From Sunday Morning, 11:06 am on 16 August 2020

Legendary New Zealand boxing identity Mike Edwards is one of the sport's most beloved figures in this country. Monty Betham Jnr says he's the man you want in your corner. In his new book, Taking the Punches, Edwards reflects on a colourful lifetime in boxing. He joins Jim to discuss his love of the sweet science and why Joseph Parker would have defeated David Tua if they'd been fighting in the same era.
