Karl Ouch looks back at By Rook of Left Hook, what it means to the sport. Karl talks about how he came into the sport in late 2013 and how Tim Woolgar was running events by the seat of his pants. Does the film represent a true reflection of the history of the sport? Karl talks about his relationship with Iepe Rubingh and how both sides of the saga are reflecting in the different visions of the two protagonists. “Life is not a comic book,” both Karl and Gavin agree that watching the film was much easier whilst not being in it.
Karl will be the centre of a new film, “The Last K.O.”, K.O. being a pun on Kock Out and Karl Ouch. The documentary will see Karl back in the ring defending his title belt. The pod looks back on Karl’s K.O. agains Ion Citu in London as well as when Karl himself got knock out – what are the dangers of concussion. Gavin compares notes about his technical K.O. and how perspective plays a role.
You’ll never guess what potentially shop soiled confectionary is Karl’s favourite chocolate!?
