Re: Leigh Wood vs. TBA - | DAZN - 28 January 2023

This weekends shows didn’t look particularly well attended. In the current climate they have to go Friday and Saturday surely? I realise travel might be trickier on a Friday but there’s less sport competing for news space… It’s just too expensive. A lower tier seat for Eubank v Smith is £250+. I ca...

Re: Nathan Gorman - Is that it?

Frazer Clarke said Gormans dad told the corner to throw the towel. He said he and the corner were both shocked.

He won’t even get half.

Re: Chris Eubank vs Liam Smith

We got and undefeated BJS v Eubank jr on an undercard of Fury v Chisora for £12 normal subscription not that long ago. It will cost nearly £50 for two lesser quality fights 8 years later.

Re: Is Anthony Joshua Being Written Off Too Soon?

I don’t think I’ve overly changed my view about Joshua over the last few years, but then again I never thought he was the relentless force that Sky and his team hyped him to be either. He’s been a good quality world level boxer who would have been top ten in many eras, but I don’t think he’s ever b...

Re: Tyson Fury vs. Derek Chisora III | BT PPV - 3 December 2022

There are no physical tickets. They are QR codes so much more of a mess about to sell like that. Also, London is a big city and the show will be kicking off in the afternoon. The main event is 9pm. What should they do? Walk around Covent Garden at dinner time? Most people in London are there for a r...

No. What will they do? Take a loss....

Re: Terry Flanagan

Cheers. Presumed he's retired then. Hope he made enough in his world title reign to live comfortable. Always liked to see fighters with no top AM experience, no big promoter come through the small hall scene and win a world title. Can't think of any other than Terry, Warrington and Fielding (if you...

Re: Nathan Gorman - Is that it?

He was overhyped and now people wonder why he's flopped badly twice. Gorman is useful at English title level but struggles at British level. I seriously doubt he will have the gumption to carry on, but could possibly get another crack at the British title or the Commonwealth title if he can string ...

Re: Round-by-Round: Zach Parker vs, John Ryder | BT Sport - 26 November 2022

Promoters are obsessed with fights in big arenas now, seems to have escaped them how shitty it looks on TV when they are 3/4 empty. I'm not saying to go back to the Bushfield Leisure Centre days (Thompson vs Dustan style) but surely there's a middle ground? Plenty of arena’s that hold between 6k to...

I think Parker was getting knackered and realised he couldn't hurt John or keep him off. That's exactly what happened. He's a poser who has no heart once someone can take his best shots.
