It's one of the most fit sports you can do. And if I if I didn't feel so lumbering and out of shape and everything because we've been very lumbering because the word you'd use? Yeah, well, I'm not quick on the feet. You know your light on your toes on you. I am.

Trev:

Laughter me. Yeah.

Wayne:

Yeah.

Trev:

Yeah, but yeah, dreams in the morning. window. Flash

Wayne:

boy, boxing, order running the stamina. When you get in a fight. There's nothing like that adrenalin rush. You get that? You know, you burn out in about 10 seconds drove it? I mean, you're always fighting for one or the other. You always get in fights, so you must understand.

Trev:

Yeah, yeah, I don't get that to be honest. And there's a short fuse to short fuse Maybe

Wayne:

it comes across like that. Yes, he does. He always lives in it with me. I don't know why but

Trev:

yeah, he's only Yeah, yeah, there's especially for this one.

Wayne:

It's getting a bit serious. I'm looking at him. But this is white collar boxing trend coming on now is a bit like Fight Club. And if he's one of them,

Trev:

yeah, you know, one of them. Yeah. And

Wayne:

I don't know if offence it I don't like the Fight Club thing. Really just going to get better just to make yourself feel better about everything else in your life.

Unknown:

Why are you talking about it? Because I just finished rotor Fight Club.

Wayne:

I was the first one. Okay. And it's the second one. I know. Yes. I want to get out and you're talking about it? Yes. I'm gonna its own its own menu in the back. But I knew I'd push you to it, you would. with no further ado, we go over to Glen. Glen, welcome to the show. So Glen, thank you for joining us today. You are the owner I guess and the operator Club up club. Can you tell us what the club club is about Glenn and the background etc? Yeah, sure. Thanks

Glen:

for having me on guys for the pleasure, no problem. What it is, it started off to me I've always been involved in fighting ever since I was a young kid. It's huge benefits come from it. And when my eldest son was started getting into it, and he was arguing, you train me down, I took him to a few gyms and he would sit on the floor training with you and I thought to myself, I don't think I am fully equipped to actually provide the best training for him. So that sort of sparked my knowledge into training into how to structure lessons and it's sort of sparked from there really and I've just absolutely fallen in love with it started taking on more clients and it's just grown from there it's blown up

Trev:

because you're you're qualified PT are new as well.

Glen:

Yeah, I started off. I mean, I've always been involved in fitness. I joined the army when I was seven eight. And I represented the army doing powerlifting strongman and combined service levels I was taking on the Air Force and Navy and stuff like that. So I was a bit of a Chunky Monkey shall we say?

Trev:

We just we just

Glen:

said that's where I've always had a fitness background. I've worked in the gym in bits and bobs like that and so it sort of grew from there. And when I come out there why'd you get yourself in package where you get a good cup of ground to spend on what you want and I was knew exactly what I wanted and I went straight for the high end deployment and personal training and it took me to quite advanced sort of you know, injury prevention stuff like that. And then when my next qualification got there was a coaching qualification where it was how to look after the athlete the mindset of the athlete talks about performance enhancing drugs, how to deal with social media how to deal with the media and how to get funding for your sport how to you know, you're covered you name it really really

Trev:

detailed and deep in it to be honest Glenn? It really is Yeah. I'm no I would never thought it would cover stuff like that. I really wouldn't but then he saw all in a lot of that it's in the mind isn't it? That's the wine and yeah, that's the thing is willpower and mind over matter, isn't it? So dealing with injuries and pain? Yeah, I never really thought about that I really didn't notice like something else there.

Glen:

Yeah. And then after that I then I went on to my immediate boxing coach qualification and and I'm literally my next one up is going to be my advanced boxing coaches which I'm still debating whether to do that post COVID just so I can get my hands on in the gym and interact with people again or if I if I am impatient, which more likely is going to be me I will just do it offline online. So that's where I'm at the mind and qualification wise.

Wayne:

You coach an inside like you got like a club blend and or do you train also externally in parks etc?

