Bit of a boxing fan, so thought I start a thread with a few big fights this year.

Never tried boxing myself, too much of a girl.

Done a lot of the training over the years.

Oscar Reed started this thread David Benavidz retained his WBC super middleweight title at the weekend.
At 21 he looks something very special.
Should fight the winner of the World Boxing Super Series.
Would like to see it against George Groves.

Boxing was compulsory at my school. Meant to toughen us up a bit I suppose.
Bloody hurts though when punched.

Compulsory

Cricket wasn't even compulsory when I went to school in the UK.

Only football(soccer) and track and field.

I really love boxing. Most of all I like rewatching old fights of Mohamed Ali, Lennox Lewis and Mike Tyson. I think it was the golden age of boxing.

Oh, the fight was really exciting. I love watching battles where not only disputes take place, but also the participants are outstanding and interesting personalities.

AJ was different class.
Lighter and better jab was the story.
