The fifth episode of The Prizefighter Podcast comes hot on the heels of a fantastic night of action at the Super Featherweights at York Hall on November 20. Gary Buckland became the 15th boxer to lift the trophy after a brilliant performance, knocking out the unbeaten British champion Gary Sykes in the semi-final before defeating Derry Mathews in the final - the Liverpool fighter gaining sweet revenge over Choi in a stunning second semi. The podcast starts with the closing moments of Buckland's victory before we hear from the winner alongside promoter Barry Hearn. Sky Sports commentary team Adam Smith, Glenn McCrory and Spencer Oliver deliver their verdict before we talk to Smith about the recent David Haye/Audley Harrison fight and his hopes for 2011 in his new role as head of Boxing. And finally, Matchroom Sport's Eddie Hearn talks about Prizefighter and the aftermath from that night in Manchester.
