night. I promise. So at the end of the draw, were you okay with that? Well, I almost, I was okay with it. But when you look at it in normal circumstances, I wouldn't be okay with it. Okay. But it was an exhibition a I thought I won, but this is Mike Tyson B and I got both ears. I can't go wrong. Yeah, I talked to a van der a couple of years ago. I think his son played for Georgia. I didn't know what to say to him. I kept staring. You've had. I mean, from a distance. One of the most charmed life. I know you worked for it. I know you endured. And anybody who thinks it's easy getting in a room and a ring with you. I'm scared to death sitting across from you. But what about your life? The places you've gone, the people you've met. Beyond boxing, I would have to think it's been an extraordinary journey. It's been one of the most extraordinary things that I could ever imagine. I mean, people know, it's like, to me, we as a people, we have the most elite waves of communicating. Yeah, we had a hardest time communicate. And that's crazy to me. And I was like, I always grew up thinking of different people with the enemy. Different people were different things, but it's like the SEC. We all hate each other on the battlefield for all to feel we all love one another because we realize that without one another, we wouldn't be what we are. So it's the same thing with life to me. It's like I never imagined that people places like Russia would want me to be a citizen. So I have dual citizenship. I'm a Russian citizen and an American citizen. I mean, it just thinks you never would have thought of that were possible. They want me to come over to Jim and Serbia now. I have a gym in South Africa. They only open the gym in Montenegro. It's just so many different things going on. But with all those things being said, none of that would have happened without the grace of God. And through that, you mentioned South Africa, it's hard to think about at the end of that country with Nelson Mandela and some of the other things that I'm sure you've seen. The people you've met, has any one moment or two moments stood out above all the rest? The moment that's still above all was meeting Muhammad Ali. And the reason that stood out above all was because Muhammad Ali was my first idol. He was the first person I ever saw box. He was the reason I knew right away that I could box because of his mentality. Right. He did more outside the ring than the inside of it. And the things he did outside the ring, magnified and glorified part of who you really was inside the ring. He didn't use a lot of boxing skills. He uses mine and the things he did outside to unite people. When he died there was every religion, every race, every form of every walk of life was that by how many of these fuel. And to me, that's what life is about. We all are supposed to love one another. If we don't, no matter what race religion, wherever you are, we don't love one another we're not doing God put us here to do. And that's what I learned most about Muhammad Ali. So when I met mom and Ali, that did it for me. Wow. Was he able to communicate? Yes, he was. He was able to communicate. More through sign language than his speech but I did understand things people say, too. He could say enough that you can understand it. Now, I'll end with this. You're a smart guy. And you fought Tyson post his prime. You would have been too smart to fight Muhammad Ali, wouldn't you? No, I would have been too dumb to fight him. Because most of us are idiots, right? Boxes, once we thank girls. You don't have anything. There's no confidence in. So no, no comment whatsoever. That's why I had to talk to myself now. Hey, don't do it. I have to talk myself down on a daily basis. And if Tyson called you right now and said, I feel like I mean, hello? I want to be there for that. It's just crazy how I am. Thank you, brother.

