    Mayweather fight on free to air - nice

    Mayweather class above made for a relatively boring fight unless you appreciate the skills of a master craftsman

    BBC Sport - Audley Harrison announces U-turn on retirement plans

    Guy is nuts but I hope it doesn't end as badly for him as it has for others

    I suppose to be fair to Audrey he's only been retired about five minutes.

    However one struggles to see the point, earning more money aside. Patently hasn't the heart or the chin for the highest levels.

    Very good win by Carl Froch tonight, avenging one of his two previous career defeats against the Danish fighter Mikkel Kessler.

    Fun fact - a few years ago he defeated my second cousin (my cousin's son) in a British and Commonwealth title fight.

    Ha, that's so cool.

    Well, not that Froch beat the boy, beat you know what I mean.

    Given your well-established connexions to Derby, I'm guessing your second cousin's initials would be DH?

    That's the one. A tearaway as a lad, but getting into boxing and martial arts made him. His dad is my mum's brother's son, and we used to be very close. Even closer when he used to keep a pub.

    Poor Bonavena - dead by '76. Shot at a ranch in Reno by the husband of a former madam he was filling in.

    Boxing is a cruel sport

    As for Audley, reckon I could knock him out with the way that he holds his right low (he is a southpaw) and chin up
    Thompson KOs Price again.

    It's a real shame for Price, who is a genuinely good guy, but the step up in class to fight a guy who, an early career loss aside, hasn't lost to anyone except Klitschko jr was clearly too much.

    An immediate rematch seemed doubly optimistic too.

    Was on at stupid o'clock over here, so no. Guess it's all about the money, but kinda odd a bout where an Aussie is fighting a Pom is held in Atlantic City.

    Anyway, another Australian triumph...

    Srs, decision dodgy? Splits often are.

    I wouldve given it to Geale, but thats from an aussie so probably a bit biased

    It was definitely close no doubt and you could easily make a case for giving it to either one

    Barker definitely a lot stronger down the stretch than i thought he was going to be
