Re: Gavin Gwynne vs. Craig Woodruff | CH5 - 17 September 2022

It was a good fight, and the draw was a fair result.
I can understand Woodruff feeling miffed about it though as it was there for the taking.
He made Gwynne look one dimensional at times but just let himself get outworked in some rounds.

Re: All womans boxing card October 15th good or bad idea? (R.I.P Queen)

So cricket is carrying on, horse racing resumes on Sunday but the Board says there can't be any boxing on Saturday night.
Makes no sense.

Re: All womans boxing card September 10th good or bad idea?

I hope it goes ahead but if it had to be postponed why couldn't it be 2 or 3 weeks (as long as the venue is available)
When Trinidad v Hopkins was postponed after 9/11 it was held two weeks later.

Let's wait and see what happens. Hope the BBBofC follow the precedent from when King George VI died on 6 February 1952 - shows took place in the UK on Thursday 7 Feb (i.e. the day after the King's death), Friday 8 Feb and Saturday 9 Feb, with steps being taken at shows to mark his passing.

Haye used Helenius as canon fodder I mean sparring.
I think it's a fair opponent to come back after two brutal KO losses but having it as a PPV is a joke.

The Sky hype machine is the promoter's dream when they give it the full push. I wouldn't be surprised if it does well.

Re: Oleksandr Usyk vs. Anthony Joshua II - May/June2022

Any interim opponent will certainly not be someone with ambition like Joyce or Dubois.
They will be looking for someone who hasn't got much power or any future. Joshua needs building back up.

An absolute robbery. I'm so disgusted by it that I'm too angry to work it out but how could IJL score it 114 - 111. He could only have given Jack 4 rounds minus the point deduction. Then there was the 10-8 round, so apart from that he has given Catteral 3 rounds. I just can't see how this is possib...

Williams weighing in at 1lb under concerns me. why? he's done it several times and it happens all the time that a guy comes in 1 pound under. seems like hardly anything What I mean is that it suggests he's small at the weight and Eubank is a big middle. So I wonder whether that will make a big diff...

Re: BBBoC Overturning a decision? (Is it possible)

The referee has the discretion to deduct a point or points for hitting an opponent when he's down. He can also disqualify the offender. That gives the referee quite a bit of leeway and I bet the board will close ranks & decide Steve Gray acted fairly. Personally I thought it was serious enough t...

Re: Why are fights stopped on cuts?

Fights are stopped when cuts occur if the doctor decides the fighter is unable to continue.
This would normally be due to D but I guess fear of long term injury may play a part too.

Re: Jarvis Astaire Obituary

It sounds like he had an amazing life and lived to a good age.
For a guy who seems to have been showbiz to his fingertips (even his name!) he seemed virtually invisible.
In all my time following the sport he was just a name in the background.
Is it fair to say he was the British Al Haymon?
