What are your ealy memories of boxing then?
i'm 40 so probably like yourself the BBC in the late seventies and early eighties. I remember falling asleep during sportsnight almost every week mind. ****ing knackered i was.
i didn't really get into boxing seriously until mid to late eighties and even then preferred the amateurs.
As for pro's well i always admired Hagler, Benn, Scott Harrison, thaxton (who i've followed since he hammered paul ryan) and i've always hated heayweights. I haven't really followed seriously for a few years now.
Danny Green fought for his WBA title 2 minutes from my house here in perth a few weeks ago. i could have had a free ticket but couldn't be ****ed going.