Glen:

Yeah, I mean, we've at the moment I've got my own I hate this. I don't know why I hate this or that or we're you know, I've got my own Fitness Studio I hate when people say

Trev:

hairdressing studio Yeah,

Wayne:

that's the main problem

Trev:

number one client wind Yeah, I've got money wasted see when ya know that money and nearly blew it but I talked him into doing the head masala because he doesn't like he's got he got his first client as well, which is good.

Wayne:

But they say Glenn about taking kids off the street with boxing and obviously, I'm guessing you know, kids that live in urban areas and everything there's a lot of aggression pent up and and they need to get it is that what they mean by that? When when obviously they go boxing is that discipline you need to carry it out?

Glen:

Definitely. It's a way of channelling. I mean, at the end of the day, fighters are going to fight. So Isn't it better to get them off the street? I mean, the less the more I used to fight the less I what I felt like I had to prove it to people is weird. It's like the more efficient at fighting I become, the less I The more I could someone could call me or Excuse My French like a wangka to my face. And I think I can get over it. I can look past that because I know I can efficiently handle myself. It's like let's act to prove and I think this is this current thing with a knife carrying you know, it's no one wants to be seen as weak. No one wants to back down. If you lose, they normally come back with a knife because they can't deal with, you know, shaking and stuff. Yeah, it's

Trev:

an ego thing, isn't it? Glenn? Definitely. Your ego takes over.

Glen:

Definitely. And the way this is I always struggle with this when people say to me, oh, what's your sort of clientele who you ask that you try and say you're off to young lads without

Unknown:

Yeah, that's

Trev:

a good tagline.

Glen:

I'm having difficulty at home. Are you saying?

Trev:

Exactly, yeah. Yeah, that's not sort of thing to have on yourself business card is

Wayne:

when is the best time for somebody to start to maximise their boxing skills Glenn for you know, I suppose as early as possible, isn't it?

Glen:

Definitely. I mean, if you come into boxing, it's 16. And then you go against the lab that's been fighting since he was five or six, obviously, there's going to be there's going to be that knowledge gap because it just is it's a career it's not like I'm going to do a box of course and now the box is 2030 years of learning something every day a little bit, get a little bit better, right? So there is going to be that gap but I've always honestly believed that it doesn't matter you could walk into the gym tomorrow and be off the gym by hard work natural abilities talent it's never too late. So if you're you know the back end of it if you're in your 30s 40s and thinking about Mike's give that a go but I swear to god walking Fungineer is boxing Jiu, what can we bring? If you're local to the area hook me up? It's never ever too late.

Trev:

I'm glad you came because that's what all these podcasts is about, about taking up new and different things. So you virtually just did all the chores they might. Yeah, exactly. That's brilliant.

Glen:

It's so true, though. He it's never too late. I mean, I mean, I'll tell you a bit about myself. I'm 32 at the moment and I literally plan on fighting till I'm 5060 or wherever until the ticket gives out if I was to die in the room and I sound dramatic. If I were to die in the ring and I'll be fine with crying Don't cry because I went out doing why I love it. It's never too late and there's there's a there's a there's a level for everyone. Like you it doesn't matter if you're the worst part in the world there is a platform for you somewhere where there's someone of equal talent equal age equal weight class who will match you up and you can friends and family who comes in you can train hard keep getting paid and there's a fight for you somewhere.

Trev:

So what you've what's your

Wayne:

What have you basically won Glen boxing, what have you

Glen:

Well, I can't come by so maybe

Wayne:

you should have to pitch that differently should know I should have said

Glen:

I've done it I've done a few shoots a bare knuckle bits and bobs which do not talk about But yeah, I have actually. But you know, I'm open to a whole new world but long story short, I grew up with traveller family where you know, fighting was just like having a cup of tea. So it's just the way we've always done it but I wanted I want to get my kids into the in the room basically. Doing that side of things.

Wayne:

I think I saw one of your children in a video that on your page blend with smacking jabbing basically pretty hard for a young lead smacking, taking the hell out of you old in the pads. Yeah.

Glen:

Yeah, he loves it and I mean at first it was you know the odd bit here and there and now we start to ask me When can we try and next really nice, really nice to see and I for a mutual friend. There's Hockley Boxing Club.

