I used to play him and his dad many a time. Sean is a very decent fellow and made his father tremendously proud of him. His father was a boxer to and his uncle received a knighthood for it was his gym in Sheffield where the likes of Naseem Hamed trained.

Indeed, Sean talks about the boxing history of his family in our chat.

We're doing a Candidates Special next week and a Tony Miles Special probably in April.

Episode 8 is here, even in these circumstances. Despite the economy, despite life.
