Looking forward to the boxing this Friday night from inside the BT studios. I think Foster vs Beech could be a good scrap.

Will be good to finally have boxing back. Have you seen Dubois and Joyce will have warmup fights before fighting each other.

Must be trying to delay it so that they can put it on ppv. I don't think Warren will put any ppv shows on until theirs some sort of crowd. Hearn is doing the back garden show so that he can put ppv shows on becuse its different. Whyte leaving Tibbs was a surprise.

Good watch that mate.

Surely not. He's not THAT stupid, is he?

28 Jun 2020 10:11:54
Its ridiculous. Boxing created this problem by not handing out proper punishments. Miller has to be made an example of.

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Jun 2020 15:44:41
Someone in the comments of a video I've just watched said that he's failed 5 times, including his kick boxing days.

The guy is a disgrace and should be banned for life globally.

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Jun 2020 22:29:44
Yeah he has mate one in his kickboxing days, 3 against Joshua and this time. Guy is a joke.

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Jul 2020 15:34:56
Hes denying it lol. He said he 'unwillingly ingested it'.

Yeah I'm sure you were kicking and screaming as they brought you the pill/ needle.
Twat.

27 Jun 2020 22:32:20
Miller failed another drugs test. Enough is enough, make an example out of him and not only ban him for life I'd charge him with a criminal charge something like attempted murder. Making a complete mockery of the sport.

Whyte vs Povetkin 15th or 22nd of August.

Believable0 Unbelievable0

27 Jun 2020 07:23:10
I've got a feeling Whyte is going to try and make a statement. He's the first high profile heavyweight back in action, he's fighting a top 10 fighter and he's quite an angry lad at the minute.

Plus there is the added fact that Povetkins punch resistence has been deteriorating since the Price fight and he's getting on abit at 41/ 42.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Jun 2020 16:46:30
Jarrell Miller to fight on July 9th. That will be a sad day for boxing.

Believable0 Unbelievable0

20 Jun 2020 11:08:10
A sad day indeed. The guy should be banned for life from all combat sports.
Disgusting cheater, who even had the audacity to slap a reporter's drink out of his hand and demanded respect, after said reporter questioned his drug use.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Jun 2020 10:50:07
Totally agree mate lifetime ban although I don't even think that would stop them from cheating. didn't work in cycling, I just think some people r just cheaters.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Jun 2020 18:40:19
Yeah, I think it was Lance Armstrong who said that in his final race, when you look back at the final standings you have to go down to like 28th place to find a drug free racer. That is insane!

At least cheating won't kill your opponent when it comes to PED's in Cycling, wish I could say the same for Boxing.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Jun 2020 23:47:24
"At least cheating won't kill your opponent when it comes to PED's in Cycling, wish I could say the same for Boxing. "

I couldn't agree more more. That's the difference.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Jun 2020 13:59:05
Exactly mate.

I think fighters that get caught with PED's in excess like Miller did, where it's conclusive that he was doing it for performance gain. Should be tried in court for attempted murder.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Jun 2020 10:45:10
I totally agree mate but there is nothing to stop these cheats. The punishment is worth the risk. The cycling authorities hand out two year ban for using PEDs in boxing Miller just got banned for 6months and when he came back he was rewarded with a bumper new deal and will prob be fast tracked to a world title shot.
Cheating will also happen in sport but if the punishment match the crime then maybe some would think twice.
Miller is a disgrace, that guy has some brass neck on him and tbh so does Bob Arum signing him. I would put money on it that Miller is still cheating I'm some capacity mate. The man is obese walking about there like he's a big man. Makes a complete mockery of the sport.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Jun 2020 19:27:50
I know right? A 300lbs monster that throws 100 punches a round. I'm not going to watch his fight, but I will definitely keep an eye in the punch stats when it's over.

He threw something like 1000 punches in 12 rounds against duhaupus and didn't look out of breath once. I know there are some genetic freaks out there, but fml.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Jun 2020 13:00:45
The guy can't stop lying mate. Even today he's still denying he knew what he was taking eventhough he admitted it when he was caught. He didn't impress me when he was on the gear so don't hold high Hope's for him as a clean fighter.

