    It must be a killer for Andy Lee to see this chancer get a crack at GGG after he tried for so long. If he'd stayed active for just a couple of months longer the fight could have been his.

    Great work from O'Sullivan's team alright.

        Did anyone see the GGG fight against Canelo, at the weekend?
        I thought GGG edged it.

        He definitely won the first fight... Boxing is still very dirty.

        He was as lame as a duck. Not the metaphorical lame duck either, but a real duck that was actually lame. Maybe from stepping on a land mine or something.

          I also see Billy Joe Saunders is in deep doodooo... the dumb bastard...


          Billy Joe Saunders has been charged with misconduct by the British Boxing Board of Control after the emergence of video footage in which he appears to offer a woman drugs.

            He won both fights, the second wasn't even particularly close. Golden Boy are a dirty shower.

                      It will always remain one of my biggest sporting disappointments that the BJS fight didn't go ahead in Thomond Park but the Jackson KO is one of my favourite from any boxer and the Korobov fight is my favourite Irish boxing memory bar none. I look forward to many more years of listening to his superb analysis on radio and TV.

                      In a sport often dominated by clowns trying to outdo each other's obnoxiousness he was one of the good guys. Boxing is poorer for losing him.
                      Andy was on Late Late tonight promoting his new book - he seems like a very genuine guy. All the best to him

                      Probably next year or the year after next they will take some stopping"

                        The washed up mental patient and the failed footballer contrived a way of not taking a beating off AJ as their next fight. Who knew two lads whose combined IQ is in single digits had the smarts to do that.
