Top Pro Gif Ad
After a one week break, Low Blows returns today with a sexy vengeance.

Dublin heavyweight Sean ‘Big Sexy’ Turner [7(5)-0] is the man in the hotseat this week and he doesn’t disappoint. The big-punching prospect fights in Marbella on Saturday, but took a quick break in his preparations to score a few verbal knockouts.

Q: Hardest Trainer?
A: The hardest trainer I’ve met would be Sean Creagh. He is a total animal. never cuts a corner and has helped me to get the finger out big time.

Q: Biggest Moaner?
A: Martin Rogan is the biggest moaner. I spent a week in camp in the Fury’s and he never shut up moaning. If it wasn’t his arm it was his neck, if it wasn’t his back it was the dirt of the place. Never stopped moaning.

Q: Funniest?
A: John Hutchinson is the funniest by far, but the thing is, he doesn’t mean to be funny. He is gas, some of the stuff he come out with. He told me when we lived together in Marbella that I sh*te like a Dinosaur.

Q: Biggest Ladies’ Man?
A: Nav Mansouri. He had three birds waiting on him one night walking through the port of Marbella.

Q: Most Intelligent?
A: All us boxers are brain-dead, but I’m sure that would have to go to Darren O’Neill. He is a school teacher and that’s not easy.

Q: Least Intelligent?
A: That would have to be myself, but I can count money, and that’s all that matters.

Q: Hardest Puncher?
A: David Maguire can punch hard – and he says I punch like getting a kick off a budgie. We are good pals and we have sparred a few times, but we don’t go all out because we are best mates.

Q: Most Naturally Talented?
A: Deco Geraghty can box, I enjoy watching him fight. Jason Quigely is the most talented up and comer. I think he will 100% become World champion.

Q: Cheapest?
A: Haven’t came across too many cheap asses yet. But Deco Geraghty has often gave out to me over drinking or eating his food

Q: Worst Dancer?
A: David Maguire. Hasn’t a clue but thinks he’s the bee’s knees

Q: Worst Fashion Sense?
A: Peter McDonagh by a mile.

Q: Biggest Messer?
A: Roy Sheahan is by far the worst messer I ever came across. He jocked me in the middle of McDonalds one day. Another time he took a huge scoop of raw onions and put them onto Hughie Myers’s plate at the buffet and just bursts out laughing. Was one of the funniest things I’ve ever seen, had to be there kind of thing.