"Is last week when I was in Serbia. I even bought him to determine. First time I've seen him in 33 years. He sat down and had a conversation with me. He said he's been trying to get in touch with me because his family and him all decided that he should give me my middle back because I deserved metal. And I became emotionally immediately because I never heard any grudge against him. Because after that fight that night, it was so career. I had the interpreter to go to him and ask him if he thought he wanted to fight. He said, no, I know I didn't win the fight. So at that point I could help. I could hold no goods against him. I had to say 31. The album beat him again. But he said, no, I know I didn't win. So that cleared him from all any guilt that I could have had towards him. Did you feel like in Serbia, maybe you should say hey, listen, can we go in the next room and do an Apollo rocky deal and settle this one? You do you want anyway? Yeah, no, because like I said, that night after the Olympics, after the fight when the endeavor to ask him, and he said, no, that kind of killed that fire to do something to him. Because had I not done that, yeah, I probably would have done something when I first saw it. But because I asked him, and he said, no, he know he didn't win. It was nothing I could do. He didn't make the decision. The judges did. But it did motivate you. Oh, yeah. Most definitely. You said four time here with general. I was a four division champion. Middleweight, super middleweight, light heavyweight and heavyweight. First guy in over a 106 years to win middleweight and heavenly titles. Now, yeah, you're right. There's four time means you run the title four times. So I don't want you on my bad side. I'm sorry. That's what a correct idea is to be that guy's Serbia one day. I'm around in the corner and said, you always said I won four times. I didn't want to open up about saying no. But yeah, just after that, man, just got God gave me something that made me understand things differently. So when that happened to me, I immediately wanted to quit, but God knew I wouldn't quit. And that's why I happened to me and not anybody else, because anybody else that may have ruined their life. With me, it turned me the tour opposite direction because I was taught in the way I was raised was you getting knocked down, you get back up and go harder. So the fact that they throw that gold medal made me get on go harder. So that was part of the motivation Roy, but your career, it's so expensive and covers so much ground. What kept you going all those years? Because most fighters I mean, it usually ends badly. You know, the boxing, much better than any of us. But you never stopped. Well, I didn't stop because I felt like God blessed me with something. And just I got the Olympics where people say, oh, that's it, you should quit, you should stop. That's the worst time to stop. If you're gonna do it, you did it because that's what that was something that you wanted to do. So why should people be allowed to tell you when to stop? Because they didn't tell me when to start. I had to tell them when they start and what all I was going to accomplish when I started and how my career was going to go for day for day before I started, then you could tell me when to stop. But if you didn't tell me when to start or you didn't predict my future to me right after I started, then why should I let you tell me when to stop? We're talking to Roy Jones junior who I will state again has won the heavyweight has won the world championship in four different divisions. You thought what Tyson last year? November of 20. Yep, 2020. I mean, at one time, Mike Tyson was the most feared man in the world. He's still here for a little while. What was that like? It was crazy, man. Two things I couldn't believe. To me, I was proud of myself as being one of the fastest fighters ever. So I'm thinking, he gets in front of me and puts his hands here and start his little wiggle. There's no way he can avoid my quick hands. Wrong. I could have bought him. Secondly, I'm thinking well, he's a little older. When you see him everywhere, now, all he's doing is smoking. He.

"He is Roy Jones. Junior the four time heavyweight champion of the world, although you're here this week as a father. Yeah, he has a father, my daughter Reagan came up to two Alabama she's enrolling here. So it's a beautiful thing. You just never know what guys gonna lead you to, you know? Well, it is so great to see you. And I just think I just saw Mike Tyson waiting for you around the corner. You were talking to coach a minute ago and he brought up that he still irritated as anybody who follows boxing about what happened to you in the Olympics in your career since then. It's been really one of the most spectacular in boxing history, but it seems like it all begins there. And for those who don't know, and most of you do, Roy is from Pensacola. So that's really part of Alabama in a way. But you go back to that Olympics. You won the silver and a lot of people who don't know the story of saying Roy Jones failed to win the gold. And it's an interesting story. That's a very interesting story. But, you know, to God be the glory, you just never know what God has in store for you. And I feel like after all, with that defeat, I went to stealing my gold medal. It turned me on hot because I was on lukewarm, but I wasn't on high. You understand me? So when they stole my gold medal, I feel like that was God's way of turning me on high. Because now, even after the Olympics, I had something to prove. How did you not win it? They robbed me. These jerseys say he won to just say I went out was funny.

