The former WBO World Heavyweight boxing champ Michael Bentt joined Joe and Kevin fresh from his appearance in Episode One of the hit Netflix series Losers, which celebrates sport's favourite 'failures'.

Michael discussed his poor relationship with his abusive father and lack of love for the sport that saw him become world champion.

We also discussed his sparring with Evander Holyfield, beating Tommy Morrison, being in a coma for 96 hours after defeat to Herbie Hide, and his life in acting in films like Ali and Million Dollar Baby after hanging up his gloves professionally.
