My guest on this podcast is top trainer and 2019 IBHOF inductee James "Buddy" McGirt. We discussed Buddy's recent work in the corner of WBO Light Heavyweight Champion Sergey Kovalev, as well as young prospect and 2016 Olympian Janibek Alimkhanuly. We also discussed Buddy's HOF career and legendary fights with Frankie Warren, Saoul Mamby, Howard Davis, Meldrick Taylor, Simon Brown and Pernell Whitaker. We talked about his notorious management team Al Certo and Stuart Weiner. We then got into his adjustment to retiring from the ring and his becoming a trainer of champions such as Arturo Gatti, Antonio Tarver and Vernon Forrest. It was a really great conversation - enjoy!
