Story of Paddy Pimblett’s Walkout Song
In an interview with BT Sport, Paddy Pimblett revealed how this unique walkout song came to fruition:
“Years ago I used to come out to rap. My first nine amateur fights and my first four pro fights, I came out to rap. Then I lost.
“At the time, I was going out partying all the time and they [his walkout songs] were the type of songs I always used to listen to: House music.
“It was just a song I really liked: Lethal Industry. But it never dropped into a good song, it goes a bit stale.
“So I asked Ant Chandler, a former Garlands DJ who used to come to my gym, to mix these two songs together for me. It’s basically my own remix! He put the two songs together for me.
“When I walked out to that… it goes off! It’s special, lad. It really is.”
