With Billy Joe Saunders being retired by his corner against Canelo Alvarez, the issue of quitting has again been brought into sharp focus. The Opening Bell podcast discusses all this and more

IN light of Billy Joe Saunders being retired by his corner against Canelo Alvarez, the issue of quitting has again been brought into sharp focus.

Matt Christie and Alex Steedman re-examine that contest, its ending, and ask if it’s time for the sport to change its ways in regard to labelling badly injured fighters as ‘quitters’.

The gruelling battle between Micky Ward and Arturo Gatti is remembered in This Week In History and the worst consequences of bravery in the ring are highlighted as we pay tribute to Johnny Owen via the book, The Big If, The Life and Death of Johnny Owen.

An episode not to be missed.
