Steve Bunce (in my opinion), is the best boxing journalist out there! Whoever he presents with: (from Costello to ‘The Welshman’), the show remains informative, entertaining and relevant. Each week, I look forward to the show and have learned so much about boxing as a result of the interviews,...Read full review »

Great insight and really interesting interview with Eddie and Frank 👏🏻👏🏻

A brilliant listen every week; Steve is the consummate professional. He engages the listener and his guests like no one else and his chemistry with Barry, Carl and Richie is a joy

What’s with all this slating of Bunce?! Best in the business, if you don’t like him move on, simple.

If I hear “his excellency’s vision “ one more time. Let’s be clear; it’s just about money. Vision… pfffft

Your a great presenter! Ignore these fools🥊

I know he’s doing it to generate eyebralls and attention for a slightly underwhelming showdown with Usyk (i dont think their styles will gel), but if i was Fury i wouldnt be showing my face in public after his last Ngannou outing, let alone unleashing yet another verbal tirade against a classy...Read full review »

Your knowledge and experience is unparalleled - thank you. Just listened to the Chris Eubank interview….very powerful. Much appreciated. X

Extraordinary. Thank you

How does Bunce continue to hang onto his role as frontman for this once great show? Insulting to hear him doing a Steve McClarenessque accent when interviewing foreign fighters. He rarely criticises those that need criticising. If you're after a boxing show that's going to increase your...Read full review »

…Bunces bidet on Eddie , Frank Smith or Frank Warren or his Steve mcClaren impression when interviewing Linares ..proper foreign accent syndrome 🙉🙉🙉🙉😬

Very disappointed to see this podcast decline over the recent years. This is still one of my go to podcasts but this only because i haven’t found another UK boxing podcast that is on the same level. I love Steve but he is so vanilla, despite having the BBC behind him there is no real journalist...Read full review »

One of my favorite boxing podcasts but this episode was as bad as the heavyweight division at the minute. I loved it when buncey put it on the wbc president Thsts a good boxing journalist doing his job, I’m amazed you can sit and listen to frank and not once question the ridiculous things coming...Read full review »

Steve Bunce is one of the most informed individuals on his subject and I find his analysis, knowledge and take on all subjects relating to boxing fascinating. I actually find that comes across stronger in his TV and radio work, as a summariser, than while leading the pod. However, two things real...Read full review »

I’ll give it a 5 star rating because it’s one of my go to boxing podcasts, but on most recent episode (Usyk-Dubois preview) Bunce sounded either drunk or was experiencing a stroke while recording. Barry Jones is excellent and so was Costello.

in a week where inoue won an outstanding fight and the spence crawford about to happen on saturday … the 5 live team interview an average boxer and an average trainer … for an hour … hardly anything on the real news… keep up with the program team! … standards are slipping.
rup3sh via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 07/28/23
The best analysis of the current fights and a great delve in to the fights and characters from yesteryear. I look forward to the commentary of the fights as they both picture the scene so well. Bunce is a colossus within the boxing world, no other sports analyst gets the access to fighters /...Read full review »

BUNCY! Canada loves you!!! Need a big card over here so I can grab a selfie!

Used to be worth listing to but absolutely unbearable now not interested in hearing from female boxers with constant comparisons to male boxing like there achievements are equal
Subsidies elapsing via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 06/29/23
Used to be the go to for quality content, since Costello left and BBC cover Matchroom on 5 live you barely get decent coverage of any other promoter. Plus the casual racism from Bunce’s accent changes and pigeon English when he interviews foreigners is truly shocking. Sadly better pods out there...Read full review »

No objectivity whatsoever! A deal has clearly been done with DAZN and that’s pretty much all the boxing that is now covered on this podcast! Sunny Edwards fight on DAZN was given the biggest build up possible (his opponent was 25-1) while there was almost no mention of Taylor v Lopez an...Read full review »