Unknown:

Yes,

Glen:

they are. They've they're really good stepping stone for young lads. I would recommend that to anyone. They've had a few of their fighters go on to be quiet. quite high level, you know, and they really support young fighters in there. If you've got a young guy who's keen to fight that's the gym to go to. Yes. I personally buy out of the locker room in the south end. I made it all the way up to my first bite in the room. And then the day of the COVID day of lockdown.

Unknown:

Cheers. Good.

Glen:

Yeah. So it was stressful. You build

Wayne:

up to that. Don't you go new you prepare yourself mentally to get in the ring. You're ready to go. It's pulled away.

Unknown:

Yeah.

Trev:

I saw a cleaner.

Glen:

Yes, a fight night was the day of when the country went into lockdown. And we went out on the drink and stayed because we saw the fires. We all just sort of didn't know what to do of ourselves. We hadn't drunk in months, we trained so hard. And then we didn't come about but I'm keen to get back in soon as possible since the locker room opens again,

Trev:

with with your training claim with the box in the talking to the mental side a little bit earlier, do you because It must be hard for like it would be hard for someone like myself to actually hit another person. So when you kind of train people to sort of train them to handle that side of it. Does that make sense? So my

Glen:

Yeah, I mean, everyone's different. It's hard to put For me personally, I've always had an attraction to fight and obsession would be a problem of a better word to use. But I've always been obsessed with fighting on shape or form. Like I if I weren't fighting, I'd be on YouTube watching fights in the street. I mean, you know, my wife thought there was something wrong with me. She said, there's something wrong with this obsessive. It's almost sick. It's like a sickness in me. And it's the sport keeps me you know?

Wayne:

Which is good to be honest, isn't it? That's a good message. To be honest. You've never seen us on such good behaviour even since the guy we spoke to from Russia was on the other way. From the KGB. Were on my best behaviour today. I've noticed. Yeah.

Unknown:

Yeah. You blame it on.

Trev:

But yeah, I'd say that's the thing I think mentally I would struggle with, I think, help me was if they put a pitcher of wines face on whatever. I could just pummelled you could only improve on that. But yeah, I could actually I could really go.

Wayne:

Actually, I'm gonna I'm gonna ask Laney I'm gonna ask his opinion. But then you've got Trevor, who was known as the cat when he played football in golf, because he had quick reflexes and he likes his running and everything. And he got me who's strong and sort of, you know, 17 stone. And, you know, not very quick, but you know, got that who would win? Oh,

Glen:

I like questions.

Trev:

Remember, quick lab. How'd y'all play? No.

Wayne:

metaphorical trip so people can work out what kind of boxes

Glen:

in if it was in a ring with a ref and sets of rules? I think that trip would win. If it was Thorpe's street by wine, wine.

Wayne:

Really sat on the fence with that one. I like that.

Trev:

Yeah, yeah. What wine what are the reason wine balled up because you really do a good batter in random ring.

Wayne:

He always goes down this road. Sorry about this, Glen. But yeah,

Glen:

that reminds me put me in that tub. That massage parlour. Definitely.

Trev:

He's amazing. We can get out of it. It really is. It's kind of

Wayne:

and talking of batterien ring. Not that has anything to do with it. But I was just wondering, Glen, if you'd like to take part in our weekly quiz called tester guest just a bit of fun. Yes. Standby for our little jungle.

Glen:

I've never been good at tests. But yeah, now

Wayne:

it's all it's all fun. As you know, I'll go out of my way to make Trevor say something silly. Don't worry about that. Don't worry about that. But here's our little doodle.

Unknown:

A be

Wayne:

the secret's out now don't tell it there we go.

Unknown:

test. The test, test test test.

Wayne:

Sorry about that. But we don't have

Unknown:

that recorded live because that would be impressive. We'd

Wayne:

be we'd be Allah, Allah Jones on singing the snowman and

Trev:

grabbing on to your testicles.

Wayne:

First question to you Glenn. I think this is a nice one for you to start and this one is actually multiple choice the rest I'll just won't even give Trevor an inkling of an answer but what boxing weight class is the heaviest from these? Is it fly away Bantam weight or featherweight?

Glen:

lump in a heavyweight since I was 15 so I've never really cared.

