I'm not sure I agree that the boxing fraternity is racist towards travellers. In London over the years, clubs like Dale Youth, All Stars, Repton, Angel, etc. have welcomed travellers, as have others around the country. Many have been really successful - Johnny Frankham, Tony Sibson, Henry Wharton, Billy Joe Saunders... I do agree that the public is racist towards travellers, but I think Fury might be winning them over.
What most people seem to struggle with is why an apparently unconditioned and overweight boxer can be better than a toned, muscle-bound fighter without an ounce of fat. It's as if Frank Bruno never existed...
I'd agree Andy Lee, as well I think?
Conor Benn continued his looking hopeless but ending up winning run last night. He seems to have some power in his punches, at least.
He makes everything so difficult. Pretty entertaining though!
Dubois looked a class above Gorman last night.
Thought Pacquiao vs Thurman delivered on every level.
Kudos to Thurman roughing it out for 12 rounds considering he looked like this in round 5!
What weight was it at?
I’ve not seen much of Thurman but thought he’d be too young
Full fight https://youtu.be/yKKWaXBZW1Q
So exciting going forward.
Is the Khan deal done??
Manny wants the winner of Errol Spence vs Shawn Porter for a unification fight.
I’d say he’s better of retiring whilst he is still in reasonable shape.
I'm not sure I can add anything to the picture....
Seems like Dillian Whyte failed a drugs test before fighting Rivas, who looked juiced up himself, but the fight was allowed to continue.
Ruiz tweeting about it saying that he won't have the rematch in the UK.
Still nothing further on this.
Pretty poor look for boxing and to an extent UKAD.
Lomachenko public weigh-in at Spitalfields market this lunchtime.
Boxing coach shocker...
Benn in 55year old come back.
The white destroyer Hilary Benn? Might be a political heavyweight but he's 66.
Nigel, just no!
He already sounds punch drunk.
Dubois v Tetteh on this evening.
Alvarez vs Kovalev is a crazy one!
I was on the receiving end of a Ronnie Pickering moment with Gypsy John Frankham years ago. Funnily enough I did know who he was and he did still get himself nicked.
Anyone watch the Smith v Ryder fight? Absolute shambles plus it cost me £80 !!
