On June 11th 2005, Monaghan's Kevin McBride wrote his name into the boxing history books in Washington D.C as he defeated Mike Tyson in front of the 20,000 spectators in attendance. The Clones Colossus was a huge underdog going into the fight, yet it was he who prevailed victorious as Tyson failed to get off his stool for round 7. Its just gone past the 15th anniversary of that contest and McBride who retired in 2011 is now working for a tree surgeon in Boston, USA; a place were Kevin has lived for nigh on 20 years. I was delighted to interview Kevin yesterday and to chat to him about the famous win over Iron Mike, and got his thoughts on why he didn't manage to build momentum from that win.
To listen to 5 songs that Kevin chose for this podcast, you can hear them along with this interview by visiting the below link. The interview on its own is here to abide by platform rules.
I hopr you enjoy the show!
