    @Deckard1

    He certainly wasnt as loved as he was after the Bute fight. At least not from me, and my opinion counts for the whole of Britain

    I'm too much of a Calzaghe fangirl to ever like him. I also think is style is ugly and awkward, and that he looks like a pigeon.

    I hate Froch more now actually. Although his taking apart of Bute was impressive, Bute hadn't beaten anyone of note and didn't deserve the hype he was getting.

    Froch then went on to talk about himself as a world beater and shit-talking Calzaghe. He's a douchebag.

    I fully respect calzaghe for what he did in boxing. I could never like him though, his fighting style just didnt excite me, always looked like he was slapping. That is just my opinion however, full kudos for his actual career

    Calzaghe was a tactical genius imo and could completely change his style depending on his opponent. Plus he doesn't look like a pigeon.

    Hard to defend boxing when this is deemed bigger news than the Kessler Froch rematch

    Collins vs Jones..yes you read right STEVE COLLINS VS ROY JONES JUNIOR

    This

    The taking apart of Lacy was a sight to behold and the best pure boxing skills I have ever seen.

    I was trying to explain the good old days of boxing to my nephew... I came across as a bit of a grumbling old man. :D

    I hope they're not serious; would be a really sad event if it did happen. Collins did the right thing by retiring in 97, having had a great boxing career.

    And Roy Jones jr should have retired 10 years ago when he was still in his prime but had won everything he wanted to win. It's just crazy the way he's damaged his legacy by getting knocked out by nobodies in recent years.

    This is about to start on Sky Sports. Should be a good watch.

    http://sport-onthebox.com/2013/01/18/boxing-britains-best-the-gloves-are-off-special-programme-on-sky-sports/

    David Haye, Amir Khan, Carl Froch, Anthony Ogogo and host Johnny Nelson are the five fighters who will open up their hearts in Britainís Best: The Gloves Are Off on Tuesday, January 22.

    The hour-long show will give boxing aficionados and sports fans a fascinating insight into the lives of world champions, past, present and hopefully the future.

    They wonít be discussing their latest performance or promoting their next big fight.

    Instead, all four fighters will discuss their early years, their families, the fame that comes with success in the sport, their lives away from boxing and the issues they have had to take on.

    They will talk about their careers, ambitions and personal lives, reveal what drives them and what the future holds beyond the boxing ring.

    I was just about to post the same thing. They've certainly built it up, better be good.

    Enjoyed that, think they overdid the "belt winning boxers are normal people too" thing a bit much though.

    Saw the Rees Broner result, as expected. Rees says he was stunned by Broner's power.

    Got googling and ended up looking at some Valero stuff. Saw the usual posts about how he fought nobodies then there was a brief clip of a guy called Mikey Garcia talking about sparring him, saying he'd sparred Pacquiao but he thought Valero hit the hardest out of anyone he ever faced.

    Thought nice compliment but who the hell are you, turns out Garcia is now the Ring magazine featherwight champion and looking like being a future pound for pound great like Broner - all you proper boxing fans will know all of this but I just catch up with the big fights. Garcia could also follow Broner up the weight divisions into lightweight, offering all sorts of Khan / Mayweather / Garcia / Broner combos.

    Anyway, watch Garcia on youtube. He's not flashy, just technically ruthless. Next time he fights I'm betting on him, don't care who he fights. Can't see him ever getting sparked, and he just grinds people down.

    Big shock: 41 year old Thompson knocked out David Price in the 2nd Round.

    @senso-ji Wow Really

    Shock, too early to put him in i guess..

    He's young enough to come back I guess but the hype has certainly gone now.

    Prices main problem is that he's really shit.

    I'm watching PrizeFighter

    Harrison has eased into the final, Won the first round against a fighter I cant remember then beat Rogan by outboxing him.

    Rossy an American fighter, slick heavyweight but abit of a spoiler.

    Harrison probably favourite for final.

    I deliberately avoided Prize fighter when it was announced that Rogan and Harrison were the biggest names on the card.

    As for Price; I remember thinking he exposed his chin when he fought Sexton. Sexton wasn't good enough to capitalise on that weakness. Thompson got his tactics spot on tonight. He called out Tyson Fury at the end as well.

    PrizeFighter never has big names,

    Its bottom of the barrel stuff, just one rung above a pub fight.

    I think Tyson will struggle against Cunningham anyway,

    Tyson more likely to fight Price if he loses as well...

    Harrison wins 2nd Prizefighter by KO in 2nd Round of the final.

    He only has 1 punch, the left straight counter, but generally looks good, under 17st,

    Most horrific thought is that, following Price loss, that a rematch between the two seems the best option for both,

    Price wtf? Keep watching it on YouTube and apparently he perforated an ear drum which could explain why he was so wobbly. But the punch was innocuous and on the back of his head. No idea why it floored him.

    Didn't see prizefighter but don't forget Harrison can actually box. No heart, massive fanny, but put him in with a load of average blokes and he'll always do OK.

    No idea why it floored him? Presuming he's not lying about the perforated ear drum then it's fairly obvious...

    @puddleduck

    I was talking more in terms of the punch. He delivers it off balance, doesn't put his body into it and it catches Price high on the back of his head - not directly on the ear. You see boxers, especially heavyweights, take much bigger and harder shots. Just seemed an odd punch to cause such an injury, and if a punch like that can cause it you'd expect it to happen every week.

    You can see in a boxer's face and body language when they've delivered a big shot. Thomson just looks confused when Price goes down.