Wayne:

What is heavyweight. Glen just have

Glen:

it 92 over.

Wayne:

That means I'll be fighting Anthony Joshua. He's mad. Yeah. To be honest, nothing could be no no. No, just being sorry. But yeah, sorry, Glen. So I'm putting you off flyweight Bantam weight and featherweight which is the heaviest out of them ones

Unknown:

flow into February. I've always got time to wait.

Wayne:

I hate to do this to a guest Don't worry, it's quite it's quite it's quite a regular occurrence to be honest. They're not necessarily related to anything. Now I've got to make sure that Trevor doesn't do any good right

Trev:

I'm gonna say this way because it could Denali bomber the beaded bomber that could take you wine, give me the question.

Wayne:

me Take me in the ring. Oops, that doesn't sound right does it? Sorry. I'm gonna say this one because there is a chance you might know and if you don't, then you know maybe a clown you out but so it Lennox Lewis was defeated by hasim Rahman in 2001. What excuse did he give his promoter for his lack of focus? And I just want I'm sorry, sorry my

Trev:

when I get it wrong in contenders no answers

Wayne:

you've got just guessed the answer. And I'll let Glenn answer it to get his point back. Come on this much. Wasn't really stretching, not stretching that but go for that. Go Go and educate him please.

Glen:

Why if I've got if I've got this right, because while ago, it when he was jet lagged and tired because he was filming.

Wayne:

This man doesn't know his stuff. He was factually his excuse was he was filming Ocean's 11 or was he doing doing work as a camera man?

Glen:

I probably remember in that film.

Trev:

for about two seconds. He was probably masturbating on the planning. Oh, is

Wayne:

that what you said? died? Yeah. Yeah. Next one to you. Glenn. You say you've got your point back so you're good. American boxer. This is the one I was going to give trip to half test him again. But he's gonna know this man. Because it's movie related. American boxer James J. Braddock was given the nickname inspired by popular fairytale story. What is it? I don't want to give this to Trev. If I have to give you a million close, I'll do it. Think of the clock striking that 12 o'clock and turning into pumpkins and things?

Glen:

Sorry, thanks. Cinderella. Are

Wayne:

you related? Yeah. And opposite of woman.

Unknown:

Opera opposite of

Wayne:

well done. He knows this stuff. Right. As long as I don't have to give it to Trevor. I hate it when he gets things right. He goes on about it for weeks. Well done. Cinderella. Man. Did you know that Trev you would have known that when? Yeah.

Unknown:

You knew me? Yeah. Would it? Was

Wayne:

it a film with Russell Crowe? Yeah, yeah. Yeah. Right. Next question to you. Trev. These good is not multiple choice. How old was George Foreman? Not when he invented the grill when he become the oldest heavyweight champion. It's just a number.

Trev:

Are you saying it's just enough because he was gonna be between

Wayne:

one and sort of something in it. You know? Well, one was he so you can can have for you. So

Trev:

was he as old as Joe Bogner?

Wayne:

is probably better looking to be honest. And to talk.

Unknown:

Yeah,

Wayne:

but just have a guess. I mean, you're not gonna you're not gonna. You're always gonna be the oldest Heavyweight Champion, the oldest heavyweight champ 45.

Trev:

Oh, God, how

Unknown:

did you do that? Oh my god. Did you just go?

Trev:

I feel like Rocky Balboa rotted up those steps in Philadelphia now.

Wayne:

Right, because he got one right. I'll go quickly to Glen. Glen, in which round? Did Anthony Joshua defeat Vladimir Klitschko in their heavyweight share showdown in 2017.

Unknown:

Oh,

Glen:

good. Wah. Six or 96196199 bit more

Wayne:

people. Okay. A bit more. A bit more.

Unknown:

11. Yeah.

Wayne:

Excellent. Well, let's get started about that.

Trev:

But yeah, he said six.

Wayne:

But yeah, I think we all watched that one where he was I was we were in the pub at that time travelling Where? Yeah.

Unknown:

Yeah, yeah.

Glen:

Did a draft make the decision means that went ran off with that. Yeah.

Trev:

Very quickly, clean just on that subject of like, televised boxing. Do you think the pay per view is a real con?

