In a recent interview with Artisan News, Ex-Pantera frontman, Phil Anselmo talked boxing, and why he wouldn’t want to scrap with Michael Poulsen of Volbeat. [VIDEO]
Phil Anselmo has been a longtime boxing fanatic, and when asked what rocker he would least like to see across the ring from him, he replied:
“I know one dude I wouldn’t wanna fuck with, and that’s the singer from Volbeat. That dude spars with Mikkel Kessler.”
If that name sounds familiar, its because Mikkel was the inspiration behind the Volbeat hit song “A Warriors Call“.
Over this summers “Operation Kick Ass” festival in San Diego, I caught up with Michael to talk about the new record and his recent weight loss. He discussed how sparring and training with Mikkel had got him in shape, and is keeping him there. Watch the video below to see the interview.
