Re: Adam Smith leaving Sky boxing, bitches!

I have to agree with what someone said to me … theres no smoke without fire. But I will contradict that by saying “If I was a betting man😉 I would bet on Smith being back in Jan. Smith has been with Sky for over 27 years and is quite influential in Sky, I cannot see them sacking him. If he is sacke...

Re: Adam Smith leaving Sky boxing, bitches!

Ed is another “nice guy”..But he’s not a good presenter at all, as stiff as a wooden post. Maybe they can give him some presentation lessons, I think Gary Lineker was a bit like that at first. And all those sky yes men that Smith pulled together over the years company Nelson, Froch..hopefully they ...

Re: Hasim Rahman Jr vs. Vitor Belfort | DAZN - 15 October 2022

Agree with the above posts, Belfort's performance against Holyfield was despicable. He was more than capable of going easy on the old man and winning a decision. Certainly deserves a taste of his old medicine, hopefully this will be it. I think Haye should have a match with him for a bit of revenge...

Re: Ricky Hatton vs. Marco Antonio Barrera | Exhibition - 12 November 2022

I don’t blame Hatton for not fighting Witter. Witter was so rude and disrespectful and he knew the only payday was Ricky. Remember Ingle and Witter after the Hatton-Thaxton fight? Especially as Jon had put up such a good fight and was a stablemate to Witter. I can see why Ricky didn’t want to bring ...

Will this be a Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jnr style exhibition where they both helped each other go 8 rounds, or will it be possible fight but called an exhibition? I hope its the former and not the latter. Hopefully the latter and Barrera stops Hatton You not a Hatton fan? I’m a Barrera fan