Glen:

Oh, you know what pissed me off when I got when I started to buy light Sky Sports and sky box by the channels. And then suddenly, I'm still paying out from my pay per view on top of that. Yeah. Yeah, it gets ridiculous then after that.

Trev:

Yeah, I'm glad we cleared that up. Because the pay per view thing that all the lads have now worked by the box in and stuff and they used to be able to kind of see where before we could before COVID you could all get together and make a note of it and oh by a fire their age but if you're 25 that's terrible and he really used especially for something that it's not like a football match he could be over within three minutes

Unknown:

yeah

Wayne:

you know I don't know why recharging people the other day for that

Glen:

destroyed in the US yeah

Wayne:

it was a lucky punch you just proved it was a lucky punch in the first fire it really did yeah,

Glen:

I dropped him he dropped in a couple of times in the last fire yeah and he just comes back with that absolute you know that famous saying I only take one plan Yes,

Wayne:

we have a heavyweight over there Yeah, that's how I'm gonna get you with Trev but we're not going to just just one lucky punch yeah one last question to you Trev before we finish it's not a suit quite an easy one actually. So just to make you feel pressure which boxing promoters five come on you go get this which boxing promoters favourite expression is only in America

Trev:

on King

Wayne:

I hate to do it, but it's correct. Yeah, that's it that's the end test the guests for this week get

Trev:

up in the morning my hair looks like Don kings used to

Wayne:

your paid puppy looks like Don King upside down today. Thanks for taking part in neckli Yes, again, so just sort of summing up and everything that you say like any age obviously if you're going to take up boxing as a as a sport for your life, start as early as you can like you are with your boys. And but if you want to start our age, I mean Trevor Noah I don't like to set too much but we do put it out there that we're sort of 50 odd. He could still get away we can still do so well. Well, hold on. Hi. Go free mumps free mumps three months Yeah.

Trev:

And he's older than obviously older than me. Glenn by free masters.

Wayne:

Yes. Okay. Let's talk about acting your age again. You know, I mean, effective 50 year old didn't hear enough 50 rights, arguing about free mumps. But you know, we could if we decided I'm not being funny offensive at all my life. I did do a little bit when I was about eight. But you know, and you're just fell away for whatever reason, a place called used to be called Lindisfarne in Salford used to be quite well known. But I fancied it now because I thought because the ultimate fitness of it. What would we expect for somebody that hasn't done any sort of cardio work probably for at least a year.

Glen:

It's it's basically it's the one of the hardest spokes in the world not to put you off but you'll burn hundreds and hundreds of calories and get in the best shape of your life. But you don't realise you're doing it because you're so concentrating on you know, keeping your chin down hitting the target listen to the combination working out your breathing there's so much to focus on. There's so much you don't know if I say to you give me 1000 burpees you'd be like to get to the same end goal but you don't realise this it's just so much to it you just burn is neither workout like it in the world. It's just it's hard.

Trev:

I've To be honest, I've only I've been to I've only ever been to one boxing match that was a charity thing that was put on in southie. And one of our guys in the in the village Daniel, he fought for his dad kind of a charity thing. To be honest, he is a big guy and it looked absolutely trained ages four and it just looks such hard work and he was so kind of ragged, we did win, which was really good. But that freaked me out a bit because I don't know about obviously you've got a lot of friends in that kind of that game plan. But seeing friends of yours ski here and then encouraging them to hit other people. But the adrenalin in the room is incredible, isn't it? Yeah,

Glen:

it is not really? Yeah. Is that so? How

Unknown:

do you control that?

Glen:

is so much to explain, but it's I look at if someone hits me in the fire I don't think oh, they're better than they are this is the I think I allow them to hit me. So it's not that they're better than me it's that I let them hit me by not slipping or moving quick enough. Yeah. So so I'm so focused on the job in hand and there's a little bit of aggression to it but it's a controlled it's controlled environment it's like you've got you've got to get that job done it's completely different well to say of free fire where you know, that's you put someone under fight stress and they'll just revert to the most basic fine skills without shooting down.

