Worlds apart but quickly finding common ground Tony Bellew and Jamie Laing might just be the best double-act you’ve never heard. Blowing Tony away from the start by revealing he’s yet ANOTHER huge Bellew fan, Jamie frequently turns the tables and becomes the interviewer. He delves deep into the boxer's psyche, as well as stumping Tony with a question he's never been asked before. What seems an unlikely duo becomes one of the most hilarious, heart-warming and revealing episodes yet. Tony challenges Jamie to test out his Scouse accent (no surprise, it’s awful), delves deep into his upbringing and they share stories of childhood betrayal. We hear why both think men turn to anger so quickly, how Jamie’s dream of playing rugby for England was shattered and the VERY unexpected reason behind his Strictly injury. With some Willy Wonka, Hugh Hefner and Russell Crowe quotes thrown in for good measure you have to trust us when we say this is one hell of a punchy episode.

Claressa Shields

Claressa Shields

One of the greatest female fighters of all time, the US's Claressa Shields, laces up the gloves and gets Tony on the ropes. The only boxer in history, male or female, to hold all four major titles in boxing simultaneously, in two weight classes, as well as two Olympic gold medals, Claressa is a force to be reckoned with. In 2020 she switched from boxing to Mixed Martial Arts and promptly won her debut with a TKO. Growing up with her grandmother in Flint, Michigan, she admits to always being super competitive at everything she did. From bowling to playing pool, to guys challenging her to boxing matches. If someone told her she couldn't do something it only made her try harder. And, as Tony discovers, you have to be careful which company you put her in when talking about her fellow boxers!

Everton fan Tony swallows his pride to let Liverpool legend, pundit and good mate Jamie Carragher on the show. As they sit down to chat all things anger, Carra reveals some of his earliest frustrations as a kid came from being way better at football than the rest of the kids at school. He wanted to win so badly he would get sent off for speaking too harshly to the ref or his team mates. That drive and determination to win took him right through his long career at Liverpool FC. However, he admits that playing for the team where he grew up added untold pressures, his competitiveness was too much for his fellow players and it eventually led him to consult a sports psychologist. As well as offering incredible insight into his career, Jamie reveals some of the locker room punch-ups he witnessed over the years, tells Tony which manager wound him up the most and how he feels footballers have gone soft. He even tells all about what winds him up as a pundit. P.S. Don't mention Gary Neville!
