sounds about the way i felt. part of me felt bad for the asskicking he was taking for so long, but the other part of me remembered that this scumbag could have legit killed someone with his cheating.

**** him, i guess. between the beatings he got tonight and from pacquiao, i'd say he's still got more coming to him

cotto looked amazing

this.

I was never impressed by any of his boxing but his chin and heart were absolutely amazing a few years ago, but when it comes to cheating in the ring any good attributes mean nothing and you are a scumbag.

I think his real heart for boxing was left with Mosley and he has stuck around because its good money, watching the training leading up to this fight Cotto looked two or three times better in my amateur opinion and I guess it showed tonight. Hopefully promoters don't succumb to his big name and give Margarito anymore paydays unless he somehow actually rebuilds his career in a legitimate manner.

Murray showed heart but just took a beating as it got later

Re: SE Boxing Thread (still waiting for PBF v. Pac)

i did, Murray did the best he could i reckon and was looking good during the 4th/5th rounds when i thought he was going to take over the fight, but they were talking about Rios being 150+lbs v 135lbs Murray and that told in the end with all of Rios shots being very hard.

Murray's walk straight forward style suited Rios perfectly, he hardly moved his head and paid the price.

Heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko pulled out of his fight against France's Jean-Marc Mormeck this weekend after two operations in two days to remove a kidney stone.

thanks for this, very touching stuff.

Manny Stewart doing his best to come across as a bit of a ****.

--

can't remember this fight tbh and i wish they had shown it in it's entirety.

Benn with the admission of taking steroids is a bit wtf, i would never ever have suspected him.

Re: SE Boxing Thread (still waiting for PBF v. Pac)

Chisora got absolutely robbed against Helenius, disgusting, even worse than Lara-Williams.

They made sure Margarito had nothing in his gloves but now I want to know what he had loaded in his chin.

yeah he completely denied being on steroids during the McClellan fight only.

maybe i took him the wrong way but tbh i took that as a clear admission that he was using at other times in his life.

just reading this at the minute and if the quotes are true (only reason they might not be is because they are in the sun) he is much more categorical that he never used steroids.

my bad.

I know/knew people that where in Nigels camp,the guy did every drug under the sun(which would have been bad for him,not good),but never steroids.

Two of the guys that where in his camp (You could see them in his corner in the doc the other night) where well known gangsters.One of them got shot in the head in a gangland killing a few years after the fight.

Nigel was good friends with them,used them for security etc

(They ended making a film about the above)

Two films where based on all the **** that was going on back then......

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rise_of_the_Footsoldier

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0191996/

Most of Benns ring walks you would see them coming in with him and in his corner(Like in the doc the other night) , Carlton Leach and Tony Tucker.Tony got shot in the head and Carlton is meant to be a changed man now.

ty.

seen them both, some bad boys Benn was running about with. watched a docu with Carlton chatting to some guy (Tim Shaw & the Hooligan) for an hour or two telling him how bad he was. i believed him.
