Anyway, still on topic. I watched this fight back after many years of it first being shown on the BBC (2004).

Then IBO World Cruiserweight Champion Carl Thompson stopping a very impressive David Haye for the first time in his career. Haye was touted to win this fight;

Thompson 13 years later is 53 years old now.

Here is the all-hands adaptation:


Boxing fact: "Adrian" is Carl "The Cat" Thompson first line of address.

Carl changed his name because it wasn't deemed grisly enough.

Well impressed with the gutsy roughouse style of Stephen Tiffany against Troy James repeated on BN right now. Before the Sam Sexton win over Gary Cornish for the British title defence.

I think David Haye will neatly fold Tony Bellew in the rematch saga. Providing his body holds up of course. Bellew almost punched himself out last time.

Ready to watch the crap hit the fan.

I bought two books on boxing yesterday.

Steve Bunce - The Fixer (novel).
Ricky Hatton- Vegas Tales.

TFC Area Title - Sami  Salem vs. Romaine Porter

This is a pretty landmark record for me. Check it out on YouTube. Screened by http://www.maaction.com

Deontay Wilder Vs. Luis Ortiz

A hard one to call on paper, but in action I predicted Deontay in under 5 to KO Ortiz. Ortiz is too old, and too out of action. Either way, it's Deontay's best fight since Gerald Washington.

What The Experts Think Will Happen


Roy Jones Jnr 50th pro boxing contest

Picking up the WBU Cruiserweight title as a nice farewell in a competitive outpointing exercise on 8th February 18.

Anthony Yarde vs Tony Alvern

Much more competitive fight for The Beast Yarde, only stopping this chap complete because of corner retirement from body shots at the end of round seven.

Just picked up a 2009 Ufc dvd with five hours of footage from fights across the Ultimate Fighter franchise. Cannot wait to open it up.

Hiya guys n gals. Not touched down in this thread for a few months. Time for an update.


Good story here. Eubank Smith equals boring fight.
Tyson Fury meanwhile is talking way too much for my liking. Those who brag, do not know. Vice versa also.
I also find a glaring omission in that Deontay technically got knocked out on his feet by Ortiz yet people are counting on Deontay as being a Joshua beater. Fact is 4 years ago nobody heavyweight wanted to face Ortiz. But they look to the pumped up muscle men for advice.

Top-drawer Commonwealth Title Eliminator action watched tonight. A tremendous 12 round middleweight blitzkrieg between Kyrouge Daydan and Ben Savva.

Terence Crawford Vs Jeff Horn. Easy contender for fight of the year.

This weekend sees Tyson Fury make his 2nd appearance back on our screens in Carl Frampton undercard. Should be interesting, hopefully.