"To ask you about that because I know how benevolent coach Saban is with all the other entities here in helping various sports teams. But when you take a player in to see him, what does that seem like? I mean, he's been really good with recruiting with us. I mean he goes out of his way to make sure he makes time. We've got kids on official visit, but you walk in. He's obviously got an aura about him. He's won 7 national championships, so you're gonna listen to what he has to say. So depending on how in the football the kid is, it different, but so I'm really into football. You know, I'm really into it. So but even if you're not, I mean, arguably the best team sport coach in modern history. I mean, shoot he's one at every level. He's been at every one national championship at LSU in 6 years. So, you know, kids will ask him different stuff, but he's always talking about what it takes to be successful. How do you add value yourself as a player? What the university has to add value to them? What they have to do for themselves, to add value, and almost motivationally. Get myself motivated to be a better coach. Sometimes when I'm sitting in there, listening to them, talk to some of the recruits, but they all take it well. And he doesn't really get job with it. That is so fascinating because I mean, I know you there have been other coaches in your past. I think Tom izzo, you've mentioned before. Another place to Nick Saban wants worked. Yeah, I hope that was good friends with Tom before I came down here. I think Saban and Tom talked before I even met saving me on my press conference day, getting the job down here so that definitely helped and I knew Tom. But yeah, I mean, Tom was great. I kind of had a different route than most people at this level. I was a high school coach for 11 years before I was Bobby Harley's assistant for two, and then I took over. So I don't have a big tree. I was under, but I was a high school coach and Detroit area and I used to go to Michigan state frequently and coche was great. Invite me in and let me sit on a meeting and go to a bunch of practice. So coach Saban's been great. I like to go to the football praxes and their meetings when I can. So, yeah, I learned where I can from different people, but Saban's been great to me since I've been here for sure. I'm curious before you go coach, because I don't want to keep you from your game. But I am curious about this. You've had this really amazing rise from a successful high school coach to colleges to last year winning the SEC and making a really great run in Alabama's return to the NCAA. I mean, do you walking around or sometime? You're sitting there waiting outside coach Saban's office like going how did I get here? I mean, you definitely have to catch a few breaks in life and I've got a few. So sometimes you sit back and look at where I mean, I want to stick to every chip and romulus in 2013. So 8 years ago, not very long ago in this profession, but yeah, I mean, obviously going to work hard, but you have to catch some breaks. I could have done all the work I did, never caught a break and still been coached in high school. It should have been fine. I'd got to the point in his high school coach. I was pretty happy with the job we done, and he developed a program. But I did catch a few breaks. And when he state championships at a big time school, I know there's pressure. How would you compare that pressure of a high school versus where you are now? Yeah, I mean, it's definitely a lot different. Media every decision you make scrutinize a little bit more criticize a little bit more. You're able to make a lot more mistakes. But again, I come up in a different way, as a high school coach I can experiment with a lot of different ways of playing. I could make big changes in how we played. Nobody's questioning it. But you know, back then, I think I made about $4700 as the basketball coach and the rest of my salary came from a teacher. So if I then perform well, I still had food on the table. Here, you know, they don't let you lose too many years in a row and you'll be in trouble. You gotta win here. So there's definitely a lot more pressure here. But I think that the good ones are competitive, no matter what, whether you're getting paid, pennies on the dollar or making a lot of money, you're still competitive and want to win. And so you put the pressure you put on yourself, still bigger than any outside pressure. And that's about the same to me. Well, it's always great to see coach NATO, all the best tonight, Oakland and Alabama. That would be a scene right here. On the SEC network, about an hour after we go off, I'm sure there'll be a huge crowd and we hope to see a very soon coach. Thanks for having me on. That always great. We're having a break. We're having our next guest. I think you will be familiar with. Introduce one of the all time athletes right after this..

