    It's 569,990.06 GBP or 69k more than the prize money awarded to runner up at Wimbledon this year (winner 1m) ...not bad in some context.

    Looks like Khan's next fight will be against Zab Judah, probably in Britain.

    The fight was good, but I can't say I was overly impressed with Khan. Maidana laughed at his best punches and probably would have kicked his arse if he started letting his hands go from the first round.

    Khan did withstand a few good shots, but I don't know what he's going to do against someone with power, speed and stamina. He must've out-landed Maidana 3 to 1 and Maidana walked away with a tiny cut.

    Wasn't laughing at the body shot in the first round though was he.

    True - that one caught him good.

    I don't know much about either boxer - was just giving my 2 cents.

    I've no doubt Khan can compete at that weight, though... my biggest concern after that fight was his punching power. How the hell he managed to stay up in the 10th (or 11th?) after Maidana made his knees buckle was beyond me. Quite an effort there.

    It surprised me that Khan only managed one KD against Maidana. Ortiz had him down three times and he's not a huge puncher.

    I was yelling at the TV in the 10th. I didn't really care who won - I just wanted to see someone get the snot knocked out of them.

    What did you guys make of DeGale? I thought he looked great, it was a difficult fight for him so early in his pro career but he totally outclassed Smith.

    Great fight, shame Hopkins was robbed. Pascal looked like a beaten man at the end, but to give it as a majority draw is a joke. The refereeing was a joke as well, the first KD was a cleat punch to the back of the head.

    Hopkins is beast. He absolutely schooled him.

    Not sure if it's filtered through anywhere else, but it sounds like Gary Mason has been killed in a road accident. :(

    Botha v Tyson Fury is off, the BBBC refused to sanction the fight. Must be annoying for Fury now as most heavyweights are actively avoiding him. I think he's got some good talent but needs some better opponents to keep him learning his craft.

    Good fight coming up on sky late on Saturday night: Devon Alexander Vs Timothy Bradley.

    Both are possible future opponents for Khan.

    Klitschko cancels Chisora fight again.

    Will we finally see a fight with Haye happen now?

    Chisora may be forced to fight Fury
    Gotta feel for Chisora a bit. Was lined up with world title shot, now will probably lose his titles to Fury. Can't see him doing anything but tbh, Fury isn't great yet but he's developing well and his sheer size and power will be too much I think.

    heavyweight boxing is quite pathetic at the moment, since lewis retired the division has been devoid of quality fighters. It is why I generally ignore anything above light heavyweight these days.

    Reminder that Khan is fighting tonight, and also a reminder that he can fuck off, for 15. Don't mind paying for big events, but do me a favour Amir...

    That's why Sky dropped it from PPV, had fewer than 50 preorders apparently.
  • Deleted user 16 April 2011 20:36:12
    Greedy moron. Who the fuck is watching him on c480 PrimeTime TV for 15?*


    *no-one, that's who.
