Yeah, why were you so jovial after getting beaten by Joshua?

When did you realise you weren't good enough for the upper echelons and does it affect your preparations for fights.

Are you happy to be used as experience for up and coming heavyweights and does it pay well enough.

Do you feel that maybe you just need one good showing/win against a prospect to throw you into a higher level.

(sorry if this seems disrespectful) Do you always box to your full ability when you know your in there as a stepping stone or do you sometimes hold back for fear of being blacklisted for these tasks (I vaguely remember a journeyman stating this a few years back)

Having been in the ring with a fair few new contenders who do you rate most? How do you see them getting on?

Re: your last question Derby. Do you reckon that's more a case of the journeyman revising history after the fact and giving it the big one (I could have won if I tried)? I don't think boxing's the kind of sport you go in half baked. I just think it's such a dangerous sport, you have to protect yourself. Just to dangerous not to give it your all when the other guy could potentially do serious damage to your health.

It's possible Dipper and is something i've thought about for a while. But to clarify it a bit, I don't mean like not training properly but maybe not letting off with as much power or showing off your skills as much as you could.

I've become fascinated with the idea of the journeyman since my kids started and have nothing but the highest respect for these guys that know they're there to lose yet carry on anyway.

Gavern did say after the fight, Joshua has the best training money can buy whereas he has to train after he's been to work and put the kids to bed. Lots of respect but bloody dangerous to go into a fight knowing your the sacrificial lamb.

Probably does have a 9-5 Truss but perhaps it doesn't go too far and he clearly has an aptitude for throwing punches. Problem is, that means he comes up against people who hurt people for a living.

When I was growing up I thought I could play a bit of football, in reality I was athletic and big for my age. Further I went I met people who were just as physically fit but had superior technique. Steep learning curve but nobody was hitting me in the face. I've never boxed but I imagine that moment of realisation when you know there are levels above you is quite daunting. Kudos to the journeymen who can dust themselves off and go again.

A lot of these fighters are Boxing prostitutes mate............

Not that I have a problem with prostitution....Unlike Gavern they satisfy the fans....and I don't have to watch it..

Would you accept the challenge of the "Nature Boy" Rick Flair to fight over the rights to "Whoooooooo!"?

Would you accept the challenge of the Beastie Boys to fight for the right to party?

Because not everyone can just get gifted a job & a house from their father in law??


As stated by others, he has a 9-5, but clearly it doesn't provide the life for his family which he desires. He's got sufficient talent to cut it at the lower echelons of pro-boxing so works bloody hard to use that to better his earnings.

Who knows, earning £20-30k pa as a journeyman might double what he's getting for the 9-5.