Wayne:

cuddling them and wrestling on the floor gentlemen, was that just me? I don't know. But

Trev:

we've why Yeah, that's why we call it a lover fun. Just run out at Mary Kay and just hugging cases just

Wayne:

now but I do understand. I've been in a few you know, strictly street fights, if you can call them that, but he's exactly that my address. gets the better of me when I thought I was it. I used to do martial arts and I actually won a competition, funnily enough, but I haven't done it for a few years. This is going back a long time trip before we knew jokes and then but I remembered every time I'd go into an actual fight my adrenalin used to drain me within about 30 seconds because I'm so and then I remembered back to Bruce Lee said in into the dragon I don't know if it really transpires the boxing but he says that emotional content not is that is that kind of what you have to do? Put yourself there. Yeah, definitely.

Glen:

When I first died boxing my friends used to say to me, I always know when I've heard you. I was like how he went because you come flailing out of the corner. And then all he does is hit and hit me and move out of the way because I'm just I've gone into that little 10 second break myth. Where it's just you're not thinking about what you're doing is you have to be your partner. It's like what I love about this fall to be fair, is you come in, you'll punch 10 live in there with the crap out of each other and then you have a little cuddle and shake it down to the end. I just love that. As soon as the belly this good switch is gone. You've left it all switches gone. You know that?

Trev:

On a quick side? No. I'm actually got boxing in my family. My dad was a fan. He wasn't he wasn't a boxer but my wife's I think he's a great uncle or some kind of relation was the first guy to actually win the Lonsdale bill. Wow. A guy called Bombardier Billy wells. He was also you know, rank film distribution. You know the gong of the star. Yeah, that's wack. Yeah, that's me. Yeah. Yeah, he Yeah. He actually kind of defended the total of 14 times. And yeah, he was the first one to win the Lonsdale bill. So that's me. That's my box in

Wayne:

case that he didn't say well, he's Londo Lonsdale belt to sports director at

Trev:

free two point t.

Wayne:

Glenn quick, where can people find out more about gladbach Club and links to to the what can they find out online? So if they want to find out more, or come and train with us later?

Glen:

Yeah, sure. I'm on Instagram, as glove underscore, underscore club. And I posted a few bits and bobs on there. And I'm doing a little few little tutorials. But if anyone wants to drop me a message, I mean, and talk about boxing. I love it so much. I'm quietly talking to anyone that will listen to me. So any questions or anything they want to know all quietly? get in contact with anyone to talk about.

Trev:

You've also just started your own podcast Avenue.

Glen:

Yeah, first, first episode went out on the public kid in dillian. White to fight. So yeah, it's great fun.

Wayne:

Second, find that on YouTube. Then what's it? What's it called?

Glen:

Yeah, that one's chat. Box TV. chatterbox TV.

Wayne:

We'll put links to all this up on our site as well. Yeah, exactly.

Trev:

In the future clean, perhaps night. You know, we could come on and do a podcast for all of us, you know, so yeah.

Glen:

I'd love to have you guys

Wayne:

on. And if you're fine comes off, Glenn. We'd like to go to it. I think I'd love to. Yeah, if you don't mind.

Trev:

We'd be on your in your corner might definitely, definitely in your corner.

Wayne:

really brilliant. I really appreciate joining us today.

Unknown:

Thanks for your time, plenty has been really, really good, informative.

Wayne:

Thank you

Unknown:

for having me on.

Wayne:

So we cannot fake chairs, Glen. And Glen contacted us after the interview. And he just wanted us to mention to everyone that he might have come across a bit how he didn't want to in that podcast by saying that he started off doing Bare Knuckle fighting in his background, and he obviously wants to make it clear is that part of him was just part of his journey. And obviously, you know, we've we've his job now training people to taking kids off the street, basically, and training them to be boxing in the discipline. He didn't want to come across like he's nasty or anything like that was just part of his journey. So I just thought we would say that and clarify that. I'm sure you all knew that anyway, to be honest. What do you think drew? Well,

