    Watching Eubank jr fight Nick Blackwell and win the British middleweight championship
    He is going to be world heavyweight champion like his dad i am predicting
    Fights just like him

    Anyone else watched it?

    Yes I'm into boxing seen a few like Campbell fights with him being local, Carl froch was someone I used to enjoy watching and Mike Tyson, just waiting to watch is show tonight in Vegas, I do believe boxing has maybe had its day, the heavyweight division is a bit of a joke now

    I like any of the fighting sports
    Boxing
    Mma
    Thai boxing
    World combat league
    But boxing is what i grew up doing
    Pity it has gone downhill

    This is good though..no holding. .no hesitating or points awarded to opponent
    1 round so just go mental
    2 teams of 6
    2 fights each
    Team with the most points wins
    See who is top of the league at the end

    Hello davieboy. Yeh, I watched it through blurry eyes ( 50 years old today! Or yesterday now I think). The pub we was in had a few gypsy boys in, and I think (probably wrong) the white was a gypo. Anyhow, it got very lairy in the pub, but my mate Joe was bang on, eubank was far to skillful for the other fella

    I use to love the Eubank-Benn-Colin's era
    It was middleweight division tho
    The heavy weight division tho back then drew in the big numbers

    Middleweight is better to watch as it's not slow like the heavyweights
    Except tyson heavyweights are slow

    I prefer the lightweight-middleweight now
    But back in the day I loved the heavyweights
    They looked the part,all in mega shape
    And electric fights
    Now the heavyweights claim they diet and train hard look like **** and to heavy

    Totally agree. There hasn't been a decent heavy weight since Lennox Lewis I.m.o. Now their just big bouncer type guys who lack the skills.
    And I think your right about the middle weights as well. When it was ben, eubank, Watson and Collins all scrapping each other, it was so exiting
