VS: Episode 275: Michael Bentt

We have a fantastic episode for you today.  We are joined by former WBO  boxing champion Michael Bentt.  Michael, star of Netflix’s documentary series, Losers, was open, extremely honest, and absolutely fascinating. Michael describes his dislike of boxing, being pushed by his overbearing father, and what it was like to succeed at something, without loving it.  Michael also talks about his victory of Tommy Morrison, being Evander Holyfield’s sparring partner, and moving on to the world of acting.  Michael would later play Sonny Liston in Ali, work with Clint Eastwood, and much much more.  Have a listen!

 

We also play some Verbal Shenanigans trivia, talk about some strange gigs Scott had, and learn how Mike lost his keys.  Check it out.
