The boxing

Recommended Posts

If you mean he's a massive tool, then I know.

I met him on several occasions in Brighton in the 90's. Bound to be a prick when you drive a juggernaught up and down the seafront for no good reason

 

Ha!

 

He was also riling Steve Collins, which isnt a good idea.

There was no love lost there, but a mutual respect as boxers

Shame Benn wasn't on it, as it would have been interesting to hear his take on Jones Jr dodging him

He was in Australia, it is where he lives now.

 

shame that, that would have been sweet.

 

sounds like Collins and Jones jr is actually going to happen.

Did Roy Jones Jr admit to that? There is a lot of good stuff on Roy Jones Jr in Donald Mcrae's book Dark Trade. Its one of the best sport books I've read let alone boxing books.

it shouldn't be, neither should get a licence.

as Jones's last fight was less than 12 months ago, Jones should still have a licence.

 

Is that book good? might have a look at that

I know I just think boxing is such a tough sport that it kinda depresses me when I see people who have been successful need to fight long after they should have been anywhere near a ring.

There is a case to be made for taking licences away, Jones has been a shambles for years and is fighting for next to nothing.

 

Mcraes book is brilliant. Well worth the read.

I agree, I dont want to see it.

 

I want to see the younger fighters fight.

 

Said it before, Frampton V Quigg, Macklin V Lee or Murray or Barker.

 

Billy Jo Saunders V Ryder will be a quality fight

 

He was marvellous in an era that had some marvellous boxers.

Absolutely.

 

I think that might be why I am being all arlarse about Froch you know.

Didnt know that

Never in public, but he definitely took easier fights and blamed Benn for messing about during negotiations

That Mattysse looks awesome.

 

Commentators talking about Khan being in the mix along with Garcia, on the evidence of tonight's fight Khan's chin would struggle against Mattysse's power.

 

Garcia v Mattysse will be a good fight tho.

Khan would get sparked out by Mattysse looking at that. Hell of a shot to put Petersen down.

How much would he expect to earn from the type of fight he'd actually get?

Now that Chidora isn't fighting Deontay Wilder he might get a shot at him. Be a 6 figure sum probably.

 

He really ought to pack it in tho, he is garbage at any serious level.

He is a heavyweight boxer, scared of being hit.

 

I taped the champions league finals they have been showing on SKY, watched the Istanbul one, then a pop up appears "Froch V Kessler"

 

they are doing this on purpose I am sure of it

It's scandalous just how bad he is and that people are still paying him, is the absence of talent that stark
