With plans to launch shows from various cities, across North America and eventually around the world, Talkin’ Fight is now broadcasting The Scoop each weekday and The Female Fist on Fridays.The wheels for Talkin’ Fight were set in motion in a pub in Toronto a few years ago when friends would gather and talk about boxing matches they had seen or fights that were upcoming, as well as those brash new fighters that were being groomed for vaunted titles or those celebrated titans from years gone by, then Covid-19 hit us. Soon enough, with a Zoom here and a YouTube there, a channel was born, and we were Talkin’ Fight once again online. That conversation is now known as The Friday Night Panel.
Shortly afterwards another friend, known as Neil The Deal, joined the group wanting to highlight the boxers he had grown up watching fervently and also bringing to light the careers and achievements of boxers recently retired, and the upcoming crop of young boxers currently catching his eye. Neil, having boasted that he has watched over 10,000 bouts in his lifetime, is passionate about the sport and invites guests onto his show regularly, in particular to discuss life after boxing and their impact on the community.
Mike Orr, one of the original members of The Friday Night Panel, has subsequently launched his own show, called Knuckle Up. The impetus for this stream of content was two-fold: to focus not only on great new boxers from around the world, but in particular women who choose to step into the ring and to specifically tell their stories and help grow their sport.
Talkin’ Fight founder Graeme Boyce is proud to announce two new shows have been launched very recently: The Scoop, featuring Canadian heavyweight boxing champion Bola Ray Olubowale, and The Female Fist, featuring another Canadian boxing champion, Scarlett Delgado. The former first broadcast in January 2021, and airs live nightly at 8:30pm Monday to Friday, while the latter has aired the debut, and will broadcast each Friday at noon. Knuckle Up airs at 4pm, and Neil The Deal at 7pm – all times EST.
“Bola Ray primarly focuses on issues facing the industry, given his wealth of experience,” says Boyce, “while Scarlett is going to passionately reveal the world of female fighters for us each week, including the trainers, nutritionists and managers required to develop a champion, not to mention the natural talent and earnest commitment. We are now very excited to begin attracting new contributors and growing a vast library of content.”