I like Bunce but he needs a regular co-host to contain him. Bunce is like a spirit, good in small doses. What really irks me is that for a serious boxing show, it just ignores the big international fights and endlessly obsesses over the latest Fury and AJ news. Endless updates about heavyweight...Read full review »

Yes simply the best I listen to a number of the boxing pods , but this incredible double act is unsurpassed, recently retired I run on a cross trainer most days through the week to try to get fitter , the pain of doing this is eased considerably when listening to the pod !! Could I suggest a...Read full review »

Sadly it’s just a woman’s boxing show now. No mention of big fights unles it’s heavyweight.
Mark stock via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 05/19/23
Fed up with Bunce perpetuating this ludicrous notion than Joshua is anything other than an over hyped joke of a fighter at the top level . Has not beaten ANYONE . No chin , no stamina , lack of heart and athleticism . Talks a great fight . Charming. Would look great in a men’s underwear advert ....Read full review »

This is an outstanding podcast by two pros who know boxing. It’s a very enjoyable listen. I couldn’t believe they didn’t devote a segment to the March 25 Benavidez - Plant fight. Most of the US boxing fans ARE very casual but there are boxers outside of Britain. I’ve noticed in both boxing and...Read full review »
Baxter McMaster via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/01/23
I’ve listened to this pod for many a year, the fight series during lockdown when you broke-down fights was a sense of peace during a very tough time (Joe Goosen talking about Corrales - Castillo my favourite) but I can’t believe what it’s become. Steve Bunce does not have an opinion between those...Read full review »

Thought the pod might never recover after the mighty Mike left but although dearly missed it’s still as brilliant as ever! Helped take my boxing interest from a box office fan to a weekly watcher and listener and even made it to a few fights! Keep up the good work Buncey & co
MattFarrar83 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 03/08/23
The most fearless and integral interview conducted by an ethical professional. MR Steve Bunce please take a bow.
A----------------------------- via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 02/26/23
Love this boxing show it’s the best out there for not sucking up to the industry. Loved Steve grilling The WBC president who was very dismissive and annoyed with the questions. This whole Benn situation is a joke and I won’t be watching him ever again. Keep up the good work guys.
Kylewarrington via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 02/24/23
Great boxing journalism by the legendary Steve Bunch. Excitable and thoroughly enjoyable week in, week out. You won’t be disappointed.

I loved Carl fighting, but Buncey, please stop him talking about himself please.
exthatcher via Apple Podcasts · Sweden · 12/26/22
Great podcast for my weekly boxing insight but I do miss Mike Costello and how he and Steve used to feed off each other. Barry Jones is a great inclusion but please no more Carl Froch. He’s too full of himself to have a reasonable and sensible debate and is still licking his wounds from his...Read full review »

Great shows in the back catalogue, but really disappointed in that interview last week with Eddie Hearn. The issues surrounding why they were going to plough on with the fight until the Mail broke the failed drug test…now tests, were not even touched upon. Have to say Adam Catterall and Simon...Read full review »

Mike Costello leaving was a blow to this podcast. Nevertheless Steve Bunce is the man for facts, figures and stories. He is quite simply an undisputed expert. Where the journalism fails is in its lack of enthusiastic curiosity and interrogation of the corruption in the sport. Yes Steve does what...Read full review »

Pointless listening since Mike Costello left. The co-presenters are great but Steve Bunce daren’t say anything even slightly critical of fighters, promoters and definitely whichever network he’s working the fight for. There are many much more honest boxing podcasts around sadly as I used to enjoy...Read full review »

This is the best boxing podcast, Steve Bunce is not everyones cup of tea but he is quite simply the best person to listen to about British Boxing. He always has great opinions and inside scoops and talks sense. The content is great, the interviews are always full and relevant its a privilege to...Read full review »

This was one of my favourite pad casts when MC was on but unfortunately I cannot understand a word that Barry Jones says so it’s became pointless listening as I only get SB point of view.
