Thoughts r with Patrick Day who is in a coma after his fight on Saturday night.

{Ed025's Note - very much so roro..


1.) 16 Oct 2019 20:35:29
Absolutely. Hope he makes a full recovery.


2.) 17 Oct 2019 00:23:53
He has unfortunately passed away. Rest in Peace.

3 deaths this year, this is quite worrying.

{Ed025's Note - very worrying hsf..

We all knew the risks when we went between the ropes, but it doesn't make it any sadder, it's a sport we all love, but a highly dangerous sport, I also feel for Patrick's opponent, he will be absolutely devastated.

Good display by Usyk in his debut. His footwork and boxing abilities are amazing, it's just does he have the power to hurt these big men and keep them from walking him down? i'm not sure, Looking forward to finding out though.

Witherspoon landed a total of 21 punches on usyk on Saturday night (16 jabs and 5 power shots), Usyk's face didn't look like he had just eased to a one sided victory (which he had) it looked like he had been in a war. He has abit of a conundrum because he's going to have to put on weight to be more physical and absorb the punches better but he doesn't want to loose his speed because that's one of his greatest weapons, he will never have the power to hurt these big men but he has to be big enough to not get bullied.

Have only watched the highlights but Usyk just looked like he was in a sparring session. Never got going and just did his basics. I would imagine that was down to probably not knowing who Chazz Weatherspoon is - much like the rest of us.

What yous think of the usyk weigh inn? He looked very small in size to me, going to take him awhile adjusting to the size difference. He doing it right though gradually getting bigger by eating the right foods and slowly gaining muscle, expect him to be bigger in 6 months time. Interesting to see how he gets on 2nite.

Spong fails drugs test, out of fight against Usyk this weekend.


1.) 08 Oct 2019 12:42:57
One of these days a fighter might actually be clean, but I won't hold my breath.


2.) 08 Oct 2019 13:53:20
Can't say I'm surprised really. Not meaning I knew Spong was doped up or anything, I'm just saying I don't get surprised by any fighter testing positive.

Boxing is just one of them sports that can never be truly safe. It's like the north west 200 motorbike race or the one they have in the isle of Man. The Dunlop family have had about 3 or 4 brothers die in them races but still members of their family race, because they love it. Same with boxing.

I read on average 13 boxers die in the ring every year. I would like to see a tougher stance of concussions like the concussion protocol they have in the NFL. Trainers and Promoters and fighters themselves have to be truthful about what happens in the gym. To many fighters r being hurt or knocked out in the gym and it's not reported, if u r knocked out in the gym you should be given a 28 day rest from boxing just like u would if u were knocked out in a fight. They should introduce punishments for any gym not obeying the rules. Could also look at how fighters cut weight. a lot of them seriously damage their health by cutting so much weight, possibly moving the weigh in closer to the fight might help this. In reality though boxing is the hurt business and without making them box using pillows as gloves it's never going to be 100% safe.

Yeah its confirmed now he's been charged with driving under the influence of alcohol, was just a matter of time. Numerous videos of him drunk in nightclubs and he did turn up to the Garcia vs Porter presser pissed.
Hes a very lucky man to be alive and not be facing a serious charges here, I hope he sees this as a chance to sort his problems out.