And behind us you can hear Denny chimes and if you're watching, you can look inside Bryant Denny stadium. Danny's a big name around here. Everyone thinks about Saban and bride, but George Denny helped get this place off the ground. Welcome back to the second half of the show. Nate Oates has joined us. The head basketball coach of the university of Alabama last year just an amazing season and I know that that was last year, though. If you have a game tonight, there are fourth game, little inconsistent. We've won all three. So hopefully we can learn while we win, but I'll always to go to where we get to where we got to last year. But we got a good one tonight. Yeah, Oakland. Yeah, they're really good. They beat Oklahoma state at Oklahoma state to almost be West Virginia. They beat Toledo by over 20. So they're playing well, they give us everything we can handle the night. Our guy's gonna be ready to go. It's a team that I've seen many times in the tournament and as everyone else has, I remember sitting here a couple I think it was two years ago, maybe your first season and it was a lot of flux going on. And you were hoping that you could get this thing going and then last year it was just an amazing year. We had John calipari on a couple weeks ago and he made I just kind of rubbed it in a little bit about the record against Alabama last year. He said, no, it's going to be different this year. Get us while they could. They're a little bit better this year for sure. So they're not going to stay down like they were last year very long. But it was fun year last year. It helped having some really good players. I mean herb Jones SEC player of the year and defensive player here only three players in the history of the FCC had done that in the same year and now he's playing minutes for pelicans. So we had some really good players. They gelled together. We had a good season. We're trying to keep the program at a pretty high level. I think we got a chance to do that this year. But we're still working progress. Not even last year, though we were four and three to start the year. So when you get it all gelled together till probably January and February. So everybody at the beginning of the year is working on stuff. It's how quick can they get it together? How much can they get the team to gel and it's common? We got work to do whatever he's got work to do in November. I know a couple hours before a game is not really the best time to philosophize about how you got to this point, but I am interested because you had a plan this is not an easy thing to do. As I say that those of us who have lived in this state know that this is a really good basketball school, but you still have to convince people of that. Yeah, when I got here, I don't think anybody thought I was a basketball school. I mean, I've been to too many NCA tournaments in the recent past, you know, back when coach Sanderson went they had some pros that real players they were making sweet 16, almost on annual basis. You know, when you look at the history, we've got the second most wins and SEC player behind Kentucky. So they do have a really good tradition here. Just wasn't great recently. So we're trying to get it back up there. Last year was a good start in our first year that ended up having an NCA tournament. So we've played in every NSAID term and they've had since I've been here. I don't know that we would have been playing in year one, but we played last year. You know, we made it to the three 16. If we could have made some free throws against UCLA, who knows how far we would have been, but now, you know, the goal is to keep it at a level where you're making the NCA termin every year with a chance to make a run and compete for SEC championships. We just signed the printing on who rang some of the third or fourth ranked recruiting class in the country in the fall period. So the winning last year helped the recruiting this year and I kind of get the snowball effect going and get better players. You look like a better coach and win more games, hopefully continue to get better players. Coach the recruiting has been really spectacular and I mean, there are all kinds of different ways of going about it, but this is not a regional competition. I mean, you're going up against the elite college basketball programs in the country for these athletes. What is the selling point to a school like Alabama? Yeah. You know what, I think the athletic department of Alabama's the best in the country. I mean, it could be argued, but it's definitely top 5, and so we've got all the resources we need here. I think our style of play is one that fits some of the higher level players and we're the fastest I major team in the country. Sudden SEC record for threes made in the game, our first year, we broke our own record. Set a new record last year. You know, we're playing a modern style basketball. They're playing the MBA. We've had three draft picks in two years. So guys are seeing that they can make it to the NBA coming here. So I think between the success we've had, the style play we're playing, the athletic department as a whole. I think guys want to come here when they get here. They see that they do have everything they need to succeed at. This level of basketball. So, you know, hopefully we can continue to win and continue to bring in players and just keep it rolling. Talking to coach and it's interesting, you've got a game in a couple hours. I would be chewing my nails but I'm game day. I'm sure there's so much that happens during a game, but is the preparation done? It kind of is, you know, we just got done with our walkthrough and I came over right after our walk through it. If you haven't put it in by the walkthrough, I mean, what are you gonna drop a new play like that right before the game? You know, you better have all your work done before you walk into walk through on game day. You really should have it all done before. Yesterday's practice. So kind of reminds me you say, you know, be nervous and chewing your nails. Take recruits and to see coach Saban on game days a lot. He's gracious enough to, you know, the last one we had, it was a night game, and he kind of made the point. Listen, if I'm not spinning some time doing some of this stuff, I'll just be sitting here worrying about everything that could go wrong. So I think, you know, you get your team prepared and then you have some confidence that you did what you're supposed to lean into it and they go out and play. So I'd rather be talking to you than worry about everything that might go wrong tonight for sure..

