    Hatton vs Senchenko, good fight for Hatton to get him back in the game, Senchenko was talked up as a good fighter before he got embarassed by Malignaggi, obvious what his level is though after that fight. I'm sure the term "former world champion" will be talked to death when people are talking about Senchenko over the next few weeks.

    Hmm... probably a good decision to turn pro, I'd have looked to have gone with Matchroom though, currently the only promotion with a guaranteed 2 year contract with Sky.

    Bad decision because he's made it for the wrong reason.

    I feel sorry for the abuse Audley has been getting since last night, he came to fight and was on the offensive until he got hit with shots that would knock anybody out. If it wasn't for Audley winning Team GB's first olympic boxing gold medal then British boxing wouldn't currently be as good as it currently is. Price is a future world champion no doubt, just interesting to see what happens when he takes one on the chin, see whether his chin is still suspect. Fury calling him out was hilarious, I can't stop laughing whenever I watch it.

    Great win for Pricey the man has scary power not to keen on the upcoming Skelton fight in December but I suppose It keeps Price active.

    IMO Fury is scared of Price that was fear in his eyes he wants nothing to do with him, Fury and Fat Controller want nothing to do with a Price fight they'd rather continue on their epic journey of fighting Commonwealth Cans in Shopping malls.

    Glen Johnson has come out of retirement to fight George Groves in December I'm not liking this at all I really wish Glen would have stuck top his word.

    Looking forward to this weekends Kell Brook card a shame McDonell vs Malinga fell through though, I'm sort of intrigued by the Anderson vs Reid, Robin is way past his best but Kenny is a very vulnerable fighter.

    The Brooklyn card looks pretty good too with the Garcia Morales re-match and Paulie M v Cano.

    I like the way Fury tried to pretend he was articulate. Everyone knows the chap is thick as fuck. He's an absolute knob on twitter apparently. I was giving a Judo class the other day and afterwards one of the lads was looking at twitter on his iPad and he saw a few of tweets from Tyson Fury where he was saying he was the best HW in the world!!

    What a surprise Sheldan gratis free as well I imagine you jammy bastard ! Laughing

    I don't mind Fury too much as I find the way he seeks for attention and ludicrous comments hilarious The way he talks about Price is comical you can see the fear In his eyes the bloke is shitting himself at the prospect of stepping In the ring with him.

    I forgot that on the Brooklyn card the fight between Randall Baily & Devon Alexander got moved to that card. cheers

    Shocked me when I heard. Was wandering around Liverpool before the match and saw it on SkySports in a shop window. Couldn't believe it, been in a bit of a daze since. One of the all time greats and a lovely man who did so much to help the people of Detroit that his boxing achievements are actually secondary to the charity work and thankless graft he put in.

    Boxing lost two of the five greatest trainers in the history of the sport this year in him and Angelo Dundee.

    Tragic news about Manny a damn shame It all seems mysterious, I was watching Ringside last night also looking on many Boxing forums It was very odd the news broke he died on the morning but nothing confirmed until the evening.

    It's been a rough year for Boxing Angelo Dundee, Joe Frazier, Teofilo Stevenson, Johnny Tapia, Corrie Sanders and many more. Sad

    I'm looking forward to this weekend, first off I love Marco Huck that man does so man things wrong but he makes them right some how and for some reason I have this feeling Grachev is going to shock Bute It's just a gut feeling. Soon as the fight was made I felt this, Grachev is pretty tough and i'm pretty sure he has never been stopped in kickboxing and I know his only loss in MMA was a decision to Ricardo Funch.

    John Joe Nevin has changed his mind and decided to stay amateur rather than turn professional.

    It's a bit of coup for WSB to get all those Olympians on board I'm not overly sold on the concept but It certainly has benefits and good half way house between the ammy's and pro's.

    The Enzo stoppage was plain awful under most circumstances but I can understand Ian John Lewis's concern for Enzo after past knock outs he has received. The card at the Staples Centre was mixed good KO win for Angulo you can see how much the win meant to him, The Leo Cruz fight was a horrible miss match like Cleverly 'defending' his 'Title' against some bum form the US. As much as I enjoyed the Moreno-Mares fight I can't believe the one score card that read 120-106 that was shocking.

    The notable thing about the Wlad fight on ESPN was Frank Maloney's crass and nasty remarks about Emmanuel Stewart.
