Re: Prospect vs Journeymen

Also and iv brought this up many times the lads in the away corner will give a harder fight if they beleive they will get rewarded for it, A lot of journeymen and away fighters in general dont give it there all because they beleive it makes no difference on the score cards, But the plus side of tha...

Re: Josh Warrington vs. Luis Alberto Lopez | DAZN - 10 December 2022

It is criminal the promotion of Hopey Price. Boxing in the afternoon against a man from Gran Canaria.... Dennis McCann is known by casuals now and a lesser talent at the same sort of weight,

I don’t think a million is that much now. Ten million is probably a new ‘millionaire’.

Re: Boxing Life Stories - I'm calling it now

I'm halfway through and 2 observations: 1. Given what you've rightly outlined above Mickey you'd have expected him to have a degree of arrogance, but he actually comes across as a contender for World's Nicest Guy. 2. Sadly have to wonder whether in a brutal sport like boxing, it's that same nicenes...

Re: Daniel Dubois vs. Kevin Lerena | BT PPV - 3 December 2022

Watched the fight again today. Cannot believe Lerena in that 2nd round. The shot definitely looked to have taken Dubs’ legs away instead of an injury. Dubois looked more confused that his legs were betraying him rather than an actual injury. Shane is saying his knee has swollen. He said he did it h...

Re: Josh Taylor vs. Jack Catterall II | Sky PPV - 4 March 2023

How many PPVs so far this year? Probably be double next year lol. Too many considering the outside factors of people being skint and the quality of some of these matches, this and the Eubank scrap should be on Sky Sports on a Saturday night. Taylor v Catterall even with the controversy of last time...

He is promoting a talk he’s doing in Saudi in February so god knows what’s going on with a March fight. Obviously commercial stuff comes first for AJ. You're wasting your time. There's a few who are all over this Fury-Usyk thread who choose to believe that Joshua was preparing to fight last weekend...

So what’s the narrative now? Joyce is no good, either? He was, for some reason, another killer Tyson was petrified of five minutes ago. No, that's not the narrative at all. Oh, just thought people must have caught one of the Joyce v Frazer fights and had a reality check. *I know it was amateurs but...

Re: Prospect vs Journeymen

I've always thought the journeyman concept was a complete fabrication and just an excuse for poor matchmaking and padded records. Good quality amateurs; some with international experience, fighting someone like Lee Connelly or Chris Adaway. It serves no purpose whatsoever. All it provides is a plat...
