    I can't actually believe that. Manny connected with more and better punches in at least 10 and possibly 11 rounds.

    Probably the greatest amateur boxer of all time Terafilo Stevenson has died. Three golds at heavyweight in 72,76 and 80. Could have gone for more only Cuba boycotted 84 & 88 olympics.
    Turned down millions to fight Ali in the 70's.
    That would have been some fight.

    He's the new PBF. Sadly.

    Awesome fighter, Rees is an excellent boxer in his own right.

    Absolutely, just a shame about the slightly controversial ending of the bout.

    Lockett was 100% right for me

    Agreed - I meant Rees seeming to stop thinking the ref had called 'Break', and then getting a terrible body blow which probably only brought the inevitable forward.

    Ah right. Was only a matter of time. Rees is a deserved top 10 lightweight. Broner to be fair would ko Burns, and probably the majority at 140.

    Price banged out in the second tonight by Tony Thompson.
    He's not on his own in not seeing that coming.

    Why? Price IMHO would kill him.

    I've always maintained Price was waiting to be found out. It wasn't just his jaw, Thompson didnt get near his jaw, it was his neck. and the fact that a 41 year old inactive for 5 years stood up to his usual 'power' display and scrambled his thoughts with the first real punch of substance hes felt in the pros. To the neck. Plumber for hire

    Found this quote.

    I won't slag a boxer off. Takes courage to get in a ring

    Oh dear.

    Haye V Fury has been announced.

    For those of us awaiting boxing's resurrection, the wait continues...

    I expect he'll end up with one if the fight goes ahead. Haye might be a total dick, but he can box. Fury just lumbers about swinging his arms around.

    I think Haye will knock him out inside 5 rounds.

    One of the lads I went to school with is fighting on Sky this weekend v Derry Matthews.

    Might be worth a laugh...

    You went to school with Coyle? Hahahaha. But I“d rather see Fury in another fight. They signed up to fight on 28 September. We“ll wait and see...

    Coyle looked really rather good but Matthews caught him with a great shot and that was that. Would almost certainly have won on points.
