I did. It was bad form. Have to say though, if it was that much of an issue, the ref would have given him 5 mins to recover instead of counting him out. He should have had his guard up, simple as.
Mayweather's a prick, no doubt, but for me he remains the best there is and one of the best ever. I'll cheer anyone on against him but I don't see anyone, including Pac Man, ever beating him.

His attitiude after the fight was shit. If he wasn't such a dick, he'd be held in as high regard as Leonard, Hagler, Duran et al IMHO.

Khan making a pigs ear of this fight.

Freddie Roach must be doing his nut.

The boy's fighting like an idiot.

Khan loses.

Deserved to. Maybe more than the other guy deserved to win.

Khan just fought like a muppet.

Khan did fight like a belter tonight, and didn't deserve to win. The other lad I started rooting for with his Rocky-like story and the way he kept getting stuck into Khan - it was a cracking fight and Khan can have no complaints as to his actions.

Anyone stay up to see Froch get a lesson?

Good grief the boy hid nae idea. The yank wiz too fast, too strong, too savvy.

Kell Brook looks nae bad.

I love Jim Watt's commentary. The only context in which a Scotsman could get away with calling one man trying to knock seven shades out of another a "fellow". Those partaking in the noble art of pugilism shall henceforth and forever be called "fellow". I must have missed that in the Marquis' rule book.

I've missed the Khan and Froch fights. Looks like its been a bad year for British boxing really. I caught a glimpse of Froch on Sky News this morning. Looks like he was complaining that his opponent was hitting him at distance and then closing in and hitting him again, and not standing where Froch wanted to hit him

Just a quick note.

I am part of a sports forum and they are doing a Q&A with Frank Maloney if any of you want to ask him a question!

http://www.606v2.com/t23179-frank-maloney-feature

Thought I would point it out for those who like boxing.

Klitschko v Chisora; I wasn't too fussed about this fight, but after Dereck's antics at the weigh-in I hope Vit makes a fool of Chisora.

Why are so many British boxers monumental cocks?

I like Del, dunno why really, the slap was stupid, but then again so was them banning him from using his walk on music.
Way to go to add a bit of spice though.


If you want to see a real monumental heavyweight cock I give you Tyson Fury.

I just hope they speed up Price and establish him as Britains No1.

I suspect Fury has a world title fight and that's why he's ducking Price (who would probably beat Fury and burst his bubble). Price is pretty good, Fury's an out of shape lump who is fortunate to be very tall.

Chisora's going to get beaten to a pulp tomorrow night for that. There was probably a good chance Vitali was up for an easy night of jabbing Del Boy for 12 rounds. Not anymore.
Say what you like about the Klitschko brothers but they always seem decent guys and would never do or say the sort of things Haye and Chisora have done.. Fair play to Vitali for not retaliating.

Oh I think Del is going to get beat but the K2 do plenty behind the scenes to upset fighters.
Stupid clauses in contracts, banning walk on music while they have their highly produced walk on videos.
They have to have total control, hopefully Price keeps improving and proves his chin. A couple of years and partly due to their age and he'll take them both out.

Well that was unexpected!

Chisora puts in a very good performance (but still ultimately loses).

?but that wasnt the full story was it! Haye and Chisora have a punch up where David Haye appears to bottle Chisora (but ends up glassing his own manager, ADam Booth!). The two of them are class A idiots whilst the K Bros ooze class.

If you havent seen the press conference footage:

Forgive me, I'm not a keen follower of Boxing so don't kow all ins and outs, but I thought Haye had retired so why is he evn there aside from stirring shit or is that his 'party piece' and having just seen clip on you tube, a) he did glass other guy and b) he knew DC would approach him given enough winding up, they are bred animals and then let them off lesh, that's what is going to happen, all this 'respect' bullshit. It's one caged animal v another.

Also, whose idea was it to stage a press conference with beer bottles and crates of beer all over the place, what next, an arsonist convention at a bonfire night ?

I think you have to be pretty naive to think the K's don't like to stir things up.

I never said they didnt stir things up - their contracts are draconian to say the least. And Wladimir watching the rewrapping of the hands is another mind game.

What I was trying to say, is that in this instance, Del and Dave did this all themselves (with possibly some staged help from Warren). The K Bros always handle themselves with dignity IN PUBLIC.

It's always been like this though. There's been plenty of pre-fight battles outside of the ring throughout the years.

The incident was disgraceful. Chisora is a bum and Haye is a total clown. Talking about having the mind f a ten year old, when Haye was shouting at Klitchko "The offer was accepted, why are you not fighting me" surely I wasn't the only one who was thinking........."Because you don't have a licence"?

As for the allegation that Haye used a bottle, footage is a little inconclusive

There's always been the odd pre-fight scuffle sure, but what happened last night was pure pantomime farce. It was actually embarrassing. Seriously, the state of boxing at the moment is the worst I can ever remember it being, even with Pacquiao doing his best to keep it vaguely interesting.

That's the first thing I thought. I originally thought it was staged, but there are about 3 or 4 different camera angles to look at on Youtube, and one of them clearly shows Haye smashing the bottle, it looked pretty nasty.
And as for Frank Warren saying it was disgraceful, he was happy laughing while Haye goaded Chisora. I bet he's seen some big pound signs after that.
