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.

Someones got to say something before Baldcat see's and has a field day. Sag dude it's fantacy (flight of), not real dude just Thomas Hauser having a laugh and joke at how funny a fight between both Roach and De la Hoya would be. Although i do agree with one part of it though i would make Roach a slight betting favorite. Peace x
Bearcat your 'cowards die many times before their deaths' comment struck a chord, its easy for someone to hide behind a computer and disrespect just about every non American citizen/boxer on the plannet. So i say to you Bearcat Cowards die many times before their deaths dude and your nine lives are just about up cat. Peace x
Hey Bearcat i bet you wouldn't call David Haye a coward to his face you muppet. As to the other post as to where Haye has gone after shouting his mustashe off, my guess is that after recently having another child he is doing the Father thing, you no sleepless nights, ****ty nappies, you get the message. As for his projected fight with Audley Harrison, in my oppinion if he takes this fight he will make himself look the bigest fraudster in heavyweight boxing after his ' stop fighting bums and fight me ' comments to Wladimir Klitchko. And with the projected Klitchko fights that have fallen through due to contractual/revenue differences he must now face a credible opponent or risk serious ridicule. I do believe Haye will face one of the Klitchko's next summer in a massive event in London or Germay so in the mean time were just going to have to put up with just about the most boring spell of heavyweight championship boxing and the pantomime that will undoubtably ensue. Peace x
wardstar: How many WBC champions does it take to take the pi$$? There is very soon going to be 3 in the middle weight division, 1 unified diamond encrusted superduper champ (and linear champ) Sergio Martinez, No 2 regular no frills middle of the range no super powers champ Sebastion Zbic and last and should be definatley least two guys i've never heard of fighting for the wait for it......Silver WBC title lmao the WBC and the WBA, (and the WBO, IBF, WBU, IBO, IBA, IBC, IBU, WBF and last but not least XYZ) should all be prosecuted under the trade description act as there is only one world so why so many 'world champions????????
Why has Sergio Martinez been stripped of his (for what its worth) WBO title? Answer: Martinez was probably stripped cos some European promoter bribed them to let two unknowns fight for it. Governing bodies rent out titles, promoters bribe and control fighters with them like a crack dealer does his junkies. If you think the WBO are corrupt then check out the WBA, they have now listed as featherweight champion 3 fighters, all decent by the way. Super duper long time champ Chris John, regular champ & top prospect Yorkis Gamboa and diet sugar free interim champ is unified super bantam champ Cellestine Caballero, confused? not half as confused as all the WBA featherweight champs are. Sorry for not posting a new message guys but i think i've been blocked from doing so (freedom of speech Lmao)
Trust me this fight will happen Del boy, initially i believed it would happen this summer in Vegas but it's now looking like it's gonna happen in November, again in Vegas (although if it where to happen in Dallas it could and probly would break modern attendance records by a mile). Mayweather's a great, great fighter, but he lives on another plannet where only he exists and if he was made of chocolate he would have ate himself along time ago, but credit where its due the guys an amazing athlete who would have been great at anything he did.
I belive though in Manny he faces someone who will give him zero respect and believe for the first time in his career Mayweather faces someone with the style, balls and chin to break his heart, someone who will put the fear of God into him and make him doubt him self, i may be wrong but i believe Manny will take an early beating, then come on strong in the last quater and drown Mayweather in leather. If Mayweather wins i'll be the first to congratulate him, if Manny wins i'll be in the 'Money'
