Topic: Forum layout

Change it for FFS. It looks garbage chaps. SecondsOut is a British boxing institution, I've missed the forum since it departed in December 2002 and its great to see SO starting a message board again but this layout is wank.

Sort it out and then it will really take off.

Lightsoot, Interesting comments, think you are being a little harsh. 

Were you one of the members all those years ago when had a forum?  I do not think the owner wants to go back to the old days of the forum.

Bear with it.

It is clearly different.  Got to say when I found out this place was going to start up again I had a good chuckle of all those years ago.

Clearly it is brilliant have decided to bring a place back for us to put our comments concerning boxing, it has been long overdue in my opinion.

I think we should air our comments in a constructive manner and support the place whilst the computer wiz kids make any changes to the place they feel is necessary.

I agree with Lightsoot, this place could really take off if things are done correctly.

The layout is shockingly bad.

Can't see it becoming any less irritating with time, either.

I've got to agree with Tel and Sooty

Maybe it would be helpful to have the discussion threads on the front page, instead of having to first click on "Features"

June 4th - Championship Boxing at York Hall - Barrett-Munika
Olivia Goodwin has made the historic announcement that her first professional boxing event, SEARCH AND DESTROY, is set to take place at York Hall in Bethnal Green, London on Saturday 4th June 2011. What makes this such an historic moment is that Olivia, who is just twenty years old, becomes the UK’s youngest person ever to promote a professional boxing event by a country mile, the youngest previously was some eleven years her senior. Olivia’s plans for her first event belies her tender years, it’s clear she has excellent negotiating skills and a cool head, as she has secured not one but two title fights to co-headline her maiden show as well as putting together a substantial quality undercard. Co-headlining the show are International Masters Lightweight Champion Ryan ‘Mr Attitude’ Barrett, who will be defending his crown for the first time against former Kenyan Super Featherweight Champion Geoffrey ‘The Tiger’ Munika, and former Super Middleweight supremo Toks Owoh, who was originally due to face Tony Conquest for the British Masters Cruiserweight title until Tony damaged his hand in training, against a yet to be named opponent. The massive 16 bout card features TKO team mates Beckton based Dutch Cruiserweight sensation Mitchell Balker, who gets a stern test against Welsh hardman Hari Miles, Carshalton Light Welterweight Danny ‘Cassius ‘ Connor, who faces former WBF Intercontinental title challenger James Todd, Chelsea based Iraqi Heavyweight Ali Adams, Thamesmead Light Middleweight Nathan Weise, Islington Welterweight Brett O’Callaghan and Plumstead Light Middleweight Sam Standing, all against yet to be named opponents. Amongst the stars taking part on 4th June are Luton’s Michael ‘The Real Chunky’ Devine, who takes on Trowbridge’s ‘Dirty’ Dan Carr in a four round Lightweight contest, the sensational Woolwich based Albanian Super Middleweight Eder Kurti, Brentwood Middleweight Kris Agyei-Dua and Minster Kent’s popular Light Heavyweight Dan ‘Woody’ Woodgate. Making their professional debuts at the ‘Search & Destroy’ event are Lightweight Billy Lavelle, who is sure to be tested hard by the experienced Sid Razak, former unbeaten unlicensed fighter Mark ‘PeeWee’ Adams, who will face Louis Byrne. As well as Finchley based Polish Lightweight Marcin Marczak, Middleweights William Cayzer and Diego Burton, who face yet to be named opponents. Tickets, priced £35 (Standard seated) and £50 (Ringside) for the Search and Destroy event are available on-line now at, in person at The TKO Boxing Gym, Gillian House, Stephenson Street, Canning Town, London E16 4SA or from any boxer appearing on the show.

I thaught DeGale Groves was a decent fight, tactical through 10 rounds then seemed to catch fire at the end. Groves fought a masterful technical fight and had the fight won after 10 rounds. DeGale came back well enough to take the last two rounds and looked the stronger fighter at the end, but unfortunatley for James it was to little to late, he just didn't do enough early on.
My hat goes off to both, DeGale for finishing the stronger and not folding when it never went his way (showed balls mate), Groves for sticking to the plan when every inch of him wanted to fight DeGale up close, which in my opinion would have been a mistake.
No doubt there will be a rematch, but not anytime soon, look for Groves to vacate and challenge for the EBU title. Look for DeGale to regain the British title (against Kenny Anderson) and all the hype to start again until they ultimatley meet for a world title in about two years time.
On the face of it this couldn't have worked out better for all concerned, both fighters keep a high profile and ranking, DeGale gets much needed ego check, Groves keeps his which doctors neclace and they all meet up again in two years time and the promoters get a huge payday. Peace x

Kenny Anderson with a full training camp would destroy James De Gale inside 6 rounds.