Even if you thought it was going to be you know a dumpster fire you know. It turned out to be To call it a dumpster. Fire was insulted dumpster fires. It means that there's really no chance in any real manner for him to have the fight another exhibition And do it against mike tyson. No there's no reason to see that under any circumstances but what they were trying to strive forts if only field look like tyson and tyson look pretty good when he came back last year if he looked like tyson maybe you could have an exhibition in california between those two guys but holyfield should be nowhere near ring and dan that fight when exactly as i thought it was going because i knew vitor belfort was going to come out with something to prove goes out there and looks spectacular against vendor holyfield. It sets himself up for another payday. And that's exactly what ryan kavanagh and shriller are trying to create. I mean they're out there offering. What thirty million dollars winner. Take all for veto belfort against jake. Paul they're making these they're calling on canelo like what that's all red herring promotional stuff. Because unless i'm missing. I don't ever remember there being an authentic winner-take-all site people say that all the time but it's never true. Nobody's gonna fight for free and i take about. Hey hold on on. Shane mosley apparently did it wasn't by design. It was like winner-take-all for people that story. Shane mosley allegedly bet. A million dollars himself against canelo alvarez in two thousand twelve fight that he says he was paid six hundred thousand dollars four so for getting his ass kicked by cannella. We effectively have to pay four hundred grand. So i mean look when roy jones out shaming when roy jones had his rematch against hopkins. The way that that deal was constructed was that regard god his guarantee from golden boy and a percentage of whatever upside there was what roy jones didn't start to get any money until i reach a certain threshold and it reach that threshold so regret reality was roy. Jones flopper for zero against hopkins in the rematch. Lost in a pretty clear matter You know and they can ask for belford against jake paul. He can go and rant and rave and say i. What if i can oh blah blah blah Given the struggles that trailer has shown In some of these events. I don't think they have thirty million dollars to spend on that kind of fighting. I'm mystified dan. I don't know what their end game is with all this. They took a financial bath on this one. They're gonna take another financial bath on fema lopez against jorge campos. They already have taken a bath on that. Fight the postponement from june. I don't know. I mean ryan kavanagh's got a lot of money. Tillers got deep pockets but at some point you gotta look around and be like we're just burning through hundreds of millions of dollars at this la komi komi cynical. I'm not saying this happened but you say how. How could this go on. So let me pose a theory and i. I don't know if this is true not making accusations. I don't wanna get in trouble with anybody. I'm just saying it comes to your mind. If you know that holyfield belfour is an exhibition. You market it as a real fight and bill for you know is going to go.

Jones e. use stevie to talk about how happy you are about this. Well everybody smile. Would you late daniel okay. Let's see the fact that he's not playing as much as hearts. Real madrid is definitely a philip for liverpool. You know when when you step on the failed and you look at the opposition and you see some remorse and the other side the only thing you know as regardless of what you think of him as a player. He's going to make everybody around him better for everybody around the ease and for the coach. You know that he's going all denies things defensively and this case ramos defensively so this is a huge bull to them as i said. Let's a huge full of pool. Of course you take a look at circuit ronald's not playing in champions league ties and inevitably joe's it's not a surprise that makes horrible readings for real madrid fans. The last set matches didn't feature in they only one three losing seven. Is this disastrous. She say now real madrid. Don't have a hope office more than than more than the best defender he's ten.

Mike Tyson vs. Roy Jones Jr.: What you need to know
"Mike tyson versus roy jones rules concluding on further rules. And the fact that twelve ounce gloves will be used instead of ten. He stated the california state. Athletic commission approved the fight. They will have a ref. They're the referee overseeing the fight under are all normal. Fight professional rules with the exception but a few exceptions. That's the gloves. Like putting an extra kleenex between two trucks crashing. You know so. Basically they're talking about. The gloves is the only exception that these rules are under the state athletic commission and that there will be ref there from the state athletic commission as well. So i don't know a lot of confusion a lot back and forth and it's been fight weeks so i kinda wanna give meeting. Maybe his credit and say maybe he's right. You know. I know i know. He came out on one of these earliest shows that we did earlier this week and he said you know all this is just to drum up interest. I think it was when When the presale broke you know when when they initially Released a press. Release that mike. Tyson roy jones set the pay per view presell Broke the pay per views of presell record. I think that's what many say you know that this might be fake news Strategic put out there to build interest in sight. I don't know if that's true based off the attention that we get when we do. These shows on tyson. I think that tyson just brings them out definitely. Because he's a legend man. He's a legend. Any when i when you save them out. We're not just talking about boxing. Fans he brings out to the the the actresses actors the the entertainers. Everybody comes out. I don't care what walks alive. You know who. Mike tyson. Mike tyson is in the ring. You want to see it and you want to see if you know you can get there early to check out. Mike man this iron mike and roy roy jones junior. Mister flashy mr must. Y'all must've forgot. I don't know how these promoters Maybe they need to mow need us promoting because they dropping the ball on this one man. This is a huge huge. I told you everybody over. Forty on roy jones like this is what you said when you woke up from your net right you had it on your tv. It's all over my tv solo. My wife was showing looking advertising websites. Hard they got mad. Google banner ads on everything now. Obviously i only searched predominantly boxing. So maybe the i'm targeted you know. Because this technology has gotten to the level where they follow keywords and key stroke. So maybe it's it's it's specific to me because i'm already a boxing fan but i think that they're spending money on advertisement many doing a thing man.

