Default Re: British boxer jailed for 7 years for manslaughter

Given that the lad was involved in two incidents he's perhaps fortunate that he wasn't up on one himself.

What REALLY pisses me off is when people who cause death by dangerous driving or death due to driving whilst drunk/drugged get next to nothing. Drink drive killers should be executed. There's absolutely no excuse for driving whilst pissed. None.
Agree with this completely drink/dangerous driving deaths are given way too lenient sentences.

What the **** were you doing in that shit hole not expecting to get in a ruck. The only place I've seen a guy beat up a bird in a bar/pub. My mate bounced at the one opposite morrisons for one night and saw more fights in 4hours there than he did in two years at a bar on call lane.

He had previous for decking people on a night out.

He hit this lad and it was over, then they came together again near a Subway and he went over and decked him again. Scum.
If true then you've got to think he deserved 7 years. Obviously he never meant to kill the lad but if you as a person who trains in punching people go over and twat someone unnecessarily then you're putting them in serious danger.
