    Worst British winning Olympian ever.

    At least the Pacquiao Margarito fight was watchable albeit just as one sided as the Haye Harrison bout. What a legend Pacquiao is.

    Harrison was truly appalling - didnt come to fight at all

    Magarito - pfft

    Guy is a limited, cheating **** who should've been banned for life and was a hand-picked opponent from the same stable as Manny

    2 fights that were designed to rip-off the punters and nothing more

    Didn't see Audrey/Haye fight but thought it interesting that even now Harrison has refused to pull the plug.

    Can't see where a five times defeated, gun-shy 39 year old can go from here.

    If Pacquiao wanted to hand-pick an opponent why would he pick someone 6 inches taller and 20lbs heavier? Margacheato is **** and a ****, but certainly had a few things going for him that Pacquiao had never been up against before (and frankly a guy his size has no business fighting a guy Margacheato's size at all).

    Pacquiao was tremendous again. His fitness is unbelievable, he is a true legend of the sport, I sincerely hope that him and Floyd Mayweather can iron out the problems and get the fight that the whole world wants to see, on.

    Margarito had his moments though, and putting everything he's done in the past to one side, if that is possible, he showed amazing warrior like qualities in surviving some of the onslaughts inflicted upon him from Pacman. A six-weight world champion is an unbelievable feat.

    As for the Haye-Harrison dance, that was as appauling as it gets for the two complete rounds of the fight. Even the ref had to step in and tell them to at least think about throwing a punch. Harrison had the opportunity that many believe he never should have got, and he goes and does what he did last night! All this hype about his left-hand, and he never even threw it, he was fighting for the world title, something he's dreamed of since he was a kid!!!Still at least he kidded a lot of people out of their hard earned money to line his own pockets, a job in marketing (or fraud) may be his next career option.

    Who has Margarito fought?

    Apart from the following, it's a big zero when it comes to world class

    Williams - 'cheato was picked apart and exposed

    Cotto - 'cheato was battered before scoring a late tko

    Mosley - totally outclassed by a fading Sugar and exposed as a cheat which seriously questioned his "comeback" against Cotto

    Guy is a fraud and a cheat who only gained this fight by virtue of being under the same management

    Zero credibility to Manny for this one I'm afraid

    Martinez? Margarito only lost a narrow decision to Williams (currently ranked #1 middleweight in the world by boxrec) and he knocked out Martinez (#2 middleweight in the world according to boxrec). It really depends what you consider "world class"....Cotto was the closest thing to Pac and Floyd when Margarito beat him as well. If you consider that the top 4 or 5 guys in each division are "world class" than I think that Margarito is definitely in that class, with the rest of the pretenders battling away below the big 2.

    Of course, Margarito's defining win against Cotto has massive question marks over it, and I hate him as much as the next guy. The plaster in the gloves thing is life-ban worthy.

    Speaking of Williams, what about him v Pacquiao? I think I might have mentioned this here before. If Pac is gonna call himself a super middleweight, or even a welterweight, he can fight Williams. It would be an incredible size mismatch, Pac would struggle to even reach his head lol. Might be interesting.

    Williams beat Martinez in a highly disputed decision before the latter went on to beat Pavlik for the undisputed middleweight title

    Until the Williams fight, Martinez was regarded as being the quintissential journeyman but has certainly proved himself as being world class in his last 2 fights

    Last I heard, Martinez was returning to 154 lbs as he is too small for 160 and was targetting a rematch with Paul. However, Williams apparently wants Mosley as that's where the bucks are

    Tbh, Paquiao should either fight Mosley or PBF as they're the only 2 fights that really can be justified to the public at large and the others would probably entail a catch-weight which really defeats the whole purpose anyway

    Sorry, I may not have been clear enough. I was referring to Margarito. Margarito beat Martinez by KO.

    Anthony Mundine Knocked Out: Video | Garth Wood KOs Mundine: Video

    The general consensus is that Wood is nothing more than a pub brawler so it looks as though the Mundine circus has finally been shut down

    Looked like such a scrappy fight. The nation rejoices though.

    Yep, he certainly looks that way, although he's now strung together wins over Oganov/Kariuki/Mundine...not exactly elite fighters, but fairly up there in the Aussie scene at least.

    Wood seems to have a uniquely effective method of tackle/bleed/punch on the break

    I only just realised watching it again this morning, but I reckon a headclash had a big part to play in that...Mundine goes in to throw a right hand and suddenly cowers back against the ropes as if he's been hit, even though Wood doesn't even throw a punch....he then hardly defends himself as Wood lands that last 3 punch combo.

    Sonny Bill the boxer...

    From the BBC.

    When did this happen? It completely slipped under my radar & (apparently) he's already fought twice.

    If the pic is a fair reflection his oppo looks like he may've skipped a few early morning runs. But not any meals...