Trev:

the thing is, there's a lot of responsibility. There were kids, isn't there? Yes. And I think that's the thing if you're going to send your child to like a box in training camp or using best to know the background, so that that is called the bit I loved about that that I really took from there is the idea that they're training anybody, mainly young guys, to channel their anger and use it in a good way. And channel it for a response rather than kicking seven bells out someone in the street? Yes. I think the thing is, the more responsibility you have the, the more you know how you can hurt someone with your hands, cleans teaching them that not to use it the responsibilities, you have got weapons there so that that's great. I think Glenn come across like he really had a way of teaching guys not to pique their anger in and save it. Yeah. For the sport and to channel that anger into concentration to to win a sport, which I thought was great. I think that's a great message to get across to people. Yeah, we Yeah,

Wayne:

exactly. He confirmed basically what we've heard before with some of the professional boxers over the years, a lot of them came from from hardcore backgrounds, didn't they? Yeah, exactly. No hard times, they may be involved with crime, and boxing, save some from that channels, their energies, I mean, with the work involved. And you could hear that, from from what Glenn was saying, you don't have time to do that. You wouldn't have energy,

Trev:

saying what whatever. Like, I know, my my references are no normally movies and stuff, but and other stuff. Because as I said in the interview, my dad was already in a boxing. But they're up at like three in the morning and running and stuff. So the disciplines, not just in the fighting, it's conditioning and getting your head right to deal with the actual training of it, because it is such hard work. Yeah, you know, you look at any of clean social media and stuff. He's absolutely, and I think he's brought that discipline of the fight skills into his business as well. Yes. So easy, it's full on, you know, it's, it shows you if you go for it, you can achieve things and you can become exactly something, you know,

Wayne:

if I was going to be trained for boxing, and obviously Glenn said, then, you know, maybe you'll see us on the pad sometime. If I could drag myself on my sofa, then maybe I'll take him up and

Trev:

catch me running around the room while you're here. Say,

Wayne:

I'm not going to catch you that was the problem. I like the way you set on the fence with that and sort of come up with a scenario where both of us could win. Yeah, it doesn't. So where the issues between you and myself, but oh, no, it's all sorted out there. But if I was going to be trained for boxing, I'd want to be trained by somebody who's enthusiastic as Glenn. And I wouldn't I wouldn't think twice about going to glove up club and sign in at all, just to get you wherever you want. Yeah,

Trev:

I think as well he, it shows you that it's not a five minute wonder, yes, you know, the whole time to beat you invest a lot into it, to get a lot out of it. So I think that is in life as well. I think that's a great because you could take what you learn from that training into life, as well. Yeah, as you said in an interview a bit like Bruce Lee, I know it was, like, a bit of a corny movie reference, but it is true. Yeah, he's near. Yeah.

Wayne:

And he said, Yeah, you don't you know, you're just flailing around, because you'll burn out quickly. You know,

Trev:

you've got to be disciplined, leaving your guard down. You're just not you're not thinking straight.

Wayne:

So that's what I say. And I think that's what Bruce Lee meant. He said, Don't Don't just go for me. Just think about what you're doing and think about it,

Trev:

in a way is what you should do more with me. You should think more about the podcast rather than just giving me a hard time because your red red mist comes down. Yeah, what do you see what happens? See, the red mist comes down. You stop listening now. But you do you read me has come down and then you start forgetting things? Because all you can see is me. Anger for me. So if you control that channel bit, you could possibly put that energy into the podcast. Before the intro to this podcast.

Wayne:

I asked you what is your prediction for this podcast? And you said pain, like so you're the one who's dishing out the red mist? Nothing to do with me. I'm not having this argument on air. So But yeah, I can't wait to finish this season and therefore hopefully next year we'll script Trevor's as a lovely kind of coordinator and correspond a

Unknown:

different kind of guy a different kind of

Trev:

Yeah, yeah, go at that. I've watched a couple of them is dead. And even for a person who's not overly into boxing, likes a little bit of it. I found it really good. I follow the Yeah, it's easy. If you like boxing, you could just sit and listen to him. Yeah, not only like,

Wayne:

it's like we try and do with this podcast a little bit driven here, we're, you know, we don't expect everyone to to like older subjects, we're actually included, but we're trying to make other things accessible. So, you know, you might not necessarily be into boxing. But it's interesting, hopefully, for people to hear people talking passionately about boxing. Yeah, it's giving us a clue of what to expect.
