    Hatton rumoured to be fighting against Katsidis on Nov 24

    Katsidis is a very credible name but is years past his best (coming out of retirement for this) and has agreed to fight at 147 which is 1.5 stone above his best fighting weight

    Hope he is getting paid well

    Jesus, that's awful.

    Just looks like a case of wrong time, wrong place.

    I remember his fight with the younger Klitschko; Sanders floored him three or four times in a couple of rounds.

    Orlando Cruz comes out fighting

    Or rather comes out as gay whilst still fighting. From the BBC.

    Always a ballsy move to come out in public, but doubly and trebly so to do it whilst still active in such a physically uncompromising sport. Fair play to him.

    The Price is wrong for Fraudley

    From the BBC.

    Big Dave Price, the de facto good guy on the current British heavyweight scene, batters the former Olympic gold medallist to defeat in one round.

    I would say this must surely be the end for Harrison, but I've called that wrong before.

    I hope Daniel Geale kicks Mundine from here to Hobart and back. Appalling comments from Mundine at the press conference, unsurprisingly.

    RIP Manny Steward

    From the BBC.

    Arguably the greatest boxing trainer of them all. 43 world champs including Tommy Hearns and Lennox.

    Vale.

    Won't end well, surely?
    A loss in 9 for the former Hitman, then.

    I think a lot of the boxing press who'd somehow talked the comeback up as not an absolutely appalling decision want to have a good, hard look in their shaving mirrors today. Before the fight Hatton looked cut but his face betrayed him; had the gaunt look of a man tight at the weight and the lines and wrinkles gave him a wizened appearance of a man twenty years older than his 34 years.

    I take no pleasure in being right, because he's a good bloke, but it's an unforgiving business.

    Which leads us onto Freddie...

    Carl Froch summed it up well; imagine if Ricky fought anyone good?

    Hatton looks like someone who needs some serious taking care off and Hatton saying that's the end of Ricky Hatton after the fight was fairly worrying considering he has suicidal thoughts.

    Richard Dawson's filled out since he was bowling for England, eh?

    Nah, seriously I hope Fred puts on a good show. Sky has had a documentary on for the last couple of Thursdays From Lord's To The Ring (which is an ace title, tbf) and he's been deadly serious about it all. Dropped 20kgs and, as one can see from the weigh in film in the link above, is in much better shape than his opponent, who is sporting some trainee bitch tits.

    Fred is very rough around the edges and, from the sparring I've seen is a bit of a "slapper". By which I mean he throws punches without being planted and sometimes hits with the heel of his hand rather than flush with his fist. Nearly broke his thumb landing one such, in fact.

    Fight itself isn't on Sky, so might have to "tune" my "telly" to another channel to catch it.

    The other guy is going to have to drop some weigh before the fight. It's hard to overcome a natural weight advantage. Will be rooting for Freddie of course but it could be bad.

    Heavyweight, so can in effect weigh as much as they want.

    Didn't see any of the fight, but just saw the ref on the news raising Freddie's arm - the bloke he was fighting looked absolutely filthy about the decision!
