On this edition of The Versus Podcast, we're honored to have the legendary personality that is Eric Kelly on TVP. Kelly, the former Olympic boxer from Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn became a viral sensation when a video of him berating "Wall Street Nerds" in his boxing class circulated. Now, Kelly's vibrant (and at times flagrant) personality joins Bonta and Ed for 45 minutes of sheer comedy, personal reflections and things one searches for in the Twin Cities.
The fellas also talk a bit about Mayweather vs. Pacquiao, the reason why Cincinnati breeds the worst people, and how the frat guys at OU aren't the only terrible humans in the world. Also, we talk about the craziness that's been the NFL offseason as Bonta's lost his mind thinking Jimmy Graham won't do work in Seattle.
- 0:00 – The Intro – We talk NFL offseason craziness, plus Ed got punched in the mouth by Aldon Smith
- 20:00 – The Interview, Olympic gold medalist Eric Kelly
- 55:00 – The Outro – A candid conversation about OU football, Sigma Alpha Epsilon and being better humans
