Thought this might be of interest to some of you.

A History of the Lineal Heavyweight Championship (1885 – 2018):

Great read Rian.

2.) 05 Jan 2019 23:56:27
It's an interesting read. Also worth noting that by the looks of it, Lennox Lewis was the only man to retire while still holding the lineal title. It then took 5 years for a new lineal holder to be announced.

Some good news. Adonis Stevenson has come out of his coma and is speaking.


1.) 18 Dec 2018 12:49:35
Great news Rian.

2.) 18 Dec 2018 19:16:36
Brilliant news. Hope he's alright and not suffered any problems from being in a coma.

3.) 18 Dec 2018 19:38:22
I've read that he has some paralysis down one side but it's unconfirmed.

4.) 21 Dec 2018 14:33:46
Now I'ver read that he's still in the coma so I don't know what to believe.

No doubt Taylor won the first six rounds but the stoppage was terrible. Sorry to disappoint you all, but absolutely no way Taylor wins this tourney based on what I saw tonight.


1.) 04 Nov 2018 10:04:37
You must have been watching a different fight from me Rian, Josh is going to dominate this division for years to come. i agree the ref jumped in a bit quick, but the stoppage was going to come seconds later anyway, Josh is an explosive body puncher, he's like a lower weight Marvin Hagler.

2.) 04 Nov 2018 19:43:17
Martin was really poor, but he wouldn’t have been stopped in the 7th had the ref not jumped in and waived it off after an illegal punch that should have earned Taylor at least a warning and maybe even a point deduction. Taylor has an excellent skill set, but he has to get past Baranchyk and Prograis to be considered the best in the division, and that is asking a lot.

3.) 05 Nov 2018 14:17:46
Martin's knee or glove never touched the canvas Rian, that's how they were legal punches, is there any other rule you want to know mate? lol.

4.) 05 Nov 2018 15:07:35
I’m talking specifically about the left hook to the back of Martin’s head before he threw two more (legit) left hooks to the body as Martin staggered. You thought I was talking about them. I wasn’t.

I don’t think Taylor is a dirty fighter or did it on purpose but It’s still an illegal punch. A few seconds earlier Martin landed a shot that was a bit low and Laughlin warned him which was completely fair.

I think Laughlin is a bit quicker to stop a fight now after all the criticism he took for the Blackwell stoppage. Martin isn’t in Taylor’s class, but let’s say Taylor took a similar shot in the semi or final. I’d like to see him given the chance to see out the round, especially if it’s late in the round.

5.) 05 Nov 2018 22:13:09
There was nothing in it Rian, all sorts of illegal blows go on during fights, you don't get payed overtime in boxing.

6.) 05 Nov 2018 23:24:17
Next time read my post properly or else send me a copy of that weird rule book that no one apart from you has ever seen.

7.) 06 Nov 2018 16:18:45
What are you talking about Rian? I'm talking about the dirty tricks that go on mostly on the blind side of the referees, you should have went to the same Glasgow boxing clubs as me mate, they were a great education for the dark arts of boxing, watch the fight again and watch Martin's head anytime Josh got in close, then tell me if Josh was being over dirty, Martin was also warned for a low blow.

8.) 06 Nov 2018 23:06:20
It's ok James. I wouldn't be objective about him if he was from Dublin.

But I wish Josh and you the very best pal.

9.) 07 Nov 2018 10:27:57
What are you on about Rian?



03 Nov 2018 21:15:54
Very good odds on Donaire. I was at the Frampton fight. He won't outbox Burnett but he hurt Frampton a couple of times. Still dangerous at 35.


1.) 03 Nov 2018 21:38:32
Not quite sure what happened there. I don’t think it was a body shot. Maybe a pelvic or hip injury.

2.) 03 Nov 2018 23:05:59
Absolutely gutted for Ryan, thought he was boxing well.

3.) 04 Nov 2018 14:48:50
Slipped disc mid fight. Ouch!

Excellent article Roro.

It’s absolutely sickening that Saudi Arabia is allowed to host this fight. At least 104 people have been executed there this year including an 18 year old who was simply protesting against the government aged 16. I have zero respect for anyone who profits from working there. Hearn, Joshua, Ruiz, Khan, Fury, all of you are greedy c u next Tuesdays with no regard for human rights.


{Ed001's Note - people are executed in the USA every year as well but you don't complain about fights being held there.}

The thing was huge. Lucky it didn't hit his head. He's 32 now and probably won't fight again until next year. Just makes it even harder given that Arum has made it known there's no easy route back to a world title at 126. I really don't want to see him at 130. I'd rather see him retire than move up again. He is a two weight world champion and has nothing left to prove.

It’s a really nice park, I’ve never been up that end of the falls during the day. I’m delighted for Conlan, just think at 27 he has some way to go.

Glad you met Arum. I come up to Belfast a lot, so shame I didn’t meet you.

Very disappointed for Paddy Gallagher, I’m a big fan. It was tough.

Poor turnout last night Roro. Weather didn’t help I know. Thought fight of the night was Luke Keeler v Arias. Don’t think Conlon will be a world champion, but best of luck to him, I hope I’m wrong.

By the way I think they’re just building Fury’s profile in the states to sell the Wilder rematch. Frustrating for fans, but Arum is a very smart man.
