Jack Slack's written work for The Fight Primer, Vice Sports, and other publications.
We contrast the furious pace and rough house infighting of Josh Warrington, with the Wincobank style switch hitting of Kid Galahad. Plus some Tyson Fury.
We take a quick look at some of the cool bits from UFC 238, including Old Slacky's REAL thoughts on Valentina Shevchenko.
Donald Cerrone is back at lightweight and looking the sharpest on the feet he has in years. Tony Ferguson has returned from his forced hiatus and is ready to chase down the title shot he has been promised for two years. It’s a hell of a match up and we’re going to get into it.
It is hard to think of anyone who has improved their overall mixed martial arts game as much as Henry Cejudo in such a short amount of time. In the space of a few fights he changed from a one-note wrestler into a capable and dangerous counter striker. But Marlon Moraes is something quite different to the opponents that Cejudo has struck with before and could spell disaster for the flyweight champion.
Anthony Joshua lost his scheduled opponent a few weeks back and now finds himself with the thankless task of fighting the awkward, durable, fast handed Andy Ruiz.
Katie Taylor looks to become the undisputed lightweight champion of the world this weekend. We take a look at her terrific left hook and the so-so state of women’s boxing.
The Fights Gone By podcast provides a tongue-in-cheek look at the world of combat sports and martial arts generally. We examine the constant stream of bizarre news which moves at break neck speeds in mixed martial arts, examine match ups, analyse fights, and answer listener mail. FGB is entirely independent and is made possible by listeners. Join the Patreon to hear lectures on the history of combat sports from boxing's heavyweight championship to the founding and growth of the UFC and PRIDE.
We try to recover our hype for the Bellator welterweight tournament, weeks after Rory MacDonald said his heart isn't in it anymore.
A humbled Jack returns to give the champ her dues.
We get excited for one of the best looking cards in a long old time.
We recap a rare weekend of fights which mostly took place at a reasonable time in the UK. Also Gus retired.
