Its easy being a fan of Arsenal, Roy Jones or Roger Federer.

Havnt read his book, waiting for the paperback copy as im a tight bastard.
Johnny Nelson was my favourite fighter for the last few years of his career. I don't know quite what it was about him that made me a fan - maybe just that he's such a cool guy. Some of his fights were boring but I had to watch them to make sure he won.

I rate him as the best pundit on the Sky team. The only one to pick PBF before the DLH fight and the only one to actually have him winning it afterwards! If I recall correctly Glen McCrory said something silly like "the pound for pound best around Oscar De La Hoya" when asked who would win.
