Last Friday took me up to Manchester for a new venture.

I’d been asked to commentate on the PBE card, the St Patrick’s Day Showdown, which was on at Bowler’s and being broadcast live on Unilad.

PBE is the creation of James Lindemann, who has recently started out in the tricky business of boxing promotion. This was his third show and the fact that it was going out on a platform like Unilad, which can boast a reach of 27 million on Facebook, is an achievement in itself. His October promotion attracted 600k views and they were hoping for a million this time.