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Jun 2020 22:52:57
Reading sugar Ray's autobiography atm ' The Big Fight'. Good read, really goes in deep on his drugs use. Ed001, no pressure. Just asking, r u enjoying the research for your article and how u getting on with it mate?

{Ed001's Note - I was really enjoying it, but each time I look at him there is new stories coming out. That starts to get frustrating when you think you are ready to start writing and have to keep putting it on hold while you read through new stuff and have to rethink what you had planned over and over again!! He is a very interesting guy and it really did shock me that he was more than just a pretty boy with lightning quick hands. I never knew much besides the image before the research. I had chosen to do him next as I thought it would be fairly simple and quick to do. I was so wrong.}

Tbh ed I wasnt a massive fan of him personally b4 I started reading his book but tbf its changed my outlook on him. He is extremely honest man and didn't get it easy as some might suggest. Some shocking stories about him ed being abused as a teenager by his boxing coach, was hard to read at times.
That would be really annoying ed if u wrote your article then realised u left out couple of great stories about him. Has that ever happened to u b4?

{Ed001's Note - yes, quite a few times, which is why I am so much more thorough now. I found so many more things about Tyson and Cruyff after writing their articles that I wish I had included. I just have to find excuses to put those stories into articles.}

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Jun 2020 11:56:36
U could write a various stories article or amusing stories from various sports and just put them all in there would be good read I think. Anyway, best of luck with the article mate looking forward to reading it.

{Ed001's Note - yeah, I used to do them before, which led to people asking for the more in-depth articles on those mentioned. No reason why I couldn't put a few of those together again as well. Good thinking Roro!}

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Jun 2020 15:49:45
Nps ed mate I'm always happy to suggest work for other people to do lol.

{Ed001's Note - obviously you are a very kind person then.}

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Jun 2020 16:11:20
I try ed mate. Lol.

{Ed001's Note - yes, you have often been described as trying I can assure you! ;-)

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Jun 2020 16:23:23
God loves a trier ed mate. Lol.

{Ed001's Note - you must be adored then.]

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Jun 2020 17:02:56
And I have the luck of the Irish, I'm very privileged ed. Lol.

{Ed001's Note - considering that they are a nation that was conquered by the Danes and then the English, followed by the way they were treated up until very recently, I have often wondered how lucky that is....}

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Jun 2020 17:32:13
Yeah but at least its sunny 3 days a year ed. can't complain there mate. Lol.

{Ed001's Note - ah yes, famous for its sunshine is Ireland, I forgot about that! I remember my parents took me on a holiday there as a kid, worst 6 months of my life. Actually I think it was only a week, it just felt like 6 months as it never stopped raining! Never been so bored in my life. Still it was good practice for this lockdown, except in those days there was no internet, game consoles, smartphones or anything like that to do.}

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Jun 2020 17:55:02
U obviously weren't here the week of the year were its sunny 3 days ed. Did u not go to the field? Well it's not really a field just has less rocks in it than the others. 😉.

{Ed001's Note - damn we missed that. We saw a horse get punched by some drunk Germans and that was about as exciting as it got.}

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Jun 2020 18:31:46
Now that's something u don't see every day ed. Fitting for the boxing page as Roberto Duran once knocked a horse out.

{Ed001's Note - you probably do see that in Ireland a lot, I have seen that documentary about youngsters growing up in the country, Young Offenders. The question is, which are you - Connor or Jock?}

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Jun 2020 18:42:03
Lol I'm a city boy ed. Them boys in Co Cork r in a field of their own mate. Good show that, funny.

{Ed001's Note - it must be a big country as I went to Irish Village here in Dubai and their website boasted that all the staff came from Ireland. I had never realised that Ireland stretched as far as the Philippines until that day! Either their website is in serious need of updating or someone needs to explain that you no longer count as Irish for having once sat near someone drinking Guinness now Jack Charlton is no longer the manager.....}

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Jun 2020 18:52:44
Do u not know ed, to qualify for the Irish team all u got to do is fly over Ireland. We have recently branched out to other sports. Had a good cricketer called Eoin Morgan, he must have retired but cause havnt seen him playing these days much. Lol.