The focus pads lately says Tyson looks like the scariest fifty two year old on the planet What's roy jones is plan with tyson. Roy jones lulu lot. Roy jones lot roy jones was one of the most gifted athlete of all time and was completely dominant in his in his prime. But he's not a bona fide heavyweight tyson tyson. Pretty much is how does that first off. What's the weight that what are they doing. A catchweight where. Where's that thing gonna land. Well mike tyson. I spoke to him yesterday. Called me on my birthday. Which was very nice and A mike is lost one hundred pounds. He told me yesterday. One hundred pounds.

Said since mcbride and he was done he was done after that fight and he just said it to me in the ring that night he said. I just don't have this in me anymore.

The our was wasn't fifty four years old But let let's see how he looks. I i know. I know that a lot of boxers of told me that what they see in the gym. Just the speed that they would not want to be hit by that.

'The Last Dance:' Debate over Michael Jordan's trash talking on 1997-98 Chicago Bulls
"More discussion this morning. Of course about the last dance the legacy of Michael Jordan and his Chicago Bulls teams of the nineteen nineties and whether or not the way Jordan governed that group demanded of them held them accountable. Some might say bullied them was fair. Michael Wilbon who covered Jordan Bulls and knows Jordan about as well as anyone in the media. This side of a moderate shod. Join Max Steven A. And discussed the question was Michael Jordan. Too tough on his teammates. What were your thoughts when you heard. What Charles Barkley had to say about Michael Jordan In regards to his treatment of his teammates. Well look everybody's gotTa take on. Michael and how? Ruffy was teammates. Select Selective Prosecution. Was the words he used select. Prosecution said look everybody had a different leadership style. Reason part of the reason for this documentary reasoning exists is because Michael decided okay. I'm going to be able to sort of control the conversation in terms of why I did what I did and how I did it. I it comes out and says hey you know you've had this conversation with them. He wasn't trying to adopt anybody else's leadership style. He was going to do this his way. And when it worked then you had to. You heard him during. I thought the most effective part of the last dance department made me reach for a notebook and put my reporter hat back on his when Michael Said you know. Winning has a price. And if you don't want to buy into the mentality. I am using here. Get out it's GONNA be. It's GonNa be hell for you. I think was the phrase. And so you see all those teams that you see will produc- Winnington and those guys say at the time that we did it. Seem like he crossed the line. Yes as went on. Did we think he was a great teammate? Yes this is not look you can have whatever take you. WanNa have on it and I understand Charleston's take because it was different but nobody else in their time as much I mean magic and Kareem on the way in but it worked and so I even sit. There does interesting mom watching in real time I have not. I did not watch all the episodes of advanced like most people in our business. I wanted to watch in real time with my son. Who's a twelve year old basketball player and his eyes so big? When Michael says certain things to his teammates we are watching the unedited version The watch the PG rated version of the DEUCE and he's like. Wow Dad he has to do that with his teammates. And I'm like I don't know if he had to but it worked they won and that's the bottom line right. There is the quote that tells you at all they won in Jordan's way worked. Max made a great point during the you know there was no Celtics Lakers rivalry. There wasn't because Jordan he was Roy Jones. He was so good. There were no equals. No rivals

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
