    Italian has this I reckon. Joshua not been good enough.

    Not hopeful.

    Put on a better showing than Evans, but think the big Eyetie has enough in the bank after the first two rounds.

    EDIT: On countback; fair play son. Carped that diem in round 3!!!

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change

    Think the better boxer won. Italian just held on for the last 2 minutes, referee did nowt except let him waste time and it was still level after that dubious second round score.

    Just as well he wasn't fighting a guy from Kazakhstan mind. Would have lost by 10 points.

    Italian was rocking by the end. If it went to countback Joshua was a shoe-in, it was just whether he'd evened it up on points. Chuffed for the lad, he could have a big future if he wants it enough.

    I thought it was very close personally, could've gone either way. Not a robbery for sure though, and the appeal won't work.

    Yaaay.

    Shameless gloating over an optimistic stab-in-the-dark prediction ftw.

    Excellent stuff. Can't believe the Italians appealed.
