  1. Maybe I'm cynical...but...the ref jumping in when he did Saturday night came across more about not having the shine taken off Joshua's hype by Takam taking him the distance and spoiling his 100% KO record...than it did about protecting Takam who was going the full 12rds
  2. Two of my favourites from that era where Jerry Quarry and George Chuvalo...not the best of their time but two deep game and tough individuals...a couple of things to keep in mind about Quarry's dementia is that he fought from a very early age and hardly ever wore a head guard when sparring...he also had a bad coke problem which burnt his septum out...not saying these would be the cause...but neither would of helped...Chuvalo on the other hand went in with all the top names of the day including Ali twice (before and after his ban) and was never KO'd... is a pretty healthy and together 80yr old.
  3. Because of the dogs i had at the time i done both sides an back of mine...proper job concrete posts and gravel boards closed board panels the lot...for peace of mind and keep everyone happy and all that...two bags of postcrete an rubble in every hole...f**k trying to smash that lot out and dragging it to my next place!!...its done its job...move on lifes too short
  4. Out of them i've only drunk in the Crown bar in Belfast...the other 16 are on my to do list...years back i spent a weekend in the Chinaman pub in Dublin...they used to put bands on in the celler...suprised that ones not on the list!
  5. You have the right of it there for sure Mick...I would of maybe only given Pulev a punchers chance of beating Joshua...but with the wise old head of his trainer Ullie Wegner in his corner...whos taken a lot of fighter to world/European titles...I thought they would of came with a game-plan to exploit some of Joshuas flaws...and made a fight of it...but...Takam's tough...but not tough enough to keep me in on a Saturday night Some harsh sounding opinions from some on the Joe Joyce lad...when you think friday night was his pro debut...
  6. the holy desert the bread pudding with custard? no mate just on its own...nothing like the old girl used to make when we was kids...its like a cake...its all the stall sold...lovely old job!
  7. If i remember right they do a roast dinner in a carton out of a stall in Greenwich indoor market...proper nice!...(but my favourite stall was the one that just done breadpudding)
  8. Coming on well Lee...i like that a lot...as long as it means something to you thats all that matters...right bunch a peterperfects on here
  9. Teddy getting it spot on as usual!...we was saying before the fight Golovkin would need a stoppage in Vegas as he wouldn't be getting a fair decision...so no surprise really...big money in a re-match and all that...Saunders put in a good shift after such a long lay off...but Monroe should really think about calling it a day after that...we was having a good laugh this end...local lad Sam Sexton goes to Scotland to fight Gary Cornish for the British Heavyweight title in a few weeks...looks like the winner can look forward to having to face Daniel Duboius...f**k sake that will give him something
  10. Well one wouldn't want ones towel yucked in on one would one haha...you sounding like prince Charles there mate...may that explains why you referred to Saunders as 'pure scum' the other day over a bit of gym banter...now I respect Jimmy and Mark Tibbs as some of the best British trainers but as far as discipline goes well they couldn't stop Kevin Mitchell gambling partying&pissing the best years of his career away when he trained with them could they...Saunders main problem in the past has been fitness...under Dom Ingle he certainly looks like he's got that sorted out!...Saunders is by far
  11. Hes just turned 23...hes just starting
  12. Yes Rusty... he not fought anyone yet...but looks good so far...don't get me wrong here...im not anti black boxers just peoples attitudes to decent white ones...Sam Sexton's fighting Gary Cornish for the British title up your way soon...what you think of that one
  13. Race, colour and all that don't normally come into it with sportsmen with me...and I normally support the 'home' fighter...but the one thing that takes the shine of Joshua for me as a British sportsman is that he was happy to wrap himself in the union jack at the Olympics...happy to use British tax payer funded olympic facilities even as a pro...and happy to line his bank with money off British punters...but what does he do as a thank you to the country that gave him everything...he goes out and gets a massive Africa tattoo with Nigeria out lined...comes across just a little un grateful but ty
  14. Its Happening not this Saturday but the one after...23rd of September Manchester arena...Parker landed on sunday training at David Hayes gym...both fighters looking fit and ready...no hype or bullshit...hope its a good fight
  15. As the other fella said that's an old article...people still seem to have a thing for Fury even tho hes retired and shut up...I don't think he will be back now...and if he did hes spent too long out...mores the pity in my opinion as he made the heavyweight scene that bit more interesting...Tyson's cousin Huey fights Parker for the WBO title in Manchester in a couple of weeks...not that youd notice it as Hennessy have so far done a piss poor promotion
  16. just out of interest , anybody know when AJ fighting again, thought it was in dec maybe Wilder . Pulev on the 28th Oct at Cardiff
  17. f***ing love pie and mash me!...been to Manzies and the one in Camden a few times...prefer gravy to that watery parsleysauce liquor stuff but im not that fussed...when the Canaries have a mid week match in the winter...me and my mate have our tea in a Aussie pie&mash shop called flaming galahs...the bloke makes all his own pies...the business with mash gravy and mushy peas!
  18. Was up that way in may...first time in 12yrs...we always used to holiday round Fort William when the kids where younger...climbed Nevis a couple of times wth the kids as teenagers... Glen Nevis is great for walking and as others have said through Nevis gorge to the steal falls is really something to see...we went early morning and had the meadow to ourselves and had the dog off the lead...if you get the chance take the Corran ferry and head north to Malaig via Mull...we used to stay around Ardnamurchan a lot...theres a little bar at the back of the Strontian hotel called the bothy bar...dog fr
  19. Looks like Canelo going for an early stoppage...but he can pack on as much weight as he likes...we all know Golovkin can take a punch...that weight will effect Canelo's handspeed and stamina as the fight goes on in my opinion...Golovkin stops him late rounds...and he will need a stoppage in Vegas...America's lacking stars in boxing right now...and as we seen they will try and hang on to this one by fair means or foul...looking forward to this gonna be the first time I pulled an all nighter for a fight for years!
  20. saw the Specials at Brixton when they first reformed...think it was original line up?...worst band I ever seen live!...Terry hall like a reluctant old tramp...at £40 a pop he can f**k off back to fun boy3...seen the beat (but not with the white bloke singing) and Bad manners they was good...liked the first two Madness albums...but couldn't stand the house of fun our house type stuff they did...see them play after the racing at Newmarket...they was a lot better than I thought theyd be...also see Suggs do his one man show thing that was good...there was a yank band used to gig over here in the 9
  21. A little more north and west for me...stayed up in Strontian in may...perfect!
  22. Been a regular visitor to London since the 80's...Gigs, football, boxing, drinking...we all know England has the best Pubs in the world...and London has some of the best old boozers in England...the thing you always notice is those in the pubs are (other than a few tourists) mainly white and English...stick to the pubs...you cant go wrong
  23. Say what you like about Cromer...but they sure know how to thro a carnival!
  24. did you see his last outing at the Copperbox? I was there...but missed Hughies exhibition thing...we was still in the pride of spittlefields sinking a few...did see him shake hands with Parker tho...the night ended in a brawl in the stands...got tickets for Manchester too...think the main reason its slow to sell is because the Fury's have gained a reputation for pulling out of fights...think sales will pick up nearer the time all being well with both fighters...would love to see Hughie win...hes got nothing to lose and everything to gain... but think Parker will have to much for him.
  25. See him fight the other week in Stratford mate lol
