Unfortunately a lot of the WUMS wrecked it so most of the really decent posters left as they couldn't be bothered putting up with their crap

don't complain about it when you add to the silence.

Although wouldn't actually mind seeing you write something decent on why you think Fury is the best ever (or why Joshua et all isn't)

Floyd wants to prove his greatness he should look at the winner of Mikey and Spence

The winner of Mikey and Spence would be a great fight for Manny too

I think Manny would take it if it was viable we all know Floyd wouldn’t go anywhere near it taking on prime contenders isn’t really his thing

You get rewarded for running from your mandatory that’s the state of boxing today

DeGale refused to fight him a year ago all of a sudden wants to fight him what a joke

Manny AND Floyd would be bonkers to take on any of the top guys, they're getting way past it now and no matter what can't live up to both of their legacy's. A loss wouldn't be a major problem considering ages but a complete shutout etc and all of a sudden they're in the 'we're they really any good to begin with'.

Gotta remember Hermy, boxings a business and Degale/Eubank makes sense now (I hate it as much as you btw) should be a good fight as well

Floyd fighting Manny again looks like it anyway

I don’t think either of them would fancy the winner of Mikey/Spence particularly if it’s Mikey

A fight against the winner of that would represent the first non-handpicked opponent for Floyd in years hence why he’s chosen the Pacquiao fight now

He knows he’s got the beating of Manny knows there’s enough doubt about that shoulder stuff to sell the fight

Though if Manny looks sensational against Broner maybe Floyd will stay where he is- top 25-35 of all time. Wins over Mikey and Regis, Spence, Crawford and Thurman then the debate could open about his entry into the top 25 discussion. He’s not in the top 25 imo because he spent the majority of his latter career skirting around the stiffest challenges

Personally I have fallen out of love with Boxing...Politics...PPV and lack of interesting fighters..

Whilst I have no doubt the more sensitive posters found Top hat and myself etc irritating...

Fact is...it was a busy site while Boxing had interesting characters.

Boxing isn't the same sport I grew up loving.

The winner of Floyd/Manny has to take on the winner of Mikey/Spence surely

Or Bud Crawford

Mikey/Spence winner could choose to take on Crawford too

Any other fights in the division at this precise minute play second fiddle to any of the above

All these are crackers:

Floyd vs Manny 2
Floyd vs Mikey
Floyd vs Spence
Floyd vs Crawford

Manny vs Mikey
Manny vs Crawford
Manny vs Spence

Mikey vs Crawford
Crawford vs Spence

N.B  I’m assuming Floyd is still an active fighter who at this stage of his career should be taking on nothing but the best

Who could find a big cuddly bear like you irritating trussy?

I know what you mean, my interest has waned too.... but historically there was a mix of healthy debate and banter on here... you could choose your bag and stomach the thread derailing. There came a time when the lunatics had taken over the asylum.

Such is life. You still debating brexit on the politics forum?

Agree with both Truss and Milky (has it really come to this?).  The decline of this board mirrored the decline of boxing.  The endless Floyd v Manny "will they/won't they, oh look they're doing it now when it no longer matters" saga drove me away from boxing in the same way the endless debates about the subject drove me away from this board.

Sadly with an increasing number of dependents, I actually have to work for a living. It’s an outrage. Trust all is good with you fella... still keeping up the good name of the legal profession?

I'm the watcher on the wall when it comes to preserving the good name of the legal profession.

Rising number of dependants also ruining any chance of swanning off and doing something more relaxing.

You alright Milky, Truss, Flyboy and the rest.

Can't disagree too much with any of you as boxing does seem stuck in the doldrums. I'm struggling to write anything really positive and for the first time in a long time am completely meh with when it's actually on

I think it's become far more about the money-making capabilities rather than the boxers themselves. Gone are the days of people fighting anyone who topped the rankings to defend their title. It's rare that promoters let their charges fight the best in the divisions or even to unify much. Wilder/Joshua should have been signed months ago but for promoters and money issues. It's rare that a fighter is scared to fight another - it's all about the politics and that sucks.

You only have to look at the deal that Alvarez signed to realise that it's just going to get worse. Yes, he's good, but he's not outstanding. And he's a proven convicted cheat. Doesn't matter - money talks. It's a bag of turd now.

Nice to see that some of us are still here. For now at least...

Kerching.

Truss, Can you do us a top 10 reasons why boxing is sh*t thread, just for old times sake. Haz can drop by and disagree with them all and call me a winker.

Must be the New Year, I’m getting all nostalgic.

Hey derby, all the best fella. How can boxing be in the doldrums? it’s so good according to eddie that he can’t avoid date clashes when putting on epic super fights like chisora whyte 2.

It’s just old school boxing fans that think it sucks.

have to echo others about boxings decline. stopped coming on the boxing page long before this forum become so quiet.

i used to love friday night fight nights, two british level fighters around a similar level fighting for british title and on normal sky not ppv, used to get some great fights. now they avoid each protecting their 0, while picking up some alphabet belt ive never heard off and the promoter spouting some nonsense about said fighter. by the time he actually fights a fighter around similar level or anyone decent its banged on PPV. add to that nearly every big "british" fight you can easily call 9 times out of 10. similar on the whole PPV cards, its all mismatches. boring

boxing really needs to remember its a sport, and not just a money making exercise for promoters. will only go so long before all fans stop buying the rubbish the promoters are selling, and the money will dry up. think it may get worse before it gets better sadly.

Friday Night Fights was great but Matchroom killed it as soon as they hooked up with Sky Sports.

Some of the best fights I've seen were on Friday Night Fights (although Paul Smith v Tony Quigley was on it and that was one of the worst fights I've seen).

yeah im similar. think moore v macklin was a friday night, as was moore v rhodes. gomez v arthur may have been a saturday (cant remember) but it was a free to air show on sky. at that time just seemed like there was always great fights on between british fighters. brodie v swain was another off the top of my head.

Pop up every once in a while but Pro boxing is really in the doldrums lately, think corona gave the opportunity for change at all levels but as per the Promoters flubbed it and we're left with the same mismatches, bad decisions and scorecards that leave a bad taste. I only look out for the lads and girls I know now and otherwise take little interest

IMHO there have been some good competitive fights e.g. Cheesman/Eggington, Gill/Belloti, Harper/Jonas and scoring is often contentious however last nights' dreadful "Main Event" featuring Daniel Dubious was a perfect example of your point and exactly what is not needed.

The building up of domestic fights like Dubois against Joyce doesn't help either, decent potential fight yes but worthy of such hype? Definitely not, it's ultimately two good boxers who are unlikely to make an impact at world level but it's the best Warren can offer.
