Manchester boxing coach Bobby Rimmer talks for the first time about his boxer Brian Rose’s world title challenge against Demetrius Andrade three months ago (June 14th) and reflects on the experience of going over to New York and his disappointment after Rose was stopped in the 7th round.
Bobby tells a story like no one else can and his tale of the fight and the time spent in the hospital in Brooklyn straight after the fight, though heartbreaking for him, is classic Bobby!
The sleepless nights after getting back to the UK and the painful doubts are now replaced with strong optimism for the future after having time and hindsight to reflect on what they experienced.
Rose now plans to redeem himself after losing to the American, he was upset with his performance and is determined to come back better for the experience and has promised to win a world title…. Bobby is right behind him and the journey continues!
Bobby comments on Brian’s future and gives his thoughts on a possible match-up against Liverpool’s Liam Smith, who has taken over the current domestic light-middleweight scene after Brian Rose moved up to fight for a world title.
Bobby also pays tribute to new unbeaten British lightweight champion Terry Flanagan and his coach Steve Maylett on their Lonsdale belt success. Bobby is close friend’s of the Maylett family and does all the corners with Steve for Terry and was there on the crowning night in Manchester last month.
Enjoy this Friday afternoon chat with Bobby.