{Ed001's Note - I know that as I qualify as Irish these days, I just try to keep that quiet....}

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Jun 2020 18:53:42
U in Dubai ed? Will u try and get tickets to any fights over there?

{Ed001's Note - I can't afford to mate. I am only here because I can't afford flights home at the moment. Luckily the govt have made eviction illegal for the moment.}

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Jun 2020 19:13:04
Could be worse mate u could be back in Ireland freezing and soaking lol. Only joking, it's a very difficult time atm mate keep the head up and don't mean this to sound abit cheeky mate but u help a lot of people on these pages I'm sure more than enough would be willing to help u out mate.

{Ed001's Note - everyone is in a similar boat at the moment mate, it will work out in the end I am sure. I have no loans or anything so there are a lot of people worse off than I am. Hopefully things will pick up soon. But then I might well have the luck of the Irish, which would explain why this year has been wetter than normal as well....}

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Jun 2020 19:23:53
Lol I go to Scotland for my summer holidays ed. Haha. That term luck of the Irish do u know where that originated from? I was reading its about the gold mines in America?

{Ed001's Note - I had no idea where it came from to be honest. Is that because it was felt they were finding the best nuggets when panning for them?}

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Jun 2020 19:37:46
So the story goes mate. Something to do with the gold rush and a lot of Irish people prospered in that apparently mate.

{Ed001's Note - yeah I just been reading up and it does seem to be derogatory though, which makes sense as the Irish were not exactly highly thought of. I can still remember in my lifetime seeing signs outside B&B windows in England that read 'No Blacks Or Irish'. Thankfully you no longer see those any more.}

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Jun 2020 20:04:10
Ed I know that the people of liverpool have been labelled with untrue and nasty things in the past. Do u think that might have stemmed from the Irish connection? It's often something I have thought about.

{Ed001's Note - no, it stemmed from Thatcher and her battle with the city. That is why it became a stereotype, she had media backing and used it to turn attention away from why the city stood against her and get people on her side.}

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Jun 2020 20:14:04
Shes not loved over here aswel mate. Cheers ed. Enjoyed talking to u today mate.

{Ed001's Note - you too mate, take care and stay lucky!}

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Jun 2020 20:25:39
Cheers u too mate ☘.

Dont watch UFC but I am impressed with how they r already back up and running and making big fights. I know its easier for them as they r all under one promotion team but boxing needs to get its act together here. Get Whyte vs Povetkin announced asap imo.

Believable0 Unbelievable0

16 Jun 2020 19:10:39
They have done well, but the lack of a crowd is awful, same with Boxing.

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Jun 2020 11:48:13
I have only watched the Tony Ferguson fight from the ufc and I really enjoyed it. The matchups need to be competitive and entertaining. I've watched plenty of fights with fans and its bored the arse off me. At the moment no1 wants to fight with no crowd because they will get less money. The ufc r putting on title fights while boxing is struggling to put on a british level fight, no wonder the UFC is becoming more popular. Getting abit late in the summer for Whyte vs Povetkin to be announced.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Jun 2020 18:41:21
Oh yeah, not trying to put the UFC down or anything, just saying having no crowd (for any sporting event) is awful lol.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Jun 2020 19:36:54
Who wins Wladimir Klitschko vs Vitali Klitschko?

Believable0 Unbelievable0

16 Jun 2020 19:09:54
I think Wlad would win on points, but gets dropped at least once on his way to victory.

Vitali was even more robotic than Wladimir, but had a much stronger chin and arguably more power.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Jun 2020 14:45:22
The WBC have confirmed that Whyte is taking legal action against them, over the date of his mandatory title fight.

About time.

Need ed002 for that one mate.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Jun 2020 19:35:27
Seen that mate. If ed002 is about, can the force majeure clause be used in boxing?

{Ed002's Note - It depends what events the clause, if it exists, discusses.}

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Jun 2020 20:29:55
What about a virus and lost of revenue ed002? Would that count?

{Ed002's Note - I rather doubt such an event is descibed.}

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Jun 2020 20:44:43
Cheers ed002. R u a boxing fan yourself mate? Any favourite fighters?

{Ed002's Note - I can’t stand it.}

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Jun 2020 21:27:42
UFC man? Lol.
